First off, I'm really excited for the game this week. Bye weeks may be good for the team, but it sure sucks for the fans!
Anyway, I guess I'm buying into all Crabtree hype going on lately, and am starting to wonder whether the 49er's strength is their running game. Honestly, 49ers have been awful running the ball. Seems to me that the team beat the Cardinals only when they started relying on the pass, and then did the same thing in Minnesota before the whole Favre affair (2 late 80 yard drives to take the lead). I think the Seattle game was a fluke, because the running game has been pretty bad. I'm not sure how much Frank Gore will help if the line doesn't get better.
Seems to me that the 49ers should be a pass-first team, especially with all the talent at WR and TE. Of course, this is all contingent on O-Line play, but I think the 49ers are better at the pass then run.
