If I were Kaep's agent, I would tell him to sit out until he got paid. He deserves at least a Romo size contract. Even Flacco got $120 mill. Kaep almost took the Niner's to two straight Superbowls. He was only paid something like $700k this year.

But I don't think he would sit out. He will go to camp on time and Niners will have to deal with paying him following next seasom. The roster will then take a definite hit. I see the window at one more year with the way this team sits now, at this strength. With NFL's hard cap, the team's talent will start to diminish.

My bad. You're right about the subsequent play. If SF gained possession after the strip by Bowman, SF has the ball and there's no fumble but perhaps a different result. Bottom line, is that SF just made too many mistakes and the Hawks capitalized on them. Oh well . . .

Exactly. All the tv pundits were ready to slam the call Monday. But the following play killed the argument that it affected the outcome of the game. Either way the rule will be changed in the off season.

Saw this coming, no more cheap quarterback.

Kaep wants to get paid.

Seahawks will go through this after next season with Wilson.

FWIW, I "like" Kaep" but I don't think he has what it takes to be a "winner." At least not yet and he's already squandered 2 "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunities in just 2 years. Who knows how many more chances like that will come up?

If he had helped the team win the SB last year and gotten to the SB this year, the Niners probably would have paid him the $18.2M w/o thinking BUT, since he didn't, I don't think he's worth that kind of $ and the Niners probably will play "chicken" w/him until they get it down to a more reasonable number (or at least I hope that's what they'll do).

We'll see . . .

If they are smart, they make him play his final year of his rookie contract next season. Then after next season slap the franchise tag on him. That would give the niners two more season to evaluate him. His numbers weren't that great last year. Question is what will his agent tell him to do, will he sit out and try to get paid.

yea it's definitely a fishy story. This isn't good, considering cap wants a big money contract, however.

Im gonna be honest, Niners need a new QB. Defense is mediocre but still developing as the season progresses, Offense has sooooo much potential but coaching staff and QB are making all the mistakes to run it efficiently.

Not a Niner fan here but at best they will make the wildcard this yr (hopefully)
Potential is there to grow but it will take lots of time for Kaep to become an elite QB

Seattle is going to repeat this yr. GO Hawks! 12th man!

Have they renamed the team the Santa Clara Forty Niners?

FWIW, I'm a lifelong SAN FRANCSCO Forty Niners fan -- all the way back to YA Tittle at Kezar Stadium -- and agree (in part) w/BigBoi above.

I'm not sure what's "wrong" with Kap but the coaches have apparently tried to make him into a pocket quarterback, which he's NOT, and this has compromised the play making spontaneity which apparently was the main reason Harbaugh went w/him over Alex Smith in the 1st place.

Given his performance this year to date, it seems like he just takes too long to assess coverages and to throw the ball to open receivers, which often leaves him w/no choice but to run BUT, by the time he figures that out, the defense has flushed him out of the pocket and/or sacked him. And, let's not talk about his poor clock management and his frequent and/or unnecessary time out calls.

Not sure that Kap is the only reason why the offense has sputtered but to have to rely on 5 field goals (2 longer than 50 yards) to beat the Chiefs is pretty pathetic. Without Dawson, the Niners would have lost the game and, if the Chiefs didn't have 12 men on the field, the Chiefs might have had enough time to win the game in the end despite a possible 6th.

I wouldn't call the defense "mediocre" but they clearly are NOT as effective as they have been in the past. The loss of Navarro Bowman and Aldon Smith and the inability to find anyone to fill their positions are at least one obvious reason for this.

Given these circumstances, I don't think the Niners have any chance to beat Seattle or the Cards to win the division and, if they continue to play the way they have been playing, they will be "lucky" to secure a wildcard spot this year.

The glory for winning and the responsibility for losing falls on the coach.

So, perhaps this is the reason why there are rumors of player dissension and unhappiness w/Harbaugh. Winning will solve everything but I don't think that there will much more of that for the Niners this season unless something dramatic happens to improve both their offense and defense.

With so many key defensive players out, their best strategy for this game might be to keep Peyton Manning on the sideline. That means the ground game and time of possession. Otherwise, they may need to go into shootout mode which is not something this team is really built to do.
