NFL: 49ers show they’re serious NFC contender in Week 1

< Previous Page

A balanced offense is what the 49ers are hoping for every Sunday, with Gore leading the way in the running game and a more wide-open passing game with Moss and Michael Crabtree, Davis and Walker.

It sure worked Sunday. Upgrading the receiving corps was a top priority this offseason after the unit managed only one catch for 3 yards in a 20-17 overtime loss in the NFC title game to the eventual Super Bowl champion Giants.

"We came into it with a will-to-win attitude," Davis said. "As you can see, we ran the ball, we passed when we needed to and we made the plays — made it happen."

Harbaugh said he’s a "big believer" in the strides a team can make between the first and second games, and that’s a focus moving ahead with this week’s preparations for Detroit.

"You always feel like you’re either getting better or you’re getting worse," he said. "You never stay the same. We’ve talked about that."
