Schedule, Improving Health Of 49ers Point To Strong Finish This Season

When the San Francisco 49ers lost two games in a row this season, falling to 1-2, some called them the most disappointing team in the NFL. After winning a couple of games and having injured players return to the roster, the 49ers are now primed to remind the rest of the NFL why they were so many people’s preseason Super Bowl pick.

Biggest Issue For 49ers Is Not Lackluster Offense, It’s Defense

With the 49ers sputtering out to a 1-2 start in 2013, everyone is trying to figure out what is wrong with the team many had picked to be the NFC representative in the Super bowl. While most theories are around the offense that has failed to put up points, the real concern is a 49ers defense that is running out of bodies.

Colts Take Advantage Of A 49er Offense Stuck In Neutral

The defense fought hard, but in the end could not hold up. With no help from the offensive side of the ball, the defense was fighting a losing battle, and the result was another resounding loss. This time though, its to a team, that San Francisco figured to beat. While there is reason to be concerned, the 49ers will be alright, and still on track for their 2013 goals.

49ers May Move Vernon Davis To Wide Receiver

Vernon Davis the tight end could soon be Vernon Davis the wide receiver. He played exclusively at wide receiver during the 49ers’ most recent minicamp. With Michael Crabtree sidelined for at least six months, the 49ers don’t have many options.
