They Have Arrived As Expected

In other articles I have certainly highlighted the importance of the quarterback. Well, it needs to be discussed again. In particular, the intelligence necessary to execute the most pressure position in sports. Highlighting, this ultra intelligent group of quarterbacks is with out question Peyton Manning. As great as Peyton Manning has played, one could strongly argue that Russell Wilson is ascending at a pace few NFL executives ever believed.

The Seattle Seahawks made a very calculated decision in drafting Wilson. They clearly did their homework. Wilson maintains the unique ability to not only pick apart defenses, but manipulate them. His presence in the huddle inspires his teammates. With his leadership qualities and physical attributes Russell Wilson has the Seahawks soaring. While, this is all true, can they win it all?

Yes! I am certainly buying the Seahawks, for a certain price. But I am buying 49ers for any price. San Francisco is oddly under the radar.  While the Seahawks have been the talk of the town, the 49ers are certainly building momentum. They are just using this current Seahawks media hype as bulletin material. Lets not forget how the 49ers went to the Superbowl last year. Most importantly they understand when and how to become ultra focused and prepared to make a run.

Luckily for this franchise it got back many notable stars. Both Aldon Smith and Michael Crabtree are difference makers on the field. In the realm of offense, the addition of Crabtree will increase the play of Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick has been playing well and will only continue to be a more efficient passer in the pocket with the versatility of Crabtree. Crabtree has the ability to separate from defensive backs, a skill the 49ers were lacking.

This new found capability will completely effect defenses. With Crabtrees’ big play ability defenses will now have to play a deeper safety, thusly opening up the run game. Now we also all know that the 49ers are very difficult to beat when the run effectively. When the running game is in full effect, the 49ers will again reach the Superbowl.
