I read different media around the net and have yet to see something that says the Niners are better than 7 wins. Several have said 4 or 5. I know I am a homer and I don't have a problem with that, but am I dellusional too? I see us as 9-7, maybe win the West, get blown out in the 1st round.
Gore and running backs - Supposedly top 5 in the league
WR's - supposedly tons of depth and a few playmakers
TE - supposedly the most physically talented TE in the league
Staley - supposedly very good LT
Justin Smith - supposedly a good/great sack artist
Willis - the best/one of the best LB's in the league
Lawson - supposedly great cover LB with tremendous speed to get to the QB
Haralyson - supposedly great at providing QB pressure
Clements - supposedly "lockdown"
Bly - supposedly very big playmaker
This is talent at 10 of the 20 positions on the field at any time. (WR as 2).
If you've got above average/very good/great players at half the spots and at least average everywhere else shouldn't we be way better?? Am I just a pathetic homer or are we sceretly going to have a great year and the rest of the football world has no idea yet?
