One QB and Coach away

hasn't this been the case for 7 years now, except now we have less holes than we did back then.

Harbaugh, Cam Newton and a CB or two. #6 for the trophy case in a year or two

we don't have less holes by any means. We still have the same needs if not more. We need a safety to replace I can't make a play if my life depended on it Goldson. We need to replace Clements and fast!! because the only thing he can do is get beat. Still looking for the quintessential NT for the 3-4 (don't say we're moving back to the 4-3 because until we actually do we still run a 3-4). Hole at RG anyone? Hole at FB anyone? Hole at QB anyone? Hole at WR anyone (I'm not sold on Michael "I give up on plays" Crabtree)?

we're always going to have "holes" on our team. It's not 1984, we can't just sign and draft all-stars at every position. an offensive hc and an above average qb would do wonders for this team.

Every team has holes. I was referring to his comment about having less holes than before. I disagree and feel we have the same amount of holes as nothing was ever really addressed.
its very obvious that without a QB, you go nowhere in todays NFL. browse through the 2011 NFL draft order. its no coincidence that from worst to best it almost 100% accurately reflects the rankings of each teams QB situation.

what annoys me is, i see teams like ATL, BAL, NYJ, TB, STL, even DET who all just recently drafted their QB's, and they are panning out really well for them. all 6 of those teams picked QB's out of college that were all in that jumble of draft day QB's, some busts, some gems, and they all picked correctly.

we need to make a pick like that ASAP. a Matt Ryan type draft pick would do wonders for this organization.
Hire Harbaugh, sign Kolb. Cant afford to start another rookie QB after the disaster of the last five years.

I don't know about elite.

________

If "elite" is 14-2, then no. But 10-12 wins would've been possible. Assuming we get a veteran QB, a first round QB and better coaching...we have many of the pieces in place to win games in the playoffs.

If we had a good coaching staff and QB we beat both NO and ATL and PHI. Thats 9-7 and we're in the playoffs.

________

None of those games were guaranteed wins with a different coach. The coach didn't fumble the ball away or throw an interception at the end of those games.

As VD said, everyone was too afraid of making mistakes. Removing that by having a different coach could have made a difference on the outcome of the game.
Two positions

Passrush
QB

If we can get impact players at those two positions everything changes for this team. I like LaBoy but he's not an every-down-we-must-account-for-him player. Until the 49ers get that player they will continue to get torched by the pass. LaBoy had almost as many sacks/pressure as the rest of our passrushers combined. I'm tired of "manufacturing" pressure because if you adjust and it gets beat, the secodary gets rocked. Again s great example is the Jets. Great secondary but average passrush.

QB - we all know can be a game changer.

If we bring in personnel for these two granted we have like every team - limited resources, I think we more than make the play-offs with a new offensive-minded coach of course.
Fisher and Cam Newton

I think I'd rather have Harbaugh and Smith (yes, THAT Smith).

All the teams you mentioned have good coaching staffs. The 49ers,,,eh
If you are just talking playoffs this year, this team could have got in there with even Alex Smith. The Seachickens are in at 7-9. All the Niners had to do was play a little smarter & they would have won the NFC West. I pin that fuggup of sloppiness, lack of adjustment, and chickensh*t offensive play on the coaching staff.

Im sorry But Im actually glad the niners didnt make the playoffs why? Simple,,,the Saints are playing better than they were when the Niners barely lost to them and for that extra game and a LOUSY 7-9 record whats their reward? A best pick at #21 ...14 picks later than what they have now.

Its frustrating. The 49ers are just as talented as those teams that made the playoffs. 49ers have enough talent on offense, defense and special teams to be one of the elite teams. Just need a veteran QB like McNabb or Kolb and a offensive minded coach to make it all come together.

Have you checked McNabb's stats or performance lately? I am not ready to say he is washed up, but I don't know that he is the answer either. Maybe with the right OC and system he could produce, but he would be more of a short term solution, rather than the ANSWER.

You don't think Shanahan qualifies as the right offensive coordinator? And the WCO that he made the pro bowl like 6 times isn't the right system?
