Campfire Chat: Plant a Flag, NFL Team

Footballguys staff members take a stand on an NFL team

It's time to take a stand. Make a call on an NFL team. What franchise will surprise - either good or bad? Why?

Chad Parsons: I think the 49ers will be better than expected, specifically on offense. San Francisco was a bottom-5 passing offense by Expected Points metric, including horrific marks in net yards per pass attempt, overall first downs, and sack rate. The run game was not the problem as they finishing middle of the pack in most categories. Kyle Shanahan, Brian Hoyer, and Pierre Garcon are key upgrades. Jeremy Kerley is a functional secondary receiver. Marquise Goodwin and Aldrick Robinson offer the speed element present in Atlanta's version of the Shanahan offense last season in secondary roles for explosive plays. The 49ers are written off as an offense overall and improving their offense - especially their passing game - with a functional veteran quarterback and No.1 receiver upgrade, raises the tide into the ranks of respectable in 2017.
