I read the article, it's a good read... calm yourself, deep breaths...
It is a really interesting article and that not just the homer talking. We are uniquely built in that regard. There are not a lot of teams that have the kind of line we have before you even consider the lead blocking and TE's. If we were smaller and more agile we might not be as successful. Add to that Kaep has a distinct size advantage on most of the other QB's flirting with this system and you can see why there is less fear on the coaching staff's part that he will be taken out of the game by the kind of hits RGIII exposed himself too on the regular last year.

This. RG3 became really careless whereas Kaepernick was always trying to be evasive, never moving towards direct contact, using his feet well to slide, on a lot of his bigger runs, he simply went untouched, just like in both touchdown runs against the Packers in the playoffs.
Good read
Cool article. I like when they give pictures and break plays down like that, very informative.

This site has real Mods that are fair/not scared... their sites have COWARDS running the show--that's REAL
As I hinted earlier, what makes the 49ers' offense so potent is that they could line up in any play and dominate the trenches with raw power, such is the run-blocking prowess in the side, but the read-option allows them to focus that strength on a single point of attack, blowing a hole in the defense that is too big for one defender to close quickly. Even on plays where the defense knows its assignments and plays them well, they just have too much power and drive focused on a single spot for the run to fail to gain 5 or more yards.
