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.
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.
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.
I get where you are coming from but when the playcalling is as predictable as the 49ers playcalling has been with Raye it gives the defense the upper hand. Raye runs on 1rst down some crazy insane % of time. I believe it was in the high 80percentile. So that screws you over right there on first down right off of the bat. Then on 2nd down it might get a little better, I would say about 50/50 run/pass. usually the run is right up the gut for no to little yardage leaving you with 3rd and long. Obvious passing down, and again giving the defense the upperhand. This is why playcalling is important. When your offense loses the advantage to the defense because the playcalling is as predictable as ours has been you pretty much get screwed and left with 3rd and long.
