Our offense has had a few good plays and a few missed opportunities but they have not looked very consistent. During Jimmy G’s starts last year [url=http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-hats]San Francisco 49ers Hats[/url] , it felt like the 49ers had a good chance to do something big on almost every offensive play. There was energy and expectations I had not seen since the ‘90s. Unfortunately, I haven’t felt that same energy the first two weeks of this season.Some people are blaming Jimmy Garoppolo. He has hung onto the ball too long, he is not seeing the open receiver, he is staring down his intended receiver and he is not making good decisions is just some of the accusations I have read on Niners Nation.Some people are blaming the receivers not getting open and some are blaming the offensive line while others look to the Jerrick McKinnon injury for being the blame for our sluggish start.My question is, why are people so unwilling to blame the head coach and offensive coordinator? Most of them get extremely defensive the moment you mention anything about him being held accountable. Holding the coach accountable has become synonymous with saying he is a bad coach and I am not sure why? If you really think Kyle Shanahan is a great coach, why are you being so insecure that no one can question anything he says or does?It is up to Kyle Shanahan to fix what is wrong with the team. If that means bringing in new players, coaching up the ones he has or changing the game plan to get the most out of his players, that is what he is there for. Good or bad [url=http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-hoodie]San Francisco 49ers Hoodie[/url] , he is ultimately responsible for the team come game day.Now you might think I am getting down on Kyle Shanahan and you are partially right but it is because of my faith and respect in his coaching abilities that I hold him to such a high standard. I think he has the ability to make the changes we need to be more consistent. Players are not executing at the level he has demanded and opposing coaches have spent time during the off season to plan defensive coverages to slow the 49ers offense down. I have little doubt Shanahan will respond. He is way too smart when it comes to coaching tactics not to. I anxiously am looking forward to see what he comes up with against the Kansas City Chiefs.I sincerely believe Shanahan is the answer to making the whole offense look better. I believe he is also intelligent enough to make some subtle changes that can make Jimmy G’s life easier on game day. It took Matt Ryan two training camps to get Shanahan’s offense down and he was a seasoned veteran quarterback. Perhaps Shanahan might have fed Jimmy Garoppolo too much detail too early? I don’t know? I do know Kyle has a great supporting cast when it comes to breaking down game film and looking for the edge needed to be competitive. Don’t be surprised if the offense looks a little more consistent this week.On another note, Baker Mayfield looked pretty good tonight. He looked like he deserved to be the first pick in the draft.Now onto the hot links:How the 49ers can beat the ChiefsGrant CohnCoaches, teammates backing Ahkello Witherspoon after poor performanceBrad AlmquistJoe Staley picks his one 49ers career roster undoDavid BonillaWhy not trade for Josh Gordon? 49ers’ John Lynch explainsEric BranchFoster says return from suspension is like celebrating holidayMatt MaioccoFoster and Sherman bond as 49ers locker neighborsChris BidermanJohn Lynch: Why 49ers didn’t aggressively pursue Josh GordonDavid Bonilla49ers’ Richard Sherman misses practices with heel injuryEric BranchThree safeties getting extra reps with Jaquiski Tartt injuredKyle MadsonWhat are the Chiefs Saying about the 49ers?Kelana MartinErrors by young 49ers WRs highlight challenges of Shanahan’s system Eric BranchRichard Sherman after watching Steelers defense vs. Chiefs: ‘I think they made it way too complicated’David BonillaRichard Sherman believes Ahkello Witherspoon will ‘respond well’ after rough outingDavid Bonilla49ers RB Matt Breida named the FedEx Ground Player of the WeekDavid BonillaChiefs receivers love their new offenseMike FlorioSnap count reflects Ahkello Witherspoon benching, running back committee, Solomon Thomas questions The San Francisco 49ers secured their first victory in Week 2, but it was an ugly one that saw Ahkello Witherspoon benched late in the game. We’ve got a full rundown of the snap count below, or you can check out the gamebook PDF.Witherspoon had his worst game as a pro, giving up two scores and getting overwhelmed all day long. Jimmie Ward eventually replaced him [url=http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-customized]Youth Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys[/url] , and did not do much in his own right. Kyle Shanahan is meeting with the media on Monday, so we’ll see if this week in practice brings an open competition for the cornerback spot opposite Richard Sherman.Matt Breida was the star of the game on offense, thanks to a 66-yard touchdown run, but he still ended up with less work than Alfred Morris. Breida played 26 snaps, and had 11 carries and four targets (three receptions). Morris played 31 snaps, and had 14 carries and two targets (two receptions).The defensive line rotation continues to leave Solomon Thomas on the shorter end of the stick. DeForest Buckner led the unit in snaps (64), followed by Cassius Marsh and Arik Armstead (54 apiece), Ronald Blair (40) [url=http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com]www.49ersauthorizedshops.com[/url] , and then Thomas (37). Thomas got some passing down work, but he is regularly replaced on the edge by Marsh on passing downs, with Arik Armstead moving inside from strong end to work next to DeForest Buckner at defensive tackle. Thomas remains a strong contributor in the team’s run defense, but he is not emerging as a consistent pass rushing threat.Rookie Dante Pettis got his first start in place of an injured Marquise Goodwin, and led the wide receiver corps in snaps with 56 (88 percent of total offensive snaps). Richie James made his pro debut, and was on the field for seven snaps. Kendrick Bourne was only on the field for ten offensive snaps, but made the most of limited work with his four-yard touchdown reception.Week 2 snap count vs. LionsPlayerOffenseDefenseSTPlayerOffenseDefenseST
