Quote:
Now we know why the 49ers hired defensive guru Eric Mangini to serve as an offensive consultant.

Safety Craig Dahl, who played last year for a Rams team that went 1-0-1 against the eventual NFC champions, said Wednesday that the Niners tipped offensive plays based on personnel and formation, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.

We had a few tips off of film that we were able to differentiate between run and pass early, Dahl said. So that kind of gave us an added benefit on defense.

It was a few different things. Some different personnel and alignment stuff really were the big keys, as far as our giveaways.

Maiocco says Dahl immediately told the 49ers about their tell after signing with the 49ers earlier this year.

Its stuff thats been corrected, Dahl said. Its just them discussing what kind of things we prepared for when I was in St. Louis last year, as far as scouting and different things we saw game-planning against the 49ers offense. Kind of working with the offensive coaches on that aspect, and also kind of giving them tips and tendencies on their offense.

Its been addressed and corrected. They knew most of it before I even got here, and its re-confirming. Its just ongoing, self-studying and self-scouting stuff. Got that cleared up, too.

Helping to ensure it will be cleared up is Mangini, whose job surely will include spotting the kinds of things the Rams spotted last year during film study.

Still, its a disclosure that has to be embarrassing for coach Jim Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Greg Roman. And it has to be vexing for Rams coach Jeff Fisher, who now has to find a different way to slow down the 49ers offense.

And Rams star CB Cortland Finnegan responded:

Craig Dahl is lame and weak for that glad he with another squad we know how he play thanks for the tips we know who 2 go at

Craig Dahl we know how you play thanks for the tips we know who to attack early and often

Now we all know why Dahl got signed, because.... he's awful:

Yes, he actually has his own GIF page on SB Nation for how much he sucks.

No surprise. I thought that was the main reason they signed him anyways. I'm sure the Rams offense will let him know how they feel about this in the season.

Finnegan is over reacting. He couldn't expect Dahl to not say anything.

And here, I had thought all offseason that we had seen the last Craig Dahl thread in the Ram's forum. But, damn. He made his way back.

Best part is even if Dahl knew exactly what was going to happen he still wouldn't have been able to make the play.

First thought after I saw this, gotta credit the coaching staff here. Really makes you realize how blessed we are to have all these veteran coaches. It seems like they were the only staff that knew this "tell." No one else could stop Kaepernick.

I really fail to see how this is a big deal. Its not like he did anything wrong. The nfl is a business, its not like he went benedict Arnold. All players do this.

I just wish i was there to see him leak the information. "And when kaep tilted his head to the right. I immediately knew i had to.wonder around the field and look lost, and go snag coach a brewskie from the concessions guy."

Lmao.

I can't wait to play the Niners this year. Just tell Bradford to scan the field for Dahl, the rest will fall into place.

This happens all the time, especially when it's a division rival...

The part that probably irked Finnegan is that he came out and put it in the media. No need for that...

Do we know if Dahl is even a starter for them? If so, they are hurting a lot more then I expected in the secondary. Can you imagine the downgrade from Goldson to Dahl? lol

Dahl will be like a third stringer for them.

The 49ers coaching staff is to smart to start Dahl against us, the rams WR may take it personal up on them selfs to make Dahl look like a sitting statue, besides that the 49ers coaching staff should be worried about our offensive and defense .

Chris long decided to join in on the twitter war. The rams have become a very chippy team and I love it. I hate the drama but once in a while I guess it can't hurt. Could even bring the D together
