Morning Tailgate: Feb. 7

Posted by Alex Espinoza on February 7, 2013 – 10:54 AM

Football has become a year-round sport, but the offseason is in full swing now that the Super Bowl is over. Soon enough, we will be knee-deep NFL Scouting Combine analysis and Draft day predictions.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com broke down the upcoming free agency picture for the 49ers and wrote that safety Dashon Goldson should be the team’s top priority in the offseason.

“This is the third consecutive time two-time Pro Bowl safety Dashon Goldson has played his final game without a contract for the upcoming season,” Maiocco wrote. “There is little question that he is the 49ers’ top priority to re-sign, but at what cost? The 49ers and Goldson (and his agents) have not reached terms on a long-term contract the past two offseasons.”

The rest of today’s Morning Tailgate looks ahead to potential offseason moves and more.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee examined possible 49ers transactions that could take place before the 2013 season.

Don Banks of Sports Illustrated looked ahead to the 49ers offseason.

Ron Kroichick of the San Francisco Chronicle previewed Jim Harbaugh’s Pro-Am weekend at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports gave six observations to watch for heading into 2013.

Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN.com pegged the 49ers to draft Georgia DL John Jenkins.

Mike Sando of ESPN.com looked at the playing time for 49ers defensive linemen.

49ers.com’s coverage included Jed York’s thank you letter, a look at the 49ers-Giants Charity Shoot-Out (Gallery / Story) and the inactive players who warmed up for the Super Bowl.

    well, its been a couple of days of recovey, but not completely healed yet, but i’m getting there, got to face reality as i always post in here, and i’m sure some of us here feels the same thing, just thinking about the future right now, since r coaching staff still intact and r roster is young, we have a bright future ahead of us…i would say its not r time yet to win the superbowl, but i know in my heart that someday we will prevail,,STILL LUV THE 49ERS NO MATTER WHAT……

    Looking forward to many more WINNING seasons with the core of this 49ERS TEAM. The way the TEAM came back from being 22 points down and ALMOST winning it makes me even more proud of this TEAM. Makes it a littel easier to take this loss. Like you said bow53, This 49ERS TEAM are a young group that in my opinion can only get better. It will be interesting to see who the Coaching staff brings in to help push this 49ERS TEAM too another Superbowl. Their potential is VERY high. Who knows. After next season , There could be a Quest for # 7 ;-) ……………Til next season, GO 49ERS GO…..

    I wonder if years down the road, penitent 49ers fans will ponder if Smith would have been able to help the 49ers secure an eleventh Super Bowl title before Kaepernick was no longer around to help them win a seventh.

    The Quest for Six continues, and the road has only gotten rougher.

    As a genuine die hard 9ers fan since 89′, I’ve seen a lot of ups and some downs and by far this one is the toughest to grasp. I however see an amazing future with this organization. Still we are one of the youngest teams out there! This team will have the burden to go back to SB 48 now more than any other. Get our players healthy again, draft a shutdown corner and re-sign THE HAWK is a priority for us. Adding depth to the Dline would be nice too!
    I see us winning many big games for years to come under CK7. We will be major contenders for the next 10 years under this core group. LJames will be a stud and Manningham will bounce back. The quest for 6,7 and so on continues. Go niners of course! Californias official team!

    Phatalerror: Give it a rest douche. Smith may not have even gotten us to the big game for all we know. Just like it was not Alex’s fault we lost last year, its not Kaps fault this year either.

    “Phatalerror: Give it a rest douche. Smith may not have even gotten us to the big game for all we know. Just like it was not Alex’s fault we lost last year, its not Kaps fault this year either.”

    Well didn’t your tune change? Now instead of ‘Smith wasn’t good enough to win us a Super Bowl,’ it’s “Smith may not have even gotten us to the big game for all we know.” All of the bluster and insults and baseless innuendo, and all that is left of your argument is baseless hypothetical conjecture.

    Congratulations. Harbaugh followed your recipe for success. Except that the recipe wasn’t actually successful. All the talk about Colin’s poise, and what did the cameras show of him during the Super Bowl? All the talk about Colin’s putting the team on his back, and now fans are blaming the defense and the officiating (but at least not the kicker)? All the talk about Colin’s explosiveness, and the 49ers get a few big plays here and there, but none in the most important game of the year.

    Hate me for being a proponent of the truth, hate me for being right. Even if I am a 49ers fan. But I was indeed right. And the truth was, The stage was too big for Colin Kaepernick. And perhaps next year he’ll be good enough. But I wasn’t rooting for the 2013 49ers in the year of 2012.

    By the way, one of the articles above mentions how Randy Moss will likely want out of San Francisco. He was happy when Alex Smith was quarterbacking, but with Colin Kaepernick quarterbacking, his role was reduced to that of a decoy.

    Colin Kaepernick’s ‘Thrower’ Rating when targeting Moss: 53.5
    Alex Smith’s ‘Thrower’ Rating when targeting Moss: 117.7

    Yeah, if I were Randy Moss, I would have wanted a quarterback that could throw me the ball on the way to a Super Bowl Title rather than a quarterback that didn’t even look my way on most plays on the way to a franchise-first Super Bowl loss. But I’m not Randy Moss; Randy Moss is Randy Moss. And Randy Moss wants out of San Francisco. He wants to play where someone will make pro style reads and throw him the ball. There was a reason why his production went down when Kaepernick started taking snaps.

    Really? Citing an article from early December, 2012? That talked about how Moss had difficulty catching Kaepernick’s throws? Between that story that preceded week 15 and the Super Bowl, Kaepernick targeted Randy Moss 28 times, completing only 14 throws (50%), for 220 yards (7.9 yards per target) and 1 TD along with 3 interceptions. I can say with certainty that Randy Moss thinks more of Kaepernick’s fastball than he does his football.

    You talk on and on about Kaepernick’s measurables because that’s all he’s got that is worth talking about. He’s a glorified runningback. And the 49ers didn’t make it out of his tenth start without opposing defensive coordinators catching on. This is the way it always ends with mobile quarterbacks that don’t read progressions from inside the pocket. Thank you for playing.

    What does it matter that the defense couldn’t get off the field? During the first half, Kaepernick got six possessions to Flacco’s five. Flacco’s offense: 21 points. Kaepernick’s offense: 6 points. It’s not like Kaepernick kept getting the ball inside the 49ers’ 5 yard line. He just didn’t do anything meaningful with their possessions. That’s why the 49ers had no momentum. That’s why the 49ers ended up down by 22.

    Once the Ravens had that cushion, they began playing conservative, and Colin got to throw underneath routes for easy yardage and completions. Everything you need in order to measure Colin’s performance in the game can be obtained from his first half stats.

    You keep trying to make me out as expecting an A+ game from Kaepernick every week. I don’t expect that from Kaepernick any more than I expected it from Smith. I also don’t excuse a C- performance from a quarterback on a drop, an illegal procedure, and an inconsistent defense. The defense only allowed 34 points. Kaepernick’s offense was good enough to score 35 or at least keep the other offense off the field. Kaepernick wasn’t.

    My argument has been and continues to be that everyone is measuring Kaepernick by his personal stat line and how well one receiver is doing now while ignoring that the whole team’s performance is down overall. Kaepernick doesn’t make the team better. Therefore, he was the wrong choice at quarterback.

    It’ll be exciting to play Madden 14 with Kaepernick next year though: I can have his cannon arm and footspeed and do the reading of the defenses for him. Or maybe they’ll make the next Madden more accurate, and on every throwing play, regardless of the routes every player runs, from inside the pocket you can only throw the ball to the primary receiver. In that case Madden would be infinitely more realistic.

    For reference, during the 49ers Conference Championship game in 2011, Smith completed throws to Vernon Davis, Delanie Walker, Frank Gore, and Michael Crabtree. He also completed a throw to Kyle Williams for a first down, although the 49ers opted for the 5 yard penalty from Aaron Ross’ illegal use of hands. Alex Smith never targeted the third wideout, Brett Swain (who wasn’t on any 53-man NFL roster this year). In the preceding game against the Saints, Smith completed throws to eight different targets.

    With superior talent at wideout and a better offensive line in 2012, Kaepernick managed completions to 7 different targets against Green Bay’s persistently off-balance defense. A week later against the Falcons, that number was down to 5. In the Super Bowl, Kaepernick completed throws to only four different players. Kaepernick doesn’t read well-coached defenses well enough to throw to multiple receivers and open up lanes for his favorite receiver, Crabtree. The Ravens bet on Crabtree on that final 49ers drive and prevented a score. A veteran quarterback wouldn’t have let the game get to that point.

    It’s OK if you don’t understand why diversifying targets is important in the NFL, because it’s football at an X’s and O’s level, rather than football at a ‘My quarterback has a SPD of 94 and THP of 98 compared with SPD of 76 and THP of 89, and therefore the first is better’ level. Mike Singletary didn’t get X’s and O’s, and that’s why his players weren’t “Winners” before he was kicked off the team. You are at least as smart as Mike Singletary if you can grasp that Kaepernick’s measurables are better than Smith’s. Smith’s football IQ on the other hand wasn’t something Mike Singletary was qualified to utilize, and on the other hand, Kaepernick’s “savant-like” football IQ never showed itself in the Super Bowl. Maybe next year.

The game is over regardless and you still b!tching for a QB who has had 8 years to prove himself. You can come up with every excuse in the book but the fact is Alex has been a disappointment for being a #1 overall draft pick until Harbaugh taught him how to be a good QB. That same teacher who knows QB’ing better than you (I KNOW ITS HARD FOR YOUR EGO TO ACCEPT), see’s these guys everyday and knows who gives us the best chance made the correct choice. Just because we fell one play away from winning the SB does not make his choice incorrect and nothing you saying proves it was the wrong choice so what is the F’in point of all this?

    Smith didn’t throw an interception in last year’s Conference Championship. Smith threw for 2 touchdowns. Smith did so with an injured Crabtree and a winded Kyle Williams and Brett Swain. Smith did so even though his offensive line was far from its 2012 Pro Bowl form. Smith put up the first score of the game. Smith played well against a team that was strongest at the point of attack where the 49ers were weakest.

    Kaepernick had so much more to work with on offense in 2012, and his offense didn’t put a touchdown on the board until the opponent had already put up 4 touchdowns. Kaepernick blew one opportunity after another. John Harbaugh’s team neutered Kaepernick through the first two and a half quarters of football.

    There was blame to go around, but the point was never that Kaepernick single-handedly lost the game. He simply didn’t do what was necessary to win a winnable game. He didn’t play up to expectations. All this, while Smith watched from the bench.

    BlahBlah The 49ers finished with a 468-367 advantage in total net yards over the Ravens. The QB & offense was not why we lost the game. The QB was the reason we had a chance to win the game. You a biased idiot BLAHBLAH if you see it any other way. WE NEED TO IMPROVE OUR SPECIAL TEAMS AND WE NEED TO QUIT GIVING UP THE LONG BALL WHICH BEGAN TO BE A PROBLEM DURING THE PATRIOTS GAME. Ironically our biggest strengths last year started becoming a weakness for us-kicking and defense. You think about how well the Ravens threw the ball on us in the 1st half and that kickoff return for a TD. You start off a game in a hole like that like we did in Atlanda and keep expecting to comeback from that. KAP threw for over 300 yards, Gore 100, Crabtree and Davis over 100 yards and we lost and you blaming KAP????? Get Real….learn football and look at the entire picture instead of just focusing on trying to convince us its all KAPs fault.

    You act like Smith is Joe Montana. I liked Smith but he plays too high percentage and never showed enough guts to squeeze a ball where it was needed. Yeah he threw few interceptions but he threw few TDs too. We have needed a QB who is not afraid, who is fearless and is confident in his ability. Habaugh had to slap Smith on the shoulders to give him confidence before each game. Open your eyes dip$hit and your biases will go away.

    Smith will always play it safe and you don’t win playing safe, you win by taking chances in football and in life. I don’t want a QB that plays not to lose. I want a QB who plays to win.

    PHATABLAHBLAH…you the type of guy who wanted us to lose because you want to take that loss and use it as a tool to convince us that KAP was a mistake. That loss does not prove that. There are many reason why we lost that game. We lost games against the Vikings and Giants pretty badly with Alex at the wheel so don’t act like Alex was tearing it up. He played high percentage and we needed more because we coul dnot depend on Akers or the Defense like last year. As a footbal coach we needed more points offensively and guess what: WE GOT IT DUMB@SS!

    ITS SIMPLE FOOTABLL IS ABOUT SCORING MORE POINTS THAN THE OTHER TEAM.

    “ITS SIMPLE FOOTABLL IS ABOUT SCORING MORE POINTS THAN THE OTHER TEAM.”

    Joe Flacco’s offense, 5 drives, 21 points.
    Colin Kaepernick’s offense, 6 drives, 6 points.

    This is a short post for short-attention span people. What is so hard to comprehend about this. If it’s about scoring, and it’s about why Kaepernick was the right choice for the 49ers, why didn’t his offense put up points?

    “We lost games against the Vikings and Giants pretty badly with Alex at the wheel so don’t act like Alex was tearing it up.”

    Two losses out of eight, both where the offensive line and special teams played horribly, and in the case of the Vikings, where the defense also played horribly. And yet Alex Smith doesn’t get the grace that you grant to Colin Kaepernick for his tie and loss against the Rams (in the loss, the special teams and defense were great), his loss against the Seahawks, and abysmal first half against the Ravens in the Super Bowl.

    It’s the double-standard that I have always found distasteful: Colin’s many mistakes are forgiven because he’s young, while Alex’s few mistakes are amplified in the eyes of fans who didn’t understand why Smith could never succeed under Mike Nolan’s or Mike Singletary’s quarterback-killing systems.

    LB Brooks jumps offsides which gives Ravens more life to go for a TD instead of a FG.

    Crabtree drops a sure TD in the endzone instead we must settle for a FG in the 1st quarter.

    BUT idiots like BLAHBLAH who know nothing about football choose to ignore ALL this but chooses to see when Alex is the QB? You can’t have it both ways douchebag!

    I blame neither QB for both loses and fully realize the “TEAM” came up short both years. I defended Alex last year and defend Kap this year! Either your biasness is overwhelming you with hate and blame to one person or you are clueless to FOOTBALL! LEARN FOOTBALL BLAHBLAH!

    PHATABLAHBLAH say “It’s the double-standard that I have always found distasteful”

    You the dipsh!t with the double standard!!!!!!!!

    Thats what YOU ARE DOING by ignoring other factors in the SB that caused us to lose! I never blamed Alex last year and my history of blogs prove that dumb@ss. Just ask 11 years with Alex when he attacked Alex last year! You have no idea what you talking about. My point is it was not the QB’s fault this year and last year! You saying it is the QB this year! YOU THE ONE WITH TEH DOUBLE STANDARD! UNBELIEVABLE that you try to use that on us! You need to be slapped like the lil b!tch you are!

    I always defended Alex because he was the best option we had but he is no Joe Montana. I didnt want Peyton and I did not want Matt Flynn like 11 years wanted. Lets make that clear. In all his years I felt he was not given the opportunity BUT I do see we have seen the ceiling with Smith and it is above average when you have a great offensive line, shutdown defense, solid kicking and a great special teams. I don’t want above average! I want greatness and KAP is great now and is only getting better. You want Alex, then you go with him to wherever he is traded. I am loyal to my 49ers! Not one guy. You want to be loyal to Smith then go root for him somewhere else and get off our blogs with your useless whining and nonsense!

    “I am loyal to my 49ers! Not one guy.”

    Then explain how you support a player who made Crabtree better and everyone else on offense less productive.

    THE 49ERS SCORED MORE POINTS. THATS WHAT THE #1 GOAL OF A QB IS!

    But your quarterback didn’t win. And he was your quarterback. Therefore you didn’t win.

    Wow. What a comment to say from a so called “SF49ER” fan. You are pathetic. Yes my team lost but I am not a loser in life. The team did not win. You a loser for just focusing on the QB. You said before that I did not play but now when its convenient you are now saying I am a loser. You bounce back and forth based on whats convenient for you with no logic or consistency.

    My point was as a person you are a loser who makes points based on emotional biasness. But we all know you already knew that-as always you reaching. You will always lose arguments when its foundation is based on emotional rants. You are also a loser in life to keep going on about something that you will never prove. Therefore you are a loser, because you lack logic.

    The team losing is not just on the QB like it was not just on the QB last year. Nothing has been proven one way or the other. All that has been proven is you are an emotionally biased loser PHATABLAHBLAH!

    BLAHBLAHBLAH-keep crying lil girl and keep spending all your time writing about something that is going nowhere and is completely meaningless. None of it matters nor can any of it be proven either way. Its all nonsense…how pathetic that you wasting your life writing these long blogs on something that means nothing.

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!

    HAAAAAAAAAAA!
