The San Francisco 49ers have transformed into one of the NFL's best offenses ever since Colin Kaepernick started.  The 49ers' first team and second team offenses are picking apart these defenses.

The 49ers' first team offense features

  • QB Colin Kaepernick
  • ​RB Frank Gore
  • WR Michael Crabtree
  • WR Anquan Boldin
  • ​TE Vernon Davis

San Francisco has starters on the first team offensive line, and you know Colin Kaepernick will make things happen regardless of who his wide outs are.  Crabtree is making one handed catches from 30-yards out.  Boldin looks like the #1 receiver he was last year.  Vernon Davis continues to display consistency as a beast in the red zone despite wanting a new contract.  Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd both received first team reps even though both are considered backup receivers.  Kaepernick fired to both wide receivers and both guys stepped up.  Carlos Hyde has received some first team reps as well due to the fact that Frank Gore is getting up there in age.

Anything less than 24 points a game will be considered a disappointing performance unless the 49ers win.  

The 49ers second team offense features

  • QB Blaine Gabbert
  • RB Carlos Hyde
  • WR Stevie Johnson
  • WR Brandon Lloyd
  • TE Vance McDonald

Gabbert went 14 for 18 throwing two receiving touchdowns with the second team.  Him and Vance McDonald have outstanding team chemistry.  I know the 49ers have the worst cornerback tandem in the NFL, and even followed that up when they passed on Bradley Roby for Jimmie Ward in the 2014 NFL Draft.  This secondary has second team corners starting and third team corners as backups.  How can you let Blaine Gabbert throw two passing touchdowns on the defense after his pedestrian career in Jacksonville?  Gabbert is going to be a solid backup in San Francisco.  That's all Gabbert is a backup.  Nothing more and nothing less.
