Eric Branch: “Have NFL defenses figured out the 49ers offense?”

Eric Branch, the terrific beat writer for the Chronicle and good friend, just published an article with valuable analysis of the 49ers offense.

I’d like to share it with you.

Among the troubling trends Eric points out, the Niners have scored just one touchdown in the last three weeks out of 26 drives that started in their own territory.

Also he includes this quote from Ravens D-lineman Cory Redding on the Niners shifts on offense: “It’s a lot of window dressing – they move this, that and the other. But once they get in the final formation, we know where the ball’s going to go.”
