Sing sounds rigid, but makes a lot of changes

Yes you would, stop lying.

this would be true, but you have a MUCH MUCH MUCH higher chance of getting 14 yards of a pass, than off of a FB dive. and that's why it was a s**tty playcall

Ray Ratto is one of the worst sports writers out there.

I'm not saying that I disagree, per se, or that my opinion is formed from this article. It's formed from an aggregation of all of his articles that I've ever read and not a single one of them has ever been positive. I bet if you find his article when we were 3-0, you'll find only negative writing.

I'd be willing to wager that if we won the Super Bowl in blowout fashion, his next day article would be about some mundane and insignificant shortcoming in the game topped off with a "there's no way they will repeat" statement or possibly even a "worst team to win a Super Bowl" declaration.

Do I think he "hates" the 49ers? Maybe but doubtful. I think he just has that kind of personality. The ones that are always miserable and drag everyone else down with them.

I don't understand this....The Niners threww twice for every run on Sunday and Gore only had 13 carries. Smith threw 32 passes.

The problem is not that the 49ers are running the ball too much. The problem is that they aren't executing the plays.

No.

Totally disagreed. It's not that we are not passing enough, it's that the plays that are being called are not the right ones for our offense.


This... and we are not playing smart. Penalties and sacks have killed good drives. The pass/run ratio is fine. A lot of the play calling is fine. But the penalties and mistakes are whats killing us.

Something you need to look at it is the amount of snaps Smith has had with the 1st team O. For the last 6 weeks hes been running the scout team and hasn't been practicing "our plays". Its going to take a little time for him to get back into full rhythm with the starting O.
are you kidding me? i think nolan eventually pulled every quarterback he ever used.

You think he has 100% complete timing down with all the WR's and knows the playbook inside and out? He is like any other QB 2 weeks into the season...still getting some things ironed out.
So far Singletary has made the right changes when needed. I think he sees what we all see, he just doesn't want to jump the gun. I have confidence he will do the right thing.
Most of the changes work. Smith is better than Hill, The D gave up no TDs to Manning, Vernon is playing better with a captain patch ect.

the changes that need to be made are using a variety of playcalling to set Smith up with the best chance on 3rd down. Not a damn FB counter on 2nd and 20 Talk about setting Smith up for failure.

I don't know who this guy is joking. Even if he busted that for a TD I wouldn't be thinking "man that Jimmy Raye is a genius for that playcall.

Bingo! People don't realize that. We do pass a great amount of the time. But its the plays and WHEN they are called that are the MEHS

I still disagree.

To me, the playcalling hasn't been the problem. Execution of that playcalling has been the problem.

When Chilo Rachal is beaten off the snap and Frank Gore gets drilled in the backfield of Hill/Smith is sacked before he can get set, most of the time the problem isn't the play that was called. The problem was the players not handling their responsibility.

I'm not picking on Rachal because I think he will be a good oplayer in the future, but he is just an example of what I'm saying.

If the plays that are called are run correctly and the players all handle their responsibilities, we would have a very different view of the O.

The Niners O is a work in progress. They have to get to know the O and Raye needs to get to know his players.

Sadly this is the position we've been in for the better part of a decade because we keep changing OCs. Later this year and even next year, we will have alot less complaints about the playcalling because the players will execute the plays much better and the OC will understand his players better.

Its about EXECUTION.
