People say that stuff just because Gore and Justin (and Anquan and Goodwin) are getting up there in age.
The problem is that the assumption is that those players will not be replaced. The 49ers have been addressing those player departures in advance and will continue to do so with multiple draft picks.
As I said before, the 49ers have 6 picks in rounds 1-3. Seattle has 2. Seattle fans in particular said the 49ers 2012 draft was proof Baalke didn't know what he was doing. Really? How is 2010, 2011, and 2013 looking? How does Seattles 2013 look right now?
The window is just opening because the most important position on the field is inhabited by a 26 year old phenominal athete who will only improve under Harbaughs watch. People forget what Harbaugh did with Josh Johnson, Andrew Luck, and Alex Smith. Kap will improve. Despite the fact that he is a young player just learning how to play the position in this league he is STILL 4-2 in the playoffs, 3-1 on the road, and was one play from a SB title and one play from another shot at a title...and thats is in his only 2 chances. Does nobody remember Steve Young getting beat by Dallas over and over?
The 49ers are just fine.
