The 49ers are the NFL's most well-rounded elite team by just about every single measure. Quantifiable evidence in every category.
yup, and when you think about it, we are still not playing up to our potential. New England may have already peaked, Baltimore certainly has, and its unlikely that Green Bay will keep up the torrid pace of their passing game. Pittsburgh is the only team in the top 5 that is starting
to click, rather than trying to figure out some newly exposed flaw or maintain a ridiculous pace.
What the next 9 games hold for the 49ers, no one knows, but we have only played one really complete game. I think we haven't seen the best from this team yet.
