My reaction to the Aldon Smith pick was, Who? Who was that they took? Did the announcers get that name right?
I thought it was time to move on from Alex Smith. Not because I shared the opinions of a number of other people. I just thought we knew what we were getting with him. Jury is still out on that one, nice to see him throw a TD with the game on the line.
Please pass the crow this way, I'll start nibbling on it as an appetizer until the full course of crow is ready.
I cant remember what I predicted, but your offseason point is good. Even now, I dont understand why the lack of time seemed to have little impact. I mean, this was a given. Rookie HC straight from College, troubled team, struggling to find its identity and with a shortage of leaders, and those we had were, as it were, playing at the wrong positions. Young and inexperienced GM. Unsure future in home stadium and even city.
Textbook for a poor season. I was very optimistic, but about the 2012 season! 2011? Be fair. You have to give the man time.
Except we didn't. And I just dont understand why. Perhaps Harbaugh is even better than advertised, or perhaps we had more talent than we realised, and had just been incapable of using it. But the team looks good.
But 2012 still looks great!
