When I was into football, I was angry when the 49ers fired Jim Harbaugh. But to be fair, he did dump Alex Smith for Colin Kaepernick.
Alex Smith is QB for the 5-0 Chiefs. . Jim Harbaugh gave us Colin Kaepernick and is Coach of a college team. Thanks Jim. 🤘🏻…
I hope Alex smith balls out just to prove to Jim harbough that we shoulda kept him instead of Colin Kaepernick
My cousin and his gf met Alex Smith and my cousin Melina met Jim Harbaugh and saw Colin Kaepernick and other players today. :/
How good my 49ers are: - When scoring 20-plus points, Jim Harbaugh's San Francisco 49ers are 22-0-1 in their last 23 games. Including playoff games, the 49ers have only lost one game in the Harbaugh era when scoring 20 or more points - Michael Vick has had three rushes of 50-plus yards in his 10-year NFL career. Colin Kaepernick has three rushes of 50 or more yards since Week 13 - Colin Kaepernick had the NFL's best rating on passing attempts of 21-plus yards through the air (minimum of 10 attempts). He was the only player with at least 10 attempts to complete more than 50 percent of his passes that far downfield. Alex Smith had the NFL's next best completion percentage on throws of 21-plus yards (47.1 percent). - Defense has allowed opposing offenses to score only 14.3 ppg in the playoffs. Offense is perfect in the redzone.. in the playoffs.
Ok I know the anticipation is killing you! Super Bowl 47 is going to be interesting. This is one of the most evenly matched games in the Super Bowl In quite some time. I will go position by position and tell you who has the edge QB-even I know Joe Flacco has been very good this post season (8 TDS 0 INTs) but i'm not sure which Flacco your gonna get. My gut says you will get the good Flacco because of how well he is playing. Colin Kaepernick is playing at a level that you only hear of once in a lifetime. I'm not sure the Ravens can keep him contained for the whole game. Bottom line they are both the reason these teams are here. RB-Ravens Ray Rice has been a beast ever since he has been in this league. Frank Gore has actually played well this year. He has decent backups that help. Rice is the man in Baltimore and I will be curious to see what he can do against this 49ers defense. Rice can carry this team on his shoulders so if he is playing great dont be surprised if they go to him a lot especially if the . ...
2013 Super Bowl final predictions: Ravens at 49ers Writer Prediction Comment PETE PRISCO Senior NFL Columnist Ravens 27, 49ers 24 I still have problems seeing a running quarterback winning a Super Bowl. Yes, Colin Kaepernick has been great in the playoffs, but he has just nine total starts. That concerns me. Joe Flacco is playing at an elite level, even if he's not considered elite. The 49ers are vulnerable to the pass when they get spread out, which I think the Ravens will do. The physical defenses all had good games against the 49ers' offense. One more thing: I will take a pocket passer all day long over a running quarterback. Read option? Not for my Super pick. CLARK JUDGE Senior NFL Columnist Ravens 24, 49ers 20 Running back Ray Rice calls the Ravens "a team of destiny," and I believe. I believe in fourth-and-29. I believe in Rahim Moore. And I believe in a Super Bowl upset. I don't know what's driving this team -- if it's Ray Lewis, the memory of Art Modell or the play of Joe Flacco -- but what I kno ...
Who had a bigger impact on their team this year? When Jim Caldwell replaced the very popular Cam Cameron for the Baltimore Ravens, or when Colin Kaepernick replaced the injured Alex Smith for the San Francisco 49ers?
If Alex Smith feels any bitterness over losing his position as the 49ers’ starting quarterback to Colin Kaepernick, he’s not showing it. In fact, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said today that Smith is the person who has done more than anyone to prepare Kaepernick to play, and that Smith still continues t...
New post: Jim Harbaugh: Alex Smith coaches Colin Kaepernick more than I do
I'm torn by the fact that 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh says Alex Smith now coaches Colin Kaepernick more than he does.Part of me sez what a great teammate, putting the team first despite him losing his job thru no fault of his own. Another side sez he should be more of a *** if he wants to make it in this league. The N F.L. stands for Nice guys Finish Last.
Jim Harbaugh: Alex Smith big help to Colin Kaepernick -
A year ago, Kyle Williams and Billy Cundiff/Lee Evans were goats. This year, Colin Kaepernick and Joe Flacco redeemed them. I've been wanting a Harbowl since last year's losses, and that's exactly what will happen. Kudos to Jim for making the ballsiest move of the season in benching Alex Smith. Kudos to John for winning in Foxborough against Tom Brady and Bill Belicheck, virtually impossible to do. I am very excited for Super Bowl Sunday this year. Best of luck to both teams.
Jim Harbaugh benched Alex Smith for Colin Kaepernick and John Harbaugh fired Cam Cameron and went with Jim Caldwell. Both gambles led to SB.
Put this in the short story book called No Guts, No Glory! On the west coast Jim Harbaugh pulled a much criticized move to bench Alex Smith who had one of the highest QB ratings in football this year but a concussion midway through the year lead to unproven 2nd year QB Colin Kaepernick becoming started for the Niners for the rest of the season despite Smith regaining his health and being cleared to return. The result, the Niners to the Super Bowl. On the east coast, John Harbaugh, Jim's brother, decided to fire his offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron, after 12 games despite the Ravens being in first place, replacing him with former Colt head coach Jim Caldwell. The two gutsiest coaching moves this year, and you can make the argument that those moves are why the HarBowl will happen in New Orleans in two weeks.
Earlier in the year, I questioned the wisdom of keeping Colin Kaepernick as starter for San Francisco. I felt that it would eventually catch up with us and catch us out. I also felt terrible for Alex Smith, who had by no means played badly. I wish him the best in whatever he does next. I also now believe that Jim Harbaugh knew what he was doing in keeping Colin in at quarterback. I was wrong; even if fate is against us and our sixth Super Bowl, I believe that we have our future settled at the QB position. whilst I can't help but worry about a quarterback who will be playing in what, his 9th game as a starter, I also think he has the smarts to play a great game for us. If he does and we win, Harbaugh is clearly a genius, and really does do what is best for the team. Let's go and win it!
ATLANTA – In the biggest game of his life, Colin Kaepernick did it all for the San Francisco 49ers. The second-year signal caller showed veteran poise in a 28-24 road victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Sunday’s NFC Championship game. Not only was it his ninth start, but Kaepernick looked like a player wise beyond his years. He ran. He threw. He led and most importantly, he delivered the franchise’s sixth trip to the Super Bowl, set to be played in New Orleans on Feb. 3. Kaepernick led the 49ers back from a 17-0 deficit to unleash timely passes and bring the 49ers back with 14 unanswered points in the second half. “You have to stay calm,” Kaepernick said of his first-half mindset. “You have to try and lead your team.” The 17-point comeback marked the second-largest comeback rally in conference championship history. Kaepernick had a big hand in it, so did Vernon Davis. Kaepernick completed 16 of 21 passes for 233 yards, with one touchdown and a 127.7 quarterback rating. Davis led the 49ers wi ...
I picked the 49ers today. But I admit I was a doubter when Jim Harbaugh went with Colin Kaepernick over Alex Smith.
Congrats to the 49ers and their fans! Jim Harbaugh should let Alex Smith play the first half of the Super Bowl and then Colin Kaepernick the second half. I think it's only fair!
Jim Harbaugh rolled the dice with Colin Kaepernick and it looks like the young man has done what Alex Smith couldn't do.. San Francisco is going to the Superbowl and Jim Harbaugh has Papa Harbaugh smiling I'm sure we will see if Johnny boy can make it a Harbaugh Duel in the Bayou
Ok, so this means Jim Harbaugh made the right decision choosing Colin Kaepernick over Alex Smith.
Where are all of the folks that said that that Jim Harbaugh was making a big mistake by choosing Colin Kaepernick over Alex Smith?
Sports fans are indeed crazy. The 49ers are a fun team to watch, Colin Kaepernick is a great story and Jim Harbaugh is an amazing coach. The Patriots are the evil empire. Tom Brady is rich, an NFL QB, is a fashion model and bangs a Victoria's Secret model. Bill Belichick was caught cheating. I should be rooting for the 49ers but as a Steelers fan I really like being a fan of the only team with 6 Super Bowls so I'm rooting for the Patriots to win this game and the Super Bowl.
Back from my walk. Comfortable in shorts & T Shirt. Listening to NFC Championship. Congrats to the Niners. The Jerry Jones Cowboys could learn from the DeBartolo family. When Alex Jones comes back from injury Jim Harbough stays with Colin Kaepernick. If that choice faced the Cowboys Jerry would make the call. Would go to Smith. 49 ers overcome long drought. Back in the Super Bowl. No reason Cowboy fans can expect any turn around anytime soon. Just sayin.
WEST COAST REPRESENT.The 49ers are heading to a Super Bowl for the sixth time in franchise history. They will seek their sixth Super Bowl title when they face the winner of the Baltimore-New Orleans game in New Orleans on Feb. 3. Second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick will lead them there, further validating coach Jim Harbaugh's decision to make Kaepernick the starter over Alex Smith.
What a move by Jim Harbaugh putting Colin Kaepernick over Alex Smith that's good coaching.Congrats NFC CHAMPIONS 49ers!!!
We laughed when Jim Harbaugh made the switch to Colin Kaepernick. But bro is making all the haters look pretty stupid now. Hey John C. Marcario.here we go!
Hey Jim Harbaugh, why don't you go ahead and bench Colin Kaepernick tonight...I think Alex Smith gives you the best chance to win
At a press conference today, coach Jim Harbaugh expected to answer the question- Alex Smith or Colin Kaepernick?
Jim Harbaugh named Colin Kaepernick his QB. He doesn't want Alex Smith to be considered a backup though, just a starter who's not starting.
