Were the other WRs open vs the Colts like everyone says? (1st Half only)

I wanted to find out. I didn't have too much time so I started just with the 1st half.

Item #1

49ers first drive down 7-0

Q1 10:37 2nd and 3


Before: 2 WR formation #81 and #10 left and right respectively, 6 yard cushion on #10, press man on #81




After: At the snap #28, who is guarding #10, backpedals. #10 runs straight up, reduces his cushion and stops - he still has a gap of 3 yards. Pass is thrown way behind him





Result: Incomplete and punt after third down failure. Three and out

Item #2

49ers third drive 7-7

Q1 1:47 3rd and 4


Before: #10 lined up on the far left with 5 yards of separation, the #23 is actually moving backwards as the ball is snapped.


After: #10 is near the sideline with at least 7 yards of separation from #23. #7 just has to be accurate on the run.



Result: Incomplete and 3 and out.

Item #3

Q2 12:01 7-7 3rd &7



Before: #11 has a 10 yard cushion



After: #11 has 5 yards separation at this point and he would be even more wide open if he just stays in the space.



Result: Dropped pass. Drive was really a three and out due to a false start on 2nd and 7


Item #3

Q2 4:25 2nd&9 Down 10-7



Before: Not much separation. #89 is in the slot.




After: #89 running horziontally to #7 right. Perfect passing lane to #89. Instead the ball goes to #81 with three defenders converging on the ball.



Result: Incomplete. 2 plays later 49ers punt.
