BearFan PHX Posted September 11, 2022 Report Share Posted September 11, 2022 It is obvious that the SF roster has more talent than ours does. We won today because the coaching ghost of Tony Dungy is haunting Halas Hall. Eburflus is an even better Lovie Smith. SF beat themselves with penalties, while we played clean. We worked for turnovers. We stayed with the running game LONG past the time when Nagy would have panicked, and many coaches would have gone into desperation mode. We kept our coverage rule breaking route combinations up our sleeve until the 4th quarter, kept it close and then played the cards Nagy would have tried in the first quarter. Had they worked ion the first, youd have woken up the SF offense, and wouldnt have those plays new for the 4th. The Tony Dungy Cover 2 style is to play clean, eat clock, hang around to the 4th quarter, and strangle you out 17-13 - the NFL equivalent of Brazillian Ju Jitsu. I love what I'm seeing from this staff. Yes, we could use a few more draft picks and free agents, but the structure that is being built here is evident today. Great win, much better than a fumbled punt return for a cheap touchdown. We were grinding today. Oh, and even though he didnt have a lot of WRs open, or time in the pocket, Fields began stacking arguments to prove that he is a franchise QB delivering a dirty, gritty and gut-ty performance. All in all a great day, considering the gap in talent on paper. Nice! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
