San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman expressed confidence that the offense will come around.
The 49ers have lost their past two games and have generated less than 200 yards of offense each week.
“We’re certainly not a finished product,” Roman told Bay Area reporters. “I think those opportunities are out there and the roof is going to blow off. It’s going to pop. It’s coming.”
Next up: The Redskins, and their 28th-ranked defense following games against the third-ranked Panthers' defense and fourth-ranked Saints defense.
“I’d say the past few weeks have not been up to our standard or the standard of production that we expect or work for,” Roman said. “It’s simply a function of getting back to work, identifying problems, fixing those problems and re-emphasizing the positive things.”
What about quarterback Colin Kaepernick? He has 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions with an 81.8 quarterback rating.
“As far as his development of a quarterback, this is extremely valuable for him to go through these types of situations, battle his way out and learn from them,” Roman said. “To play quarterback in this league is a tall task over time there are so many different things you’ll encounter, so many different players you’ll play with, all those different things that contribute to your growth as a quarterback.”
