Analysis: What’s Up With The Troubled Niners?

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS Sports) — Are the San Francisco 49ers having a Super Bowl hangover? Short on targets, Colin Kaepernick has struggled in two losses. And the rest of the Niners have been anything but super.

In the past two games, the 49ers have been outscored 56-10 by two 2012 playoff teams. In those same two games, quarterback Colin Kapernick has thrown for 277 yards and one touchdown with three interceptions after opening the season with a 400-yard passing game.

It’s way too early to panic. But the 49ers have to get back playing 49ers football. If they don’t, they could be in big trouble. Can head coach Jim Harbaugh get it fixed?
