Because a long time ago we had to deal with media folks talking about how Kaepernick and Griffin were going to run the league and leave Cam in the dust while all they worried about with Newton was why he had a towel over his head. Meanwhile the Huddle knew that RG3 was ruined before he could get started, and Kaepernick was a one-read QB on a loaded roster with an incredible coach who would be figured out by the NFL in no time. And that's exactly what happened. Sweet, sweet comeuppance.
And again, because it cannot be emphasized enough even though the naysayers want to argue otherwise, he has accomplished this while putting the team in rebuilding mode. "Gettlemagic" is not about nailing every draft pick, because he hasn't. But what he has done is put forth a plan and stuck to it, come hell or high water, putting the franchise in a position to be flexible once locking in the foundational guys he was given when he got the job. It's so refreshing to see a franchise that appears to have a plan and has folks on the same page. As a Hornets fan who has seen the alternative, I can tell you that's really something that should be appreciated. Rivera isn't perfect, Shula isn't perfect, but in the big picture we are in a much better place in franchise history than we we have been in awhile, and the long-term record bears that out.
