Kaep is a star, and brought us to the brink of victory with his incredible play. It's not his fault Roman s**t the bed first and goal to go or that the refs swallowed their whistle on a holding call when literally every chance they got to flag the niners (except on the Soap hit on Flacco rolling out) they threw the flag.
Your not a star in my eyes until you win the bowl.
Why all the love for Kaep tonight? Did he not have any part in this loss? I just don't get the blind love he gets? I get the potential and the big plays but am I to disregard the bad as well? What did he do in the first half (6 points). Did he not throw a huge pick? Did he not cost us to's that we really needed?
Yeah, he helped in the comeback but didn't the special teams help out with a huge punt return spotting our O at the 20? Didn't our D get a huge fumble recovery putting the ball inside their 30?
Whatever, I place blame on all phases in this game. The O stunk it up in the fist half and put us in another hole. Our D played subpar again. And our coachs didn't adjust fast enough.
Tough loss to take but I'm hopeful we can make it back for another great run at it next year. Time is ticking though.
