It's official 49ers have the worst red zone offense in the league

It has to be the play calling, It's so damn predictable.

The other team bunches the middle, we decide to go right down the middle.

No Crabtree, no VD targets.

Spread the WR's out, have Gore lined up next to Alex... He reads weather the coverage will drop back so he can do a draw, or if they attack and send the slants out.

This whole thing about run the ball middle, middle then bootleg (sack, missed throw) and that 1 fade route to our worst receiver will not get us touchdowns.

the worse part is, we had one the best redzone offense with jimmy raye/mike johnson...

This can be misleading just like QBR and QB ratings. The offense got more opps this year as opposed to last year.

Where have you been? Ackers is about to break the FG record, not for the 49ers but for the NFL-four more FGs and he ties it (40). This doesn't include those he missed. What is he 36 out of 41. Out of those, you would prefer to have at least 10 of those to be TD. Yesterday at least 6 opps and we come away with 19 points.
Cards-3 opps for 21 points. 4-5 opps is 12 points, opponents only scores to win it. You can't squander so much opps.
but we're a 100% on 2 pt conversions, thats got to lead the league
Maybe its because the niners offense are not playing with a sense of urgency, knowing that the D will more than likely bail them out. Well they better get their $hit together or it'll be an extra short postseason.
Some of you fans are annoying... we lost to a hot ARZ team that plays even harder against us. We are going to come back and beat PITT next week, and something tells me Patrick Willis will make a miraculous recovery.

Yeah, but to say we're even worse than Indy is pretty bad. To be last is pathetic.

I was thinking the same thing after watching the last game. When the Cards started coming back, you could see how fired up they were on each play in the second half. The 49ers offensive players looked like they had a "what's going wrong?" worry on their faces instead of being fired up & confident. I started thinking early on in the second half the 49ers were going to crumble because of this.
