ESPN’s Theismann and Hoge pick Niners as suprise team for 2007

Mar 19, 2007 at 11:34 AM--


In a Q&A, Joe Theismann and Merril Hoge of ESPN.com feel that the San Francisco 49ers could be one of the surprise teams of 2007.

Theismann: They played good, hard football all season and upgraded some crucial spots. This team could contend for the division crown next season.

Hoge: San Francisco is my team because I love Frank Gore and I believe he's due for a big season. Alex Smith is only going to get better and the organization made a concerted effort to go out and get some excellent players on the defensive side of the ball.
