For the "vanilla" excuses:
"The Niners coach allowed as much during his day-after-game conference call with the local media in which he reiterated what he said after Saturday's game: The Texans' defense bullied the offensive line while using largely vanilla schemes."
So, their vanilla + our vanilla = us getting our butts kicked.
Any other excuses? I know we all love the team and want to believe the best, but believe your eyes. It will take Harbs a while to make this team into winners. We don't have the talent in the trenches and he needs to learn to be a NFL head coach. None of it is going to miraculously happen overnight.
According to whom? From what Harbs told the media, he thought they used "vanilla" schemes. Perhaps they "game planned" a bit more than us, but they sure didn't show us their full arsenal. And we couldn't handle their basic D or O. At all. By our own coach's determination (according to the beat writers who cover his press conferences), he thought they used "vanilla" schemes.
