My only concern is that you have 2 "new" guys in their respective positions. Im hoping the learning curve isnt that steep, but if you add a rookie QB to the mix (and chances are this QB will not be Luck), then you're really putting yourself back in "rebuild" mode.
Im hoping that Harbaugh/Baalke see that the team has a "win now" mentality, and go out and sign some key FAs (QB / DB) in the offseason to keep this team in the NFC playoff hunt. If Harbaugh decides he's gonna build this team from the bottom up, then you're looking at another 2-3 years of putting a squad together. Of course, by that time STL and Bradford might become a thorn in our ass.
If harbaugh is signed--he should talk to every Niner player under contract and see what each is about---Harbaugh and Baalke may decide to explode everything and rebuild---or more likely there are some really good pieces here and some weaknesses-----
I think Harbaugh has to like the Niners skill players and O line---the youth and talent that " should" get much better. We have some good players on defense.
We need the QB, pass rusher, secondary help, a # 1 WR and just more speed.
