Are we calling two plays in the huddle?

Same thing with Sanchez and the Jets, granted Sanchez is regressing now so I don't know if he is even allowed to audible anymore.

sanchez is ( now was) a product of habing the best offensivle line in the nfl with the best defense he was always a sub par qb

So true, his first year or two, his Oline was nasty. I'm not sure what is going on this year, but it has definitely exposed him.
I love seeing Alex deciding whether to "Let it roll" or "Kill" the play!

So every game this season Alex has yelled "Let it roll, let it roll" and does a rolling motion with his arms. Every time he has done that it has been a run play. One time it was a QB run against the browns when Alex took it himself to the right side. Do you think Harbaugh has Alex do this all season till say a playoff game, and the 9ers run a play action play when they truly need to get a high efficient passing play. I just don't understand why we show our cards pre snap with the "Let it roll" signal all the time.

I was actually wondering the same thing
I think he's calling 2 plays in the huddle, if he switches the play during audible, I think he's yelling "kill kill" or something like that, and i think the rolling motion means to continue with the first play, I could be wrong though

this! let it roll probably means go with the play called and kill kill means go with the other play

I remember the Kill Kill stuff that alex does as well but i never paid attention to see if it was a pass play when he yelled Kill Kill. But most definitely the let it roll plays have 100% been run plays. Its just kinda of a give away but last game still would gain at least 2 yards or more on each "Let it roll" plays

"Smith can dictate his play calls at the line of scrimmage more than in the past. He usually calls two plays in the huddle, and depending on the defense, Smith will yell out, "Let it roll" or circle his fists in front of his chest. That signals to the offense to go with the first play that's called. If he wants to go with the second play, Smith will yell, "Kill, kill" or make a slashing motion with his hand."

Boom. Thread buster
I thought that as well... but then the next time I saw it, it turned out to be a quick pass. I think it is just confirming the first play called in the huddle.

yea, it's just a way to select one of the two or three plays called in the huddle.

it better not be a run every time. That would be retarded.

well if we figure it out, then they are not very good at hiding this from other teams lol, i doubt its as simple as we all think. ( hopefully )

They pass after he does that, I've keyed in on it. But I believe a moderate majority of the plays end up being runs.
