SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS ST. LOUIS RAMS GAMEDAY THREAD (Week 4)

He is/will be constantly double teamed going forward. This is except when playing Seattle, when one CB is more than enough.

The 49ers do not have any other good WRs, meaning, any player who can play the position with efficiency. Lining up as a WR and just running around, and constantly being covered by an avg DB (= Colts DBs) does not make one a good WR.

Williams, Baldwin, Moore, Patton are just people lining up at WR at this point.

This team deserves better.

Agreed.

They should make a mid season blockbuster trade...ala the Colts to get Richardson( He didnt play all that well because they just got him but his acquisition energized that team)

Even though Crabs and MM, will be back later in the year, we need that spark on offense NOW. Give up an 2nd or 3rd and get a guy that forces defenses to cover him so Boldin isnt double covered every play

I am too lazy to look it up. Any update as to VD's status for Thurs. And besides Willis being out for sure any other players that may sit out Thurs?

Don't know about Davis but Ventrone had a concussion on a punt return block for Williams so he is probably out. With Dahl back there Colts nearly had a block and seemed to get more pressure. Will be tough enough without Willis and Aldon so hopefully VD can play.

Game could go either way. If we start fast and strike first then we can win this. Another slow start from the offense and we are figgity f**ked.

Harbaugh on WR Jon Baldwin possibly joining the offense: "That's possible. He's doing a good job."

I hope he means there's a real chance. Cause I mean, at the same time I don't think Harbaugh would say, "Gee, not really sure about that. He's still learning." or something like that. I badly want to see Baldwin play. The guy has a lot of talent and can be very useful if we give him a chance to be utilized.

Might as well if the Wr's are struggling against press coverage.

As long as it is the creativr runs we have been accustomed to last couple yrs! And not nolans or sings same 3 runs in the middle! We need to activate baldwin also for the game imo, may help if vernon doesnt play. He is big n fast, in kc he caught a few balls as well!

That would satisfy the fans short-term, but realistically, it might not be worth mortgaging the future. Nobody's going to trade a sure-fire #1 (or even a good #2) receiver this early in the season unless he comes with more baggage than the airport pickup carousel. Also, it would take anybody we gave that #1 or #2 pick for ('cause that's what smart teams will charge us) at least several weeks to get up to speed on our tome-like playbook.



You can get away with throwing in a RB on limited practice time/playbook study (just commit to running and don't audible into a pass-protect situation even if the linebackers sneak up), but with receivers, you'd be risking interceptions off miscommunications or worse, the health of the receiver if he isn't 100% certain what he's doing. Lack of assignment understanding can even stunt the run game, but I'm droning…



The point is, the coaches know all this, and with the timeline for Manningham and Crabtree looking like late November - early December (with luck), and our schedule getting rather forgiving after Houston, the staff will like try to put a band-aid on the offense until reinforcements arrive.
