Craig Dahl, new safety for the San Francisco 49ers safety and former St Louis Rams safety, claimed that the Rams had insight on if it was a run play or a pass play. The 49ers were tipping their plays and the Rams benefited from it.
“We had a few tips off film we were able to differentiate between run and pass early,” Dahl said Wednesday, per Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group. “So that kind of gave us an added benefit on defense.”
Said Dahl: “Different personnel and different alignment stuff really were the big keys as far as giveaways. It’s been addressed and corrected. They knew most of it before I even got here. We just reconfirmed it. It’s ongoing self-study and self-scouting that got it cleared up, too.”
Shortly after this story was released, former teammate of Dahl tweeted out this message of joy:
Craig Dahl we know how you play thanks for the tips we know who to attack early and often
Let’s paraphrase: Craig Dahl, you SUCK at football! Everyone knows it. We are just going to go after you all dang day long and make big plays.
BOOM. Shots fired.
