49ers OC says offense is on verge of a breakout game


The San Francisco 49ers offense has not been the same dynamic unit that helped lead them to a Super Bowl appearance just one year ago, largely due to the inconsistency and struggles from quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

San Francisco’s offense has produced less than 200 yards of total offense in their two straight losses, but offensive coordinator Greg Roman is not too concerned. In fact,Roman believes that the team’s offense is on the verge of a breakout performance that could be coming very, very soon.

“We’re certainly not a finished product,” Roman said, via CSN Bay Area. “I think those opportunities are out there and the roof is going to blow off. It’s going to pop. It’s coming.

“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. It’s simply a function of getting back to work, identifying problems, fixing those problems and re-emphasizing the positive things.”

The 49ers are currently caught up in a tight race for the NFC Wild Card, so if Roman’s prediction proves to be true and Kaepernick is able to step up and take the offense to the next level, we could see the 49ers go on a late run and work their way back to the level they found themselves at last season.
