I think the Green Bay game proves one thing...

I agree we have a weak o-line but the loss in on the coaches shoulders. We were clearly outcoached and the players looked surprised as if the Packers were showing something they didnt see on film. Mr. Sing, start hot and go conservative when you have the lead. That is exactly what the Packers did today. You dont start conservative then go hot when you are down by 20 points. Havent you learned that by this time?

Well said, alpha. With a year of head coaching under his belt now, Coach shouldn't be surprised by anything. He needs a top notch OC to have a chance for success...he doesn't have one and it shows. Need some players, too, but there's no substitute for good coaching.

Don't forget about Brian Jennings dominating yet again. You'd think he's a robot except he's actually a higher being.

Last time I checked, every play is either a run or a pass, and you just listed all combinations of run+pass. Whether the drive ends in a punt is on the players.

Would you prefer Kneel, Spike, Fake spike, Field Goal?

QB has never been our problem even when Alex was new. Our O-line has sucked and he has never had weapons to actually catch a ball. The coaching staff is about as creative as a newborn baby. This offense lacks an identity and untill Sing figures this out we are in trouble. I like Sing but I feel he is not the coach we need and his decision on Jimmy Raye was way off the mark. Next years draft should involve 2 first round o-lineman and a free agent at RT. Once the line is set we have a great offense but if Alex never has time we are screwed.
The problems are a many.

1. O-line
2. Play Calling
3. QB
4. Pass rush
5. DB's

Exactly. It's not hard to figure out.

Yeah, if Raye and more importantly, Singletary, don't see how obvious it is that Smith plays better out of the shotgun, then they are both very stubborn or just plain stupid. Second half, 1 pass play under center, interception. Unfortunately, it was deep in Niner territory.
I personally think it's hard to judge Smith under these circumstances....it's a different type of pressure when you're handed the ball and told get us back in the game ...then when the score is close.

It's obvious that the reason Smith does better out of the shotgun is because he has more time to scan the field for receivers. Until we address the OL we need to keep him in the shotgun to give the team a fighting chance to stay in games where our defense obviously is not as stout as it was in the first 5 games of the season.
