Morning Tailgate: Dec. 14

Posted by Alex Espinoza on December 14, 2012 – 11:29 AM

The 49ers will head to New England on Friday afternoon with heavy hearts following the unspeakable tragedy in Newtown, Conn.

Both teams feature two of the best football minds in the game in Jim Harbaugh and Bill Belichick. As Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group noted, both Harbaugh and Belichick have respect for each other.

“During Harbaugh’s 15-year playing career, he opposed a Belichick-led team only once,” Inman wrote. “Although Harbaugh’s Indianapolis Colts lost 21-14 at home to Belichick’s Cleveland Browns in 1994, Harbaugh passed for 194 yards — and ran for a career-high 63 yards.”

Ann Killion of the San Francisco Chronicle labeled the Patriots matchup as a measuring stick for the 49ers.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee previews the big contest between AFC and NFC heavyweights.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle examined the fast-paced New England offense.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com discussed the history between Aldon Smith and Patriots tackle Nate Solder.

Monte Poole of the Bay Area News Group wrote that Greg Roman has a big opportunity to shine on the primetime stage.

Inman shared the story of the wristbands being passed around by the defense.

Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.com noted the quality rushing attack of New England.

Tom E. Curran of CSNNewEngland.com shared comments from Tom Brady regarding fellow Michigan man Harbaugh.

Maiocco spoke to scout team receiver Chad Hall about mimicking Wes Welker in practice.

Barrows passed along comments from Greg Roman about learning the Pistol offense from Nevada coach Chris Ault.

49ers.com’s coverage included a look at Aldon Smith, his charitable efforts, another Throwback Thursday and Roman’s thoughts on the Patriots defense. Scott Kegley and Taylor Price broke down the matchup in the latest Cover 2 presented by AAA and we also brought you press passes from Roman, Vic Fangio and NaVorro Bowman.

    the weather forecast for the new england area and most of the northern east coast sunday night will be scattered showers in the daytine tapering off later in the evening, the bills home game against the seakawks should be a very rainy day and we will be rooting for the bills.,, kick-off for the 49ers might have an nfc west title and play-off berth hanging on it. ,,defense, keep everything in front of you,,NO DEEP $HIT,,lb’s,,pay attention to ALL the te’s of the pats’ coming across the middle and watch the screen game,,,brooks and aldon set the edge and dont allow the rb’s cut back.,,db’s jam the wr’s at the line and play physical, and lastly. D-LINE,,hit brady hard and hit him often,remember not to get anywhere near his head, he is the golden boy and the flags will fly if you even touch that dudes helmet. that is the key to victory,,,CK7 and ” Frank the tank ” will take care of the rest..

    “we are not supposed to win this game we are the under dog”
    The 49ers beat the Packers in Green Bay. That was the 49ers’ statement game. They were near the top of the NFL Power Polls, but two total-team let downs in week three and week six allowed doubt to settle in the minds of the NFL writers. Even so, the Patriots game was deemed to be an almost even competition, with oddsmakers giving the Patriots a three-point line over the 49ers. That has since climbed to 5.5. Why? The only thing that changed since then is that the quarterback that led the 49ers to a win against the Packers isn’t starting anymore.

    Why are the pro-Kaepernick crowd apologetic before the game even begins, with most of them insisting that the defense needs to step up? The 49ers’ defense hasn’t even had a sloppy game with Kaepernick under center, and they’ve given up only 59 points in the last 5 hours of game play. The defense has earned themselves a week off. Let Kaepernick prove he is quarterback of the future by carrying the team this week. Or are you Smith-haters not comfortable with that idea? No, of course you aren’t.

    Tarell Brown lucked out last week. Had Miami’s quarterback connected with either of the two bombs to the reciever he was a yard behind along the sideline, the games outcome would have been different. Tom Brady will not miss both of those, maybe one, but not two.I hope they don’t stay conservative like the games against the Giants and the Vikings.

    Hey guys, I’ve been behind Alex smith for years and I still am, but kaepernick is the qb right now. Let’s not naysay him, let’s just root for our 49ers to go in and execute and not let the pretty boy carve us up like he did to Houston. We have all the pieces to win this game and every game, now we just have to do it. Lock up the west and hopefully end up with a bye week and a home game. Man, I miss Super Bowls.

    the defense set up alex in all his games also….sorry but if u still can’t see what kap. brings u r blind and in denial…the thing kap hasn’t had that alex had was akers hitting every kick…so please move on with alex next year to his new team cuz kap is the niners qb now and for the future…with that said the niners need to play smart and play fast out of the gate…this is the team as an organiztion u want to measure up to…the pats r the niners of the 2000’s so this is great to see where they r at offense and defense and as a whole team…i think special teams will decide game…fg kicking maybe?

    “the thing kap hasn’t had that alex had was akers hitting every kick”
    Supposedly Kaepernick’s upside was that he was a weapon in the red zone. All of Akers’ misses when Kaepernick has been quarterback have been from outside the redzone (excluding the blocked attempt against the Saints). Akers was 14/19 kicking for Smith, with the average distance per attempt being 40.4 yards and the average miss for unblocked kicks being from 47.8 yards away. Akers was 9/13 kicking for Kaepernick, with the average distance per attempt being 35.3 yards and the average miss for unblocked kicks being from 47.3 yards away. Let’s not pretend that Akers’ failings have made Kaepernick look bad any worse than they made Smith look bad. If Kaepernick actually lived up to the hype that he was the 49ers’ answer in the red zone, you wouldn’t have to complain about the failings of the kicker.

    Akers’ misses haven’t resulted in any more losses for Kaepernick than they have for Smith, unless you subscribe to the flawed philosophy that the only field goal that matters is the one that ties or wins a game.

    If Kaepernick makes us a better team, Alex must have been playing pretty bad. Myself I don’t see the reason for the QB change, if you take it game by game it just doesn’t add up!

    u must be a bean counter…with the deimals…look akers hit alot of fg’s last year ALOT! ok give me a break with all this stat stuff…bottom line he hits the 41q yd. fg they win.. in the second game he drove them down to the 10 and walker dropped the ball ok….yes a 50 yd fg is tough but it’s makeable he missed…kap can make plays alex can’t period end of argument..that’s what the coachs see in practice and in games already…alex takes a sack kap makes 2 yrds from a 10 yard loss…u like alex and that is great…it’s been along 8 years with him even lasat year i felt harbaugh should have suited up cuz he held alex’s hand all year..he will not and i say it again WILL NOT HAVE TO DO THAT WITH KAP! u r looking for what? kap hasn’t done anything to warrent a change…PERIOD!

  19. By mfkram64 on Dec 15, 2012 | Reply

    as crazy as it may sound but YES! the fg to tie or win the game matters..no one remembers the fg he misses in the first qtr..it’s like a hitter who strikes out with guys on all game then he hits a home run to win it does anyone care about the four strikeouts? NO! it’s the walk off home run….what’s great about kap. is we have so much to see yet..alex is what u see is what u get…thta’s whats do great about kap……

  20. By mfkram64 on Dec 15, 2012 | Reply

    as far as red zone that’s not what it’s about for kap…it’s the plays he makes from anywhere…they the coach’s didn’t say o in the red zone kap will score…he brings big plays from all over it’s hard to defend….he is a talent and i’m so glad the niners have him…

  21. By gary potter on Dec 15, 2012 | Reply

    the niners win, if and only if the ol protects. ck7 must have time to throw if they play like they did against rams and miami. forget it. defense alone will not stop brady. we must be able to match him touchdown for touchdown. i believe it will come down to a fg if we protect ck7

  22. By phatalerror on Dec 15, 2012 | Reply

    “kap can make plays alex can’t period end of argument..”

    Then why doesn’t he start doing that? He’s played against nothing but dysfunctional, damaged, or rebuilding teams, and hasn’t done anything to recommend him over Alex Smith. This week, it will be different.

    Really, the Alex-haters need to stop with this constant shifting of tense. Here’s a grammar lesson for you:

    Alex Smith *is* better in the pocket than Colin Kaepernick.
    Colin Kaepernick *may become* a complete quarterback.
    Colin Kaepernick *can* run fast.
    Colin Kaepernick’s completion rate *is* inferior to Alex Smith’s.

    When Colin Kaepernick actually completes a start in a 49ers win where he made up for the defense’s or special teams’ lack, we can start using “is” in the same phrase as “Colin Kaepernick” and “better than Alex Smith.” And even then, it would still be a matter of debate. Right now, Colin’s “potential” vastly outweighs his production.

    And right now I rate the potential for Kaepernick to be benched for Smith this next week as higher than the potential that Kaepernick will reach the benchmarks the Alex-haters have set as the reason why Smith should remain benched.

    alex is better in the pocket…r u kidding me? alex looks more unsure back there then he looks sure…kap. is poised back there and only going to get better..production please what 50 yard td runs don’t count..or a 60 yard run against rams isn’t production…and i love the damaged.dysfunctional or rebuilding teams yea and alex beat the bills,arizona,lions,jets talk about a dysfunctional team please alex beat the packers only good team and u people who say kap. won the game cuz of d against the saints well if it wasn’t for bowman’s pick of rogers they might have not beat the packers..kap. came in against rams played good…bears at the time had the most take aways and the hottest d going at the time he shredded them..the saints at their house his second start and a team who at the time won 5of their last 6 one of the hottest teams beat them too! and this week the pats r undefeated at home in 5 years in dec. r 21-0 in second half of seasons…the mannings,big ben,farve,u name it hasn’t won in new england in dec. so if the niners win watch out….

    Kap bobbled four snaps and played a sub par game when it comes to completion percentage but still put up 41 pts on the road against an elite team. This is even after a missed FG and turnover in the red zone. The guy just makes plays. Im so happy Harbaugh made the switch.

    taylor price must have overslept, no new morning tailgate blog yet,,
    but, after last nights performance by CK7, there should not be anymore back and forth about who should be our qb for the rest of the season. CK7 showed us why coach harbaugh made the switch, albeit the kid still needs some polishing. but the defense stepped up, smothered brady and it wasnt untill we started playing zone type of coverages that he had succes. we almost cut our own neck off cuz you cant let brady get into a groove. and our defense was gasping for air towards the end of the game. BUT,,,,our guys on defense have the heart of a champion and they showed that to the whole last night. the 49ers are hands down the best team in the league right now and after we beat-down the seakawks next sunday night its off to the play-offs and a super bowl run,,,49ER DEFENSE #1 2012
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IN HARBAUGH WE TRUST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    hats off to crabs..he made the big catch’s..the first td with two defenders nice catch with a good throw threading the needle from kap..second td good catch and a great move an run…he brought his A game and stepped up with manningham out..how bout james kick return just what the niners needed production from the special teams..a rookie playing big in a big game nice job..and gore running hard all game making tough runs what a beast…going to new england and winning is hard but in dec. were they r undefeated last 5 years is awesome..had a couple of ugly plays but the conditions were terriable and in a hostile place they came through with a WIN!
