That wasn't the way Kaepernick and the 49ers wanted to start the game.

Whether you want to point to the passing, running or blocking game or an inopportune injury at an inopportune time, the San Francisco 49ers’ 29-3 Week 2 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, September 15, showed a team that was flawed in numerous ways.

While both defenses came in as the most heralded in the league, it was the Seahawks who emerged as the clear favorites in the NFC West. The Seahawks were everything the 49ers were not Sunday night, showing balance on offense as well as throughout their defense.

Frank Gore could not get it going offensively, the 49ers’ receivers were blanketed throughout the game and Colin Kaepernick turned the ball over far too frequently.

Obviously for San Francisco this was just one game in 16-game season. And for as bad as they looked in this one, forgetting just how dominant they looked against the Green Bay Packers would be foolish. At the end of the day, however, there were clearly some aspects in their game that they need to correct.

And, for as bad as they played, the 49ers still had a few bright spots that they can build on in the weeks going forward.

Here are five critical takeaways from the 49ers’ Week 2 loss.
