49ers 2011 Season PREDICTIONS

Originally posted by oldman9er:
Not gonna criticize any predictions, but I think the improvement in coaching (and therefore in-game adjustments) will take us to the NFCW crown. Looking at 9 or 10 wins... though a better second half of the season than the first.

Yep, this is what I'm thinking (hoping).

Camp not starting on time is going to impact us a lot more than most teams, unless a deal is struck soon 2011 won't be pretty.
It's really hard to say which games we'll win and which we'll lose since we'll probably win a couple everyone expects us to lose and lose 1 or 2 everyone expects us to win, but I think either the lockout will really f**k us and we'll only win 6 or 7 games, or Harbaugh makes a huge difference and we win 10 or 11 games.
We will make the playoffs and lose in the 2nd round.

An embarrassingly slow start, with a strong finish, 8-8. Harbaugh's WCO is a coordinated effort, and this team has been uncoordinate for so long. It will be like Walsh's first year.

that year we went 2-14.

That team had less talents than this one however. Walsh's subsequent drafts and trades did wonders for the team.
I will try my best to make an unbiased and honest season prediction. That being said, I am as big a homer as they come.

vs. Seattle Seahawks FOX 4:15 p.m. Win

vs. Dallas Cowboys. based off last year, Win

at Cincinnati Bengals. without Carson, Win

at Philadelphia Eagles. To much talent, Loss

vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I believe this team is on the verge of being Elite, Lose

at Detroit Lions FOX 1 p.m. Tough to call, in Detroit. If their healthy, Loss

Bye

vs. Cleveland Browns. Will be good eventually but not their year yet, Win

at Washington Redskins. Win

vs. New York Giants. Loss

vs. Arizona Cardinals. I see another sweep of the cards, Win

at Baltimore Ravens. Though I'd love to say we will win this game cause we will come out fired up for the bro vs bro rivalry, the ravens are to good, Loss

vs. St. Louis Rams Won't lose at home to a division team, Win

at Arizona Cardinals. Win

vs. Pittsburgh Steelers. Their the Steelers, Loss

at Seattle Seahawks. After last year? Win

at St. Louis Rams, Only game in division I see us losing, Loss.

9-7?

9-7?

I actually can see it really going down like this.
This team will be pretty bad. No offseason of work with the new HC. No offseason of work to install the new system. Huge question marks at QB, CB, FS, SS and an OLB pass rusher who is young and raw. A RB coming off a very serious injury.

This team could easily lose lots of games. A top 5 pick is not out of the question.
I'm going with 9-7 with a possible wild card.

I don't see the rams, cards or seachickens running away with the west.

Vic F will have the defense playing at a higher level.
Without a preseason or training camp, half the season will go by before the players understand the Harbaugh and Fangio game plans and are comfortable in the systems. By comfortable I mean they get to a point they gel and can trust their teammates to carry out assignments as second nature.

It will also take about that long for the coaches to understand what their players bring to the table and refine their playbooks to take advantage of what they have. Until then any gaps will get exploited by opponents, and the team will look like a mess at times.

So during the first half of the season the Niners will be lucky whenever they win a game, regardless of their opponents, who should generally be better prepared. The second half will be a mystery, but let's say the Niners win about half those games. So maybe they win 5 or 6 games in 2011.
We will have an 8-8 record only because of the lockout. Without the lockout, our record would have been somewhwere around say 10-6.

agreed. SMH at the people once again getting their hopes up for this season. The lockout screwed up everything.
6-10... We lose our first 6 games due to Smith. Then Kap will come in and play well. Leading to him starting next year.
