I would also love to see a more inventive running scheme. More of a mix between draw plays, stretch plays, toss plays, and (Gasp) maybe even some counter plays.
Of course we need a more explosive RB with some power, but that's for a different thread.
I saw the highlights of the SF - GB playoff game. The 49ers destroyed a very good Green Bay team -- in awesome fashion.
How did they do it?
The rookie QB Kaepernick is how. This kid can throw like Manning -- but he can also run the football himself -- like a stud half-back.
He has incredible speed -- he ran for two TDs.
A QB who can pass AND run himself changes the game completely. We saw this also with Griffin III until he was hurt.
I can't help but wonder if the days of the pocket passer (i.e. P Manning) are over. Enter the era of the full bore all out offense -- that forces the other team to defend the entire field.
Denver had no chance to beat a team like SF.
