~ Aldon Smith pass rush. Include Justin Smith, Ray MacDonald, and Ahmad Brooks.
~ Alex making better decisions, being more accurate and not turning it over.
~ Special teams is truly special. Akers, Lee and Ginn are playing at Pro Bowl levels. We have an AWESOME special teams. An overlooked and undervalued category. They consistenty have put us in good positions.
~ Kendall Hunter is an awesome backup.
~ Gore back from injury better than exptected.
~ The secondary seems better when some of the guys got back from injuries and the lineup changes. Not getting burned as much.
~ Carlos Rogersis a huge upgrade. Never seen him play this well.
~ Braylon Edwards is still coming back. He adds another dimension.
We have among the best coaching staffs in all of football. Yes I put them that high. Who could turn what we had for 10 years into this but Harbaugh and his staff? The defense is stingy. They special teams is awesome. The O Line is big and powerful run blockers. The RB's are very good and we have more than 1. Alex is making better decisions and not turning it over and when we get down he is capable if leading us back to victory on the road against a good team. When did you ever see that before?
So can we beat the real top teams and make it to the top? Like New Orleans, Green Bay, Chargers, and Patriots?
