problem is, we're probably the only team in the league to never score a TD on our first drive.

We have done this twice in as many weeks now. I really like this strategy and the fact we get the ball after halftime. If we are down we get a chance to narrow the gap and if we are up we get a chance to put a lil more distance between us.

What do you guys think? deffer or receive?

I don't think it makes a difference. We go three and out anyway either at the beginning of the game or at the beginning of the 2nd half.

defer, i trust our defense to get the job done more than our offense

With an average NFL Net punt being about 35 yards, if you hold the opponent inside their own 45 before forcing a punt its a success. If you force a 3-and-out you'll get it at midfield.
Nobody has scored a point on us on the first drive this year. That's why we like our defense out there first.
49ers have not given up a point on opposing teams 1st drive.

Defer
