If I remember correctly Boldin had two drops. Is Roman responsible for every mistake the team makes?

Mistakes, mistakes made on the field by players, killed us this game.


I agree that the team needs to drastically improve its passing game--that there are conceptual flaws in the passing scheme that need to be corrected.

Harbaugh has two years left on his contract--two years to make the corrections that are needed. I would like to see the corrections made.

If Roman is fired or Roman is kept, I do not care. I want to see a better developed passing game.

This is my wish as well, but I wonder if that will happen with Roman at OC. I keep wondering about the story detailing the way plays are called, using three different people...run, pass and Roman relaying the plays. Then Harbaugh can over rule. Seems a weird way to run an offense. And I want the passing game to be in sync...not hodge podge, willynilly, devel may care...whatever the hell it is now.

Harbaugh and company came into the league three years ago. They have done very well, but they clearly need to make adjustments.

In my estimation, it is their responsibility to make those adjustments.

Will they be able to do it? I have no idea. We will see.

Baalke needs to get us more and better depth at wide receiver. Again, we will see.

The players also need to make adjustments. Kaepernick needs to examine his game and focus some energy eliminating the turnovers. Aldon Smith needs to stay on course. In the last two, games there have been problems with hand off between Gore and Kaepernick. That miscommunication needs to be fixed. Again, we will see.

Fangio did make good adjustments in his work--so it can be done.

He's not going anywhere. Its not like you're going to find someone better at this junction and his playcalling is directly derived from Harbaugh's philosophy. This is the type of offense that Harbaugh wants, simple as that.

your right absolutely right
I liked using Kap on designed run plays and giving him the green light in running. I wish they would have worked the middle area of the field more often to pick up better gains on first down. Gore and the Oline did not have it going in the run game. On that last drive they had it going. No need to try for it all there with time and timeouts left. The drive was going so well too.
The first drive of the game after Aldon forced and recovered the fumble I thought it was a mistake to not go play action right away to the end zone on our first offensive play. We went three and out, and didn't even pass to the end zone. I feel this way because we already had the field goal, we already had three points, so why not take a shot for 7? Way too conservative for me.

Wait so Roman was the one who threw the pick in the endzone????
Roman is done.
This scheme has no upside, but then neither does the QB.

What exactly is the point of Harbaugh and Roman, again?

Agree with this! The Seahawks were surprised and that's a good time to pounce! Instead, the call was run Gore into a stacked line. Just dumb.

This is stupid. Do you know for a fact Kap was told to throw that ball?

You may be right.

But, we have to see what develops in the off season.

No,but this 1970's style passing offense needs an upgrade, badly. Quarterback performance and playcalling are all included in that. Kaepernick needs to sit and watch tape of this game over and over until he fully understands why that was a bad pass to throw at that point in the game. The pass itself was on the money and Sherman made a phenomenal play on it, but it wasn't necessary, he had guys open elsewhere, they had time and 2 timeouts, enough to move down the field progressively and even try to run it into the endzone.


The passing offense needs to expand, the constant runs on first down into a loaded box need to stop. More playaction, more bootlegs, slants, screens, get the RB's more involved in the passing offense as well as secondary targets such as Patton and McDonald.

No, that's not what's being said here at all .... it's the play. Why present the option? It was an AR play - fade to the endzone. Called play. Should Kap have thrown it no. Should the play have even been called as an option to the right side of the field? Absolutely not.

Then you'll have the same s**t nest year. As simple as that.
