If Gabbert could ever hit a wide open receiver downfield I might die of shock. The television announcers kept saying our offensive line was not giving him time to throw but I saw plenty of plays where there weren’t any defenders near him and he unloaded or ran out of the pocket when he could have waited in the pocket for his receivers to get open.
When you add his usual two to three interception per game, we didn’t have a chance. I can’t wait to hear his excuses when he should be apologizing to his fans for letting the smell out of the outhouse. Of course we have the alternative choice of putting Colin Kaepernick on the field but Chip seems to think Kaepernick is even worse than Gabbert so we are probably gambling nineteen million dollars worth of 2017 cap space on him not getting hurt while he also stinks up the place.
I feel sorry for Chip. How do you concentrate on the play calling when you are trying to think up excuses for Gabbert after the game? Thank goodness for the “I have to watch the tape” excuse. If that isn’t bad enough, he has to think of a nice way to tell reporters that Kaepernick stinks even worse than Gabbert without bruising Kaepernick’s ego and angering his fan base. No wonder Chip makes the big bucks.
