He's good.  He does so much without even making the play sometimes and people think he's not doing anything.  But if it means Houston or Autry or Muhammad (or eventually Turay) gets to the QB, then he's done his job.

Does anyone remember the play when he flowed to the sideline and tackled the the guy ob?
 

wow.  We were looking down the line and he looked like a LB.  

He is a great player, he creates havoc where he frees up other players too.

He is so dominant.  He is like a man against boys sometimes.  He literally throws people around and makes it look easy.  Each game I become more impressed.  What a great addition.  

well he was the heart of the 49ers Defense Flexing Deforest Buckner GIF by Indianapolis Colts

Ditto on the play referenced, looked like a LB making the play.

What I'm loving is images of 99 and 50 celebrating after high energy plays, I think those two are developing some serious synergy!

The first two quarters of the Jags game, he was just well meh. But about the 3rd quarter he seemed to starting finding his groove. The let 10 quarters his impact has been showing more and more. I think if we’d had a normal preseason, or even just one game to tune up, I think the jags outcome would have been way different

Muhammad has been showing up the last two games.  I believe it was him yesterday forcing Darnold up into the pocket for the safety.  I also remember him chasing Darnold out of the pocket a couple of plays.

Last week he had a few pressures against Cousins.  He is making good on the opportunities given the inside focus on Buckner, for sure.

Stewart needs some praise too. Him and Buckner are the reason our LBers are not getting touched which allows them to roam and make plays.

Small sample and all but Buckner is currently rated as the 4th highest graded DT in the league by PFF with 88.6 grade. We've never had a defensive lineman(starter) rated this high since PFF became a thing if I'm not mistaken.

    • People are assuming its the Eagles offense of the 2010's.    By looking at the between the tackles runners, the unwiggly WRs (all of them), and the strong armed QB the GM is getting for him, I'd say its more like the Buffalo Bills of the 80's
    • I keep coming back to the fact that we hired him because we were scrambling to find a coach after McDaniels stuck it to us.  I don't believe anyone interviewed him that year for a HC position including us on our first go around.  That tells me he was not high on the list that Ballard keeps updating in his desk drawer.  To me he's been okay.  Sort of middle of the road.  Not sure he can get us a SB.  He knows Ballard is his boss and calls the shots.  Ballard gets him the players.  He needs to win with them.   To me this is a big year for him.  He has a veteran QB he knows and whom he is very comfortable with.  The rest of the team is solid and has improved every year.  There is an extra playoff team this year.  I think he needs to make the playoffs.  If he doesn't I think he could be in trouble.  We all like Frank but he has to make the playoffs to keep his job IMO.  If I were Ballard a five hundred season doesn't cut it.  
    • Like I said, he got injured. I'll buy one year, but even then his (Matthews) attempts were low to start the year, and that was coming off a 1000+ year. What is interesting, is that his attempts only increased to norm levels (balance) after he came back from the injury and his AVG was much better too. Sirianni as a coach (not an assistance or staff) spent most of his time at LA/SD. I agree Reich has had more, but LA/SD still is the majority. I don't see him like Pederson, or others. I don't even see him like Wisenhunt. Agreed. I also wonder how much impact he has on the D side. I've mentioned in another thread, that Eberflus came from more aggressive teams on D. 
    • Probably. And being a D1 QB, he’s likely getting laid well too 
    • Its not a blame.  It understanding there is a cohesive philosophy.  There is the here and now, and then there is where we want to be.   My point is that over the course of the past two seasons. there have been rumblings about Reich not being a great HC, notably pointing to play calling.  In that context, the comments are usually in the environment of Reich not being the offensive mind we thought, not being a good play caller, no innovation.  As if its a deficiency on his part, that he wishes he could call better plays, but just can't see them due to some blindness.  And some blindness is holding us back from where we should be.   I think he calls the plays by choice.  I think he wants to be conservative.  I think he feels that's the best chance for the team to succeed, and those are the best plays to call given the talents of the players he has to work with at the moment.  To the extent Ballard is in this conversation, I think Ballard agrees. There is no tension, no different look.   I don't think that calling different plays will succeed.  I don't think having another play caller...unless its someone on the team....is going to work any better.   You can call for Hines on a jet sweep, but it will probably get the same two yards as calling Hines up the middle....because that's who we are right now and Reich (or Ballard) can't really change that at the moment.    KC plays a much different style than BALT.  Tenn plays different than both.  They don't have the ability to change up how they win when their primary system isn't working.  Only NE could do that.
