All Rodgers had was the dink and dunk. The Defense took away the run, the long pass and the intermediate pass. When they ran on first down it was as if they wasted a play. Rodgers is very lucky from a health standpoint, he was left unprotected on his scrambles. He's a very good QB but what else does the team have?
A running back from the retread mill, a tight end that whined on every play, corners that can't cover, a long haired linebacker that's a one trick pony. They remind me of the Houston Gamblers. The run and shoot, the spread, the fun and gun, the shotgun with Billy Kilmer and on and on and on.
Brown and Goldson messed up on the TD play. Miscommunicate. One thought the other wasn't where he would be.
That's the type of thing that happens when the pass rush doesn't get there.
WTF are you talking about? Is that a jab at the lack of pass rush? The Niners defense just dominated the MVP QB and his offense on the road so you are going to nit pick how they did it? Save it.
Fangio's game plan was brilliant and was executed almost perfectly by the D. So what if they scored that one touchdown. It's the 15-1 Green Bay Packers they were playing, not the Miami Dolphins or Cleveland Browns. They were going to score sometime. The Niners won the game convincingly on the biggest stage. Give credit where credit is due.
Yeah, we changed the personnel packages a bit but essentially had the exact same philosophy as last year...play deep, give up the underneath, give up yards but not many TD's or deep gains save for scrambles (moderate pressure with confusing coverage schemes).
The ONLY criticism I could come up with is regards to Vic not having faith in the strengths of his secondary to be physical up at the LOS and as a result, gave these guys clean releases. This was especially true on 3rd downs, when we blitzed and at the goal line (twice). I'd like to see them get up in their face and bring that nasty attitude across the board (not just from the LBers and S's).
