Justin Smith has (prob) 2 more seasons. He is our best player. Players as dominant as Justin aren't available. You either draft them or sign them (Out of price range).
Eventually I envision us slowly losing our physical identity, as Justin and Gore leave. We are regarded as one of the leagues most physical defenses so we have room to spare in that department. The sky is certainty not falling but it isn't as rosy as you describe it either.
Packers losing to the Vikings will be a ''break'' that I'll never forget. To win the Championship you need breaks. Breaks help fuel locker rooms and turn them into almost delusional believers. It's needed and we got it.
Sure you have to keep drafting well. However, we now have a real QB that can do more than just manage games, one of the top head coaches in football, and a great leadership at the top. What team does have it "rosy" as you say? What team has a better foundation of GM, HC, and QB than the Niners? I wouldnt trade our situation for any other team.
