We have reached the halfway point of the NFL season, what have we learned about our 49ers so far? I'm pretty sure there's plenty I'm forgetting but here's my list..
-The return of Kendall Hunter. This the guy I anticipated the most in the off-season, and it looks like he's picking up where he left off!
-Special Teams, clearly a stronger unit this year. We no longer miss Blake Costanzo!
-The Pistol Formation is sustainable!
-The emergence of Tramaine Brock
-The quarterback who shall not be named gives us KC's 2nd rounder!
-Kyle Williams as bad as webzone advertised.
-Aj Jenkins who would've thought over the summer he'd be playing for KC.
-Lamichael James, he has not and probably will never turn out to be like Darren Sproles (esp in SF).
-Nnamdi Asomugha, going into the season if you were to tell me Brock would take his job, I would've thought you were crazy!
-Colt McCoy, I predicted him to be a young Alex Smith, but I guess not.
-Aldon Smith, the most bone headed story of the season. Nuff said.
-Seahawks with division lead. Still not happy about getting dominated two times in a row. I thought we would've put up a better effort in Seattle this year, but we got smashed again. I hope those losses don't affect the team's psyche thinking they just cannot win in Seattle. Sooner or later the 49ers will have to go in there and exorcise the demon!
That's pretty much all I have. Meanwhile enjoy the bye week people. It's going to be one hell of a ride in the second half of the year. Everything seems to be falling into place for the 49ers. We are getting healthier, winning games on all 3 phases, 1 game behind the Seahawks (with a rematch in Candlestick!), Kaepernick is balling, more weapons returning, and the best running game in football. Put all that together and you have a Superbowl formula!
Quest for the Sixth continues.
