Originally posted by GNielsen:I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that the Niners can't win in Seattle based on that last butt-kicking they took up there. That game was the result of the Niner defense being tired from the previous game in New England and the fact that it was the first game played without Justin Smith in the lineup. I'm also guessing a full off-season for Kaepernick will include a number of strategies for dealing with the noise up there. I expect them to add no-huddle to their bag of tricks next year. No huddle has a tendency to cut down on crowd noise because they have to sustain the noise instead of stopping and then building it. And, it will include a more sophisticated set of hand signals.
I think losing Cowboy was especially huge in that game, I mean they literally ran at RJF like he was a turnstile. Aldon was getting manhandled by both the TE and Okung without Cowboy in there.
I agree, CK will work on signals and for crying out loud quit screwing with the play. Trying to change a play there was a BAD idea. I have seen it before, I wish Santa Clara was going to be built like that, but the Chickens fan doesn't quit. They have the stadium and they scream to no end. It sucks there for sure. Then, when they get a delay (which CK will also work on) they just get louder.i have yet to go to a game there that the fans weren't yelling the whole game. Even when Erickson was coach they were like that. I HATE THAT PLACE. I just wish we would go in there and stomp them early, for once please. In 2006 it got quiet, but when the games are close, they are crazy.
We couldn't do anything right that game, I hope it was because they were tired, but they just killed us everywhere. Kaep only had a couple, maybe three drives that looked good and even then it got ugly. Gore fumbles down 14, we get the ball back and just when you think they have a chance, VD gets blasted and the FG gets blocked for a TD. AAAARRGGHH!!
