Quick Thoughts on Seahawks vs. 49ers NFC Championship Game


Well Addicts, it’s the final playoff game before the big dance and what a game it’s been. As I did earlier with the Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots match up, I thought I’d throw you my quick thoughts on this game as it’s been playing out.

- San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is developing nicely. Although I still believe that Alex Smith is the superior quarterback of the two, CK7 is turning into quite the signal caller. That jump pass for a touchdown in the third quarter was fantastic and pure arm strength.

- Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is definitely the lesser of these two quarterbacks. He’s much more inconsistent than Kaepernick and really more of a game manager, though he managed to make a few great plays in this game. The big 51-yard pass to receiver Doug Baldwin was huge as was the go-ahead touchdown at the start of the fourth quarter.

- Both of these defenses performed as advertised, though I’m surprised there haven’t been more interceptions.

- It is more evident to me than ever that the Chiefs absolutely have to upgrade their receiving corps. After watching what Kaepernick has been able to do throwing to Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis really makes me salivate thinking about what a better passer like Smith could do with an upgrade at receiver next year.

- Jim Harbaugh is one of the most emotional coaches I’ve ever seen.

- Marshawn Lynch is truly deserving of his nickname “Beast Mode.” That guy is incredible. It never ceases to amaze me that with three or four 250-pound-or-more defensive linemen on him, he can still move forward for three or four yards.

- I really hope that whoever wins this game can beat the Denver Broncos.

Those are my thoughts, Addicts. What do you think?

    Kap is the same as all the other running QBs of all time Micheal Vick different name.Wilson can be better Seattles Offense is weak don’t know what’s wrong there.I cannot believe a franchise would allow a player to act like Sherman does.I don’t think I’ve ever disliked a player so much.He is a classless selfish little child.He trumps my hate for Rodney Harrison by leaps and bounds.

    That was great. I really hate Kap I wish they would have broke his leg the interception will do.

    The 9ers got jobbed by the refs the same way did.

    Anyone who is still saying that Alex is better than Kaep, either didn’t watch kaep’s performance or have no idea what they are talking about. Alex is a very good QB with limited talent and is probably playing as good as he will ever play right now. Kaep has barely touched the limit of his ability and is making plays that Alex can only dream of making. How many QB’s can move to their left and get any zip on the ball? I doubt that their are 6 QB’s in the NFL who can make those throws like Kaep did. And maybe none. Most have to stop and get their bodies and feet lined up to make that throw. And as for using their feet, I don’t think their is another QB including Vick that has the speed and ability to see the field as good either.

    Jason, you aren’t old enough to know how much disdain the NFL had for the AFL. Old hands like myself won’t ever forget and we will always root for our AFL when it comes to the Superbowl. The Broncos are our division representatives and we should be proud and root for our division. When and if the Broncos win the Super bowl it will make the Chiefs and other teams in our division proud and bring recognition of our division as one of the best divisions in pro football.
