I think all the Niner's problems have been mentioned on this thread and I agree. But as one poster pointed out it all comes down to the QB. Without legit QB play we are not dominate enough on either side of the ball to win against good teams. Maybe Shaun Hill will play well and we worry for nothing, but based on preseason I doubt it.
As I've posted in other threads, I think Hill will be exposed. As we saw towards the end of the season, teams will begin to crowd the line and take away the short passes and screens which will force Hill to look down field to make a play, but he wont be able to consistently.
AZ is a perfect example of how a stud QB can turn a loser into a winner overnight.
The good news is 2011 we should at least two first rouders and hopefully (if we are smart) we can parley that into 3 maybe 4 if Crab doesn't work out. We can completely retool by next year.......of course.....it's next year....
