Morning everybody! Now that we're two days removed from that God-awful performance on Thursday, I think I can say I'm not going to really be forgetting it the rest of the season. This wasn't just a loss, it was a defining loss. Now, on the flip side, Seattle, I'm pretty sure you haven't gotten your mojo back by beating the 49ers. You just got the 49ers on the schedule. That's it. I find it rather funny how Seattle thinks they won the Super Bowl after that game--they should be concerned about limping into the playoffs at this point.
Yes, that's how bad we are.
And yet, I'm not too furious. We are truly rebuilding. I see a lot of good things from the players, just poor coaching. I still want to know why the loser of the Devey/Tiller Competition got to continue starting. I'd also like to know why Kap having some 1-read and go plays were not a factor in the gameplan. And yes, while Kaepernick is part of the problem with the offense, he's not the entire problem. Lump in Geep Christ's playcalling and that awful offensive line and then you got the sum of all fears.
On another note: Good that Tartt gets the start. I've seen some promise out of the guy, and I think, given our current situation, playing time is perfect for this guy. if he can get his coverage skills down, receivers will be flat SCARED to catch a ball in his zipcode (remember when they were just afraid to catch a ball against us?). So while the Bethea injury sucks, this is a blessing in disguise for the young-gun.
