Just agreeing with what I've seen some people saying here, which why in the cornbread f*** don't they utilize quick hitting pass plays like swings, screens, slants, short in's/crosses, ESPECIALLY with a DL that is teeing off on your OL? I wasn't at the game today so can't really say what kind of routes were being run on most plays, but I got the sense it's either deep seam routes or short curls where a WR, should a completion actually occur, is facing the QB and doesn't have the benefit of catching the ball in stride. That's great when you want 7 yards on a 3rd&6, but it would be nice to see routes where a receiver is coming across the field, or the RB in the flat on a swing.
LMJ was activated...good first step. Now, I dunno, maybe get him the ball in space?
Oh well, gotta admit not real confident right now and would not be surprised in the least if they lose the next two on the road to NO and Wash, and then 12/8 to Seattle...and oh by the way, don't sleep on the Rams, either. Winning the NFCW is now a pipe dream, and even the second wildcard and a #6 see are going to be a dogfight.
I was willing to accept that sure, the passing game wasn't great during the 5-game win streak, but it didn't have to be because the run game was so strong. But today, even though the run game was getting yards, nothing was ever in sync and it was clear Kaepernick and the passing game would have to win this game...no sugarcoating it, they failed miserably and have given no indication things are going to get better.
