I would like to see an effort to get the ball downfield early in the game. For the love of God, we have to throw deep when we see 8 and 9 defenders in the box. After the offense establishes the PASSING GAME and the Colts back up their safeties, then it's Gore's turn to gash them.
If Raye can find the balls to call aggressive plays early in the game, then Smith could have some good stats. If he and Sing keep up with the old school "run to set up the pass" we'll find ourselves behind 28 points before the half. The offensive line simply is NOT good enought to "impose it's will" on the defense when they KNOW what is coming.
I'd love to see the Niners start out in shotgun formation with 4 WRs, ready to ATTACK!!!!! But we'll most likely see the now typical 2 TE, 1 RB set with a very safe short passing route OR a 2yd run.
please Raye, have the courage to call intermediate and deep passes early in the game.........before we have 3 or 4 3-and-outs........and before we're down 21 points........
