I don't understand this L shaped rush. That makes it even more difficult for the DE, doesn't it? I'd have to see the whole play, I think.
So say Kap sees the DE crash in to play the run...that's his cue to keep the ball and run to the outside. That's also the long half of the "L" I'm talking about. I think the DE is going to fake like he's playing the run, forcing a Kap keeper, and then immediately breaking off to try to stop Kap on the outside run (the short leg of the "L" I'm talking about).
I don't think that would work because Kaepernick will be full accelerated by the time the DE changes direction.
Anyway, the quickest way between two points is going to get you better results, so you should scheme with that idea, IMO.
No one should make excuses as to why the Pats and the Broncos fell. I think Baltimore played hard and, as the analysts are reinforcing to no end, they surfed through the playoffs on an emotional wave.
That's how they came out on top in the AFC. We rode the same wave to get to the top of the NFC. Nobody's really making a point to bring that to light. We're a superior team in nearly every facet.
The Niners are betting favorites for a reason. You can't always look to the media to make accurate predictions because, unlike Vegas, the media has to appeal to multiple demographics. If everybody on NFLN, CBS, FOX were to pick the Vegas favorite and the better team on paper, they would effectively alienate the entire East Coast and as a network thriving on ratings and advertisements, that's bad business. My dad works for FOX and he'd probably tell you the same thing.
