some is the OL's fault some is Coffee's fault, some is the game plans fault (no a rookie RB shouldn't need a FB let's just put 2 TE's out there all game long) Gore's back vs. Houston and hopefully our OL will figure things out and Crabtree can get some work.
I was at the game today sitting almost directly behind the niners near the endzone in the upper deck as they were struggling to go back and fourth.
There were almost NO holes or lanes for Coffee to run. Very dissapointing.
There were several plays where the commentators pointed out huge holes that Coffee missed.
Remember that report that came out this week that talked about how Jimmy Raye yelled at Glen Coffee for dancing around in training camp and trying to break everything to the outside. Ever since then, Glen Coffee just runs downhill INTO tacklers instead of even attempting to run away from them.
Running backs need to have improvisation. If the hole is stuffed, dammit FIND ANOTHER HOLE. Don't just give up and run into the damn tackles.
That's possible...its also possible that Coffee has poor vision.
isn't that what we said about robinson?
