    What would you say the 49ers weak spot is?

    I know the 49ers have a LOT of strong points, but what would you say their weak spot is?

    As of right now I would say our pass rush has been, but I think we're playing a more balanced defense and our pass coverage has been pretty good so hard to tell.

    Kick coverage in a landslide. They've given up several big returns (kick and punt) including 2 TDs and just as a general rule, they're not getting down there as quickly as they did last year. Granted both "should" have been called back for penalties but in at least the GB game, I don't think the guy blocked in the back would have made the play anyway.

    Coverage unit hasn't looked up to par thus far. Other than that, I think our weakest unit is the secondary...and they are an above average to good unit, which says a lot about how good this team is. I don't agree with those who criticize our pass rush. We aren't getting a ton of sacks, but we rarely rush more than 4 and still get a lot of QBs scrambling around and running outside of the pocket.

    There were 2 blocks in the back on the GB play...and the one in Dixon's back created the entire thing.

    So would you guys think the corners are the weak spot? Say, Carlos Rogers?

    Special teams coverage. Depth at safety and linebacker.

    I completely agree with that. Depth is scary thin on defense

    I think we could do better than Carlos Rogers and Dashon Goldson for the money that they are paid. Both are good players, but both are overpaid.

    See thats where I think differently than you do. Goldson is key for this defense. I don't understand how people can say he's not that important. He's one of the better safeties in the league.

    I actually think CB is a strong spot. I think Rogers (while I can't agree or disagree if he's slowed down or not), Culliver and Brown are 3 quality ball players and Cox would be higher than 4th CB on at least 20 teams. The starting safeties are good. Kind of strange though: Whitner has disappointed me and I've been impressed with Goldson. The depth is poor though. Might be better next season with the two young guys having another season under thier belt, but I would MUCH prefer the Niners kept Jones over McBath. McBath doesn't seem to add anything defensively and has not been an impact player on ST as the unit has struggled. Jones was always one of the first guys down there.

    He's below average in coverage and he doesn't wrap up when he tackles. He causes turnovers and he is a good player, but I don't agree that he is one of the best safeties in the league. He's a good safety, not a great safety. He is seeking great safety money. Personally, I think Donte Whitner (grossly underrated by our fan base and others) is the best safety on the team and makes far less than Goldson. Whitner is a tackling machine and solid in coverage too. He doesn't cause as many turnovers, but he is much more important than others suggest.

    off topic:
    we are well rounded so the only team that scares me is another well rounded team...........someone with enough defense to slow us down and enough offense to score regardless....obviously the Texans fit the bill,, maybe the Steelers but not really
