My understanding of our play calling procedure as it sits is this. Roman chooses a run play, Morton chooses a pass play, both are relayed down to Harbaugh who then listens to Romans suggestion for the down and distance, but Harbaugh makes the final decision. This procedure is why we are often sooo damn late getting the play in and to the line of scrimmage.
As I understand it Roman is the genius behind the creative running and the passing game is all on Morton.
How do you know that this is how a play gets relayed in? Honest question. I'm curious how this is public knowledge. In any case, I guess I should have said "can the 49ers continue to be creative?"
If this is the actual chain of events, the 49ers are pretty fast to have all that communication and get to the LOS with time for all this pre-snap motion.
