OFFICIAL "GOTTA WATCH THE TAPE" thread: coaches film on 49ers sacks (RAVENS GAME

Guys, I've always loved NFL gamepass. It's the best way to watch games if you don't live in the US. AND this year they gave us a VERY spaecial treat: coaches film.

Now, it's still limited to the biggest plays of a game: sacks, TDs, turnovers etc.

So I thought it would be a good idea to share some of these plays with you, starting with the Arizona game. I'll post every sack of that game here, just be patient sice I'm no computer whiz.

1st quarter:

SACK 1

My analysis: This one hapenned around the 7:30 mark on a 2nd and 9. Alex takes a 3 step drop and look left. Crabs runs a slant and VD goes to the flat. Classic WCO. However, the ROLB does a great job of pushing VD while also blocking Alex's throwing lane to Crabs. There are free rushers, but it's a 3-step drop, so the ball was supposed to be released early. Maybe it was a bad read or simply a good play by the Cards.

SACK 2


My analysis: I wasn't gonna post this one here because there was a facemask penalty that nullified it, but I though what the heck: the facemask did not influence the play's development so let's go: It's the very following play. It's a shotgun formation with two receivers to each side of it. 3 of them run deep routes, except for VD (right slot), who runs an intermediate stop route. He's the first read. The coverage is very good, but it seems that Alex could have taken a shot cause VD had the defender block with his body. At worst, VD would have been able to fight and force an incompletion. Don't blame Alex for not trying it, though.

As for the protection, nobody accounted for Adrian Wilson, that came untouched. Apparently, the line thought that only #51 would blitz (and he was picked up by Gore). Impossible to know who is to blame for this one. Scheme sack.

SACK 3:



My analysis: 5:37, 3rd down and 7. Shotgun with 4 receivers. 1 to the right, trips bunch to the left. Alex gets rattled and doesn't see Crabtree get open to his left. Then, he decides to take off to his right. He has Peterson breathing down his neck but from the film it looks like he could have attempted a shovel pass to Kendall Hunter who takes off instead of picking up Peterson.

So, even though there was a problem with blitz pick up, I put this one on Smith.

Rams vs 49ers

SACK 1


My take: Protection problem again. Goodwin simply doesn't block anyone and Alex has a free rusher on his face. Also it seems like VD could have broken into a curl to give Alex a quick option. But this offense does not use option routes so I guess that wasn't possible. Other than that, this play again shows a lack of underneath routes. Alex didn't stand a chance on this one.


SACK 2


My take: Hey, a redzone sack! On this one, Alex holds the ball too long. While there wasn't anyone wide open, it seems like a back-shoulder throw to VD was not out of the question, since the LB had his back turned to the QB.


SACK 3


My take: Staley and A. Davis both get beaten one-on-one. However, Alex could have dumped it off to the RB but it was close. If you look at the scrimmage angle, it looks like Alex wanted to do that but pulled it back because of the rush.

SACK 4


My take. I put this one on Alex. He should have thrown it to VD on the left side. Again, it was possible that the LB would have been able prevent the completion, but that's about the worse that could have happened and it beats the hell out of a sack. That ball has to come out.

NFL Gamepass. The coaches film is only available for a limited number of plays, like I've mentioned..
Sack 2, the WR on the far side was as open as he'll ever be.
For being such a smart QB it sure does Alex a long to decide to throw the football.

Them boys need to make some adjustments or something.
After watching that s**t ive come to the conclusion Alex needs to trust in his arm strength to make a tight throw when being pressured..... instead he's just bouncing around back there.....
Watching this is informative but frustrating at the same time. Receivers and QBs have to be on the same page. Knowing that a blitz is coming and to break off their routes. Alex also needs to take more chances and throw the ball up to a spot and let the receive make a play. Like Steve Young said today Alex needs to throw his receives open more. But that all takes time in a new system.
Great job. Steve Jobs is back.
The second quarter sack:



This one was hard to understand. For one moment it seems like Crabtree is wide open to the left running an out route, but then he takes off another 15 yards only to break out again. I don't know when Alex was supposed to get the ball to him. If it was on the first break, then it's on Alex. If it was on the seond, it's on the protection.

This one was on Goodwin, he was too late on his man.

Looks like it's supposed to be a seven step drop (which explains Crabtree's developing route) but the protection didn't hold up.

Yeah, I think you're right. The scrimmage angle makes that clear. It was on goodwin.
