The offense is in the bottom 5 of the NFL (with teams like Cleveland, St.Louis, and Oakland). When we get a lead, our coaches get super-conservative, and it has cost us 2 games we should have won. The HC/OC refuse to consistently run a formation that our new Qb has success in.
you are worrying for nothing
How is that worrying about nothing?

Our defense and the NFC West.
Since our offense has been the primary reason we've lost games this year, "the defense" doesn't matter. It's not good enough to overcome how bad our offense has been. Try again.
The NFC West? Out of our remaining 9 games, we only have 3 games against NFC West opponents. The NFC West does help us b/c it's rather weak this year, but that won't help us in games against Chicago, Green Bay, and Philly. To make the playoffs, we must have a better record than the Cardinals. Their remaining schedule is easier than ours. It's not impossible, but our offense has to wake up for it happen. "Our defense and the NFC West" won't change that.

Smith/Crabtree/V.Davis/Gore, these are some solid weapons that will slowly begin to emerge in the next few weeks.
Translation: you expect the offense to get much better than it is right now.
If Singletary can put his ego aside and let them play an offensive style that better suits Smith, then it could happen.....could happen. Until it actually does happen, there is a legitimate reason for worry.
