I don't know if this is a stupid question, but hopefully this is a good place to ask.
Are there any website resources that touch on which plays got called during a game at key points, preferably in text form? I'd like to read about some of how the strategy plays out during a game and coaches/players adapt, rather than just the "pass to gain 5 yards" "rush for no gain" "rush to gain 2 yards" play by play.
I'm guessing it may not exist because it's a lot of work to create AND it would be very valuable for coaches.
The best way I can explain to you is this. Mcvay did not try things consistently enough for them to fail. Sometimes you'll have a coach try to run it all the time on 3 series and go 3 and out and they'll abandon the run because it wasn't working. Mcvay did the opposite. He would have CJ on there to run protect, pass on first, run on first, never ran on third. He was all over the place in his play calling. He never established anything consistently, not even failing.
Goff needs to develop a lot more and McVay needs to start varying up his schemes ffs. I hope we continue to dominate the West and can get into the playoffs despite the brutal schedule. As long as Cooks, Kupp, Woods, and Gurley are healthy our offense should continue to chug. I believe in this team and think we'll be just fine.
It seems like they were pleased with Giorgio Tavecchio who was perfect during that stretch Bryant was out. They carried two kickers the rest of year so they must be confident in him and this was probably in the cards.
Plus gotta free up as much as they can to get Grady Jarrett and Julio’s deals done.
