The only way you get Seattle out of that defense is to put a group of good pass receivers in a spread formation and force them to move one of those 8 guys back out of the box.
Last year the Seahawks spread the field, forcing the 49ers to defend the space, and then ran Lynch up the open gaps. They did pretty much the same thing again tonight.
Amazing how something so simple can go unnoticed by a professional coaching staff. I don't get it.
Harbaugh sees it. He is just too stubborn to change.
At some point in the broadcast tonight, one of the announcers compared the styles of Carroll and Harbaugh. They characterized Harbaugh as being "old school" football. That description fits. He is Bo Schembechler reincarnate.
That was the problem tonight, he wasn't Bo Schembechler or the '86 Bears which is what we should've been, hard nosed, scar ya' a$$ pound them into the ground, ol' school football is what we needed and it didn't happen...G-Ro and Harbaugh need to go back and pull some plays from 2011-2012 and get back to two tight end sets, Power I's, Jumbo/Elephant packages, crack-back blocks and when they pound the living crap outta of the trenches, then sprinkle in some of that Pistol every other other play to keep the defense guessing all night

I don't think it's Boldins fault. You hit the nail on the head though. The FO knew what was up. Jenkins was the answer and unfortunately it's turned into the most of epic of fails. I mean honestly I think we win this game with Crab.
Jenkins isn't Baalke's only fail there are lots more did yall enjoy Cordarrelle Patterson's 105 yard TD today he's the WR/KR Baalke passed over and how about his big draft pick Reid can't even make it through his 2nd NFL game!!!!! lolz
No one on our offense did anything tonight. Nothing else to say.
But what stood out (other than Marshawn Lynch killing us again) was Seattle's pass rush. While Baalke is giving away our spare pass rushers for seventh round picks John Schneider is flat out stockpiling them. They have five pass rushers (Bennet, Avril, Irvin, Clemons,Schofield) they all make life miserable for your pass protection.

Aaron Rodgers: At Seattle 2012: 223 yards, ZERO TD's, 81 Rating... The best QB in the NFL.
There's no QB in the league you could replace Colin with and say they would have won the game today. Peyton? Aaron Rodgers? Who would they have thrown to?
Only one QB in 49er history who might have -- Steve Young, because of his combination of smarts and scrambling ability. Heck, even Joe Montana couldn't have won it (I'm committing blasphemy I know...but this is true).
So that leads me to this point -- Colin gives us our best chance to win in the widest variety of situations. I know he could have done better this game, and he has a LOT to learn (reading defenses, when to tuck and run, game clock management, etc.), but I'm glad he's our QB.
