First off I want to say the 49ers are one of the best teams in the NFL.
The last play should of been isolated to the other side cb (maxwell vs crabtree)
Why was it decided to isolate and throw against seattles best defender Sherman?
I believe it was because of Harbaugh once again wanting to keep Sherman down.
Let me ask this question why didn't Harbaugh draft Sherman and Baldwin (his own Stanford players) to the 49ers? Word is Harbaugh gave the impression to NFL scouts that Sherman was not a good player even though he led Stanford as a receiver his freshman and sophomore year. (That proves that he has talent) Also his statistics in his first years of the NFL prove he is a great talent.
Baldwin "My junior year, I was actually going to transfer," Baldwin said. "I had the transfer papers already filled out on my behalf, and I was very close. Basically, it came down to whether my mother was going to let me do it or not." Mom said no, so Baldwin stuck it out and posted career highs with 58 catches for 857 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior in 2010, Harbaugh's final season before the 49ers hired him. "There's nothing against him, nothing personal. It's just a guy that coached me through college, and you want to show him that I'm as good as I think I am."
2011 6th round draft Ronald Johnson WR over Baldwin who was not drafted but now will have a nice payday with seattle.
How would you feel if your own coach did this to you. Causing you to lose millions and not even be drafted?
Is it karma that Baldwin & Sherman were the 2 most important factors in seattles win over the 49ers?
Doug Baldwin 106 yards receiving and returned a kickoff 69 yards.
Can you imagine how much stronger the 49ers would have been with Sherman and Baldwin?
Kapernick has a great future ahead of him but should replace his cockiness with confidence.
