  1. I think he probably means for the team to start hitting their stride on both sides of the ball regardless of record. 2016: even though we started the season with a good win/loss record, the team especially the defense didn't start hitting their stride until Quinn to over second half of season. 2017: the new defensive coordinator (forgot the name of Quinns buddy) didn't really start hitting their stride with the defense until second half of the season as well.
  2. Luckily we have a new secondary coach. I would like to see what he looks like with competent coaching. I can't seem to think of a player his style reminds me of. Browner with ball skills?
  3. Great point Athell. As much as I get on Matt about this aspect of his game which contributes to our red zone efficiency woes, i also think it has as much to do with Matt beating himself up for his high turnover rate his rookie year for being aggressive (i prefer this Matt by the way). I think coach Smith coached him out of it. That's why he only attempts these kind of throws only when the game is on the line or back is against the wall instead of making this part of his regular arsenal. If you play as if you are scared of throwing interception all game, those high risk throws become even harder to make when needed. This is where the elite qbs shine over Matt to me. The break the defenses back with these difficult high risk throws because they trust the wr to win even when the defense knows its coming. They make the back shoulder throw, fades, jump balls, even a good jump ball pass on go routes that isn't wobbling in the air for the defender to gather and make a play on the ball.
  4. I've always wondered if Dirk and Ryan watch cut ups of the 49ers offense so they can add to the play book to evolve the offense. Heck i wouldn't mind if they steal some things from Andy Reid too.
  5. With his speed and athleticism, I wonder what he would look like at safety.
  6. I totally agree with how Kyle used Julio. I was shocked to see Julio getting schemed open. I will miss Kyle. I wish we would have brought in someone else asides from Dirk. I don't know why we didn't poach any of Kyle's assistants after we fired Sark. I know Gurley will eat. I'm more worried once we get either injury along the oline or Todd. We don't fare well. We always blame injuries when we don't do well. Injuries are going to happen. Yes there might be a drop in production but the teams with very good coaches somehow help their units overachieve. Whether that's through masking through scheme or plays... or simply coaching the next man up like Raheem did when he took over.
  7. Yet why is it hard for our coordinators to do these things? Everything for our offense airways seem like we're plodding and hoping to get a first down. Other teams with less have players running wide open multiple times a game while our players have to execute perfectly with almost any margin of error just to get 5 yards. I laugh when I'm getting ready to watch a game with my friends and the announcer mentions how the opponent is missing 2 corners and are fielding a bunchof street free agents. 4th quarter with 4 minutes left, we're in a close game barely reaching 20 points🤣. We somehow squeak out the win. The same opponent gets blown out or loses convincingly the following week😂
  8. Yes. I think he had a phenomenal rookie campaign. I think the playoff loss made him gun shy ever since. I relent during that year, all we had were Roddy and turner. He took chances on those go routes with Roddy even if his defender was stride for stride with him or in the end zone. Turner was the number 1 so he was guaranteed to get his touches. Then Matt to Roddy was number 2. I wish we can get back to that formula.
  9. With the exception of 2016 and 2015, we always have problem getting our playmaker the ball. Heck I think Tony Gonzalez was probably the main one that overachiever in Dirk's scheme. We always hear excuses that teams are double our triple gaming Julio yet, Antonio brown, DeAndre, Marques Colston, Micheal Thomas and the list goes on....are getting schemed open or favorable one on one matchups so they could thrive. I don't know if it's a Matt problem or play caller problem. We've had some stacked teams only to get easily shut out or drastically underperform with everyone except for kyle. Playoff Teams with much less are executing much better than us on offense. It's just annoying.
  10. I don't understand it to the level of Vandy Vel PMF KOG and the rest of our geniuses on the board. I remember how in one of PMF threads he talks about how well Kyle's mind works by integrating so many parts in to every play design to use as chess pieces for home run plays later during the game. That depth and creativity isn't there with Dirk. It flashes at times but it requires everything to be so perfect at every position to get average results while kyle helps his unit out with so many disguises.
  11. That would mean taking audibles away from Matt. According to this board, they want Matt to call the plays instead. Kyle doesn't allow his qbs to audible because the percentage of run plays will decline. It was evident last year when Matt checked out of them with those run pass option plays. This is something Dirk will have to enforce this season. I really hope he is studying san Frans plays during this lockdown. He needs to literally steal every run play they ran last year. Anyways, we can only hope. I just don't know why our guys always have blown assignments in the run game but thrived in executing blocks at a high rate when Kyle was here. What does that say about Chris Morgan's ability?
  12. We seem to be having that problem very often with hiring average or below average coaches on the offensive side of the ball despite allocating majority of our cap space to it during Quinn's tenure. I'm still angry we didn't retain any of Kyle's guys after he left. Quinn mucked up there. I don't know why TD or blank didn't step in to smack him upside his head before hiring Sark. I have no faith in Dirk. I didn't during his first stint here and I still don't now. I just need him to do enough against playoff caliber defenses and hope our usually under resourced (before Dante Fowler happened) to overachieve this year in to top 5 minimum top 10 again but this time from start to finish.
  13. Even when they pass protected, they still looked better than our line.
  14. This is why i question his ability as an oline coach. Under him, we need 1st round picks and elite talent at every position just to be good. Yet been garland and others have filled in seamlessly for their injured line in San Fran and didn't miss a beat. That's the sign of a good/great coach to me. Injuries are going to happen in the NFL but we keep granting this man excuses as to why this unit keeps underperformed. A good or great coach get their guys to usually over achieve. Heck look at the job Raheem did mid season with no trufant, what we thought was a regressed Oliver and Rico/kazee at safety. Kyle Shanahan injury or not continue to churn out overachieving offensive units even with an injured oline, back up qb, no receivers etc. One goes down and there isn't much drop off. Same with belicheck and Harbaugh in Baltimore. I would have fired him by now Chris Morgan by now. Our cast-offs are outperforming our guys with Kyle. They aren't missing blocks or anything but our line filled with first round picks keep having blown assignments. Something is wrong!
  15. You guys don't think it is more of an Arthur Blank problem? Even before TD arrived, Rich McKay was forced to over pay for Peerless price because he wants his qbs to have an embarrassment of riches on offense in order to sell tickets. I hated the philosophy shift after Ryan's second year with Mike Mularkey. Yes it ended with an embarrassing playoff loss to the giants but I've always felt if an offense were to be built around Ryan, it has to be the model from his rookie year. Top level runningback (Mike turner) as the number 1 focal point and let Matt Ryan and his number one receiver/passing game feast. We don't need hall of fame talent at every skill position on offense. Arthur blank and front office keeps viewing Matt as if he is Peyton manning. While his intelligence might be as elite, his arm strength and playmaking (some responsibility falls on the OC as well) isn't. I see him as a rich man's version of Jake Delhomme posing as Peyton. I love Jake Delhomme by the way. Excellent game manager which is what Matt Ryan should be. It allowed the panthers front office to build him a line and excellent running game with a defense. Only difference is Jake delhomme didn't eat up nearly as much cap space. My thing is if majority of a teams best talent and cap space is used on offense, then the qb is expected to carry the team to the superbowl and win it. We have first round picks at almost every position on offense but the board keeps complaining if........ he only had a defense. While he hasn't had oline performance Peyton and Brady have had, he has always had plenty of weapons for majority of his time here. He should be putting up numbers higher than Brees (who has had less). With the exception of 2016, his numbers, considering the amount of weapons he had had, i can't imagine what kind of year brees, peyton, Aaron (who has had a bad oline too), big Ben and brady would have had. If we don't get the ring this year, I would like fresh perspective from a new gm. I actually like TD but I think we might have a Jerry Jones-like problem in Atlanta with Blank's meddling. I don't mind moving on from Ryan so we can actually build a defense with solid line, runningback and weapons. Conclude the rebuild with a Jake Delhomme caliber qb.
  16. Yes. I agree the red zone offense wasn't good last year until our coaches finally giving those touches to Ollison.
  17. Thanks. How do you see him being used here? Can he play SAM? Or is he strictly a nickel rusher? Why wasn't he more productive in Miami's scheme and what makes him possibly good for ours?
  18. I thought that he would have at least had 3 very solid mainstays on the line by now. Asides from Grady, who else? Back in Seattle the had Avril, Bennett, red bryant, i forgot the other guy but they were a solid 4 that contributed. We haven't had any semblance of that at any duration of his time as coach here. I think he is a good coach still working things out and finding his way. I just thought it dline would have been a major strength under him at the minimum. Don't know why that hasn't materialized.
  19. Why do you think Quinn hasn't had a much success with the dline compared to Seattle?
  20. So if he is bad at seeing the edge as a defensive end, doesn't him moving to OLB also require him to also set the edge? Won't that also mean he will have to occasionally play coverage? Do you think he has the athletic profile to make that kind of transition? I don't know much about the guy.
  21. I'm so confused. Isn't SAM the same as the OLB position that Devondre and now Mykal walker was drafted for? If not what's the difference?
  22. Is he an excellent blocker that can fill the Luke Stocker role?
  23. Hey Kayoh, What's your evaluation of Marlon Davidson? Does he grade well in your formula? And at which position DE or DT?
