Morning Tailgate: Feb. 13

Posted by Taylor Price on February 13, 2013 – 10:10 AM

Michael Crabtree is not your average Joe at wide receiver. He makes ridiculous catches look easy. He breaks numerous tackles after making the tough catches, too. He blocks for teammates. He competes. He really does it all.

Crabtree turned in career highs in catches (85), receiving yards (1,105) and touchdowns (9) in his fourth season with the San Francisco 49ers. He also turned in best performances in the closing stages of 2012. Crabtree finished the final eight games of the year with five, 100-yard receiving games and seven touchdowns during that stretch.

In three playoff games, Crabtree caught 20 passes for 285 yards and three touchdowns.

Because of his standout season, Crabtree was included in USA Today’s “All-Joe” team for 2012, a collection of the best NFL players that haven’t been named to a Pro Bowl. Crabtree was joined by teammates Alex Smith and Anthony Davis on the team that fields a 53-man roster with representation from every team.

Nate Davis of USA Today explained that Crabtree and Davis are likely soon to earn Pro Bowl recognition based on breakout seasons in 2012.

Crabtree also showed a lot of toughness, willingly going over the middle, as he turned potential into production,” Davis wrote.

ESPN.com’s NFL Nation Blog rounds up the top NFL free agency headlines for 2013.

Brian McIntyre of Yahoo! Sports discussed the top quarterback talent headed to the NFL Scouting Combine and the groups willingness to compete in all drills.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee shared the unique story of San Jose State tight end Ryan Otten, who played at the Senior Bowl while dealing with a serious illness.

    We need quality receivers because we do not know injury status on Kyle Williams, Mario Manningham, Is Randy Moss going to be back. ets. Vernon Davis is wonderful but is not a wide receiver. That’s a thought turn him in to a sturdy wide receiver.

    “it doesn’t matter what u post he just picks a line and quotes it and twist it into somehthing to favor alex and but kap. down…”

    Stop posting stuff that’s untrue, and I won’t try to prove you wrong. Like this statement:

    “Kaepernick IS the MAN….”

    But was he?

    Of NFL quarterbacks who threw at least 16 times from inside the red zone, Alex Smith ranked first in the league with 47.1% of targets going for touchdowns. Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, and Drew Brees ranked next down at the 35% mark. Where did Colin Kaepernick rank? “Fifth?” No. “Tenth?” Not even close. “Twentieth for sure!” Nope. Thirtieth in the league. At 17.4%, he was better than the following quarterbacks: Ryan Tannehill, Jake Locker, Matt C. (Kansas City Chiefs), Cam Newton, Nick Foles, Brandon Weeden, Brady Quinn, and John Skelton.

    When you add sacks to targets, Smith still converted 42.1% of dropbacks for touchdowns, and Kaepernick still ranked 30th.

    There were things that Smith did better than anyone else in the league in 2012, and yet people continued to subscribe to outdated stereotypes like ‘he couldn’t move the offense in the red zone’. Meanwhile, Kaepernick put up career backup stats in the red zone and was praised as if he was really a weapon there.

    Wake up, people. You’re happy to send an excellent quarterback packing in favor of a quarterback with physical ability but without the skill needed to play the position. You’re mortgaging the future for the value of a mid-round draft pick on the prospect that the kid is going to figure this out.

    So Blahblah is still whining! He says “Wake up, people. You’re happy to send an excellent quarterback packing in favor of a quarterback with physical ability but without the skill needed to play the position”.
    So he does realize that the head coach is actually making the decisions. We simply agreeing. Its hilarious that he will say the most rediculous things to try to win a point when he has obviously crashed & burnt.
    So we are to believe that our head coach needs to wake up and that all the preplanning and reviewing game film before he selected KAP as a high second round pick as our QB of the future with his 15 years of NFL experience and has been inducted in the ring of honors in Lucas Stadium & developed many QB’s to be even better (including Alex) is getting bamboozled by a kid “without the skill needed to play the position”.
    And Harbaugh is clueless to this but someone on blog named Phatablahblah is the QB guru who we need to listen to over our sleeping coach who needs to wake up.
    And yes there is an Easter Bunny.

    Its hilarious with all the stats he tries to pull out of his @ss. So by his “stat logic” above he is saying he would take Alex Smith over Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees. Think about how many NFL teams, coaches, GMs and experts would use this “stat logic” and say if I had any QB in the league, I would choose Alex over all QB’s in the NFL based on this stat.

    And yes there is a tooth fairy.

    MORE RED ZONE STATS TO PONDER
    In 2011, The JETS ranked No. 1 in red-zone scoring efficiency and were second in the league in touchdowns per red zone attempt, scoring in 65.3 percent of their trips to the red zone.
    Mark Sanchez posted a 89.1 QB rating from the 19-yard line in, the highest number of any portion of the field. He threw an astounding 21 touchdowns to a mere three interceptions. Sanchez’s second-highest QB rating was 81.1, which came from the 10-yard-line in.
    Yeah Jim we can actually be better if we follow BLAHBLAHs logic. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    Just came across this quote…Roman says he’s found out “quite a bit, and I’m still learning” about Kaepernick. Can you imagine some of the packages they are going to come up with knowing what they have going into the season!!

    I think one of Kaeps greatest attributes is his pocket awareness…something Alex never had. A full off season and training camp working with the first team…no reason we should not be back to the dance next year…even knowing how tough it is to get there!!

    I am loving your stats too dave g…but your aren’t playing fair now!! :-)

  28. By phatalerror on Feb 13, 2013 | Reply

    Do you need pocket awareness when your offensive line has finally progressed to awesome and you get three seconds to stare down your primary receiver before throwing or taking off and running? Not like you need it when Chilo Rachal is your right guard and A-gap blitzes get to you in a second and a half.

    Really, you haven’t compared apples to apples, and that is why your argument is so weak. In the end, when you have nothing else, you will stand on, ‘Harbaugh must be right because he is the coach.’ That despite the fact that you criticized him for his management of the final drive of the Super Bowl. Selective memory, no?

  29. By phatalerror on Feb 13, 2013 | Reply

    Wow… really, you tried to pull out [Thrower] Rating numbers in potentially goal line settings where the closer the quarterback is to the goal line, the more penalized they are for attempting the throw in the first place. Therefore offenses that leaned on their runningbacks close to the goal line and completed touchdown throws only when throwing from outside the 10 tended to have the highest Red Zone [Thrower] Ratings. Quarterbacks like Mark Sanchez and Christian Ponder threw a disproportionate number of their red zone attempts from snaps taken outside the 5. Such was also the case for Alex Smith in 2011, but in 2011, the 49ers’ run blocking was far superior to their protection blocking (see Ravens game).

    Bad knowledge. You should know better. On second thought, no you wouldn’t.

    hey blahblahblah alex was best % of this and that but u forget one thing he didn’t get the niners to a super bowl EVER!u r makeing this out to be like kaepernick is replacing montana or young…..alex smith never got to the playoffs till last year u r making out like kaepernick is repalcing a future hall of fame qb…what kaepernick did in just 10 games is awesome and the niners r going to be way better with him then alex smith PERIOD!

    all i can say is look back at the giants game this year…when they got down it was over…alex was lost…i as a fan had no confidence he would lead the niners back…but when kaepernick is behind center i have this feeling inside like i had when montana was there…he will get us back in the game…that’s that ” special something” u don’t have stats for buddy…champ. game down by 17 came back and won…super bowl down by 22 no team ever came back more than 10pts… ever..got down to 7 for win…i could just feel it after thy scored to make it 28-13 he would give us a chance to win..and he did PERIOD!

    if alex smith is as great as u say..”sending an excellent qb packing” than he should have no problem getting his new team to the super bowl….it’s funny last year when he was free to go anywhere no team wanted him…NONE! i guess they didn’t see all your stats on how great he is! NOBODY WANTED HIM! i bet if the niners let kaepernick go he’d be on a team in 1 hour..just sayin.

    That “feeling” you are talking about has no basis. Alex’s win percentage this year was 75%. Colin’s win percentage this year was 70%. Your argument is that Kaepernick can make a comeback ‘like Montana’, but Montana didn’t play horrible ball for 30 minutes of every game and then suddenly hit his stride. Smith on the other hand took the load off the defense by sustaining drives.

    That’s OK. Your mind is fixed on the matter, and you’ll troll this site thumbing up each others’ posts while thumbing down mine regardless of the evidence. And you’ll do all of that based on a “feeling”, even though the “feeling” has no basis of fact.

    By the way, did you have a “feeling” Kaepernick was going to make a comeback after the second half of the Super Bowl started with a Ravens’ kick return? Or was that something you sensed when the blackout ended, the Ravens’ offense came out flat, and the 49ers’ misdirection offense caught the Ravens’ defense playing too tight? Come back when “comeback” means a win, not a loss.

He went so far as saying I bashed Alex last year when ALL I DID IS ARGUE WITH 11 YEARS THAT HE WAS OUR BEST OPTION. He is just like 11 years and that is he lets his emotion get the best of him and just categorizes all of us as KAP lovers who are blinded like Eleven called us Alex lovers and that we were blinded. They both make it personal and are not logical. Last year Alex was our best option. This year after seeing Kap there is ZERO doubt in my mind it Kap. I am not caught up in some hype. Its true…open your eyes. Saying that Harbaugh knows QBs is not an OUT…it is more logical than throwing out useless stats and emotions!

    And Blahblahblah acts like Joe Montana never had a streak of quarters or halfs of bad games to suddenly bring us back. Are you kidding? What do you think SuperBowl 23 was?
    How about January 8 1984. NFC Championship. 49ers vs Redskins. Redskins was up 21 – 0 in the 4th quarter. We start coming back but fell short 24-21!
    and the 49ers got the ball back one last time, but Montana was intercepted by Vernon Dean on the final play of the game, sealing Washington’s victory.
    How about about January 9 1988. 49ers vs Vikings. NFC Divisional Playoffs. We were down 20-3 at halftime and we lost 36-24 after Steve Yong replaced Joe to put points on the board!
    DO YOU WANT MORE EXAMPLES DUMB@SS? A true 49er fan remembers those tough losses.

    Joe was the greatest QB I have ever seen but only an idiot to football acts like they walked on water. He had his tough days. To expect perfection out of Kaepernick or any QB is rediculous.
    Joe Montana became the starter halfway through his 2nd season with the 49ers and it was not until his 3rd season that he was the full time starter (sound familiar?)

    Really? You’re comparing Kaepernick to Montana? Or you think I am? All I did was refute the garbage going around about Kaepernick being better than Smith.

    May he be better? Maybe. Only if he can grow mentally faster than defensive coordinators are catching up with him. Quite frankly, Joe Flacco schooled Kaepernick on how to run a first half offense in the Super Bowl.

    And saying you supported Alex Smith as ‘the best option’ and then switching that support to Kaepernick suggests that you really don’t know anything about the difference between a pocket quarterback, a mobile quarterback, and a mobile pocket quarterback. Kaepernick was a one-read quarterback, and the Ravens exploited that limitation. Smith didn’t have that limitation. Thus, when you take Smith as a complete package and are not dazzled by a gunslinger with a short 40 time and limited pocket ability and a bevy of football commentators gushing over him, Smith was the better quarterback.

    Clowned? Slapped? Really? Maybe I did check into the sandlot.

    Blahblah says “Kaepernick was a one-read quarterback, and the Ravens exploited that limitation”

    He was exploited by out throwing Flacco for the whole 4 quarters, not just 1,2 or 3 quarters but all 4. He threw for 300 yards and ran for 62 with 2 TDs and 1 int. If thats being exploited than I would say Manning has been exploited a sh!t load considering you dont get the rushing yards! HA!

    The difference of the game was a 108 yard kick return. Take that away and Kap wins the game but of course you would have said Sour Dough Sam bailed out Kap.

    49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick set a record with a 15-yard touchdown run, the longest touchdown by a quarterback in Super Bowl history.
    49ers tight end Vernon Davis tied a Super Bowl record for receiving yards in a game by a tight end with 104.
    The 49ers tied the Super Bowl record for most players with 100 or more receiving yards in a game (two, Davis and Michael Crabtree).

    Colin Kaepernick broke a couple more Super Bowl records:

    First 49ers’ interception in a Super Bowl.
    First 49ers’ loss in a Super Bowl.

    Yards are empty. Cross the freakin’ plane. That’s what matters.

    As a head coach, I don’t care if the opponent’s offense throws for 1,000 yards against my defense. Did they cross the plane? Did the defense hold them to fewer points than my offense scored?

    Flacco threw for 3 touchdowns and no interceptions. So, yes, absolutely: Kaepernick could learn from Flacco.

    Your posts are empty, and your stats even emptier.

    Thank you Phatablahblah…you made my point!

    You can pull all kinds of stats. Throw us more useless stats dipSh!t. So does Brady need to learn from Flacco because Flacco beat him and out-stat him.

    Empty Stats…wow is that possible? HAAAAAA! Thanks for making ALL our points!

    At the end of the day, KAP is better than Alex which is why Harbaugh & Baalke are going with KAP and not using useless empty stats!
