Lawrence Guy vs. Portland State
Note: Broadcast cut off first 7 minutes of 1st QTR
1st - 1:12 - Shows good strength and strong hands at POA ... gets a nice initial push
1st - 0:27 - Nice motor and strength on double team
2nd - 14:21 - Quick off the ball ... Gets good penetration in crashing "A" gap
2nd - 13:49 - Shows very good strength and heavy hands ...
2nd - 13:08 - Nice strength in getting LT off balance on X-stung ... solid fluid athleticism in slight movement to arm tackle QB ... LT comes back to finish block and prevent sack ... good job by Guy forcing QB out of pocket - did what he could
2nd - 10:40 - Good instincts and recognizes QB keeper ... disengages, shows nice athleticism and a little explosion in making tackle on QB
2nd - 6:49 - If Guy had elite athleticism then this might have been sack on 3rd and long ... couldn't change directions quickly enough to catch up to QB
3rd - 14:54 - Guy got chop blocked by 2 Portland State OL and they injured his ankle. He didn't return for rest of game.
Honestly 49ers need so much work, might as well turn the 2 pck into multiple. If they don't I would love to see allen from bama because the 49ers are invested in two young ends. I think switching to a 4-3 will help armstead and buckner since they are so lengthy. Pair those two up with a nose tackle who will attract attention from a guard and make armstead and buckner face one on once matchups will be helpful for them. If not allen I would love to see a trade back get jabrill peppers and have him as a tampa 2 linebacker/safety (Urlacher anyone?). have a new kind of version of the 4-4 defense where it would have 3 linebackers and 3 safeties. one for pass one to help the rush, and the other as a multi function player.
