kapernick can run and brings energy but he cannot "sling it"-not that I have seen anyway
If by sling you mean throw the ball around and deep then yes, Colin can sling that ball. Dude has a monster arm. But he has no where near the accuracy or experience that TFB has.
He will give the Patriots more problems then Smith would have. PLus he is young and his lack of expereince may cause him to take some chances that a veteran normally wouldn't and this can be good or bad. And we all know about taking chances, if they work they are great but if they don't work then they are horrible. Hopefully Kaps won't be the great kind.
Why do you state this? They lost to STL and barely won last week. Since the moved to Kapernick, their offense has been far more sporadic and less consistent.
Smith was at 70% compl and had won player of the week at least once this year. Kapernick, as a rookie, is under the gun and most good coaches have field days with rookie QBs with film out on them.
You and BdBreu have poor analysis. Kapernick likes to make plays out of the pocket, so the gameplan is simple, which is bad news for the 49ers. BB will stack the box and have the pistol taken out like he did the wildcat last year.
These gimmick offenses will not work on the pro level. It's comical every year we see the media fall for it and some fans also fall for it.
(A) he's not a rookie.
(B) In 5 games his QB rating is 97, and he's completing 65% of his passes. He's extremely accurate, and if nothing else you'll learn that Sunday night. Anyone that's watched him already knows this.
And if our 27-13 win over Miami is "almost losing", then what was your 23-16 win?? Almost losing more?
It's going to be a good, close game.
CA, no need to get your panties in a bunch. I think most Pats fans have much respect for the 9ers, and expect a good game. There will be some who see a blowout coming; so what? They are Pats fans, talking on a Pats fan site.
I expect the Patriots to win, though I have super respect for the 9ers D. I just think this will be a game of field position, and I think the 9ers will have significant trouble moving the ball with a (for all intents and purposes) rookie QB playing in weather the likes of which he has yet to experience as a pro. The Patriots should win the time of possession battle, and I believe the 9ers D will tire in the end.
And I could be 100% wrong. Good luck to you, and here's hoping both teams show themselves well.
Relax, and enjoy the game.
