Cardinals v. 49ers – 5 Questions With Golden Gate Sports

2 of 6

Sep 14, 2014; Santa Clara, CA, USA; San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore (21) rushes for a touchdown against the Chicago Bears during the second quarter at Levi

1. After last week’s four turnovers, what are the adjustments that will be made on offense?

Marc Grandi: Greg Roman will move back to a run-heavy play-call. While passing through the air worked well against Dallas in the first half, it didn’t work against Chicago. Despite his age, Frank Gore will continue to run strong and Carlos Hyde’s quickness and strength will allow the 49ers to keep Gore fresh for the entire game and season.

Sean Bialaszek: More of a run game. With Kaepernick turning the ball over four times, the ball needs to be kept on the ground, whether that means handing off to Gore or Kaepernick tucking and running more.

Brendan KennealyAfter last week’s poor offensive performance with four turnovers, one major adjustment would be to run the offense through Frank Gore. Obviously, Colin Kaepernick can’t carry this offense yet even with the number of weapons he has out there. If they began to do more read options and allowed Kaepernick to run the ball for yardage, rather than throwing across his body to a guy double-covered would be ideal as well.
