i do not think so but the coaches had better have learned something from sunday. i am sure the lid blew up in houston and new england over the weekend. i think we will be ok but today, speaking out of emotion after a game where we were not even competitive,, its tuff

Rubbish.

bu think about it, the Defense is slowly at a decline..we are using our top pass rusher as a cover guy, our offensive system is about the short game.

Our top draft picks are not even suited up, next years pick will be a late one. we wont be able to keep players after this year..and who will replace them?

im probably overreacting, but im embarrassed by this loss
We are just getting started. We'll be fighting for the top spot in our division for many years to come. 2 win seasons are long gone my friends. Even if we don't make the playoffs this or that season, we'll be a competitive team from here on for a good long time.

Alex has another 3 years to go on his contract then Kaep who will only be 25 comes in to take over. It's a 5-7 year window, maybe even longer.

For a long time.

We have a brilliant FO w/Baalke/ Paraage[sp]. So I think we'll be able to draft smart and pick up some quality FA. Are they perfect - NO! BUT they're real good.

JH is a very good coach and he also will continue to improve.

I'm totally optimistic.

You have to look at the QB situation, the salary cap being flat over the next 2-3 yrs, and the players who will need extensions.

I understand that we are realitively young, but at the same time many of our players are at the peak as we speak. And with contracts expiring its only going to get more difficult to hang on to some of our primere talent. I hate to see what would happen if Bowmen hit the FA market.

Only the falcons, chargers lions, cardinals and bears are older than the 49ers. That being said, jettison Akers, L Davis, Rogers, Gore, Goodwin, Moss, J Smith over time and the number comes down.
Elite Superbowl-worthy defense? -CLOSING FAST. Chances of continuous playoff visits? -Wide open.

Yes....Agreed on all the above....It's a bit stickier now with the three other divisional opponents getting much, much better.

he better have learned something from yesterday in my opinion with his little rotating cute qb system.
Good organization and coaches always keep the window open. You retool each year.

This is my biggest concern.. The defense is not as dominate this year. Justin Smith will be another year older, and Soap is no spring chicken himself. Unless we can develop an Elite qb to carry us for the next few years.... I don't see our window being that wide open.
I trust in the management/coaching of this team currently. That trust comes with a string attached. The expectation is that the window to be in the playoffs is always open. 7 or 8 wins in a "rebuilding" year and 10-12 wins in a highly competitive year. Do not want to see us winning 2-5 games ever again, rebuilding or not.

Yep.

The window for defense is probably pretty short: J. Smith has a year or two, Goldson might be in his last year, Bowman probably with two years left here, Soap probably in his last year, and C. Rogers declining in the next two years also.

This, this and then this. It's obvious, to me at least, that the front office drafts and contracts for the future and not just the present. Balke is the key. It depends on how long he stays and if he can replace Harbaugh when he finally burns out, as they all do.
