But the 49ers offense under Harbaugh & Roman makes its money off of pre-snap adjustments at the line, audibling into the second play called in the huddle (KILL KILL KILL!), and executing motion before the snap to create mismatches.
The 49ers CANNOT DO THAT CONSISTENTLY in an environment like Seattle. They simply can't hear all the calls. It simplifies the entire offense and makes us look very vanilla.
It's pretty damn simple. I don't know why fans can't see that after watching this team for two years in this offense. Yes, Seattle is good, but I think we beat them at Candlestick 8 times out of 10 if everyone is healthy.
But yea, Seattle is good. I'm just not gonna worry until they either blow us out at home or we have to play them in Seattle in the playoffs. It is what it is.
Your claim is absurd. If your offense can't work in hostile environments...guess what....you gotta fix your offense. 49ers won't have the luxury of playing every game at home in the playoffs, if they have to travel to Seattle, they need for their offense to work its not just enough to say "well, we can't do our pre-snap adjustments so its not fair." Simply, they need to figure out a way to get it done.
