    Even then not every WCO is the same. They're all different you should know that. We would still have growing pains.

    The principles of the WCO footwork is the same/similar.  Everything revolves around the quarterback planting his foot on either the third or fifth or seventh step in the drop.  Koetter’s offense is very very different… And so is Mularkey’s. That’s why I said the easiest fix is having Knapp run the offense

    True but that's not getting us a first.

    True. Hoped it wouldn't be like this but it is. Changing OC was a bad call. Honestly this probably happens even with someone else.

    I can’t agree with that. If we were keeping the West Coast offense, we needed to hire a West Coast offense coach with Pedegree and time in the system. Kubiak would’ve been ideal. Scangerella would’ve worked. Make a call to see if we could get McDaniels off the 49er staff.
     

    But dirk Koetter is running his offense with WCO terminology the last few weeks.  It’s not his terminology so there’s no surprise that things are being lost in translation.

    That is fair....I think DK has been OK but like everyone he can be better ....I am a firm believer in everyone can always be better.

    The receivers seem to be struggling with the option part of the option route concept that we like to run.

    The offensive line is work in progress with all of the shuffling.

    The good thing is (and the broken record keeps skipping).....everything is fixable......the issues are little things that are leading to big issues....if we tighten little things down and the offense as a whole gets on same page then good things will be ahead.

     

    We have seen this team rattle off multiple wins in a row with with the coaches we have on staff (unfortunately we have seen them stumble multiple weeks in a row as well) so there is precedent for improvement.

    Good post

    He looks like he doesn’t want to answer questions.  However if there is a disconnect in that lockeroom these guys will keep it inhouse!

    probably right.  
     

    But when you get the fat contract  you so desperately wanted, you have certain obligations to the team and your city to do things you otherwise would prefer  not to do.
     

    Be a professional.  Answer the tough questions with the class we know you have.  
     

    I will get off my soapbox now

    Definitely need more guys like Rico!!!

     

    Honesty, he was dragging the other captains out for the coin toss.  They looked uninterested then and it showed in the game.  Rico will leave everything on the field every single play.  If the other 10 guys on both sides of the ball had similar passion, this team would be tough to deal with

    I'm not in the interest of going down history lane.

    I'm thinking about the team and one offseason having a stale OL and Defense(some returning injured players)...

    So far, the DL is doing more than the OL...IMO.

    One has been injured. There.

    We're really comparing Burns and Lindstrom right now?

    Yikes.

    May as well go on his twitter and blame him for the OL.

    Lindstrom will be a Pro Bowl level player.  McGary will also figure things out.  But this season is universally being viewed as a chips all in for a championship season.   

    Seems odd to have so much turnover amongst coaches, players & scheme if you’re going all-in

  7. Ryan needs to understand the difference between an identity and a label.

    Saying you want to be A Scoring  Machine  is like saying I want to be the greatest show on turf. It means nothing.  You need an identity to become the label.

    So if you want to be labeled a scoring machine, go find your identity and get it done

    O line more important imo. Got 2 try to protect the Quarterback. D line next offseason.

    Edge rusher next season.  Can’t afford edge in FA so it will be our #1 pick....unless we have the #1 pick

    McGary will be fine. He was behind the ball from the procedure anyway and has been solid in protection so far.

    Brown and Carpenter were only short-term options and we’ve needed them.

    OL changing 3 spots and having injuries rotate 2 of them was gonna be a challenge early in the season.

    And, the only way you get Risner is trading down from 14 to pick up another pick and move up from 45.

    That requires 2 trading partners and is even more hindsight than this.

    We weren’t going to long-term fix the DL and OL in a single offseason.

    We have 80 million invested in our OL & DL in 2020.  And they still need to be fixed?  
     

    Meanwhile the Patriots about to win another title with their OL/DL spending being half of ours and bottom 6 in the NFL.   Time to coach up the talent on the team

    Play with a lead and sack numbers go up.

    Period.

    He was all over Wentz vs PHI. We need to make teams try to throw more.

    Of course, his run D being consistent on setting the edge had to improve but overall the run D isn’t so much a concern compared to week 1.

    Offense start fast and D make teams take more risks instead of dink/dunk 2 weeks in a row...


    It is a valid point. The one game we had a lead is the only time we had multiple sex

    That's another "lOnG dEvElOpInG" route concept. Still doesn't work because of the blitz. 

    Those long developing routes only really thrive if they are set up with a solid run game.  If you never run the ball your PA becomes useless

    McCoy is better at center, there's a reason he only played guard twice in college. But sure, so what's the plan for tackle? Ty? 

    He could play OG this year and step in for Mack next year.  Saves us 10 million on the CAP.  Plan ahead..don’t be reactionary

    Because the titans blitzed and we didn't pick it up well enough. What do you think is a better idea? Give us a play design with route concepts. Should be easy since you already know the play call and the coverage. 

    How about  not having 3 of your 4 pass catching options not simply run vertical routes.  Layer the routes.  Yankee route would have been nice there.  
     

    The motion was good to get Hooper open but unfortunately Ryan’s head never looked left
