Seattle is going to be much tougher than some here think. They are healthy and the players really like Mora. He brings a lot of energy that was lacking under Holmgren. There is still a lot of talent on that team. If Jones is healthy and Tutupo can play, it will be tough.
I still see the 49ers at 8-8, at best.
Thank you Debbie Downer.
That 8-8 is optimistic imo.
I am usually pretty pessimistic about everything. But 8-8 seems very doable. 9-7 if things really go our way.
Beating the Falcons and GB at home is highly doubtful though. The Vikings one I think we match up well.
Overall, even though we have mostly the same roster, it was for the most part a young roster with plenty of players who are coming into their own. What we lack for in scheme our coaches make up in fundamentals. For the first time I am not lighting Niner Talk b***hing about everything and that is a good feeling. I still have issues with a lot of things, but nothing like in the past.
9-7 would be a very successful year for this team, and I think is very doable.
