He knows his stuff. I'm sure he was an all-star during film sessions and team meetings. He just didn't have the physical tools or the calm under pressure to be a good QB. He is very qualified to evaluate QB play. But like Kap said, how can make a broad generalization about his ability to work through progressions when Trent doesn't even know what the progression is on a given play?
Greg Cossel admitted that Dilfer was right. He also watches a lot of film and he seems to be unbiased in his criticism, positive or negative.
Cossel isnt the brightest bulb in the box either. Fans seem to forget that if these media "experts" were truly experts... they would still be employed. They just spout out their opinions on the subject, they dont know any more than what the TV shows, they arent in the huddle, they dont know the playbook, and should be taken with a grain of salt.
Blame has to reside with Harbaugh & Roman first, then Kaep. Why Roman stops running Frank in second halves is the most asinine thing Ive ever seen, ranks up their with Raye's handling of this offense. The play caller should be calling plays with quick reads not routes 10+ yards when going against one of the best front sevens in the NFL, that all coaches. The only thing Kaep can do is to audible out of a call, but lets remember he is still relatively young in terms of playing time and usually a good soldier, he may not be sure enough to overide a call from the coach. Its obvious Roman wants to force the deep passes because thats where Kap is comfortable, but game situations need to be taken into account, and they just arent under Roman.
