Our time to win is NOW..

Seriously.. the more I think about, the more I believe we have to win it all this year or maybe not at all. Yes we will continue to have a very talented team for the forseable future but lets take a look at the division:

Seahawks: 100% legit contenders next season. The team is young and LOADED and will be a pain in our backside for the next 5-10 years.

Rams: Basically beat us twice this season. Loaded with draft pics and a great coaching staff. Def up and coming team.

Cardinals: If they can get one of us to play QB, they'd be a 7 win team. If they get an actual NFL cailiber starting Qb they can be .500 or better.

NFC west is going to be a dog fight for a while.

We need to win it all this year or end up being on one of those NFL network flashback shows of lost rings (something like that)

Yes, we do have to win it all this year. We did last year too. You can never count on getting another opportunity. We should all feel really blessed that the team is getting a chance to redeem the loss in the title game. We can't count in that happening again.
How did the Rams basically beat us twice? Haven't figured out why 49er fans continue to say that.
This is a young team with a young coach and a great GM and a good drafting record. Whilst you always want to win and you never know what the future holds (Dan Marino), there is no reason to believe that we won't be there or thereabouts for the next decade.
it was last year.
Can you imagine a 49ers Championship to go with the SF Giants Championship!!!?

That would be nuts!!!!!!

Since Kap seems to be improving from game to game we could have a top 5 QB on our hands and we have a great coaching staff and a pretty good front office, that should keep toward the top of the NFL for the next 10 years. We also have a pretty young team to boot.
i completly agree, esp with Gronk going down the other day.

If you think Jeff Fisher is a great coach, you need to start following football more then just listening to talking heads on ESPN. Fisher is a good coach and the Rams wont be a cake walk like they have been, but they wont be a team we will have to worry about. Also, no the Rams didn't "basically beat us twice this season", a tie is a tie, the Rams don't magically get more of the credit for it then the 49ers.
if Kaepernick is even 75% of what he was on Saturday on a regular basis, the window is wide open, the defense won't have to carry us anymore

The Rams match up well with us. Plus they already play us tough because of the rivalry.

We were lucky to get a tie in that first game honestly. That Amendola big catch down to the 1 yd line in OT wouldve been a STL win, but the illegal movement brought it back. Then Akers shouldve won it for us, but missed. Even though we only lost 1, both games were failures.

Ive been saying it for weeks now. We match up well against certain types of teams, and poorly against other types.

When we play teams that are built like us, we struggle. We cant get a good physical upperhand. Last year we got beat by BAL. We shouldve beaten the Giants in the playoffs, but theyre another team like that. Couldnt get it done. This year we lost to the Vikings, the Rams, the Giants again, and the Seahawks. All teams built similarly.

But, when we played high flying offenses with less physical defenses? We had alot of success. We beat GB twice. Beat NO on the road, beat NE on the road, beat DET and BUF.

ATL is another high flying offensive team with a mediocre D. Its on the road, so its going to be a tough game, but I like our chances.

If we make the SB, id almost rather see NE again. We know we can beat them, even up in NE. Plus the Ravens are just built to be a tougher matchup for us. NE is clearly better i think, but its all in how teams match up. I think we can beat either AFC team, but with NE losing to a team built like us last year in the SB, NE losing to us at home this year, and NE still fighting the demons of choking in the SB the last 2 times, we will have a legit shot.

You can probably count on one hand the number of Pats who were even on the team the last time they actually won the SB in 2004. Theres not as much confidence and experience as people think.

When was the last time that could be said about a QB in San Fransico... Young maybe

Ok...maybe he's not a "Great coach" But he's still pretty darn good. We didn't beat his team this season did we?? Point is, the NFC West is going to be formidable for a long time, with the talent and draft pics we have amongst each team (think Seattle has 10). We need to close the deal this year.
The window of opportunity opened last year. This year its a little wider but I agreed with the boys on KNBR Saturday that next year is really "the year". Contracts start becoming more of an issue as these years pass.
