But to be fair, just in case:
1) Lock-down secondary
-- You counter this with the run. They've been vulnerable to the run lately, look for us to power our way and then break a few to the outside to keep them honest
2) Kaepernick's inability to go through progressions
-- I'm sick of hearing this. Don't listen to the media. If you watch carefully on replays, Kap's eyes go from one to two to sometimes even three. His problem isn't the progressions, the problem is that he doesn't trust what he sees. That'll get better over time.
3) The inability to audible--
You answered the question in your question: hand signals. It worked for us all year and it has worked for every other team.
4) Snap count
-- This is what makes their home-field advantage so tough. This is probably the only legitimate concern in my opinion. But we haven't done too bad the past few times with this. Our issues have been multiple, but snap count generally hasn't been one of them. (Getting the play off in time? That's a different story)
5) Lack of fullback
-- Dixon is enough. And Tuk is back at practice anyway. We don't need a DL to block to be effective. Seattle's LBs aren't huge anyway, they're average size but just flat out fast.
