Kultenbach: The 49ers’ new offense led by Trey Lance is brewing for a decade or a century

Santa Clara-There was an unmistakable buzz at the beginning of the 49ers training camp, and one sentence seemed to sum it all up:

“Eleven o’clock and eleven o’clock.”

The players of the nine-man team couldn’t help but speak out. They feel very dizzy about this concept.

On Sunday, we saw what they were talking about.

Since Kyle Shanahan came to Santa Clara, the 49ers have effectively defeated a man in the game-11 shots and 10 points. The quarterback did nothing, just handed it over.

But in the rookie quarterback Trey Lance game, the defense must respect the quarterback’s running ability. Now, Niners will play 11 to 11.

In the preseason finals, Niners’ first two offensive series against the Raiders at Levi’s Stadium — a 34-10 victory — demonstrated an 11-to-11 efficiency.

San Francisco scored twice on these drives while performing a quarterback rotation between Jimmy Gallopolo and Lance, and the rookie is almost entirely a reading option.

The 49ers offense is not the only offense in the league where you can read the options-the Baltimore Ravens, led by the 2019 NFL MVP Lamar Jackson, tore the league for several years with a selective offense.

This is not the first time we have seen 49ers run it-nor is Shanahan’s first rodeo with a read option as a play caller.

But this is actually a new offense for San Francisco-which will increasingly be implemented in stages in the coming weeks.

Nearly ten years-if not a century-are in the making.
