What was the gameplan again? I dont get it. Sending in "slow" receivers against physical DBs???..."brilliant".
Where was our passrush? Passrush was missing against the pack, too (at least in the 1st half). Fangio, do your f... job finally.
If we want to be a serious SB contender, we will have to start doing our homework. First of all, scout your opponent exactly, especially if you to play against him twice a year.
THAT was the problem. Harbaugh, Roman and Fangio didn't scout. they just went out ther and winged it. Total morons.
Sending slow receivers....um...do they HAVE fast ones?
Pass Rush? It was there all night. Did ya notice that WIlson had his lowest Qb rating in his last 10 starts AND was sacked 4 times?
They should have at least looked at the game last year in Seattle. Carroll ran pretty much the same defense then as he did yesterday. He dared Kaepernick to try to beat his best 3 secondary defenders and rushed the other 8. Harbaugh, instead of using some quick release options to Vernon and McDonald, he held them in to block, which played right into Carroll's hand. Now Kaepernick's receiving options were stymied and eventually the Seahawks were able to get enough pressure to force him into bad decisions.
I was very enthusiastic over the drafting of McDonald to be used as a traditional TE. He has the size and body to shield off even linebackers to make the catch. As Seattle showed with the TD pass to Lynch, the best way to beat a blitz is with a quick pass into the area just vacated by the blitzer. (Walsh teams used to kill opponents with that) Vernon Davis has never learned to do that effectively but he does other things well. McDonald is the key to that strategy, along with a back swinging out of the back field or sneaking through the LOS. In either case, the 49ers never seemed to even attempt that. Had they been able to have even moderate success with that strategy, it would have forced Seattle to drop a LB back into coverage or keep Chancellor back there instead of jamming the box. Why Harbaugh never seems to employ that strategy with Kaepernick is a mystery. Yesterday we saw a young, inexperienced QB obviously having trouble finding receivers. He should have had that easy safety valve sitting right there in front of him...but it never happened.
