Relax, guys. The thing with those training camp observations from guys like Peter King and such is that they only visit each camp for about a day, because those national writers have to keep up their schedule for their camp tours.
Which means Peter King saw only a glimpse of what is happening with the Niners and if I connect the dots correctly, he was there at one of the days which the beat writers (Maiocco, Barrows, Barber and Brown) collectively described as a rough day for the offense. The days before and after were much better in their descriptions, but if King only sees a single day which happens to be an off day, he can only describe that one, regardless of how inaccurate that might be. Sucks, but I do not care much.
Besides, off day in training camp are very much the norm. Prime example: Take this little nugget from another NFL training camp from a few days ago during an intersquad scrimmage:
This was not a full contact-drill, with only shoulder pads and helmets and no tackling, which should favor the offense, but still: Here we have an offense struggling mightily
during that training camp session, with the starting QB being off
and finishing the scrimmage with measly stats of 8/19 for 90 yards, 0 TDs, 1 INT
, which would have been a pick-six. One unknown rookie safety had tree picks during that session.
The training camp and the starting QB with the lousy stats in question? The Indianapolis Colts and Peyton Manning
. So you see, every team in every training camp can have an will have some off days. It´s no big deal
