I nailed it on a few points, but especially on my main point...

I don't think the biggest question is how to stop Kaepernick's running <...> I think the bigger question is how/if the Falcons will score when they need to. ...OUTCOME: Kaepernick 2 rushes 24 yards AND Falcons 0 second-half points including a stopped (near-) final drive with the chance to win the game.

I did miss this one...

All Niners' goodness on offense flows from running first ...OUTCOME: okay, they still had more runs than passes, but they often passed first. This is a good sign for the Niners' offense that they can run or pass in either order depending on what the opposing defense dictates.

It is now official... the Niners' upgraded offense got them over the hump that stopped them last season. Yippie ki-yay!
