Sometimes they are but that may be five percent of the time. Converting third downs is what seperate good and bad offenses. Last year the 49ers were a bad offense which was to be expected with the short offseason. This year should be different but we wont know until it happens. The offense lies in Alex Smith's hands, we'll see where he takes it.
