Whats up with our pass rush lately we haven't been getting to the QB at all. Im kind of worried that our D line is getting tired.

only sending 4 guys on a regular basis.

I was bummed with no shut-out. With the way the defense played, a "0" for the opponent would have been a nice statement. But darn, Rogers lets an INT go right through his hands and land in Fitz's arms for a TD. That would have been six takeaways. A game of inches!!

I think Alex Smith looked WAY more comfortable running the offense and even improvising a bit to make plays -- a la that "blind" throw to Kyle Williams for the TD. Then again, he threw the INT in the end zone also -- which brought him back down to earth a bit. LOL. By the way, on that INT, Staley was down field blocking, pretty sure that would have been called back with an illegal man downfield anyway. (?)

Going off of memory, but I think staley was eligible on that play. He was also kind of hiding the lb, but that's from the cameras perspective. Oh well, good of alex to get his bad throws out of the way.

Saving it for the playoffs.

We havent blitzed much all season but our guys were just beating guys. The past 3 games we only have 4 sacks and one was because the QB dropped the ball.

It's easier to beat teams early when the OL hasn't gotten a lot of game time reps. Add that RayMac probably isn't 100%, and we still don't use Aldon a lot. No point in doing anything exotic if it isn't needed. I have a feeling we may see some new stuff this week and probably against Pitt.

You beat me to it, was just going to ask that too. He was right what would he be mad about? other than losing. Not to mention all the annoying blocked field goals. It's not like we blew them up.

We demolished them in every aspect of the game. What the hell are you talking about?

Seriously. Yesterday was an embarrassing game for the Cards, they had their asses handed to them!!! We may have only been up 9-0 at the half, but 9 points would've been a miracle for them the way we were playing.

Some peoples concept of demolish are different. We had an opportunity to put away the cards earlier that would have let some of the younger talent have valuable playing time, like Dobbs, Kaep or Tolzein, our OL, etc. that would have allowed players to also rest since we have a short work week. Only Gore was rested so that Dixon could play, they kept Alex in there just in case, that means we didn't demolish them in my book, yes we dominated in TOP and other categories but the score doesn't reflect the stats. I don't want a Morgan like incident with any of our players if possible. We are 9-1, but with 6 weeks to go, I rather they put things bed early and avoid those unnecessary issues.
The ball was wet.
Grass was wet.

We didnt' really blitz, yet and still the D was Tenacious.

Please don't tell me that 1 tackle was recorded when he pushed Vernon out of bounds!
It was 23-0 until late in the 4th. That's our version of a blowout until we get our sh*t together in the passing game.
How many opponents have managed to get deep on our DBs? Even the completions in the NYG game were well covered. That is why there is less blitzing...better coverage. Four guys are stuffing the run and putting pressure on the QB while LBs are dropping and helping in the middle. So far it's been very successful. I'd love to see a blitz more often but can't complain about wins!
