It don't get much better than what we have.

Almost all #1s on that Oline. Usually when you get a group like that playing for this long together, teams usually already have their first SB.

True. But, our #1's need to play like #1's. Statistically, the o-line regressed this year. In the SuperBowl thread, some charts were thrown up which show us being OUT OF the top 15 in several key o-line rankings. Still, that Seattle D is straight-up dominant. IMO, we need to:

1) Be patient and avoid penalties and turnovers at all costs. We HAD Seattle beat up there until those 3 turnovers.
2) Evolve our playcalling.
3) Improve our secondary. We still allow those 2-3 blown coverage big plays per game. Whether it's Whitner or Carlos Rogers, etc, etc., we need an upgrade.

Seattle is so good that a team has to prey on their mistakes and pitch a perfect game, IMO. That's tough, but, luckily, we're one of the handful of teams that CAN compete with them.

Go 9ers.
I watched the coaches film of the NFC Championship and found myself keying on the Seattle offensive line. They ran the same set over and over again. The entire line would slant right or left and Lynch would follow them or cut back, that's it! The 49ers on the other hand played straight ahead. I don't think the problem is our OL and the scheme is not as bad as it may seem. Due to the crowd noise the 49ers were a half step behind. The only way to beat Seattle is with power. Let's hope Lattimore becomes the X-factor.

Don't turn the ball over is the answer. 3 turnovers in the 4th quarter isn't the answer.

Easier said than done.

I don't believe that.


The best offense in the NFL believes it.

We would have beat the piss out of manning also.

We can also wait when they lose half their secondary next summer to free agency.

we did a good job taking care of the ball before we found ourselves down by 4pts in the 4th QTR. Then our inability to run the ball for most of the game, came back to bite us in the arse. Seahawks knew we had to throw the ball, and they teed off.

but even after all that, we still found a way to move down field late in the game to give ourselves a chance to win it.

Seattle runs a zone blocking scheme which is why you saw that.
-Overall Team Improvement

-Good Drafting

-The boost of now healthy players: Tank, Lattimore, Dial and the forgotten man Ian Williams

I think Carroll and Harbaugh are both good coaches but Carroll seems to have a better eye assessing talent and acquiring players that will be successful in his offensive/defensive schemes.

49ers seem to waste a lot of draft picks that dont pan out. Also their free agent signings other then Boldin hardly make an impact.

On the otherhand look at Seattle's free agent signings and how much impact they made. They got the Seahawks a SB victory,

This is another good point. I posted this in another thread, but it's relevant here too - this is all about a lack of killer instinct. We don't take chances and we always play it conservative and it leads to a lack of killer instinct. So we sign mediocre FAs, we draft players and don't develop them properly, so on and so forth.

What Harbaugh and Baalke have created here is a perfect recipe for a team that will be "good" for a long time, but never "good enough." This is basically the Eagles of the 2000s all over again. It is time for this team to make a decision - either man up, get the killer instinct, and take the chances for a title in 2014 and 2015, or admit that they want to be second place until Seattle fizzles out and bide our time until then to make big moves.

Make one play.
I don't want to 2nd guess this team, staff, ownership etc. We're breaking down individual plays against the best competition. Games that come down to 1 or 2 plays. It's a make/miss league...make the play or miss. One thing I am jealous of is Seattle's ability to go run and hide from another team, just beat their doors in when they have the chance.

We dominated so many games and won by 7 or 10. If we were in this game vs. Denver and got out to that start we wouldn't have finished it off like Seattle did.

Lets hope it's not to Crabtree in the corner. I've seen that movie in 2012 and 2013.....
My guess says they lose Mike Bennett this season for sure, dude was a monster on pass rush.

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.

Well, I'd say our defensive coaching staff is up to par. I respect the job Fangio has done, as well as Tomsula and Donatell. They're always getting the most out of our guys and developing them, I have full trust and faith in our defense. They're championship ready and play like it every Sunday.

As for the offensive coaching staff, it's a completely different story and this is where I believe our biggest weakness is. Guys are always underutized, underdeveloped (particularly WRs and RBs not named Gore). Their offensive "philosophy" is decades removed from the modern era of the game and our passing game in particular is weak.

For us to get back to the big game and win it all next year, it depends on Roman improving as a play caller, advancing in the playbook to evolve offensively, and Kap continuing to progress as a passer and his progressions. Tweaks and changes will have to be made and Harbaugh will have to step up. As much as I hate to say it, Carrol is the better coach right now and their offensive coaching staff is light years ahead of ours.

Changes and necessary adjustments must be made because this offense isn't good enough as it is, especially with all the talent we have.
Alex Mack is the answer! period hardcore old school center He'll make a big difference !
