I used to wish for a top QB like Montana or Young - a driving RB like Craig (which in way we might have if Gore stays healthy) - a receiver like Rice or Taylor (and maybe Crabtree ISN'T a bust) - a TE like Jones (and Walker and Davis may be better than that as a team) - and guys like Cross and big Bubba and the rest. And the latter is a problem now.
But where I didn't like what I saw from Nolan, I hope that by the end of Nov I'm not saying that about Singletary. I sincerely thought he was the guy to move the 49ers into the playoffs and win.
I'm not so sure, anymore. Houston's an important game. With two weeks to prepare, it will give a good sense of not only where this team is, but where it's going. In the first Walsh Superbowl year, by this time, it was clear that the 49ers had a winning 'identity'. In 2009, I don't see the same, five games in.
