I might check back in later, but for now I’ll let NoFear carry the ball today. I’m headed off to the emergency ward in a few minutes for some chin music. I’ve been doing battle with a bad tooth since last Friday, and it’s whipping my ass pretty awful. Yesterday a big pus wad developed under my chin, making me look like an old pelican. This morning I’m noticing that my throat is closing up on me, too. I told my wife to just get a kitchen knife and slice it open, but she preferred to leave the liability to the emergency guys. A little chicken shit, if you ask me. But, I’m in no shape to argue. If you don’t hear from me again, it means the docs made too big of a slit.

Vernon Davis’ 42 yard TD play on the sixth play of the game.
Despite Billick’s commentary about mixing personnel packages all six plays used “2 tights”.
One, a 1st and 10, had 2TE, 1FB and 1RB in a power I run over left guard. Not exactly a new look for us although Westbrook gained eight yards with it. The next play had Walker split wide but he motioned into the FB’s position in an offset I and we ran Westbrook for the first down.
The remaining plays in the series had Alex passing from under center except for the 3rd and 10 which had Alex in the shotgun. All pretty familiar sets.
My point being Billick can be just as FOS as any of the exuberant cheerleaders doing color and trying to rev up the base.
