Greg Roman 'excited' to see Kaepernick play on Friday
Roman describes the game plan for the first exhibition game of the season on Friday.
You know get ready for first pre season game obviously. For a lot of the young guys. It's. It's -- really exciting week for them they got their first game plan book handed to him today. And gonna go through the process of game week preparation. You know there's no twenty hour rule in the pros so for these guys you know this is their profession. So -- -- from now until game time you know -- try to get him ready to play represent themselves. Best they can't against the Vikings you know a lot of respect for the Vikings. And their organization. And I look forward to getting out there and and you know it and somebody else. Besides ourselves and our guys that are looking forward -- that any questions. Couldn't. You know I don't think he was overwhelmed. I think he was. Grinding through it might be a better way to put it it was a -- you know completely different offense. Playing under center for the first time with a new group of players really haven't played with before. Definitely. You know it's there's a curve there and you know I think I think there's a little bit better opportunity for columnist that you know having had a season under his belt. Approach in this pre season ago when and and you know play with confidence know what he's doing noticing in and a lot of the stuff thankfully won't be seeing for the first time. So. You know I think he'll be. -- really good opportunity for him to show you know show us what he can do. I'd I'd say across the board really I mean really just starting with taken the senator snapped. Understanding defenses which are completely different in the National Football League. Understand protections which are completely different the National Football League I don't wanna turn this into a football clinic but. You know the offense he came from there wasn't a lot of you know. Pro style. Mechanisms to it so. You know that that's a big curve to him to overcome in a short period of time. And -- you know he's grinding through it every day. He's doing really well -- a really like his attitude and really like how he's maturing as a player. And you know he's a unique guy so it'll be is a lot of fun to work worth looking forward to us seeing them out there. It's the same I really do I think we have a little bit more knowledge about. Who we have what they can do I know we have we've we've got a lot more knowledge. But. You know we're -- -- or we're trying to ready you know specifically our offense for the season. Not so much. The pre season a game you know we're trying to get ready for the season and its entirety and a lot goes into that. Lot of forethought a lot of hard work prior to acquire players. And you know. It's part of that is really the process of going through game week. Going through base. Our basic game plan on the first day of the week. Moving on new situation stuff from there and just getting into that process in seeing how guys. Study and prepare and really with the young guys yet you know you're teaching him how to prepare so. You know we got a lot more understanding of of the guys have been here and you know beyond that though it's still a matter of preparing for the season. You know. I don't think there's a lot of game planning -- say that goes into it. You know it's it's in our room we're under pretty basic. We're NASCAR players to do basic tasks. That aren't necessarily. Opponent specific. You know and I think there's a big difference between the pre season and regular season. But. From an evaluation standpoint it's a great tool. Just. Watching players adapt to maybe different formations you might put in for that week. But the plays are pretty. Pretty much basic plays and you know there's not a lot of real game playing that goes into it.
