49ers' Greg Roman grades the offense on wins and losses

49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman doesn't grade the offense on yards or points, instead focusing on wins and losses.


After a crucial turnover on a questionable play call against the Rams, San Francisco offensive coordinator Greg Roman has come under some scrutiny following the 49ers' 16-13 loss to St. Louis.

Leading by eight late in the fourth quarter, Roman called for an option play which resulted in a turnover and game-tying touchdown for St. Louis. Head coach Jim Harbaugh took responsibility for allowing the play while Roman said said he always goes back and reviews the calls.

Roman didn't say calling the play was a mistake, instead saying it comes down to execution on the field and whether or not the call fit the current situation. Regardless of whether or not a play works, Roman said he always reviews plays to see if they could have done something better.

When it comes to assessing his play-calling and the 49ers offense, Roman didn't highlight yards or points, instead saying it simply comes down to wins and losses.

"If we win the game, I generally think it was good," Roman said, according to CSN Bay Area. "If we don't, it's got to be better. That's how I look at it."
