'Roof' about to blow off for 49ers' offense?

By Bill Williamson

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Last week, Greg Roman blamed himself for the struggles of the San Francisco 49ers' offense.

This week, after the unit slumped for a second straight game, the offensive coordinator predicted things are about to change. Even though his unit has scored just two touchdowns and accounted for 22 first downs in the past two games, Roman thinks the 49ers' offense is about to "pop."

"Well, I think it's a function really of making a few more plays, really," Roman said Friday. "You look at that game, we make one or two more plays, we win the game. The week before, we make one or two more plays, we win the game. We're always striving for improvement and we're certainly not a finished product. So, I think those opportunities are out there and the roof's going to blow off. It's going to pop. It's coming. We keep working like we're working and it will come."

The offense's next opportunity is Monday night at Washington.
