 the season against the Vikings in Minnesota was always going to be a tough task for the 49ers. The Vikings were one game away from the Super Bowl last year and upgraded their quarterback with the signing of Kirk Cousins in the offseason. But that still doesn’t help with the 49ers’ frustration in their loss on Sunday. They were in the game and had opportunities to steal a victory. Mistakes and red zone failures put winning out of reach. The red zone issues were glaring on Sunday. They were in the red zone 4 times against the Viking’s elite defense. In those opportunities , they scored one touchdown and fumbled one at the goal line. It’s always going to be hard to score touchdowns against great defenses like Minnesota’s, so when the opportunity arises, the team has to punch them in. The Alfred Morris fumble at the 1 yard line hurt a lot because it would have tied the game at 10 a piece. Instead, they never got closer than 11 points. On a series in the 3rd quarter, Jimmy Garoppolo hit a jumping Pierre Garcon, but Pierre could not secure the touchdown. That led the team to a field goal. On their last red zone chance Youth Jaquiski Tartt Jersey , Jimmy sailed a pass over George Kittle from 4 yards. That led to their last points of the game.In their home opener this coming Sunday, the 49ers face the Detroit Lions, who had an awful game on Monday night. The Lions had poor showings on both sides of the ball. Matt Stafford had 4 interceptions against the Jets and the Jets offense hung 41 points on the terrible Lions defense. That’s a much easier task than facing the Vikings defense so the 49ers should have an opportunity to fix their red zone offense on Sunday. 49ers linksNot an ideal way to start the season | Down 2 guards potentially (Alper)That red zone offense needs to get fixed immediately | Fixing the offense (Inman)Other than the dropped pass, he had a good game | Good start to Kittle’s season (Williams)Only allowed one reception | Richard Sherman’s 1st game went well (Wagoner)Have to fix the red zone offense (Maiocco)Dante’s 1st TD (Martin)Defense played well.

Sure I hear all the time, “oh he had a good Senior Bowl White Fred Warner Jersey ,” But I’ve never sat down to watch it. The 49ers are not getting another chance like this again; coaching the Senior Bowl and having the No. 2 selection in the draft. So they need to make this count. On a lighter note, I’m curious what Kyle Shanahan’s “offense” if you call it that will look like at the Senior Bowl. Curious because of the rules running offense and curious because his offense is one of the hardest to learn at full strength. It’s obviously going to be a loose shadow of what he runs, but I’m just curious what he goes with. Things get started today and we’ll have content throughout the day of how practices are going and what’s going on with any possible press conferences so stay tuned. 2019 Senior Bowl: 49ers will see six running backs, but it’s not a need (Chan)49ers not part of NFL international games in 2019 (Madson)Where will Antonio Brown play in 2019? 49ers, Broncos among possibilities (Sporting News)With disgruntled, recovering Earl Thomas Youth Solomon Thomas Jersey , 49ers may want to explore options (Branch)2019 Senior Bowl: 49ers, Raiders preferences met with teams’ rosters (Maiocco)Case-by-case look at 49ers’ free-agent starters and likelihood of returning (Madson)2019 Senior Bowl: Can 49ers find tight end to pair with George Kittle?
