Originally posted by NCommand:Didn't see much pressure most of the game but we did only have 3 rushers most of the time. Still pissed that 5 years later Brooks is still jumping offsides and making things worse by standing there then. He actually had his backed turned to the play. What if they let them have a free play. You would think him or the coaches would have said something to him. I have brought this up 15 times in the past few years... wish I had his cell # Anyways, he really came up big when it mattered most. He doesn't get that sack it's 2nd and 10 or less (depending on the play) to 3rd and 17. Who knows maybe they tie the game.
Like how Bowman was subbing for Willis (in coverage), I noticed they had Aldon Smith play the entire game (I believe) and even played in place of Brooks at LDE. I like it best when both are on the field at the same time but I wonder if they thought someone inside like McDonald had a better matchup? Anyway, it wasn't very effective it seemed...BUT the good thing that came of it was that Brooks was fresh on the entire last drive and kicked Rodgers ass! Game over...
Left side, strong side!
Edit: and the way we rotated WRs and everybody else (seen Dobbs in a bunch) I am wondering if ignore that we have 2 decent backups in Dobbs and Tukuafu and just go after a pass rushing DE like Justin. You don't really want to take them guys out but it would help prolong their careers and give them breathers making them more effective when they are in. Sidenote: Didn't watch closely but did Justin get pressure much today. Hard to expect him to when he is doubled every play.
