So the players call the plays?
Question for you......We're you one of the Niners fans screaming last week for the coaching staff to open it up?
"FREE ALEX!" "RUN THE SPREAD!"
Well we did, and this is what we got. Alex Smith with 3 INTs and 2 fumbles.
That may be true but the spread only works if you have a pocket to stand in and throw from. Not to mention Josh "the whiny piece of crap,who isnt' starting for a reason" Morgan dropping passes and deflecting them for INT's.
Look the elite teams in this league KNOW how to get it done up front and until we figure that out, that's just the way it is. Look at the teams who've won games recently: The steelers (good pass blocking team), Giants, Patriots, the Saints right now, the Vikings (and conversely the Packers), and the Miami Dolphins last year. You have to be sound and have DEPTH at the OLINE to be great in this league and that is why we have sucked no matter who else we've added at other positions.
Put another QB back there and unless his name is Manning or Brees (2 guys smart enough to compensate for weaknesses and injuries) than we're gonna be in the same boat.
