Amazing it keeps coming up from a fan base who watched 16 straight years of winning 10 games or more.

Niners will be fine.

Go niners!


While I mainly agree with you those teams had elite QBs. Kap is not elite.

Flacco is elite? Eli Manning is elite?

We went deep once into double coverage at the complete wrong time. Huge turnovers, no run game(all season). Questionable play calling, playing so damn conservative with no risk(like Carol 4th and 7).
-How can we not get the ball to the best TE in the NFL(if not top 2)?
-When's the last time a team made it to 4 straight NFCC's

I hate being a debbie downer but I can't control my thoughts. Sure this will go away after I've gotten over this loss though.

-True, but we do sometimes lack a pass rush
-Seattle shut down Graham. With those safeties, they can do that
-Philly 01-04

Where's Fangio going? His name may have come up, but I don't believe he's taking a head coaching job anywhere. All we can do on offense is hope there is a change in philosophy and that for Colin Kaepernick instead of hitting the gym, he hits the classroom.



This, Fangio received interest from Washington when everyone knew they were going to hire an offensive minded coach anyways. He didn't have a single interview. Roman only received one interview. I'm more worried about the 49ers losing Tomsula than either of those two guys.
I'm very proud of this 13-14 team. So much talk in the last offseason was about the curse of the SB loser. The 49ers went into the toughest place to play in the NFL and made it a close game. When two good teams play, it always comes down to a play here and there. The 49ers couldn't get that big play when it mattered in the 4th quarter. Being one of the final four teams is always a nice accomplishment.

Uhm neither of those teams have had sustained success like the two teams that were listed(colts with peyton and patriots with tom).

We should be contending for the rest of the decade. After that Kap will be in his early 30's and should still be playing at a high level.

I thought the schedule was brutal. AFC West had 3 playoff teams. NFC South is Carolina, New Orleans (dome), Tampa Bay and Atlanta. Lovie will make Tampa Bay a top 12 defense and Atlanta will be viable. That leaves the NFC East...ok, i'm with you there but it's still 2 cross country flights.

He may not be elite YET Bottom line is he's still developing into a true QB. Yet he's taking us further than any QB in recent time. Sure you can say that the "D" has a lot to do with it. The way I see it, as long as our defense stays put, it will buy Kap some time to become elite.
If they continue to draft well and stay a year ahead (drafting guys like Lattimore and Carradine to replace guys like Gore and Justin Smith 1-2 years later) and if Kaepernick continues to develop, their window is going to last years a la the Patriots. The good thing about it is that Kaepernick is smart and has the work ethic, determination, and physical ability to become an elite passer. If it doesn't happen, it won't be for lack of effort. Elite coach is huge here as well.

Still, not getting a Super Bowl out of this current three year run hurts. They were definitely the best team in the NFL in 2012 and 2013, maybe 2011 as well. I can understand 2011 as the team had no passing game. The 2012 team struggled on defense after Justin Smith got hurt and had mediocre special teams. This year's team, IMO, was the best team out of the 3 but also had the toughest path to the Super Bowl. Karma will come around. At some point this team will have an average year, sneak into the playoffs, and win the Super Bowl despite other teams being better.

we're not playing in nfc south next year. only new orleans.
New England put the blue print out there how to sustain winning seasons. If you don't need players, don't pick them. Trade the pick. We also learned, COACHING MATTERS!!!! Have good coordinators. New England's next man up is always viable. They've had the luxury in Tom Terrific. Thats the xfactor. Not only is he a top 3 QB in the last 30 years, he is not breaking the bank with his contract. He gets it.

Trent has done all of the above. Coaches, coordinators, mortgaged our future using picks. We will have +/- 12 picks in every draft for the foreseeable future. After we address the obvious needs created thru cap casualties, we will trade more picks. What are we going to do? Draft a running back? Not a chance! Trade it! The Eric Reid situation is case in point. Veteran Safety in Whitner, cap casualty in Dashon, replace with mid-1st stud, whitner embraces roll as mentor. Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat.

Kap, like Brady, is our xfactor. What is he going to cost? 18M is insane in my mind and will break us. Long story short? In Trent, I trust.
I just want Roman fired. Point. Blank.

Thx, was going off the top of my head from when i checked it. Saints being 2nd place, us being 2nd place...thats one of the 2 "flex" games. And that's the toughest draw of the 2nd placers...not to mention in the dome.
Still a tough schedule, IMO

Absolutely proud of every guy on this team! I'm tired of reading this non sense about "our window closing" as long as we have Harbaugh we will always be contenders. We are taking it next year. We have a plethora of draft picks to
