IMHO, Kap is a 2nd year QB who is being coached a particular way - and it's clear the plays that he has to audible too are already scouted and countered - especially by teams that run zone-read runs. It's as if Roman isn't even watching the game while calling successive plays. Still calling 7-step drops and empty sets against a D that's been beating your tackles all game? The two slants that were called were effective. This is why the receivers have no passes. Someone is coaching Kap to always look downfield for the big play. He's not being coached to move through his reads and throw underneath. Furthermore, the 49ers believe so much in this that they often keep Gore in to block instead of using him as another receiver to attack the D.
So what we have is a passing offense that doesn't routinely have slants, outs and screens. This is an offense that has available to it Gore, Hunter and LMJ and never do we see both on the field routinely using the skills of them all. Are we developing LMJ more into a receiver? Clearly the dude can catch and we know how dangerous he is in space. Use him as more of a receiver. It's as if we are convinced the 6 - 10 plays and their variations will work against any team at any time. It's offensive arrogance. We saw this against the Colts and against the Seahawks - the belief that no other team can counter our plays, despite having success with other formation we continue to run the same ineffective scheme.
