We laid the blue print by given up over 400 yards? Wow I feel sorry for anyone who does the same.
The blue print for stopping/containing the pistol exists on numerous college films
And as with most things defensively it comes down to execution and being patient
Before the lights go out and things go wonky for our offense after not being on the field for over an hour, the 49ers were being destroyed. CK had something like 7 yards rushing, 129yds passing and 6 points (2 FGs). They were something like 1-for-5 on 3rd down conversions and had a total of around 45yds rushing combined.
They don't get an extra 34-minute break to regroup along with keeping our offense off the field for over 65 minutes (SF had the ball going into the half) and this game is an embarrassing blowout instead of the classic it turned into.
You really think the league isn't going to look at what the Ravens did before the lights went out, what the Falcons did in the first half of their game and even what the Seahawks did to SF and not build on those?
To be honest, I'm surprised that Cam Newton hasn't said it already. He has a pretty good case too, based on how he and the whole team turned on beast mode at the end of the season.
I think after the whole "Superman" thing, he wants to stay a little on the down-low.
