San Francisco 49ers: Biggest Preseason Disappointments so Far
Derick Hingle-USA TODAY Sports
The loss of Michael Crabtree is a serious blow to the 49ers.

The San Francisco 49ers have played two exhibition games. We have seen the defense play very well, not allowing a touchdown in eight quarters.

The offense has been inconsistent, and many players in the starting unit have only played one series in each of these first two games. The reserves have not fared well, and this underscores the need for the 49ers to stay as healthy as possible.

Two key injuries have got to be the biggest disappointments the 49ers have faced. Losing Michael Crabtree is a huge blow. With Crabtree and also Mario Manningham out for several weeks, the 49ers need another receiver to step up and fill the void. This has not happened, as yet.

Defensive back Chris Culliver was lost for the season with a torn ACL. Although Culliver played a large role last year, the 49ers do have some depth at his position to cover for his loss.

Outside of these two injuries, let's take a more detailed look at five other disappointments in the 49ers' training camp.
