More evidence that our offensive line is terrible

since snyder took over our o line has been good

disagree
he shut down trent cole completely last game and he was one of the league leader is sacks and then when cole got injured he shut down babbins

But the prior games, he has struggled. So he had one good game with 3 less than mediocre games...

I think they said their DC was their O.C last year. So far he is trash, id be surprised if he lasts past their bye week.

I don't know how you have Samuel, Nnamdi, be #1 in sacks, and have the worst defense.

30th in rush defense, you cant stop the run in this league your f**ked.

their Pass Defense is #10 i think

they are better than us according to NFL Stats

I guess you missed my point: since when does "short sacks" equate to having the worst Pass blocking O-Line. A better measure of the worst pass-block O-Line would be TOTAL sacks and QB hits (and even then, it is a flawed measure). That makes us the 9th worst offensive line with 35 sacks/QB hits. The Rams have 60.

Not saying our O-Line is great. Just saying there are other teams with O-Lines that are worse than ours.

i think the idea is that "short sacks" equate to plays in which the QB had no time to make a play because of immediate pressure, whereas total sacks could result form any number of factors. in which case "short sacks" would be an indication of o-line play. that's the idea, not saying its wrong or right.
There's lots of room for improvement with our OL, no doubt. But, we're 3-1, so when they do jell as a unit, I wonder how good we'll be. I write a column for a website, and the owner's a huge Cowboy fan. But, even he sees a lot of potential in our young OL. We have the right head coach now...who fully understands how important the OL is to everything he wants to do on offense. They'll get it down...but, other than Goodwin (new to JH's system), they're all still pretty young. Snyder's presence at RG will definitely help solidify the right side. The move should've been made last year, with struggling youngster AD. Harbaugh gets it...and that alone is all I need to know the OL will steadily improve. For Niner fans, I'd just echo Joe Montana's thoughts...that we as fans need to show patience with this offense.

With our OL playing so bad the 1st 3 1/2 games it's amazing how we are even 3 -1. What's more amazing is how Alex has handled it so far, with a QBR of 97.7. I'm also on the same boat with you as to wondering how good this offense could be once they Oline gels. I can't wait to see it happen right before our eyes, we got a taste of it last week but I want that taste to last for an entire game. Shoot the rest of the season!
The offensive line seems to be improving each game this year---I can't remember when I could say that before for years.
Well they can run block now, so that's a start give it time we will upgrade the players! about time racheal got benched. Maybe it will get him to work harder in film study because his mental game needs work!

Rachal is the weak link. He tears down Davis as well.
The 9ers couldn't beat the box 8 since noln went 2-0. After that every team used it and our only wins came against teams so bad their fans wore bags on their heads, as did the players. Harbaugh has shown he can beat the box 8 with 1-2 step, snap it and sling it, quick slants and outs. In fact my money is on that play if tampa comes out box 8. Harbaugh eventually gets them to move back and voila, Frank can run thru the lanes again, and the 5-7 steppers come open. This OL is 4 times better than it was against the box 8 against the saints. We are better and with having only 4 or 5 guys to block , our OL does quite well. That hasn't happened in 8 long yrs.
They played EXTREMELY WELL today!!!
This was the high water mark for our OL going back 8 yrs. Note they have improved every game going back to PS. Since season began, they are getting better weekly, and in no small measure to two JH things: they are learning how to play their positons, and playcalling to coach around a weak spot in the OL. Today there was nobody to coach around, in that there were 8 foot holes in the LOS up the middle and I swear they sealed off the R and L sides all day long. Also Snyder pulling has really helped a ton. The new wrinkle is the 3 TEs set. Tampa saw that for umpteen plays before they finally stopped it.

One last item. Concentration . I believe Tampa had 12 penalties for 96 yds or more, the 9ers had 3 penalties for 16 yds. That is one helluva difference, and it shows. I have yet to look at tape, but I believe there was not one missed block all day. Wow!
How well they played wasn't lost on Moose Johnston, who was singing their praises all game. He and Dick Stockton will be calling the Niners-Lions game, too. I keep going back to what Joe Montana said before the season started...that we fans would have to be patient while Harbaugh's players learned the finer points of his WCO. It sure looks like they've turned the corner, and the OL is a huge reason why. They dominated the Bucs the entire game...great to see.
