One thing I noticed that stood out to me

There was one thing I noticed last night that I thought warranted it’s own thread given the nature of it.

 

Frank Reich:

 

on the sidelines, he’s usually even keeled. Not a lot of emotion during the game good or bad.  There were several times that I saw him livid. For example, that poor spot where he challenged, he gave the refs what for. 
 

then again when Thomas and McCloud got tripped by the refs on that long throw, Reich ripped his head set off and laid into the head ref. 
 

the same with the PI call that wasnt PI.

 

and then there were a few times where he was giving the LJ what for, particularly on Burton lining up seemingly offsides on multiple occasions. 
 

I’ve rarely ever seen Reich that emotional and that way with the refs.  wonder if all this is the added pressure. It seems that perhaps his seat is actually hot. As it should be. 
 

now if only all that emotion can be harnessed and used on the field and we could start blocking, that’d be great

I feel similarly that his unusual emotional behavior could be because of the pressure he’s feeling. But I don’t think it’s magically going to make the OL block better. That aspect is still our Johnnys and Joes. Play calls, he should take what he calls for the second half and do it all the time. :)

Oh I doubt it either. I’m more looking to see that fire resonate. I’m not seeing the passion from even Big Q this season.

Pretty refreshing honestly. Great to see the d getting fired up after big plays, Reich being fired up on the sidelines, and Ryan showing some emotion. So contrary to what I see on here sometimes the guys do care and aren’t going through the motions. Just need to solve this o line issue. That and Ryans fumbles.

I think it has a bit of the prime time cameras that we got to see a little bit more of things then on a normal broadcast.  I've seen him livid sometimes but not as much as stated. 

 

How bad does your team have to be when u are leaving when they are winning or tied.

I’d be frustrated too if the dudes on the field can’t perform even the most basic tasks of football, and then the refs go right ahead and screw us over and over.

 

Last night was a flipping crayon eating competition.

I think maybe he is feeling the pressure.   Not enough though since he is coming out with the same play calling strategy.

Kenny was definitely jogging on a lot of plays but he did have a nice TD saving break up

    • Football is a complementary game and you will see how the Ds of the teams like the Bills, Chiefs, Bengals do when they don't have Allen, Mahomes, Burrow pulling the trigger. All of a sudden, the situational and opportunistic D they have to play can't be done anymore and they have to evolve to a play making D and you would be surprised that they aren't that leaps and bounds above the Colts' D.    So, no, it is not a matter of opinion. It is a fact that this can be a playoff caliber D just not of the SB contending kind till the pass rush is consistent and the scheme evolves like Dan Quinn evolved the Cowboys' D to do blitzing even if he had the pass rush talent.
    • Am I the only one who watches the games and can feel the screw ups about to happen? Like Everytime they get the lead or start to build some momentum, I get this voice inside my head that says “okay any minute know they’re going to have some horrible turnover that’s going to change the course of the game”. Every time it looks promising I say “just wait for it. It’s coming”. That’s how bad this team has become. It’s predictable. Start off playing decent and maybe get the lead, but eventually they’ll collapse. I wonder if they’ll really win the Texans game now.
    • I agree with this.  But the D is not at all good enough to carry this team. 
    • How many full seasons has Jimmy G ever played? At some point, the QB who could be on GQ, has to show he can be available as much as he can play QB.    The true question is - are you going to build a team that gives him all the weapons he needs? Or are you going to build an elite D that allows him to make plays only when necessary.    Here is a stat to chew on:   Per PFF, Garoppolo is the only QB since 2006 with at least three playoff starts to average fewer than 25 dropbacks per game. Garoppolo is averaging 18.7 dropbacks in his playoff career.   This goes to show you that if ever you want Jimmy G to win a game on his arm, you are more likely to be disappointed as Kyle Shanahan has managed Jimmy G's high floor/low ceiling well enough with a stellar run game and the D Lynch has put together.
