Overall: Hard to pick on a team after a nice (pre-season) win over a legitimate team, but I had a chance to re-watch the game on TV. I'm still a little concerned about the running game on both sides. I feel better about the D cause we're missing Watt and Cody, but I'm not feeling great about Bradie James. I don't see him bringing much over the first two preseason games, and he missed a tackle badly against the 2nd team 49ers offense. On the Oline, both Caldwell and Newton had some big missed assignments against the starters. I'm surprised that Caldwell still hasn't developed the technique at this point in his career. Letting DLs get penetration is an instant zone-blocking killer. Here is my first team, play-by-play review: 1st Offensive Drive -Bad showing for Derrick Newton and Antoine Cardwell. Derrick Misses a block on a wide right play, his defender takes Arian Foster down at the line. Arian could have broken it in for a gain of 3-4, but no excuse for Newton not getting on his guy. -Antoine completely misses his cut block after Chris Meyers set it up for him. The missed block allowed the 49ers NT to get penetration--a no no in the zone scheme. -Derrick Newton misses his block on the screen...on a corner. Don't know why he didn't blow the guy up as he had the angle, Caldwell also looked slow down the field. 1st Defensie Drive -1st run play: Good running play by the 9ers. Mitchell misses a reaching tackle, but I'm more concerned with Bradie James. He gave up once guard was on him, if he at least brings a little momentum into his block he can at least narrow the hole and save 3-5 yards. -2nd pass play: Mclain missed his assignment. -1st screen: Cushing makes a great tackle to save any positive yards. 2nd down: Bradie James gets on Vernon Davis. Davis drops the ball, but it looked like Bradie had him shy of the 1st down marker. 3rd down: Great pass rush. Cushing blows by his block on a blitz to disrupt. Jamison's motor comes from the right side to take out Smith. Sack should be cut in thirds. 2nd Offensive Drive: 1st running play: Looked like a good defense was called. No lanes opened up. 2nd running play: Derrick Newton and Caldwell got locked up on their one man. Neither released to catch the linebacker behind them. Poor technique/bad communication on their part; someone should have split off. False start on Owen Daniels. Looked like cadence timing. 3rd down: Foster came up one yard shy on the dump off. 2nd defensive drive: 1st running play: Ouch, both Jamison and Sonny got handled at the line. James's play looks pretty uninspired, gets pushed back for 2 yards without much of a fight. 8 yard run. 2nd play: Nice recovery. Sonny gets nice penetration, Bradie James cleans up. 3rd play: Missing Watt. Jamison got busted up. Brooks Reed didn't pick up the draw, and took himself out by going wide. 4th play: Glover....glover....glover....come on man! Alright, I'll give you one since it's pre-season. Pass play to Crabtree: Nice work by Mclain...nicely timed defensive shove. 3 and 10: Good pass rush, but Antonio got his arms up. Not sure why Antonio didn't get lower, but it was a little ticky tack. 2nd and 7: Crick looks pretty good, and held his ground. Cushing makes a nice play to get him down. 3 and 4: Decent run stop. 4 and 1: Close, but 9ers get it. 1 and 10: Six yard run, J Jo finishes it off. Good power football run. 2 and 4: Holding on the 9ers. 2 and 14: Nice penetration by Barwin should have gotten him. 3 and 14: Kareem got caught star gazing, should have been on Moss quicker on the short grab. 4 and 1: Great stop by the defense. Antonio gets immediate penetration and Dobbins cleans it up shy of the marker. 3rd offensive drive: 1 and 10: When in doubt...trust Andre. 1 and 10: Daniels drops an easy one. 2 and 10: Short run. The O-line still has some timing issue...but that should be expected with a new RT. 3 and 7: Good pass pro, but Schaub held the ball too long. No completion. Field goal: And the kicking battle ensues... Commercial: Umm is any one actually interested in an action film about a bike messenger? Really?
