New England has the dead last ranked defense in football, they shouldn't even be ranked in the top 5. We are the most balanced of the top teams, I am not convinced that any team in the NFL has a more complete TEAM than we do. Now does that mean we will win out, not at all, but I am sure we can beat any other team out there if we play our game. We are born again hard in an age of pansy asses in the NFL, no one looks at the Niners as an easy win anymore. If I am not mistaken, we have put every starting halfback we have faced on the bench hurt, not sure if that has ever happened in the league before. We are what Singletary envisioned come to be, and God help anyone that has the misfortune of becoming an obstacle to our inevitable victory.
For the sake of argument, remove the quarterback position from the NFL.
We have the most talent in the league overall. Defense is top 3, special teams is top 3, rushing game will quickly become top 3 if it isn't already.
Our passing game can pick up 3rd downs, protect ball and score in the red-zone. Smith might not be elite, but he is certainly playing above average this year and still has room to grow in the offense.
The only thing that is debatable about this team is the quarterback position. However, likely due to Harbaugh, Smith's style of play is complementing our team very well this season.
