Morning Tailgate: Nov. 26

Posted by Alex Espinoza on November 26, 2012 – 11:28 AM

The 49ers are simply spoiled at quarterback. Second-year signal-caller Colin Kaepernick is gaining believers nationwide after he helped lead the 49ers to a 31-21 road victory at New Orleans in his second career start on Sunday, following San Francisco’s 6-2-1 start to the season with Alex Smith.

Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group examined the big 49ers win, while his colleague Mark Purdy focused on the quarterbacks situation after the game.

“It’s all quite entertaining to discuss,” Purdy wrote. “We keep learning more about Kaepernick with every passing day. Donte Whitner, the 49ers safety who also scored on an interception return, has become friendly with Kaepernick because the two often find themselves working out simultaneously at the team’s practice facility in Santa Clara. Whitner said that Kaepernick is often the first man to show up on the premises.”

Today’s Morning Tailgate rounds up more headlines from New Orleans and shows you why it pays to wear a 49ers jacket when walking around the Bay Area.

Peter King of Sports Illustrated thought the 49ers made the right choice with Kaepernick on Sunday.

Mike Sando of ESPN.com said the team victory trumped any quarterback discussion after the Week 12 win.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com wrote that Kaepernick and the defense led the 49ers to victory.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee examined Kaepernick after his two solid starts.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle discussed Ahmad Brooks’ game-changing interception return for a touchdown.

Peter Hartlaub of the San Francisco Chronicle shared the story of a lucky Faithful Fan who had an encounter with 49ers CEO Jed York.

Maiocco broke down the strong defensive effort by the 49ers, which included two return touchdowns.

Barrows spoke to Brooks following his big game in the 31-21 win.

Maiocco addressed fan questions regarding the future of rookies LaMichael James and A.J. Jenkins.

Inman discussed the quarterback situation after Kaepernick’s strong start.

Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle gave his take on the 49ers quarterbacks.

Don Banks of Sports Illustrated commented on the current state of the 49ers.

49ers.com provided a recap of the big road win (video/story/photos) and also looked at the contributions from Kaepernick and the defense. Scott Kegley and Taylor Price of 49ers.com also broke down the victory in the latest edition of Cover 2 presented by AAA.

    very good game last night

    I was a little surprised when Harbaugh did start CK after Alex was cleared, but I was excited to see if Kaep could play at a high level again and I think he did that. One of the hardest (if not the hardest) avenues to play in and he did really well.

    He will go through his growing pains and have some bad games (but Alex has them too). I say the more experience he gets before the playoffs the better off we will be. Alex could not have made some of those throws CK did yesterday and would have been sacked a couple of more times. However Harbaugh goes, I am all in with him. The coaches see these two all week long.

    Team, Team, Team is what Smith’s all about. Although he didn’t start I think he appreciates being on a winning team and shouldn’t be upset. For the long haul it’s better to be 100% healthy to perform than just getting cleared a day before game time. The D has been performing at a high level the past two games, now they need to prove it against the Rams that we can stuff the run.

    after watching coach harbaugh’s press conference today, it is quite clear that CK7 will be the starter the rest of the way. it is now up to the defense and running game to help kap out, the same way way it helped alex out, to help this team to win a super bowl. Im all for whatever coach desides, he hasn’t let us down yet, but man, is it me, or is he playing with fire messing around with the starting qb at this point of the season during a super bowl push? well, it makes for every game the rest of the way that much more exciting

    The hit that launched a dynasty PART 2? When Jets linebacker Mo Lewis slammed into Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe near the sideline late in a Week 2 game at New York on Sept. 23, 2001, it initially looked like a very bad break for New England. What happened that season when a 2nd year untested QB started the rest of the way? Just saying.

  11. By dave g. on Nov 26, 2012 | Reply

    I like Alex and want to see us win with him and believe we can but in all reality (leaving your emotions out for a minute), Kaepernick is the future. The real question is how soon is that future? This should not be about liking Alex or not liking Alex. Real men do not make decisions based on that. Its about us WINNING. (period) Be logical, and free of girly emotions. We can win with both BUT only the coaches trully know who gives us the best chance now. WE ARE NOT SMARTER THAN THEM WHEN IT COMES TO THESE DECISIONS. If you think you are you are a dellusional arm chair, fantasy, John Madden playing QB.

    temper couldn’t agree with you more, Kap, played very well, fun game to watch. But lets not forget our Nasty killer defense controlled the Bears game last week. And yesterday our Nasty killer defense scored 12 points which added up to 14, take those off the board where are we?

    Right on the Money! we as fans need to get behind Harbaugh cuz we cant do any better than him at making decision. he knows what hes doing, leave all that emotional stuff aside, all that loyalty nonsense out.

  14. By 9erdog on Nov 26, 2012 | Reply

    Your wrong loyalty means a lot! The 9ers have been a family, and players become part of that family. And it becomes very important when you want to sign free agents, they want to know that you have their back. Winning means a lot but its not everything, not at all!

  15. By 9erdog on Nov 26, 2012 | Reply

    I understand that a coach has to make tough choices, when coach needed Alex he was Alex’s best buddy. And in return all Alex did was to win for us! Now coach has Kap, I guess? ?
    Understand I know that this is football and players replace players thats how it all works. I just believe this could have! should have! been handled better, if in fact thats how this runs?

  16. By Bobby on Nov 26, 2012 | Reply

    Family or not, Alex Smith needs to understand that coach or daddy wants to try out little brother, cuz he shows great signs of talent. As a human it would be hard for anyone to give up such a position, but Alex needs to sit back and let the show go on. Harbaugh used Smith to get us where we are, now he sees sumthing in Kap that can get us even further, i beg anyone that doesnt know football to comments or differ on that. And dont bring up “Oh alex smith got us to the championship”, (in the words of sam widwikes’ father in transformers, “HOW LONG YOU GONNA RIDE THAT TRAIN?”. I dont think this matter was handled incorrectly, smith got concussed, harbaugh took the opportunity to start his young qb and it was a success. If Harbaugh had gone with Kap from the beginning of the season, then maybe youd have sumthing to discuss, hate to see what yall be saying then. Things played out as they should have, harbaugh got an opportunity to try out his new weapon and pounced on it. Harbaugh, Take us to the superbowl. baby lets go

    This is where Alex Smith shows his loyalty to the team. This is where we see wether hes bout the team or jus having his position. Well see if acts as a team player n provides help to Kap or if he jus sits back with a mad face grumbling throwing a hissy fit bout starting.

    wow …ok both games were won based on how the niners work ….get a lead and set the defense loose..plain and simple …CK keeps drives alive and does a very good job at the line reading defenses and makes em pay if they doubt his ability …..

  22. By 11yearswithalex on Nov 26, 2012 | Reply

    it goes like this CK got us the lead and the defense got to do their thing …alex would have lost both games …..the bears practiced for smith and when colin started they could not up and change their scheme on the fly …they tried to blitz and tried to tussel the QB and got burned …i saw several and i mean a lot of spots on 3rd adn long where alex would have done the famous checkdown and by the way those drives went for TD’s not 3 and outs …..all specualtion but take your ego out of it and watch from a football perspective and it is obvious …..CK ,akes some throws i have not seen for a long time from the niners and you can not tell me that it has not sparked the team and the defense is now trying to keep up and do their job …the niners are hot real hot and evey game alex starts the jury and half the team are out wondering how long this train will go and if it will ever win a superbowl,….with CK the team is on track and focused and doing all they can and more

    give CK some credit he was not ready last year and worked all last year and half the season getting it right …coming in 3 hours ealry every day and staying late …this is a profession and if a guy works harder than you you get replaced …….great work CK keep it up lots of fans are behind you and cant wait for you to get your shot to bring us another ring ….6-0 …….

    CK was picked for a reason and worked his but off and now he is getting his shot …he came in a game we were loseing and brought us to within a winning field goal that was missed it happens …..then started in 2 huge games for a rookie QB and managed 2 great games and won them both and yes he did throw a pick and the defense responded and said hey kid we got you keep doing your stuff ….it was bound to happen and the net result was a spanking of the saints in the dome ………..nice job ..great job and does not show any sign of slowing down or haveing any problem running the offense and wasteing no time in getting TD’s

  25. By 11yearswithalex on Nov 26, 2012 | Reply

    alex scoffed at the offer he got and tested the freeagent offers of wich he got one for rookie money form the dolphins and then accepted the offer …yeah really loyal there …he thought he was sooo good and wanted even more money even though he got 60 million for doing nothing for 4 years …….then one ok season under a coach who came from college any other coach in the league would have sent him on his way ….and he scoffs at the contract from the only team he can play on ………yeah real loyal ……..took 60 million and never looked back or appologized ……and now he is crying because oh he feels so mistreated ,,,,what are the niners suposed to waste another 8 years on him are they suposed to be a team that could do something but …just cant get there …..a team that sees its really good players leave after several seasons of average QBing and then the team will have to do a total rebuild and wait another 8 years for any good players to emerge ….the niners are now and need to make that push and show just how good they are now ……the team responds to CK and is plastering teams at will ….i say awesome ….or we can just go back to the dump off show and waste away into nothingness

    No one can say there hasn’t been a double-standard here:
    All of the anti-Alex crowd talked about how Colin Kaepernick made Vernon Davis relevant again as a receiving option. Then Davis was chip-blocking against the blitz-happy Saints, and his stat line came up empty. And no one has said a thing about that.

    All of the anti-Alex crowd talked about how Colin Kaepernick was critical to the win of the 49ers over the Saints. If it were Alex Smith who threw fewer touchdown completions to 49ers than Drew Brees did, he would be raked over the coals.

    I’m inclined to believe that a quarterback that earns a 94.7% in-game completion rate in a complete-team win against a team that had been considered one of the NFL’s best defenses at the time has confirmed his right to start games. People talk about Alex Smith’s supposed ‘plateau’ two years into his complete deconstruction, but there’s no way they saw that coming.

    All of you Alex Smith sympathizers are so funny, you all know in your work, as soon as your employer finds someone, Younger, cheaper, and better than you, your gone. Those of you that are employers, as soon as you find someone YOUNGER, CHEAPER, AND BETTER, you’ll replace whoever you thought you were committed to.

    I think a lot of long time niner fans need a breath of fresh air at QB and are used to the big plays downfield from previous QBs. Ever since Smith took the role, a lot of checkdowns to Gore have become too common. (gore has led team in receptions).

    However, when a starting QB gets injured, the backup QB is supposed to fill his role and win games UNTIL the starting QB is no longer injured. Kaepernick did a great job doing what he supposed to do. Now that our starter is healthy, Smith should indeed start. Smith had already earned the starting job in 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2010. And again in 2012?

    Harbaugh and Roman should call randy moss’ number on more plays and let Smith throw it downfield. He is capable of it. I just think changing the QB at this stage of the season is too big a gamble to let our Super Bowl run slip away. We were one step away last year and it slipped through the fingers… Literally.

    Let Alex start and finish the season.

    Jollar, i disagree. These guys are in it to win a Superbowl. In just 2 1/2 games, Colin has changed the impact of the offense. That impact has enhanced the energy of the team. We havent seen these type of big plays in a decade. Yes, he’ll make more mistakes than Alex but he’ll also make a lot more plays. This league is about making plays. I dont see Harbaugh changing that.

    I have said many times that I aint no alex hugger. he was left overs from a bad period in 49ers history, but harbaugh saw enough in him to keep the ship sailing untill he could develop his own qb. with this running game and defense harbaugh saw an oppurtunity and ran with it. im sure he was more than mildly surprised at the success alex has had up to this point. knowing he was going to make a change eventually, this move was inevitable..alex has been playing at a very productive level, and it seems to me that CK7 has outplayed alex in practice, forcing harbaugh to make this change now, making that april 1st release date of alex that much easier. lets just hope that the growing pains that CK7 is about to go through doesnt cost us a super bowl. I have faith in coach harbaugh’s EVERY decision, even if I dont agree with it,,,IN HARBAUGH WE TRUST

    You’re contradicting yourself. I’ll go ahead and repeat your most useful info since it applies.

    If you think Kaepernick is the quarterback of the future, why plug him in today? If your argument was that Smith was winning games only because of the defense and rushing attack, why is it that Kaepernick deserves to be the starter when he does exactly what Smith does but with less consistency? If your argument is that Kaepernick is more explosive than Smith, why has the offense under Kaepernick’s lead produced similarly to that under Smith’s?

    Yes, more double-standards.

    and yes,I find it hilarious when people try to sound smart and only come off sounding stupid, I didnt single you out, but you took it personally, and proved my point yet once again. my saying it seems to me is an opinion,not a stated fact, coach has only seen kap during practice and just only practicing with the first string and getting first string reps, kap’s only played sparringly, so it would seem logical that coach saw something in practice that has lead him to keep kap as the starter. there is no contradiction there, just your obvious dislike for me. hahaha

    Why fix what aint’ broke? 13 and 3 last year. Lost to NY because we were running 4 and 5th string wideouts in the championship game. 6 and 2 this year and one of the losses I think we would all agree lies at the feet of just really bizarre play calling. He’s earned his chance to finish this. If he starts stinking it up, then by all means replace him. Or even if he isn’t the problem, and the team starts losing… throw Kap in to see if that changes the dynamic. But for him to lose his role now, playing as good as he’s playing, winning games, breaking records, setting high in the league in QBR, doesn’t make any kind of sense to me. Kap may be good… he may even be the QB for the niners future, but Alex should get to finish what he started.

    And if any of you Alex haters continue to point to the rams game as something that Kap had to salvage from Alex, you aren’t being honest with yourself. Our defense didn’t start playing in that game until the second half. Smith came out and threw 7 for 8 with a TD and blurred vision before leaving the game very early because of his concussion. Prior to that he racked up the highest completion percentage in NFL history. I’ll admit to old fashioned loyalty if you can all admit to proven results. You guys keep saying the same things… sub-par QB, can’t stretch the field, etc. etc. And he just keeps piling up the wins and the records.

    I asked earlier in this season if Alex would finish this season, it just seemed odd that Kap was getting so many plays! IMHO we win with either QB, if you look at the numbers Kap and Alex have pretty much the same Stats. Myself I’d like to see Alex get his job back he’s done nothing to lose it, but if its not gonna happen? then coach should do the right thing and name the starter, Alex deservers at least that!

    Just some advice, more is not better. Keep it short and have a point. It makes it much more interesting for others.

    Phatal, i hear you but in my opinion, alex does not possess the upside that Kap brings to the offense. Thats the reason for the change. In 2 1/2 games, hes already shown he can give us what alex can. The key is how much more he’ll bring by the playoffs.

    Coach see’s that Alex can’t spread the field thus time for change. Kaep does spread the field. The scary thing for the rest of the league is, kaep will only get better.

    coach has seen kap. improve all year he just was waiting for a reason like alex playing bad or getting hurt.. now he has to use kap. and as we all can see this is what coach saw on his college tape and last year and this year in practice he is ready..coach moved up in the draft to pick him..he didn’t get him in the later rounds…it’s just like bledsoe and brady what they went thru in new england people liked bledsoe he would win games but just didn’t have the umph to get them to the promise land..he got hurt and we all know the rest..it was time for a change..he played good never missed games just like alex but there is something missing with alex,lets face it kap is a natural he has it all.. just needs to play more.alex would have got sacked 5 times sunday, kap. got free one time gaining 2 yards would have been a 8 yard loss..let kap play and the vets should rally around him cuz they will WIN!.

    to me when kap is dropping back i don’t have this pins and needle thing going on..i feel confident he will make a play..third down conv. r one of the biggest thing in football…alex struggles..he will take a sack or on third and 8 do a check down for 4 yards and a punt..that’s what he gives u time and time again..kap will try and make a play…yes i know it doesn’t always work but sunday he looked pretty good on that 9 min. drive making third down conf.’s and keeping the drive alive…he looks relaxed and ready to go..love him smiling having fun…that’s part of winning..he’s a breath of fresh air!’

    Maybe Alex would have been sacked a few times but he almost certainly wouldn’t have thrown that pick and the other ball that was very nearly picked. If we don’t come up with those 2 pick 6′s the game looks completely different. I’ve got nothing against Kap. I hope the kid eventually becomes the next aaron rodgers of the league, but everyone is talking about him as if he just blew those games out of the water. 16/25 for 231 yrds 1 TD and 1 INT. Take away the INT and it looks like a so so game for Alex. But since it was Kap, the way people are talking about it is as if he threw for 450 yards for 8 TD’s. People just see what they want. They have hated Smith for so long, they don’t know how to not hate him.

    alex smith has played very well up to this point. coach has seen something in kap that made him want to make a change. either way,we,as fans,will continue to agree or disagree with it. the one for sure thing I know is that winning a super bowl will for sure bring an end to every single we fans dont agree on wether its smith or CK7 leading the way.

    Lets not forget the last time we played the Saints, Alex went blow for blow with Bree’s, and oh yeah he ran for a TD as well!
    And Alex won with out the defense’s 2 pick 6′s! And at the time the Saints were one of the hottest teams in the NFL, the score changed 4 time in the last 4 minutes of the game? Isn’t that why coach called Alex clutch? I really believe what this is coming down to is style points, and somehow it just doesn’t seem right! But as a Faithful I remain Loyalty to my 9ers!

    Hunter and Williams both lost for the season, I just have to wonder if 2 players on the same team have ever been lost for the season on the same play! Also I really do believe that Saints ‘Vilma’ plays dirty, I’ve seen him do this before, He like to roll up the down players legs, think he that to Favre?
