Has the Defense become weaker than the Offense?

Has the Defense become weaker than the Offense?

Over the past few weeks, it appears the D has regressed. Has it regressed enough that the offense now has to carry us through the playoffs? Has the offense with the Kaep2Crabs connection become more exciting than the BowWillis train or the Smith brothers? I know that sounds ludicrous,but it seems they just are not making plays anymore on D and the O is more exciting to watch. Thoughts?
The Offense is the reason the Defense has played poorly. Not enough TOP to let them rest.
I think it is more than that. If you look at all of our losses, we struggled against mobile QBs (Ponder, Wilson, and even Bradford can run if he wants), and speedy slot WRs. Our pass rush has become non-existent against good teams. I do not count that AZ game. The D looks worn and tired and I hope they get it together over the bye.
I thought our defense is ranked in the Top 5. Our offense is far from reaching that. So, the answer is NO!
dont get where anyone would think the offense is strong right now--it lacks identity
If you do the eyeball test, who do you think is playing better right now? Stats do not always tell the whole story

What you said. Whatever happened to the WCO? We're back to the low percentage, high risk, low percentage bears/ravens game. We know we can do the long game, now we need to get back to the high percentage short and medium passes to convert third downs, and extend the running game and TOP to keep the defense refreshed.
Still too many 3 & outs.

The D starters spend too much time on the field - Crap rotation.

The D still wins Championships and in our case - it's not even close. The D is our ticket.

Agreed. We're not methodically driving down the field enough like we used to. It's either an explosive play or we punt/make a field goal attempt. The running game and short/medium pass game is just a complete mess right now, and needs to be figured out with Kaep back there.

Seriously? The O is not stronger than the D. The offense is better than last season, and definitely better with C. Kaep. at QB, with all kinds of room for growth too. But better than the D? I don't think so! Certainly opposing offenses are doing a better job against us this season (like more quick throws to blunt our pass rush, and chipping/doubling Aldon), but lets not get ahead of ourselves here fellow fans. Our D is the corner stone of this team. And let us never forget it!!
lol
This must be a question about the 1994 49ers.

Kaepernick. He is a type of QB who looks deep very often and toolate gets to the underneath stuff.

Smith is the opposite he briefly looked deep and then threw short.

A combination of the two would be ideal.
