I hope Harbaugh doesn't pull a Martz/Hostler and have Vernon Davis, the best offensive weapon we have via the air, stay in to block. Please don't tell me we're going back to that ****.
It's starting to see more and more like the only offensive coordinator that actually understood our players and how to use them the right way was Norv Turner.
VD may have been in to block more than normal, but he was still out running routes on crticial passing downs against Dallas. The problem is teams have finally just said enough, and are doubling VD quite reguarly. Thats how Delaine got that TD pass....because VD was running his patent post route up the seam that drew two defenders and left Walker being covered by a LB. VD said himself in a interview this week, teams have been even more intent on not letting him beat them. The only way to counter is that other guys on the outside will have to step up and make teams pay. I wouldn't neccesarily put that on Harbs or Roman solely. Sure they have to call the plays, but guys have to be able to get off of press coverage and make plays. VD is really the only viable weapon we have in the passing game with Edwards hurt. Im actually surprised it took teams this long to double VD.
Looking ahead Eagles maybe down Vick and Maclin. Eagles offensive line has their own pass protection problems. 49ers may have a chance to hang in this game. Curious to see what the early line is on the game.
49ers haven't beaten the Eagles since 2003. I don't expect them to win this contest. They are just too well coached of a team. And the run defense will struggle with McCoy, who isn't a north/south runner where the 49ers dominate like they did Benson today. The last time we played the Eagles Kolb was playing and we got our asses kicked on national television. They still have Samuel, Asomugha, and Jackson.
The 49ers offense would have to play their tail off, and actually cross midfield before the fourth quarter. Oh and cut out on the penalties.
