defenses Rookie Nick Mullens Jersey , expected to do well this year. Two injury-ridden squads with 1-4 records and lots of frustrated fans.San Francisco and Atlanta.Inspired by a comment from user Bay Area Blessed, let's look into the similarities and differences between the 49ers and Falcons. (Spoiler: I’d rather be SF than Atlanta.) Here’s what BAB said about the Falcons comparison:There’s no doubt that both teams are big disappointments, in large part due to injuries. For Atlanta, offensive guard Andy Levitre is out for the year, along with safeties Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen. Middle linebacker Deion Jones is on IR with a vague foot injury, marked for return but not before November 18th at the earliest — and his absence has caused problems equivalent to Reuben Foster’s, at the start of this season for San Francisco. His replacement, Duke Riley, is rated 77th of 82 qualifying LB’s by PFF.Here are some similarities and differences between the competing disappointments of these two teams.Similarities1. Kyle ShanahanFundamentally, these are both offenses that Kyle Shanahan built, even if work is only half-done in San Francisco, and Atlanta’s offense is diverging under the guidance of Steve Sarkisian, who is rebuilding his career after getting fired from the USC head coach job for alcoholism. Many of the same skill players are there, such as QB Matt Ryan, WR1 Julio Jones, WR2 Mohammed Sanu, RBs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, TE Austin Hooper (plus Logan Paulsen from Shanny’s first Niners team!). But notably Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , the Falcons let the NFL’s second-best pass receiving fullback — Patrick DiMarco — walk after Shanahan left. Their current FB Ricky Ortiz has (checks notes) zero receptions on zero targets, for a grand total of zero yards. Meanwhile, FB Kyle Juszczyk has 197 yards receiving so far this year, more than Larry Fitzgerald, Randall Cobb, Taylor Gabriel, Christian McCaffrey, Jordan Reed — or Pierre Gar莽on.2. InjuriesI’ve already mentioned Atlanta’s injuries, and anyone reading this is far too familiar with the Niners’ problems. The real worry is combining No. 1 and No. 2 — is there something about Shanahan’s offense that increases the odds of injuries? Nothing leaps out at me, but it’s a question worth asking.Differences1. The offensive lineAtlanta’s line was great under Shanahan, cemented by the high-priced free agent acquisition of center Alex Mack, whose mobility really made Shanahan’s scheme sing. That line has been neglected since he left and has really fallen apart, giving up six sacks and 13 QB hits in the Pittsburgh game alone. Mack is getting old, Levitre’s out for the season, and only Jake Matthews has been playing well (out of five starters). Do you know who’s starting at right guard for Atlanta this year? Brandon Fusco, the barely passable Niner guard from last year. ‘Nuff said.Meanwhile, PFF ranks the Niners’ offensivefront line 5th in the NFL. Drafting tackle Mike McGlinchey and signing free agent center Weston Richburg, Jr. has cemented a great line Authentic George Kittle Jersey , paving the way for Shanahan’s run heavy + play action pass scheme to be devastating when everyone heals up next year.2. Skill playersThe Falcons are loaded, with Matty Ice, Julio Jones, Mohammed Sanu, Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman, and rookie WR Calvin Ridley (the offensive player of the month for September). San Francisco has 鈥?a great fullback? Second-year men George Kittle and Matt Breida are on track to eventually become Pro Bowlers, and Marquise Goodwin flashed last year (but not this season, so far). Otherwise, the Niners have a bunch of average to above average skill players, but no real stars.Atlanta has a much stronger offense, right now. But given their roster and healthy QB, they damn well better.3. Head coachAtlanta has a defensive minded head coach, and a terrible defense sometimes bailed out by a strong offense. San Francisco has a generally good defense with huge lapses in its second year, and an overachieving offense masterminded by a great coach, but sputtering due to spotty talent. The Niners are a couple of years away, but I like the trend.OverallAtlanta is a talented, directionless team slowly drifting into mediocrity. San Francisco is a young http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/weston-richburg-jersey , rebuilding team with great leadership at GM and offensive coordinator/coach, a team on the way up. They’re passing each other going in different directions, but I see this as a lot more like “A Star is Born” than any direct parallel.This stat shows what 5 turnovers can do to an offense The San Francisco 49ers lost 28-18 to the Arizona Cardinals, and there are a host of reasons why. We can point to numerous drops, poor execution on offense, and tackling woes (although there appeared to be fewer missed tackles than normal). But if we want to find one number to pin this loss on, it would have to be 5.The 49ers offense coughed up the ball five times in Week 5. C.J. Beathard threw two interceptions and was twice stripped of the ball on pass plays. Additionally, Raheem Mostert was stripped of the ball in the second quarter. The 49ers defense was unable to force turnovers of their own, and a -5 in the turnover department resulted in this rather obscene statistical performance:The 49ers had 33 first downs to the Cardinals 10 first downs. The 49ers out-gained the Cardinals 447 yards to 220 yards. Finally, the 49ers controlled time of possession 40:12 to 19:48. Drops and generally poor execution cost the 49ers, but when you dominate on the stat sheet like this, turnovers are the easiest way to entirely negate that.Beathard gets the bulk of the blame in this regard. He did not get enough help from his pass catchers much of the day, but his fumbles were primarily on him. The 49ers receivers are struggling to get separation, but even still, Beathard has to have better pocket presence. This is just one of many problems that need to be cleaned up. The 49ers can clean up their tackling and pass catching, but a -5 in turnover differential can rarely be overcome.
