but i wonder if they look at past years and try to incorporate plays of past coordinators that worked well
one that comes to mind is the seam route to vernon davis deep downfield....that play worked so well, that defenses have really geared up to stop it, yet im not sure i recall niners even trying it once this year (i know smith overthrew davis deep vs cards, but that didnt look like the play that they used to work so well)
another would be the roll right and throw back left to davis---that has gone for tds in past years (opener vs cards in 1986, and acouple years ago vs seahawks)
wow davis must be old.
but a screen pass, whether it be to davis, walker, gore, hunter, williams, crabtree, ginn hell i don't care. just chip the rusher, let him by and throw it behind him with 2+ blockers in front.
