18 play drive in the fourth quarter

Seven times the niners lined up in off set I formation, motioned Mcdonald across to the right, 5 times Frank roared through the line for a gain on a back breaking drive, once Miller took it and once Diixie took a turn, but Frank did what Frank does, he owned it, everyone in the stadium knew he was going, and nothing would stop him, it was electric. When this team needed to ice the game, run the clock and put a dagger in Cards, Frank was the man.

I have never seen a drive like that in my life, the same play, the same formation over and over, in youth football we have a saying, "run it until they stop it" The Cards could never in a million years stop that play, they only thing that slowed it was Frank needing a breather. If you did not get geeked out by that play, you may not really understand the game of football, that was epic, and memorable, on a once in a lifetime scale, Amazing!
That did it for us. That was a game killer for the Cards, loved every moment of it. Too bad it wasn't gore with the TD, but he seems less selfish, not that he was. But he has mentored Hunter, and the younger backs. Love Gore, keep him here till he retires, he still has it.
Epic epic drive and right at the right time. Props for Roman learning from the Colts loss. Stick with what works, your identity, until you are forced to adapt. The Cards, 5th against the rush had done a decent job of containing our run game up to that point. A thing of beauty.
Hands down highlight of the game for me!

The run game has also allowed us to to gash the defense with some deep passes. Maybe Roman should be the running backs coach who strictly designs the run plays and see what Rathman has in his notebook for pass plays as an OC.

I kinda hope Roman bolts for USC, and Rathman gets the OC job. But wonder if he is content with the RB Coach job.
That drive gave me back the faith that was slowly dwindling in the 3rd quarter.
Thanks for this thread Golitta.

That really was impressive. Would have been epic for sure in a playoff win that takes them to a Bowl win or a Bowl win.

I wanna see some FB and HB circle routes and some LMJ in the seam from the backfield after Vernon clears out. That was a Walsh offense. Rathman could bring that back. Want to see slants and when the defense shift, then screw with their heads with the slant being the clear-out and then throw to the annoying TE that always gets the play when everything is covered.

Right now, our passing game has very little creativity.

Wouldn't be surprised if Roman is offered the Texans HC job after this season.
Not many teams in today's NFL can do something like that. Let's hope it's a microcosm of things to come.

I see what you mean. Just find it shocking that Rathman is all of a sudden a candidate...I'm just skeptical of handing the RB's coach the keys to the offense when we don't even know if he can handle it all.

He's been a position coach for some time now. Isn't the next level to be the coordinator of that side?

If he could get a QB, that would be a great place for him to land. Those guys are great runners already their QB play is killing their season. Kubiak should be shot before midseason.
