"We had a few tips off film we were able to differentiate between run and pass early," Dahl said Wednesday between the 49ers' minicamp practices. "So that kind of gave us an added benefit on defense."

"Different personnel and different alignment stuff really were the big keys as far as giveaways," Dahl said. "It's been addressed and corrected. They knew most of it before I even got here. We just reconfirmed it. It's ongoing self-study and self-scouting that got it cleared up, too."
