I'll always be my biggest critic, I don't need "so called" fans DMing me about stuff I know that needs to be fixed. Period.

Well guess what. They were right.

I think it's the other way around. National media was overhyping the team + maybe 2/3 of the fans here. But there were some sensible ones who kept the predictions to 6 to 10 wins. I will say that I don't think Dez Bryant would be the answer. We need some speed.

That's pretty much it in a nutshell. To me its the biggest goal out of the offseason next year. They gotta get some guys there. Not one, but several. Marsh isn't the guy. Marsh is a guy you replace.
I'd say a free agent and two draft picks
Best way to go. Triple dip. I want two guys that have the potential to start. I don't even mind a Jeremiah Attaochu type of signing (meaning taking a veteran) AS LONG as that player is not being depended on to be the answer at pass rush, but rather just another guy who has a chance to earn a roster spot. But you cannot depend on the Attaochu's and Marsh's of the world to be your main guys at the position. Same with Solomon Thomas. His game has been hurt so much by this neglect of that position. It's getting to be Tank Carradine-like mismanagement.

I'll be honest, I never liked that - fans speaking personally to a player about their job performance. I wouldn't do that to any other person about their job, short of elected officials. But football players? Let them be.
So basically kyle is destroying a perfectly coached up qb. Got it

Agreed.

I have an opinion of his play that I'll express here, but telling him is kinda out of bounds. He know more than any of us what he's done wrong.

Same ol' Sus.

Yes, Kyle is ruining him in the same way that he "ruined" Matt Ryan in 2015. Its to bad that Ryan was ruined for the rest of his career...what? Huh? Whats that you say? League MVP in 2016?

Oh. Nevermind. :D

everything about this team was over hyped in my opinion in the off season by the media and a whole bunch of fans on this web site and 99 per cent of the mods
I completely agree with your theory on Jimmy. Shanahans offense is known to be tough on QBs and having to wing it last year simplified it a lot for him. Right now he has a million thoughts going on in his head, from the scheme to game planning to figuring out his receivers cause besides Bourne, Kittle, and Celek,(hopefully a healthy goodiwn from here on out) he's pretty unfamiliar with a lot of his targets. Of course this does not excuse him from some bonehead throws that he made from the first 2 games but I think he will be fine. We will be able to tell once he gets the offense clicking cause this offense will flow beautifully when the potential is realized. Does Jimmy have things in his game that warrants criticism? Definitely. He gets lazy on his mechanics, which is evident by some inaccurate throws he has from time to time and he has a little hero ball in him where he forces unwarranted throws that are costly.

Breida will be fun to watch and hoping he gets better as the season goes on!

Once again great post Marvin these threads are why you are one of my favorite posters on this site

Great Stuff Marvin, and the .Nut boards are imploding!

Agree on Garoppolo, he's struggling with the full playbook. And so is the rookies and 2nd year players too. Keep in mind the WR's and Arby's have to handle the full playbook too now above and beyond what they were doing in that 5-0 run. Getting the OLine and WR's healthy is going to be big going into KC. Brieda developing as a pass receiver gives Garoppolo another option similar to McKinnon and I'm pretty sure Kyle can get *another* Brieda (an undrafted RB) next year to back up Brieda if McKinnon can't make it back 100% from injury. Back to Jimmy, I think the way he's such a fast learner and his incredible off schedule talent, I would say give him till mid season to master this offense to the 80% level.

Agree on the WR's. We need more speed, and we do have it. Pettis is one of the faster receivers in the draft. I don't think he'll be trying out for the Olympics in Tokyo in 2020 but he has the speed to scare DB's enough to give him a cushion and break man to man coverage, it's just that he needs to run the correct routs and get acclimated to the NFL level of speed and competition.

Pass rush, agree. Deforest will be our designated pass rusher (either rushing from the inside or at LEO) we got nobody else. If they can just get a guy that can be a credible pass rusher - this defense will be formidable. *IF* Blair, Day, and Pita develop - conceivably they can move Buckner back inside where he's - as you said - a monster. Otherwise, unfortunately you are right - we won't get one via trade and will have to wait till the draft.

Linebackers, with Reuben back, that should improve. There were a couple of 3rd and mid range where the pass rush forced Stafford to dump off and if the LB's could have tackled the pass receiver prior to the first down marker, it would have been a 3 and out. The west coast offense has always had problems with teams that have excellent linebackers. Who can forget the New York Giants eliminating us from a 3 peat because of their excellent linebackers. With Reuben and Fred, we have the linebackers to slow down Fat Andy's offense. (which is a more stone age version of Kyle Shanahan's offense)

Taylor and Kittle - they are going to be a good combo. Focus on Taylor, Kittle will kill you. Focus on Kittle, Taylor/Goodwin/Garcon will score on you. In other words, I'm not worried about Taylor. He's healthy and his back surgery shouldn't have affected his speed and agility. If defenses are clumping around the middle of the field and smothering the in-between the hashmark routes, that opens the outside zone run to the edges and also misdirection play-passes. Kyle will adjust his offense to counter the counters of the defensive coordinators.

I say wait about another two games before the offense hits it's cruising speed. 49er are averaging almost 20 points a game, and they are still in the takeoff stage, wait till they hit cruising speed - assuming everybody gets healthy on offense - Kyle will blow Fat Andy's offense out of the water.

I'm hoping the kids in the secondary read too many press clippings about the end of last season. Last season Tartt, Colbert and Witherspoon were trying to prove themselves. They need to realize that they should still be proving themselves. Having Eric Reid on the team would send a signal to Tartt and Colbert.

My own theory. Guys like Thomas, Colbert, Tartt and Witherspoon were GRINDING all off season and all seem to be hitting a mid-season like wall at the same exact time. Coincidence?

Like a rookie who has to learn how to play through a longer NFL season vs. college, they'll adjust and push through it.

Hopefully within a few more games they get their 2nd wind and get back to form.

Good point, and I'll just add that the young DB's have faced some good QB's. Cousins and Stafford are not Hoyer and Kaepernick. These guys can pass. So they will suffer some setbacks. The only thing you can do against good QB's in this day of the NFL pass happy rules is to have a pass rush. Picks, rubs, play action passes just put a DB in such a difficult and disadvantageous situation that allowing a QB 4+ seconds in the pocket will turn an all pro secondary to average faster than Brieda can run 5 yards.
It will take Kyle Shanahan like 5 years to get Jimmy G to that Matt Ryan MVP level, and that's only if we luck out on a Julio Jones in the draft.

I don't want to hear these excuses that he's still learning the scheme. We will probably say that next year too unless these receivers step up.

Yeah that excuse aint gonna fly when you pay that much money to a player. He's gotta perform now or its a disaster.

At one point the offense was +17 ahead. It wasn't the offense that let the Lions back into the game.
