In a galaxy far far away . . .
Who am I fucking kidding? Anyhow, the die is cast. Colin Kaepernick has been labelled pariah, and Gabby Gabbertson is now the fatted lamb being led to slaughter. Or something like that.
The front office has decided to pin all their suckitude this season upon their harried and harassed QB. While he’s having a shitty time, most QBs in this situation would be hard-pressed to succeed with the problems this offense has. One needs to look no further than last week’s GB-Denver game. 6-0 Aaron Rodgers was harassed and baffled for 60 minutes amid a ferocious pass rush and tight coverage. Rodgers, a perennial best-guy-in-the-league nominee, threw for 77 yards. Yes, 77 yards. Hmmm Think he forgot how to throw that day? No. Pressure can stall out the best of QBs. Kaepernick isn’;t the best, but he certainly isn’t the worst. Certainly better than Gaine Blabert.
But no, we have our intrepid front office pinning this disaster of a season on Harbaugh’s choice of QB back in 2012. Brilliant in its myopic-ness. No RB depth, no open WRs, No consistent pass rush, or pass coverage. Blame the QB.
Got it. Welcome to hell, Jed. if you have any sense, you will shit-can Trent Baalke at season’s end and hire someone who can build the front office from scratch.
