I remember the 70's battles with the Cowboys, and I am 53 in a couple days. You could be in your early 30's and remember the 90's battles with the Cowboys if you started watching football at a young age. For one I think we have to win the division so we don't end up playing at C-Link in the play-offs.Kap needs to get better as a pocket passer, hopefully Lattimore will replace Gore, and maybe get a burner wide receiver that stretches the field.
It comes down to one thing above all else: coaching.
I really hate to admit this, but Seattle OWNS us in this department and I have to say I admire what Pete Carroll has managed to pull off up in Seattle. That team was absolutely nowhere three years ago and now they just had the biggest rout in Super Bowl history since 1992 against the supposed best QB of the modern era.
There is no reason why we should always have our snaps come up right against the play clock. There is no reason why we should always be running out of timeouts. There is no reason why our play calls should be predictable as all hell and why we can't run simple screens or fade routes. There is no reason why our secondary should be biting so badly on plays like that long TD in the Seattle game.
Two years ago we had more talent than Seattle. Last year we had more talent than Seattle. This year we had as much talent as Seattle. Seattle spanked us in December last year and they outperformed us this year. No reason why that should happen when we started off with a more stacked team than they did. Right now Carroll owns Harbaugh, and Harbaugh needs to step up. He can start by dumping the cancer that is Greg Roman.
People always get on Kap for not having time to read his progressions but the reason for that is he has no time! Go back and look at the turnovers in the Seattle game, they were all mostly caused because of Seattle's defensive pressure and the o-line getting burnt. Niners need to build a DOMINANT o-line to beat Seattle's D. Thats the only solution to beat a dominant D like Seattle has.
2. They need a new RB
Gore has run out of gas.
3. Need a fast WR
To stretch the field. Although it does no good if the o-line cant give the QB time to throw.
3. They need a good corner
When you think about it the Niners have still not faced Seattle with a healthy Percy Harvin. Thats a scary thought.
