1. The pass scheme BLOWS - it is incredibly basic, lots of flood the zone routes with easy curves to the pattern - easy as heck to cover. When are we getting a real NFL pass offense. Love your point about the college pass plays - exactly.
2. When we go into a game with a plan that isn't working, this staff seems to have nearly ZERO ability to adjust on the fly. What the heck? I've seen high school teams adapt more to game situation!
3. The most distressing thing - the 49ers have been out "physicalled" by the Seahawks twice in a row now. Their plan is simple - smother our offense with their physical plan at both the DL and DBs, and then wear down our defense with Lynch until they can break away with the score in the latter stages of the game. The only way to beat this plan is with a BETTER PLAN - and our coaches aren't coming up with one.
This is mainly on the coaches.
Sorry man, but against GB and Atlanta, and nearly against Baltimore in the PLAYOFFS, we were behind (way behind), and our coaching staff, Kap, and the defense did adjust and made great second half comebacks.
The problem is Seattle. For some reason we don't react when playing there. We did great on Wilson, good on Lynch, took out the receivers, but we just didn't dial up anything on offense..
When you have a great DL and CB's like they do, ITS TOUGH. Not many teams will put up points against them. Thats why I keep saying the the no huddle, at least for parts of the game can get them out of rhythm
