  1. Is this more of a testament to Raheem Morris coaching?
  2. I still don't think Dirk was his call. I wouldn't be surprised if Blank lost faith in his OC picks after firing Sark that he meddled in the selection process. Blank has some Jerry Jones in him.
  3. Its sad how under every coordinator Ryan had been with except for Shanahan, we can't capitalize on defenses with huge weaknesses or dominate ones injury riddled fielding street free agents with our high powered talent. We watch the same struggling defenses get lit up and embarrassed by lesser talented offenses the week after playing us lol. I still don't understand for the life of me how New York giants with washed up Eli and barely any receivers were able to light up the eagles only to watch Sark not use the same game plan on them in our playoffs defeat. I remember Vel or PMF brea
  4. Could we argue that the db coach was just horrible for both Manuel and Quinn? I still think Quinn is very capable. Look at the turn around job he did during our superbowl year when he took over from Richard (i forgot his last name). I am not sure if he is good at making assistant coaching decisions. He let 2 Shanahan disciples go despite knowing he wanted to keep the offense. If he would've retained one of them and we still performed badly, then the organization and fan base would have supported letting him go. He moved a premium secondary coach in Raheem to offense just to promote Manuel
  5. To be fair, Manuel had better results rushing 4 that year. We were giving up egregious amount of completions rushing 3. I think that was where the frustration with Manuel boiled with ppl. He didn't have a feel for his guys when they were finally in a rhythm on defense. He will get cute and take them out of it. Raheem is just night and day better in what ever look we fielded during the second half last year.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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 harde
  9. 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.
  10. With his speed and athleticism, I wonder what he would look like at safety.
  11. 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
  12. 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 s
  13. 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.
  14. 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. Pla
  15. 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.
  16. 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 thrive
  17. 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)
  18. Even when they pass protected, they still looked better than our line.
  19. 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
  20. 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/pass
  21. Yes. I agree the red zone offense wasn't good last year until our coaches finally giving those touches to Ollison.
  22. 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?
  23. 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.
