Morning Tailgate: Jan. 30

Posted by Alex Espinoza on January 30, 2013 – 5:35 AM

The 49ers enjoyed the light mood of media day on Tuesday as they were peppered with football and non-football questions by thousands of credentialed media members on the turf of the Superdome. There was a super hero, free tattoo sleeves for the players, 49ers Kaepernicking and more.

Peter Schrager of FOXSports.com offered his take on the best and worst of media day for Super Bowl XLVII.

“This is the new normal at Super Bowl Media Day, an NFL cultural and journalistic melting pot that puts Miss Alabama and Brent Musberger favorite Katherine Webb, in the same room as 84-year-old Hall of Fame journalist Edwin Pope,” Schrager wrote. “It’s no longer about the players’ answers; it’s about the folks asking the players the questions.”

The 49ers would also like to announce that Vernon Davis is holding a charity raffle to win an all expense paid trip to New Orleans for the Super Bowl. The deadline for the drawing is on Thursday (tomorrow).

The rest of today’s Morning Tailgate features the top quotes and story lines from the hectic media day scene.

Rembert Browne of Grantland.com offered a photo blog of media day.

Dan Hanzus of NFL.com gave a rundown of the highlights of media day.

Vinnie Iyer of the Sporting News gave his take on the current state of media day.

Tim Kawakami of the Bay Area News Group shared insight on Jim Harbaugh’s hour-long media day session.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com passed along comments from Randy Moss.

Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group spoke to Ahmad Brooks about the Quest for Six.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle took a look at Harbaugh’s media day responses.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee discussed the relationship between Moss and Colin Kaepernick.

Mike Sando of ESPN.com took a look at Aldon Smith’s sack numbers.
Ray Ratto of CSNBayArea.com analyzed Moss’ place in NFL history.

Mark Purdy of the Bay Area News Group wrote that Kaepernick was candid with the media on Tuesday.

Maiocco examined Michael Crabtree’s development as a player.

Carl Steward of the Bay Area News Group discussed Smith.

Maiocco spoke to Mario Manningham about last year’s big Super Bowl catch.

Vic Tafur and Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle offered a notebook of memorable quotes.

    Goodmorning to the whole team. Today is my 49th birthday and i was really hopping to win the superbowl package so since i can not afford to be there iin person i will be there in my heart. Best of luck to all. My wish is that on my 49th b-day that my 49ers win the superbowl-(harbowl).I may not live in Sanfransico but my whole life i grew up being a 49ers fan with the hope that someday i will be able to be at one of your games, If not the superbowl this year maybe a candlestick park game before you all move to your new home.Give it all you have and do your best then i really believe that we will be 6-0 in superbowls

    ummm we played the ravens last year and they trommped alex and laughed …..same defense ….but this year with the kaeper ….we can score points and he refuses to throw checkdowns unless absolutely has to and goes for the 1st down and gets most of em ….the ravens are ready for our defense …they are not ready for our offense …….but the ravens harbaugh is a defensive coach and he will be looking at the rams film over and over and that does bode a little funny so offense needs to bring some new looks and the run game has to step up and drive em all over the place

You will not see that on THIS Sunday ! You think so 11 years ? you think they are ready for our defense ? Ha ! think again, i think our team understands what’s at stake, and there will be no jacoby jones or whatever his name and our coordinators will expose the ravens’ weaknesses . . . in Harbaugh, Jim Harbaugh, we trust this Sunday !

    “….we can score points and [Colin Kaepernick] refuses to throw checkdowns unless absolutely has to and goes for the 1st down and gets most of em ….”

    Granted, this was just 7-11 babbling, but people have cooled down on the garbage talk, and I haven’t been able to call out anyone for falsifying the truth for a few days:

    Colin Kaepernick during the regular season: 234 throw attempts (including sacks), 63 rushes, 103 first downs (34.7% conversion rate)
    Colin Kaepernick on 3rd down during the regular season: 66 throw attempts (including sacks), 16 rushes, 29 first downs (35.4% conversion rate)

    Since when is 35% the equivalent of the English word, “Most”?

    Here’s Alex Smith’s numbers for reference. What a difference late-season cohesiveness makes for an offensive line.

    Alex Smith during the regular season: 242 throw attempts (including sacks), 31 rushes, 95 first downs (34.8% conversion rate)
    Alex Smith on 3rd down during the regular season: 65 throw attempts (including sacks), 7 rush attempts, 23 first downs (31.9% conversion rate)

    “Kaepernick…9-2, soon to be 10-2 with a SB win!!!!!!”

    You’d think the team had Joe Montana seeing stuff like this on these boards endlessly. It’s one thing to be confident about your team. It’s another to talk about the game as if it’s already been won. Add to that that Kaepernick didn’t exactly earn all of those wins, and single-handedly lost others.

    Wait for the 49ers to win the Super Bowl. Then you can gush about Colin Kaepernick.

  42. By temper11 on Jan 31, 2013 | Reply

    “Add to that that Kaepernick didn’t exactly earn all of those wins, and single-handedly lost others.” Phatal… in my opinion, you win as a team and lose as a team. I disagree with your statement that Kap “single-handedly” lost others. That’s the same BS that people lay at Alex’s feet.

  43. By phatalerror on Jan 31, 2013 | Reply

    temper11: My mistake was using the plural of ‘other’.

    Kaepernick owns the Rams loss like I’ve seen few players own a loss. It was a poor game for him against a defense that was the only one besides Seattle’s that exposed him when largely restricted to throwing from the pocket (he broke off some scrambles, but did no real damage with them). He then gave up 2 points on an admittedly poorly-called Intentional Grounding penalty from the endzone (although he certainly didn’t need to roll back 20 yards on the play), and then he gave up the defensive touchdown on a panic pitch above Ted Ginn Jr.’s head. The 49ers defense can’t be blamed, giving up only a two-point conversion and a total of 2 field goals with the first coming after regulation time expired.

    Kaepernick played poorly in the Seahawks game as well, but that was a complete meltdown by the entire team, and I have always acknowledged that (while arguing that Alex Smith had the veteran experience needed to weather a contest like that more respectably). You can ‘what if’ and ‘woulda shoulda’ a few moments of the loss to the Rams (including blaming David Akers), but when you personally give up 8 points before the rest of the team does, you’re executing at a level beneath the NCAA standard.

    Fortunately, Kaepernick hasn’t made such a poor showing since then. The hope is that he can deal with whatever the Ravens throw at him.

    I agree that was a rough game from him… but honestly, I would have expected far more of that from a 1st time QB. I’ve been surprised at the poise he’s shown since he took over. Granted, he was handed a superbowl caliber team to start his NFL career with, but nonetheless, he’s been very impressive – Rams game notwithstanding. One game more to secure our 6th. And then I’ll be interested to see what Alex does. Go Niners!

    “I agree that was a rough game from him… but honestly, I would have expected far more of that from a 1st time QB. I’ve been surprised at the poise he’s shown since he took over.”

    I will accept that completely. He’s made mistakes here and there, but he’s done far better than the typical quarterback with only single-digit starts.

    Instead of qualifying that statement at the risk of inciting the wrath of the Kaepologists, I will stop there.

    You need not qualify your statement to incite the wrath of many on this blog. Simply posting “Hi” is enough to incite that wrath.

    Like I said before, anyone that says the Quarterback won or lost a game “singlehandedly” is one of the most moronic statements one can make. It only makes you look like you know nothing about football. You are showing just how stupid you really are. Hoping and talking about a win is not getting ahead of myself!! Although…guess Alex lost enough of them himself and Akers won a whole heck of a lot games for him.

    If you want people to keep throwing dirt on Alex keep it up you moron!!

    Kaep has done what they have asked of him in EVERY game so far. He has not won singlehandedly nor lost singlehandedly, although you could make a point he won the GB game!! I have not seen him have a “BAD” game yet!! I have seen the team have a couple of bad games. You have to give that first Rams lose to Alex since Kaep would have had to come from behind!!

    “I have not seen him have a “BAD” game yet!! I have seen the team have a couple of bad games.”

    Go back and watch a tape of the second game against the Rams this year, because you obviously missed it. Colin’s mistakes lost that game, and it’s not as if he did an incredible amount of good in that game.

    But the game is recorded history, and almost universally seen as Kaepernick’s low point. It serves no one well for you to pretend it never happened.

  51. By temper11 on Jan 31, 2013 | Reply

    Hermie, I agree with you that you can’t lay a win or a loss soley on the shoulders of any one player. It’s a team sport for a reason. However, I have to disagree with you that the rams game that Alex went out would have clearly been a loss had he not been injured. If I remember right, and I’m sure many on here will correct me strenuously if I’m wrong, Smith went out really early in that game. I think in the 2nd or 3rd offensive possession. Of those 2 or 3 possessions, he led the team down the field for a TD on the last one. The Rams came out and punched us in the nose, we were adjusting, and had adjusted to their D on Alex’s last drive. To say we clearly would have lost is no different than me saying we would have won the Seahawks game if Alex had been in there. No one can know what would have happened had the players been switched. Impossible to even try to speculate with any kind of authority.

The Rams came out and punched us in the nose, we were adjusting, and had adjusted to their D on Alex’s last drive.”

    And that last part is the most important. The 49ers were down by 7 points when the offense took the field without Alex Smith, and it had nothing to do with Smith’s play. Only in the Week 16 Seahawks game did the 49ers’ defense look as bad as they did in that first quarter of the Rams game. The 49ers had shored up the defense and established the offense just as Smith was knocked out after the 49ers’ third offensive drive. As for Kaepernick, what did he do but a lot of nothing until the end of the third quarter?

    To be fair, you don’t expect from a backup what you expect from a starter when the backup has been getting a backup’s reps in practice. With that said, the 49ers got a late-game gift from the special teams unit, and that was what allowed the 49ers to catch up to the Rams. So you can’t say that it was because of Kaepernick that the 49ers even managed to get a tie out of that game. The defense held the Rams to 10 points over the last four quarters of the game, and that would have been all Smith needed to win that game. The going line all along has been ‘Alex didn’t win games when the 49ers were behind’, but that hasn’t been the case ever since the 49ers finally disposed of Harbaugh’s predecessors. It’s just one more thing people repeat because everyone equally uninformed said it before them.

    I was being sarcastic for the most part…I actually consider that game a win because we clinched second seed by half a game…if we would have lost second seed by half a game, I would have considered that to have been a loss.

  54. By phatalerror on Jan 31, 2013 | Reply

    It’s more correct to consider the game a loss. The 49ers already had the tie-breaker between them and the Packers. It took a Packers loss in week 17 for the 49ers to get the bye.

    Phatalerror sounds like he wants us to lose so he can say Alex was the right choice & he was right all along. You such a loser dude. Get over yourself…do you really think you know QB’ing or whats best for the team better than Harbaugh? Your whining and hating is really tired. Go root for another team who cares about what you have to say…think about where you motives lie. Not for the team to win but for you to be right on some faceless blogs. You a true loser in every aspect. Whether Alex starts or Kap starts our #1 goal is for the 49ers to be Champions, not for us to say “I TOLD YOU SO”. Thats not a loyal faithful fan. Thats a insecure douchbag.

    I don’t care if they alternate QB’s each quarter! I just want us to win the game and be Champions! WE WANT OUR 6th TROPHY!

    There are people on this blog who want to be right more than they want us to win. Seriously…listen to their words and ask yourself what kind of person is motivated more by the incredible desire to be right on a faceless blog more than to have the team win. Think about how pathetic their life must be. It really tells you a lot about that person-really….you don’t have to be a psychologist to see that if you look closely.

    Personally: I would rather be wrong and win it all.

    Wasn’t this the reason for benching Alex, that Kaepernick gave us the better chance of winning the Super Bowl? Well nows the time for Kaepernick to stand tall and lead this team, this team is loaded with all the talent thats needed to win this game. What we need right now is a leader, a player to take this team on his shoulders, to make that one play that WAKES this team up. We have the talent to do this ,, what we need is that leader!
    Is Kaepernick that player ……… ?
