Watching Marcel Harris play makes me wonder if he's that much better than tavarius moore

This makes me wonder how other teams will adjust to Kyle's predictable playcalling.

I hope we look like an all new team Saturday, or we might be in a bit of trouble.

We'll be ok - Shanny will adjust.

Yeah, not worries there either. It's not like Kyle is Chip Kelly and after 2 years has shown almost everything he has. He's been calling plays a along time and it's stuff that's been run for over 30 years and still works. He just has to be more varied in the situation.

Dan Quinn also showed how he knows Kyle very well.

Nice breakdown of how they wanted to double Julio but didn't execute.

One thing I wanted to mention about the offense. I think they miss Goodwin doing what he does in terms of threatening deep. I saw ATL squatting on inside, short/intermediate routes, which is where Deebo/Kittle/Sanders/Jimmy like to operate. There were a couple slants that got contested and I think that was the ATL gameplan - cheat on those in breaking routes. After watching the 49ers offense all season, that's what I'd do too if I was a DC. Force the 49ers to beat you outside the numbers.

The 49ers can continue to work the middle part of the field if they have someone that can help them clear it out, which is why I mentioned Goodwin. He can still run a seam route and take a safety with him. Well, not anymore since he's on IR. I think the offense needs to replace Goodwin's speed this offseason or opposing defenses may begin coming into the game with this same gameplan.
I saw where Greg Cosell said in the Atlanta game, our O-line "got handled". I never thought our o-line was an area of emphasis in the upcoming offseason because is it pretty good 'enough'. BUT, I'm starting to think how much better we could be if we had a Dallas Cowboy type o-line.

I agree with this and had thought about this recently. Feels like they kinda fell out of love with Goodwin and I always sensed the IR thing is just a cover because they don't like him. But yeah, everything we throw is short to intermediate and usually over the middle. Smart d-coordinators will figure that out. We need to throw a few go routes just to loosen things up.

I hear your pain but I feel like Kyle is anything but predictable. I mean, sheesh, he gets national credit for his innovative play calling. BUT, I feel like his playcalling in the Atlanta game was kinda bland.

Well they play different positions. So there's that.

Agreed. They probably also knew that our interior OL had no chance against Grady so they were going to jump anything in the short to mid range. Similar to when Kittle and Sanders were hurting... teams are gonna force the outside receivers to make a play. 49ers have to prove both that they can block long enough for an outside receiver to run the route and also that the outside receiver can beat single coverage.

They cant load the box as much as when Kittle was gone but they are certainly going to sell out for the underneath routes until they get got.
Well, that depressed me. Thanks.

Maybe more Richie James? Not Goodwin fast but at least can threaten deep.

Or a healthy Pettis?

We really miss Tartt. I think he's the backbone of the secondary.

Id love to see more Richie James... he can get down the field fast but can also take a WR screen to the house if given some daylight.

But for whatever reason coaches are loyal to a fault with some guys. Or maybe they dont want to chance losing James on special teams exposing to a bigger injury risk if he played more WR. James needs more playing time in general, Wilson needs more playing time instead of Coleman and Staley needs a shorter leash if he keeps getting exposed.

Maybe Kyle is being a mastermind and will break out James and Wilson in the playoffs where teams will have little film on them. But probably not.
One of the problems with Goodwin is he isn't a great route runner and he is on the small side so it's easy to bump him off his route which screws up the timing on any deep throw. Jimmy has enough problems with deep throws so he doesn't need a small Goodwin thrown in to make it worse. He's only 5'9" and 180 lbs. I like guys a little taller or at least tougher that can battle for the ball since a lot of deep throws are often contested unless someone blows a coverage or falls down like the one to Sanders against NO.

Agree 100%... the few times we've seen Richie get some opportunities I seem to remember him being great (attacking the ball and being aggressive at the point of catch) or breaking some long runs...

Not sure if his issue is just not digesting the playbook well or run blocking or what... hope they are just saving some explosives with Richie in their back pocket for playoffs.

But at the very least they could use him as a decoy or to stretch the field.

Even if won?

Even if Juan?

Your cold-blooded, 49ers808 and Kittle.

I want the 49ers to be cold blooded the rest of the way mayo. I'd cream my pants if they are
