Routine Organization

We seem to be going through some deja vu here. Let me explain.

The past few years we win some games toward the end of the season, these games are normally "playing for pride" type of games. FALSE HOPE.

Somebody gets fired or hired and promises to make things better,( it could be a head coach or offensive coach or even front office,ex 49er players or owners son). This gets us talking about a better future.

We bring in some free agents.To keep us quiet,sugar us up.

Then when the season ends we get fired up about the draft, we usually get some good players.This keeps us optimistic about our future.

We wrap it up by a few training camps,pre-season games and we start to talking nonsense about best in the west and wanting winners.

The season begins and we win a few games, we are on a roll and then the wheels begin to fall off. Deja Vu.

This cycle has got to stop and the only way it will stop is..........?

yeah once we are eliminated from the playoffs, we ball out! But I think the trend might break soon! I think with the talent we have, plus 2 first rd picks, we can maybe go spread and with a solid draft class, get over the hump!
Ya! And we always have a losing streak in the middle of the season. It has happened the past 3 seasons. Bad coaching
well that's not a routine....it's a tradition now

Boy even worse, we have come to expect it every year. It should be our holiday.
Some things are the same.

1. We are still a losing team.
2. Still no pass rush.
3. Don't have a sure fire franchise QB
4. Bad O-Line

However some things are very different from the previous 4 years.

1. We are no longer doormats. We are an average team, maybe slightly below average, than can compete week in and week out with ANY team in the NFL. Instead of being blown out, we do just enough to barely lose.
2. We actually have talent at wide receiver. So much talent that we may have to finally say bye bye to Arnaz Battle, which I know is a big deal for the Battle haters who have wanted him gone for years.
3. The emergence of Vernon Davis. I couldn't have imagined in my wildest dreams that Vernon Davis would step his game this much. He has shown he is a player and I hope he receives an extension.
4. The emergence of a strong D-Line. Overall, our D-line has played good to great football and have destroyed the myth that all we needed was a dominant NT and that would fix our pass rush problems. That dominant NT (along with good DEs) have come on this year and the pass rush is still lacking.
5. The emergence of an offensive identity. I think the entire nation can the roots of what can be a productive offense. We are just waiting for the coaching staff to catch on.

So we have made some strides. Enough to warrant seeing what we can do next year with a little continuity. Even with Alex Smith at QB, I think if the O-line, pass rush, and offensive philosophy issues are changed, we can realistically expect a playoff appearance next season as opposed to hoping for one this season.

Yes Life long I agree with you that we had made progress, but we needed to address these same issues last season and the season before. Even with these improvements that you mentioned above......we find ourselves upset for the same exact reason, the cycle continues.
It's the Battered wife syndrome!

She takes a beating and leaves her man only to return because it will be different this time!

They will change, they don't really mean to do it. They really do love us.
