So, two shots in the dark that are part of the same offensive staff and Turner who besides not being available, runs a different offense.
It is a lot easier to complain about the status quo than it is to find a solution. That said, everyone should be prepared to wrap their head around the fact that after having signed a contract extension after last year, unless Roman gets a HC job in the NFL or college, he's going to be back as the OC, especially if the 49ers go deep into the playoffs again.
Geep Chryst was an OC with Chargers (1999-2000).
Chryst was putrid in San Diego as the OC and the offense got worse the longer he stayed. The year he left, the offense shot up the charts from the mid 20's to #11 overall. Too wide of a variance to be coincidence.
