49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman moving forward from criticism

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman has moved on from a critical Twitter post last week by the daughter of his boss, 49ers general manager Trent Baalke.

After a 19-3 loss to the Seahawks on Thanksgiving night, Cassie Baalke called for Roman to be gone before quickly deleting her tweet and later shutting down her account altogether.

“Greg Roman can take a hike..the 49ers don't want you no more,” the tweet read. After her words were icons of hands clapping.

Trent Baalke said Friday that both he and his daughter had apologized to Roman, who noted Thursday he had moved on and was prepared to get the offense back on track Sunday against the Raiders at O.co Coliseum after one of its worst performances.

“It was very concise, very clear,” Roman said of the interaction with the Baalkes. “I have children, I understand. We talked about it briefly and it's over. Period. Really not an issue. … I didn't really react in an emotional manner, just kind of a matter-of-fact matter. I understand these kind of things do happen, and we talked about it, cleared it up and it's over.”

“Certainly didn't play the way we wanted to play the last game. Guys came in and took a hard look at it and rolled up their sleeves and got back to work. We've got to go get this win. It's that time of year, and it's that kind of game.”

Roman has coach Jim Harbaugh's support and the coach said Roman will still be calling the plays Sunday as the 49ers (7-5) look to win their four remaining games and return to the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year following three straight trips to the NFC Championship Game.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick went 16-for-29 for 121 yards with two interceptions and four sacks in one of his worst outings as a pro and the 49ers were outgained 379-164. Kaepernick's 36.7 passer rating was the second-lowest of his career behind a Week 2 defeat at Seattle in September 2013.

“We've got a resilient group and we've got a group with a lot of pride. We've got a lot of high-quality, high-character individuals,” Roman said. “Take out the football part of it. We've got guys that I want to be in a trench with. And, when you go out and you have that kind of performance you've got to evaluate it, look at it and we've got guys that are their own harshest critics as well. So, I think we're dealing from the high ground there.”

<b>NOTE: Rookie LB Chris Borland received NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month honors for November, when he had 57 tackles in five games with two interceptions and three passes defensed. “It doesn't mean a whole lot,” Borland said. “We're in the middle of a playoff push.”
