Nope, I'm doubtful it happens again. The odds of the 49ers ending the year with 4 consecutive road games and the seahawks ending the year with 4 consecutive home games, that's not gonna happen again. Incredibly lucky circumstances for you guys. I'm not even gonna talk about the officiating since the game was again at your house. Your best chance was this year.
Anyways, we started the process of losing players due to salary cap last year . We've shed quite a few old starters from last year (Goldson, Walker, Moss, Ginn). We're gonna shred a few more old but overpaid starters this year as well (Rogers, Whitner, Goodwin). This actually is a positive step for the 49ers. These vets have been the weakest links. They will be replaced by much cheaper, younger, faster and probably better players.
As for you guys, let's see how you guys handle your turnover and cap situation. Free agency and the draft have not happened yet. Both of those events will help shape what happens next year. Although our goal was to win the superbowl this year, we also made alot of moves with the future in mind. Cost-cutting as well as shelving young but injured talent. Accumulating draft picks, creating cap space for the future. It all adds up to a brighter future for the 49ers.
