No, its not impossible because it was Bradford, Jackson and Amendola who beat us. Subtract them and we should blow them out. We couldnt stop any of them so technically, THREE guys did beat us which is sad and pathetic.
So if Bradford, Jackson, and Amendola were on the field in a 3 vs. 11 situation they would have still come out on top? Their offensive line didn't have to block or anything like that? No other backs had to act in blitz pickup? No other wide receivers had to be accounted for? Three players on offense can literally beat 11 players on defense. And that makes sense. Okay Dan.

And yes you did say that. You implied it in so many words. Your direct quote:

This doesn't make sense as Smith has proved he can do it before. So what if it was last season. Just because it's a new year he can't do it? What? Why? He's playing better this year than he did last year.

Worse thing is that Harbaugh doesnt have the confidence in Smith to air it out or anything. Harbaugh wants Smith to be a game manager which is exactly what he is. He's meant to not turn over the ball, keep the game close and try to pull out a win at the end. Thats never going to change and I dont know about you but in my opinion, thats a crappy way to play the game.
I've changed my opinion Smith as of now. No he's not a top level quarterback, but from what I've seen and what Jim Harbaugh is trying to do, it's enough to get the 49ers to the Super Bowl. They almost did it last season and would have if it wasn't for two costly turnovers by Kyle Williams in a rainy game. If you don't like it, well you don't have to be a fan and watch the games.

If Kaepernick plays good against the Bears and gets us a win and shows that he can handle being a starter, then YES, I do think that he gives us a better chance at getting to the Super Bowl AND winning it because unlike Smith, he wont be just a game manager. He'll go out there and try to make plays and get us wins. Smith doesnt do that. He simply plays NOT to lose the team the game as opposed to playing to WIN us the game. There's a huge difference. A few players are going to be gone during the 2013 and 2014 off-seasons anyway so it doesnt matter and second, I prefer to find out now if Kaepernick is our future at QB or not. You talk about players getting older and/or leaving but if the team doesnt win with Alex this year and next year, then what? You start Kaepernick in his fourth season and final year of his contract with everyone else around him two years older and several players gone? Yeah, that makes a lot of sense too.
No, this is coming from a person that isn't immune to objectivity and has a enough common sense not to panic when a team is 6-2-1 or rather lose a game than tie it. You don't know what you're going to get in Kaepernick, please. Don't use your disdain for Alex to make conclusions about what Kaepernick can be which are unfounded. I wouldn't even get too excited about what he came in and did. It was the St.Louis Rams who didn't practice for him. You think Kaepernick is going to do that backyard football crap against the Bears? Please. We've seen Troy Smith have a great game coming into a situation like that. Kaepernick needs more structure to be a better pocket passer and it's clear that he isn't ready yet. Inserting him now, when the team has played well up to this point with it's starter is ridiculous. I can't believe you're laying all this crap Alex Smith, who played well up until the point he got hurt. Oh and I'm sure the free agent market will be clamoring for Kaepernick's services if his rookie contract runs out. Absurd.

Ridiculous notions of throwing in the towel aside, I watched the game again. Here are a few thoughts:

- Ahmad Brooks had a ridiculously good game and deflected three passes, almost one that was intercepted. He had a really good tackle as well on Steven Jackson on a toss to the right side late in the game. I think it was near the goal line.

- Danny Amendola was ridiculous. I knew this guy was decent, but he schooled the 49ers and came up with big plays all afternoon. Carlos Rogers in particular got clowned a couple of times. The 49ers needed to take him out of the game and double team him or something...and just take their chances with everyone else because Amendola was causing too much chaos.

- The running defense has been disappointing as of late and it seems like teams are more willing to take their chances pounding the football. Our entire defensive line seems to be underachieving this season compared to last year. The pass defense has improved, which is a bonus, but something just isn't clicking with Smith, Sopoaga, and McDonald. Weird. Hopefully they step it up in the second half of the season. They're too good to not be making an impact.

- The Rams should have won this game, but screwed themselves over by the 12 penalties they committed. They had a good gameplan coming into Sunday, and while I do believe that the 49ers would have found their rhythm had Alex Smith came in, St.Louis has really improved under Jeff Fisher. They didn't even have Jenkins or Givens in that game.

- The 49ers defense also had so many chances to get more than one turnover in the game, but kept dropping interceptions. I counted at least three that could have turned the tide. One was dropped by Brooks, arguably two because he had good position on both, Whitner dropped a pick although Patrick Willis nullified the play, and Goldson couldn't get his hands on a ball he broke up on a short pass over the middle. The defense was making it seem easy last season getting those turnovers, but guys are having a difficult time thus far making those kinds of plays.

- All of that said, the tie is still better than the loss, and keeps the 49ers in prime position to possibly get the #2 seed down the line. The Seahawks I think could still win the NFC West as they have a favorable schedule compared to the 49ers down the line, but they'd still have to play almost perfect and the 49ers would have to have a total meltdown. Should be interesting. I do think Russell Wilson is going to be a problem moving forward. He looks like the real deal just as a rookie. Anyways, can't wait for the game against the Bears. This will be the biggest test I think since the Giants game. I think both Cutler and Smith will play and I expect a defensive struggle. Chicago can't be thrilled having lost to Houston in primetime.

- By the way I can't believe Akers missed that kick. He's only kicking about 70% this year, which is ranked 30th and is quite jarring. Akers needs to get out of his funk.

True...I never said if. I am assuming that Smith wont be cleared because with the new rules, I dont think that any player has been cleared within a week.

Joe Staley was cleared within 4 days...Jahvid Best has yet to be cleared in over 13 months. Its up in the air.

And according to PFT Alex is getting a 2nd opinion on his concussion. 2nd opinions usually don't equal good news...

Meh. I'll take the glass half full approach. That was just a PFT "source". Matt Maiocco didn't even report it. Neither did Matt Barrows.

I like this comment from one of the users regarding the report you are talking about on PFT:

Quote:
Alex is a smart man. He is probably getting a second opinion because he wants to have a better understanding of his health. And he realizes that teams have a conflict of interest with respect to medical evaluations. So, chalk this up to a smart man gathering the facts of the situation.
By the way, Jay Cutler is looking doubtful to play against the 49ers Monday. But it's only Tuesday.

Oh and I'm sick of hearing about the Bears, the comparisons to the 1985 team, Charles Peanut Tillman, and so on and so on. I hope the 49ers crush them Monday.

Yes, a crushing of the Bears is necessary and needed to get this Niners team back with some momentum. They were my pick to be the (somewhat) surprise NFC Team this year, so I'm not shocked they are doing well. They are legit but I still think the 49ers are an overall better team; they just have to go prove it.
