Easy Peasey

Friday’s opening exhibition game was quite an improvement over last year’s opening debacle in New Orleans. I wish it meant something more significant than polite applause. Still, it was football and we now get to see it every week till February.

The offense looked in mid-season form on the first drive, no doubt relishing the chance to play against the Vikings defense, instead of their own defense. Conversely, the 49er defense did not look as good, surrending two long drives.

Quarterback controversies are no stranger to 49er land, and this game set off this year’s model. But not for the starting job. Colin Kaepernick, Scott Tolzien, and Josh Joshnson are all vying for the two spots available at backup and backup’s backup. One guy probably has to go. Johnson didn’t get enough action to make much of an appraisal, but the other two did. Kaepernick looks like an excellent wildcat QB and Tolzien looks like an excellent backup QB. We’ll see how they look on Saturday against the Texans. And presumably get a longer look at Johnson.

Jim Harbaugh played RBs Rock Cartwright and Anthony Dixon extensively in the game. This could have been a “save the starters” ploy or a competition to see which of these two had more non-special teams value for what will be only one roster spot. Cartwright looked pretty decent, but Dixon is clearly on his way out of town at cut-down day. If he were smart, he’d already have his bags packed.

Next Saturday’s game against the Texans should be a sterner test for the offense. The Texans are viewed similarly to the 49ers, as young teams on the rise and capable of contending for the Super Bowl. Their defense was was a force last year and is expected to be so again this year, despite the loss of DE Mario Williams.

That brings us up to date on what everybody already knows.

Kaepernick’s 78 yard TD run defnitely caught the attention of the league, which probably thrills Harbaugh and Trent Baalke. Knowing how Harbaugh likes to get all his players involved in the action, it’s no stretch to envision Kappy trotting out for some wildcat plays during the season. Wildcat plays seem to be either quite effective or a total mess. We saw the mess part under OC Jimmy Raye, but we’ll assume that Greg Roman can concoct a more effective effort.

For the future, and thus Baalke’s smile, a few more runs like this one and Kaepernick’s value will increase around the league, making him attractive in trade should he be unable to unseat Alex Smith by the time Colin’s current contract expires. Any success Tim Tebow has this year will also enhance Colin’s value as GMs around the league murmur, “I want one of those.”

All in all, a fun opening game. And one that does nothing to dilute the validity of our offseason high expectations.

    Kappys got alot of potential, but damn i really like Tolzein….i liked him when the niners picked him up last year, and he did nothing to change my mind the other night..he just has that poise about him…and love the accuracy.and his reads..id like to see him with the #1’s against #1’s..i believe he’s a future starter..whether its with us , who knows…

  2. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Rex Ryan of the Jets said yesterday he wanted to draft Kappy. Isn’t that tampering?

  3. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Reckless and harmful blabbering.

  4. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The Jets are the Golden Child of the NFL. They can never do anything wrong nor will they ever be penalized. Anytime you turn on a NFL show there is always Jets news being reported

  5. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    If it was before the draft, Bergs, yes. 2 years later? Hardly.
    BTW, there’s a campground on the way to the Sierra Buttes called Berger Creek. A dry and dusty godforsaken trickle of water with a spectacular view of the buttes. Ended up camping at Goose Lake. Great fun out there. Didn’t catch any fish, but good times.
    Cartwright looked much more decisive than Dixon ever has. He’s a lock. Dixon is likely gone. I just hope (if this style of play is really how the season goes) that WRs don’t get very discouraged. The Niners early tried nothing downfield. Softshell Crabs got his 3 yard out. Swett Brain made a nice little adjustment on the TD pass. Other than that, the WRs weren’t involved very much until garbage time.

  6. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Turned on ESPN Sportscenter and naturally they had a report from Jet’s camp.
    The only reason is they’re in New York. This team has been to one lone Super Bowl which they won.
    That happened 44 years ago in 1968.
    Why don’t we see reports daily from Buffalo or Detroit? Could care less about the Jets with their oaf coach and manufactured QB controversy between 2 QBs that suck.

  7. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    unca- Did you go to the top of the Buttes. Their is a fire look-out tower with a spectacular view.

  8. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    BTW, about a mile up the road from where you were is a good place to camp for free with a great swimming hole.

  9. barleyfreakNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah and the catwalk that goes around the lookout has one corner where you are literally standing OVER a 1000+ foot drop — looking **through** the catwalk below your feet. Even though the thing seem rock solid (and it is built into the rock), it is impossible to not get an adrenalin rush every time I stand there. Cool place.

  10. barleyfreakNo Gravatar says:

    I must resist the urge to read too much into any preseason performance. It’s hard though. Tolzien does look poised. He has done nothing to diminish his stock, IMO. He’ll be on the team and not on the PS.
    My view of CK, or any QB that can run like a mofo, is can they pass? I just refuse to believe that the NFL is anytime soon going to embrace that style of play more than once in a random blue moon.
    If CK is going to be an NFL starter with SB aspirations, dude’s gotta throw better than he runs.

  11. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Bergs/Barley, we didn’t go all the way to the top this time, but my son and I did it a couple years ago. Crazy view from up there. I tried to ride my dirtbike to the top of the trail, but halway up the switchbacks the altitude started killing my bike. I ditched it in the bushes and rode my son’s dirtbike and he rode in my buddy’s jeep. Of course when we got to the top, my son’s sandals broke. I gave him my shoes, and walked the mile from the tower to the trailhead barefoot . . .

    Camped at Goose Lake this time. Right on the water. Free, No services but a shitter.
    If I could post pics here, I’d post a pic of that stariway. Dizzying . . .

  12. 12th manNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebs nice post, well put.

    Bullit, beats the heck out of me about the Jets too. Only thing I can come up with is Ryan is good for sound bites and Tebow is such a polarizing figure for a crappy Q

    Barleyfreak, agreed about CK. I hope they push him to pass more in pre season, he has the tools if he can do the mental part he would be a Cam Newton type and with our run game, lethal.

  13. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I’d get more excited about Tolzein with some better competition. But he looks good when he’s in there. And yeah, Tolzein will not survive the taxi squad. He’s the only one eligible. So like I said the battle comes down to JJ and Scotty as to who gets cut.
    Cappy has to make the transition from his pistol offense to a real NFL style one. The passing game at UNR is simplistic at best. 2 second read, run. He does have a great arm, and he is a great runner, but is that enough? He needs to show that he can progress through his reads before rabbiting.
    That being said, the Cam Newton/early Steve Young/Randall Cunningham style of QB may be coming back into vogue, so he’s not going anywhere this year.

  14. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Didn’t see yers, 12th. A near mirror image of what you said.

  15. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Let’s see, CK was 5 of 9. He spiked one ball and had a drop. Easily could’ve been 6 of 8. One long out throw was an extremely difficult pass and he nailed it to AJ Jenkins. His only bad play was a late throw while stepping up into the pocket because of pressure. He was throwing against starters and 2s. What is he supposed to do better?

  16. barleyfreakNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, SY was dangerous early in his career with the threat of his legs. He became that much more dangerous when he started reading D’s better, moving around in the pocket to buy time and beating teams with his arm.
    The key to that was his transition from what you describe Chuck as the 2 second read and then taking off to keeping his head looking down field more as his career progressed. For someone like CK, he faces the same obstacle, and there’s no substitute for game-time practice. He’ll get better, just hard to say how much, and how soon. It is still pretty early in his NFL career.

  17. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    The pass to Jenkins was nice. The rest were short-range dump-offs. Nothing to write home about. Even the drop was a 6 yard out. Yes, I know that this is the offense being installed. Smith didn’t go deep (or even medium) either. That’s the way it is.
    The feeling is more of general one regarding Cappy. If forced to play every day, I think he’d progress much faster. As it is, he’s the backup and won’t get a lot of reps until the decision is forced, or he moves along slowly as Smith’s backup.
    I’m not saying he’s doing anything wrong. He’s in a situation that isn’t very good for him. It could be his dream job if something happens to Alex. Or not.

  18. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    The strange thing is Alex is clearly the best QB on the team for now, but Kappy probably has more trade value.

  19. 12th manNo Gravatar says:

    Berger, you are referencing only that game.

    The defense during camp have been noted to jeer Kap because he runs so often, they consider it cheap yards for the QB when they are practicing.

    This is something widely reported.

    I don’t think anyone is saying he is no good, just not ready. He has great promise and physical gifts beyond the rest of the QB but ready to back up Alex? Need to see more. Tolzien is less gifted but looks more ready to step into a game at this point.

    Skeebs, Alex is a somewhat known commodity and unlikely to make any dramatic improvements. Kap has major upside if he can grasp a pro offense, ergo woth more for his potential.

  20. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Fricking Tolzein may get more than Smith. But that doesn’t matter. Kaepernick has a huge upside. As in Cam Newton upside. Newton was given the keys from the get-go to run an offense suited to his style. Which is a feather in the cap of the Panthers coaching staff.
    Nolan, in his inimitable way, tried forcing Smith to be a drop-back low-risk passer. As did Sing. It certainly wasn’t Smith’s style or game. I like the fact that the Niners showed runs out of the gun, and multi-WR formations that they ran well out of. The hope is to install jumbo formations that they throw deep (or even intermediate passes) out of. Harbaugh is showing a lot of good stuff formation-wise. No-huddle, draws oiut of the gun. runs out of multi-WR sets. I’d still like to see a more aggressive passing attack, but that should come later.

  21. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The elevator broke so the coaches
    were unable to make it to the locker room at halfime on Friday from the pressbox.
    Fangio was asked what he did and he said he had a hot dog, because he had a 12 minute window to get down there and back up and there was no way he could fight through the crowd on the ramps.
    Fangio also made the point it was time for a new stadium. The Stick is falling apart after 50 years of use.

    this is just wrong ! is it just me does this headline sound like there’s some fun to be had !?


  23. robNo Gravatar says:


    very cool , when it comes to butts , the better the view the better it always is i always say !

  24. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    More roster moves today per Sacbee
    “The 49ers have signed not one, but two, tight ends to address their recent shortage at the position. The team today inked both Gijon Robinson, who played at Missouri Western, and Joe Sawyer, who played at Southwest Missouri State, to deals. To make room on the roster, they cut guard Garrett Chisolm.”

    With Dobbs that gives them 7 or 8 TEs. Maybe Dixon should volunteer to play TE?

  25. robNo Gravatar says:

    SKEEBS omg ! we are NOT going to trade copernicus !

  26. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Southwestern Missouri and Missouri Western?
    Breeding grounds for TEs in Western Mo?
    ROB, beaver attacks are no joking matter. My gramma was attacked by a beaver, and it was gruesome. It snuck up quietly one dark night . . .
    Oh nevermind . . .

  27. robNo Gravatar says:

    OMG !

    I love our QB ‘s !

    alex was a spec teams catch or two away from taking us to the superbowl last year !

    copernicus might just be the QB of the future for us imo …

    and tolzein looks like he has a chance to be the best QB on our roster given time !

    omg !

  28. robNo Gravatar says:

    hey BULLIT !

    did you know the niners are barney frank’s favorite team !

    yup they are … and do you know why ???

    because they have soo many big tight ends and wide receivers !

  29. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Plus, he likes Cox!

  30. 12th manNo Gravatar says:

    Rob loves Cox

  31. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    He likes Barney too . . .

  32. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Did Chisolm leave on his trail?

  33. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Being attacked by a beaver is dangerous. If you aren’t familiar with your date, for example a first date, it best to have her douche first.

  34. 12th manNo Gravatar says:

    Can I be Frank?

  35. 12th manNo Gravatar says:

    Rob, does this mean you no longer love Cox???

  36. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:


    Cox is excited every practice. Rob must be “OMG” thrilled.

  37. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebs’ spam filter is getting a little sensitive about Cox I guess. My comment didn’t post.

  38. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Don’t know why that one got spammed, Grump.

  39. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Kappy completed a pass in practice to himself today for a TD!

  40. 12th manNo Gravatar says:

    Was he in the endzone or did he run it in?

    Fangio is impressed with Tolzien, he says “he has that little extra intelligence you want in a QB”

  41. 12th manNo Gravatar says:

    Fangio says he was very impressed by Tolzien in the opener, impressed but not surprised.

    Tolzien got the tongues wagging, good for him. Hope he keeps it up.

  42. 12th manNo Gravatar says:

    I just read it, Kappy ran it in…

  43. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Didn’t Tolzien play in a WCO in Wisconsin?
    Didn’t follow him in College but did read numerous bio’s on QBs leading up to the Draft.
    I recall him having excellent numbers and was always rated highly for accuracy.
    Either way, I think he’s gonna trump Josh for the Roster spot in the end.

  44. 12th manNo Gravatar says:

    I read this about him yesterday:
    Here is a little college history on Tolzien before I give insight from other teams in the league.In 2010, he led the NCAA in completion percentage with 73%. He was 4th nationally in passer rating playing for Wisconsin. He was ahead of, are you ready for this, Collin Kaepernick, Christin Ponder, and Andy Dalton. He beat one of the top ranked defenses in Ohio State at Ohio State. He had 3 incomplete passes against Ohio State. He had 6 incomplete passes on 26 attempts at Iowa. He had 4 incomplete passes against Northwestern. In the Rose bowl against the top defense in the nation TCU, he had a 120 passer rating.He has already played better than the starters in Minn, Arizona, NY Jets, the backup at SF, Cleveland, Tenn, and STL to name a few.Here in Queen Creek Az, the local news joked he could start today in Az. There are a lot of GMs waiting to see him hit the cut wire so they can pick him up. NFL network is high on him also. We might all be wrong, but right now there is hype for him and I think SF should get trade value if he isn’t going to start here.

    I didn’t verify this info.

  45. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    If he’s under Contract and can show to be a better option than CK we’ll have an excellent opportunity to use either as trade bait.
    Alex is on a 3yr deal.
    No big deal to keep Scott and Colin in tow.
    We may have been given a gift by SD last year.
    Good move by Baalke to grab him.
    NFLN is replaying out game at 4ET Tuesday.
    I’m looking forward to seeing it for the 1st time.
    My concerns with Colin are his ability to stand in the pocket and deliver.
    Scott already has that going for him.

  46. winderNo Gravatar says:

    What a great problem to have.

  47. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Maiocco wrote this about Dashon when he analyzed each player’s performance.
    “Dashon Goldson: Started at free safety and played the first 17 snaps. There appeared to be miscommunication the second play of the game when Burton got behind Rogers for a 52-yard gain. Rogers immediately gestured to Goldson, who left the middle of the field exposed when he bit on an underneath route”
    Goldson is doing this way too often and it shows up on film for our opponents to exploit.
    Towards the end of his stay with the Niners Clements would bite on every double move.
    Anyway “the Hawk” has to play Safety like it’s drawn up and not
    look into the backfield and get burned deep.

  48. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Tolzien reminds me of Kolb. Philly fans were all excited about how he did vs 3rd ad 4th string. They wanted him to play and he even did well. I saw his Colt McCoy style of play and knew he wasn’t going to be a good starter in this league. But Kolb is a serviceable back-up. I laughed when AZ gave all that starter money knowing it would set back a division rival of ours.
    It is hard for me to get on the fans that are wetting their pants over Tolzien because I like him too. What gets me is all the pre-season excitement over a guy going against the other teams worst players in scrub time. He has yet to see one defensive scheme. He has only gone against vanilla. It is like getting to play a Mike Nolan defense. (That last sentence was to see if NoFear is reading! Come back NoFear.)
    I haven’t seen enough of Tolzien, and certainly not against quality defensive competition, to know if he is just another Kolb or actually has something to give. I’m still trying to get an opinion of how strong his arm is what throws he can make. I do know the kid has a chance to be good, but I also know not to get too excited at this point.

  49. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    I’d compare him to Shaun Hill. Good game manager, very competent in a WCO style offense, but unproven at throwing the deep ball. He may have more upside than Hill, but only time will tell. Agree that he is a very good backup in the Detmer / Bono / Hill vein, with a shot at something more. We should keep him and continue to work with him. But realistically, it’s crazy to talk about him replacing Alex *this* year at the very least. Or Kaepernick, from what he has shown so far. And JJ is very likely to get cut. It’s Alex or bust for 2012.

  50. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, JJ is the odd man out. Regardless of playing against scrubs, and yes it does matter a little (hello Kory Sheets and Nate Davis), Tolzein is making the throws accurately and doing the right things. That’s all he can do at this point. Until he gets a better shot, or gets to play against better opponents, he’s showing what he has agaisnt inferior foes. He’s the prototypical 3rd string QB that everyone falls in love with. I would like to see him come in as Alex’s replacement to see if he does as well againt 1st/2nd team guys.
    Apparently the highlight of yesterday’s practice was 2 bombs by Smith. One to VD and the other to Moss. Good to know they do this stuff in practice at least.

  51. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I saw Tolzien play plenty in college. He had incredibly flawed mechanics but always made good decisions. His mechanics were so bad he had little arm strength but still threw too hard. Imagine that.
    Lucky for him he got drafted by SD and learned how the throw the ball from one of the best QB technicians of all time, Norv Turner. He has very good mechanics these days, has a nice touch on his throws, and his decisions are still good.
    Unlike Kolb and McCoy, I think he has the requisite arm strength to be a starter in this league, but I haven’t really seen it to be sure. I want to say Bradford does not have the deep arm but I am giving him a pass for now because of a shoulder injury and last year’s other injuries. It will be interesting to see if he can accurately throw a deep ball this year. He’s always been very accurate at the other throws.

    One thing is for sure, I do want to see more of Tolzien because he shows signs of being something good.

  52. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    One post on Kappy. When comparing Tolzien and CK in college it is not very comparable. Tolzien threw form a WCO in college with a good running attack. Any QB will have a good completion mark in that offense. It should be around 70%. CK ran out of a run first offense. Yes, the Pistol is a run first offense. Most of his throws were deeper and therefore with a lower completion percentage. CK had poor mechanics in college until his last year when he cleaned them up a lot. His senior year he was very accurate with a cannon for an arm. He had a tendency to throw too hard at times and I hear from reading practice updates he still does that sometimes. But one thing is noticeable, his mechanics are very good now and he does have much better touch than in college. From watching Kappy in college I can tell you first hand he is a winner. He makes plays with his feet and arm and you are never out of a game with him behind the center. He makes throws and runs that just wow people. The more you see of him, you’ll see what I mean.
    Tolzien does have the potential to be a starter in this league, but Kappy has the potential to be a major star. Think Randall Cunningham but a much better passer. The thing is, potential is just that, potential. Time will tell if one or both emerge but I fee we are lucky to have both.

  53. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    I’d actually like to see Kaep and Tolzien take turns with the 1st stringers – most of them, anyway – in the 4th Exhibition game, just to get a measure of where they are. Obviously Alex and Gore and Moss will be sitting, but you’d get a better idea of where each guy is than you can in the 4th quarter.
    But if either has to play this year for more than finishing up here and there and a spot start game, we could be in trouble. Both still have a lot of learning and polishing to go before they are ready to start every week.
    2012 is still Alex Smith time. After that, we will (yet ONE MORE TIME! LOL) see.

  54. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Ahh, guess I said as much on my blog. Yeah, I’d like to see Tolzein come in after Alex just to gain a sense of what he can do against starters/2nd string rather than the scrubs he’s gone against so far.

    Didn’t Cappy play with/against mostly 1st stringers on Friday?

  55. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Oh, I said it here in my 9:46 post. As long as either come in in the 1st half, I’ll be happy. That’s close enought to the real thing. 3rd/4th quarters is strictly garbage time.

  56. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Yer last line is too funny, Grump. Alex has been on notice for 6 goddamn offseasons. Sonmehow he keeps coming back.

  57. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Why is Alex Smith not a pussy?
    Because, goddamned cats only have NINE lives!!!!!

  58. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Watched the Vikes/9ers replay today.
    Tolzien has a little hitch in his delivery ala PRivers in SD IMO.
    He definitley sees the Field well, (short of missing Rueland for an easy 6 late in the game),and, gets the ball out on time.
    He’s more prepared than CK in terms of pocket awareness too.
    Josh looks like a goner, along with Dixon.
    Big question, what WRs get exposed at the 53 man cut down?
    Palmer and Tyms should be high on the pecking order I think.
    Will they trump a guy like Swain?
    PCox looks like a keeper also. Brock on the bubble?
    We’re looking like a strong Roster in terms of depth now as well.
    Liked what I saw.
    Though sloppy at times, we’ve got a nice mix of young talent in our hands.

  59. robNo Gravatar says:


    nice post ! thx

    imho crabs , manningham and moss will be ok ! our RB’s have me pretty damm excited right now ! imo we are superbowl favs right now !

  60. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    I think Brock sticks as the 5th CB. He isn’t near-term starter material like Culliver, or a very good slot cover guy like Cox, but as your *5TH CB*, he ain’t bad at all.
    We’ve got good people, and we’ve got depth. My only concern in the secondary is Goldson. And that’s not a talent concern, it’s a ‘stop trying to be a hero, Jackass, and just do your job’ concern. As evidenced by his brain fart with Rogers against the Vikes.

  61. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Branch quoted Whitner the other day as being impressed with Tolzien’s awareness as well.
    That, to me, speaks plenty toward his skills against the ‘1s’.
    If he can work against our 1st string D and, make an impression, that’s good enough for me.

  62. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Agreed Grump, Goldson ticks me off as well. That’s precisely the reason I call him a SS playing FS.
    He has no awareness of the passing lanes around him because he’s focusing on the big hit in the hole too much.
    No doubt in my mind that he’s on borrowed time while we either develop someone or, wait for that Ed Reed/TroyP Draft strike.

  63. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    You can almost taste the future when AJ and CK/Tolzien get more work together too.
    AJ has zero pressure right now and having Moss/Manningham to rub off on him is a plus.
    Cartwright can stay, Bakhtiari has a motor I’d be a little concerned if I were Ian too.
    Next April, I’m shopping for a FS and NT early.

  64. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    But, then again…..I’m always shopping for a NT.

  67. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Yes they do Berger –
    Stop the Run –
    Get to the QB –
    We’re doing that very well right now.
    Gotta think about backing up Sopoaga and getting some youth in place beyond RJF.
    Ian looked a little shaky to me but he’s still learning.
    He just seems a little light to me?
    I’d love a Ngata-type 350 pound mauler in there if we can get a shot at one.
