49ers Offense Averaging 30-40 pts. / Game




Has anyone else noticed how the 49ers offense, under Colin Kaepernick, has been averaging 30 to 40 points per game? Earlier this season, I was opposed to Colin Kaepernick taking the job in the fashion that he has because I felt Alex Smith was a good and efficient quarterback.

However, I have come to realize that may be just the problem. He is a good and efficient quarterback, perhaps meaning he is only good enough to get us by with an average of two touchdowns while our 49ers defense does the rest. Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick is an "exceptional" quarterback because of his uncanny ability to make plays with his feet just as well as throw a wicked, evil deep ball with pinpoint accuracy. Is this the difference that Jim Harbaugh realized at some point this season? Is it the reason he seized the opportunity and abruptly made the switch?

Synopsis:

Alex Smith = Good and Efficient

Colin Kaepernick = Great and Exceptional

As unrealistic as it is, I hope that somehow Alex Smith stays a 49er and remains our number two option at quarterback. He remains the best alternative we have to Kaepernick, who is so remarkable an athlete that it will be profoundly difficult to find another player with his gifts. If I could compare Kaepernick to any quarterback, I'd call him Steve Young on steroids.
