From a concept point of view, I think there is a problem with scheme. The red zone has been a problem since the Alex smith days. So in my opinion lack of players or an inexperienced QB doesn't explain all the redzone difficulties we've had since Harbaugh has been coach.
Now from just a scheme point of view, I don't think we've used Bruce Miller enough as a receiver in the red zone. Also - other than gore - we don't have a fullback that is a reliable short yardage back. Miller is good as a blocker and he's developing as a receiver, but as a short yardage back, I feel he does not have the vision needed for that position. I feel, from a scheme point of view, if the inside run game was more powerful, the play passes to the tight ends would be more productive. Goodwin has been a decent center while he was with us, but he was more of a position blocker. This kind of power run scheme, I think, needs a really powerful center to operate at top efficiency.
