Our Defensive Coordinator, Vic Fangio

Whitner has also.
Needs to mix it up a lil' bit to create some pressures.
We beat the Packers.

The 49ers are on a 5 game win streak at the halfway mark. Without Aldon Smith and with some injuries.

I'm fine with Fangio and I think a lot of other people are also.
We really need to re-tool our front 3. I hope we use one of our 2 second round picks on a space eater. Our run D is nowhere near what it use to be.
lol

as they gave up only 10 points and nobody even sniffed 100 yards. 1 play and that's the difference.

they gave up 10 points today. this thread should be left entirely alone
If we can beat the Saints with Craig Dahl as our starting safety, I will send Vic a prostitute.
In the Fox Sports week 16 review there is a nice mention about Vic Fangio.

Ron Rivera, Chip Kelly, or Bruce Arians may win the NFL's Coach of the Year award this year, but San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio is my pick for Coordinator of the Year. Don't recognize Fangio's name? That's fine. The 55-year-old defensive coach who got his first NFL gig in 1986 is cool with that. I'm sure 49ers fans would rather it be that way too. They don't want him going anywhere.

Though the rival Seahawks D has gotten a lot more media attention this season, San Francisco's defense is clicking at exactly the right time, despite a rash of personnel changes and injuries that'd all but cripple other teams. The unit is ranked third in the league in yards per game, third in points against per game, and sixth in takeaways.

If anything, San Francisco'€™s defense is peaking at precisely the right time. Whereas other defensive units -- Kansas City and New Orleans, specifically -- have seen their numbers dip in recent weeks, the 49ers seem to only be getting better. After giving up 28, 29, and 27 points in its first three games, San Francisco hasn't given up more than 20 points in any of the 11 games since. No coincidence, the 49ers are 9-2 in that stretch.

Vic Fangio isn't a man of many words and he certainly isn't a "look at me" coordinator whose name seems to show up in the headlines. But if we're handing out some assistant coach hardware, he'd be the first guy I'd look to this year. What he's done with the 49ers defense is nothing short of super.

Lol, the team is 10-4 and people are still complaining about Roman.

No doubt. Its gotten out of hand. Some of these posters have gotten so bad about it that it has completely taken over their ability to post about anything other than how bad Roman sucks. Its played out. I wish some of these whiny little beotches would allow themselves to remember just how bad the 49ers play callers were before Roman. Then look around the league and see how bad so many teams have it when it comes to play callers. The 49ers don't have the best OC in the game but he's still very good. Its hard to have top tier passing game when you've had garbage at WR for most of the season. Its also very hard to have top tier passing game when you are top five in rushing year in and year out. Roman has been improving as the roster has improved but I guess he gets no credit for that. All these whiners can feel free to jump off the 49ers bandwagon and onto a number of these pass happy offenses at any time. Wont hurt my feelings any. I like Harbaugh's offense.

It's not that Greg Roman is the worse OC. Far from it. It's just his lack of usage of the talent that was available. It's going away from the running game in games we had control of. Failure to get players like Vance McDonald, LaMichael James, Jonathan Baldwin (who even though he didn't work out in KC did produce a little in that offense) and Kendall Hunter involved in the offense.

We'll see how we look the remainder of the season and the playoffs. I'm not on the fire Greg Roman bandwagon, but I do know that I've seen offensive coordinators do more with less.
Why are people whiners for pointing out flaws in the system?

How would we know that the WRs we had were garbage if they were lucky to get targeted once a game? And I didn't know WRs were the only eligible passing options? Pretty sure we could have utilized our RBs (Hunter, Gore, LMJ) and our rookie TE McDonald better in our abysmal passing game. Nobody is saying become the pass happy Patriots or Broncos but at least a competent passing offense; prior to Crabtree's return, it was bush league status. If you're happy with that, then you have disturbingly low expectations and standards.

Whether it's more Kap, more the receivers, or more Roman himself, one thing is clear: the offense , particularly the passing offense, has been garbage practically all season. If our defense wasn't elite, I have little faith our offense would carry us to a 10-4 record.

Guy may get a HC shot soon.
