Originally posted by swim4speed:eh, Walsh hit more in practice than some remember/know. He had significant injuries in practice also.
I worry about the things Singletary has done this offseason and preseason. He has done sooooo much that goes against what made the Niners a huge success in the 80's and 90's!
Things that go against Bill Walsh...hitting so much in practice, running the ball so much, big O-linemen, the stupid nutcracker drill that injured Willis, Baas, and Brown., etc.
Singletary keeps talking about needing to get turnovers. Spencer is NOT a ball-hawk! He only gets picks if they fall to him. He is not aggressive. He gives up completions. Why did Singletary choose Spencer? He played against 3's and 4's this preseason!
I really worry about Singletary's old, old school methods and thinking.
As to the style of offense, Singletary has no choice as we learned last year. This OL is NOT a good pass protection line. Nor do we have a QB who can really throw the ball around in such a way as to scare opponents. The WRs are, except Battle and Bruce, young and inexperienced.
What he does have is some big maulers who can run block, and a very good running back.
So he is going to run the ball as much as he can because the talent isn't there to rely on passing.
You have to dance with the one that brought you.
