Why would Greg Roman call Sprint Right Option twice?

The 49ers called Sprint Right Option twice in the red zone on Sunday. Kaepernick takes the snap, takes three steps to the right and fires to the flanker, Michael Crabtree, who is sprinting to the sideline. If the quarterback doesn’t throw it by the third step, the play is over except for the QB’s attempt […]

Why the 49ers-Cardinals game matters

There are two reasons why this game against the Arizona Cardinals matters deeply to the 49ers. First, there are playoff implications. If the 49ers win, they’ll be 11-4-1. They’ll get the No.2 seed and a first-round Bye if the Packers lose to the Vikings. If the Packers beat the Vikings, the 49ers get the No.3 […]

Harbaugh: “Greg Roman is the play caller.”

SANTA CLARA – Thursday, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat learned the 49ers divvy up the offensive game planning. Today, I asked Jim Harbaugh if they divvy up the play calling, too. ME: Does Greg Roman call all of the offensive plays during the game, or does John Morton call the pass plays, and Geep Chryst […]

49ers offense not really Greg Roman’s

Jim Harbaugh constantly asserts that “this is Greg Roman’s offense” when speaking of the 49ers offense. Is that the case? It is likely the offensive game plan is not just Roman’s, but an amalgam of input from the assistant coaches. Two players on the 49ers confirmed this exclusively to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat Thursday […]

An easy way for Greg Roman to improve

The 49ers offense is easy to fix only if Jim Harbaugh will allow the other 49ers offensive assistant coaches to get more involved with input of personnel groupings, formations, movement schemes, runs, play action passes and drop back passes as well as Red Zone, short yardage, goal line, 3rd downs, 2-minute, four minute, coming out […]
