I wouldn't mind seeing what Jacobs can do. Can't be worse than our other WRs.
Won't matter anyway if Kaep never even targets him. We are a two read passing offense at this point (Davis, Bolden), any other receiver could be open all day long, just as Williams claimed he was, but by the time Kaep goes through his two progressions, he's either sacked, or running for his life. I just don't get why they can't fix this, it's not the receivers, or Kaep, its Roman not putting his players in the best position, and his inability to adjust to defenses when his game plan isn't working. Maybe Crabtree makes a difference when he's back, but I have no faith in Roman, so I doubt it.
This. What makes me even more frustrated about our offensive woes is that there's so much talent on this team that will probably never get their shot here because Roman can't or flat out will not utilize the talent he has, for whatever reason - stubbornness, incompetence, lack of creativity, most like a combination of the three.
The passing offense could use a huge boost and yet, he has McDonald blocking 90% of the time and a healthy LMJ was sitting on the bench first half of the season when we could have been throwing screen passes his way. s**t makes no sense. Roman should've been gone after he made perhaps one of the biggest play calling blunders in the history of the Super Bowl which, in part, cost us another championship.
I want to see what Chuck has and give him a shot, but I know it will be no use. Kap won't look at him and Roman will not put him in a good position to succeed. I have no faith in Roman whatsoever, the longer he stays he'll just drive the team into the ground and I doubt Crabtree will help much this year coming off an injury like that.
