IMO, this is coaching.

Hawk is one of the worst, but TWilliams, Burnett, Shields, Jones, Jennings exhibit poor technique — trying to tackle high, without taking out, or wrapping up, the legs. So many times this leads to a runner churning for extra yards, extra first downs, and a score — and it also wears out the defense.

Are they afraid of injury? a la Collins or Woodson?

Are they ceding yards, thinking they’ll eventually get an interception?

Even the defensive line tends to stand up a runner, instead of putting him on the ground — maybe in hopes the whistle is blown?

In addition to bad technique, I’ve seen the defense stand around when it looks like a play is contained — I’ve seen these same plays pushed for extra yards when the opponent’s oLine comes to help. I’ve seen that much more than the Packer’s D swarming to a standstill, and pushing the pile back.

I’ve read in the summer, that they can’t risk tackling in training camp, for fear of injury. I guess I have a different mindset: you can’t risk NOT tackling, for fear of not doing it well during the season.

The O line got pushed back all game. How many times was Rodgers hit? hurried? Had to thrown to soon?………Saying they had only 1 sack as proof the O line played well, is foolish.

I believe he was going to try to return it. But yeah, that was the moment everyone who said “don’t but Cobb back there” should have been afraid of. And it hurt us…badly.


brad:

Oh, and what about that muff by the packers early in the game when they were up by 7 and gave the niners an easy tie. Why the fuck would anyone try to fair catch a ball inside the 10 yd line? Stupid, stupid, stupid!! To me, that was the turning point in the game…

This needs to change, or the coach needs to be changed, something different needs to happen.

I don’t remember if he did, but it used to be several every game…

By the 2nd half when they allowed him to throw the def had a fork in them and the game was more or less over.
