What  a great game. Love playoff football. Watching the Dolphins every week I'm always reminded around this time a year that once you hit 20 points or so you are allowed to keep scoring.  It's refreshing.

karmachameleon: Kaepernick, with his tattoo sleeves and habit of bicep kissing, seems too full of himself for someone who puts up such anemic production.


Kaepernick is not man enough to go one-on-one with the genetic freak!

karmachameleon: I'm a Seahawks fan so I have no horse in this race.  They are two very different quarterbacks, to put it in a nutshell Smith is very conservative and Kaepernick is a cowboy.  Yes, Kaepernick posts reasonable numbers, even if his passing production and efficiency isn't much to look at.  But I think that Smith understands the game very well - he's got football smarts - while Kaepernick strikes me as someone who only plays well because his coach wouldn't allow anything else.  i.e. if Kaepernick were to screw off too much, he'd be yanked...but make no mistake, Kaepernick's natural tendency is to screw off, and he does plenty of that.  I don't think he's that smart, and I don't respect the way he got his job, nor do I respect Harbaugh's handling of that situation.  If he wanted Kaepernick all along, he didn't need to wait for Smith to get injured...oh wait, yes he did because there was no good justification for replacing him.  Smith is 29, not exactly Methuselah, so I don't much buy that argument either.  The 49ers would have been better off trading Kaepernick and retaining Smith, IMO.

I could totally be wrong.  And I concede this might just be a matter of personal taste.  I respect players who are students of the game, and Smith's improvement over the years tells me he's a student because that's about the only way he could have improved to the point that he has.  Kaepernick, with his tattoo sleeves and habit of bicep kissing, seems too full of himself for someone who puts up such anemic production.  I think the 49ers are winning largely in spite of him, not because of him.  Contrast with the Seahawks, who also don't have the league's #1 passing attack in terms of sheer numbers, but note that that's by design, and that Russell Wilson and his smarts on the field is a huge part of why the Seahawks win so many games.  I think Smith is similar, if much more conservative even than Wilson.  I get the feeling that the 49ers could win just as much if not more if they had a quar ...


The Niners' passing game is VERY efficient.  7,7 yards per attempt is great.  21-8 TD-INT ratio is, if not great, very solid.  Kap's numbers are low because the Niners are a run-first offense.  Wilson's numbers are better, but it's the same phenomenon there.  Wilson was one of the best QBs this year, and he only put up 3357 yards.

I was against the move at the time, since I like Smith a lot and was happy to see him finally succeed.  But Kaepernick's more than proved himself so far.  I'll take 2 picks and a cheaper and younger QB, who in what everyone seems to want to call an off year still beat Alex Smith in passer rating.

Long time Chiefs fan - and getting flack from several FB friends for my disappointment in my Chiefs - but my complete lack of surprise.

First of all - if you go into the half with a 4 TD lead...you SHOULD win.  Granted, we had some strange force blow threw in the 3rd that made the Bubonic Plague look like a paper cut,....but the apologists keep saying 'Hey...we had a great season...we started with a 9-0 record!'  Uh...do they recall that the schedule we got was for a team that was bringing up the rear?  We only played 3 teams with a winning record this season!!!!  I'll be more impressed when we aren't playing a majority of teams who are slightly better than the flag football squad sponsored by Dave's Auto Parts in Moline Illinois!!!!!

As a lifelong Chiefs fan, you get really used to their unique ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory:  It's apparently in Arrowhead DNA to fail when there's a 90% chance you won't.  Doesn't make me love my team any less...much like a parent whose child flunks a grade:  I still love the kid, but DAMN, is he a huge disappointment.

Please tell me we are going to do something new with the Defensive Coordinator for next year?  Blowing 28 points, regardless of injuries, should mean someone gets a pink slip over this most epic of fails!!!!

All right, fair enough.  I still don't think he's the smartest QB of the bunch, but time will tell.

Be careful what you wish for. You might end up with the o-line coach as your DC.

Nice headline, subby. That about sums it up. You lose your future HOF running back in the first drive of the game, his back up becomes Natrone Means 2.0, you lose him late, and the 3rd string RB misses a pretty simple sideline pass that would've been a touchdown for the other two guys (okay, maybe Smith over threw him a bit, but still.)

The Chiefs are absolutely cursed.

Well you guys would have to get a future HOF running back first for this to actually happen.

Mi-5: That loss was all down to defense, or the fact the Chiefs didn't have any. Alex Smith played well, but the Chiefs defense couldn't stop a PeeWee team last night. I was checking into to game regular, and when I saw the Chiefs up 31-10, I thought they had it in the bag.Then I saw the Colts scored. I immediately thought the Colts were gonna pull it out because it seemed that KC was playing prevent defense the rest of the night.Andy Reid better call Mayflower, because if I'm the Chiefs owner, that loss is inexcusable.


Pretty sure the Colts could get him Mayflower's number if he needs it.

This ain't the NBA; you don't fire the likely Coach of the Year for a playoff loss. They got the lead on a series of unlikely plays, and it was taken away on the back of a couple of REALLY unlikely plays.

Is there a clock management portion of the Coach of the Year test?

That aside, your response tells me you ain't from Baltimore:
