  • Our Red Zone Performance

    We left 12 points on the field yesterday. I was very unhappy with alot of the play calls in the red zone. We have the ability to move the ball down field at will, yet when we get in the red zone it almost seems as if Gilbride moves away from what works very well and 3 times we ended up with field goals on a very short field. Whats the deal with his play calls?

    Eli is the one deciding run or pass down there.

      I think this one will be lost in the euphoria of the win but it is a reason for concern. Rolle's INT's gave us the ball on the 10 yard line the first time and on the 5 the second time and both times we could not gain a single yard! If this is not a reason for concern, I am not sure what is. Killdrive's lack of imagination and his predictability is apparent. I just do not understand why Coughlin does not address this because it happens consistently. I guess some things will never change. Good thing our defense showed up and the secondary covered SF's WR very well. Props to Fewell's scheme. It worked for once!

        If that's the case then someone needs to step in and fix that because whatever it is, it is not working.

          Are you sure? Its not like the 2 min drill. I do understand Eli can call audibles, but I dont think Eli was making the play calls yesterday. I could be wrong.

            Eli is always making the calls. He gets multiple plays in the huddle. That's what "kill kill" means. They are going to the #2 play.

              Eli always has at least one option to audible

                I've know about making plays and feel that KG doesn't have that many plays for short distances. I think he needs to make some that are designed for short distance. One of the things he needs to add is the delay run and some screens. He adds those to his play calling will give him more options. Those two plays I explained are set up plays and look like other type of plays like the draw play that looks like a pass play. You also have fake draw plays etc.

                Another thing could be big receiving talent. Receivers who are good at blocking. Those type of guys can come off their blocks and get at open spots mixed with the run plays can help in the redzone a lot.

                  That's what we did last week against Cleveland. Cruz pretended he was going to block and then ran a slant route I believe.

                    I'm curious if anyone has looked at QB redzone effectiveness. I do think Eli struggles down there a bit, but perhaps he is around league average

                          Our red-zone scoring percentage is exactly what I feared coming into this season. Just awful play-calling or lack of execution? Not sure, but it seems like it's just a lack of execution to be honest. Not many players open at all.

                            Do they have just passing? I figure out crap running game would give them a low percentage

                              They have struggled some but the 49ers defense is very good. Have to give it to them. They could have just folded especially after the 3rd interception.
