49ers defense gives up 311 yards of offense by halftime

Sep 25, 2016 at 2:30 PM--


So much for a struggling Seattle Seahawks offense. The cure was obviously a matchup against the San Francisco 49ers defense. Seattle had 311 yards of total offense ... by halftime.

The fact the the 49ers offense continues to struggle has not made things any better for San Francisco. The Blaine Gabbert led unit managed just 102 total yards of offense in the first half with only 25 coming from the running game, which has struggled so far this season. That's interesting considering that, in the past, Chip Kelly offenses have focused heavily on the running game and been very successful doing so.

The only reason the Seahawks had 311 total yards and not 317 was because the 49ers managed to sack Seahawks QB Russell Wilson at the end of the first half. RB Christine Michael is averaging nearly 7 yards per carry against the 49ers and has two touchdowns. Wilson has efficiently completed nearly 74-percent of his passes.

On offense, the 49ers are without TE Vance McDonald who left the game with a hip injury and CB Jimmie Ward who left the game with a right quad non-contact injury.

The Seahawks lead the 49ers 24-3 at halftime.

49ers vs. Seahawks offensive grades: Offense finally moving, but bad news continues for SF

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Seattle Seahawks 27-7, earning their first victory of the 2022 campaign, but it came with bad news, as second-year quarterback Trey Lance is expected to miss the rest of the 2022 campaign with an ankle fracture. Here are the offensive grades for the 49ers in Week 2: Quarterbacks: B The 49ers' offense was moving immediately with Trey Lance at the helm, with Kyle Shanahan drawing up a gameplan that opened up the run game early and often, which made sense given that the Seahawks gave up 5.1 yards per carry in Week 1 against the



Baldy: 49ers miss Mike McDaniel, offense flat without him

The San Francisco 49ers defense has been outstanding through three games this season. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the offense. The Niners currently own the No. 2 ranked defense in the league. The offense, on the other hand, sits at No. 24. While the 49ers have struggled to a 1-2 record, the Miami Dolphins, coached by Kyle Shanahan's former right-hand man, Mike McDaniel, are one of two undefeated teams and just knocked off the Buffalo Bills. Some are starting to wonder if the loss of McDaniel was too much for Shanahan and the 49ers offense to overcome. "I thought they would miss him, and I think they [do]," NFL analyst Brian Baldinger said on 95.7 The Game's The Morning Roast. "It just looks very beige, this offense, if



49ers Mailbag: Can Kyle Shanahan develop QBs? Was Mike McDaniel the secret sauce for the offense? What are the dimensions of an NFL end zone? (Asking for a friend)

The San Francisco 49ers have fallen to 1-2, with the Los Angeles Rams coming to Levi's Stadium on Monday night. It's hard to predict what will happen in that game. You would think the Rams will destroy the struggling 49ers. But last year, we thought the same thing. Instead, the 49ers blew out the Rams and turned their season around. Can history repeat itself? The 49ers' defense is as good as ever. The offense, on the other hand, has not been good. The offensive production has been reminiscent of the days when the 49ers hired defensive-minded head coaches like Mike Nolan and Mike Singletary. This defense is Super Bowl-caliber. Right now, this offense isn't even NFL-caliber. The 49ers can't blame anyone but themselves for their 1-2 start. They are much better than



Jimmy Garoppolo still looking to establish chemistry with 49ers offense but says 'It's getting better'

By Kirk Larrabee

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo says he's still looking to get on the same page with the rest of the 49ers offense after being away for most of the offseason and preseason but that things are getting better, slowly but surely. Garoppolo raised a few eyebrows after the 49ers' 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 3 when he said he was still looking to get in game shape and still trying to establish chemistry with his teammates on offense following an offseason that saw him sidelined due to shoulder surgery and a preseason where he was working and rehabbing separately from the team while awaiting word on a possible trade. He spoke more about that subject
