This drive starts outside the red zone but will eventually get to the 20 yard line so I will include this set of downs.
1st & 10
49ers use Double Slants concept on the left (Crabs, Ham). They try to get a rub on the right (VD, Boldin). Both concepts are designed to bust man coverage. Not shown is how the TB defense made an audible pre-snap as three of the defenders flap their arms as to call a different coverage.
Kap completes his dropback and is looking at tampa2 coverage (zone). Two deep safeties (blue), CBs (red) force the inside release, MLB (orange) dropping to his deep zone. In whiteboard football, this play call will fail against this defensive coverage call. Kap is shown looking towards his right to VD/Boldin. If Kap throws to VD, the CB at the bottom of the screen will quickly come up to make the tackle. There is currently no passing lane to Boldin's slant. Kap will wait for the window to open once Boldin gets clear from the LB currently close to VD.
As a passing lane is about to open to Boldin's slant, Kap is shown pulling the trigger. The deep safety (blue) will drive on the route and smack Boldin as soon as the pass arrives.
Ball is dislodged. Incomplete pass.
2nd & 10
Fly sweep left to LMJ.
All the Olinemen, except for Goodwin, will cut block the defender in front of them.
Four cutblocks (Staley, Snyder, Boone, ADavis) while Goodwin works his way to the edge to lead. Miller will join in leading this sweep to the left.
Miller (on the ground) identifies his block and dives at the feet of the LB (blue). The LB shows off his agility and leaps over Miller's block, never breaking stride. Now, that LB becomes Goodwin's block. Crabs (orange) does a good job sustaining his block on the CB.
Goodwin is outmatched trying to block a LB running full stride and the LB never allows LMJ to gain the edge. Crabs wins on his block. Had Miller made a successful block, Goodwin's block would have been the yellow block and this play has a chance for a nice result.
Gain of +1. The ball is now on the 20 yard line so I think this makes it a red zone opportunity on the stat sheet.
Before the play, there was a false start penalty.
3rd & 14
49ers call Four Verticals.
TB calls cover1 man
Kap hits the top of his dropback and sees no one open.
The pressure flushes Kap from the pocket and he rolls right. Boldin will see Kap rolling right and break off his route to go towards the sidelines.
Boldin is hit right as the pass arrives. Incomplete pass. Bring in the FG unit.
