btw i am not a newbie, i been following this site for yrs and these posts as will, i just don't like to post cause there some ruthless ppl on here, that makes you think the we aren't cheering for the same team, but for rivials
Great first post, I agree with you. All you really need to succeed in the NFL is a good QB and a great defense. Sure, good WRs and RBs help and you need some options for your QB but its the most important position. If we add a few more great players to our D somehow, through draft and FA, and we get a QB like Palmer and put him under a real offensive HC like Harbaugh, we could get a lot farther than we have. We almost made the playoffs in this craptastic division with mediocre QB play and a horrendous head coach. We know we're going to get better coaching, so if we get a better QB we should go pretty far.
We have plenty of options on offense for whoever the QB is, Vernon, Gore, and Crabtree. Plus we have some other young guys who could turn out like DIxon and Morgan. It's not exactly fireworks like the Eagles WR corp or anything, but it's not like the cupboard is bare either. We just need a QB who can hit them and make the opponent fear the pass to make Gore more successful. Our OLine is young and getting better too. So he would have something to work with here. We should do it.
