WCO Coming Back? Could It Be???

Not sure if someone already considered this angle... Is it possible that the "powers that be" are a little unhappy with the way the offense built around Smith has been performing. Maybe, just maybe, the signing of Carr is an insurance policy so the organization can go back to a more QB-friendly situation... and quickly.

It takes a long time to establish an offense - if you don't have a QB to build it around. We've heard that our O-Coord is really good at building an Offense around his QBs. I have a sneaky suspicion that we will see a lot of West Coast type plays worked into our Offense this season.

The two systems aren't "mutually exclusive. Besides naming conventions, we can easily work many/most WCO plays into our current offense. This would help Alex too, but I think it's geared towards our running game, and Carr...

Remember - Carr is a WCO QB. He was drafted as such. The Houston team he played with tried hard to get it working - but they were an expansion team with no talent around him. They finally got a RB a couple of seasons ago, but by that time his confidence was gone in the organization and the talent around him, and perhaps himself.

I see his signing as similar to the Steve Young signing (not saying he's as good as Young), but, of course, there isn't a HOFer in front of him. Regardless, I think this is a good move.

Would love to see the WCO back...!!!
F*ck David Carr!

He sucks, he's always sucked, and he always will suck. He will never ever start for this team.

F*CK!!!!!

It's no good you holding back and just letting out the occasional hint. Say what you really think. We want to know.

Okay...so Carr means the WCO is coming back despite all other evidence to the contrary:

1. Carr is being brought in because his arm and skills are more like Smith's in being better suited to thrown the ball down the field.

2. Carr is replacing Hill, who is better suited for a WCO QB.

3. If they wanted to go to a WCO, wouldn't they bring in a WCO OC?

4. They're still using the digit system. Wouldn't they change to WCO language?

5. Would it be better to have your offense geared for your starting QB or the back-up? The digit system with more medium to long passes works best for Smith and that's what they're going to run next year.

The only way the 49ers become a WCO team again at this point is if they backslide now instead of taking the next step forward, Singletary and the coaching staff gets fired and they start over (again) with a new HC and OC who are WCO guys.
Flame it.

Wait we are going to blend the WCO and digit system ?

This thread title should be renamed to Jim Hostler coming back to be the 49ers OC yet again ?
