It's sad but I think this offense is missing Moss, and D. Walker at this moment. I believe that not having another legit WR besides Crabtree have cost us two potential Super Bowl in the past two seasons and now it is biting us in the azz again. We need another receiver who is a threat to hit a home run. Without that, we are relying on Davis too often and if he's out, we are just incapable of winning games through the air. We are wasting away our window by not seriously addressing our WR issues.
We need to draft a WR well in the upcoming draft.
I can't put the blame on the receivers anymore. They had a few bad plays in the game, but overall, they just did not have the opportunity to get the ball. The play design was atrocious. With a team blitzing the way the Panthers were, this would have been the perfect game to showcase Hunter and James on short screens and pass plays. Manningham was out there moving really well, and he would have been great to put on short crossing patterns. The bottom line is that the plays that were called took way too long to develop, and Kap was under fire because of it. There were several times he took sacks that he should not have, but I think the best we could hope for is that he threw the ball away.
I used to hope that Roman would be able to adapt and get creative with the pass, but I just don't see any change from year one to year three. To be honest, I don't even think he is as good as advertised in the run game. I don't know how many times Frank Gore turns a loss of 3 into a positive gain. I just think that if this team ever expects to be a better offense, Roman has to go, and there is a reason nobody has hired him yet.
Agree entirely, and with what Phoenix is saying.
We could put Payton Manning in this offense and the result would be the same, well he might perhaps tell Roman to stop being an idiot and then run it as he wanted.our losses over the last 3 years are almost identical.
I also agree even on the run game element re. Roman. He's got some creative plays but he also calls some incredibly obvious run plays that get us in trouble, or that Frank manages to convert into a small gain because he's Frank. our offense has peaked with Roman and he needs to go if we want to take the next step.
