Geep Chryst on Chris Ault: “You know, I’ve never met him. I know that he had some comments during the week.”

SANTA CLARA — Here’s the transcript of Geep Chryst’s Thursday press conference, courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department.

Opening comments:

“We played with a little bit better spirit, better chemistry. Things we worked on during the course of the week in practice, we carried over to the game. Sometimes, it’s as simple as that. So, we’re looking forward to putting another good game together, maybe picking up where we left in the second half of the Giants game.”


You said a week ago that you would share with us some of the changes you made?

“You have a good memory.”


So, what were the changes?

“There were some tactical things, you some in the first half. And then there were some technical things. And then there’s things you can do in the meeting rooms. So, take the meeting rooms, for example, you devote a little extra time, carve out some extra time during the course of a day and you get together on the same page and I thought that helped our chemistry. And really, I think the intent on something like that is everyone’s got a hard job on Sunday. Whether you’re the right guard or whether you’re the tight end and the more that you can appreciate what your teammate is going through, I think the harder it is and the better it is when you do have success, how you can celebrate with that. So, those would be examples of things. And again, you don’t want to come in like last week and flip all the cards over because you have an opponent that you’re playing the following week. So, coaches will sometimes be guarded with what they, you know, line and chapter and verse are. A little more meeting time, a little more concentration on the technical aspect, getting to the team plays and then the plays we ran were the plays we ran because we thought they were going to work.”


Do you play to continue rotating the right guard or is that a position you would like–?

“You know, what a great compliment to [G] Andrew Tiller. He comes in as a practice squad, he’s from New York and he came in and played really well. I think the advantage is, what do defensive lines love to do? They love to rotate to stay fresh. And so, maybe there’s an advantage to us in that they can spell each other. But, there’s also chemistry within an offensive line. So, we’ve rotated them throughout the week. We’ve rotated them as with the other young players too. Sometimes, when you give an [G/T] Alex Boone a day off from practice or a [T] Joe Staley, you want to make sure that you’re ramping up those young guys and that’s an important thing to do. Again, another example of why practice is important to us.”


But, is that a position though that you would like to just have one starter eventually?

“Eventually you’d like to have stability. And right now, they’re both providing, or we’re providing for them an opportunity and I thought Andrew took advantage of it. And they all have their own attributes, their strengths and weaknesses. So, moving forward, I think it’s something that you want to watch and monitor like [offensive line coach] Chris [Foerster] does not only in games but during practice too.”


How serious do you think RB Carlos Hyde’s foot injury is?

“You know, I was with [Carolina Panthers RB] Jonathan Stewart from Oregon at Carolina and I think that’s probably the closest similarity that I have in the sense that Carlos runs hard as a back, you know. That first collision he had with [New York Giants LB] Jon Beason on the first drive, you can see how physical he is. So, as the course of the season goes on, you want to make sure that they’re as fresh as possible on game day.”


Do you think he’s at risk of not playing Sunday?

“I can’t say that one way or the other. Like I said, I can only go back to a point of reference that I had and Jonathan Stewart did a great job the years that I was with him with the Carolina Panthers where he didn’t do a whole lot during the week and then played great on Sunday’s. So, I would expect the same out of Carlos. That’s what Carlos wants to do.”


What was the thinking, the first two plays of the game you had success with WR Bruce Ellington. I’m assuming the same exact play, one side then the other side.

“Very good, yeah.”


Those are the only two snaps he played the entire game.



What was the thinking? What was the mindset?

“We actually talked about putting him in for a couple of other plays in the second half. There was actually the series that we went three-and-out, we actually took some shots down the field and, you know, part of anything else in terms of a rotation or really plays. So, we were talking about the nature of the game, being a limited possession game. We had four meaningful possessions in the first half and four meaningful possessions in the second half. So, you’d like for him to get a series. That’s always a little easier, that you’re not tipping your hands for a particular play. But, just the nature of the game and really in the second half where things are going smoothly you’re not looking to tweak, adjust or move forward. But, Bruce is coming back off of a little bit of a minor injury and I think that he’s done a great job. And you try to get a guy who is coming back off of an injury a toehold on the game plan, some things that he can execute and he did a great job with that. And really, we went back to that play at a critical time in the fourth quarter drive. It happened to be [WR] Torrey [Smith] that caught it and Torrey did a nice job with it too. So, we’ve got confidence in the people that are out there. And, with both [WR] Quinton [Patton] and Bruce out there, I think they do a nice job of complimenting and adding depth to the receiver position.”


When you say more meeting time, more communication between quarterback and receiver, that to me seems like something that they should have been doing all the time. Is it discussing scenarios? If in this scenario, I’m going to do this, that sort of thing so that there’s more–?

“Yeah. So, if Sunday’s the test, how much homework could you put in? And at some point in time, you don’t want to squeeze it too tight or overcook the eggs. But, we had a structure and a routine, but we felt like we needed to add one more meeting, one more layer of meetings that we felt would be beneficial. Why? Because if you’re not scoring so well on the test, you need to get a little more homework done. And again, if each game is a chapter in a book, you know, certain problems reveal themselves in the course of the book. Chapter three or chapter four revealed things that maybe chapter one or chapter two didn’t have. But, you try to do anything to try to improve and that would be an effort to put in extra time, extra credit, again, getting ready to try to do better on the exam and every Sunday’s another exam. So, can you study infinitely? Can you condition infinitely? It’s all in balance.”


On the field, what did you see the biggest improvement that QB Colin Kaepernick made Sunday night?

“We’ve talked about him being a great rhythm athlete. I thought he found a way to get into rhythm. And again, it takes 11 to pass the ball. I thought the line did a great job of protecting, receivers made plays when the ball was in the air and we strung together some first downs. I thought we were good on third down. That helps not just a first down and a second down play, but you get eight, ten-play drives if you’re converting on third downs. So, all those things came together. We had built, I think, some good rapport during the week. So, when I came here last week I knew that the rapport was already established and we had made strides. And we felt all along that this is a team that has to improve from September to October, improve from October to November, and that’s the challenge for this week playing the Ravens. Can we continue to improve?”


Speaking of the Ravens, is there any similarities from all the tape you studied for the Super Bowl on these guys? The personnel is so different.

“You know, the personnel’s different. It seems like a long time ago. You know, [New York Giants defensive coordinator] Steve Spagnuolo was there for two years and probably more similarity to the fact that we went after the first preseason game and stayed there for a couple of days and went against them. So, you have a point of reference, but the most recent point of reference is probably the preseason game followed by spending time going against them. And [Baltimore Ravens head coach] John’s [Harbaugh] got a great staff. I know a lot of the guys on the staff. [Baltimore Ravens wide receivers coach] Bobby Engram was here. So, they’re a well-coached team and motivated to win. But, in terms of point of reference, you probably go with the most recent point of reference and that was the solid work we did in the preseason last year against them.”


Has TE Garrett Celek turned into your best all-around tight end?

“I’ll tell you what, Garrett’s done a great job. At this time last year, he was fighting through a back injury. Those are really hard because there’s no X-ray, there’s no scar from that. It’s just, my back’s not feeling good. And, I think he’s really broken through. He did a great job, again, the touchdown pass to him, he did a great job in the week. On Thursday, he ran the very same route and kind of opened everyone’s eyes up. So, that was an easy call to make down in the red zone not just because of what the Giants were playing, but we had great confidence. I think everyone in the huddle, everyone on offense, had confidence because of what Garrett did on the practice field. And that’s what coaches love to see. You do something on the practice field, you replicate it on a game field and the little things like he’s blocking extremely well at the point of attack. On third-and-one that [RB] Jarryd [Hayne] got a first down, almost scored, that was a great block by Garrett Celek. The touchdown run on the goal line, [TE] Blake Bell had a great block. And sometimes that’s the grunt work that they do, but what a great job Garrett’s doing and deservedly so. To be a starting tight end in the NFL, he’s earned that right.”


Are you going to get to Stanford tonight?

“Of course. Got to get my homework done early if we’re doing the test. But, yeah, it’s a lot of fun. It’s a fun football season. There’s a lot going on. It’s a good way to take your mind off of the task at hand by going to watch other football teams.”


ME: How well do you know former Nevada head coach Chris Ault?

“You know, I’ve never met him. I know that he had some comments during the week. He obviously knows Kap. I feel like after having been around Kap, you kind of know him as well. So, what he observes is what he obverses and what I observe is what I observe.”


ME: Is there anything to the critique that Kaepernick is dropping his elbow? Is that something you watch at all?

“I was joking with Kap that we put a towel right under his right arm and then we threw it because we wanted to throw like [San Diego Chargers QB] Philip Rivers. But, really, biomechanics or techniques or technical, we’re at the point in the season where you kind of have to execute and hit the open jumper. And I think, like Colin did in the offseason, that’s a great thing to work on in February, March and April. Another thing is, you know, we’re only made a certain amount of way. We walk a certain way. We talk a certain way. And so, to have a cookie-cutter technical approach to things, sometimes is probably not realistic. So, Kap is who Kap is. At this point in time, he’s old enough and further enough into his career that you try to take advantage of sound fundamentals and clean mechanics. But, like I said, Chris knows him well and I feel like I know him well and you try to figure out a way to win, for us, win on Sunday.”

  1. I would have liked you to go back to the “major changes” that were supposed to be made and ask him if not asking Kaepernick to make any coverage reads was one of those changes?

  2. Because I suggested trading out of the top 5 draft spot for 2016, I thought I would follow that up with what that could translate to.
    Here is an example. In 2015 SF traded their Number 15 to SD to move 2 spots back. In return they received 3 picks. The 2015 1st round number 17 pick, the 2015 fourth round 117th pick, and a 201 fifth round pick.
    The rams then dealt their 2015 2nd round pick (41st) to Carolina and got the 2015 2nd round pick (54th) a 2015 third round pick of 83rd and a 2015 6th round pick of 201.
    Now there was concern that the team needed OT, ILB, OL, and WR. You net 3 picks from moving out of the top 5. The team is not going to draft a QB top 5. Jared Goff is a junior who we don’t even know is declaring. He isn’t some cash strapped college kid. His dad was an MLB catcher who understood hard work. I do not think Goff will forgo his degree for the NFL.
    SF has 12 picks slated for 2016 as it stands. (2) fourths, (3) fifths, and (3) sixths. They can bundle those to convert them to (2) 1st , (2) seconds, (1) fourth. (3) fifths. I see them picking up a 5th , a 3rd , and a 1st for trading out of the top 5. Then, I see them grouping their (1) fifths and 3rd to move back into the second.
    Now discuss trading Kaepernick, you pick up a 3rd rounder from Cleveland. With 5 picks in the first 3 rounds, I can see the team filling their QB need and finding an ILB, WR and perhaps a tackle. Take into account they already have 9 picks for 2017 and I think you see the team restock this year. They should restock with starters nabbed in the first 3 rounds.
    I do not think Gabbert is anything more than a higher paid Alex Smith. I believe the team will use him to train the QB they draft. At the expiration of his contract, expect the rookie to start year 2.
    This is all hypothetical, but it is how I would rebuild SF.

    1. I should have added even if the team does not trade Kaepernick, they could potentially have 14 picks in 2016 still with 5 in the top 3 rounds. That is cautiously exciting taking into account who the GM is.

      1. Have you counted the solid starters the 49ers have drafted in the first three rounds over the past five drafts?

    2. Yesterday you were trading Kaep for a 2nd rounder. Now it’s a third. Does your rebuilding plan take into account Baalke’s ability to identify talent? Does it take into account that the owner was proclaiming last season that Tomsula could win more games than Harbaugh to people inside team HQ’s? If Harbaugh got away from the teams “core strengths”, as Jed put it, what has Tomsula done? Harbaugh’s strength was winning. The Yorks have dismantled two successful eras of 49er football. Baalke parlayed McCloughan’s draft picks and scouting into a position of power with the team. He has been struggling ever since and the team has gradually faded in direct correlation to his and Jed’s failures. There is no evidence to suggest that Baalke can restock this roster. There is substantial evidence that he has significant blind spots with regards to identifying and acquiring talent. There is also substantial evidence that the coaching staff cant maximize the talent they do have, unlike Harbaugh’s staff. Your plan completely ignores the realities of talent evaluation, player availability, coaching ability, organizational stability and leadership at the top. It sounds like a game of Madden on a PlayStation, or something.

        1. Prime,
          We have had some disagreements but we also endured through the previous cycle of York-induced dysfunction. We’ve seen this show before. Regardless of how you feel about the QB position, the problems with this franchise start with Jed York. He’s backed himself into a corner. Instead of fighting his way out of it, he seems content to hide there. York is a coward. I’m starting to think that the ONLY reason the team lucked into Harbaugh was because his wife didn’t want to move at the time due to being pregnant. That is as pathetic as it is likely after seeing Jed’s true colors.

      1. Well written BigP…Have you considered applying to the Niner’s…We need help simply retaining our coaching staffs.

        1. BigP,

          Even if one considers we luck into Goff, with Baalke on staff drafting WR’s and the OL, basically ordering the next offensive coordinator to run the ball, no development or imaginative football mind would ever consider the 49ers as a place to call home.

          1. TomD,
            You aren’t lying. That’s Jed’s boy. We have an owner who wouldn’t give a highly successful HC a raise, but he will pay Shareece Wright $1.5 million to not play a snap for the team…..and then the team releases Wright to sign with their next opponent a week before they play them. *Clap. Clap. Clap.

          2. Tom not sure on one thing. You trash the 49ers then refer to them as we. As in “we luck into Goff”. So what does this mean? You are a fan or just a clown trying to be funny?

      2. Apparently your three followers have crowned you king of the trolls. I sure hope that doesn’t take away from coaching those Petaluma kids. They need your constant negativity.
        Yesterday I said a second round pick for Kaepernick. That high pick is contingent on him continuing to be effective but not winning liKE he did in NY.
        If he faulters and plays a combination of how he played against AZ, Pitts, and NY then I see his value dropping to a third round pick.
        I am sorry I didn’t spell out every possibility for you. I assumed by starting the conversation down a path that lead away from the same negativity you could carry it to a productive end. The Pygmalion effect. I still hold out hope.

    3. Who is trading up to the 49ers hypothetical top 5 pick and why?

      The first draft day trade last draft was to move up from pick 17 to pick 15… which player is getting teams so excited the 49ers will make out like bandits by trading down?

      1. Here are a few teams I see moving up because they will finish with records that put them in the mid first round where picks are stagnant. Dallas will need to move up. Washington could make a move. AZ needs to find a backup QB and a WR to replace Fitzgerald. All three of those teams have glaring needs. There is no replacement for Romo so if a top name other than Goff is there, I see Dallas moving. Consider Philly and their desire to get Mariotta last season. Chip Kelly could make a move.
        As for Baalke, he certainly misses talent which is the appeal for more picks. It fits his MO. Fire at everything and you are bound to hit something. That is why I said cautious excitement depending on who the GM is.
        I merely backed my idea up with plausible solutions. I prefer that approach than finding new ways to voice the same sentiment the ownership is terrible and the GM lacks talent assessment. It moves the conversation beyond the normal dribble of bemoaning the season 5 weeks in.

        1. It was the same situation this past draft, in fact you could argue it was more important to move up this year due to the dearth in talent, yet the first trade involved pick #15.

          The idea of trading down from a top 5 pick is a fine one. But there is simply no guarantee you will find a willing partner, or at least a willing partner that will give up the bounty you would like.

          I also find it interesting that you think the 49ers should move down because the talent isn’t there at QB to be worth staying put and taking one, yet you think another team should and would trade up for one.

    4. Matt may I introduce you to Seb? Seb here’s somebody to talk about ridiculous trade ideas with. Have fun.

      1. Thank you. I respect Seb. I value his opinion. Were you going to contribute anything positive to the conversation?

        1. Matt,

          We see a lot of pie in the sky ideas around here and I think we have just become tired of reading them. The things you are proposing won’t happen, and the reason is the league isn’t full of morons who have done no research on other teams players.

          Nobody is trading anything meaningful for Kap at this point. He’s struggling and every team that may have interest knows they may have a shot at him as a FA if the team goes a different direction after the season. Some team may part with a late round pick if they truly feel he could help them, but that is about it.

          Can the Niners trade down and garner more picks? Absolutely. Will they fill all their holes with those picks? No. How do we know this? We know this because Baalkes history gives us no reason to believe he’s going to draft 4 starters in the first couple of rounds.

          The reason I made the crack about Seb is because he was pontificating about multiplayer deals for high draft picks in the offseason which had about as much chance of happening as your ideas here.

          I honestly don’t mean to be an ahole, but this kind of stuff is a waste of time.

          1. Oh big waste of time. Idle conjecture during the off season, and they take umbrage to it? I was not impressed with the insights of many posters who did not advocate trades to help the Niners get better. At least I was trying to improve the team, instead of predicting doom and gloom.

            1. Coming up with unrealistic trade propositions that have no chance of happening is a waste of time. Try coming up with something that doesn’t involve another team being totally inept and maybe your ideas will be taken a little more seriously.

              1. In the history of the game, there have been no multiple trades? There is a chance, especially if both teams think they can benefit and both teams want to win.

              2. No team trades high picks for end of roster players Seb. It doesn’t happen, no matter how many you want to include. Every team has castoffs or players they have no room for. Everybody would like to make trades like you proposed which is why they don’t happen.

              3. I bet Jax, with all their troubles would have jumped now at the chance to get Celek, Miller Wright and TJ Eddie for only a conditional second. It would have filled multiple holes for one future draft pick.

      2. In hindsight, my idea to bundle picks to obtain a high draft pick would have helped the Niners, and the team they would have traded to. The Niners did end up trading away players, just not bundled. I had Wright as trade bait, so it would have been a lot better to trade him away instead of cutting him to go play for their next opponent.
        I stand by my conjecture. If that scenario is deemed ridiculous, the idea that trading Kaep for a third rounder is ludicrous.

        1. The problem I see here is there are a handful of individuals who enjoy patting each other on the back. They cause stagnant conversation that is simply a regurgitation of the comment the week before. They are the people in this world who enjoy complaining about a problem. Business and the world have adapted to a style that promotes conversation, brain storming, and team building. It isn’t their fault. They were raised not to question anything.
          The conversations and conflicts are generational gaps.
          I do not pretend to know how to run an NFL Team. I throw the conversation out in an effort to educate myself because I see the merit in the vast knowledge of the individuals on this blog. In the 7 years I have been reading here, I have learned an unfathomable amount. So if my post annoys you I apologise. If you could simply do a knowledge dump I wouldn’t have to try to initiate conversation in an effort to learn from the brilliant individuals this blog entertains. I am learning regardless of the insults. I leave with a more profound understanding of how businesses operate from individuals who have a vast amount of experience. So, if I ask a question you feel is senseless or propose an idea that has little chance of developing, I hope you’ll see it as a request for you to share some of your expertise to the blog for all of our edification. Thank you

          1. Matt,

            You have to have thick skin when posting things on here. Don’t take it as a personal insult because it’s not. Nobody knows you and they aren’t questioning your intelligence as a person. This is about football and you get push back when you propose things that really don’t have much chance of happening.

            As I mentioned above, I’m not trying to be an ahole, and I don’t want you to think I’m insulting you personally. What I and others are doing, is commenting on your football ideas and we don’t agree. I would simply ask you to think about something before posting the ideas you have: Does the trade I’m proposing benefit both teams equally, or am I thinking of this as purely a gain for the 49ers? Trades can only be consummated if both sides feel it is a true benefit for them. That is why teams don’t trade high picks for struggling players or trade up unless there is a very good player worth trading up for. In the case of Baalke, just look at what he’s done in the first couple of rounds in his history here and ask yourself if you truly believe he’s going to draft 4 starters. That’s all I’m trying to tell you. Think it through from every side and not just in how it benefits the 49ers.

        2. Everything looks rosy using 20-20 hindsight, Seb.

          Trading away Wright was never going to happen until they’d had a chance to see all the DBs through TC, to see who won the job. Same goes with a bunch of the bottom of the roster players. And come the end of TC teams just aren’t willing to give up the really high picks for players that are about to be cut anyway.

          Saying in hindsight that trading X, Y, Z player would have made sense because they didn’t make the roster doesn’t take into consideration the unknowns at the time. End of the day the 49ers simply shouldn’t have signed Dockett or Wright, but its easy to say that now. There was a time after they were signed that both guys were expected to be starters or solid contributors. That’s why you sign 90 players heading in TC and let guys compete for spots.

          1. I knew Wright was an expensive gamble, that is why I wanted to trade him.
            So instead of trading away Wright for something, the Niners end up with nothing with a cap hit and a pissed off player who just spilled his guts on ALL of the locker room intel.
            Maybe the multiple player trade was iffy, but in hindsight you may not want to give me credit for it, but my plan would definitely would have helped the Niners. And with the Jax struggles, those players would have been a huge help to them.

            1. You may well have though it a gamble, as did many, but they were never going to trade him just after signing him without giving him a chance during training camp. Simple fact. If they didn’t like his chances of winning a starting job they wouldn’t have signed him.

              1. Ah, now I see their strategy. The Niners planted him as a mole on the other team, and torched him like a roman candle.

  3. What was the thinking? What was the mindset?
    Guh, missed opportunity to ask a far more poignant question. “Why is Bruce’s role in the offense so limited?” I read the explanation about coming back from an injury but that doesn’t really explain his near total lack of inclusion in the offense to this point.

  4. Has TE Garrett Celek turned into your best all-around tight end?
    Hate when someone asks a question that the coach is so obviously not going to answer.

  5. Sorry, but Geep just gave a bunch of BS answers with no content or substance. As far as his comments about not playing Bruce E. more, what a load of crap. He is going to stand there with a straight face in from of the press and state that he could get Bruce only 2 plays out of 67 (?) because of the flow of the game and the sequence in series. Another load of malarky! He has no credentials to ridicule Phillip Rivers’ throwing motion. Phillip’s dad was a high school coach and Phillip spent many hours and days as a youngster at his father’s practices. Obviously, as a youth, the size of the ball was too big for his hand, so Phillip had to hold the ball in a lower position and throw it from a lower arm angle to get it out of his hand. With all of that muscle memory developed at such a young age from the hundreds of throws, Phillip carried that throwing motion with him through HS and at NC State where he was tutored and coached by Norm Chow. His throwing style definitely has not done him a disservice in the NFL. Privately, Geep probably wishes that Kap had only half of the acumen that Rivers has. For him to selectively criticize Rivers is unprofessional.

    1. I interpreted his comment as using Rivers as an example that not everyone is cookie-cutter in their technique. They have junior size footballs for kids and regulation size footballs for big kids and adults. I never threw a ball side armed unless I was trying to. Rivers is a big dude, he just developed a habit that never really impacted his game. Manziel has a similar motion. He occasionally gets balls batted down and already has elbow tendinitis. People are different.

      1. Geep was humiliating Rivers by inferring that if he had a white towel over his arm, he would be a waiter carrying a tray at a restaurant. As a 6 and 7 year old kid, attempting to throw a ball used by his father’s high school team’s practices in Athens, Alabama, Rivers developed that throwing style because the size of the ball was far too big for his little hands. Geep would be so lucky to have a QB of Rivers’ quality playing for him. Instead, the Geep has Kap running his EDSEL pass offense.

        1. Okay. He specifically said UNDER his arm with regards to the towel, so my interpretation was different. I like Rivers, but he was the leader of the NFL’s most talented roster for several years and didn’t get anything done. If his father was such a good coach, he would have developed the proper technique with a proper sized football, relative to Phillip’s size and age. I’m not trying to be a smart ass, that’s just common sense. If my son started throwing side armed, I’d correct him.

        2. “Humiliating” Rivers? I doubt Rivers would be offended by what Geep said.

          Also, for clarification, Geep said he joked about putting a towel “under” Kaep’s arm, not over it. I have no idea what he meant by that, but I’m not getting the waiter reference by having a towel under your arm.

          It seems pretty obvious that all Geep was saying is that different QBs have different throwing motions, and you can be a successful QB (like Rivers) without having a perfect throwing motion.

          1. Geep could have used Bernie Kosar as a reference to a different throwing style, but then again, he may not be old enough to remember Bernie’s exploits on the gridiron!

          2. My interpretation is that with a towel under his arm, he would keep his elbow close to his body, and put more emphasis on the fore arm with the throw.

  6. Jed… It goes above Jed to his Dad, John York. For as long as the 9ers remain with the Yorks, we’re facing a bleak future–some upticks, many stumbles. Unless… Unless one day they learn to live with a GM and coach with true NFL moxie, and the egos that are likely to come with them.

  7. I am happy that my conjecture about Wright giving intel to the Ravens was posed to the Niners. I am glad that the Niners are not ignoring that fact and might take his intel seriously enough to change up their game plan.
    Since the press is not coming up with enough poignant and insightful questions, here are a few more I would like them to ask.
    Do you realize that by getting the play off before 1 second on the play clock will save time, why not save those seconds by running the no huddle with quick snaps?
    Do you realize that by saving at least 10 seconds every play, with 40 snaps, that adds up to 400 seconds, or 6 and two thirds minutes?
    With those added minutes, do you realize that Kaep could get one or 2 more opportunities to score?
    Do you think that more opportunities to score is important?

  8. What I got out of this is what I have believed to be the case all along, and that is they just let Kap be Kap and don’t work on the fundamentals or mechanics much if at all. Chryst was the QB Coach which would explain why there has been little improvement in this area for Kap.

    The difference between Kap and Rivers is simple: accuracy. Rivers delivers an accurate pass even with his strange throwing motion. Kap does not which is why he needs to be focused on his fundamentals when throwing the football.
