I still don't get the worries many fans have about Kaep, I just don't. It's like many watched a completely different season. When I saw Kaep pass form the pocket I saw a dangerous QB. When I saw him out the pocket I saw very dangerous QB. Would people rather Kaep sit back in the pocket like a statue and take sacks just to honor a philosophy? Kaep plays the game that's in front of him and how the D plays him.
People need to stop being so fuking at the success we're having, root for the type of player Kaep is, and stop b***hing about the kind of player they think Kaep isn't or they think he needs to be!! I'm quite sure JH & Co. have a firm grip on what Kaep needs to improve on and I'm pretty sure it isn't what many think. I don't think Kaep has a pocket passing issue. In my mind, the biggest thing Kaep needs to improve on is "prove it". Continue to prove why JH let Alex Smith remain on the bench. Prove to the rest of the league that that SB run was no fluke (like many idiots are implying). Prove to the resat of the league (and some doubting fans) that he is elite. Prove that he is the "real deal" that obviously some fans don't think he is.

For all you so-called fans gargling on the balls of Russell Wilson keep this in mind: Russell Wilson was a rookie that played a very soft schedule and, thus, snuck up on teams. Had they had a playoff schedule like we had the outcome likely would have been altogether different. Also, keep in mind that Kaep was groomed for a season under perhaps the best coaching staff in the game, with coaches who actually teach. So if anything it's Russell Wilson who'll be more likely to experience a sophomore slump.

This season, the Seabuzzards will be brought back to earth.

I think Seattle had an incredible streak of luck last year at times, every bounce seemed to go exactly their way......the odds that continues into this upcoming season are basically zero. I think they'll come back to earth a bit this season, as much as people talked about the lucky bounces that the 49ers got in 2011, Seattle went well beyond that, I mean they won with a game winning interception for crying out loud.

I don't think enough people here give Seattle the respect they deserve. I hate them like everyone else but they've built quite a great team over there. I don't think they have a weak position at all.

Smart move.

Teams have been interested in Donatel. Maybe his contract will be ending soon?

Up at the end of this upcoming season, he can walk if he wants.
Habaugh is getting ready for the inevitable. Either Vic or Roman will be snatched after this season. If Vic goes, I'd say Donatel go to D-coordinator and Mangini go to D-back coordinator.

Well, then you go right ahead and respect the heck out of them. As far as I'm concerned most people around here acknowledge that they are the toughest competition the Niners face. That sounds like respect to me. I happen to agree with the prediction that they will not do as well as their fans expect them to this next season mainly because they have a much harder schedule than they did last year. Five 10 AM games? Give me a break. Personally, I don't hate them at all. I don't hate any team.

I don't think Magini will take a position coach job.

Yup. Plus they have a bunch of low character guys over there just waiting to implode. Think the last generation of the Bengals and current Lions. Their saving grace is Wilson. Hopefully we can learn to Corrall his ass. Thankfully the game at C-Block stadium is early in the year,

Speak, Bro., speak!! And, let us not forget that the Seabuzzards have become the darlings of the NFC West to many in the media.

You really think Mangini would come back to NFL coaching as a position coach? Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't mind things falling that ay if we lost Fangio. I just don't know if Mangini would go for that. Seems kind of below him.

Offensive line. Okung is good, but fragile. Unger is better than average. That's it.

DCs are not position coaches. They are coordinators. Generally that job is one step away from HC. Norv had to man a coordinator position between HC jobs, Linehan was a HC who has been stuck at OC since fired, Marinelli went from HC to DL coach, back up to DC. My point is, Manging didn't have the kind of success that buys him "HC or nothing" clout. My guess is, Donatell leaves after this year, and Mangini winds up coaching DBs for a season or two. Then, Fangio dries up into dust and Mangini takes over the defense, where he stays until he dies (most NFL HCs only get two strikes).

He's got football smarts, he's pretty un-flappable, he's got good pocket presence, a cannon for an arm, speed, quickness, great work ethic and one of the best ten-game beginnings for any pro QB ever.

So, I'm going to say tats and a flat-brimmed cap.
G said nothing wrong . that pocket presence is something I never thought about until he got the job and even in his first game, after it was pointed out by my daughter and good fans like you,, that he is simply able to do things that alex can not do in the pocket.I think that is the biggest thing of all

Exactly. They're very good, but if you had to pick the weakest link, that's it. And, I think the Niners FO realizes that and is trying to get even better at pass rushing to exploit that weakness. They simply must find a way to contain Russell Wilson in the pocket and smother him before he starts running around in circles for 16 seconds in the backfield.
