49ers must avoid offensive lulls

For as good as San Francisco has been this season, there are still a couple of offensive inadequacies that plague head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad.

The 49ers are great at scoring on opening drives, and they're currently fourth best in points scored in the first quarter (6.5). But they also have a weird tendency of stalling out for the next few possessions, often after halftime.

Perhaps Shanahan could switch up the pace to a no-huddle/hurry-up style of offense in order to shake things up and get the offense out of the temporary funks that sometimes plague it. It can be a great way to get into a rhythm and generate offense when they hit these periodic lulls.
