Niners vs Ravens - Week 13

I like how the announcer talked about that formation being used in college and its effectiveness... then it gets whistled for an Illegal Formation. The backtracking he had to do was hilarious.

That's basically game now. Niners need a turnover if they're going to win.

 

EDIT: Just run it with Ingram, he had a decent read there.

That’s where Lamar’s discomfort throwing outside the numbers shows. Had 3 open guys 

As a niners fan that's watched plenty of Roman/Kaepnernick games that's the weakness of his offense. It's a one read pass to the middle of the field.

I REALLY don't like this decision. Go for as many yards as you can, it's raining and cold.

Tucker has enabled terrible Harbaugh decisions for the last 7 years and he always bails him out - like in the 2012 OT playoff game at Denver

Maybe having a kicker like Tucker changes the calculus

I'm sure it was a factor, but toward the end of the game they seemed like they were figuring it out.

From an article I read yesterday

"Even if the Niners lose — and they are six-point underdogs on the road — the more important goal Sunday is to find vulnerabilities in this offensive juggernaut that can be targeted in a potential February rematch."

That's certainly glass is half full.  If Hawks win tomorrow then San Francisco goes from #1 seed to #4.  Winning the division and getting a first round bye is pretty dang important.

 

This is going to be a helluva finish as both Seattle and San Francisco have tough games left, including a rematch with each other.

That's all QBs though...

What I'm saying is that running QBs are afforded special protection as runners because it's impossible for the defender to know whether they intend to run or pass so they have to try and tackle them w/ like they've got kid gloves on. Gone are the days where Vick or RG3 can just get blasted without reprisal from the refs.

So Martindale has been brilliant all season. Can’t wait to see how he’ll address the edge runs this half. 

Haven't rewatched the game to see what adjustments were made, but something worked.

In the first half, SF ran 13 times for 119 yards (9.2 ypc)
In the second half, they ran 16 times for 55 yards (3.4 ypc)

And 31 of those 55 yards came on the first 3 plays of the second half. After that, they ran 13 times for 24 yards for the rest of the game. Mostert's last 7 carries went for a total of 16 yards: 4, 3, -3, 3, 3, 3, 3. His final 3 carries were on SF's final offensive series of the game, setting up the 4th and 1 pass that was deflected. 

Pretty incredible that the 49ers had only three second half possessions. When you play the Ravens, they consume so much clock (and with most drives resulting in points) that every offensive possession becomes incredibly important.

They would potentially drop to #5. Winning the division will make a huge difference for either team.
