the good news is the journalist have been lurking here and are starting to parrot the things we've said on a national front.

i just don't see why anyone is surprised our offense is dead last in passing when a team stacks the box and roman's response is to continue to stack the box with even more non essential personnel.
he has to lead the league in non essential personnel players running blocking routes. and fb going out for passes.

we don't even have a 2nd wr on the field half of the time.. how on earth is that even possible?
i wish harbaugh would take over already and get this guy out of here. harbaugh knows offense and was a QB for a long time so he knows the game inside out.

I was thinking about that too... but look at who Harbaugh is, he wants his hand in all the cookie jars not just offense. I dont think he would be comfortable taking his hand off the pulse of the team to focus solely on offense. But it would be awesome if he put Rathman or Chryst in charge of calling plays, or anyone on the offensive staff but Roman.

"By taking away Kaepernick's running, Roman and Harbaugh are not utilizing his skills optimally. They are putting shackles on him, which has caused Kaepernick to lose his confidence and the swagger he played with last year."

"This problem is something that should not be as prevalent this late in the season. Roman needs to get the plays to Kaepernick faster, enabling him to make the audible and adjust when he needs to.The lack of urgency in getting the plays called quickly results in the 49ers wasting timeouts, and there is no excuse for that."


"Keeping Colin Kaepernick in the pocket at all times reduces his effectiveness. It is very surprising that offensive coordinator Greg Roman does not employ more roll-outs and moving pockets for Kaepernick."

"For some reason, there is also a complete disdain for the screen pass. When an offensive line is having trouble with a defensive front, the screen is a way to keep that pass rush at bay.The 49ers rarely employ the flare pass to the backs or a checkdown, which can get positive yardage when the alternative is trying to force the ball into coverage.With Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James, a simple flare pass can turn into a big gainer, as Hunter and James have the elusiveness to make big plays in the open field. Combined, Hunter and James have only three catches on the year."

LOL, this. Some of the articles I've seen recently make me think some journalists are lurking in the Webzone.

Its absolutely f**king inexcusable, anyone who still defends Roman at this point is an undercover Raiders or Seahawks fan as far as I'm concerned.

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?

for real. Like I said in my groupthink post, it has gotten to a point that Roman will be kicked to the curb if we don't have success. Whether Roman is a side-effect of a mentality created by Harbaugh remains to be seen but if Harbaugh wanted to stick with short, quick passes and rarely go deep why draft Kaepernick and why trade Alex Smith?

Harbaugh wanted Kaepernick because of his arm strength and running ability yet they rarely employ either facet of Kaepernick's ability anymore. Like I've been saying for weeks is it because Kaepernick has a weak spot in his game or is it because we have an inept offensive coordinator?

Roman's schizophrenic behavior regarding game plans used to bother me but now I just watch and wait for it to happen. Also Roman needs to come up with more creative formations because as everybody on this forum has pointed out, we have the most blatantly predictable formations in the NFL now. 1 WR to the left with a TE on the right and the FB and RB in the backfield ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS means run for us. Even against 8 or 9 man fronts we never take a chance on that WR beating his man and getting the ball to him before the safety can get there.

I'm at peace now with how bizarre our offense is so I'm just going to continue to guess the plays based on the formations for the rest of the season and enjoy the ride. Like I also said in my groupthink post, I hope Jim takes a page from his brother and fires Roman to ignite a spark in the locker room. Our team is so stacked that we can't find ways to utilize every player(even though I really disagree with concept and believe it just an excuse) that we can't honestly think that aren't able be a diverse offense.

At this point it falls on the coaches and much like that BR article said, Harbaugh isn't getting fired anytime soon, it would require something monumental like back-to-back 4-12 seasons or worse for him to be fired. So Harbaugh needs to not get complacent with consistent playoff berths and realize he needs to shake up his coaching staff if he truly believes in the players on his roster.

I already live in Utah and had to watch the Jazz be happy with being an 8th seed playoff team year and year out and never make the move required to push them over the top. I don't know if I can stand watching the 9ers become a team that is happy with marginal success -- this franchise needs more SBs not divisional titles.

cannot seem to get hunter and james into space

so spread it out and run them up the middle
this is who we have calling the plays. he should have been fired after the super bowl.
