"in 8 quarters" of preseason football
Preseason = highly predictive glorified scrimmages
Sure, I get that. No one's pushing the panic button. I'm not. But the point is, we shouldn't be fantasizing about the season either.
Two trends are bothering me:
1) Special teams play. It's disturbing. I have all the ST plays from KC if you want to see a bulletin of them. Frankly, it's grim. IMO, we need to rearrange our regular practice schedule NOW to give the ST's way more time than they have been getting. IMO. This problem will not go away without more practice and cohesion.
2) Offensive Playcalling + skill position explosivity. I am not really really upset about this but we could pick it up a notch in the booth. I understand the vanilla playcalling with green recruits. It's an ok thing to do. Just, try a little harder to be successful please. Read the D, react to what's there. I think we can do little more of that with the 2's. That's ok. That's football too. I'll just point out that other teams 2's are scoring in the preseason with drives, big plays. Not us.
But, hey, who needs to listen to BrodieBlueBanaGrinch. Let's start measuring the ring finger for super bowl jewelry. Let's have a poll! How many 49ers will drink champagne after the SUper Bowl victory, how many will drink Kristal!
Poll it up!
