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

Oh OK it all makes sense now.

LOL! It's cathartic...nothing more. Venting here helps preserve our sanity in the real-world.

there is no philosophy
only a belief.
"whatever i draw up will work and i do not need to change the scheme the players need to execute better"

it's never a play calling issue its always "we just need to execute"

this means nobody thinks any of this is a problem.

when gore doesn't get carries... he had 13 for 46
13 more that's 96... that's 26 for 96 yards that's ball control that's field goal range that's a victory..

same with the panthers but worse 15 more runs we win that going away because at worst we're in field goal range at least 2 more times....

the COORDINATOR has regressed
the offense worked last season under alex and then became unstoppable under kap same offense with a pistol wrinkle

so what do they do?

totally change the offense for unknown reasons...

its sickening

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.

LOL. What exactly is the philosophy? THAT is the million-dollar question right there. Even Chucky said, "I don't know what the heck this offense is..."

I'm still waiting for a college fan to help e out on this one...anyone? See post #1047
The biggest issue is he hasn't adjusted his play calling to the strengths of the current wr core.

he had delanie and crab and moss last year and delanie and moss created a lot of space for crab and vd to operate by their presence on the field

we haven't adequately replaced Moss or Delanie and roman hasn't changed the route concepts to help the current wr crew out and we're stuck in this pathetic passing game
He's really good in losing games!
Can we hang him in effigy at a game?

Now that would really send a message!
What in the hell is roman still doing here? Is Coach Harbaugh blind?

WTF? He's still here?
look at the snap count if you want your head to explode.

manningham wasn't even on the field for 53% of the plays.
baldwin wasn't in the game 63%
hunter got 7 snaps
james got 4

but as long as good ole bruce miller gets his 30 + a game

and gore has 47 of 57 snaps but only runs on 13 of them

solid planning to me
how does gore have 13 carries when 2 te's were on the field for 41 of the 57 plays with miller accounting for 33 snaps

so at least 33 of the 57 plays we had 2 te's 1 fb and 1 rb

and we only ran it with gore 13 times and attempted 31 passes not including sacks

does this plan make sense to anyone?
