What To Watch For Sunday

What to watch for:

Will we see Alex Smith again on sunday?  Will Haskins be over his illness? Will all3 QBs be active?

I know by Sunday, much can change…but as tonight the followimg numbers is all you need to know about the 2020 WFT through 5 games:

Week 5: 8 sacks, 9 hits

Week 4: 3 sacks, 9 hits

Week 3: 3 sacks, 3 hits

Week 2: 4 sacks, 9 hits

Week 1: 3 sacks, 10 hits

To give these stats a basis: Green Bay Packers with potential MVP Aaron Rodgers lead NFL (4 games) with only 3 sacks allowed.  Pittsburgh Steelers (5 games) with potential MVP Ben Roethlisberger is tied for 2nd with 6 sacks allowed and sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles was sacked once and hit 3 times.  That is about 1 quarter fora WFT QB so far this season.  Are we missing Bill Callahan yet, or Trent Williams, I say no because it is only 5 games into a new system.  Yet, the 31st ranked offensive line is right in correlation with Haskin’s QBr no matter how many detractors!

Until Allen, Haskins or Smith is given time to have the: OFFENSE AT WORK (yes, the corny FedEx scoreboard messaging on many downs–who controls that? I am looking for a job) , we will not see much of anything coming from any WFT QB.   Furthermore, scrambling or putting QBs on the move and running do not seem to be the answer either unless done very cautiously.  Maybe the JT’s rollouts but get ’em out of bounds or down.

Haskins was injured last year running against NYG.  Allen last week was injured.  Have we learned anything from RGIII.  Our QBs need to stay under center and mainly in the pocket and only take off when they can get down or out of bounds or untouched.  RPOs with Haskins and Allen, please (after Vick and RGIII).
