I have no idea what this blocking scheme is.  It looks like the TE, 87, screws up his blocking assignment and he just pushes behind the LT.  Probably a Wham block?  Anyways, Hood (+1) gets off his block and Fuller (+1) sticks his nose into the open gap along with Foster (+1) who takes on the LT

Interception.  I’m not sure what to take away from that drive.  Hood-Ioannidis are the starting DTs in the Nickel front.  We stayed in Nickel vs 12 probably because of the insane distance to 3rd down.  That put Fuller in the box.

Punt.  Nicholson not able to play in the box almost cost us at the end.  Drop bails us out.  Otherwise, good coverage, the TE Slant was a great call that caught us in a slant and split zone exposed Hood and Dunbar while catching McClain with a double.

Slot WR is passed off to Foster and works over to the sideline.  Foster in conflict with a Dig open behind him that the QB doesn’t see or doesn’t have a window to throw to.  Allen (+0.5) finally gets in the QB face (pressure +0.5) Forcing a bad throw.
S25 2 10 1 1 2Hx2 Nickel Split Pass(1) Dig 19
Good throw beats ok coverage as ILBs had 10 yard drops and Dunbar (-0.5) probably could’ve been a little tighter with his coverage but pressure was the main issue (pressure -1)

This run is designed to cut inside of Kerrigan with a puller who can’t make it.  I think the wing back is supposed to motion over pre-snap.  Kerrigan (-1) gets kicked and driven out, widening the hole.  Brown comes in on a blitz, McGee (-1) doesn’t communicate and takes on the same blocker.  That could be on Brown but McGee doesn’t even come off the block once it happens and when he does he whiffs on the RB.  Moreau and McClure in at CB and FS.  Breeland (-0.5) is in press and doesn’t keep the crack off of Brown, sheds and whiffs as he fights underneath the 2nd crack.
S30 2 5 1 2 I-Form Str 2Hx1 3-4 under Run OZ -3
Line slants left and gets underneath the double teams.  LT and LG try to overlap block and McClain’s stunt causes one to go back and pick him up and that destroys the combo.  They need to keep going, the Back will just have to outrun that penetration.  Anyways, Foster (+1) splits in between the now defunct double and Smith (+1.5) shocks and sheds the backup FB and strings the play to the sideline, DJ (+0.5) dodges the lead TE and gets inside and upfield.  Moreau (-0.5) gets worked by the crack.  Brown (+1) clears through traffic runs the RB OOB.

DJ and Fuller have flats, Foster and Brown (-1) have hooks.  Brown misses the tackle after the catch. (pressure -1)

Scoop on Allen (-0.5) works up to Foster and he gets sealed.  Anderson (+1) kamikazes and goes down, drawing the RT attention.  Not sure why the RT didn’t just work upfield.  Ioannidis (+1) holds the double and frees up Brown or DJ (+1) to make a play.  DJ sticks his nose in his gap and gets the stop.
S48 3 1 1 2 3Hx1(tight) 3-4 bear Run Split Zone 1
Backers shift over to prevent the TE slant that got us earlier.  McGee (+0.5) submarines through the Tackle.  Hood (+0.5) takes on a double and Foster is allowed to creep up behind him and covers the backside A gap.  McClain works the RG to a stalemate.  Galette sets a soft edge.  Dunbar tries to get a jam on the crack, but DJ (+0.5) already beat it and penetrates, meets McGee at the RB.

They run this with a double going to Kerrigan-Breeland.  Breeland (-1) isn’t the best run defender.  McGee (-0.5) gets doubled and removed off the line, tries to recover but whiffs on the tackle.  Kerrigan (-1) gets reset outside and the gap is big.  Brown (-1) blitzed the A-gap and almost got a TFL but whiffed.  Hood (-1) gets off the line to give backside pursuit and just stops short, tackles nothing.
W30 1 10 1 2 2Wingx2 3-4 under PA Pass(1) TE Wheel/Go -11
Talked about in the preview, we shifted our formation so DJ plays to the 2 TE side and Bree to the 2 WR side.  Smith (+1) bumps the releasing TE on the wheel, Breeland looks to get beat by a go route, but that’s an opposite hash throw.  Foster and Nicholson double the Go (coverage +1) Kerrigan (+1) has time to work around his block and get the sack.
W41 2 21 1 1 3×1 Nickel even Pass(1) Dump off 8
Brown on a blitz  then stops, Brown (-1) (pressure -1) pocket doesn’t even get dented.  He voids coverage behind him with no one to pick it up.  It was 2nd and 21 so maybe that’s the assignment, still makes no sense for Brown to just stand there.  Hook zones were covering deep, good.
W33 3 13 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(1) Snag Inc
Foster bumps the seam route, and maybe gets away with PI.  Fuller (+1) (coverage +1) in the WR hip pocket.
FG.  Moreau and McClure in at CB and FS in the 3-4 before Nicholson came back.  DJ is exclusive box safety.  2 tight wing formation forced Breeland to play run D, busted coverage compliments of a exotic pass D and poor coverage from Bree vs a RB leads to 3 plays for 30+ yards and 3 points.

SZ designed to cut back behind the crack block.  Hood and Foster force the cutback, End around freezes Kerrigan who then gets kicked out by the Hback.  McGee (-0.5) gets washed down by the double.  Brown clears A gap before attacking downhill, but is met by a crack which Breeland (-1) fails to replace/does so half-assed.  If he doesn’t want to replace at least get hands on the crack blocker.
W45 2 5 2 1 I-Form 2Hx1 3-4 Run OZ 4
They put a TE to the boundary and that bumps McGee out to over the tackle instead of over guard as we normally do in our under front.  This allows the guard a free release to the second level but Brown (+0.5) makes him miss and would have a stop at the line but isn’t able to wrap up.  Foster (+0.5) slams into the FB at the line to force the cutback to Hood (-1.5) who can’t keep gap control and gets washed down the line by the faintest of a double, he essentially loses a one on one to a center block.

Breeland injured on the play.  Great play call here with 2 RB in the back field.  McClain slants inside the guard to take away the dive play, Foster (-2) fills the same gap, instead of replace McClain.  Kerrigan (-2) can’t fight through a WR crack and there is the edge with a pulling tackle vs Breeland to the outside, tackle goes low, wtf, and injures Breeland.  Not having 2 box safeties hurts us here as we are unable to spin them.  DJ and Brown cover the same gap.
W25 1 10 2 1 2RB Back 2Hx1 3-4 under Run Zone Read Option 1
Smith is being read, Double works Hood to Brown.  McGee (+2) slants inside the tackle and gets the TFL.  They ran it to the strength of the under front, that’s just dumb.  They were probably hoping the option to the backside would open up a huge cutback.  McGee erased that.  Foster replaced and filled, tripped and fell, but replaced correctly at least.

This is their play where it’s Power blocking up front and the puller is the TE who gets the shovel based on Alex Smith’s read of the DE.  Almost like an inverted veer.  Preston Smith takes the RB so QB pulls and shovel is the read.  Except Ioannidis (+1) shoots his gap and ruins the blocking and the puller’s path.  Kerrigan (-0.5) follows Kelce whose the puller/shovel man but isn’t quite sure how to read this play if he did, he could’ve gotten a PBU/TFL.  Pulling guard whiffs on Spaight as DJ gets under his WR block and gets held, and Spaight (+2) who either lost his gap or made a genius move to bounce outside of DJ to lose the pulling guard and then shovel back inside to his gap and make the play.  Could be Spaight was just playing off of DJ who slanted inside.

RB lined up outside draws Breeland.  Confusion ensues after the slot motions between Fuller and Brown (-1.5) as fuller expects Brown to bump down and Brown is either getting the call or trying to switch sides with Fuller.  It’s zone coverage on the back end so I’m assigning the screw up to Brown.  Ioannidis (+1) blows up Kelce’s shovel path again.  Power blocking removes Allen (-1) from the line and it works its way back to the backside backer–Fuller in this case–Spaight (+0.5) dodges the puller and Brown hustles to regain lost ground.  Smith plays Shovel/QB I would’ve liked to see him attack the outside here but I guess we all got jobs to do.  Breeland (+1) with a monster hit that sets tone and saves yards.  Maybe even a TD.

Punt.  We have played cover 2 to the boundary every time, gives us Breeland as a flat defender vs RB release.  Smart move as the RBs would probably beat our backers in flat coverage.  Ioannidis has blown up that Shovel pass both times they call it.  He’s probably reading pass set blocking from the LT and motion from the TE and WR to his side.   Foster looks like the shoulder is bothering him, his snaps are reduced and he’s not playing as aggressive.  Both big gainers came from that LB spot (Spaight and Foster) failing to execute.

Anderson playing off the line, lined up over Kelce, he takes flat coverage.  Norman (-1.5) (coverage -2) just gives a huge cushion like he’s expecting a post route.  WR sits in the zone and gets an easy 21 yards.  Underneath the Brown (-1.5) needs to come off the drag route and get depth in coverage.

(coverage -4) Kerrigan has any crosser/flat and DJ (-1) is covering dirt to the 1 WR side and we blitz from the 3 TE bunch side.  Wtf is that.  DJ needs to bump his drop over.  Brown (-1) fails to pass off coverage and get depth.  Kelce gets underneath Breeland who had over top coverage, with no help underneath.  Everett (-1) is late in giving help, should’ve had an INT or PBU on that throw if Brown took away the inside TE.  Instead Everett had to attack that route, was still late in diagnosing the play.  Blitz took too long (pressure -1)
Touchdown.  They out formationed us a few times on this drive.  Fuller was a run defender as 12 saw nickel.  And our 34 got spread out a few times with mixed results.  Brown’s coverage hurt us on this drive.

Double team gets worked as Allen (+2) slants inside then bounces back out essentially 2 gaping the guard and absorbing the pulling backside guard.  LT has to (switch up his?) block to playside LB and whiffs as Spiaght (+2) okie-dokes him and makes the play.  Blocking assignments were a little different than a basic power play or we screwed up their keys.

Corner blitz from Dunbar with Nicholson taking over his man.  Line slants left and Brown comes in as well, RB forced to pass pro.  Kerrigan has the wheel, Ioannidis (-1) needs to keep contain as he’s the new outside man, tough task though as he’s doubled.  Spaight (-3) with another mistackle/lack of closing speed that affords them another 20 yards.   DJ (+0.5) with a nice takedown.
R48 1 10 1 1 2×2 Nickel Split Pass(2) TE Seam 20
we should really think about dropping all cover 2.  Kelce picks us apart again (coverage -2).  Brown, Spaight and Fuller are underneath and one of them fails to pick up the seam as crossers absorb all their attention.  Anyone of those 3 (probably not Fuller though) look to be possible culprits, not sure who to minus.  Probably Brown.
R28 1 10 1 1 2Hx2H Nickel Even Pass(1) WR Flat Inc
They try to stretch Fuller’s (coverage +1) flat zone with a corner flat combo.  Same with DJ to the backside (pressure -1)
R28 2 10 1 1 2×2 Nickel Split Pass(2) Post/Go Inc
Kerrigan keeps Kelce and RB in to block.  That probably deserves a plus 1.  (coverage +1) Smith basically throws it away and settles for a FG.  Kelce up the seam has been killing our cover 2, that would’ve been a good time to use it.
FG no good.  Halftime.  Negatives with the inside backers remain the same: Brown struggling in coverage.  Spaight struggling with open field tackles.  Inside the box those 2 are pro bowl caliber, outside the box is a different story.

Kerrigan against split all the way wide.  Smith checks the bootleg and pursues backside.  McGee (-1) gets blown off the line, the cutback is there but Hunt isn’t looking for it.  Foster (+1.5) is the boundary backer, knives through his gap and makes the play.  Hood (-1) gets blown off the line.  McClain (+0.5) holds his gap and Brown fills in behind him vs the FB.  Kerrigan (0.5) gets a little upfield.

Spaight (+0.5) closes in (coverage +1)  Also brown bumped over his coverage on the flat/slant combo this time, proving it was probably his duty on the last play.

McGee (-1.5) gets pancacked.  He might be playing hurt.  Hood (+1.5) 2 gaps the center, McClain plays force.  Smith is jamming the WR? Perhaps to help out Dunbar.  Foster is getting read by the back who takes the hole he doesn’t.  Hood comes off his block and makes the play.

Breeland (-1) horse collar.  McGee (+1) beats his block and makes the initial stop, misses the tackle but Kerrigan (-1) is there to help, he misses the tackle.  Breeland has to chase it down.  Hood (+0.5) and Foster play the same A gap McClain has B, knives in to clog it out of desperation and Smith (+1) has contain which closes down any outside run and forces a cut back along with McGee’s penetration.

Galette (-1) RTPasser.  Spaight (-1) holding.  Spaight (-1) gets beat inside badly by Kelce (coverage -2) and the deep safety doesn’t close in on it.  Kinda hard to neg Nicholson as he has to worry about outside go routes as well.  Nicholson (-1) but he should’ve seen the immediate threat in front of him.

Hood slants and Foster fires his gap.  McGee (-1) gets pancacked.  Smith (+1) holds up the outside double and Everett (-1) is free to make a play but takes a shit angle and whiffs.  Fuller (-0.5) whiffs but funnels back to help.  I’m not understanding KC’s blocking on this play.  Why did the FB not work up to Everett?  I guess Smith has his respek.
R5 2 5 1 3 2×2(tight) 3-4 under Run Pitch 4
Dunbar (-1) seals himself out the play.  McGee (-0.5) sealed on the backside and clogs pursuit.  Shovel is there but Kerrigan forces pitch.  Maybe Hood and Ioannidis had the shovel covered.  Anyway, Brown (+1) covers for Dunbar and makes a TD saving tackle.

Slant/Flat to the boundary, this is their bread and butter.  Dunbar (+2) (coverage +1) jams the slant, falls off and plays the flat.  OLBs in coverage saw Smith playing slant and to the field Kerrigan had #2 with safety help directly over top.  Foster walls off #3.  Brown with Hook.  (Pressure -1)

Fuller has bubble, Spaight takes Kelce who spots up.  DJ and Breeland take deep drops and cover nobody.  DJ yells at Spaight but I’m not sure what for (coverage -2).  To the boundary the flat was open as Brown had to fight through traffic.  DJ (-1) usually has some type of robber there.  CB was playing thirds, no way we had 2 deep guys supposed to be covering dirt.
