1-10-WAS 36 (14:20) R.Helu left tackle to WAS 38 for 2 yards (I.Sopoaga, P.Haralson).
The DT keeps Montgomery from making solid contact and easily sheds him to fill the hole.
2-8-WAS 38 (13:43) R.Helu right guard to WAS 40 for 2 yards (D.Whitner; J.Smith).
Maurice Hurt at LG pulls and Montgomery does not compensate by picking up the RDT, who penetrates and redirects Helu in the backfield.
1-10-WAS 22 (3:05) R.Helu left tackle to WAS 25 for 3 yards (N.Bowman, P.Haralson).
Montgomery allows the DT to penetrate deep into the backfield; forutnately the guy is overly aggressive and runs himself out of the lane, allowing Helu to make it across the line of scrimmage.
1-10-WAS 47 (10:47) R.Torain right end to WAS 49 for 2 yards (P.Willis).
Montgomery is pushed back while carrying the DT down the line, squeezing Torain's hole as he tries to cut back.
2-13-WAS 17 (10:30) R.Helu left end pushed ob at WAS 18 for 1 yard (P.Haralson).
Trent Williams and Mongomery can't get handles on the DTs and fail to slow them down the line on the stretch; this leaves Torain without inside cutback lanes so he has to try to make it around the edge but fails.
1-10-WAS 19 (4:17) J.Beck scrambles right end pushed ob at WAS 23 for 4 yards (R.Jean Francois).
Helu motions to WR to create an empty backfield, so there is no margin for error. Beck has no chance to even complete his drop before Montgomery is pushed straight back into his face and he is flushed from the pocket.
2-10-WAS 35 (2:55) J.Beck pass short middle to R.Torain to WAS 42 for 7 yards (N.Bowman).
Screen pass. Chester gets a pretty good block to seal out the playside OLB, but Montgomery misses a cut block on the Mike, who ends up making the tackle when there were a lot more yards to be gained.
1-10-SF 41 (1:42) R.Torain right end to SF 45 for -4 yards (N.Bowman).
PENALTY on WAS-T.Austin, Illegal Crackback, 15 yards, enforced at SF 41 - No Play.
This play starts with the standard zone tandem blocking with Williams and Chester on the LDE and Montgomery and Hurt on the LDT. The very aggressive Mike backer shoots the right A gap and neither Chester nor Monty shed their initial block to pick him up.
2-4-SF 37 (5:24) (No Huddle, Shotgun) J.Beck pass incomplete short middle to A.Armstrong.
Again the DT gets under Montgomery's pads and drives him back into Beck's face, so he can't step into his throw. Beck probably should have had the pocket presence to sidestep the pressure, but it did get on him quick.
1-10-SF 34 (3:00) (Shotgun) J.Beck pass short left to R.Helu to SF 31 for 3 yards (D.Goldson).
Williams and Locklear each allow pressure on the edges and Beck can't step up properly because - you guessed it - a DT drives Montgomery into the middle of the pocket again.
3-1-SF 10 (1:34) (No Huddle, Shotgun) J.Beck pass short left to R.Helu to SF 9 for 1 yard (D.Whitner, D.Goldson).
