^^ Or Greg Roman, should he be coaching in the NFL?
I agree Roman struggles with play calling and has no scheme to his offense. Roman's idea of creating is based at the line of scrimmage by putting men in motion. That doesn't work it puts our offense behind in the play clock. We need route combinations and less with the men in motion. I hope we don't put to much pressure on Crab and Kaep to produce for the lack of ingenuity on offense from Roman.

do they get tired of losing the same exact way over and over? that's the more pressing issue.

im not trying to convince anyone im just voicing my opinion that's all i adapt as things change. they haven't so there's nothing else to really say in a thread asking if greg roman is good lol

You didn't know that Jed York reads posts in NT to help gauge the fan base?

Can someone who has watched colleged football objectively tell me if this looks like the Stanford offense? Is their passing game predicated on a single AR as well? More diverse? Game plan to attack defensive weaknesses? Do they take the play down to 1 second before snaping it? Basically, are both offenses the same? Please give me some counter-differences IF different. I'm trying to gauge if Harbaugh is in bed with this offense as much as Roman is calling it. If so, there would no be point in letting Harbaugh call the plays...we're just screwed until Harbaugh is willing to completely scrap HIS entire offensive philosophy and bring in a professional.

Once again, we see things on TV that are so glaring, but he does not call them. Against Carolina, they were begging to give up some big plays with a screen play. Now, against the Saints, they were begging to give up the play action pass out of I-form. He just does not recognize these things, and does not capitalize.

I will give credit where it is due. He called a few more plays to get Kap moving on the edge, and they seemed to work. The problem is that he does not stick with these things, and he continuously resorts back to old plays that do not work. See jumbo packages and read option plays.

Spot on. Here is the difference between a good DC and a poor OC. Iupati gets hurts and in the critical drive from the 20 (to get in FG position with over 2 minutes to go), their DC calls a blitz right where Iupati would have been resulting in a 9 yard loss. Brilliant. Denver is facing KC and game plans to target the youngest and newest CB on the team in Marcus Cooper (won more than lost). Brilliant. Goldson knocks out Brown in the NFC Championship game, Eli immediately goes after Brock for a TD.

Roman? We try a deeper pass with Baldwin (s/h been a P.I.) and the Saints CB blows out his knee. Do we target his replacement one time after that? You already highlighted how real teams counter the blitz, or stacking the box and run blitzing, etc. And I don't want to hear any crap about personnel or the QB's indecisiveness or confidence. Even in this basic college offense, Roman can scheme an AR each time to counter what the defenses are CLEARLY doing.

Like one poster said, if a casual fan can sit on his couch with a beer and easily predict not only whether it will be a run or pass by formation alone but to WHERE we are going with the ball with 80-90% accuracy, then how easy is it for professional DC's to figure out. We have seen all year defensive players (with the dot's on their helmet) call out audibles once they see our formations.

And sadly, this is as good as it gets. We "may" win a game against a team with a winning record at the time we play them but most likely not. This isn't dismissing the culture we have of self-destructing in every facet of a big game esp. at critical times. But this thread is on Roman and HaRoMan's offensive philsophy so let's stick to the topic here.
