Of all the coaching criticisms, the one that probably deserves more attention is how pitifully predictable our offense is based solely on who is in at RB. In 102 snaps, McNichols has 6 carries. In 210 snaps, Derrick has 113 carries. I've saw a thread earlier today pointing out plays from last week showing that Derrick Henry is still really bad in pass pro. It's something he's struggled with since coming into the league. Seems to struggle with identifying who he needs to block. He also needs to be in open space to really be valuable as a receiver so he can get a few steps to get going. I agree that we need to be less predictable. A lot of it comes with our personnel/alignments. I watched the Jets game with my brother (49ers fan) and he was laughing at how many plays he predicted run or pass in a row based on the offenses alignment. He then pointed out to Todd Downing that he is allowed to throw on first down lol. We threw a lot more towards the end because we were losing so the stats around that are going to be misleading. I felt like Arthur Smith was predictable a lot of times and just when I thought I knew that he was going to run it again he would call some PA pass and get a big splash play. Even outside of the Jets game where we didn't have our top two WRs, Todd Downing doesn't have that. Everything is always predictable. Even his PA passes... you can tell when they're coming. We're one of the worst teams at generating splash plays this season. Were one of the best last year. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
