  1. It's this. Too many fans made baseless assumptions about the kid, forgetting that he is the only guy in college football history with 10,000 passing yards and 4000 rushing yards, forgetting that since he began starting, he has been NUMBER ONE in the NFL in Total QBR (that's right, ahead of Brady, Ryan, Rodgers, Brees, and every other elite QB). It is the surprise at seeing that 49er fans were right about him: he is a DIFFERENT kind of animal. Look at the film, and look at the stats. Next season Kaepernick will be discussed among the best. What are you going to focus on to stop? He can beat you in every conceivable way physical, and he's also talented between the ears. Mark my words now, next year Kaepernick will step into the "elite" level of quarterbacks, and will be universally recognized as such. Some guys were just completely caught off guard, because they didn't really follow him beyond one game, and simply assumed the one game was a fluke.
  2. There is no shame in Kaepernick consistently beating your defense. Next season he will be in discussion for the MVP award. Remember, this was his NINTH game, and he's already playing like a Franchise Quarterback. This is Robo QB, folks.
  3. SF, Baltimore and NE all run 34 defenses. The kind of tackles they want would be different from the kind that ATL wants. The 43 that ATL runs wouldn't be as effective with a massive slow guy in the middle as a somewhat big but more agile guy like Jonathan Babineaux. Unless you're talking about changing schemes.
  4. Most of your guys have. I have been very impressed with the sanity of many of the posters here. The fact is, Atlanta is a very good team, and if this game is played 10 times, I think Atlanta wins at least 5. I think you guys all vastly underestimated Colin Kaepernick's ability to throw from the pocket, and I think he was the real difference in this game, but the Falcon's offense looked completely unstoppable. The only thing that stopped the Falcon offense was the Falcons. Even on that last pass: it was BEHIND. Had Ryan led the WR, that's a first down or more. The thing is, perfection is hard to keep up for an extended period. For the first quarter and a half, the Falcon's were literally running PERFECT passing offense. What went wrong for Atlanta is that Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers offense was approaching perfection after the 1st quarter themselves. It is LEGAL to hold onto a WR in the box 5 yards past the line of scrimmage like he did. However, as I showed in my screen cap, when the ball was in the air, he WASN'T holding White. He was reaching around him to hit the ball with this left hand, while his right hand was out in front in the air, not even touching White.
  5. Prior to the ball being thrown, he was completely legal. When the ball was in the air, he was no longer impeding White's motion, which means it wasn't PI.
  6. I could understand it if there were actually a series of penalties called on the Falcons that drastically affected the game, like in the 2005-2006 Super Bowl. But when your team is called for TWO penalties? You've got to be drinking something really strong to believe it was "fixed."
  7. Of course. And the 49ers having twice as many penalties called against them than Atlanta was more of the refs fixing the game for the 49ers. Remember that holding call against San Francisco that took away a big gain to Vernon Davis? There was a defensive holding/facemask by the defense that wasn't called. Yeah. The game was fixed. /sarcasm. This. Come on, man...
  8. My team lost therefore the NFL is fixed. Seriously?
  9. apparently didn't matter, did it? That's the extent of my response to the trash talking from ATL fans regarding the 49ers blow out loss to the Seahawks. As I said before, the league is about match ups, and the transitive property doesn't apply. I would be talking about serving crow about it, but that would be cannibalism. That said, Atlanta has the best offense I've seen in a couple of years. You guys will be fine next year, even without Tony. Defensively, you are still good enough to win it all. A couple of upgrades and you guys will have a very good shot.
  10. Robinson's antics didn't have much to do with the Falcon's loss in that Super Bowl. They were simply unfortunate to be playing against one of the most complete teams in NFL history. Even if Robinson had been a model citizen, Atlanta would have lost that game. The 98 Broncos were just too good. Not a single weakness on that team, in fact, they were the best or near the best at almost everything.
  11. Apparently he had a witness the entire time. This seems to be a scorned female trying to get some money, attention, or revenge. **** hath no fury. (or she's a Falcon Spy...) *Seriously, you can't say H E double hockey sticks here?
  12. Vick is barely 6 feet tall and constantly injured. That's the point of all this "new breed" talk about Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick. That they're like Vick, but big and strong.
  13. Time will tell, however: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPEP76Zqcyo
  14. Best non-combine 40 result for Lewis: 4.53. Best non-combine 40 result for Willis: 4.37. In the least, Willis is a lot faster. He has defensive back speed.
  15. They're looking at match-ups. They are basing the assumption on your statistically poor run defense (you are 12th worst). They are failing to consider that if your offense gets a two score lead, defending the run will be of no concern.
