San Francisco 49ers Football - 2013 Preseason - Minnesota @ San Francisco - Season and Game Forecasting -

Forecast - The 49ers defense will be in the NFL top 3 statistically for lowest points allowed 2013/2014. This defense is looking very good in practice and preseason, really shutting down both running and passing with a good pass rush and tight coverage on the receivers. The performance and attitude of these defensive football athletes are on track for greatness.  Making the cut on this team is a real chore for players in 2013. Only a great athlete improving consistently can make this roster. Coaches are giving the players opportunities to perform and these players are responding well.

Offense - A guarded look at the 49ers offence in the first two preseason games has not revealed much other than which players are not good enough to make this team. Perhaps preseason week 3 or 4 will show if the offence is ready to begin the regular season schedule. Coaching is too conservative on offense, using too often old well known west coast plays. Perfecting potential in these good athletes requires evolving the pistol formation with the read offense. Offense advantages in the pistol include vision and execution for a QB, running backs benefit from timing and attack angles, and receivers gain a step on line backers and safeties. These advantages are real. The quarterback never turns back to the the line of scrimmage and he is closer than a wildcat or shotgun formation. Quick openers hit fast and defense has little time to read which QB option is occurring. The 49ers can average 40 points per game this year just by perfecting the read option pistol as their primary weapon. Using the pistol only as a change up offense, results in poor TD numbers - this is what cost the 49ers their Superbowl last year. They relapsed and called timing passes to the end zone which have lower success rates compared to many pistol, read option, red zone plays.

Minnesota at San Francisco - My preseason game three Forecast - The home crowd will enjoy seeing their players anchor slots on the roster. - Halftime SF 21 Minnesota 0 - Final 49ers 34 Vikings 14.

August 20, 2013 - My forecast for 2013/14 regular season. If the 49ers turn their offence loose in a fast pace, read option, pistol offense, with Kaepernick backed up by Daniels, the 49ers will shred the NFL scoring record and they will win the Superbowl.  If old offensive play calling persists, these coaches will keep their talent from reaching full potential and the year will be another bite ur nails season with many close games, very similar to last season.
