Golden Nuggets: Shorter Play calls

Thursday, August 13th, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Faithful. It is no secret that the team has been working hard to fix some of the play calling issues that have plagued the team over the past few seasons. We have heard of a few ways that the team is trying to fix the issues such as having Kaepernick calling the plays in the huddle to simulate gameday situations, and having the calls go from Chryst to Logan, to Kap. However, Chryst spoke briefly today about how the team has changed their terminology to really simplify the calls.

Chryst compared the changes to the play calls to the way Twitter allows only 140 characters. His theory is that shorter calls will get the team out of the huddle faster. It is hard to argue with that. The fact that Chryst and Kaepernick have worked together the past few years and experienced the play calling issues first hand definitely gives them the insight they need to make changes for the better.

Their goal is to break the huddle and get to the line of scrimmage with 22 seconds on the play clock. This will give Kaepernick more time to see what the defense is doing and make adjustments from there. We should get a sneak peak into the new fast-paced offense this Saturday. I'm looking forward to it.
