I'd hate to see Dixon go. He does everything on a hyper-enthusiasm level and does it well. If he is traded, it hopefully will be for a big benefit.
When Hunter comes in he is always given the ball and sent outside. It is surprising that he ever gains a yard. His losses seem to be when the blockers cannot block all eight guys congregating on his obvious route.
Williams...He wants to succeed and he must also know that the fan base wants him gone and that must be a terrible thing for him. It would be nice if he went to another team, lost the pressure and succeeded and could end his career that way.
Never, ever run the Prevent a Win defense again or I will be really, really mad. It is to be employed only for 4th and 79 to go on the last play of the game.
CK's stats are vastly underrated. His receivers are almost never open and there are no easy screens or rumbling tight ends underneath to help him out. He has to throw it 90 mph into tight spaces down-field time after time. Half the time it is to Bolding who isn't even open.
In the end, QB ratings, all stats really, are bogus. So much depends on things beyond the player's control. You pretty much have to observe someone. We see great players on sucky teams in all sports and we know they are great despite the stats they can never put up. I have been around awhile, have seen a lot of QBs and never have I ever seen one who had the potential of CK. Size, speed, arm strength, mental ability, leadership...and this after one season of starts. If he was on a well-coached pass-first team with a terrific receiving corps he would have spectacular stats right now. If he was not being stuck in the pocket and was allowed to simply go for it without restrictions, he would be amazing right now, here. He is actually being throttled with the role he is being given, the play calling and the ability of the receivers who get the playing time (so far).
Watching KC a couple of times it was amazing that here is Smith, same Alex really, throwing short, throwing it away, running right...you know...yet most of the time there was someone 5-10 yards away open as can be. That rarely was the case here. Mystifying that the short passing game is not used, aside from a few to Miller and guys coming back from downfield to help.
At the same time, Boldin is amazing. Never open, but he screens out the defender and can catch CK's bullets with his hands. Not everyone appreciates how hard this is!
Watching Welker...what a great option he is. Thinking LMJ could do that. It would really mess up defenses. We would see an occasional spectacular play I'll bet.
It certainly will be interesting to see the injured and disabled guys come back. The Niner staff is inventive in terms of lining people up at times, but very cautious in substitution patterns. Hopefully the depth will be what we think it is and actually used.
Another appreciative reader of your posts. Do try to hurry them out though. Like my kids used to say "We are WAITING".
