How the San Francisco 49ers Can Be Exposed in the 2013-14 Playoffs
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports
Offensively, will the 49ers be able to live up to their potential in the playoffs?

Donning the most prodigious roster in professional football, led by one of the NFL’s top coaches in Jim Harbaugh, the San Francisco 49ers look like a very strong candidate to traipse through the 2013-14 playoffs and onto Super Bowl XLVIII.

From the influential staff, to the intrepid personnel, the inventive system and players on hot streaks, the 49ers have everything they need to get the job done, and then some.

But for those that have watched the team this season, you could argue this was one of the uglier double-digit-win seasons for any team in 2013. It was a long road to 12-4, and with the questions flying in about the 49ers the way they were, it was easy to come to the realization that this club is still far from perfect.

For the most part, the obstacle keeping them from hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy for a sixth time in franchise history is themselves.

And that's an even more trying affliction to deal with—one that is self-imposed. 

Can they continue to improve in the postseason or can they do enough to mask their faults for three more of the toughest games of their professional lives? The following will take a look at the San Francisco football team; examining its faults and a few of the pitfalls the team must beware en route to a Super Bowl.

Without further delay, here is how the big, bad 49ers can be exposed in playoffs.
