Posted October 04, 2012 on AP on Fox
Greg Roman is giving the rest of the NFL something extra to think about it when it's time to play the San Francisco 49ers. Roman doesn't like to call them trick plays, but the offensive coordinator's creative play selection last week sparked the 49ers to their most productive performance of the season during a 34-0 rout of the New York Jets. Mixing in a collection of well-timed reverses and option plays and unveiling backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a new weapon, Roman kept the New York defense off balance as San Francisco set season highs in several offensive categories. It also served notice that more new wrinkles could be coming as the 49ers look to expand their offense. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
