The San Francisco 49ers should be far more concerned about their failures on offense than their shortcomings this week on defense.
The problems on offense have been evident all season long. The 49ers have struggled converting on third downs all year, and their red-zone problems aren't new either.
I question some of the play-calling by offensive coordinator, Greg Roman. I mean, what was with the naked bootleg on third down inside the ten yard line?
The biggest concern has to be the 49ers protection issues, however. Despite leaving tight end Vernon Davis in to block on many passing plays, the 49ers have given up 18 sacks over the last three games.
The way I see it, the team needs to get Davis more involved in actually catching the ball. It's not like what they're doing is actually working right now.
The bottom line is that the 49ers offense is in disrepair with three games left until the postseason, and things need to turn around quick or any Super Bowl aspirations should be tossed out the window.
