SMH

This times 1,000,000. I could see the Vikings interview the day after the Packers game, but now another one this week? I know it was off-site but this fat f**k barely gets by without the distractions. This offense better come out firing on all cylinders come Sunday kickoff.

"In 2012 the Penn State job went to then-New England offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien, who was recently named the Texans' head coach. When news that Roman was in the running for the job broke two years ago, the 49ers were preparing to face either the Saints, Falcons or Giants in the divisional round of the playoffs. Roman had interviewed for the position in November of that season.

The 49ers ended up scoring 36 points and gaining 406 yards of offense in a win over the Saints the following week."

I agree. I wrote "more pass happy". I'm just hoping for more balance and points on the board.

I just want to see an offense that involves more players than just Kap, Gore, Davis, Boldin, Crabtree. This offense is so deep with skilled players - and Lattimore hasn't even been on the field yet. You don't know what you have if players never get a chance to develop/play consistently.

So this! Design plays for Patton other than end arounds, give him some quick hitches, slants or wr screens. Design plays for McDonald, give others a chance. This offense has too many weapons that never or rarely get used

Our possibilities are almost endless yet Roman doesn't take full advantage. I still want to see LMJ and Hunter utilized on screen passes but I won't hold my breath. If Roman leaves, the next OC would be licking his chops with all of our weapons.

No thanks, I already have to deal with his frustrating playcalling with the 49ers. Please not PSU

He pisses us off with questionable / lame play-calling at times, but we have been in the playoffs since Harbs and crew got here... he's not as awful as a lot of us think (and I criticize him A LOT). Having said that, I don't mind if he leaves just as long as we have a better replacement when he's gone.

If he leaves, it sure would save the Yorks a lot of money from all the snacks he eats and all...

And that defense is a BIG reason why we're in the playoffs 3 years now. If anything I'm much more impressed with what Fangio and staff has done with the defense. They were ok to good under Nolan and Singletary, but they have been championship/elite caliber over the past two seasons.

I agree (Defense / Fangio), but our offense / Roman really isn't horrible...

lol, you must be joking. A chance to get a promotion, better pay, and freedom to run and offense as he pleases. Why wouldn't he interview?

I wouldn't say horrible .... like doing 60 in Porche when the speed limit is 75.

So you guys want him gone but don't want him to interview? If he waits until the season is over the jobs could be filled.
spizzy---Texas Horns already have Strong from Louisville( I think). I guess Penn St it is, Bud. I still think Chicago or Minn. will get him as he has beaten GB 3x in a row...and they like that.

GM as you well know one of my 3 biggest gripes with HaRo has been non-utilization of players until injury (Tramaine, who should have started long before, and replaced an injured DB). The WR and TE and RB list of receivers is tops of my list. You mentioned most who SHOULD have gotten chances to show if they can catch or not. The really bad thing about this is that when we go to draft and pick up another WR, how do they know the new guy is better than 5 other guys we have sitting on the bench, literally untested. NOW THAT is just plain foolish and not looking ahead. Stupid. STOOPID.

The RZ play calls, nobody here could or would defend going back to SB. And then the AR vs PS vs WCO....what we really need is to tailor our O to our players. Spread /WCO seems like a really good way to go for me. That would suit kap well, I believe, and get the other 20% out of him that poor playcalling has prevented. He could REALLY be good...just not in our current O, whatever the hell it is. But not having multiple targets with this talent....3 all pros to throw to is just plain nutty.

the clock issues still remain, and again, we are winning anyway. Running into a box 8-10 is a proven loser, yet we still do it and still....have won the last 7 games.

I guess my question would be, just exactly how good could this team be with improvement in the above. Right now I would say unimaginable. And yet, we keep on winning. Amazing...except for one thing. Even if we don't win, this is the most talented team overall, of any I have seen of the 49ers and that goes all the way back 37 yrs to 1977. Our talent at virtually all slots save one or two is just awesome. Be nice if the coaching caught up. Imagine that...

if he leads a super bowl champion offense they will wait.
