So here we are, standing at 3-5, halfway through the season.
After several tough opponents, and a string of crippling injuries to a few of our best players, what do you seriously expect??
We are a young team at virtually all positions.
The offensive line is in flux.
We knew that we didn't have a franchise QB coming into the season. Hopefully we come out of it with one.
We have ANOTHER first year offensive coordinator.
We essentially are in the first year of a "new" defensive system.
We have a first year head coach.
We didn't make the playoffs last year.
We are playing in a division with the Superbowl representative from last year.
We have a tough schedule.
We don't really have a superstar on offense, though Vernon Davis and Crabtree could be.
So what does all of these factors translate to??? Probably a 9-7 record at best. There is still work to be done.
