Disagree.

The 3rd and 1 shot that he missed to Jordy against the Niners was the absolute right call. He had 1 on 1 and if that was completed, it would be a TD and everyone would be saying how awesome the call was. He missed the throw.


Disagree. There were two defenders back. Jordy had one of them beat by a step or 2, the second was right with him.

That 3rd & 1 was a drive killer, unless Mike McCarthy was willing to go for it on 4th down, which he wasn't.

That is exactly the play I was thinking of when I said in another thread that I hated punting on 4th after throwing deep on 3rd & 1. Get the first, then take a shot deep when it won't end your drive if you don't complete it.

The only way Mike McCarthy is going to start handing off on 3rd and 1 is when the RB's prove they can make the yard.

As far as throwing on 3rd and 1, as i remember it, Bart Starr did that ALL the time, and most often it turned into a big play. But that was because the Packers had killer RB's back then so teams had to watch for them to run for it. That opened up the pass. If Benson (or whoever is in there) starts showing that they can make the hard yard, LOOK OUT! It would open up the big play for them!

I blame the Oline more for not being able to get 3rd and 1. They're horrible, the entire "battle line" moves to our side of the line of scrimmage.

Actually, I have to retract this partially. I liked it out of the old U71. Jennings would be out left, the right side would be stacked. If the safety helped out the CB we'd be 1 on 1 blocking for the run and if the safety cheated up the Jennings would be 1 on 1 deep. It was a run-pass option, based on the QB read of whether the safety was coming up or deep.

In the case of the 49ers, QB wouldn't have thrown deep because two guys were back. We'd have run it there.
