Offensive post-game analysis (week 3)

Hill pushes the ball when he throws kinda like a pitcher that is aiming his throws instead of letting it whip. Just drives me crazy every time he throws.

He also had 3 dropped balls which can’t happen. .

If you're considering the throw to Davis in during the 1st drive that was far too high and wide, that was not a "drop". That ball was uncatchable.

Just wondering if that's what you were referencing.
The game tonight.


I was impressed by the stadium. I'm glad they closed the roof! It was
much cooler that way. This Texas heat is killer so it was nice to
watch a game at a cool 70 degrees.


- Hill looked horrible. Poor footwork, no heat on the ball,
inaccurate. Just plain s**tty.

- Dallas got away with holding all game.

-The 49ers lack of a passrush worries me. Romo had all day. It was
very frustrating to see it live. Gonna be a long season if that isn't
fixed.

- I didn't understand why the 49ers bothered running a few plays out
of the wildcat formation if they were just going to run it up the
middle. Wasted plays in my opinion.

The 49ers should have taken at least one shot at the endzone before
kicking a fg before halftime. It's preseason so what did we have to
lose???

Nate Davis is an exciting rookie. He got lucky on a few plays (The
dropped int) but does that kid have a cannon arm or what?? The game
was boring until he stepped on the field.

I would like to see Davis get playing time next week with the starting
offense. Give Hill a series or two and then lets see what Davis can do
when he throws to wrs that might actually make the team.

The dallas fans talked way more trash then I ever experienced at the
old stadium. It was nice to see the 49ers win and get the last laugh
on those a*****es.

I recorded the game and the CBS HD looks like crap!
I was suprised how bad hill played I'm hoping it's due to his back and lack of practice this week and hoping he gets healed if that is the case

On a positive note, Singletary didn't look concerned at all. This could be a sign that they coaching staff was playing possum. It's possible they weren't looking to wow anybody...instead just see what the individual talent level is across the board.

We all know that if things had been the total wreck they appeared to be Mike would've gone Bears51 on the sideline...I hope...

I've learned never to give too much credit to the coaching staff for running a "vanilla offense". After the '07 Hostler season, I learned to see things the way they look. Singletary and Raye are not suddenly going to become this high flying passing attack where they air it out like the Cardinals.

No, we won't miss Martz one bit. Remember the Cardinal game last year we should have if Martz weren't such a moron? Taking 30 seconds to call a timeout, not having the right personnel on the field, or how about the Miami game when he didn't have VD, blocking Porter when he had all but relegated VD to a blocking role throughout the season.

I was as happy to see Martz go as I was to see Nolan go, they both suck.

Wasn't Sing the coach for that debacle? I

Doubt it since he's been playing like that all preseason.
I sure hope this passing game steps it up big time when the season starts.
Last night made me a little cynical we'll be any different than last year. And I put the play squarely on McCloughan. We have the same pass rush, RT, and wide receivers as last year. Our big name FA the last couple of years -- Clements may be solid (MAY), but he certainly isn't elite - and isn't he the highest paid CB? Justin Smith deserves a ton of credit for his endless motor, but he can't do it alone. We gave a big contract to Soap last year?

On a positive note:

Nate Davis looks the part of a real NFL QB. Yeah he was playing against 3rd and 4th stringers -- BUT, he didn't get rattled by the pass rush and scramble around nervously looking for receivers. He kept his eyes downfield, stepped up and slid in the pocket and looked like a proficient QB. Thats more than I can say for either Hill or Smith.

MAYBE, maybe it was because Nate was subject to Dallas's first team pass rush heat - and he hasn't been blown up by and NFL hit yet.

But regardles, he looked more like an NFL QB than the others. I'm not saying start him right away, but I would certainly keep and develop him and work him into real games when possible. (Then again, when do the 49ers ever have a big lead to do that. And Nate has only had to learn 1 offense so far. Just wait unless we change OCs again next year.)

Yes. Somehow he escapes criticism for it.

Nate Davis was under heavy pressure. He used his speed to escape from several sacks.

Just to be fair. When the Niners looked the worst was when Dallas was attacking our QBs with 6-7 guys. Did our D even do that once this game?
The 49ers passrushers were laughably bad. Lawson in particular got knocked on his ass all day and never came close to sacking the qb. Looks like more of the same from him. I'm sure he will get injured soon though and some fans will say he was on his way to a ten sack season if not for the injury. I hope Harolson was just rusty from not playing in a game in awhile.

People are pointing fingers of blame at Hill, but the real problem is the OL. That was a bad performance by the first team (although the RT was a 3rd stringer and LG was a 2nd teamer).

Chilo has got to step up his game. Simply not very good yesterday.

It seems Clements has been getting torched all preseason which is not a good sign,Romo lit him up before coming out.They have him playing off the WR when he's a bump-n-run CB,I don't get it.
