Well here it is guys and gals. The very first breakdown video. What a resounding win and man, Brock Purdy looks like the real deal out there.

nice
Awesome

If Brock can continue to get better at manipulating the defense. With all the weapons the defense has to pay attention to with just a turn of his head. The offense opens up. Unstoppable.

If Brock can get any better than he already is at manipulating defenses with his head/eyes, we are talking multiple lombardi's and a HOF career.
Excellent game plan by Mr. Wilks

Really impressed with how Brock is able to defeat zone coverages. I'm not surprised since he did it last season too, but I'm still in the newlywed phase with him, and still find myself surprised at how polished he is with the nuances required to beat zone. PIT threw disguises at him and he was able to handle that. Zach Wilson's showing is still fresh in my mind from last night's MNF game, and he is on the exact opposite end of the spectrum when it comes to a QB understanding what is going on. You could throw Pickett into the same group as ZWilson, but in Pickett's defense, he was going up against an elite 49er defense. Pickett is also faster with his checkdowns compared to Wilson so he kinda looks like he knows what he's doing.

I was hoping you'd break down the 4x1 formation play that had Aiyuk catching the ball on a crosser (you showed it but didn't cut it up, @13:10 of your video). I think that's a formation that will be more popular with how the league has trended towards Quarters looks (Fangio scheme). It breaks the rules of those Quarters coverages and forces a defense to not play it. Kittle stayed in to block and that sucked up the curl/flat defender making Aiyuk's crosser wide open.

I like when you associate one play with another to show how they compliment each other. Point those out when you can because that shows the cohesiveness of Kyle's playcalling. Another nice video, jd.

Thanks, I do try. I'm just happy I got a cohesive video out this week. I've had some sort of horrible crud. Feel like I've had a few too many all week, lol

I heard it in your voice. Get well and thanks for powering through to get the video out. I'm sure it helps cutting up video from a dominant 49ers win.

For that, I'll power through a lot, lol
Sweet!
Seems like both sides of the ball are in midseason form and came ready to play.

One question I have... feels like JTO and a couple other analysts have brought it up:
On that play where Purdy beat the free blitzer... awesome play on his end, but schematically, where should he be going with the football since there doesn't seem to be a hot read? My only assumption is that the QB has to either deal with it, like Purdy did, or he just has to figure out how to throw it away.

We have a few plays where there's really no good outlet. I'd have to be in the meeting room to know what Kyle's thought process is. I'm sure it's a breakdown in protection and he probably just assumes his QB should eat it(give himself up). But, we've also seen that's real tough for QB's to swallow.

It's also possible that one of the WR needs to sight adjust and change his route to something that is a viable option in the case of a blitz. But if the WR doesn't change his route, we (fans) think there is no hot on the play.
