Offensive coordinator Greg Roman kept everyone on the 49ers' offense involved in the team's 20-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.And, of course, he kept nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga active, too. Sopoaga played 13 snaps of offense, in addition to his usual duties on defense.The 49ers showed an incredible volume of personnel groups on Sunday. The team ran 64 offensive plays on Sunday, and they used 33 different combination of players at the five eligible positions. In the first half alone, the 49ers used 26 different combinations for the 36 plays they ran.For the first time this season, the 49ers used formations that did not involve a running back. Through six games, the 49ers always had a running back -- either Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter or Anthony Dixon -- on the field.This huge volume of personnel groups will undoubtedly keep opposing defensive coordinators busy throughout the season to prepare for the wide array of packages the 49ers can throw onto the field every Sunday.Here is a look at all the different personnel groups the 49ers employed Sunday, and the resulting plays: 11 PERSONNEL (one back, one tight end)
