The 49ers’ offense looked sharp and much improved compared to last season.
In San Francisco’s 33-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks, Niners’ quarterback Alex Smith was 15-20 for 124 yards and most importantly, no turnovers.
Smith played with a cool head and made good decisions. He played the way you want your quarterback to play—calm, cool, collected.
In addition, he scored the team’s only offensive touchdown on a one-yard scramble at the end of the first half.
The offensive line did not allow a sack and dominated Seattle’s defensive line.
Similar to Dallas, San Francisco’s running game was worrisome. Against a bad Seahawks’ defense, 49ers Pro Bowl running back Frank Gore compiled only 59 yards on 22 carries.
If the 49ers want to have a shot at beating the Cowboys, head coach Jim Harbaugh has to open his playbook and attack Dallas’ secondary.
With cornerbacks Terence Newman and Orlando Scandrick out of the game, the Niners’ receiver corps should be able to make some big plays down the field.
