Not much to say other than Shanahan should go. He said in the pisser of a presser after the game that he plans on calling the same plays going forward with Lance in the game should he come back. In other words, he’s more than ready to risk Lance’s health to win games. Lance has played 3.25 games and he has 53 rushes. Sure, some are scrambles, but most of them aren’t.
Shanahan gives no fucks about the guy he traded three first round picks for. He seems hell-bent on getting the QB of the future hurt. I simply do not get it. And then he has the gall to say “it was a football play” “other teams do it all the time” “Baltimore and Buffalo do it”.
So? Does Buffalo run Allen between the tackles 3 times in the 1st quarter? I was pissed at Shamahan after the Super Bowl loss. I was more pissed after the NFCCG last season. Same blown leads, same failure. How do we start the season? Another 10 point collapse. Shanny snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Now this. Folks are saying that these play calls obviously means that Lance isn’t ready. But then again, how do we know this? Have they done anything more than run a vanilla offense with Lance for the most part? Of course. Shamahan has nothing on Vanilla Mike Nolan. Shit, look at our 2nd half. We couldn’t have played more turtle-like. Shanny never met a lead he didn’t want to fritter away. We get to the red zone and do we play action? Nope. Run run run, blocked FG for TD.
It felt like another 2nd half collapse was on the way but Seattle is vastly inferior to the Rams or Chiefs, and they didn’t take advantage of our wimpy offense. What should be a well-deserved gloat of beating the shot out of the Seahawks is instead an indictment of our head coach’s pig-headedness.
Nice game by the defense. Talafoa Hufanga has played phenomenal these 2 games. Pass rush was decent.
