This. I never understood it but it sure seemed like virtually everyone thought the Niners were taking Jones. Lance or Fields just seemed like the guys in this draft that would have Shanny drooling (outside of Lawrence who everyone knew was going #1 overall).

 

Almost makes you wonder if the Niners leaked it to keep the Jets or another team trading up to 2 from looking too hard into Lance. Seemed unnecessary, but who knows….

I know there is an awful lot of misdirection surrounding the draft. But a double blind bluff? That is some 7D chess kinda thinking. lol

I don't know what it was. I think it may have just been as simple as bad info. One analyst with a good rep got a bad tip and everyone else just ran with it. I mean, if you're the Niners you're not gonna go out of your way to correct it. I just don't see how anyone with knowledge of what Shanny likes in QBs ever bought the Jones talk. Shanny loves mobile QBs.

The 9ers were playing 5D chess, and it worked. Whether by design, or by accident. It worked. Although, in hindsight, as you said, Shanny likes mobile QBs. Jones does not fit that by any measure.

It like some play action with faking faking the fake handoff.

 

I tell ya what. If the Zone Blocking scheme we are going to works? The running game should flourish. And if the running game flourishes, the Play Action should work. If the Play Action works. The whole Offense should work.

 

Works for me. lol
