John Harbaugh has two weeks to come up with a game plan to stop Colin Kaepernick, but from the way it sounds, he’s already has his finger on it. Having faced Robert Griffin III in the regular season, it gives the Ravens some idea on how to defend the explosive Kaepernick. It’s easier said than done, but the Ravens defensive game plans have already derailed Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Yes, we know they aren’t mobile, but the Ravens know how to get under a quarterbacks skin, and once they accomplish that, they usually get their way. Once thing is for sure is if Kaepernick ventures out of the pocket, he might want to get down fast, or the Ravens will give him their best shot. “We’re going to have to tackle him. We’re going to have to keep him inside of our defense,” Harbaugh said at his press conference today via Michael David Smith of profootballtalk.com. “We’re not going to be able to run past him. He’s fully capable of putting 200 yards on you, just as capable as Frank Gore is or any of their running backs. He’s not just an integral part of their passing game, he’s a huge part of their run game. We’ll have a plan for it. Assignment football is going to be really important for us. Change-ups are going to be important for us. We just have to play well against him.” “We did a pretty good job in that game once we got our feet on the ground against RG3,” Harbaugh said. “They took the first two drives down there but once we had a feel for the offense I thought we did OK. It’s a similar offense, style-wise, but it’s not the same offense by any stretch so it’s hard to compare those two games. Just the way they run the offense, the foundation of the offense is different, it’s not the same base offense, and even the blocking schemes and the read-option stuff is a bit different. And even the style of play of the two quarterbacks, they’re both great in their own right, but they bring different things to the table.”   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
