can we use this blueprint

i do not remember, cause i am a niner for life , but when big ben was a rookie , didn't steelers use the same philosophy run the ball, play good defense , and do not kill themselves with turnovers , the reason why i ask this is because alex is a starter for 8 years , compare to kaep who is in his second years , why can we not let kaep or tollizen do the same and also if you look at it when kaep is in we go deep down the field more . as a frustrated niner fan we can not afford to go through another rebuilding stage because our qb can not throw a 20 or more yard route

The main reason why they go down the field when CK was in there, if he didn't hand off or run the ball himself, it's cause the defense will be expecting CK to run. It doesn't necessarily work and it hasn't.

as much as I hate rapistberger, he's a good qb
lol but remember rapistberger was a mobile qb at first but if you notice now in his career he use his arm now , could it be roman is not the oc we need because i thought a oc was to use strategy when going against a defense the giants are not good against the run i wish we would have pound the ball the go to play action what the hell is he thinking

big ben's rookie year

358 pass attempts

vs

618 run attempts


almost a 35% - 65% split

last year for Alex's first year in a new system

451 pass attempts

498 run attempts

almost a 50 / 50 split.

I'm sure with Alex or Kaep we could find a more happy medium and excel in both areas.

You need to be watching game tape right now Michael instead of posting on the zone. Its a short week.

You do not remember because you were dripping H20 from behind your ears.

Again, not sure if it's Roman or Smith (or a combo of Roman knowing Smith), but it really doesn't seem like Smith looks much past the 10 yard line. And if he's made to scramble, forget about the "big play." Smith has zero ability to buy his recievers time for big plays. When on the go, he's about as predictable as the sun rising. I use to think we could win a SB with him, now I'm seriously having my doubts. If we do, it will have to be Raven's style 2000.
