So is it even certain that Harbaugh is back?

 

Roman got a raw deal in Buffalo.  I still think he’s a good OC.  Really has never had a great QB to work with.

Well he did manage to get the best out of TT.  

 

Unfortunately it wasn’t enough and Rex canned his predictable play calling.

he was an atrocity of a passing game coordinator. brilliant with the run, though.

Maybe Harbaugh has enough attention to detail to make sure plays get in to the QB before 4 seconds are left on the clock.  Rex didn't.  A careful head coach deals with that issue.

Until Roman learns how to develop a passer and passing game we've seen how this ends.

Look at his QB’s....Kaepernick, Tyrod, Lamar.

 

All great on the run and limited passers.  I think he gets the most out of these types of mobile passers.  Roman’s the right coach for Lamar, though it does make you wonder if he can get him to become a different QB, or if he’ll stay with the run-heavy, option offense.

Greg Roman knows how to develop a good running game. What he doesn't know how to do is how to get playcalls in a timely fashion, particularly in the 2 minute drill when the offense is going hurry up. It's a huge glaring flaw he never corrected when he was with the bills. You will never beat a good team if you can't get your ***** together in the most critical moments of a game. 

 

Good luck to the Ravens.

Roman was fired the day after the offense put up 393 yards and 31 points against the Jets.

Rex's D gave up 37 points that day in the loss.

CLEARLY this was the offenses' fault.

It wasn’t based on that one game, but the timing was not ideal for Rex’s twitter mentions

Then he brought in a fat homeless man to help and the defense got even worse.

He is the best running game coordinator of his generation and as we saw in Buffalo when everyone is drafting defenders to stop the pass there is some merit in being ground and indeed pound. His flaws to me have always been around building a complimentary passing game that is coherent with the rushing offense. It sometimes feels like he has had to stop running his offense for a play to try a pass. He'll do a nice job of hiding Lamar and winning some games, not sure it will do much for trying to develop Lamar to be a franchise Quarterback.

True.

 

But Lynn did a better job calling the offense then Roman did. The 3 and outs were significantly reduced once Lynn took over.

 

But I agree. If anyone should've been fired if should've been Rex and his fat brother, not Roman.

And that’s why it didn’t work out. 

 

There is is no arguing that TT’s best season was with GR.  

 

Unfortunately season 2 started off the same way the end of season 1 did.  

 

Too many plays and unproductive results.  

 

Add in to that sufficient game film on how to stop TT.  

 

Make him a QB.

If you're running a predominant run style offense which is the case in Baltimore than Roman is a great choice who is a very innovative mind in that respect. But... if you're saddling him with a QB lacking passing skills and IQ when it comes to reading defenses then you're basically doing the old wash, rinse and repeat cycle.

He's the run game specialist. Makes sense for them.

Lamar Jackson is Lamar Jackson as Tyrod Taylor is Tyrod Taylor. You work with what you got . If you don't have a conventional passer you can't devise a conventional offense. How do you have a coherent offense when from a conventional sense you can't have a coherent offense because the running and passing game don't work in tandem? So you do your best to magnify your strengths and minimize your gaping lack of a passing game. 

 

The issue/problem isn't who the coach is so much as how the offense is constructed. When a qb doesn't have an ability to play a well-rounded game then you as a OC is limited. 

 

Tyrod couldn't add enough to his (passing and vision) game to advance it. The issue is whether Lamar can add to his (passing and vision) game to advance it. Again, you work with what you got.
