The lack of outside threats isn't an excuse anymore after this game there is no more excuses. The plays in the system is absolutely abysmal, there were so many plays that I saw that had no chance of success or very little chance of success, personnel had nothing to do with it

+1000

More throws to Miller. I could show near endless film on LMJ, one of the faster and most dangerous guys in space that we have and we are throwing the ball to Miller because why? We think play-action will work better with Miller? No matter what they're going to play the run. Who has a better chance of making someone miss - Miller or LMJ?

This guys creating the gameplan - the overall approach to the game - they are the problem.

Note: The two receiving TD that worked came out of a traditional NFL-pro type offense, not the AR-passing b******t. A backsholder throw to Boldin and a half-rollout to Davis. Kap is being coached to drop back ... wait for someone to come open.... wait ... scramble .... wait ..... then run for positive yards giving the D enough time to recognize and counter.


Every team will play the 49ers like this until we make them pay for it.

No opponent on the schedule looks like a sure win anymore.
If it wasn't Sunday and early work Monday I get super drunk.
It's gonna be highly embarrassing when we don't do s**t against the garbage skins defense next week

The offense is so predictable its gone beyond ridiculous, the 49ers have wasted some incredible defensive efforts, BRB, holding the Saints to 23 points in the Superdome and still losing the game, WTF?
Bill Walsh is rolling over in his grave right now.
Word association. Quick: I saw First down...you tell me what we'll run.

He was rolling after that Ed Reed pick and fade route in the super bowl.

Run right off tackle usually behind Boone with Miller as FB.
1st down gadget plays guaranteed to get us behind the chains is always great does it 2 games in a row

Sunday against the Panthers, you had Kaepernick drop straight back on 29 of the 31 pass plays. So, of course Kaepernick got sacked six times. What did you think would happen against that tough defense? Was it Mangini's idea to keep Kaepernick in one spot, a sitting duck? Tell me it was Mangini's idea and not yours.

Why not move Kaepernick – move him more often behind the inside hip of the tackle, or outside the tight end on a sprint or a play-action bootleg or "waggle?" Why not do something, anything?

"That's something in our game plan," Harbaugh said Monday at a press conference, referring to moving the pocket. "You bring up a great point which frustrates everybody involved in the unit, when you're not in the rhythm picking up first downs and being able to get in deeper to your playbook – get into the screen game, get into the movement game, keep things off balance. It's frustrating to us all."

If Harbaugh is telling the truth – he may not be – rollouts and waggles and bootlegs are "deep" in the 49ers playbook. That would not be good.

Rollouts and bootlegs and waggles should not be deep in a play book. They should be featured in any playbook, especially the 49ers' playbook because Kaepernick is their quarterback and he knows how to move.

Most coaches move the pocket, or the "launch point," for the quarterback once every fourth pass. That's Football 101. Keep the pass rush off balance by moving the pocket every few passes.

But this season, the 49ers have moved the pocket by design for Kaepernick on just 28 of his 266 pass plays. That's about once every 10 passes. That makes no sense.

Kaepernick has been extremely accurate throwing on designed roll outs this season – 16 completions on 27 attempts, including 6 drops. That's an 81-percent accuracy rate. He also has passed for 10 first downs and run for one first down on rollouts.

I asked Harbaugh why his offense isn't moving the pocket more often than 10 percent of the time.

He said, "Don't know that 10 percent is not enough."

Well, now you do. It is not nearly enough. You should move the pocket for Kaepernick three times as often as you do – once every three passes. Your offensive line struggles to pass protect, your wide receivers struggle to beat man coverage and Kaepernick struggles to read the whole field from the pocket. Moving the pocket more frequently would help. It would cut the field in half and give Kaepernick two easy reads – one deep receiver, one short receiver – and it would give Kaepernick the option to run. No brainer.

Brett Favre ran these plays all the time when he was Kaepernick's age – 26. And when Favre was 26, he won the MVP throwing to Robert Brooks and Mark Chmura. Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis are better than Brooks and Chmura.

Favre wasn't the only quarterback who made a living on rollouts and bootlegs. Steve Young did, too, and so did John Elway.

1st and 10 with 2:06 left. Everyone in the world knows that you should run it right up the gut and force them to use their final timeout or hold on to it if we were fortunate enough to get a 10 yard gainer and get to the 2 minute warning. Yet Roman calls a 5 step or 7 step drop and we get sacked for 10 yard loss and they use their timeout we then proceed to call a bizarre sequence of plays that results in a punt with basically a full 2 minutes on the clock for Brees....

God Roman is terrible at situational football and after reading that post from last week about our predictable offense and tells I started calling out pass play left/right or run play left/right and I was never wrong once. If a casually fan can do this from his couch just imagine what coordinators and players on the field do with a full week of preparation..........

Teams are cheating by loading up the box and following where Miller is going, there's no real mystery to it, the 49ers have shown that they can't/won't adjust to what a defense is doing, thereby making the defense's jobs far easier than they might be otherwise.
A decent offensive coordinator would have taken this game to overtime. No, take that back, a better o-coordinator would have won this game by putting 7 on the board rather than 3.

You know things are pretty bad when Grant Cohn is calling a better offense than the 49ers coaches. Egads.
