First off, Roman likely would have been offered at least one head-coaching gig had the 49ers been eliminated before the Super Bowl. As all the spots were filling up, he was still coaching.
But, hey, having another go with the 49ers can't be so bad, right?
Well, it doesn't help that Michael Crabtree is out indefinitely and versatile tight end Delanie Walker signed with the Tennessee Titans.
Sure, Roman signed a two-year extension on Wednesday, but that was a given. A coach as revered as Roman deserves a shot to be a head coach, and he'll have to prove he can lead an effective offense with injuries and inexperience at wide receiver to maintain his standing as one of the league's best offensive coordinators.
He may be up to the task, but all things considered, it hasn't been a great offseason for him.
