For the following reasons listed in http://blog.sfgate.com/49ers/2012/08/27/film-review-of-the-first-quarter-in-denver-secondary-struggled/
, I must admit I'm concerned
"-Alex Smith might have had Crabtree open but didn't throw it on third down, then got sacked. Smith looked slow through his reads, and also had Randy Moss open on the back side." - This has nothing to do w/ game planning, or hiding the playbook, but rather Smith acting slow and like various times in the past. I'm concerned.
"-Willis McGahee nearly cut Patrick Willis in two on pass protection. That is one area where NaVorro Bowman is better and that's as a blitzer. He missed this game with a leg injury." I feel like I must be wrong here since most people think Willis is doing just fine, but I've noticed a slowness in reaction or tackling in him ever since the end of the 2010 season. I hope I'm wrong.
"-Willis got McGahee back the next play; he took on the guard and then stuffed McGahee." - Definitely made up for the above statement.
"-Not a great game by Larry Grant. He looked lost in coverage a couple times and looked slow reading run." - Was it simply a case of no game planning?
"-Carlos Rogers on the first touchdown pass to Eric Decker bit too hard on his inside fake. He had help inside and didn't need to follow Decker. When Decker cut to the pylon, Rogers was out of position." - I really hope this was a case of game planning, cause I'm concerned that these kind of tendencies can only bite during the regular season.
"-The secondary did not look cohesive. No one seemed to know where their help was. Dashon Goldson looks like he was sleep-walking out there." - same as above
