This is my first post on here so bear with me...
I am die hard 49er fan. Die hard fan to me means that although we bleed red and gold we can also be the biggest critics of our respective teams what ever they maybe. So if you want to find some truth about our Niners every week I'm doing a post on how he will win and how we we loose the game. Your not going to hear any sugar coating our weaknesses here ...
Beside the fact that Matt Hass. has been a thorn in side of us fans and the Niners for the past 6 years, I'm giving most of his sucsess to the scheme of there offence. Unlike the Cardinal offensive scheme which is more of a vertical attack with routes going threw the middle of the field working off of each other. Seattle is more of a pure west coast system with short and intermediate and slant routes based on timing and accuracy we all know this... But the problem is this does not play well to the strength of our corners. I know you see time and time again our corners play with an 8-10 yard cushions that will work with the larger receiver that are slow out of there cuts and breaks you can still have time to close on the ball, but these smaller Seattle receivers have good foot work in and out of there breaks if we play with this cushion Hasselback will pick us a part hitch by hitch quick slants by pump fake double move deep ball. We must play physical with these receivers break down the time they have and nock them of there routes from the begining giving our pass rush a chance.I don't think we will have a problem cover John Carelson we have athletic LBs just depends what defense gets called. Now with running game I honestly think we have a chance to be a great run stopping team this year but if we have a weakness it is small slashing running backs.... Julius Jones.....This is were our d-line will lose or win us the game. Since the quick reads and the fast release of the ball that Matt Hass. has i don't think the pass rush will mean much this week if we get a sack it will be from overloading the line with 3 extra men which could be bad for us or getting him on the play action fake . So the D-line will win or lose this game against there run game. Aubrayo Franklin "MUST" demand a double team our at least get a small attention from one of the guards to keep them off Patrick Willis and T. Spikes if they do not Jones will get 4 to 5 yards a carry do to his quickness to the gaps then this sets up the play action wich is also a weakness of ours it opens to much deep and up to over the middle. This game will tell me a lot about were our defense is as a whole working together communicating and most importantly executing, you must execute to stop this Seattle offense.
Offensively last game I was VERY critical of our coaching. And i think that the O-lines "Failure" was more bad play calling then bad play. I mean don't get me wrong they did not play great by any standards but they were not given the chance to succeed. If their defense is run blitzing on first and second down every time because your play calling is so predictable what do you expect. I would love to have a O-Line men that pancake the opposing D-line two at a time with one in each hand but sorry people it ain't happening. How about calling some screen plays Gore is a beast catching the ball out the back field or some sweeps i mean i could have done a better job calling plays ( call me ) Frank Gore excels at finding the gap and exploding to it.. Hes a great inside runner don't get me wrong but calling A - gap runs are taking a way from his talents because his strength actually hurts him in this area, becausewe all no if you call a run play right up the middle Gore is gonna hit that hole no questions asked well if that hole is block up because of a run blitz now you have just taken a way a great talent that gore has, to be calm find the hole and attack explosively. Now Seattle's Defense is every bit athletic as Arizona's maybe not as stout but they are faster so you know that the saw Week 1's tape and they are going to bring some run blitzes on early downs..The offensive coordinator must adjust better this week if not we will lose.(Why cant we run a West coast O.) This in not last years Seahawks by far.
