im saying the situation now being what it is i think sf is in bad shape going into the playoffs.
doubts at quarterback direction,
1.> Key injuries= ALL teams at this point in the Season are just a fact of life ,Who's @ fault?, Harbaugh's, he should have his backups tuned and ready to go in an instant's notice....Pete seems to be able to shag out players to come in and put up a decent fight, enough so that the drop off isn't a cliff.
2.> scheme exposure= Harbaugh going to the well too many times, giving the competition a good indicator.
3.> Doubts @ Quarterback direction= poor preparation for getting the O-line up to snuff on how to handle Defenses that are looking in the direction of your scrambling Quarterback....Pete had Russell on a shortend leash until he could acclimate him to Bevels schemes, and tying in with Cables O-line.
Once Wilson showed Pete that he could thrive while under pressure, and slip Defenses, Pete got rid of that tether.
Kaepernick isn't quite as adept at sorting out NFL Defensive schemes as Wilson, but I believe Wilsons height forced him to adapt and speed-read his way to succeeding, where others like Kaepernick have been more naturally dependant on their size to succeed.
RGIII (like Cam Newton) has been using it for several years and he too is trusting his athleticism and size to keep him in contention.
