Pick 32: NFC West: Week 6

Los Angeles Rams

Break down Case’s int play. Tell us wtf goes through his head in your opinion.

This is really just a bad post-snap read by Case Keenum here. His pre-snap read is good, he sees that there’s most likely going to be a linebacker covering his tight end, and that’s a matchup that he likes.
w6lar2
However here, he should realize that the Rams defender covering Matt LaCosse at the bottom of the screen is expecting LaCosse to cut, this allows LaCosse to get past him. However Keenum sticks with his pre-snap read and throws it to a man who’s not open, which results in a tipped ball and an interception.

Bad Play

I received no suggestions for this one. Send me a tweet @jacksonkrueger for a suggestion next week.

The Rams are going to run a fake jet sweep and then a fake handoff on this play. The Rams do this a lot, and so often it causes their opponents linebackers to get out of position, however Denver does a very good job of having each player stick to their assignment.
w6den2
As you see here, the first step is Denver’s secondary’s doing it’s job. So Jared Goff can’t make a quick throw. Meanwhile Von Miller has a highlight reel play here, as he knocks down a ram, and gets to Goff for a sack.

San Francisco 49ers

Failed reverse where Ty gets tackled for a big loss. Looks like it was supposed to reverse to Tae but the defense blew it up. Was it close to working? Did we tip our hand in some way? Does it look like a formation we can use in the future? (either the reverse again or fake the reverse)

So this is a reverse play, I actually think that the end result of this play was to have Devante Adams pass the ball to halfback Aaron Jones. It’s very similar to a play that Miami ran against Oakland a few weeks ago, which I put below.

This play gets blown up almost instantly. This play can only really work if 49ers defensive linemen stay away from the bottom side of the screen, however Solomon Thomas moved quickly and got to where he could break up the play.
w6gb3
As you can see on the top of the screen, the rest of the play would’ve worked, Jones would’ve been open for a big gain, however they couldn’t get the ball to Adams, and the play ended up in a loss.

Bad play

The back shoulder fade to EQSB on the final drive plz

Nothing too fancy here, but worth noting that the two receivers at the bottom of the screen aren’t going to cut.
w6sf2
Several 49ers cornerbacks are going to press on this play, which I personally wouldn’t have done. While it was 3rd and 2, there’s only 15 seconds left, and the Packers have no timeouts. Green bay isn’t going for anything short, and it’s not worth giving up positioning.
w6sf3
As I mentioned earlier, Equanimeous St. Brown doesn’t cut. Instead it’s a throw behind his opposing cornerback. It’s a play that can be intercepted, but in this situation an interception wouldn’t really be that bad. In this case it was a perfect throw, a good catch, and it led to a game winning field goal.

 

Arizona Cardinals

Run play up the middle

-Koiz_01 from reddit

(Only a football genius could break down one of Arizona’s runs up the middle)

How about Christian Kirk’s 35 yard catch in the 1st quarter.

-Kyrlo from reddit

w6ari1
Okay so this play’s going to start out with a pretty standard crossing route. Minnesota’s in a zone coverage which will allow Arizona’s receivers to get past Minnesota’s linebackers. 
w6ari2
As you see here, there’s 2 Cardinals past Minnesota’s linebackers. If I’m going to nitpick something, Josh Rosen probably waits too long to throw this ball. If he throws it now he has plenty of space to make the throw, but instead he waits about a full second, which allows a Vikings linebacker to get back into the play, which gave Rosen a smaller window to throw to. He still made the throw, so it didn’t end up making a difference, but it’s still something he could work on in the future. 

Bad Play

Danielle Hunters sacks are always fun

-Smith22vikes from reddit

w6min
This it the kind of play you can only really run if you have faith in your secondary. Minnesota put’s one man on each eligible receiver, and is going to rush everybody else.
w6min2
Rosen only has about a second to get the ball out, but since there’s nowhere to get the ball to, Hunter wins his matchup quickly, and gets a sack.

Seattle Seahawks

I received no suggestions for this one. Send me a tweet @jacksonkrueger for a suggestion next week.

w6sea1
This isn’t anything too fancy, but it’s a high football IQ play by Russell Wilson here. Oakland thinks there’s been a false start, and starts complaining to the refs. Wilson sees this and quickly gets his center to snap the ball.
w6sea3
A linebacker was supposed to drop back in coverage, but because of the late start he got it led to a wide open receiver. Whether it should’ve been called a false start or not, it’s a great play by Wilson.

w6oak
This is a pretty simple play. Oakland’s going to send 4 receivers downfield, which forced Seattle’s defenders back.
w6oak2
Here Carr could’ve passed the ball to his back, however that’s a dangerous play throwing across his body, and he instead decides to run it himself and pick up a first down.
