Greg Roman, is he really good?

So I am watching this NE-Denver game and noticing all of the halftime adjustments Bellichick made to get his team back in the game. Did the same thing vs Niners when it looked like we were going to take everything they owned. Why is it that our coaches actually make anti-adjustments? For instance, when we played the Colts and Gore was averaging 7 YPC in the first half, they adjusted at halftime to only give him the rock a handful of times in the 2nd half. Has anyone seen our team make any halftime adjustments while losing that allowed us to win the game in the Harbaugh era?
Our coaches were good at half time adjustments until this season. Remember the NFC Championship? We can't have a short term memory in light of our recent struggles.
last game against the Eagles back in 2011 was some great adjustments
I honestly don't know what the hell is wrong with Roman this season. Maybe all the talk of him getting a HC job has gone to his head and he is trying to show how creative his playcalling is in order to impress to get a HC job. But he is totally disregarding setting up plays for later in the game, ignoring fundamental plays like screens and slants to keep the offensive flow going and failing to allow Colin to get into any kind of rhthym with this simplistic passing game. I'm tired of him saying " it starts with me.." and have him not do anything to change it. But unless he gets a HC job I doubt Harbaugh parts ways with him unless Jed forces him to do so.

That game was awesome, that was the game right there that made me believe in the staff and the whole team that were legit
I hate seeing other teams constantly using slants and screens and we don't use them once

It's like our coaches are stuck in the f**king Stone Age.
Is it Roman or JH? It's a fair question.

At some point during games JH has to see that it isn't working and override Roman's play calling.

Or is he already doing that?

Or the much scarier conclusion, that Roman is only running the offense that Jim Harbaugh wants him to run and has little choice in the actual types of plays called.
Every time I see the offense snap the ball with 1 second on the play clock or call a time out to prevent the penalty I'm reminded of Singletary & Company.
Greg roman sux. Cant wait til he's gone. This 49er offense looks like the 1988 Chicago Bear offense. Great Defense but no offense. Its not for lack of talent. its lack of in game adjustments & formations & playcalling. He blows.

I was wondering what happened to this as well. The Niners got off to slow starts seemingly every game last season. Then adjustments would be made and they would come storming back in the second half.

It seems this year's team has somewhat reversed that trend. They're trying to jump out to early leads and then simply sit on them and hope the defense holds up. If the Niners can't get that early lead this year, they seem relatively helpless to get back in a game. Maybe it's the receivers, but it really seems to be a team wide problem the more I think about it. I know I ripped on Roman earlier in the thread (and I still think he bears the brunt of the responsibility as it is the coordinator's job to put the offense in a position to win) but this offense as a whole seems lost.

I would venture to say it starts with Roman and his complex offense, complete with all the shifts he likes to make. Then add in an over-coached QB who is thinking far too much out there, a receiving corps that is essentially new, and some goofy issue with play calls getting in late and I think it's a recipe for disaster. At the very least it is a way to significantly slow an offense.

Never thought anyone could make Jimmy Raye look like an offensive genius. Greg Roman does. Jimmy Raye's playbook consisted of run-run-run-punt. In all fairness, Greg Roman has a little more variation in his scheme...he will surprise us on occasion with run-run-pass-punt. The Niners offense will not be consistently dynamic until we get a real offensive genius as our OC.

There are times when the only one that is being confused by all the elaborate pre run shifting is our own team. Tick tock.....watch the play clock! Problem that you run into is when you start every play under 5 seconds on the play clock, you are always in hurry up panic mode.
