Let's look at some selected stats from the 1st half of yesterday's game...

Ratio of under center to shotgun plays: 33% vs 67%

Ratio of run plays to pass plays: 29% vs 71%

Under center run average yards per play: 4.2

Shotgun run average yards per play: 2.0

Under center pass average yards per play: 11.5

Shotgun pass average per play: 4.4

Sink in yet? Okay, let's look at our touchdown drive. During that drive, we ran 5 under center plays. We ran 1 play out of the shotgun.

So that's 1 possession with 5 under center plays resulting in a touchdown.

We had 6 other possessions in the 1st half that did not result in scores. In those 6 possessions, we ran a total of 4 plays from under center. Four.

The game started off with quick short throws, with a couple of intermediates thrown in. Cam completed his first 6 passes.

Considering all the above information, can anyone provide me with a reason, any reason at all, why Chud should be the OC of this team for even 1 more day?

That data is both depressing as hell for this year, but encouraging for the future when we get a competent OC/HC.

I'm seeing a pattern here. It seems like whatever DOESN'T work, that's what this coaching staff is going to do regardless of results.

Chip Kelly specializes in the read option offense. I don't want to take any chances, we need a guy we know will run a pro system, who wouldn't dare try to take a college rule system and mash it in with the big boys. If we hire a coach from the college league, we need to go after a guy like David Shaw. Look at the miracle Jim Harbaugh made with Alex Smith. David Shaw would be the next best thing. So any coach who runs a pro system will do.

With all that said, why doesn't Cam (and the team, but Cam specifically) rebel against this coaching staff? Why does he not go into their office right now, and tell them this crap offense is not working? Who cares if they bench him as a result, it will just make their firing all the more quicker. As things stand right now, Cam is taking all the heat, and man is this kid getting scorched! All I can is if I were Cam, I would rebel against this offense, and start calling my own plays. I just haven't seen this kind of desire out of Cam, and it makes me think he may not be our guy. Yes, he has all the talent in the world, but I haven't seen the essentials of being a star QB just yet. The pocket presence, the anticipation of throws, the reading of defenses and so on.

So we do some that works extremely well on the first drive and then we run away from it... yup, that sounds like Chud.
