This is the first year I am thinking to myself "another off season with Jed, Baalke, and Harbaugh and we will be that much better. Can't wait to get a decent receiving corps and be back in the NFC championship next year! then hopefully superbowl.

Sorry but I don't buy it. I agree that we will probably be in the playoffs next year but we will never get this close again with this team. This was our chance. We peaked. You can't just be happy to be there...you have to go out and win it all when you're this close. See the 2010 SF Giants.
Opportunities are few and far in between in the NFL and this was ours.
It's amazingly hard to go 13-3, have a bye and have a home game in the NFC Championship.
Hi Debbie Downer!
We got here bc we officially have a legit coach and GM who know what they are doing (Saints, Patriots, Giants, Pitt etc) who had very little to prepare this year.
We will get better, hopefully enter team of the decade talk.
I don't doubt that we will be better...but that doesn't necessary equate to a better record or a better chance at a Super Bowl.
Again, this was our chance and we (Kyle Williams) f**ked it up.
Wow. I absolutely disagree with you on every level. There is absolutely zero reason to be pessimistic on the 49ers future.
- Most of the starters will be back
- Superstar coach
- Superstar GM
- All-world defense with pro bowlers on every level
- QB who is incredibly stable, efficient and clutch.
- Tons of cap room to sign our FAs and plug holes
- Tied for the league lead in Pro Bowl players
Will we get a first-round bye? Maybe not. But we will be back in the playoffs for the foreseeable future. And as we've seen this year, anything can happen once you're in.
We had a hell of a year when NO ONE including many people on this board gave us a shot. To come within one muffed punt of Super Bowl speaks volumes about the character of this team, and the coaching ability of Jim Harbaugh. We WILL be back next year. Book it.
