A thinly veiled complaint from #49ers QB Colin Kaepernick on the #Seahawks physical secondary? ...
Today, RB Frank Gore said Seattle can stack the box with eight defenders because it has such good cornerbacks. Kaepernick was later asked if the Seahawks’ top-notch secondary allowed them to “get away” with gearing up for the run:
“I think they get away with a lot of things on defense, but I think the biggest thing is we have to go out and execute,” Kaepernick said. “It’s not really something they did, it’s what we didn’t do.”
Last year, Jim Harbaugh complained about what he deemed to be too-physical play by Seattle’s cornerbacks. On Monday, though, he only complimented the play of Richard Sherman, who held Anquan Boldin to one seven-yard catch Sunday night.
“He did a very good job,” Harbaugh said. “The coverage was tight. He’s an excellent player.”
