a timeout in the situation. Rookie QB mistake.
and I still would have taken the penalty;
Pretty easy mistake to make in the heat of the moment, however.
or check the link, but check the link at your own risk, i don't know if it was written by someone "who knows the game"
like gold late in the fourth quarter.
why not take a timeout in the third quarter? What if it had led to a scoring drive.
larger point. You more than likely are going to need those timeouts at the end of the game.
No offense, I think you are upset your team lost and lashing out at everybody.
Sorry the team of your youth didn't win.
so, of course, he must know more.
You should get your information from someone else. Herm is an idiot.
He may not be Ty who really was amazing in that he didn't appear to be good at anything related to football. Herm maybe is a master of TO strategy and his problems were in other areas.
On the side bar, I didn't see the whole field but perhaps the Ravens were taking away Davis?
covered. Throw it up in the air. They are big. Throwing to the smurf 3 straight times. Loser calls.
he would have been in better position to make the catch were he not interfered with, twice.
I don't think you really understand the game.
coming. Few if any refs are going to call that and basically give the SB title to a team. Not happening.
a) inside the 10 yard line it's tight. It's a big boy's game.
b) Throwing passes inside the 10 yard line can be similar to rebounding in the NBA It's about body position and elevating and fighting for the ball at its highest point.
c) the scouting reports said Kapernick's first option is Crabtree. (they threw to him 3 straight times). FWIW, best hands on the team, that doesn't hold water in this instance. It's not going to be a Jackie Smith moment. It's a 5 yard TD pass.
d) Scouting reports said leading into the game Kapernick had overthrown 7 of 8 passes to the endzone prior to the Superbowl.
e) Based on point D, you are asking Kapernick to throw a timing route (ie in a certain place at a certain time) that's a low percentage completion based on those stats. On 4th down, do or die no less.
f) I think a pass to like Rudolf which won the game @ Purdue or a pass similar to the jump balls to Eifert would have worked.
g) On third down, Moss was open and waving his arms, see link, but again, Kapernick's first look is usually Crabtree, which isn't bad at midfield, again not so much inside the 5 yard line.
Again, just my 2 cents, and for the record, I was rooting for the 9ers to score there.
his comments on Timeouts were spot on. The logic and strategy are sound.
Third Quarter time out on first down that's frosh HS stuff. Come on, admit it.
They chocked it up. Deer in the headlights.
timeouts are timeouts; if you let the game get away from you because you're afraid to use a timeout in the first or third quarter than they're worthless at the end of the half anyway.
They choked, sure. I've said it numerous times. But your example (the first down) is bad. The other timeout was the worse error.
16 minutes no small feat.
He's a good analyst. Upbeat.
So I don't know how Jim Harbaugh is with clock management, but I was surprised both by the 3rd quarter timeout and the timeout on the final drive. In fact, on their last offensive play they barely got the play off and I thought they were going to have to burn their last one. You see it time and again where having three timeouts at the end of an NFL game is critical. I suppose that is part of having a first-year starting QB.
Colin took much time adjusting the run play to the left.
He was OK at saving them in the 3rd quarter, but it's hard for me to remember a Bears game when they didn't squander at least one TO in the 1st.
Then there was the Washington Huskies game when Ty Willingham spent a timeout between the touchback on the opening kickoff and UW's first offensive play -- with 15:00 left in the 1st quarter. I think UW was hosting Cal and it was in 2005, Ty's first year in Seattle. Good times.
