Do the 49ers routinely put together lengthy drives, let's say 60 yards or more? From what I could gather most successful drives are relatively short on the basis of great field position.
I wouldn't say routinely...they do struggle on 3rd downs sometimes. When they get their running game going, they can be ball hogs & eat up a lot of clock going the legnth of the field. They take some deep shots every game, but those have been hit/miss on acccuracy. So from my recollection of the season, it is an on/off thing in almost every game.
