The Morning After the Night Before - 3 Quick Thoughts About the NFC Championship

Monday, January 20, 2014

1. It's on Kaepernick.

Two picks and a lost fumble in the 4th quarter.  Strip away the noise, that's the signal.  Kaepernick lost the game.  Doesn't make him a bad guy; I don't care how he wears his hat, doesn't mean we shouldn't have let Alex Smith go.  Two picks, the fumble.  We don't score in the 4th quarter.  It's Kaepernick's loss.

2. Bowman.  Jeesh.

NaVorro Bowman was our best player this season; his holding onto the fumble after (at least) shredding his knee goes down with Ronnie Lott's cutting off his finger so he could play as an inner circle tough guy move.  Even with our moving down the field for what looked to be a game winning touchdown, it was hard to be fully invested after what happened to that guy.  Probably, the Seattle fans who threw stuff at him as he was being carted off regret that behavior.

3. Seahawks +2.5

Denver's opened up as the favorite; take the points.  Seattle wins straight up. If you can parlay with 12 Years A Slave, feel free to kick a little back my way.
