    I'm generally a Locker knocker, but he did fine today. He did what we needed. That is all that I ask.

    No, Jim Harbaugh is unbelievable. Kaepernick is/was average.

    Harbaugh can make any QB look good. Kaep actually seems like Locker but in a system that gives him 20 minutes to throw and wide open targets.

    Well no sht dude that's what the 25 teams in the league without top tier QBs are ready for. It's not like accurate, consistent pocket QBs just grow on trees you know...

    No not true at all. We won in spite of him. Without Battle bruising into the endzone and our defense playing absolutely dominantly we would have lost.

    Can we please wait until the end of the year to decide if this guy needs to be here in the future. Seriously you guys amaze me. It was his 12th NFL start against a Dick Labeau coached defense on Heinz field. The #1 reigning defense that hasn't lost a home opener in the last 10 years and like someone else said he had 20 attempts. Give the guy a chance, be happy we got the W, and lets judge him at the end of December when it's warranted.

    Exactly. I've been hard on Locker but today was one of his best days...

    ...and now the fanbase acts like he didn't do good?

    Our fans are extremely weird. I doubt most complaining actually watched. Just looked at the box score.

    It's not great, but for Locker? I was satisfied.

    He threw some on ropes that were perfect too. Granted it's still all on come-backs, but it worked.


    Much more satisfied with Locker today than I am the run game and o-line.

    He wasn't awful and didn't lose us the game, but you have to hit wide open guys if we want to compete.
