Kaepernick: 13 completions, 3 picks, 3 sacks. / Gore: 16 yards, 1.8 average. / V.Davis: 20 yards. / O-Line: In shambles.
Total offense: 207 yards. Read/Option? Solved. They crashed Gore, stuffed the middle on every play, and gladly let Kapernick be the target. "If intimidation is your game plan, I hope you have a better one." Guess what? They did. And every other team will copy it.
Injured: Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, Eric Reid, Ian Williams, Mario Manningham, Eric Wright, Quinton Dial, Chris Culliver, Darius Flemming, Tank Carradine, Marcus Latimore, Nick Moody, Ray McDonald, LaMichael James. Off-season losses: S Dashon Goldson, QB Alex Smith, TE Delanie Walker, NT Isaac Sopoaga, ILB Larry Grant, KR Ted Ginn, WR Randy Moss, AJ Jenkins, K David Akers. That's 23 players off a 53-man roster.
We have no punt returner, wide receiver, tight end, running threat, or effective offensive scheme. Our D-line is weak up the middle, our corners are weak down the back, and our best tackler has a broken hand.
Our QB looks worse than Josh Freeman, and the QB we let go is 2-0. There's no one to throw to, and no where to run.
How can anyone not think this is a problem?
