    Why punt at all then? 4rth and 12 from your own 10 yard line - go for it!!!
    Next year let's see if we can go the entire season with no punts . . . . Waste of a roster spot

    Unlike the regular season, someone has to win a playoff game. Honestly, it shouldn’t have been this close if Shanahan had stopped being cute and giving the Cowboys so many chances.

    SF won the game by kicking a field goal.

    There is low hanging fruit to improve the offense, which is at right tackle. I also am optimistic that in year two of the same offense, Herbert will actually be better.

    The special teams was 28th in DVOA and the only reasons it wasn’t 32nd was Hopkins and Roberts. So they should get better. Defense is where we need to invest heavy capital in both the draft and free agency.
    In an effort to leave no stone unturned,
    BPA @ #17 is going to be WR, a Buckeye or a Razorback.

    Let MW go.
    Sign some D.
    I see midround DTs, EDGE.

    I hated that our defense was so horrible this year. But I’m giving Staley the benefit of the doubt it’s a roster issue given what he tried to do to mitigate the problems during the season. But he does need to change certain things like not giving some of White’s snaps to Murray instead. There’s room for optimism including his in game management, helping Herbert improve, etc. But we need to improve dramatically on defense as well as ST next year, while having the offense stay relatively the same or marginally improve.

    (4:53 - 1st) 4th & 11 at DAL 35 Robbie Gould 53 Yd Field Goal

    (9:40 - 2nd) 4th & 1 at DAL 22 Robbie Gould 40 Yd Field Goal

    (3:03 - 2nd) 4th & 6 at DAL 34Robbie Gould 52 Yd Field Goal

    You can argue that Staley would not have gone for it in the first instance, 4th & 11 at the Dallas 35 (again, he just might have)

    But in the 2nd quarter, on 4th & 1 from the Dallas 22, and again on 4th & 6 from the Dallas 34, Staley would have gone for it instead of kicking from there. Shanahan opted for the points, and in the end, those 6 pts provided the margin of victory. Because the 49ers were leading by the margin of those two field goals at the end of the game, Dallas had to go into desperation mode in their final drive, because they had to score a TD to overcome those 6 pts, they couldn't kick a field goal to tie or win the game. I fear that Staley is going to stubbornly stick to his dogged adherence of analytics - ala Josh McDaniels - and not learn from his mistakes. How Shanahan managed yesterday's game in Dallas - where he was an underdog - is a model for how to win close games in the NFL.

    Did you see that the Chiefs did to TJ Watt last night? Their right tackle was eligible. At the snap, he engaged Watt, put a block on him and slowed him down, then slipped into the end zone and Mahomes lofted an easy pass over Watt's head and hit his right tackle in the end zone. Watt had no clue. I'd like to see Lombardi devise something like to use against Crosby.
    Block? That was a molestation! He tossed Watt aside like a ragdoll.

    I'm shocked Robbie Gould can still kick 52 & 53 yard FGs.

    - What I think is Max Crosby made him his straight bitch. That's what I think ?

    - This illustrates my concern with Staley......

    So everybody in the world knows Crosby is going to have a great game if Norton is asked to be more than he is. Why wasn't there a plan, and if there was a plan, why wasn't there an adjustment when the plan failed? It can't be that hard, as clubs do this to Bosa all the time.....


    And i'll just add that it wasn't the first game in which they were overconfident in Storm Norton's abilities and decided to not give him much help.
    It blew up in their face the first time.
