The San Francisco 49ers are flying under the NFL‘s radar despite having a 6-2 overall record and being winners of five straight games. One of the bigger reasons why the 49ers are so low-profile is because they really don’t have the electric offense that NFL fans gravitate to. For example, San Francisco is dead last in the NFL in passing, which calls for a rather boring offensive game plan.
However, the usually-dull 49ers offense is about to receive a major kick in the rear. Mario Manningham was activated off of the Physically Unable to Perform list on Monday and the veteran wide receiver plans on taking the field in Week 10. Manningham’s last NFL snap came in December of 2012 in a game against the Seattle Seahawks — Manningham suffered a torn ACL and missed out on the 49ers’ playoff run last season.
Oddly enough, Manningham is now in prime position to give the 49ers a massive edge in the 2013 playoff push. Meanwhile, the Seahawks are also gearing up for the postseason as offensive weapon Percy Harvin is due back in the coming weeks as well. Let the games between these two franchises begin!
