After intense examinations of our first two outings, I immediately appreciate Coach Harbaugh's genius. In game one I saw a heavy dose of the trademark westcoast offense slant patterns. Most were overthrown, underthrown, etc..by QB Alex Smith. Although the accuracy wasn't there on the passes, the WR's running the routes were in position for a pass completion. In game two on a Kyle williams shallow post corner route I replayed over, and over. On this play I realized the execution of the route with the crossing wide out.
Harbaugh has also managed to be creatively simple, but not predictable. Most formations that the team lines up in are Hybrid. With the talented personel at TE and size at WR these formations work. Also the run game has been emphasized. I really love the depth we now have on the O-line. Killgore was a steal in the 5th round for sure. I see him pushing for Chilo Rachal's spot in the immediate future. The blocking protection was great, with the cup only half full. The aquisition of Colin Kapernick will prove to be absolutely ingenius. He has a laser beam arm/accuracy, and Vince Young type atheticism. Alex Smith showed flashes worthy of a first round pick at times. His consincy is suspect though, as we all know after 6 painfull years at the helm. This kid Kendall Hunter is awsome. His speed, toughness, elusiveness, size, and vision make him a lagitmate contender for the dynamic duo with Gore. Hope the 49ers re-sign the Tank. We lost T.O. and OLB Julian Peterson from being cheap. PAY FRANK MAAAAAAN.!!!!

My overall accessment of Coach Harbaugh is he is an excellent coach. I can tell that already. He plays to the talent of the teams personel, and adjust his schemes accoringly, oppsed to Singletary's "we play our game regardless of what the opponent does" mentality . He scouted some great players in the draft during the off-season also. B.Edwards, J.Morgan, M.Crabtree, will be sick.Thank's for reading. Peace Stelf Bombz
