Matt & Mindi: Greg Roman is focused on getting 49ers to Super Bowl
Having upcoming boxer the 49ers training facility on Thursday and if you can hear it behind -- it'd be simulated Georgia Dome crowd noise. Loud music playing we just got done hearing but it's just up the construction which is an ongoing so ideas and I -- him -- you Brett -- -- this is a native 49ers have dealt with before I think the players say. You more than anything you talk about -- nights they've had to deal with Seattle. Every year and everyone says -- -- to hear that without a doubt that is the largest and it allowed us. And stadium they've never played him so I mean I think it's really it's going to be an issue but I had to get some. Think it's early camp yeah I mean they've handled. New Orleans in Dallas allowed environment and they won that game. Of course early in the season I think led most pure they get along -- calling cap for next handling. So -- we can throw out the dome and in Minnesota. But they've played in. It -- Saint Louis. And then this course Seattle's -- so. Yelled at they've dealt with -- it's sometimes better than others that I as far as. Where it rains on the concerns of prayers go in. Bad somewhere in the middle and I don't think it's guy -- would be really surprised. It takes this game comes down to the foreigners inability to get a play off of time and his really. You're talking about the pistol formation and every option was 49ers have done more and more added down the stretch hitting that is not really conducive. She really having to worry about loud crowd nice and mean we'll see how that goes obviously hits yet do silent -- -- -- But the one thing that we learn more about that. About the read option for this team a lot of players actually did not like it at first they were used to a pro style offense they didn't think he thought was too gimmicky -- -- -- high -- -- -- Frank -- very open and they -- and like you say I'm from Miami I'd like -- -- does that to him. Wasn't about him and some of the alignment sort of thought that it was funky to look like high school or college but it was the thing that makes it's. You need -- weather I think the selling point is that you can still run the power type of some things so. A big powerful offensive lineman -- -- just lineup but especially guys -- them. Can still do that with the pistol offense so it's. And I think that's Q would you talk about. Getting to the line of scrimmage and checking out of a plane into another play I don't think -- to do that as much of the read option because. The read option itself is is that check it's. Keep the ball. In the belly of the running back or as great Roman says. -- get out there -- nothing in between it's either the soft feathery here it is mr. running back or it's just taken away from him so. That in itself creates one less variable that. That -- players had to contend with as far as getting to the line of scrimmage and game changing the player keeping us. And also speaking to some of the players about it is that the one thing the 49ers. Running so well they can't call it almost full -- because of the players that involves a Michael James Frank Gore. And calling cabernet and so they say because of that to be really hard for opposing defense is to stop that it really comes down to open space tackling and how you stop calling cap for -- and that and for two games to go that's gonna be the biggest challenge. For defense is opposing the very next. Yeah and I think -- of this this matchup is -- -- because of that the south -- rain could bottom third week. It in total defense which the NFL uses yards but yet in. Scoring defense they're very good Greg Robinson they're very very good situation on defense in depth. They're good on third downs -- get in the red zone so that's where the foreigners are gonna have to. -- there hey in this game bids and converting on third downs when they get inside the red zone and keep David Akers over there on the sidelines had a run in to kick extra points and outfield. Us and we also heard from again Tuesday as well on his big thing is like don't be fooled by the stats. The easy watched -- game and what he's seen. From the Falcons running game right now as a Michael Turner whose ranking very well and does pose some problems with -- speed and also don't be. Fooled by the stat sheet and think that all -- Smith isn't playing well because you when you think about it too how many times did Aaron Rodgers get the ball out quickly. And so the Falcons like to throw the ball down the field. Maybe they'll be more opportunities for all the Smith to get some hits on Matt Ryan but think about this if he's back there. -- three to have more seconds of thought that was an awful lot of stress on thrown around Chris -- Carlos Rogers to cover those wide receivers and that. Yeah everybody I know what we're here in the Bay Area and everybody likes to think for our -- -- roll over the Falcons. And when you look at. The match ups I think there's no question they favored 49ers but if -- to pinpoint something. That gives you a reason that that could happen by the Falcons can win this game coming beside the point that the number one seed their home kids. The 49ers. That the complexities. For the -- defense of covering all those weapons so they're gonna have to get. Didn't pass rush against Matt Ryan -- take away you'll make him get rid of the ball quickly underneath the -- defense and not beat them over the top and has looked for Harrison. Chris -- a very good job this season. Not letting. Receivers get over the job and when things that we know Matt Wright is quick. Taking the ball out anyway so he he is going to do that big test is set for twelve round what growth we've seen -- hands. In just his second place here as a starter rated number one. I drove the ball focus is the best tackling corner. In the league -- and he goes up against some pretty formidable competition yeah I think he's I think he's done a really good job -- wise to. All quarterbacks in this league with the way the rules are set up the other candidates. Set up to fail he's done a really good job the other one taking yes -- Rodgers that was a nice play in any. He showed his old punt return former caddie is a punt return it at Texas and he looked like a punt returner returning bad interception. Also said he should have had an interception late in the game in his battle these kind of if he called their for the pass interference in the end zone by that time that the game was over but. California guys continue their work here the music continues the player I think there are a pretty good spot now -- couple games couple days. Three days now before the game and a -- yes we have the rock concert got behind as the 49ers loved ones I'll practice on Friday -- I'll be here for that they -- the buses and off they go to Atlanta one more thing I talked to Greg -- a little bit about the whole Jacksonville thanked Jacksonville Jaguars. GM his David Caldwell break Romans old college roommate and teammate they hired it. It's either head coach Gus Bradley the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks so. Greg Roman was it kind of I don't know where this whole thing started. About you know me being -- -- did everything for Jacksonville and I said well it's pretty obvious when it started. Connect the dots you know you know it's. David Caldwell pretty well but. Greg told me that you don't let me he's never. It fluctuated throughout my. What the job is at hand the job is to get the 49ers. Into the Super Bowl creating game plan to beat. The Atlanta Falcons on Sunday because he can't over the pretty darn good life. Against the Packers last week let's see if he can replicated. And then. Have the players executed as well they did that first game planning -- Packers now right now I have the overhead airplanes coming from the local airport so we have all the -- this -- louder and I think in the Georgia -- I met -- Friday for the final match meaning that for the NFC championship game.
