NEW ORLEANS — The 49ers just beat the Saints 31-21. Here are the grades for the 49ers coaches.
Coaching: B-. The 49ers committed a whopping 10 penalties – that’s on the head coach.
Greg Roman did not establish the run in the first half for the third time this season. He did not get Vernon Davis involved in the offense for fifth time this season. Most of the offense’s big plays came outside the structure of his offense – Kaepernick would scramble and make the play.
Vic Fangio did a good job confusing Drew Brees. He dropped Ahmad Brooks into coverage and blitzed Patrick Willis, and the Saints were not prepared for those moves.
