It was closer than it could have been, but we'll take it. Kaepernick once again mixes dumbass plays with great ones using his legs. His 3rd and 8 scramble on the final drive was the biggest play of the game.
Our game plan was good, but once again, there is some type of communication problem between Kaepernick and the sideline or something, because the Niners constantly are wasting time outs during games. In the beginning of the 2nd half, Kaepernick forgot his wristband with all the plays on it and needed a time out on the first play of the 2nd half.
My only gripes were not running the ball on 1st and goal from the 5 and not finishing in the redzone on those early possessions. Rodgers almost made us pay.
The final drive was great, however, burning 4 plus minutes and getting down into field goal range. Great clock management.
Crabtree played great and the defense was stout all day. We let them back in it, but I could tell we were playing not to give up the big pass play, which is why Lacy's had a decent running day. (a game plan the Chiefs should have used in the 2nd half yesterday). Rodgers made some great plays - the fourth down play and one of the TD throws. Hard to complain with how the defense acquitted itself overall.
Onto Carolina. In my fake better, I'll be putting $40 or so on the Niners.
