49ers coach Jim Harbaugh may be playing ignorant when it comes to criticism of quarterback Colin Kaepernick, but offensive coordinator Greg Roman was a bit more clear-eyed when it comes to the issues plaguing the offense in recent weeks.
Roman said that the offensive production has not been up to snuff and made special notice of Kaepernick’s struggles. Kaepernick is 28-of-53 for 218 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in two straight 49ers losses and Roman said he thinks that the quarterback will be a better player for going through the rough patches that everyone but Harbaugh is willing to admit he’s been dealing with in recent weeks.
Roman also thinks that the offense is going to see better days in the near future.
“We’re certainly not a finished product,” Roman said, via Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. “I think those opportunities are out there and the roof is going to blow off. It’s going to pop. It’s coming.”
The Redskins defense has offered very little resistance to offenses looking to blow the roof off this season, so Monday night could bear better results for the Niners. If it’s more of the same, Harbaugh’s head might have to come out of the sand next week.
