So it's been a while and matter of fact, I don't think I'll really put much, if any thought into this post. No editing, no advice from James (yeah, he's the real architect behind me, I'm more of a robot)...just something to toss out there because my mind is racing and I feel like "Tre bein Tre" as Jimmy James would put it.
I said "it's Tuesday and I have a short memory" for a reason. Strangely I'm feeling optimistic, damn-near giddy about the Niners today. What's up with that? I must have forgotten Sunday night, or maybe it's typical "the rest of the story" mindset that tends to come over me/us after we've had a minute to rehash the events.
Anyways more to the point (yeah, there might actually be one...maybe)..."after the jump" I'm going to mindlessly dump some nonsense!
Alex Smith is going to play with more fire, try to make some plays...hopefully he does. I don't know how you change your tendencies in a week but maybe he just has to keep repeating to himself something like:
Big play, Big play, eat it.
What I mean is try to make a play, c'mon! Then if it's not there, run or throw it away or check it down, just be decisive and not afraid to "eat it" too.
So there's one bit of optimism, yeah, I kinda think maybe he'll throw for 300+ yards, 3 TD's and NO TURNOVERS! I know, I'm really crazy (maybe that's why my hands typed "I'm on crack" above?!?)
I'm also hoping that we get to see some diversity of plays and formations. I hope we get to see more of Westbrook and maybe even Dixon too. I know Frank is everything (sigh) but let me pose this to you:
If Alex and the players are playing too "tentative" and "not to lose" and "scared"...what about the coaches being "afraid" to take Frank Gore out of the game?!? Take some shots, put another guy in there, put two of them in there, put 6 of them in there...let's try something!
I also hope to see Dominique Zeigler own some Raider fool DB's on Sunday. Yeah, "who's he?" ZEIGLER BIZZLE!
He's tall, he runs good routes, good attitude, all he does is catch the damn ball! Keep him in the game more and for the love of Pete (who's "Pete" anyways?) THROW HIM THE BALL!
Beyond that I'm hoping the defense get's a memo that tackling is LEGAL in the NFL, maybe give them some twinkies if they do it IN THE OPEN FIELD!
Or, we lose.
