Offense? Not great but a really good unit. 49ers probably have the best running game in the NFL, an extremely physical offensive line and a QB that's extremely efficient. Weakness may be WR core as they are inconsistent and prone to mistakes
Special Teams? One of the best Kicker/Punter combos, great returner in Ginn and the coverage teams are great. Harbough focuses on ST's more so than the average HC
The only team I see us having a problem with is New England.
Bears Defense has something to say about who is playing like the best defense right now. And really?
And I wouldn't say they have the best running game. Its up there but there are a few teams who can run effectively and as efficiently as the 9ers.
