After a successful 2019, here are three questions the 49ers offense will need to answer in 2020.

The San Francisco 49ers had one of their greatest seasons in a long time… a very long time. With quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo fully healthy the “Faithful” got a chance to see what the former New England quarterback could do.

Along with Garoppolo, the rise of tight end George Kittle kept growing. From developing a strong relationship with his quarterback on and off the field to becoming one of the best pass blockers in the NFL, Kittle cemented his legacy as a fan favorite.

The 49ers also saw rookie wideout Deebo Samuel become one of the best receivers in the league and have lots of hope for him as his career progresses.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan thrived with having a full offense for the first time since he’s taken over. He leads the offense to their best statistical season since 2001.

Last season the 49ers finished second in points and fourth in yards. In 2001 lead by quarterback Jeff Garcia, they finished third and fourth respectively in those categories.

However, the 2019 season is in the rearview mirror. It’s now time to look forward to 2020 and what Shanahan and the offense can bring.

We know this year has been weird with COVID-19, so one of the main questions for the 49ers will be how they deal with the virus. We’ve seen linebacker Fred Warner placed on the COVID-19 list due to either testing positive or being in close contact with someone who tested positive.

Let’s look at three other questions the 49ers offense will have to answer, starting at quarterback.
