I think it is more a matter of not trusting the OL to pass block...
Let us not forget that Harbaugh and Co. have had all of 6 weeks to install and implement a pretty complex offensive system. My feeling is that the players simply haven't grasped it yet and that is why the coaches have kept it so simple the past two weeks. There simply hasn't been enough time to get these guys on the same page.
I'm guessing that as the season progresses, we will see the Niners gradually improve on offense.
