Have just seen the game... Carolina did a good job in combination of putting the Niners in bad field position -- inside the 10 and at the 1-- late in the second half, and very good defense. Niners still had a couple of chances to put a drive together and get a field goal, but we couldn't freak'n move the ball.
I just wish Kaep would reconsider on some of his scrambles. We were in bad field position late in the game. A couple of Kaep's scramble actually made worse by taking a sack. He should just throw the ball away to keep breathing room for the offense, and make Carolina's D less aggressive. Kaep did took some of the check downs in the game. On that overthrown ball to Boldin, when we were trying to get out from deep inside our own goal line needing 3rd&7, he had both Gore and McDonald. There was a LB in between both of them. The defender had to make a choice who to cover. Had Kaep thrown to either Gore or McDonald, it would have been a conversion for either Gore or McDonald ,especially, to get the extra 2yds.
As it is, he went to the getting open Boldin, but late and overthrew.
When a couple of these late 90+ yards drives doesn't work out, it makes you appreciate one when the next time it turned into a scoring drive, because it's so tough to do.
