3 Types of Football in the NFL

Not to mention cut blocks
First let me say I agree with your post on the 3 types of teams.

And while I agree this team needs a few more weeks for the rookie OL to get the flow of things, I think there is a basic concern with the coaching of the offense they want to run.

No matter the type of system you run, the coachs have to game plan/scheme for each team differently. If you don't, your players are at a dissadvantage!

In our case, we want to impose our will on other teams, but if they know that then the can game plan to stop us (8 in the box - to stop Gore on 1st and 2nd up the middle).

Also, when is the last time after looking like dirt in the 1st have, that the coachs made halftime adjustments that put us in a position to win?

About last week's game, I like I've said in other post, the TEAM played very vanilla. That game wasn't prepared for, or circled on the schedule since training camp like this MNF home opener vs. last year's champs. Believe me, the Hawks wanted that game more than we did. Watch how the Hawks will ride high, then fall during the middle of the season.

About the adjustment thing, we have to judge that this week, just because of what I stated above.

What I'm attempting to do is wake up some of you ESPN followers. Wishing your team was like this or like that, or whoever ESPN is selling. If this doesn't apply to you, then don't be offended. Only the offended will respond in defense.

In today's NFL, there are 3 types of football. There is the Smash-Mouth type. It's designed to run to open up the play action pass or deep pass. Which you need big powerful physical o-lineman, a mobile Qb that can sell the play action, MORE than 1 HB on your team that REALLY contributes, a TE that we have, and at least one real big speedster WR that catches everything(which what we don't have) along with Wr's that can catch, block, and run great routes to run this type. Low Risk, Low Reward. BUT has a GREAT Defense!

Then there is the Spread. These expensive intelligent lineman have quick feet, but they are a smaller type o-line, but their quickness allows the QB to have up to 5 seconds to throw the ball and allow them to run the draw effectively. You need 'a great decision maker type' QB that will stay in the pocket and throw the very accurate pass. The HB doesn't need to be the top 5 in rushing, but can be a threat out the backfield. The Wr's(plural) all need to be vary similar in their abilities. The TE needs to be a better pass catcher than a blocker. High Risk, High Reward. this team has small, but fast Defense, that you can run on, but difficult to pass against because usually their offense is usually up 14 pts. So they know your trying to pass.

Then there is the 'West Coast', which is based on a accurate, 'the ability to buy time type' Qb, both HB and FB are good runners and great pass catcher's, the with the TE and WR's being great route runners. BUT THE O-LINE ARE 'Tweeners'(Lineman that have quick feet, are a little over 300lbs, but play physical like they are 330lbs). They are hard to come by. They are usually very intelligent, and physical. Medium Risk, Medium Reward. This defense is usually balanced. When they have 3 elite players(1 d-lineman, 1 linebacker, 1 corner) on Defense with serviceable players surrounding them, then they play very well.

NOW, with all that said, a defense has to compliment the offense. What wins playoff games, AND Championships consistently? Defense.

In the playoffs and super bowl, you need to be able to run the ball when you want and need to, pass the ball when you need to, and stop the run with a stout Defense...ask the Colts how many times they have been to the playoffs vs. rings. Oh and NOLA will not win another ring for a long time.

The 49ers direction of a complete 'Smash-Mouth' football team is in the making. A.Simth in THIS offensive personnel, with our type of lineman, with our very good HB's, with our very good TE's, with our Wr's(missing that true #1 WR), and with our very good Defense, he is better served at the play-action than the spread when throwing the ball. A.Smith is making the adjustments. BUT no way in hell do we start all over with the depth of this team. NOW in our 12 formation, we do create mismatches when we spread the formation, but our WR's are not the traditional fast, and quick route runners for the spread.

When the o-line gels completely before the bye-week, we hope to see AS sidestep rushers, step up into the pocket, and throw the ball. That's the kind of QB I want, not a QB who can ONLY thrive in the spread offense.

Is that what you want? Many of you have been pleading for the 'Spread offense' and do not understand we don't have the personnel for that. We didn't spend 50% our of salary on our QB and O-line. Did you see the one preseason game where Indy's 2nd string Qb played? Do you want that?

JUST BE PATIENT FANS.

Good post..I'm interested in what you think of our game planning on both sides of the ball, the play calling and in game adjustments?

Good post..I'm interested in what you think of our game planning on both sides of the ball, the play calling and in game adjustments?

Our focus on defense, to me is not get beat by the screens and our defense has to put be very physical on Brees. I mean really try to abuse Brees. Manusky is very excited about getting his defense to perform like they did last year vs. Minn and Indy...more like Indy. I'm telling you this, you will see our db's be more physical at the line of scrimmage, most likely when nobody is in the back field blocking for Brees. We will create turnovers from hits more than ints, unless they are tip balls. We will not jump routes, you watch. About adjustments, when they see our coverage playing to the screens, then they will run those crossing and corner routes. Hopefully by then we've rattled Brees and he's off by then. No body is superman. You watch P.Willis to have 3 sacks on Brees from running up the gut, just like in the preseason.

On offense, we will see all that talk in TC about the down field plays Alex was throwing. You'll see a balance and more creative runs for Gore with the Big Mike pulling. We have to remember, Bass is basically a rookie playing center this year. Heitmann getting hurt, hurt us so far. But we will have more creative formations shown and Alex will get the ball to them, because he will be excited about the "explosive plays". NOLA is not as great as everybody thinks. They can get scored on, and they can get ran on by a great running team. All 3 of our backs will see the field, and not do to injury. NOLA won't know what hit them. They will just know that got hit in the mouth!!!!! lol...

But foreal, NOLA is not as great as projected. They've been licking their chops all week too, but we have since training camp, and we just beat ourselves last week.

The ball will spread around our offense to guys like Zeig and Walker, and Morgan which will do well. Crabs has a lot to prove. He's getting talked about nationally, and his daddy Primetime don't like that. Our o-line just has to protect AS, because they are coming after him, like they do all qb's(high risk, high reward). When NOLA lines around the line of scrimmage on 2nd and 8 and their standing, I hope that's when we run and we are in the 12 formation. The game has to be won with our o-line playing above their ability. TEAMS only play like that on MNF. What does NOLA have to prove...

I agree with what you're saying. I still feel it'll boil down to this...

Offensive Game planning : Raye vs Sean Payton = advantage Saints.
Defensive Game planning : Manusky vs G. Williams = tie.

The jury is still out on the 49ers special teams. That might be the deciding factor.
The offense in its' general makeup in terms of personnel has no real identity.

As far as whether or not they are suited to the spread....they are. Smith was a Spread QB under Meyer in Utah, and was most successful operating out of a shotgun. Crabtree as a receiver played two years at TT in a spread, and again was highly productive. Morgan started as receiver in an option/spread type offense it VT. The list goes on.

They are wannabe "smash-mouth"....but they lack the balls, talent and the brute strength to execute that consistently.

So they do better in spread situations.
Three types of NFL Football

1. Teams that definitely know th west coast offense

2. Teams that think they know west coast offense

3. Teams that wish they know west coast offense

I really believe these are the three types of NFL football. Teams that say we run smash mouth football usually get spanked in the mouth - see 49ers. These teams don't really have an offense.

Also, teams that think they know west coast offense usually don't make the playoffs, like the spread offense. You spread people around, then they get tired as the season goes, and they start losing games later in the year and ended up missing the playoffs!

Then there's the real west coast offense teams, every year they are contenders! You know these teams are, right?

Gotta hope our CB's jam at the LOS that will help our D-line out a bit for sure and disrupt any timing patterns. Bree's and his receiving core are masters in that area...Plus we need our Safeties to come up big both in the run support and in helping out the CB's....As long as Manusky adapts to the game and keeps the D playing in front of them I feel our D can handle the Saints..not gonna b easy tho but nothing in the NFL is....
Now our O,that's a different story...GAME-PLAN GAME-PLAN GAME-PLAN...not just run up the middle. They need to create mis-matches mis-directions, put players in motion, UTILIZE our offense weapons to the fullest and to their STRENGTHS. Game time adjustments that benefit our team .Last Sunday we stopped using walker...don't no why???? There's a bunch more that can be added, bottom line we need to play smart football anything less and the Saints will eat us up!!!
I know we can beat the Saints...I have no doubts...Stay faithful!!!
