You got those two flipped. SF is ranked #8 against the pass and CIN is #25. I also have issue with your presumption that teams don't try to run on us. 44 attempts at 2.5 yards per attempt (lowest in the league), says differently.
No, he's right...Cin#8....SF#25
I here what Joe is saying and agree. Given our second half performances over the past two weeks, I'm concerned for our first away game and their home opener. So many things could go wrong just where we are. Alex has shown ability to get the ball accurately in the intermediate range. We need more of this.
AND WHERE THE FRICK IS VERNION!!!!!!!
I would have expected this kid to go off last week. Even with a dbl team, he would have allowed other receivers to be one-on-one. We must exploit this more in their secondary. The thing is that there defensive weakness is against the run. That is why I expect to see the same type of game plan as the last three weeks as they want to establish the run. At home, I think there DL will step up and load the box daring us to throw.
I expect the first half to be the same, us dominating. It's the second half that really concerns me. If we would have seen our offense attacking the edges and deep during the second half, we would feel a bit better.
Instead as a result, we are swimming the lake of doubt and Jaws is lurking down below.
PS Joe, I don't agree that this loss is Alex's fault. That one INT didn't do it. This loss is solely on Harbaugh and the secondary. That's my POV.
