DC Posters will get a look at good scheme vs bad scheme Saturday night
A vast majority of the paint chip eating dolts on here don't seem to think offensive scheme/QB play plays a role in production.
Saturday night, the GB Packers, who happen to have a brilliantly designed offense with a top 3 QB, will be facing the 49ers, who have one of the worst designed offenses in football with a talented, yet inexperienced and raw young Quarterback.
Pay attention to the formation groupings in this one. You will see the Packers spread it out wide and often, to get favorable matchups with guys like Randall Cobb and James Jones.
You will see the 49ers trot out a bunch of boring, base pistol formations, and see them flounder to come up with a way to move the ball through the air because they're sending fullbacks and halfbacks on patterns rather than wide receivers. You will also see some jumbo formations, that really do nothing to help the running game.
I can see it now; The Packer receivers are so GREAT! They won a lot of matchups against weaker nickel/dime corners and linebackers! Look at the STATZ they put up! They also threw the ball 45 times!
The 49er receivers suck! They didn't produce out of their boring 1 WR offensive sets! They threw the ball 24 times, why couldn't dey match the packer receivers PRODUCTIONZZZZ?????
This may be beating a dead horse, but this is as good a time as any for some of you to learn what I am talking about. Total stats in a vacuum are worthless when grading a player's worth.
For example, the best wide receiver on the field for this game is Michael Crabtree, and it's really not that close, but it's pretty much a guarantee one of their 4 receivers is going to have a better statistical day than him due to QB/design on offense. Vernon Davis is easily the best TE on any of these 2 teams, but it really wouldn't surprise me either to see Jeremichael Finley have a better day.
A Rodg and Mike McCarthy. A lethal combination that's going to take Kaepernick/Roman to school.
