According to Kim Koyle of CBS 5, Singletary told her in the pre-game meetings that we have been and are going to keep the offense and defense very vanilla all preseason and aren't going to show our hand. I really hope thats the truth and that we have a better pass rush and passing game.
I have to tend to believe that it true due to the lack of play action's(which Raye's offense is notorious for) and the lack of stunts and blitz's by the defense. If it's not the truth we will have another frustrating year IMO.
If you listen to the halftime interview she states that and Sing does confirm it but hopefully it's just not being used as an excuse. Just wondering if anyone else caught that and if not what do you think?
I think we have kept it vanilla, but that could be the homer in me...
I would do the same thing.
What's the point of exposing your tendencies in meaningless football games?
It's risk versus reward. You don't display ALL your tendecies, but you DO use the bulk of your playbook if you can. This way the players are acclimated to the playbook before the season starts. Nothing like going into the season and not use a good bunch of plays and then have to get the team off the ball on time having to remember "Right 85 Crosspower trap blue fade" (possibly a Vernon Davis dump off play) or some such intricate play when they haven't used it except in training camp. Ya git me?
It's kinda like running through plays one time in practice, for better or worse and then moving on to the next one. Nobody is going to remember it well come game day.
And no the play that I lined out doesn't exist. If it does I expect to field alot of calls asking me where I got my hands on the playbook.
