MINNEAPOLIS -- The 49ers' decision to come out passing against the Vikings made sense in an abstract way.

The Vikings were sure to load up against Frank Gore early. But I might have reconsidered the idea on the first drive given the incredible noise here in the Metrodome. Worse, the 49ers left Joe Staley alone to block Jared Allen, leading to a sack and forced fumble on their first play.

Bad, bad start for the 49ers on offense. They need to settle down and give their tackles a chance.
