It's the formation that at times forces Aldon into coverage and mostly forces the Niners out of their base defense. Smith just did a good job and beat Brown for a td. Besides that everything else got shut down. I didn't see Olsen do much of anything and tight ends usually kill this team. Defense also shut down the screen game. And the pass rush came alive in the 2nd half and just wrecked havoc. Skuta came in and gave Brooks a rest. And as soon as Brooks was back in the game he made a sack. I seen Jerrod Eddie making some plays aswell. Rotation starting to really help guys out this year
I haven't been able to review the whole game yet, but I know that for most of the first quarter the 49ers only once played their 3WR set with nickel and after resorted to their base D, which did put Aldon in coverage.
