The excuses made to remove the coaches from blame is unbelievable. It is a flat out lie to say Kap can't make multiple reads considering that it has never been a weakness for him at any point in his career. Right now, I think it's more of a trust issue with the rest of the receivers that are not Boldin or VD. He needs to trust his receivers more to make the play. But to say he cannot progress through reads is not true.
Kap has played poorly at times but do not for one second excuse the coaches from blame - they have been just as poor and deserve just as much blame if not more, Roman in particular. Take away his bag of tricks and gimmicks, he is thoroughly mediocre. Challenge him, he'll shrink and wet the bed. Third time this season we've faced a legit play off team and he's unprepared, poor play calling, with a terrible game plan and his inability to adjust is f**king frustrating. I'm not sure who designs the passing plays but whoever is doing it does a piss poor job - I've seen better, more imaginative and creative passing attacking college than this trash passing game we're unfortunately witnessing. f**king pathetic.
I know I've mentioned it a few times tonight but can't remember if I did in this thread.
Harbaugh was asked today why they don't use screens. His response was "that is a great point. Point taken"
He was later asked why they don't run bootlegs or more plays with movement to counter strong pass rushes and he basically said "it's frustrating for everyone involved".
He said a lot more but to me it sounded like a coach accepting blame or at least understanding that it is a problem. Hopefully they do something about it going forward. It is ludicrous to use backs in the passing game once or twice in a game if your receivers are blanketed.
At very minimum the backs running routes will force backers to either cover them or Kap scrambles.
It's just asinine to blame only the QB. Good coaches find ways to get players in the right position to make plays.
