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.

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.
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.

Michael Crabtree is promising to be back. And San Francisco 49er fans are hoping that means back this season.
