The defense is overrated.........
they were last night. Played like s**t!!! They were caught flat footed all night. McCoy aint THAT good. Geez. Then we make Kolb look like a premiere NFL QB. So f**king frustrating.
I also find it amazing how some people on here refuse to blame the defense for anything. They'll blame Smith for every little thing, but the D has averaged over 20pts per game. They are soft.
It reminds me of the "Alexecuses" people keep complaining about on here.
They had like 3 second stringers on the oline, and a 3rd string center, and they still seemed to pick up all our blitzes.
Btw did you see that play where the eagles D line knew what our play was, and all shifted left? I can't wait till we go for broke and just start and end the game in the spread..
Until the 49ers can man blocking and begin zone blocking (hit the guy in front of you no matter where he comes from), they will continue to be susceptible to stunts like that.
Man blocking is just another version of Mike Singletary Macho Man football that no longer works in the NFL.
