@RVacchianoNYDN: TE Martellus Bennett says he "messed some s--t up" in his knee on Sunday. He hopes to play against 49ers, but isn't sure. #NYG

Rough, really hope he'll be fine.

We really need him. If we put the Unicorn/Bear combination on the field, we might even neutralize the SF pass rush!

WillisBowmanitis? Happens to teams that are about to play us.

Just kidding, seriously, your injury reports are like a MASH unit

That's why I don't believe what a player says until I see him in pads and on the field. Hope he is ok.

The way his knee bent Sunday made me cringe.
No clue how he even got back on the field. He was visibly in pain and limping. Not good.

Plenty of tweets also claimed Bennett will "without a doubt be ready for Sunday." I wouldn't read too much into it.

I don't know YA. I don't imagine many players, coaches, or teams in general are terrified of Alex Smith in the first place. Healthy or not.

I'd much rather play Alex Smith than Colin Kaepernick! That guy would be a freaking nightmare for our D compared to Alex Smith.

Something I actually agree with you on. +1

That is a ridiculous statement.

Please do explain?

Calling Alex Smith average would be very generous of me. Not saying the guy hasn't improved, because he has. But to think that he has had much at all to do with their recent success is ludicrous. He's literally surrounded by some of the most talented players in the league at almost every position. Think Mark Sanchez 2009 vs Mark Sanchez 2012 for a comparison. It's pretty much the same thing yet reversed.

Colin Kaepernick granted doesn't have the pro experience obviously, but his style of play is something that we simply don't match up well to in recent history.

I think what he's trying to get at is, Kaepernick and Newton are a similar breed of football player and this team handled Newton just fine.

I could be wrong though.........

The idea that Kaepernick is a better QB than Alex Smith at this time is ridiculous. What on earth could you base such a statement on? Other than a few Wildcat plays, Kaepernick has done nothing to show that he is a starting NFL QB.

Do you think that Harbaugh is starting Alex Smith over Kaepernick even though Kaepernick gives them a better chance to win?

The Giants would do cartwheels if Kaepernick started this game.

I disagree about them being too similar, I know what you're saying but Cam plays disciplined and a lot of the stuff he does with his feet is designed and called before the snap. Whereas Kaepernick is a backyard football, broken play play maker kind of QB who also has a heck of an arm. Those are the kinds of players we traditionally have trouble with...Especially when we aren't getting pressure.

Is that what I said or the other guy said? I would
1)Sit down
2) Take a pen and a breather and a piece of paper
3) Re-evaluate.

Eh, you said that you would much rather face Smith than Kaepernick, compared Smith to Mark Sanchez, stated that Smith has had nothing to do with SF's recent success and said that to call him average would be "generous". In light of those statements, to now say that you think Smith is a better QB than Kaepernick makes no sense whatsoever.

Not necessarily, he could be saying that Kaepernick would be a worse matchup for our defense. But I think Smith would play better against the Giants. Think Tony Romo, agile and, as of late, accurate. Cam and Vick, your prototypical running QBs, didn't have ridiculous stat lines against us.

So it would be a worse matchup for us to face a QB (Kaepernick) who is not as good as a QB (Smith) that, according to the poster, is: (1) average at best; (2) is comparable to Mark Sanchez; and (3) has had nothing to do with SF's recent success?

As I said in a prior post the Giants would be absolutely ecstatic if Kaepernick started this game.

Alex Smith is the starter because he's a better QB.

Your response was after I said nothing other than Kaepernick would be a nightmare for our D and I'd rather face Smith than him. Not any of the other stuff. Saying that Alex Smith was not a terribly good QB and giving reasons to why I feel that way has absolutely nothing to do with my initial comment, and was said AFTER you called me first response ridiculous.
You seem to be grasping at straws at this point. At no time did I say Kaepernick was a better QB, I said he would be a nightmare for our defense because we have trouble matching up to his style historically.

I'm grasping at straws? Eh, ok.

Let me put my explanation is simpler terms for you. Your statement that Kaepernick would be a "nightmare" for our defense is ridiculous.

Is that a good enough explanation for you?

Sure, that's fine with me, it's your opinion.

In my opinion a broken play scrambling backyard QB like Kaepernick would be a nightmare for our D, especially when we can't get pressure. That's all I said, not that he's beetter.
