Oh no, that horse's a** and his stupid suit...probably the most embarrassed I've ever been as a Niners fan, and that's saying a lot considering some of the slop I've seen going back to the mid-70s.
1976 was not embarrassing
No, not embarrassing, but those 4 straight losses did suck eggs though...I had heard from my dad and uncle about these so-called "playoffs" the 49ers had been in 1970-72, so when they started off 6-1 I thought for sure I'd get to see them. You know how that turned out, we had to suffer through a few head coaches, Joe Thomas, an arthritic Orenthal, and just some bad bad football until 1981.
The moves on CBs and Safeties at this time are critical. Brown's contract runs out after this year. Rogers, Whitner and Nnamdi will likely be gone after this year as well. Decisions made now are with these things all in mind as well as the cap space. So, how do you prepare for this season and at the same time, tee up next season with the best defensive backfield?
Between Brown, Rogers, Nnamdi, and Whitner, I bet at least 2 of them will be on 2014 team. And we already have potential replacements (Culliver, Spillman, Dahl, Cox, Brock, etc...those guys will have plenty of time and opportunities to impress Fangio), plus there's the 2013 and 2014 draft and 2014 free agency. Not worried one bit.
