Killer instinct-I think 12-4 and an average of 12 wins since being hired shows they have the instinct to kill and win the game. Great teams are not always great they are only great when they have to be. I think some want a high scoring team- we all want that. However the offensive philosophy is not that. I do admit it gives gray hairs at times, but its better than what we had during the Nolan and Singletary years.
Plus lest you forget, one of the super bowl wins with Montana, came when we were 10-6. No killer instinct there you would think until the playoffs. Same can be said of when the Giants and Ravens when they won the SB. First thing first, get to the playoffs. Hopefully then they will unleash the beast like all good teams do that win SB.
Maybe and hopefully the niners will unveil some new wrinkle like they did with Kaep in last years playoff game. Still if you don't need to unveil all your secrets then don't, save some as you progress deeper into the playoffs.
