SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS CAROLINA PANTHERS GAMEDAY THREAD (WEEK 10)

I'm sorry I can't remember who posted a response to me saying that they weren't confident Kap would be able to "turn on the (passing) hose" if it was necessary. I said I thought he could. The way things are right now it looks like he can't. So that's some crow I've got to eat.

One game at a time. I thought there was a pretty good chance the 9ers would beat Carolina and lose to the Saints. If we can beat the Saints, then for me the team's record will be at pretty much what I thought it would be anyway. Plus, beating the Saints in NO would go a long way toward reassuring the team that they can go the distance and the rest of the league not to make too much out of the loss to the Panthers. Beat the Saints!

what's alex smith's record???

Last I checked Alex Smith doesn't have a record the Chiefs do. If you are implying that the 9ers would have a better record with Smith instead of Kap you are kidding yourself. Alex is riding a team that is winning with him not BECAUSE of him just like always. However if you feel that sentimental about it I am sure the Chiefs could use another fan.

So you are saying the Chiefs would be 9-0 with Matt Cassell?

No one here is a Chiefs fan, people just root for the guy that almost took us to the superbowl,had a great season, and got replaced some would say unfairly, but never b***hed about it. The guy is pure class , why not root for him to be successful? It is natural for fans to say what if and compare his and Kaep's year. Look what happened with Montana and Young. Yeah, I will root for him as long as he doesn't play the 49ers.
I root for Alex Smith as well. Guy's a class act. He was stabbed in the back by our honorless head coach, Jim "Backstabbin" Harbaugh. What a blunder by Harb's.

Jim has balls and sometimes you got to cut the "nice guy" loose and move on. Doesn't matter if he is right or wrong he took a chance and he's working through it with Kap. If he was a backstabber he would have cut Alex the second he drafted Kap and Alex's career would be in the trash bin right now. No team would have given him the time of day if Jim didn't save his career. Jim has only ever said good things about Alex no matter what. Just because he isn't praising Alex at Kaps expense doesn't mean he betrayed him. Sorry if you disagree but Alex has no killer instinct whatsoever. Even if you don't like him or the s**t he does at least Kap is bold about himself and it shows in the way he plays and Harbaugh is the exact same.

They are polar opposites so it doesn't surprise me he isn't here anymore. Everybody cares about Alex's feelings because he's such a good guy myself included. He is a lot like Tim Tebow in that way.

I love Alex just like the next man, but damn talk about a knee-jerk and select memory illness lol!! How quickly have you forgotten ALL THE YEARS of purgatory, irrelevance, and ineptitude, widely known as the "ALEX IN WONDERLAND" years; Under the once thought of BUST, laughing stock of the league, dubious Alex "should have drafted A-Rod" SMITH, having once lost his staring job to EVEN Shaun Hill?????

Look Alex improved mighty over the last few years, and I will always appreciate his class and contributions, but at best he is an average, underneath, short completion, and game managing QB who in 6+ years of work, failed to do what OUR QB Kaep has done in only 1...Playing for a SUPERBOWL!! Good luck to Alex, ill take The Kaepgun 100 times out of 100, even if he struggles Gregs "Greco-Roman" Ancient Offense!!

Pretty sure thats exactly what Ravens fans were saying at this time last season. I don't have a lot of hope due to the offensive playcalling but crazier things have happened, you get Crabtree back, this offense gets healthy, you give them a shot in the playoffs, an experienced veteran team and anything can happen. First they have to get in however. But seeing as how much success wild card teams have had recently in winning the Superbowl, who knows, with this level of defense, the 49ers will always have a puncher's chance, with the defense holding other teams down, if they can hit on a few big plays on offense, they could steal a few games.


I'm interested to see what things will look like on offense with Crabtree, VD, Boldin and Manningham all together along with this running game.


Not saying you don't have a point, but that to me is more like hoping for the best as opposed to a realistic take on the current state of the 9ers.

Talking of VD, I am beginning to think he has become too fragile ever since that hit by Chancellor in last Dec. Believe me, he is going to get hit much worse than he did in this game by the likes of Browner and Chancellor when we play them in Dec nevermind the playoffs. I just don't think Vernon can handle that kind of physicality anymore. Frankly, overall I just don' think we are that tough a team. We are physical when compared to the average run-of-the-mill team, but within the category of "tough teams" so to speak, we are probably just average.
Realistics new definition....Make a new screen name and be as caustic an anti-fan as you can possibly manage and insult anyone who doesnt fit into your view that the season is over after one game. Bonus points if you can call players and coaches names and act like a giant tough guy with your enormous internet muscles.

WOW, its extremely sad and embarrassing that we have one of the GAMES BEST (albeit not the fastest), Most CLUTCH, and Most Accomplished Assassins at WRs, the Superbowl Champion Antwan "Velco Hands" Boldin.... fresh off dominating our 2ndary in his 2nd SUPERBOWL appearance AND Future HOF Venon Davis, and our FULLBACK comes to mind?? Really ?? lol
AB and VD at TE, even while getting double teamed, game planned for, and schemed out of game b/c of Romans predictably unimaginative Pop Warner play-calling has had a great season, and while Crabs is my FAV Niner, I'm now CERTAIN that our WRs (albiet when def cud use a DownFLD WR) are the problem at all really (sans Kyle and VM small hands). But OUR Mickey Mouse OC "Greco-Romans" Ancient Play-Calling and complete failure to properly utilize the talent we have on this team is the Biggest Problem period IMO!! It doesn't matter who suits up for the Niners on the other side of field with Crabs, Fitzgerald, Dez, or Marshall...they'd all be begging to get traded, or released only to go thrive elsewhere



For Results and Sample Case Study see= Ex-49er Tedd Ginn Jr thrive in a run first, somewhat offensively limited Carolina Panthers squad!!

So for those saying you were going to blow out the Panthers, how you feeling this morning? Told you our D was no joke

Yeah, even I was laughing at all the homers in here...over confidence = Freddie P. Soft. Hats off to the Panthers (totally thought that was a fumble by VD, BTW). Losing VD (basically, 1/2 our passing game) and Reid was big but big props to Dahl who made a critical stop in the 4Q. This one, by FAR, was on the coaches. Once VD went out, HaRoMan were screwed...had no answer. 0 points in the second half and the Panthers were feeding off the formation/alignments...run or pass formationss were completely telegraphed. I liked that they (run) blitzed creatively to bring pressure...played very physical and down hill. Cam had a pretty poor day (tons of high passes). If he completes those, this game isn't even close. TO's killed us naturally (will kill any team). But enjoy your victory...they are legit and if they continue to build, they have a real shot in the playoffs.

Yup, we run a college offense. Nothing more. Even Boldin was going off on the sidelines...looked PISSED. As he should be.
I just can't believe we could not grab one of the 2 fumbles on Carolina's last drive. Amazing..

Would we have been able to do anything with it if we had?

i really do not think so, the offense seemed deflated from the time they chose not to go for it on fourth and one
I think our biggest mistake of the game was not going for it on 4th and 1 from the Panthers 2.

You are so likely to pick up a yard and have the entire play boom available to you. Plus the odds are very low Carolina goes 98 yards if you fail to convert.
