Harbaugh not pleased with execution

By Bill Williamson

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- What was the San Francisco 49ers' locker room like after a 34-0 loss to the Denver Broncos to usher in Levi’s Stadium? Not concerned.

“Nothing to worry about,” tight end Vernon Davis said, cautioning the preseason is simply for working out kinks and giving young players a chance to play.”

Added running back Frank Gore: “It’s just camp.”

Gore said he is not worried because the 49ers look fine in practice.

While the players are taking a positive approach, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was more pointed. He said his team overall is lacking precision at this point.

“That’s football. It punishes mistakes,” Harbaugh said. “It rewards execution and precision.”

Harbaugh said he wants to see significant improvement next Sunday when the 49ers play host to San Diego. That’s the game the starters usually play into the second half.

"It’s off right now,” Harbaugh said. “Definitely off, in little correctable ways. That’s what I see. Feel like we can get it corrected."
