Looking Forward . . .

Looking Forward . . .

Since the season is effectively over and a top-5 draft spot is almost assured, we might as well start fantasizing about the off-season.

I'm trying to be optimistic and think that we have approx. 5 years to be decent before the new stadium opens . . . which move(s) do you think help us to get there?

My primary desire is to get somebody in charge who knows offense. The contemporary NFL is a pass-happy league with rules designed to protect QB's and coddle receivers. Our record is likely to be awful this year, so we will have at least 2-3 more highly talented players on the roster next year with many talented players at key skill positions (with the exception of QB).

On balance, my preference would be to bring-in Brian Billick, since he knows how to emphasize offense in a warm weather city / dome (Like Minnesota/San Fransisco) and emphasize defense in a cold weather city (Like Baltimore).

The notion that you can force one style of play into any situation is an artifact of the '80's when the absence of a salary cap meant there were truly elite teams. In the current NFL, nobody has the depth of talent to dominate with smash-mouth. There is too much parity across the league, and injuries require strategic adjustments. Singletary seems like a nice enough guy, but he is clearly behind the curve.

Bill Walsh created the 49ers dynasty by seeing where the NFL was going before anybody else, and built a team that established the new paradigm. The current staff is still stuck in the way things were, and is being ground into dust by the wheels of change.
