I understand the constructive criticism with Roman. However I think people often overlook the bigger picture. What we're seeing at this point is the most balanced attack in years. He's making defensive coordinators defend everything, the complex runs, the options, misdirections, the TE's, and WR's. And at the same time, he's constantly finding ways to get our weapons open. Can he do a better job of getting the 2nd and 3rd options fed? Sure. But when your primary weapons can't be stopped, you don't stray from it.
Call it whatever offense you want, Roman is clearly playing chess, and you're missing out if you're not appreciating it!
you're just calling it chess. he screwed up 2 game plans in a row on purpose for a bigger goal? no.
we have more weapons than boldin and davis which is the point. use all of our legit weapons. macdonald is a legit weapon.
hunter is a legit weapon. there's no reason they shouldn't be integral too. it's not genius to just finding ways to get the same people open when you have other capable people sitting around as decoys..
our 2 tight ends should be tops in the nfl period. there isn't a better combo by anyone and i feel is better than even the one the patriots had last season.
hunter barely gets the ball but has 3 rushing td's this year.
use them without ceasing make the defensive coordinators go into the meeting saying ok we have no shot because if we key in on gore boldin and davis they still have macondald hunter and baldwin, let's just have a silent prayer before the game and hope for the best.
if we use these other guys it makes it impossible to key in on our primary weapons and they get even more impact on the game. more is more not less is more.
also he continues to start kyle williams he doesn't get a pass on that.
like i said he's getting there. it's not some grand chess game, he just simply stopped being cute and he needs to continue to not be cute and we need to continue to engineer 12 play 8 minute back breaking drives.
which we are more than capable of doing. we shredded a good titans defense, the one that barely lost in seattle and forced 5 fumbles.
so i don't hate roman and im not hard on him without reason at this point he's getting there, and hopefully its arrow up every single game from here on out even in the super bowl.
