it came on the heels of a completion to Aiyuk. Williams got badly beat on that previous completion. And they had to roll help towards Williams and left Ramsey on an island versus Mike Evans for the same reason in the previous game because Williams was not getting his job done in man coverage.

 

It is not just that one play, QBs are seeking out where Williams is being lined up.

 

Ramsey should be on an island a lot lol...

 

Not saying Williams is elite. He's decent though. 49ers have 3 great pass catching options, so anyone not named Ramsey is going to struggle IMO.

 

Also, we have 2 of the better offensive HCs in the league. A lot of creativity, even within some obvious limitations (like Jimmy G). Mix that in with 2 great OLs, several great weapons (skill players), and even great Ds (both are very good) will struggle in places. I'm sure Shannahan has Williams' name circled simply because his name isn't Ramsey lol...

Seems to me he should be easy to defend. Take away the middle and screen passes.  But no one even tries.

haha , he gets rid of the ball so quick you can't defend it, that is the key. It is simple football 101, he is smart and knows how to win.

Yea the people that say Wentz is as good as Jimmy G are dreaming lol. He may not have a ton of elite traits but does all the right things and just seems to be able to make the plays in the clutch when they matter. The guy is 31-15, and 4-1 in the playoffs with the 49ers.

I know, SF about to wipe their feet on a loaded Rams team.

Reich and Ballard have stressed since the season ended need to pass the ball. Jimmy is not it. Lol. Colts don’t have SF defense. He would get ate up in the AFC.

Im not saying he is the answer for us, im saying he is way better than Wentz

I would agree. He is been really good at being decisive and on time with throws especially in critical situations.

 

Bottom line he makes good decisions and complements what they do defensively well.

 

Also, 49ers defense (especially pass rush with front 4) is a level above anything we have put out during the Ballard era.

lol Jimmy's Win Loss record is insane given the amount of hate he gets for being mediocre

 

He's still pretty limited. Top 5 OL, good weapons, good D. 

KS does a pretty good job of setting him up for success.

Take away Jimmy's weapons, his D, and his top 5 OL, and put him behind the 3rd worst pass pro OL with a D that lets mediocre QBs look like pro bowlers... It's just a great comp.

With all the young QB in the AFC he would get slathered.  He gets away with it in the NFC.

I would say Brady, Rodgers, Stafford, are easily comparable to Mahomes, Allen, Burrow. Just older, more experienced.

I don't know, Wentz beat him at home with some great throws in a bad weather game.

Are you forgetting about week 7 this season?

It was a drowning rain storm, plus teams change as the season progresses week 7 in ancient history.

 

Also in terms of points allowed our defense was only slightly worse then SF the last 2 seasons. They have 2 weapons, maybe 3 if you count Ayuik.

 

Yes you can use the Oline stat to try and bail out Wentz again but I promise you Wentz doesn't have the winning "it" factor Jimmy has. You act as if the rest of the team everyone but Jimmy is winning games and going to the NFC Championship game, maybe to the SB twice in the last 3 years.

 

He is for sure a part of the equation. When things are on the line and matter he wins, Wentz does not. That goes back to his Philly days as well.

49ers D is a chippy and borderline dirty bunch, I feel like. Too many shots after the whistle but it gets into the Rams players heads and they retaliate. The 49ers D also is not afraid to put pressure on refs to call penalties.

 

I remember Jeff Fisher getting tired of Rodney Harrison’s cheap or late shots. So his TE crack blocked Harrison and he went on IR for the rest of the season. Peyton hadn’t beaten Patriots with Rodney Harrison playing for a full 60 minutes. So it worked out in our 2006 AFCCG. 
 

That is why refs need to take control of the games

Both players had to deal with that weather. Wentz played better.

 

And the SF defense gets way more pressure consistently than ours.

 

And you can’t discount our terrible Oline pass pro just because it ruins your argument.

    • You can’t help those who are determined to complain no matter what.  
    • I mean calling things what they factually are that’s a real spin job by you lol.
    • I think the confusing part for me is the utilization. This is it for Campbell. This is his final season to prove he belongs in the NFL and right now the colts are not doing him any favors if their not even attempting to get him into space and let him work. 
    • I’m not sure you and I are watching the same defense.   Through 3 games the Colts have played 12 quarters and one full 10 minutes overtime.     IMO, the Colts defense has looked good for 5 quarters and the OT.    I’d say the 4th Q of the Houston game plus the KC game. But the defense was unimpressive for 3 quarters of the Houston game and all 4 quarters of the JVille game.   So that’s 7 bad quarters versus 5 plus good quarters.   That’s hardly coming attractions for a #1 defense.    Compounding your argument our pass rush is a long way from being a top 10 rush to be feared or respected.   They will likely get better this year but enough to help make this the number one overall defense?   Right now this feels like you’re watching our games through Blue tinted glasses.     Hey, I’d be thrilled if you’re right, but for right now,  sorry, I just don’t see what you see. 
    • There were a bottom 2ish to start the season...  They lost to Wentz... and a bad WA team. They beat a bad team, Indy, who let their QB set a new career high again (now twice). Totally out coached.  They beat a highly ranked team, with a QB broken ribs lol... who only goes as a far as QB takes them.
