For all the wrinkles and formations in Kyle Shanahan's new offense as San Francisco 49ers coach, there is one aspect that might be most important. As one of the league's biggest proponents of play-action passes out of the same formations as his base run plays, Shanahan's philosophy is to make the defense commit to stopping the run or pass and then beat the defenders by running the opposite. By making run plays look like passes and passes like runs, Shanahan wants to make the defense react a step late crashing against the run even on a handoff or dropping back in coverage on a pass.
