Gerhart looks and runs like a fullback.

Accuracy is there. Still looking to run when he has time. Needs more poise.

Ponder just doesn't look comfortable to me. He drops back, feet are shifting, he's not setting up and throwing smoothly. When he does release he's just short-arming the throw. His completions and attempts are all short.

49ers have a good defense and their starters are out so I get it, but I don't see a guy who has a command of the field right now.

On the bright side, the offensive line and run blocking are better already. They're doing a nice job against a good front 7. That's encouraging.
