Week 13: Thoughts after rewatching the game...

I just want to know why they didn't just keep going to the slant play Jenkins was totally lost. We could have done that play all the way to the goaline in overtime.

Exactly....and then you hit him with a double move and he probably would have gone for it.

i think the coaches do this conservative crap for a reason..and i dont like this $hit !!!
for no specific reason, there was a point during this game when i was wondering if alex being overly cautious with the ball was by the coaches design and not because of any limitation in his abilities...............
That is a darn good point feeeeever. Playcalling here was horrid , especially on those two Kap plays. HE didn't call the plays, Roman and Harbaugh did. Kap just made the mistakes.

Exaclty. I'm watching the game like they setting up the double move but nothing. I mean how many times did Moose and Goose point out about how the Rams can't stop the slant, and that the Rams still haven't adjusted. On that final 3rd down in overtime why roll out CK and take away one side of the field? Let him have the slant option on both sides of the field. On a previous 3rd down they ran a slant to Moss and Jenkins was 5 yards off. They were giving us free money and our coaches put their hands in their pockets and didn't pick it up..

yeah i know we couldn't get the run game going outside of one drive and the entire playbooks works off of that, but c'mon...............


there also a point in the game when we brought in Tuku at FB and wondered.......... has this thing ever REALLY worked this season?

- can we please stop throwing to Delanie its clear he cant be trusted to catch it. Also passing on Fleener looks pretty dumb right now.

- I think JH is gonna have to take more of an active role in play calling. Roman has proven this year when it matters the most his balls shrivel up like a raisin.

- Also can they rotate our Dline a bit more because at the end of the game those dudes are drained.

- Gotta do something about Akers before its too late, dude has already cost us two victories.

fleener got his 1st TD this season yesterday... not sure if i would say we made a dumb move passing on fleener at this point.
Okay, I have been coming to the zone for years and do not post very often. Just like reading what people have to say. Hell, I just barely signed up. I gotta state my opinion on this though.......

Marvin, I always love your posts but this one is way off. Kaep lost us the game, plain and simple. Even if it was a bad safety call he shouldn't have ran back 17 yards in the first place. Even if it was a bad pitch call, he still threw it way over Ginn's head. He made really one good run and a few good passes. For the most part, he was checking it down all game too. He also had at least 2 very bad passes that I remember that Alex always seems to make.

Who knows if we win with Alex in there but I will go with history. With Alex at QB we usually win the games we are supposed to. He DOESN'T make stupid mistakes.

This is NOT a year to mess around at QB. Yes Kaep may be more explosive, but 1 or 2 more explosive plays doesn't win games. It is consistency that wins games. Bring Kaep in next year. I am fine with that but this year is Alex's unless he gets hurt again.

Also, I am starting to lose a lot of confidence in Harbaugh. The guy just doesn't seem to know what he is doing sometimes. He looks confused on the sidelines. I know he is better than any coach we have had in years but the guy needs to push his ego aside. This is getting crazy.

Please cut Akers if we can find a better replacement. If not then that sucks.

This is where I am on this.

Have anyone else noticed the weird pattern this season is taking: WW L WW L WW T WW L if this holds true we beat the Dolphins & Pats, lose to the Seahawks then beat the Cards, win our 1st playoff game and lose our 2nd, which would mean no Super Bowl and that sucks.. I hope we can snap out of it this strange pattern, if we ever needed a 3 or more game winning streak it's now
Tough loss for the whole team, not only Kaep's fault. Here is my list of events that would have prevented a loss, feel free to add if I missed something:

1. Kaep doesn't mess up pitch.
2. Kaep doesn't run out of bounds on last drive.
3. Walker catches easy pass.
4. Ginn jumps on ball instead of trying to pick up.
5. Refs get safety call correct.
6. Refs don't throw roughing flag on rams last drive.
7. Coaches don't call option play.
8. Akers makes kick.

Kaep not running out of bounds is the tough one for me. It is such a basic concept and it burns their last time out.


my fiance were watching a game near a rams fan...when I saw ginn go in motion and we were running that...all three of us said..."what the heck is that?" ...

then when it happned, to be honest..I was laughing. I thought some of the play calling in this game was absolutely terrible.

Also, guys dont forget...a lot of penalties, like holding and false starts squandered our previous plays...

Delanie makes that touchdown catch, and we're not even talking about this crap.
I wonder if the 10 am time had anything to do with the loss and mistakes, we've lost 2/3 of those games this year. Kaep didn't have the power of Jesus tats on his side yesterday, but maybe Jesus just doesn't wake that early on sundays.
