Why is this thread not the top of the first page from now until next week. The OL is a total train wreck
. Until that changes, this offense CANNOT work.
My first thought is to put a four point suspension seat belt on the end of the bench for Chilo Rachal. Buckle him into it, put a pad lock on the thing and flush the key into the Bay.
Put Kilgore into the RG spot. He looked promising in PS. Better footwork and quicker overall than either Rachal or Snyder. The OL needs more quickness. These bulldozers are stuck in wet concrete. Kilgore can't do any worse and he could be a big improvement
Move Snyder to center and bench Goodwin. I don't see Goodwin as being noticeably better than Snyder but the communication seems to be better with Snyder at center.
I don't know what to do about Staley. He just has not played at all well since his injuries. I don't normally like switching players around during the season but with as much of the season remaining as there is, I would try switching Staley and Davis back to their college positions. It couldn't get any worse. As we learned with Barry Sims, sometimes a guy that struggles on one side does well on the other.
For now, the center and RG spots MUST be MUCH better next week or Colin Kaepernick will be taking over at QB for a broken Alex Smith but he better have his track shoes on because he will be running for his life.
