I think the lack of creativity on offense and taking what is given. When teams are bringing more into the box and even anticipating a run run run offense I think play action would have opened up quite a few more things for the offense.
Fear and conservativeness also played a role at the end of the ball game. With Singletary trying to force a ball control offense and refusing to throw the ball did not generate one first down and forced the defense to win the game. Other than that, great game. Go Niners!!!
