I tried doing my usual 4-Watch Formula. I watch the game live Sunday, then once each following day until Thursday. Then I turn my attention to who we're playing that weekend.
This time I couldn't...I watched the game two and a half times and might not watch it again...too frustrating
Here's what I noticed...
Kap tends to look at his wristband longer or check it on his way to the line when it's a pass........I noticed this in the Cardinals game actually..
The hand licking thing seems to be random to my eyes...he licks his hands when going in shotgun often, doesn't matter if it's run/pass. Under center he doesn't do it as much but not enough to call it a habit.
Play-action passes were not executed very well by the QB or RBs. The Rams LBs & DBs were able to stay in coverage comfortably. (Conversely, there were a few times where I noticed Donte Whitner got absolutely fooled
on play fakes to Steven Jackson. Caught him doing the slide-and-bail a few times...)
Bruce Miller's shifts can also sometimes give away the play call. When he shifts to a particular gap, we run behind that regardless of the action up front (trap, stretch, lead dive scheme). When he over extends his motion, it's often a play-action (a poor play fake at that)
On running plays to the outside, Vernon Davis was cheating toward the man/area he was supposed to block, he does this quite a bit. Sometimes it works because it causes the defender to shift a bit and gives us a chance to change the play (when Alex was playing).....
Mike Iupati had an unenthusiastic performance..just thought I'd throw that in...
