Wow is an understatement. Anyone try doing this with a relaxed face at home. The game has definitely slowed down for him. That comes through crazy repetition and practice.
Pretty nifty of Jimmy. Calm, cool in the pocket like a ten year vet. No wasted steps or motions, just making a good throw. Looks like he knows what's coming most of the time and knows what to do.

Last time I see anything like that from our qb was from Alex Smith, and he was already year 2 into KC with Reid.

Give him some protection and weapons, he's going to slice defenses apart in Kyle's offense.

Hmm...never looked to his right to throw off coverage...needs to be cut asap! We want Beathard!

Seriously, other than injury, the niners have their FQB for many years to come. Now they have to determine if Beathard is a good backup they can groom or if they should grab one in this QB rich draft. I believe Kyle drafted Beathard for this purpose, so...alls well in niner land going forward.

Edit: thanks Thl for the great gifs.

If someone would be willing to breakdown the 3rd and 18 play at the 9:40 mark in the first QTR, I'd like to hear what you think. It was a pass to Celek that came up a yard short of a first down so it wasn't a game changer of a play - although I'm sure Gould liked being that much closer to the goal posts for his FG. But, to me, it is a play that really shows the "it" factor that JG has. He makes the pass look basic and so easy - but I think that's just because he is so cool and has such great vision. And then the arm motion that is really impressive. Quick and accurate. Celek catches it perfectly in stride. The broadcast view has a replay that is from a camera at eye height in the end zone looking right at JG and you can really see how pretty the spin and loft on the ball is and how perfectly he led Celek with the pass. I watched that field level broadcast view replay multiple times and every time it got more impressive to see.

Edit - I see this is covered in the Titans game film analysis thread.

Merry Christmas! Or Holidays.......
Whether you put those presents under a tree or a menorah or don't believe in commercialized Holidays, I think we can all agree we got one of the best gifts of the years when we acquired the services of one Laken Tomlinsen......

No? Was that not the right one? hmmmmm .

Or was it Jimmy freaking Garappolo? I think that's the one !

There are certain absolutes in life. Sleep is good for you. Laughing babies make you smile. Cheese Steaks are better in Philly. And watching winning football is better than losing football.

One thing that is quickly turning into a sure thing is that it's really, really fun watching film of Jimmy G. Does he miss an occasional throw or sometimes seem like he's getting away with one? Yes, of course. But, he's also making so many good reads, getting the ball out on time and in stride to his playmakers and being the funnest and most competent QB to watch run our offense in a LOOOONGGG time.

One thing that was interested was to see the chess match between Kyle on offense and Dick LeBeau on defense. Lebeau loves to outscheme the offensive line to get free runners at the QB. He did this numerous times creating free runners at the QB while rushing 4 and 5 guys. This puts a lot on the QB to make quick, decisive reads and get the ball into his playmakers hands.

Both the Texans and Titans came in with the perspective that they had to throw a lot at Jimmy in the hopes that it would force a bad read or put pressure on him and result in a sack. The crazy thing was, it didn't work. I saw so many different fronts and coverages from TEN it was hard to keep track. They rushed 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 on different plays and played varieties of cover 3, cover 2, man, fire zones, and still out QB threw for 387(if you don't count his -6 yard pass to himself).

The most impressive drive of the day was the 17 play drive for a TD. It was so impressive because he had NO help from his run game. Actually, no help is too nice. On that drive we ran the ball 6 times for -4 yards.....

Getting the ball out on time has been the key to the emergence of Marquise. It allows him to use his speed to set up his shorter routes. But, it takes a QB able and willing to throw the ball on time with accuracy to get the ball to him on those deep curls and comebacks.

One thing we did to attack the Titans zone blitz scheme was to go after their LCB Jackson. So much that they bumped him inside at one point. It was 3 out of 4 plays on our first drive we attacked him with 3 different players on short curls. By putting stress on that zone we were trying to keep TEN from being able to overload the opposite side with Fusco and Beadles and drop an OLB into that passing lane. They had to put a faster player over there to help him on those underneath routes.

There was also a number of good things we did on defense. I liked what I saw from S. Thomas. Like I thought he would a few weeks ago he showed even more improvement this week and started to jump off the screen a little bit. Not so much for the stat sheet but he's doing a number of dirty work things that are nice to see and resulted in pressures or sacks(one was overturned by a penalty on Johnson) by Buckner.

All in all, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad!
JD setting the table.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

JD, the gift that keeps on giving...

On the very first drive of the game we saw how well Dick LeBeau can attack OL protection. He was able to scheme a free rusher at JG while only rushing 4 defenders. When the 49ers went empty set, Dick was licking his chops and showed why he's a legendary defensive coach. You covered what I wanted to say about JG. Guy plays with the understanding of a seasoned vet. With only his 5th start under his belt, it's hard to believe that he does have much more room to grow as he gains more playing experience.

Like HOU did, TEN also threw a crapload of coverages at JG and JG handled it well. There's a real trust being established between JG and Goodwin. The anticipation that JG throws with when targeting Goodwin, it's as if they've played together for 4 years, not 4 games. I'll show a number of great anticipation throws to Goodwin.

TEN played so many coverages I think they confused themselves. Blown coverages led to a number of big plays for the 49ers. I'll show a few of those. I haven't watched the 49ers defense yet.

It goes both ways...Goodwin protected Jimmy on two errant throws during the game too...saved him from 2 Int's. They are working up some special chemistry. Going to have to think about extending Goodwins deal next offseason too before he gets expensive.
This was the very first throw of the game and it shows why we love Jimmy so much.



Here we're going to do a few things. First, we split Juice out wide with Goodwin in the slot. This reveals zone coverage with a safety on Goodwin and a corner on Juice. TEN is showing a coverage we should be familiar with on this one. It's a cover-3 "Mable" a la Nick Saban. The "Mable" stands for "man" on the single receiver side. It's used to attack 3 receiver looks to defeat flood concepts. The ILB on the trips side will match any route to the flat and play underneath that route and the SS will release any inside breaking route and jump the first out-breaking route. The Mike will then play a more middle zone instead of the usually hook/curl zone. As you'll see, this will defeat both Celek and Goodwin's routes.



Here you see the close corner in zone coverage on Juice and the Safety as well. Note the LB's. You see the "MIKE" looking for those in breaking routes as he'll be looking to jump those from the trips side. You also see the SS gaining outside leverage on Goodwin, this is classic "Mable" coverage. That and the man-coverage up top.



Here's what's really neat about what Goodwin has been able to do. You see how much attention he grabs. The corner is really leary of any double move outside here so he's looking for Goodwin. This leaves Juice wide open. You see Jimmy has already let the ball rip.



These are those little things that separate QB's. He gets the ball out on time and places it perfectly on the outside shouder of Juice. This allows him to turn and run to the outside away from all the potential tacklers. He gets 5 yards RAC on this play for a first down.



Just watch this perrrrrfect 5 step drop to an out throw. The timing......

I still can't believe we got Jimmy G.
Jonny D, always waiting for your and Marvins post game analysis.
Didn't you guys listen to the Titans CB's?

JG didn't do anything. They just played a poor game.


Hahahahahagagagaggagahahahahahahaha the butthurt is strong. Can't pass for 380 without winning a few battles and keeping the offense on the field
