Hey, does anyone know NinerHomer's opinion on the jumbo formation? I haven't heard him tell us yet.
Sighted*Lol short sided?
Under your definition, the New England Patriots are a run first team. They ran the ball 45% of the time this season. So are the Green Bay Packers. They ran 44% of the time.Any team in the NFL anymore that runs the ball even 40% of the time, is considered a run team.
Exactly. We have a balanced offense. The stats show we have both an efficient run game and pass game and have a pretty even pass/run ratio. There have been games where we have come out trying to establish the run and vice versa. We have also been ahead in games more often than not, which means more running.We are more along the lines of a 50/50 team

Do you guys really think we will be a run first team very long with Kaepernick under center? Wouldn't it make sense to open up the pass game, or at least use more quick slants like the traditional WCO?

We need our run game to open up our passing game imo. Especially with manningham out
First...I pretty much agree. The line is built to run...in my opinion...an o-line with multiple first rounders and a former tackle playing guard...should also be built to be able to protect the passer.
I was correct that you wouldn't understand what I was saying. Not your fault...you're just not all that bright. What I was saying is that I don't like running the ball from a "HEY DEFENSE WE'RE RUNNING THE BALL" formation. I want a formation where every play in the book (pretty much) is an option. When they run the ball like that...they get to use that outstanding run blocking o-line without using Davis and Kilgore (who are not starter material lineman) to telegraph exactly what's going to happen.
I realize one drive does not encompass an entire season...but I'm sure you realized that the Niners actually scored vs Arizona when they stood up the TEs and made the D cover everybody, right?
You act like the jumbo package is our base offense. Our base offense right now is that retarded pistol formation. That's what we are in a good majority of the time.
Yes the pass opened up against the Cardinals, but thats because we didn't abandon the run. Our offense is based and surrounded by our run game
