This morning on NFL AM, they posted a great question for debate. And it was who needs the win more on Saturday?
I'm trying to remember what they all said, so please dont quote me exactly, but it's almost verbatum.
M. Kriegal--- "Definitely Harbaugh, 70 % completion rate, top 5 QB, helped get your team to the playoffs, I just think it's an unprecedented move. If this little experiment doesnt work, and they lose this game, people will question Harbaugh, and his players will, and fan base as well. Some like to act like it wont be a big deal but he'll have a lot of answering to do, for what he thought was gonna work. You do know that even tho he made the change, he could be wrong as well right. Lets not take that out of the realm just because he's the HC."
S.Wyche--- "Kaepernick definitely, he was put in prematurely, and has done some good thing. And dont get me wrong the kid has skills, but I still cant see making this QB change when it didnt have to be made. I understand that Harbs feels that Kaep may be the one to take them over the top. I just think he should of waited, and this Saturday, it's part of the reason why I think that Rodgers and Co. will win this Saturday.
E. Davis----"Ok, how can you ask who needs it more. It's a loaded question. The team needs it more. I mean I understand what your saying. Harbs made the change because he felt that Kaep would take them farther this year. Simple as that, now if it doesnt pan out then so be it, and Harbs will have to answer some questions. But i mean you guys act like they were guarenteed to win a SB with A. Smith. He made a decision, and if it was the wrong one, then he'll have to atone for that. But it was his decision."
Then it became Davis vs. Wyche and Kriegal. IN which the jist of what they said was this, Davis, continued in regards to there was no guarantee that they would of won with Smith, and they said yeah your right, but you dont bench a guy that just got u almost a game within the SB, he starts 6-2, top 5 QB, 70% completion, And has proved he could win a playoff game the first time he got in one.
Was a pretty heated debate I have to say. What do u guys think?
