Frank Gore Thread

I remember a lot people saying that Kaep's inexperience would be our downfall. I know we had a QB on the roster that has been in these types of situations and came through in the clutch. Ugh, those guys were right!
The offense scored a grand total of 6 points against the Ravens with Alex Smith running it. The offense scored 29 points against the Ravens with Colin Kaepernick running it. What you're implying is that Alex Smith could have brought the Niners back from 22 points down against the same team. What makes you think the guy who got six points could have done better than the guy who got 29 points?

Talk to Sugar Rush about that. If he wants to keep posting b***hy little innuendos about how everything would have turned out right if Alex Smith was in there, you should expect some of us to respond with reasonable arguments about why that's b.s. In absence of Sugar Rush's posts, I'd have nothing to say on the matter.
Baltimore was horribly offsides. Gore should have taken the outside guy, regardless. He was going to reach the QB sooner. CK could have been shiftier. Do a pump fake, get the defender off his feet. Tenth start, whaddya want....
The thing that irratated me about the 2 pt attempt was it seemed Kap just threw it and gave up on the play when Reed came free.

Throw it and at least give your guy a chance, even if its a pick the play is dead right there so no worries about that. He just seemed to rifle past everybody and nobody had a chance at it.

Tenth start, it's okay.
His job is to block inside out. First man through C to TE. Not TE- C.
he did, but s**t happens. Gore has been solid throughout his career.
Gore had a great game. He rushed for more than 100 yards against the Baltimore Ravens for cryin out loud. A couple times, he faked Ray Lewis out of his shoes.
You can only block one guy at a time, the out side guy, the one Gore let go was "farthest" from Kaep, therefore Gore made the right block, the over load look should have been caught, by Kaep, or Goodwin pre snapThat way an extra protector could be motioned over, or Moss would cut his route short and take a quick out. There was a breakdown of some kind there, but Frank got the right guy.
if u wanna get technical, CK should've read the obvious blitz and adjusted accordingly.

No telling what would've happened so it's 50/50.

There was a point brought up about Kaep not being able to throw fades and it seamed proper to bring up his inexperience with reading defenses in goal line sitautions because I felt that was a more glaring problem than his ability to throw fades. Do we not have a QB on the roster that has experienced this and come through in those situations?

This, if Frank had taken the out side man, that pass doesn't get off, the extra half step the out side rusher has to take was all the difference, something else when wrong on that play.
Rolling that film back and forth a bunch, I see unoccupied blockers in the middle of the line, Goodwin sets the O-line , and if had shifted blocking assignments, so that Staley picked up the inside man, Frank could have taken the out side man, watch and see that Boone ends up with no one to block. He should have called , louie, larry, of last, or what ever the line call to shift left.

Maybe he did, and Moss didn't cut underneath...who knows? All I know is we lost a game that should not have been close! We played less than one half of good football, and still had a chance to win, if we had not sucked dirty balls in the first 35 minutes of play we win in a route, we failed to execute, we lost simple, if you aren't ready to play 60 minutes of the very best football in the world you will never win a super bowl! f**k the refes, f**k this block, f**k that call, WE DID NOT EXECUTE we weren't beaten, we lost. No way Baltimore stays with us when we execute, if we played best of 7 we win 5! But it aint baseball, we got one shot and we f**ked it up

This was an alarming trend in the RZ. Unblocked defenders. All the more reason we shouldn't have gone so spread in those situations.

Thats the thing that upset me as well. Why not go with what got us through the season. I would have expected Miller or Walker back there also to pick up a blitz and give the Ravens a thought that we might run.

Yeah I would have gone spread and motion. Even 3 wide with Crabs on the fade out and Walker in a underneath route.
