The San Francisco 49ers first-team defense allowed six points in two series of action Friday night against the Minnesota Vikings.
The 49ers won, 17-6, but defensive coordinator Vic Fangio wasn’t pleased with seeing his starters allow 59- and 68-yard scoring drives that were the only points allowed in the team’s preseason opener.
“We didn’t play as well we’re capable of playing in those first two series,” Fangio said bluntly on Monday.
Christian Ponder’s 52-yard passing play on the opening drive was a result of a “busted coverage” according to Fangio.

Carlos Rogers was a full participant at Tuesday’s opening three-day minicamp session for the San Francisco 49ers.
Rogers’ presence has been felt throughout San Francisco’s offseason program; however, the veteran cornerback who signed a new four-year contract with the 49ers did not recently participate in Organized Team Activities.
Rogers told The San Francisco Chronicle a right calf strain, suffered last month, has kept him out of action.
Tuesday, however, Rogers was back on the field wearing a gold 49ers helmet along with the rest of his teammates.
