While trying to decide on a topic to write about this week I decided to come up with this, experiment, shall we call it.
I want to know what YOU 49ers fans want to have discussed in this section, so I'm opening this forum up for you to ask the questions and I will choose 20 of them and give you my most honest opinion on them - Straight out of the Rabbit's Hole.

I'm open to discuss anything 49ers related this season from the team's 7-1 record, to individual players, to what's ahead this season. I might even be willing to discuss the 2012 draft if the right question comes around.
Leave your questions in the comments section or send them via twitter to DiegoDelBarco
and make sure to use the hash tag #WZ20questions.
I will be making a new post with answers to 20 questions on Thursday night. I'm looking forward to your questions.

Comment: Someone has probably already asked this question, but how good are the Niners really? Are they really as good as their record indicates? Are they good enought to hang with GB? Can they really be contenders without an elite QB? Does the lack of a legitimate passing game concern you like it does me?

Comment: Do you find it exciting or a little dissappointing that the most remarkable pass plays this season involve Alex Smith getting the crap drilled out of him? And still by superhuman effort manage to collapse to the ground with a firm grasp on his three balls. Sensational or Deflating!?

Comment: How do we achieve peace in the middle east? And what do think about paying your taxes with a postcard? I wish I could get a lobotomy with a postage stamp, doesn't that sound great?

Comment: Due to an amazingly weak schedule, the 49ers are highly likely to go, at minimum,12-4 this year. But they could just as easily be a 7-9, 8-8, or 9-6 equivalent team, and you would not be able to tell the difference (in W-L column) with this schedule.
There are three challenging games left in the schedule, Giants, Ravens, & Steelers. Do you agree the 49ers need to win at least two of three of these to be considered a NFC championship caliber team in the postseason?

Comment: Is this 49ers defense good enough to carry the team through the playoffs? (a la 2000 Ravens or 2002 Buccaneers)
Date: November 9, 2011 at 9:07 PM
Comment: If the 49er coaches are as good as everyone says, why can't they get Smith to lower his passes?? Seems like there should be some drill or some gameday simulation that could help him be more accurate?

Comment: Do you think Alex Smith can ever approach the skill of Joe Montana?

Comment: Do you think alex will be back next year? Has coach Harbaugh shown he can win regardless of the qb back there? This offseason regardless of the season outcome will he go out and add more competitive qb depth both from the draft and free agency? or will he pull a singletary and just create a facade of competition to the media and fans
Date: November 9, 2011 at 11:28 AM
Comment: Do we have Roman and Fangio locked up to long term contracts? They seem just as important to our success as Harbaugh is. How do teams like Pittsburgh keep Dick LeBeau as their coordinator without loosing him to a head coaching gig?

Comment: To Mike. Dobbs did get in the game last week for one play. He was blown off the line and Helu gained 11 yards. Dobbs was then pulled and didn't get in for another play.
My question. Once the Niners cinch the title we can expect CK to get his first start, maybe a couple. What happens if he pulls a Steve Young and averages 40 pts. a game? IMO, Harbaugh will be more likely to pull Alex if that occurs. Your opinion?

Comment: Are the Niners super bowl contenders this year?
Date: November 9, 2011 at 10:14 AM
Comment: If we lock up the payoffs (and/or the #2 seed) should we get Colin Kaepernick substantial playing time? Or do we keep Alex in all the time to continue to develop the offense around him to get ready for the postseason. For that matter should we try and get him in a few plays a game right now to mix things up and to get some tape on him for evaluation purposes?

Comment: In your opinion how does our defense match up against Aaron Rodgers and the vaunted Packers aerial assault and do you think our defense can perform at this level at Lambeau in January?

Comment: Do you think the 49ers wil be able to resign Dashon Goldson? I believe he is one of the most talented Free Safties in the league. I mean really what more would they want out of a safety he is fast, athletic, hits hard, and can cover. Plus the talent level of the guys that are behind him is a significant drop off.
Date: November 9, 2011 at 8:04 AM
Comment: I was wondering about the rotations on the D-line, are we deep enough to rotate behind our starters??? Im always looking to see the snap count on the backups and Dobbs never gets in if at all!!. Im getting the feeling Vic doesnt have much trust in him. hope Im wrong but thats what I see.

Comment: Do you think it would be more beneficial for the team to clinch the NFC West before thanksgiving or for them to clinch it afterwards? I personally think it might be better to clinch it afterwards so they don't become content just before their Thanksgiving game. What do you think??
Date: November 9, 2011 at 5:22 AM
Comment: What are the chances we see a Niner game in the near future where they open the offense up? Maybe to quiet the critics in regards to the passing game?
Date: November 9, 2011 at 5:18 AM
Comment: If Alex Smith continues to play as well as he has, do you see the Niners signing him for next year?
Date: November 9, 2011 at 4:28 AM
Comment: Has Navarro Bowman made any statements about his Penn State coaches?

Comment: Let's say you are the GM... If alex keeps this consistent level of play for the rest of the season, would you resign him in the offseason? and if you do, for how long?
Date: November 9, 2011 at 1:04 AM
Comment: With the exception of players such as Gore or Bowman, who very often are measured by their stats, which Niner do you think as of now deserves a spot on the NFC Pro Bowl roster not because of his stats, but simply because of the way he has played without regards to stats (e.g. Mike Iupati!?)?
Date: November 9, 2011 at 12:12 AM
Comment: Looking towards the end of the schedule, 4 of our final 5 are against our weak-as-ever divisional opponents.
Say we clinch the #2 seed and a bye, do you think this possible easy finish to the regular season could hurt our chances to advance in the playoffs? (Meaning, we hit the postseason soft?)
Date: November 9, 2011 at 12:06 AM
Comment: Kendall Hunter is an explosive back and he has shown some great things when he is on the field. Why isn't he getting more playing time. Why do the niners continue to pound Gore like they do and not give him more rest. If we lose Gore completely to injury we will be hurting in the playoffs.
Date: November 9, 2011 at 12:01 AM
Comment: Seeing how unpredictable JH can be, do you think he will let Alex air it out against New York and catch them totally off guard?
Date: November 8, 2011 at 11:30 PM
Comment: Do you think that the 9ers D will tire towards the end of the season if the offense can't keep them off the field for a few games here an there?
Date: November 8, 2011 at 11:26 PM
Comment: I've heard a lot about how Aldon, Chris and Bruce are doing a well and improving, but how are the other rookies coming along?
Date: November 8, 2011 at 10:56 PM
Comment: The Niners offense has been really conservative. And really boring to watch most of the this year. Why havent we seen more down field deep passes and more braylon edwards tailored plays to use him to his best ability?

Comment: Aloha Diego,
Saw my first 49er game at Keasar, as a tiny tot, had a dog named Brodie as a young boy, and drove around to all the Waikiki hotels hunting for San Fransico news papers during the 80-81 season.
Here's my question: It's been exactly 30 years, and I've been feeling Deja Fu since Harbaugh's hire in January. Enjoyed every coaching hire, suffered thru the lockout, thrilled with the fast fury of Free Agency, and saw every step of growth and development from Pre-Season to the Mid-Point of the season. What are your thoughts on the Deja Fu I've been enjoying all year?

Comment: With the way the offense has played throughout the first half of the season do you see the offensive key components gel and start making more explosive plays?(besides Frank Gore)

Comment: Will the 49ers be more respected with a win against the NY Giants?
Date: November 8, 2011 at 10:13 PM
Comment: Do you think we can compete with the top tier NFL teams, such as the Packers, Saints, Ravens, Steelers, Etc? Speaking of draft which position do we go after?
