I'm still proud of our team......

I don't believe our window is closing. I just believe that we missed on opportunities to win the SB. We invest a lot of emotion in this team throughout the entire season, hoping to have something to show for it in the end. But we keep coming up short. I am worried that Harbaugh will be the next Andy Reid; that he will have sustained success year after year, but will never win the big one. I hope it's not the case, but after three years of this with the same results, I'm not sure when it'll happen.

I think Kap will become a really good QB, but we're going to need to fill other holes in our team. Most importantly we absolutely need a legitimate wide receiver that can stretch the field. We still don't have anyone like that. We can't continue to rely on throwing the ball into tight coverage because we have receivers like Boldin and Crabtree that can go up and get it. It eventually leads to what happened at the end of the game yesterday. We need to be able to spread defenses and make more explosive plays on offense.

Also, our run game was not very good this year, especially at the end of the season. I don't know if the Offensive Line just wasn't playing well or whether Frank Gore is simply not the same player. Hopefully Lattimore will prove to be a solid replacement for Gore and we go back to being an elite run offense. But we may need to look at drafting O Linemen also, especially if we can't keep Iupati.

Finally, while they may have looked decent at times this year, I think we definitely need DB help. Yesterday our CBs did not have a very good game. I was flipping my lid when more than once on 3rd and 8 the Seahawks were easily getting 9 yards on a slant because our CBs were playing 10 yards off. These are all areas of need which will continue to keep us in the running. But in the end, we HAVE to be able to win the big one, which has not yet happened in the Harbaugh era.
Kap just has to be bigger than he was this game. I'd rather we had a game manager in the 4th qtr than whatever the hell he was trying to do.
The whole window closing is such BS. As long as we have Harbaugh we will be right there

We lost to a good team but the best team lost. Still my team though.
You make your own opportunities, year after year. My money is on Baalke.

Still a tough schedule, IMO

people do this every year where they over analyze a schedule. we dont know who will be good, who will be ravaged with injuries or how a given team will be playing when we get to play them. teams that look s**tty right now will rise up and have good seasons, and teams penciled in as playoff teams right now will fall off.
Niners!!

We have a ten year window, if we play this thing right. Niner fans need to get out of their minds visions of Dynasties of the past. We need now to beat the best team in the league, which I hate to say is Seattle. Revel in the opportunity, do not live in sorrow because of it.

I am not, and I know you are not, going to forget what Bowman did on that play. They may not get a ring for all the dudes who deserve one, but that dude just might get one with us.

Can we stop wishing Roman gone? I mean for f**k's sake, did you see us BEFORE he and the rest got here? This isn't your father's or grandfather's 49ers, this is the 49ers of your children. Joe Montana and Steve Young are statues in a museum to them. A clip of faded film. Jerry Rice? Some dude, with some other dude named Deion Sanders, that is picking the Pro Bowl teams. We must move on. This coming season it will be almost twenty years since our last Super Bowl win. Think about that. That is several generations of kids, a couple generations worth of college kids. Kids coming into college today are half my age (38), they have no modern memory of the old Niners. They only know THESE niners. They have heard the echoes, but that's all it is to them. Echoes.

I don't think you can win with a game manager in that situation. We needed to score a TD. I just think he made a bad decision. There was no reason to go to Crabtree in that situation. We had 30 seconds and 2 timeouts left. Take your time and get closer to the end zone. Unless Crabtree was wide open, I don't see why he chose to test Sherman there on blanket coverage.

I am not worried about Kap's future. I think he will be a great QB for the 49ers. I just don't want to keep coming up shirt year after year. We need to win number 6.
we have the worst luck as fans though. We should have 2 superbowls and going on to our third. It would be a shame if this team never gets over that hurdle

It wasn't just that throw, I'm also referring to the 3 turnovers. I have no doubt he'll get better, but all he had to do was NOT turn it over and we would have had a better shot at winning.

Yes that is true. But also, other than Kap, no one was really doing much on offense. I think this caused him to press a little which led to the turnovers. I just think that on that last drive we had a real shot at scoring a TD. Why is he taking such a risk on first down from the 19 when we still have 30 seconds and 2 timeouts to punch it in?
kaep has way too much trust in his arm, that dumb ass throw that got picked off by chancellor was as stupid as can be. he then did it again and luckily for him it was the much shorter thurmond and not chancellor there and it got completed to crabs. that brett favre mentality is the major reason favre has 1 ring and i dont want my qb with that f**k it just chucking it. learn to take what the d gives you and read defenses much better, on top of that spread the damn ball around. that 1 read s**t needs to end beginning the offseason, no reason to believe that vernon can be completely blanketed all game as well as patton
