Now those are only 2 plays tho, so take as you like
See, that second gif is what I mean. It's a simple corner blitz that Smith should have picked up on, yet he completely runs the play as is with no pre snap adjustments/hot routes. It was like that the entire game.
This is horrible.
-those are just 2 plays
- you're nit picking
-the play was not designed for those other wrs
-he was pressured
-Can't look around when he has to scramble
-(more towards you my man) What has geno done (but i heard, from jets fans, he's looked way better than sanchez and ryan is in love with sanchez, probably because sanchez has sexier feet)
Yeah, they look like crap. Glad to see the acquisitions of Alex Smith and Eric Fisher seem to be paying off.
I didn't really watch Fisher so i have no comment on that one
There is no excuse for the offense to struggle as much as it did last night.
It's true that Alex is playing on a new ream with a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator and a new-to-him offense, but they had already played a whole 14 play drive against an awesome Saints defense. It's not like they were playing the defending Super Bowl champs. The 49ers only won the NFC last year. There is no reason that starting superstar running back Knile Davis in place of pedestrian Jamaal Charles would be a setback for the offense. It is all Smith's fault that wide open receivers were dropping some of his perfectly thrown passes. I know opening day is still 3 weeks away, but the Chiefs might as well just cancel all of their practices between now and opening day. Why bother? If they aren't clicking on all cylinders yet, they never will. The Chiefs won two whole games last year with one of the worst offenses in the NFL. They should look like Super Bowl contenders by now.
MMA/O, your expectations are completely unrealistic at this point. I expect the Chiefs to struggle even into the first couple of games of the regular season. By the 2nd quarter of the season, they should start to look pretty good, but not yet.
The good news is that their defense and special teams should keep games close even if the offense does not play at a very high level early on.
