Anquan Boldin and Andy Lee had passer Ratings of 39.6... Opinion on the Trickery?

Anquan Boldin and Andy Lee had passer Ratings of 39.6... Opinion on the Trickery?

Lee is all leg no arm
Gives Seahawks much more to think about and study for next week!

We only had one cute one today. The fake punt happened when the game was already over.

Hmm. Carolina has a good defense. The cute play did not hurt.
The Andy Lee punt was all situational. It was a "trick play" by definition, but in reality it would not affect the outcome of the game either way, so the stakes were low (actually, non-existant). That play was in the playbook as another way to attempt to run the clock at the end of a won game.

The thought was that if the pass was completed, the Niners could take a knee and avoid any potential further injuries. That's all.

This end of story. Not a trick play just trying to end the game
Better arm than Colston lol.

Lee needs to stop neglecting his upper body in the gym.
These plays don't bother me, the pass to Tukuafu does, because he is DL, not a converted TE like Staley, who played TE as a freshman and bulked up. We got him hurt on that play. Boldin was a QB in the past, like Arnaz Battle.

That being said, those plays do give SEA something to game plan for, although not successful.
I believe that sometimes you run plays and show things that you have no intent on running again so your opponent has to prepare for it. Since the az game we have run more reverses than usual. We even have ran fake reverses after handing the ball to gore inside the tackles
As mentioned, the only reason they "faked" the punt is because the Panthers were rushing everybody. Nobody was back to return the punt, and nobody was guarding the gunners. It almost certainly wasn't the called play, it was an "audible" by Lee. They probably have some sort of contingency in place for a situation like this (i.e. if this happens, throw instead of punt).

We all saw two "trick" plays in the game. Personally I hated the Anquan pass play, that could have been picked. The fake punt looked good, but didn't work... wish we hadn't wasted that one :(

Only one trick play

Fake punt was inevitable because the panther left both gunners wide open

Plus the gunners were wide open..uncovered
Lol @ wasting the "fake" punt. I doubt the Seahawks leave our gunners all alone. Unless they are down by multiple scores with a min left. In which case, darn they will know we won't kick into a situation where we can't block everybody.
The plays themselves were not very good but what makes me happy is that Roman finally started being a little more aggressive i hope he keeps it up in Seattle were going to need it against the best D in the NFL but he really needs to choose the trickery wisely.
