not saying the niners are as good, or better, but they are more balanced. they're the most balanced team in the league, IMO.
In the NFL nobody is invincible, anybody can lose to anybody but there are elite teams and Green bay is one of them. Not sure how you can call the 49ers balanced when the passing offense is second to last. The Steelers are the most balanced team in the league.
Ya want balance?
Niners vs Browns. 174 yards passing, 174 yards rushing.
The rest of the NFL is IMbalanced toward the pass. That's why the Niners are 31st.
The NFL has become more and more of a passing league. Defenses have adjusted and are sheming ways to stop the pass (line the wide 9 in Detroit and Philly). The players are fast edge type players and big run stuffing Bs are dinosaurs.
Enter a team willing to put 6 or 7 O-Linemen in a game with 2 TEs....and Pass. The Niners are STOMPING people. Its a change of philosophy. Don't be surprised if people copy it.
