I was going to post this in marvins thoughts after thread but since ninefan56 asked here is what i have.
Just doing my running sack total...
Week 1: Joe Staley 2.5, A. Davis .5, Miller 1 = 4
Week 2: L. Davis 1, Iupati 1, V. Davis 1 = 3
Week 3: Alex Smith 1, Joe Staley 1, Nobody's Fault 1 = 3
Week 4: Joe Staley 1, Multiple 1 = 2
Total on Season: Staley 4.5, VD 1, LD 1, Iupati 1, Miller 1, A.Smith 1, A.Davis .5, Nobody 1, Multiple 1, Goodwin 0, Boone 0 = 12
The 1st one Staley's guy Thomas beats him and gets to Alex. Alex pumped faked and wanted to go to Crabtree who kind of stumbled across the middle. I guess he gave him 3 seconds. I'm not sure if it's half on Alex to throw it away but Staley didn't exactly lock his guy down. 2nd one I don't know. Pocket collapsed because Staley's guy got by him. Alex got jumpy feet but he didnt have much time to throw the ball. As far as I could see nobody was open but the WR in the middle of the field was out of frame. Staley's guy didn't get the sack as Alex scambled. Boone's guy did but Boone did block him and then he released and then Pace kind of went along the line and got Smith for a loss as he scrambled. I'd say Staley because his guy kind of disrupted the pocket but again his guy didn't finish off alex. Not sure if Alex could have thrown it out of bounds... he tried scrambling instead.
And ninefan... Boone and Davis are very very solid over there. Don't think they have allowed more than a few pressures all year between the two of them. They are very very good in the run game as well. They have become a better tandem than Staley and Iupati in both facets although Staley has faced tougher competition than Davis.
I would say Goodwin has been much better this year. He is decent in the pass game... doesn't really get a lot of push for the run game but I haven't really keyed in on him. Who knows if he will be back making 5 mil next year. Could be a draft pick or Kilgore's turn. Iupati is pretty solid in both areas... Staley is better at pass blocking than run blocking but he has struggled this year. Think he gave up 6 sacks last year and already has 4.5 in my totals but no easy task going against the Jared Allens and the Clay Matthews of the league. We seem to have gotten better at blitz pickup than last year but we still get confused at times on who to pick up when they disguise their blitzers. We also tend to not stick with blocks long enough at times.
And really we are a pretty solid line (being better run than pass blockers) but with our style and play we will take sacks. 1 because we don't always get open, 2 we don't do enough quick throws in my mind, 3 you will get plays where the wrs don't see blitz or arent on the same page and have their backs against the qb when he is getting blitzed 4. alex doesnt throw the ball away at times and likes to some times scamble instead. 5 he plays it safe, a sack isn't the end of the world, a forced throw for int is a bigger deal.
