Jack Harbaugh Claims Jim Said Kaepernick Was Best Player In 2011 Draft Back Then

last year the 49ers played the Ravens with Alex Smith starting at QB and got shut down 16-6. Obviously the stakes are higher this go around, but I don't think you're doing justice to Colin's superior talent to say they're just as good as each other. It's going to be harder for the Ravens to sack Kaepernick 9 times like they did Smith, and so long as he can evade that rush and extend the play, the longer it's going to take for them to subdue the 49ers offense. That is unless Kaepernick just starts throwing picks everywhere and looks lost trying to find an open man, which I think is unlikely.

I still think Cam would look better than both of them if you throw him in that niners team, but unless either a: the Panthers' administration gets their act together quickly or b: Cam leaves this black hole called charlotte and moves to a franchise that knows how to build a football team, we might never see this materialize. But if it happens I'm totally throwing it in the face of everybody that spent years haranguing Cam for stupid bullshit like 1000 times over.

I don't think Kaepernick is anything like Smith in terms of skills set. I simply said the system they run makes quarterbacks look better than they might be in another system. That is a complement to Harbaugh that he has a quarterback friendly system. But I do think that the ravens will shut down Kaepernick and get in his head just like they did to Brady.

I am being optimistic I know (this is the time of year for it), but I think if Shula will bring in a more traditional NFl offense and will try to win games with it rather than audition for a head coaching job by installing a confusing complicated offense like Chud did, I think we can be very successful. That and working with Cam to be able to come back in the 4th quarter which is a skill he needs to work on. Going to a power run game complemented by a vertical power game should be very successful for us. Even the read option can work if we ran like San Fran or Washington rather than telegraphing like we in 2012. Plus not losing your starting center and having to shift everything on the fly every week with the offensive line,

You must must mean WIN GAMES in the 4th quarter? :sword:

Cause Cam has brought the team back many times during the 4th quarter the past two years, just to watch the defense (no matter what they were rated at the time), cough up the lead for the Panthers to lose the game, such as Chicago, 2nd Tampa Bay and the 1st Atlanta game this year. And there were others. The Panthers should be at least 10-6 now, from those three games alone.

Did you know that during 6 of Andrew Luck's 4th quarter comeback/game winners (one was a 50+ yd FG), the offense turned the game over to the defense with 2-6 min left and watched them hold the lead, no matter how poorly rated they were at the time or to end the season? That's what helps a QB more than anything/stats. It's situational defense when it counts!

Not that Newton played every 4th quarter great (nobody does). However, he certainly made enough comebacks and gained the lead often enough, his first two seasons, but never got the defense to hold up their end of the bargain during plenty of games when it really counted.

Guys, Jim Harbaugh says all kinds of crazy poo to pump up his team. He did th same with Alex Smith last season. I think he said something along the lines of Alex Smith being a top 3 QB and the "long-term QB of the 49ers".

He says these things to show his unwavering support of his players.

Todd McShay said Blaine Gabbert was the best player in the 2011 draft. So yeah, opinions are stupid and don't mean diddly squat

Wouldn't necessarily say that of everyone, but McShay's usually are.

So Daddy Harbaugh claims Jim said Kaep was the best player in the 2011 draft?

Really weird drafting Aldon Smith ahead of him then and rolling the dice that the guy you think is "the best player in the draft" may not be there when you pick again in the 2nd round.

He'd still have to go by the team's draft board when it came time to make the picks. Coaches have input on that, but GMs usually have the final say.

There is no question that our defense folded in some games quicker than a 5 dollar lawn chair. And It surely wasn't Cam's fault more than others. But he is not a great last second hero rallying the team in the last 2 minutes of the game. And that is almost becoming commonplace.

I have confidence that he has the ability to do anything he wants to do. The question is whether he has the confidence to do it. Whether he has the confidence like Ryan did when he rallied the falcons against us the first time.
