Thats why the cast is so huge...they can't do what they did last year because they don't have the horses.
That isn't an excuse. Roman needs to be able to adapt. Kap needs to be able to adapt. You need to be able to win in multiple ways. Otherwise teams will scheme away that one way to win and you are stuck. When you lose players who match your scheme you need to be able to win another way.
No, the league caught on to the crappy "scheme" and Harbaugh and Roman have been unable or refuse to adjust. Our "genius" scheme consisted of planning to get one guy open or maybe two at the most while everyone else blocks and tries to divert attention away from the AR. This offense was always a joke/gimmick and there was no way it was going to last long term, but I think Harbaugh thought it would. Plain and simple, we run a college offense in the National Football League.
It's not that we dont have the players, it's that it doesnt work anymore and there is no plan B!
And the part about Roman has to be willing to adapt? Are you serious? How many more s**tty performances and losses does it take to figure out Roman is who he is. If he hasnt changed yet why in the world would he start now?!
