    Not that anyone presumptuous enough to accuse me (without evidence beyond a perceived petty ulterior motive) would care what I had to say, but I’m not giving anyone thumbs up or thumbs down (aside from the few times I thumbs-downed my own posts). I’m here to post my opinions, and not to tell other people what I think about their opinions. I find a thoughtful reply more elegant and useful than a meaningless mouse-click over a representation of a human hand.

    Perhaps users are giving him thumbs down because his repetitive posts are a waste of bandwidth and eye-mileage. His typical post doesn’t even represent a complete English language phrase. Or maybe they’re giving him thumbs down because he communicates like an oversized pre-adolescent punk in a playground when he does string together coherent phrases, and people are hating his guts for it.

    I’m just throwing out some ideas because that’s what I do.

    Did someone just type a whole blog about a thumbs up & thumbs down and is elevating himself for convincing himself that he has more elegant replys than everyone else? The mere acknowledgement of the thumbs up and down is even more meaningless than the action itself. Phatablahblah cracks me up with the amount of time he spends typing on these blogs to try to make himself feel superior when he is obvious contradiction of what he is trying to convince himself he is.

    Of course, when I was saying this from about week thirteen onward last year, no one paid me any heed. They were so happy to have a quarterback that put up fantasy stat lines that they were blind to the negative impact on most of the other players.

    So now that you are willing to accept the truth about Kaepernick (because it was stated by a credentialed writer, and not merely because it was the truth), the truth that defenses don’t really respect his ability to read defenses and simply need to gameplan to keep him contained, will you at least concede that the 49ers aren’t absolutely going to run away with the division on account of having replaced Alex Smith?

    In 2010, Alex Smith helped the 49ers win games after Gore went out with the fractured hip. His record was 2-1 in those starts. Troy Smith’s record without Gore was 0-2 in starts. The 49ers are deeper than ever at halfback, but they absolutely cannot afford for Frank Gore to miss time due to injury this year. Their success depends on Gore. Kaepernick is the second most important player to that offense, and Pro Football Focus’ numbers proved that clearly.

    “injuries at wr 2nd year in a row”

    When Alex Smith quarterbacked between 2011 and 2012, the 49ers lost no offensive skill position players to injured reserve, but when Colin Kaepernick quarterbacked, the 49ers lost four: Josh Morgan in garbage time against the Buccaneers, Kyle Williams and Kendall Hunter on the same play against the Saints, and Mario Manningham against the Seahawks.

    I understand that some of the injuries were not because of throws Kaepernick made, but when taken as a whole, and viewed in the context of the 49ers having run different plays with Kaepernick under center, why did a quarterback who got 25% of the snaps end up with four out of four of the IR’d players? The 49ers’ new-look offense apparently needs depth like few other teams do.

    “and in my mind i agree gore is the guy teams try to stop first as we are a power running team still ty frank(god) gore”

    Except that it clearly wasn’t that way, especially in 2012, when Smith was quarterbacking. The writer attributed the defensive formations in part to the 49ers’ offensive looks, and so there is your point of reference. The roster was built for a smashmouth style of play from before the time Harbaugh took over the team, but under those conditions, Smith was able to make something out of an offense that had young but inexperienced talent on the offensive line, and no depth and little skill to speak of in the receiver corps. Defenses had to respect Smith’s ability to read and make plays, and that in turn opened up lanes for Gore.

    From behind Kaepernick, Gore’s yards per carry average was a full yard off his numbers when Smith was quarterbacking. Moreover, when Smith was quarterbacking, Gore rushed for gains on approximately 5 out of 6 carries, but when Kaepernick was quarterbacking, Gore rushed for gains on just over 3 out of 4 carries. Further, Gore only rushed for 5 or more yards on roughly 1 out of 3 carries when behind Kaepernick, but he rushed for 5 or more yards on better than 2 out of every 5 carries when Smith was quarterbacking (an almost 10% increase).

    Frank Gore definitely had more big runs with Kaepernick quarterbacking, but the cost was an increased rate of three-and-outs, and a bigger load upon the 49ers’ defense to hold scores down until the opposing defenses were tired enough that the Read Option obtained its maximum effect.

    NFL games are 60 minutes long, and if the 49ers’ opponents in 2013 are as well conditioned and as well coached as the Rams, Seahawks, and Ravens of 2012 were, they’re not going to be able to win games by virtue of exhausting opponents as they did against the Falcons or Saints.

    playcalling changes with dif personal are gonna change and grow watch teams try to defend us this year, as coach rolls up dif stratagies vs dif oppenants, like last year when we rolled the packers in the playoffs and then played a diff game against the falcons

    “thats not entirely fair to the coaches if u sugeest that they got them hurt, it might have had more to with it being late in the season”

    Certainly the coaches aren’t directly responsible for the injuries, but if you play a more high-impact form of an already high-impact sport, you are going to get more injuries. The opponents’ players are going to suffer for it too, but the offense is definitely going to struggle late in the season when the skill positions are depleted.

    Smith finished the 2011 season. Crabtree had been hurt for pretty much the whole year (his Plantar injury preceded training camp), and Ted Ginn was the number three receiver and was in bad shape by the post-season. But none of the offensive skill position players suffered catastrophic injuries at any time when Smith was quarterbacking between 2011 and 2012.

    It’s not anything more than another facet of the whole, and it alone is not a reason to change the way the 49ers do things. It is the way they have already determined they will do things going forward, and there’s little reason to think that this will change with the roster as it is today.

    For someone (waawaawaa)to even insinuate that Gore has not been the player teams have defensed against since year one of his being a starter, including 2010, 2011, 2012, is to be really ignorant. To even suggest that teams went into “any” game, game planning against Alex first, over Frank, shows your total lack of knowledge of 1) the 9ers team; and 2) football in general.

    Frank is a Hall of Fame running back, Alex will never sniff the Hall of Fame. Dude, you really need to take your head out of somewhere!! No Brag, Just Fact!!

    “your so right hermie….teams never worried about alex smith beating them it was stopping gore period”

    And so I reprise the stat I referenced earlier in this thread:

    Alex Smith’s record as a starter in 2010 when Gore was on injured reserve: 2-1
    Troy Smith’s record as a starter in 2010 when Gore was on injured reserve: 0-2
    Colin Kaepernick’s record as a starter with Gore against NFC West opponents: 0-2

    Colin Kaepernick is definitely better than Smith. Troy Smith, that is.

    “You’re so right.” What’s it like to go through life surrounding yourself with Yes Men because you can’t think your way out of a paper bag?

  40. By phatalerror on May 9, 2013 | Reply

    Correction: Kaepernick was 1-2 in starts against NFC West Opponents. His team defeated the Cardinals in week 17 when they started Brian Hoyer. (Troy Smith could have won that game.)

    “we all know teams put 8 in the box and forced alex smith to throw…check down charlie”

    Except that the writer referenced in this thread clearly stated that the 49ers’ opponents did not put as many defenders in the box against Smith as they did against Kaepernick.

    If Smith’s team was winning with him quarterbacking, why the slurs? Why paint him as an illegitimate quarterback? Why would having a quarterback that throws aggressively downfield but doesn’t help his team win games by taking what the defense gives him be an improvement?

    And there’s a big reason why I pointed out that Kaepernick has struggled against NFC West Opponents: The 49ers road to the Super Bowl in 2013 goes through the Seahawks, the Rams, and the Cardinals. If the 49ers don’t win their division, there is a strong chance they don’t earn a wild card berth, as those will likely be taken up by the second place teams of weaker NFC divisions. Kaepernick doesn’t have Smith around to get him key wins against division opponents early in the season. Kaepernick no longer gets the benefit of inheriting a team 4 games better than .500; he starts the season there.

    If Kaepernick is indeed as good as you believe him to be, there is no issue. If he is half as good as you believe him to be, the 49ers will take the NFC West. If he is only as good as I believe him to be, the 49ers play their last game of the year in week 17. It’s time for someone to start exceeding the expectations of some people while justifying the expectations of others.

    “there should be a higher number of 3-4 WR sets in 2014. That will be largely due to few reasons:”

    “1. We appear to have better depth at the WR position compared to prior years.
    2. We have younger players — and thus lesser experienced depth — at the TE position which may cause McDonald/Gray/Morrah to be in learning more in year 1 and contributing in 2014 & beyond.
    3. In relative terms, the future for WR position is more dicey than the TE or RB positions. Thus, we need to consciously develop more WRs so that we have quality starters and depth in future years.
    4. As Harbaugh/Roman try to stay ahead of expected defensive adjustments from the opponents, it could be a good advanced counter move to spread the field with 3-4 WRs and then have CK + a RB in the backfield. This ensures that a) defenses can not load up the box with 7-8 guys, and b) they also can’t go beyond a nickel defense in the secondary. In effect, it makes the defense more predictable and easier to decipher. There are very few defenses in the league who can effectively contain the run with a 6-man front. Forcing a 7th or 8th defender to play both the pas and the run can only help in creating space within the defensive alignment.”

    Hey phatal, I’m not attacking your opinions but how about noting the simple fact that Colin has started ten games and came one play (and one horrible call) from winning us the Super Bowl. I haven’t heard anybody say any of the stuff you seem to be hearing about Alex being an illegitimate quarterback. What I read is that we have one extremely talented young quarterback who wins games (including some impressive comebacks, never Alex’s strong point), and one qb who only finally started producing in the past couple years and is already well into the back end of his career. To not stick with kap when we could still milk a 2nd and 3rd (or 2nd, come on chiefs) round pick out of Alex is just dumb. I’m all for loyalty and I’ve had Alex’s back for most of a decade but seriously, it was time to move on. We already got tank carradine out of the deal and will get another quality prospect next year. Not too shabby for a guy that has maybe 5 years left in his tank. Coming up with all these obscure stats to make everyone else on here feel stupid for getting behind the team we have NOW is not being a very good fan. Root for your team, not for fellow fans to feel dumb. Peace.

    Well put, granny. And for the record, I really do have the utmost love and respect for Alex Smith. Most guys would have folded years ago after going through what he did the first 6 or 7 years, including the guy we didn’t draft(sorry packers’ fans). I wish him the best of the best in KC, and we’ll see him next year in a sweet revenge game. May it please be at arrowhead. As a transplanted California boy, I’d love to go see that game it would make my year. Red and gold forever, and here’s to shutting up the 12th man in week 2 and giving those crotchety old ’72 dolphins something to sweat about by the end of 2013.
