Too much flux in player and coaching personnel. New offense, new defense, new special teams and key pieces are now missing. I think coaching can make up for some of it, but we're headed for a losing season.
Niners lose the first 12 games and Willis/VD demands to be traded. Balke trades Willis for a 5th round pick. Patriots sweet talk balke into trading VD and their 2012 first round draft pick for Danny Woodhead.
