You know when Jimmy Raye was in KC, he had the Nigerian Nightmare, and Joe Cool under some of his offenses. -And even before Joe went to KC they were a legit playoff team that focused on a conservative scheme.
It isn't exactly predictability that kills you, it's lack of talent. I really don't understand everybody's fuss cause our system is no different than what the Steelers or Giants run. -Only big difference is that each team has a legit QB that can air the ball down-field with confidence.
-I'm sure if Shaun had the god-gifted talent of throwing a rocket, or if Alex had the ability to throw anywhere but his receiver's shoes we'd be airing it out a ton.
You can blame the Atlanta game on lack of preparation all you want but our receiving core literally just gave up after the first half. Josh Morgan has taken the throne of the old Vernon Davis (i.e. he puts no extra-effort into going after the ball downfield anymore/YAC). This is where Crabtree is going to come in and earn his money. If the kid loves the game as much as people have been saying, he's going to humiliate the rest of our list-less receiving core.
