Absolutely our last chance with the current group.

Though they have a couple years left (of good production) players like Justin Smith, Ray McDonald, Frank Gore, Anquan Boldin are players that are getting long in the tooth and as each season passes they are all candidates to age over night and not be at their top rated playing levels.
Whether we lose both Crabtree and Iupati remains to be seen, but at time when both have developed into solid assets to the team, if both are lost and any combination of the fore mentioned players, the roster landscape changes drastically, throw in the fact that at some point this coaching staff is going to go through changes, it puts a new level of importance for the current team to achieve what they haven't been able to do the past three years.

I'm not saying that everything is going to fall apart after this season, but I do think this is the last season we will see all these players at the level they can attain a championship and also the coaching staff unchanged.

There's too much talent for this roster to go through a true rebuilding year, but with the loss of some of the leaders on the current roster, I do think we might *suffer* through a 9-7, or even 8-8 period.

We need to get the job done this season, just like Vernon Davis has already stated....

You named 4 guys on a 53-man roster, several of whom are likely to remain after this season (Ray McDonald is 29).

By your logic, every season is the last season with the current group. That's still way below average turnover for an NFL roster. Most of our core guys are young or in their prime and will remain for the foreseeable future: Kap, Aldon, Crab, Bowman, Willis, Vernon, Anthony Davis, Boone, Reid, Brock, etc.

The importance of this draft for the immediate future is vastly overstated. The Seahawks got almost no immediate production from their 2013 draft and still won the Super Bowl. The real importance of this draft is keeping us competitive for years to come.


What did they get from their FA signings??

I know our FA additions this year are much less than what Seattle added last year.

Foreseeable future....??? Lol, not very solid when you're talking about an All Pro LB. That just got his knee shredded and no one even knows what level he will return to, a WR that unless is franchised, is most likely gone, a franchise pass rusher who is one mental mishap from being off the team and though a stud player, a S that has shown an ability to attract concussions....

Yes, a very stable future indeed, by this logic, why worry about anything at all???

I didn't say last chance ever, I said with this group of talent that will undoubtedly be much different next season than what it has the past three seasons....

Exactly. Everyone needs to chill with this "last chance/closing window" nonsense and understand that we are set up to compete for years to come.

Our roster is significantly younger than almost every other perennial contender's.

Yes, Justin Smith is aging, but we went to a Super Bowl when he was basically rendered ineffective by the triceps injury. Plus, we drafted Tank Carradine with his eventual loss in mind.

Yes, Frank Gore is aging, but we have Kendall Hunter, Marcus Lattimore, and LMJ behind him. Plus, we could very well draft another back this year.

We are not on the verge of massive roster turnover. Not even close.
this last chance, closing window garbage has evolved even in year one of JH when so many proclaimed we have been exposed after the ravens loss on thanksgiving and we are back to our old ways, lucky to finish 7-9 etc etc . please people
Brandin Cooks today
Stephon Tuitt and Pierre Desir tomorrow.
Oh whoops, the thread is just for expectations TODAY, as in the first round. In that case, best player available that's not a QB, RB, TE, OL, or Safety. Trade up if getting good value on the trade up.
I fully expect Cooks or Beckham to be a 49er today.

we upgraded our safety position with our free agency, in my opinion, and unless you just became a niner fan yesterday, you should know we do not break the bank for sexy free agents nor are we in a spot where we have tons of holes to fill in free agency so we just make clever use of it,, I also do not give a rip about what seattle does,, i only concern myself with what we do and how we build this team for the future and for a deep run in the playoffs every year which we have done a good job in.on the other side of the coin, bowman can come back 100 per cent, plus we have fine back ups so it will not be tragic with the time he will miss, aldon can get it together and our safety will be a long term guy. you can cherry pick the "possible" negatives but you also have to be objective and look at those things from a positive point of view to

I don't think we'll be able to find a trade partner to nab one of those two guys. But, I pulling for it.

Never said anything about breaking the bank to add sexy FAs, so not sure where that came from. I just said Seattle's draft situation last year does not compare to our situation this year.

The simple point is, this year we are certain to have the talented player core intact that will undoubtedly be different next year due to the likely losses of a couple key elements to the current roster.

We still have the talent, we have a ton of picks, the time is now to add quality from the draft to get the current talented roster over the hump...

Simple as that.
I expect a 70% member meltdown after our first round pick… and I expect a 85% chance I won't be able to load the forum in or around our pick.

I also expect the offense to be 95% faster and more dynamic than it is right now. C'mon Brandin...

I have no specific expectations.

I feel entirely comfortable with my lack of expectations.

I would like to see the 49ers draft Jordan Matthews and Jimmie Ward, but I do not expect them to do so.

I agree 100 per cent with bullet point number one, just like they did when we drafted aldon smith
If you remove the retard roman factor from the table i would really love to agree with you in regards to bullet point number two
Sammy Watkins.
