Philadelphia Eagles versus 49ers: Expert shares Niners biggest weakness
The Philadelphia Eagles will have weaknesses that they can exploit.
Inside The Iggles: What would you consider to be the Niners’ biggest and most exploitable weaknesses on both offense and defense. Where should Philly attack?
Panacy: Garoppolo might be the best option under center for San Francisco right now. But he’s also Shanahan’s biggest weakness and X-factor, prone to making mistakes when they matter the most. If he protects the ball, and the 49ers can get the ground game going, things should be OK. There’s enough depth at wide receiver and tight end to keep the chains moving, especially behind a reinforced offensive line. But all it takes is for one Jimmy G turnover to make things go south quickly.
As for the defense, the Niners’ secondary has been banged up already at cornerback, and there’s no other bigger concern for that side of the ball even with Lenoir having played so well early. If that’s the spot Philly wants to expose, it would be a wise choice.
