If anything, it made Texans fans feel better

/This is a very unpredictable season

I hate the Patriots, but give him grudging respect. Oh but how sweet that game was. The 49ers were like that chick in high school that was out of your league, but let you have a shot at her. She'd let you call her, walk her to class, talk to her with her friends. She'd even hug you and kiss your cheek. And then just as you finally had the balls to ask her out and make her yours, she would drop the 'I have a boyfriend' bomb on you and leave you cold, alone, empty and crushed.



That game would have made me a fan of theirs, if I weren't miserably a Bills fan living in Arizona.

I did kind of enjoy how Brady gave them some hope, but the 49ers snatched it away. Had to make the defeat somehow even more soul-crushing.

The only thing that cheered me up after Antonio Brown repeatedly ruined yet another great opportunity for the Steelers was watching the Patriots lose at home to a backup QB.

I was rather impressed with young Mr. Back-Up QB.
I hope he can keep going. I'm curious to see what his future holds.

Wow-- did you at least get a handy out of it?

Bill Belichick usually doesn't offer much when he meets with the media. He's usually quiet, disinterested and snarky - and that's when the Patriots win a game

If I had to do that job, I would respond to every sportswriter's question with "that's the stupidest farking question I ever heard. Next question."

All my press conferences would be very short.

Kaepernick is not a backup QB. He's the starter. And he's gonna be very good for a very long time.

I've been a fan of his since he played at UNR (live in Carson City). He's a lot of fun to watch. I've been a 49er fan since I could walk. Born in SF, father/grandfather/great/great great/etc born there.

I was on the edge of my seat last night. Certainly happy, but mostly relieved at the end. I'm still wondering why Marshall Faulk still thinks that they should put Alex back in. He talks like he's disappointed with the coaching for leaving Alex on the sidelines; even after the game last night.

Belichick never talks at press conferences. I think he hates them passionately.
 
2012-12-17 03:46:13 PM  
Wait a second- you expect me to honestly believe that Bill Belichick wasn't a velvet ray of sunshine?

Get out of here.
 
2012-12-17 03:57:16 PM  
I'll be perfectly honest with you: The Patriots just played two of the toughest games of the season, right up there with Denver & Baltimore back in October. They went 2-2 in those four games.

I'll take it. Of course, I'll get pissed if they somehow fark up the next two, but I'll take what they've given this year. And having a game that sloppy this late in the year is a good awareness check, anyway.

I was one of the somewhat rare people who thought benching Smith was a mistake, and I'm still waiting for Kaepernik to have some sort of awful meltdown, but he's been great.

At his worst (the Rams game), he gave away the lead, only to instantly run like 60 yard and then bounce a game-winning TD pass off Delanie Walker's hands.

His biggest issue right now is taking the snap.

Well, at least Kaepernick looks far less invincible than he did in that first outing.

Two best teams in the division have the two cheapest QBs.

Heh, good on Bill for not choking the shat out of that idiot for harping on that hold call. Props to the Pats for the rally.

Ha. If sports media was actually doing their job every single question posed to that man would be about his cheating.

I'm honestly still astounded that the league danced through that like it was no big deal.

At one point, he lead the Niners to a 31-3 lead over the Pats. Yeah, they gave a lot of those points back, but building up that kind of lead over one of the best teams in a long time. Doing that a month in to your career as a starting QB? Man, nobody should ever doubt Harbaugh's decisions again.
 
2012-12-17 06:03:21 PM  
I hate the Patriots as much as anyone, but I gotta say, I have much respect for their icy cold efficiency. But everyone knows that they're in the most watered down, milque toast pansy ass division in the league, so they're not as good as they THINK they are when paired up with a true powerhouse team like the Texans.

Did I just use the term, "Powerhouse" and "Texans" in the same sentence and mean it? Somebody come over and shoot me.

Kind of like Peter King's comment in his article today about Kaepernick's "dumb interception" made by a second-year qb. He only had 4 tds, and it was an interception in the endzone. There were worse plays he could have made...like repeatedly fumbling the ball into the defense's hands. But let's not mention it when the Patriots play bad. We should only talk about the mistakes the team that won the game made.

He annoys me, but I was hoping to read something other than his brady-worshipping since they nearly got their a**es handed to them. But nope.

I don't get the hate.  I mean, they're going with the hot hand.  Lots of QBs lose jobs this way, and lots of star QBs are born this way (see: Tom Brady).
 
They can't trade or release him now.  They need him as backup.  They'll get rid of him next year.

Kap's been great for the most part. But "hot hand" implies that Smith wasn't hot before he got hurt. In the game and a half before getting hurt, Alex Smith completed 25 of 27 passes.

Yeah, when your average starting field position is midfield, you tend to score a lot of points.

If Belichick's such a defensive genius, how come it's been at least 5 years since he had a defense that was worth a damn?
 
2012-12-17 06:28:27 PM  
And that's without bringing the final onside kick into consideration. You get 16 drives with an average starting position of your own 46 yardline, you should score a lot of points.

Krustofsky: If Belichick's such a defensive genius, how come it's been at least 5 years since he had a defense that was worth a damn?


His defense gave the ball to the 49ers six times in FG range, three times within the red zone, twice within their own 5-yard line?

Like Lane Kiffin's 15 second media session where the first qustion a reporter asked about an injured player and he just "I don't know... I gotta go" then up and left. I believe the reporter was banned from practice for a few days.

Krustofsky: If Belichick's such a defensive genius, how come it's been at least 5 years since he had a defense that was worth a damn?


Because he doesn't need it. They are better off investing their resources in the offence around Brady and letting them carry a mediocre to poor defence.

Their plan was to keep having the league bust CBs they wanted for drugs and wait for their teams to let 'em go. They got Talib but apparently the Seahawks weren't going to give them Browner or Sherman.

Krustofsky: If Belichick's such a defensive genius, how come it's been at least 5 years since he had a defense that was worth a damn?


a) He hasn't drafted well; he keeps trading down for more picks and picks less talented, raw, or character-problem players as a result.
b) Some poor free agent signings (e.g. Adalius Thomas)
c) Quick scoring offense means the defense ends up on the field more; also, high-scoring offense means you can coast with prevent defense and give up points for time sometimes

To be fair, Wilfork and Mayo are very good and the front 7 isn't bad; that secondary is just atrocious, however, and the league is dominated by passing.
