With a full off-season of OTAs, mini-camps, and training camp for the offense and defense to really learn their respective playbooks, I believe the 49ers will be even better in 2012. A tougher schedule will result in only 12 wins, but we will see better production on both sides of the ball.
You never know what a key off-season acquisition might do, especially if it's a wide receiver who will help take the focus away from Vernon Davis and Crabtree. Shoring up the offensive line is another area of need. If Baalke and Harbaugh find some help at the guard position, and some depth at tackle, then that will be key to providing better protection for Alex (if he's re-signed).
I'd be very happy with a 12-4 record, and absolutely thrilled with anything better than that.
