I agree 100% with this post.
Watching NFL network the other day they diagrammed a very simple Philly pass play that works over and over because it is a staple pass play in NFL offenses for new quarterbacks, yet it produces big yardage.
(I will try to put it into words)
A. 2 receivers on 1 side - both drive downfield hard off the ball - the inside receiver breaks in on a post at 10 yards and the outside guy at 15 yards - looks like a double post. (SHARP cuts in though, no 49ers rounded lazy routes).
B. The READ - IF the safety comes down on the inside guy, QB throws over top to the outside receiver cutting behind the safety. IF the safety falls back to help cover the deeper post, WAIT FOR IT - the underneath receiver veers back outside (a Z route) in the zone vacate by the corner and the safety, QB throws to inside receiver breaking back out (again, a hard cut, no arching route).
Again and again the inside or outside guy were breaking wide open for deep gains.
I'VE NEVER SEEN THE 49ERS RUN A PLAY LIKE THIS UNDER ROMAN. Hard breaks, easy 2 man read.
It was demoralizing that a 1st year coaching staff with a 1st year QB could run such better designed plays.
