    The San Francisco 49ers seem to have a backup-quarterback problem.None of Blaine Gabbert, Josh Johnson or McLeod Bethel-Thompson have lit the world on fire during the first two preseason games.  In fact, their stat lines have been quite depressing:Gabbert’s been the worst statistically, but he’s also suffered the most from receiver drops.  Some of the drops came from poorly thrown passes, but an NFL receiver needs to catch a ball that hits him in the hands.  Remove the drops from each quarterback’s stats, and Gabbert’s completion percentage rises to 57.9 percent—still in last p…

    Lost in the San Francisco 49ers' two blowout losses in the preseason have been a few standout performers. And most have come from the defensive side of the ball. That's because San Francisco's offense has scored just three points and turned the ball over seven times. With the struggles of the running game, you won't be seeing an offensive linemen on this list. And it goes without saying that the quarterback play, especially from the backups, doesn't warrant any inclusions. Among the few who just missed the cut are Michael Wilhoite (14 tackles, one sack, one tackle for loss), Chris Cook…

    Over the last three years, the San Francisco 49ers have had one of the most dominant defenses in the NFL. In 2011, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio guided the fourth-best defense in the NFL. In 2012, he coached the No. 3-ranked unit. And in 2013, he instructed the fifth-best defense. Yet the past successes of San Francisco’s defense doesn’t necessarily mean it will find guaranteed prosperity in 2014. Why? Because right now, the 49ers are doing little to quell concerns about their retooled, injured defense. Obviously, we are still very early into the preseason process, but some of the…
