This is mind boggling:

Through the first three weeks of the season, the 49ers have scored 59 points in the first half, more than anybody else in football. In the second half, the Niners have scored — and this is not a typo — three points. As you might expect, that’s far worse than anybody else in the NFL.

Bottom line: the O line needs to get better to support the run game and make the QB less rushed. 

Also, there's a serious weakness in the secondary -- 49ers lack big cornerbacks so they're going to have to adapt.
