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.

NFL Network analyst Michael Robinson is a fan of the San Francisco 49ers selecting quarterback Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall pick. Many people are, considering there were rampant rumors that the team might seemingly reach by selecting Mac Jones. Lance has the potential to be one of the toughest quarterbacks to defend in the coming years, and Robinson feels the young passer will eventually elevate head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense to another level. "Look, first of all, the skill set of Trey Lance takes this Kyle Shanahan offense over the top to a championship level, to heights I don't think Kyle Shanahan has seen," Robinson said on NFL Network (h/t

Trey Lance knows about Kyle Shanahan's reputation. The 41-year-old head coach of the San Francisco 49ers is also the team's play-caller. He is seen as a creative play designer and one of the brightest minds in football. It's the perfect landing spot for Lance, who has started getting to work on learning his new offense. The former North Dakota State star had hoped to end up with the 49ers but didn't know his NFL fate until moments before Commissioner Roger Goodell officially announced the No. 3 overall pick. While speaking to him on the phone on draft night, Shanahan asked his new quarterback if he had any idea that he was Bay Area-bound. "Man, I didn't know, Coach," Lance responded. "You wouldn't tell me

San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York recently told NBC Sports Bay Area that there is no rush to get rookie quarterback Trey Lance, the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, onto the football field. That's why the team held onto Jimmy Garoppolo, who has two years remaining on his contract. York didn't guarantee that Garoppolo would play out that contract in its entirety with the 49ers. But if that's what it took to eventually get the most out of Lance, allowing the young quarterback the luxury of sitting and learning, then ownership is willing to pay Garoppolo for that privilege.

Warner was a guest on The Rich Eisen Show Friday, days before he and the NFL Network will head to Cleveland, Ohio for this year's NFL Draft. Warner took several minutes to discuss what could happen at pick three, saying he believes the 49ers' decision could come down to what direction they'd like to take from current starter Jimmy Garoppolo. In particular, Warner thinks Alabama
