who knows what real is? all you negative pessimistic 9er fans think the niners will go 4-12, nolan AND smith are both gone, and the team bolts to LA following the year...and then that is being realistic? why, cuz its negative as hell?
and then the 9er fans who are positive say 9-7, 10-6..and base this on the 2006 season which they seem to have improved upon talent wise...so whos being real and who isnt? you have two different views and probably none of them are being realistic
its probably somewhere in between the two..realistically, i doubt the niners will go 5-11, again. heck, even dennis erickson won 7 games in 1 season. u telling me nolan shouldnt be able to? so nolan and smith both get cut, and let me guess, lawson and willis both get hurt, too , right? and thats just being "real" no it aint its just bein negative and not in touch with reality, thats what it is. while i wouldnt agree with anyone who says the niners will go 12-4, i think its more realistic to say the niners will finish somewhere around 7-9 to 9-7. to me that is being realistic. last year i predicted 10-6 for SF, and was totally surprised by them winning half as many games. this year im being cautious and saying 8-8...although i wouldnt be surprised if its 1 game less or 1 game more. even 10-6 is within reach, and so is 6-10, you really never know, every1 has their own opinion but dont say being negative is being "real" cuz it isnt
