Yeah, that's not a Typo. According to footballoutsiders.com, the San Francisco 49ers are #1 in overall team efficiency (35%) again after dropping 3 spots last week. 5th on offense, 4th on defense, and 23rd on Special Teams. We barely edge out the packers (34.1%), followed by the Giants, Bears, and Broncos (all about 31% total DVOA).
** RED FLAG: 49ers are 30th in game-to-game variance, i.e. we're one of the least consistent teams in football. The 49ers, Jets, and Bills are all about the same in variance, so we're basically the least consistent team. STEP IT UP
49ers - #1 Rushing Offense, #11 Passing Offense, #5 rush defense, #6 pass defense.
