In response to those who questioned our OLs pass blocking, with Kap or Colt in it didn't matter
. Both of those guys play so fast it's like, bing-bing-bing, and next play. For those Colt doubters, it was obvious that he has already learned the playbook, and that gives him a huge leg up on other #2 competition. Also, he looks like a bona fide starter at a lot of other places. No names, but ...ok, raiders, bills, Miami, and he could compete with a bunch of others. I am just delighted he put the work in to learn the playbook( no mean feat) and then came out and played, well....like he belonged here. Nobody is going to replace a true one of a kind Kap. But 18 of 32 starters didn't start a number of games last yr at QB due to injury. It is really just a matter of numbers. You have to factor in losing your QB for a period of time. Matter of fact, I think Colt could start for the Vikes. Problem there, as it had been here(for about 10 yrs) and about 28 other cities in NFL, is crappy coaching. While other coaches are struggling to decided who is #1, Coach H has been diligently working on a bona fide replacement starter for this team who can play in Kap like fashion. And he found him. All this b.s. about playing colt 2 and a half qtrs. to make him better trade bait? You gotta be kidding.
WE know all about crappy coaching, especially with Bill Walsh to compare to. But you know what? I believe JH is going to give Coach Walsh a run for his money. NO SBs yet, but let's see if he gets one this yr. Then after that, we'll see. Just think about coaching around the league. So many losers you can't count them. And we got Jim Harbaugh. What an incredible stroke of luck he came to STanford to coach. Stanford is kinda like the 49ers training ground for 49er coaches. Story isn't written yet, but JH looks like one of the top 2 or 3 coaches in the game. He seems to have a huge advantage with his GM, who is hell on wheels for assessing talent... and I think JH is equally adapt there too.
As for LMJ's detractors, I saw some of his not so hot plays...most of which were not his fault. Thing about LMJ, Hunter, and Gore, is the are all SO QUICK fast.
And I saw that in LMJ last nite. Still haven't looked at tape, but he looked smooth, never got ruffled, and danced and juked all over the place. A couple plays that made him look bad was the OL. Overall, I really liked him. Man we got a bevy of RBs and WRs. Cuts are gonna be heartbreaking, in that I would like to see us carry them all...but know that is pipe dreaming. Our starting 5 WRs before Crabs and Mario get back? wow, who woulda guessed we ended up with talent to burn at WR? That is just great talent assessment and that includes guys not drafted also. TRent and JH really did it right, and actually turned AJ into a big positive, both $$ wise and talentwise.
