Agreed...I'm highly doubt he went that next level and looked at play design/play calling/passing philsophy...I know Gruden, Tirico and Dilfer touched on it (as did Harbaugh in his play description on the final INT) but I think initially, most are just looking at outcomes (i.e. CK is only looking to his first read). Well duh...that's the play design often times (team passing concept: AR1 or 2). We just don't see this MUCH at the NFL level so he's probably assuming every passing play is a PS play and that there are built in progressions and that CK is just honing in on his first (and only) read; it's all his issue. But we all know that is not always the case.
I have no idea what Cossell is or is not assuming. As far as I can tell, Gruden et al commented on elements of Kaepernick's game and play calling.
Talking about those elements is entirely different than talking about this proposed theory. Those elements just do not constitute a theory.
By the way, what is a PS play? Is this an element in this AR construct? Maybe, I just dumb, but these terms (PS play, AR 1 and AR2) are new to me.
The simple fact is few, if any outside of this forum, have talked about or are talking about this AR theory (AR 1 or AR 2, or whatever it is called).
As I said in a previous post. It will be interesting to see if the AR theory escapes the confines of Niner Talk.
Sorry, PS stands for Pro Style passing plays...so true WCO designs with built in progression reads (high-to-low concepts, etc.) or Spraed formations (many 4 and even 5 receiver sets where CK is in shotgun and just scans the field left to right and vice versa and picks the best option ala Brady-like).
And you're right, Gruden, Tirico, Dilfer, etc. noted the "scheming guys open" AR concept...they were the first ones to talk about it after we noted it here in NT. Every offense does this though...I just felt we did it a lot when Crabtree was hurt (makes sense) and we do it a lot in the RZ (esp. AR 2's). But once Crabtree came back, it seems were were running more PS passing plays which is a good thing b/c CK has to learn defenses and progression reads if we're ever going to get to that next level. He made strides IMHO. Also, when the AR works, it tends to work very well...when it didn't earlier in the year, it was a nightmare...but since Crabtree came back, it's been less of an issue d/t much improved ad lib plays broken from an AR.
In fact one could probably make a good argument in that our most successful plays were ad lib plays once Crabtree came back!
