  1. Well, that certainly sucked.................A tough loss but not the end of the world. Time to move on to the next one. Kyler Murray and the crew really gave us some fits in the 2nd half of the game a few weeks back and I'm interested in seeing the adjustments Saleh makes this time around. Our DL lost some depth with the loss of Blair and with likely missing Jones this game. So the Cardinals will only be more prone to running the uptempo offense against us. I feel like we blitz less to take away the screen game and force Murray to play a disciplined game. Drake gashed us last game and that can't this time around. Offensively, I am not looking forward to another game without Sanders and Kittle, but that very well may be the case. Our bookends have another tough task against Arizona and have to play better than they did on Monday night. Heck, Staley may not even play if he elects to have surgery on his dislocated finger. But nonetheless, it is time to get our run game back on track. I know Breida is likely to be out, but I want to see more of Mostert who was running with a different type of urgency compared to the rest of the backs last game. He's just so damn explosive when he makes his cut and just looks like he glides through the holes. If Sanders doesn't go, the Cardinals may elect to put Peterson on Deebo so interested in seeing how the rook fares in that match up. Sanders destroyed Peterson a few weeks back, but now Peterson will have had a few games under his belt so he will probably be better. After Jimmy G had his best game of the season, he came back with his worst game of the season. It was disappointing to see how hesitant he was and how loose with the ball he was, but he needs to bounce back as he will have three consecutive top level tests after this week. And I expect him to bounce back with the offense making some adjustments by taking more vertical shots than we have all season long. The Cardinals corners play tight press coverage as they like to blitz a lot, so Jimmy will have his one on one match ups on the perimeter. Can we convert on those shots though? I think we start out a bit slow offensively before picking it up in the 2nd quarter and especially the 2nd half and pull away from the Cardinals. SF 30 AZ 13
  2. Week 11 Game Ball?

    So who gets the game ball? Tough decision this week, but I think I'm going with Jimmy G despite the two INTs. Made the clutch plays in the last drive and was pretty much moving our offense by himself after the first few tough drIves. No run game at all and we still ended up with over 400 yards.
  3. It's a smart strategy against this defense but they literally didn't move the ball at all from the 2nd quarter on until the possession they scored a TD. They jumped on us early for sure and we were on our heels, but after that they either had a bunch of three and outs and didn't get far on their drives.
  4. Adding the PI is fine. The dropped passes happen literally every week, good luck playing that game. In that case, we would have had over 400 yards against Seattle....and that didn't happen because our receivers dropped the ball. Murray played "clean" because he mainly threw short passes. That is their scheme for the most part, just a bunch of screen passes or quick throws. His YPA was terrible, and overall the Cards averaged 4.3 per play, which you will take every day of the week.
  5. If Kittle returns, you would think the running game improves just off that and the threat he is. But I'm fine with teams doing this for as long as they want to. No problem if they continue giving our receivers one on one opportunities. I'll take my chances with Kittle/Sanders and the emerging Samuel. Eventually they will stop stacking the box. And don't get me wrong, it was an UGLY quarter no doubt.
  6. Our defense played terrible in the 2nd half of the Cardinals game and were terrible in the first quarter of the Cardinals game. Aside from that, they have been just fine.
  7. Seattle wasn't good against the run either and neither was Arizona. But you stack the box the way those two teams did, then it's going to be hard to run regardless. In that case, our passing offense better make them pay and we better be moving the ball at will against them. Kind of like against AZ after the first quarter. But again, I don't think GB will defend us like that. Pettine has scheme and will play his usual defense.
  8. He dropped that pass sure, but 267 yards and 4.3 yards per play while Murray had a 4.5 YPA is not our defense playing bad.
  9. All this stuff about not shutting down Murray this game is a but curious statement. He had 150 passing yards and a terrible YPA. Not only that, the Cardinals had 99 yards of offense in the 2nd half. He did well with his legs, but still had less than 220 total yards? Cards averaged 4.3 yards per play and had 267 total yards. I don't know, just don't agree with how our defense was bad this game.
  10. Just depends how GB defends us. When you say we shouldn't struggle running against them, I mean it's going to happen if they defend us how SEA/AZ defended us. Pretty much just can't do anything in that case. However, our passing game better light them up if that is case. So was listening to Simms breakdown of the game and heard this statistic: 2nd in rushing YPG, but 16th in yards per rush 15th in passing YPG, but 8th in yards per pass Don't want as big of a pass/run discrepancy as we had last game, but no problem putting the game on Jimmy's arm and let him make things happen. No need to try to establish the run when it isn't going anywhere with stacked boxes.
  11. NBA GDT | '19-'20 | Fultz BACK

    Harden won't get as many calls, correct. But their kryptonite will not be there to slap them around in the playoffs like every year. They get a break there. A series against the Lakers would be very competitive and they have a shot against Clippers, though would be the rightful underdogs in that series.
  12. NBA GDT | '19-'20 | Fultz BACK

    Houston went from 25th in pace last year to 2nd this season. Pretty drastic change there. Those boys are ballin right now and will be a big problem in the playoffs.
  13. The energy has been fine and Kwon was playing in that Arizona game. And the defense was great against Seattle. Just had some tough stretches against Arizona in spurts, but that has to do with their offensive style and the fact we have lost so much depth. Ford/Kwon/Blair/Jones all either missed the entire game or majority of the 2nd half against Arizona. How many defenses can lose four key contributors and keep up the same level of play?
  14. It has do with dealing with as many injuries as we have. Jones/Blair/Ford all banged up or just hurt. Then you have Alexander gone for the season. It's just hard to keep up the same play when you continue to lose depth. I didn't think the defense was bad yesterday though. Cardinals jumped on us but did very little after that.
  15. Matt Schuab? I thought Jimmy finally made it by being on a list next to the great Tommy Kramer!!!
  16. But that's the thing, any time there were any routes took longer than 2 seconds, he was getting hit. I saw the OL still allowing a lot of pressure but Jimmy was able to get rid of it on time or still delivered while taking hits. Yeah, Spoon only got in when Moseley had cramps and missed the end of the series after Jimmy's first INT.
  17. Definitely, but most teams now are giving him that treatment. Better for the other DL and it helps throw off the route of one opposing receiver since they have to chip every play. Maybe to get him some one on one opportunities, they can move him inside on some downs. But I'm fine with it, we saw him get a 1 on 1 opportunity late in the game and he just abused the Cards LT forcing Murray to step into Armstead's sack.
  18. I can't agree with the OL grades. I just think Jimmy's quick release is making it look the OL is blocking very well, but any time he has to throw past 2 or 2.5 seconds, the pocket is completely crashing on him or he's taking hits. He still took hits yesterday even on the completions and that needs to be corrected going forward. Witherspoon played more than one snap and didn't have PBU, but did force an incomplete on 3rd down. I'd give Taylor a slightly better score for his two run stops, including one TFL. Thought he played the run very well. Ward did indeed give up a TD on a quick pass but some blame has to go to Saleh for not playing his DBs closer, especially with the Cardinals style of play. Aside from that, pretty much agree with the rest!
  19. Teams are just stacking the box a lot more and truthfully, there is also a HUGE drop off between Skule and Staley in the run game. And in a lot of the weeks we have been without Juice Check. But even when we had him and Staley, the Seattle game wasn't good either. Anyways, Barnwell commented on our run game and the stacked boxes: https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/28103551/making-sense-2019-nfc-playoff-race-eight-good-teams-six-spots#sf Until proven otherwise, this team will only win games offensively off the arm of Jimmy G. Can't expect the run game to be good, especially with all the stacked boxes it will be facing.
  20. The run game in the last six games post MNF Cleveland explosion: Rushes 195 Yards 690 YPA 3.5 Now, I didn't take out the kneel downs, but you get the main point. THIS is why it has been repeated by many of us that our run game has been pretty trash since the Cleveland game. And this takes into consideration where we ran for 232 yards against Carolina on 38 rushes for a 6.1 YPA. So we can stop saying this is a team that has been winning off the run game or our run game is so good. Sorry, but you have a six game stretch like this, you can no longer claim to be a top notch running team regardless of how many YPG we average. We just had two really good rush games in the first four weeks and after that people ran with the idea this is an elite running team.
  21. How good is Carson Wentz

    He's a good solid QB. Those QBs have a lot of value in this league. You can do FAR worse than him and he has the ability at any season to play at an MVP level or close to it. Everyone would love QBs to be like a prime Manning/Brady/Rodgers/Brees/etc, but that just isn't reality. Just being good is good enough, no pun intended.
  22. 49ers Survivor Pool

    Shh, don't want @StevenK to accuse us of corruption!
  23. Our OL has been pretty bad lately, no doubt. But that also has to do with how teams are stacking the box and blitzing as much as they are. But again, I'm fine with that as once Kittle returns, that adds a whole another dimension to the offense and our WRs will have plenty of one on one opportunities.
  24. The scary part was he mainly got the ball rid of his hands in less than 2 or so seconds and still faced constant pressure. I believe the little wrinkle Shanny added with the quick PA helped give him an extra split second he needed to complete some of his passes.
