San Francisco 49ers - Collin Kaepernick & Madison Baumgartner - The Lesson - November 2014 News Blog

San Francisco 49ers could win easy or play more bite your nails games after their bye week in October. Compare for a moment the 49ers with the San Francisco Giants. This year the Giants supported their strength and used it wisely to win another World Series. Their hot hand was Madison Baumgartner, a 25 years old pitcher with great talent and expertise. Imagine if the baseball league, his coaches, and other players all talked Madison Baumgartner out of pitching the way he does. You throw too many breaking balls, or too many high pitches, or not enough change ups... etc etc. Can you remember what people said about Kaeperick and his Pistol offense? The Pistol was created by him and his coaches at Reno?  The national and local press, NFL stars, and other players were negative about Kaepernick using his Pistol in the NFL. I remember when Kaepernick was named the new starting QB for the 49ers?  The 49ers offence was making other teams look bad with the Pistol executed by Kaepernick according to his expertise and talent. People wanted San Francisco to go back under center and pile up running plays from the I or drop back pass or play from the shotgun or do anything except get better with that Pistol. Even if they used the wild cat... anything else except the pistol. Why? Because the pistol is for conditioned athletes who destroy you. This is not good if your defense is designed for drop back passing and slow developing run plays from under center. The exhausting high paced pounding of well oiled pistol offences is best done with a smaller faster almost full backs  as a guards. The center too is an aggressive fire out zone blocking animal in a pistol. Tackles push and move the piles forward at least 3 yards, every play with zone blocking. The Pistol QB is a ball handling magician who is also your fastest back on the field with a passing attack too that hits 20 to 30 yards down field every time the defense starts playing the run too tight. When the pistol is not running over or past you in a seam then it passes. Kaepernick and and his coaches at Reno perfected the Pistol, without high profile backs and receivers. They punished all they opposed including an undefeated Boise who they dethroned from their Number 1 ranking on national television. Kaepernick perfected Pistol execution and ball handling... at Reno. Camera men and players had a hard time finding who had the ball and this was the case on most plays. Kaepernick always continued as though he had the ball after he handed off on the quick hitters up the middle to his power back and then when he kept the ball 1/2 of the defense was still tackling the power back. Now the 49ers pistol is poorly executed, he never continues to run the seam after he hands off to the power back, and still the 49ers account for more yardage per play from the Pistol than from any other formation, especially when they execute even a poor read option play.

San Francisco 49es Loose - run best plays least again - Yawn

Most teams study what works best, practice most on what they do best and run their best plays more than marginal plays The San Francisco Roman offense is not paying attention to play calling. Not all run plays are equal. Not all pass plays are equal. Vegas odds makers can do a better job on play selection than San Francisco does. Sad to see them running under center and empty backfield shotguns when the pistol and the power sweep would have won the game EZ. Zone block read option pistol to Gore 3 times, a keeper, 2 sweeps and a 25 yard pistol play action pass TD. EZ Recipe.  Cut bait or catch fish. Officials stunk bad.

San Francisco 49er Play Selection and Bad Officials Create Bear Victory

Bad San Francisco 49er play selection and officiating best describe the Sunday night BBQ enjoyed by Bears who feasted on a suffering Colin Kaepernick crucified by referees and wisdumb from the 49er Roman Offense. The Roman Offense continues to display stubborn insistence to not re-run what works, insisting instead upon running again and again what does not work. In the 4th Quarter the predictable 2014 San Francisco 49er offense did not attack the Bears from their pistol but retreated instead using predictable drop back high risk plays. Does the play selection smell fishy to you?
The facts are simple. Gore, Kaepernick, and the team prosper when they attack fast and hard with their pistol forcing defenses to react and get tired. When fat O linemen retreat in drop back pass blocking, that is uplifting for defense. Unpredictable pistol zone blocking schemes are hard work for defenses and yields twice the yardage per carry as compared to QB under center plays. Pistol plays do better in the NFL than do QB under center plays. Wild cat or shotgun zone blocking run plays are less effective than pistol zone blocking run plays. These are facts. Why do facts play no factor in the 2014 choke perfected, Roman O strategies?  Is the San Francisco 49er offense predictable? Why not throw to Crabtree again on the last play of the game, in a win / lose situation.... surprise, he did not make the catch - oh my such a surprise?

San Francisco 49ers 2014 Preseason

If the San Francisco 49ers had perfected the Reno Pistol Offense in 2012, they would have 2 super bowl rings and be playing for a third in 2014. Will the 49ers plan, play, and achieve caution with predictable mediocrity in 2014? - aka - Roman Offense. The Reno Pistol O can score 40 to 50 points. Hyde, Gore, Kaepernick each can rush 1200 yards this season. Kaepernick can easily throw 4000 yards -20 TDs and 5 Int if defenses must stop their pistol. Kaepernick is freaking fast - Gore and Hyde bust guts - receivers can score from anywhere on the field.  Simple truth.

PS - Many fast, fit, young offensive linemen in the league now who can zone block well - replace overpriced, fat, drop, back linemen who hold out. Trade the Boon dog for a high draft pick. Recruit an expert Pistol O coordinator plus 2 fast, fit, zone blocking linemen..
