How do you see the offense in 2012

The more I think about needs the OLine keeps popping up. They can't have as many QB hits and sacks if they want Smith to stay healthy, and they need to develop the running game more. Much of this will be helped by full camps during the off season but I still worry about Goodwin and the RG position.

As much as I would like them to take a WR or Fleener in the first...might be more prudent to take the best C/G available. But then that assumes they could be starters right away and rookie OLinemen rarely start. Is there much of a drop off between #30 and #61 for the Gs? They seem so close to being a dominant team I really want them to shore up the few remaining areas of concern.
Basicly I think things will be the same. The only thing I forsee different in our offence is there will be a whole lot of big plays and more redzone scoring. We're in for an exciting year. Hold on cause this draft is gonna be a more productive group than last year

Yep I agree. I really felt like the 49ers had zero holes going into this draft but the more I think about it, the more I realize they need OLinemen.

They still have to replace Snyder's spot with someone to compete with Kilgore and I'd like to see a draft pick or two go to the line. With last year's success, I've kinda forgotten how many times Smith was on his back. They'd go hot and cold (allowing 8 sacks in one game and 0 the next). Gotta be more consistent.

Safety and OLB are other positions where they have to add depth in the draft/FA.

In HarBaalke I trust.

Although I know it's not a very popular opinion I'm certainly with you. While I understand the frustration about "We've already spent enough picks on the O-line," you have to keep building the O-line until you get it right. The O-line is just too important for compromises.
If Moss and Manningham can catch up to Alex's deep balls (seems like he throws farther than he needs too, just to be sure it isn't picked) the offense is going to be top 15.
Steady diet of Gore/Hunter/Jacobs, throws to VD/Crabs, and the occasional shot downfield to the M&Ms = top 15.

Too high? I don't think so. A whole off-season to learn the offense should do the team wonders
i think this one deserves a



With all the new additions made on the offense fa/draft i just want to get an early handle on how my fellow zoners feel about yet unseen version of the 2012 offense. Do these new additions represents a philosophical change form the types of players acquired in the past? Or are we just watching the HarRoman (NFL) philosophy develope right before our eyes (would hope that those of you who watched a lot of Stanford ball to help out). As for myself, I'm hoping to see something different from last year. I would like to see a pass on 1st down a swing pass or something that isn't the last resort check down, a TE reverse, a 2RB 3WR with the Tank being Alex's personal body guard/security blanket aka blitz picker upper/check down guy, 3TE set that produces a big play pass, hell, show me a statue of liberty play. Just like everybody else i would love to see more dynamic plays out of the recievers not named vernon. I'm not talking about a 180 degree shift becoming the Pats west, think more Andy Ried light... ok ultra light. I hope they find a way to buck the trend, keep any and every D guessing by not showing their hand (tendencies) better yet be masters of slight of hand regardless of down and distance and personel package whenever possible. Of course there are going to be moments when trickery just aint gonna work or maybe HarRoman won't want to fool anybody. A little bit of success can go a long way and i hope that this years version can have that type of early success so as to plant that seed of doubt in any D all season long.


what say u??


GO NINERS!!!!
