The Niners are relatively young and the the strength of the team, defense, has been consistently good for a few years. If they keep most of their free agents and improve the personnel on offense, I think it's reasonable to expect them to be in the playoff hunt for the next five years. This team isn't a one-shot wonder that was hastily assembled with high priced free agent talent. They have pretty good cap room, have been drafting better, have a GM with a good eye for bargain talent and a coach who is smart and intense. I think we're going to win consistently like the Steelers or Pats. You can always get injuries and bad breaks, but we'll be knocking on the door. That's my take.
