The 49ers entire offense is single read. Or do people still think Alex Smith turned into a good quarterback overnight? No, the 49ers don't have a complex offense, they just run it down less-talented team's throats.

What's a complex offense? You don't think all the formations the 9ers have complex enough? So, you think Brady bouncing up and down looking for a receiver to finally get open because he has so much time in the pocket and incapable of picking up first down with his legs complex? Come on, dude. If you're gonna post at least put some thoughts into it.

This is true.

There isn't much change in scheme from Smith to Kaepernic, except the downfield throws. Now of course, Kaepernick's run threat, creates an entire different dimension.

I feel with out the power outtage, SF would have been embarrassed. They caught a big break there.

Kaep and the rest of the team, would have broke, but they were able to catch their collective spirits, and make it a game due to Ravens malaise, including an awful punt and Ray Rice fumble. That doesn't happen with out the power delay.

Momentum IS NOT considered an advantage the same as you can't report that your mojo or groove was stolen. Momentum as it relates to sports is too abstract to quantify. Thus it's best to focus on the plays on the field and their results. Momentum in sports is as factual as voodoo. So, if you want to discredit Kaepernick's talent you better come up with something other than MOMENTUM. I know athletes are dumb but I didn't realize the fans are even dumber.

For example, how do you know for sure SF would have been embarrassed? How do you prove something like that? Both team had their best 11 players on the field. Both team received the 30 minutes blackout break. In fact, after play resumed SF failed to convert on a 3rd down, thus giving the ball back. And not to mention, SF did the same thing in all 3 of their playoff games. Down by a lot and crawl back up.

Agreed, he is not to different from RG3 although i give Kap the edge because he actually throws down field more and can hit covered receivers.. Both of them have a ways to go to be true pocket passers. Great offensive lines and run games help them out a lot.

That true pocket passer crap is overrated and will become obsolete soon. It's all about putting points on the board and the 9ers does that pretty well. If pocket passing were so great Jim Harbaugh would have stuck with Smith. There are over 20 mediocre pocket passing QBs in this league. Teams are trying to do away with them because they can barely get to the playoffs with them and when they're in the playoffs they're barely competitive. Did you watch pocket passing Schaub in the playoffs with that weapon filled team. Imagine if you stick a Cam or Kaepernick on that team. Big time!

The only person that I thought could lose the game for the 9ers was Colin, and I was partially wrong.

Usually they play very sound football, but last night, allowing a fumble, INT, and a kickoff return was very strange.

The lights were just a little too bright for Kaep last night. It won't be the last time we see them in the playoffs though.

Smith was benched because he was a overall average Qb. There are alot mediocre Qbs because there such a high volume of them. It just odds and probability. If " dual" Qbs suddenly become just as plentiful you can bet in there being plenty of average and bad ones around the NFL.

A good Qb, regardless of style approach is very hard to find. That why there will always be much more mediocre ones then good.
