Stacks, neither of these teams are going to be in the Super Bowl most likely. Defenses are going to catch up to this read option, and it's game over for most of these type of QBs. CAM being the biggest exception...
Watched my first American football game yesterday, and I was impressed. Entertaining. Couple of questions.
Why the long season break?
Theres up to almost hundred players per team, whats the best way to follow everything? I am guessing just know and understand the key players each team have?
How do you tell apart the tactical play they are going with?
There is a long break because this game is brutal to the body. So it's really that the season is short.
The only way for the game to make more sense is to just keep watching it. Things will just start to click. Reading stuff about tactics and strategy will help too once you get the difference and pros and cons of say...a 4-3 defense versus a 3-4 defense...and the variations of both defensive schemes.
I'm really semi-trolling. Kaepernick is pretty good. He'll probably be ok. He doesn't have to have the read option I don't think. He's got a pretty accurate arm. Can he really read a defense though? He did pretty well last night all things considered. Let's see how he does with 10 games on film though.
By the way, he was the first Niners QB to throw an INT in the SB. Sucks to be compared to Montana and Young lol.
