Roman doesn't do this. And I'm not sure why he doesn't, because Colin would benefit from it. He has him running deeper plays. I think they need to do more play action deep passes like the steelers used to do.
I do feel when Colin gets pressured he's not as good of a quarterback but who is? Russell Wilson is much better at avoiding the rush and making plays downfield.
Other factors for this game....Not having Vernon kills us because he does so much for the offense. He got hurt in the colts game and we weren't the same. But it's no excuse for not being able to manufacture offense.
OVERALL THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THAT the Niners have no Rhythm to their offense. The other great teams in the league do I think it's because Roman is always scheming the other team and trying different things. QUICKER OFFENSE AND USING MORE OF OUR WEAPONS WOULD HELP US A LOT.
And yes for sure, we were spoiled by Bill Walsh. The Niners still have a lot of games to play and if we got a wildcard we can do damage. We can keep getting better and learn from this game.
Bolded and underlined. There is no rhythm to this offense at all, its so random, like they are tossing spaghetti at the wall. Watch any quality offense in the NFL and there is a flow to it, its undeniable, when they get rolling, you know s**t just got real. 49ers have done that a few times on some long drives against the Cardinals and Rams for example, but not often enough and especially against better defenses where it feels as if the coaches just psyche themselves out and completely get away from what has been working.
