Greg Roman’s play calling tendencies: First play of the game

Greg Roman started the 49ers’ last two games, the playoff games against the Packers and the Falcons, with the same play – a quick pass to Michael Crabtree at the line of scrimmage. Roman called that play to start the game against the Patriots a month ago, too.

Roman’s first play call has been a pass six-of-the-last-eight games. Roman has not led off with a handoff to Frank Gore since November 25th against the Saints.

Are Roman’s first play calls becoming predictable? Or do you like them? Should he call a run for Gore to start the Super Bowl? What would you call to start the Super Bowl?
