While trying to decide on a topic to write about this week I decided to come up with this, experiment, shall we call it.

I want to know what YOU 49ers fans want to have discussed in this section, so I'm opening this forum up for you to ask the questions and I will choose 20 of them and give you my most honest opinion on them - Straight out of the Rabbit's Hole.

I'm open to discuss anything 49ers related this season from the team's 7-1 record, to individual players, to what's ahead this season. I might even be willing to discuss the 2012 draft if the right question comes around.

Leave your questions in the comments section or send them via twitter to DiegoDelBarco and/or 49erswebzone and make sure to use the hash tag #WZ20questions.

I will be making a new post with answers to 20 questions on Thursday night. I'm looking forward to your questions.
The opinions within this article are those of the writer and, while just as important, are not necessarily those of the site as a whole.

    Someone has probably already asked this question, but how good are the Niners really? Are they really as good as their record indicates? Are they good enought to hang with GB? Can they really be contenders without an elite QB? Does the lack of a legitimate passing game concern you like it does me?

    Do you find it exciting or a little dissappointing that the most remarkable pass plays this season involve Alex Smith getting the crap drilled out of him? And still by superhuman effort manage to collapse to the ground with a firm grasp on his three balls. Sensational or Deflating!?

    How do we achieve peace in the middle east? And what do think about paying your taxes with a postcard? I wish I could get a lobotomy with a postage stamp, doesn't that sound great?

    Due to an amazingly weak schedule, the 49ers are highly likely to go, at minimum,12-4 this year. But they could just as easily be a 7-9, 8-8, or 9-6 equivalent team, and you would not be able to tell the difference (in W-L column) with this schedule. There are three challenging games left in the schedule, Giants, Ravens, & Steelers. Do you agree the 49ers need to win at least two of three of these to be considered a NFC championship caliber team in the postseason?

    Is this 49ers defense good enough to carry the team through the playoffs? (a la 2000 Ravens or 2002 Buccaneers)

    If the 49er coaches are as good as everyone says, why can't they get Smith to lower his passes?? Seems like there should be some drill or some gameday simulation that could help him be more accurate?

    Do you believe the 49ers are a QB shy from being an "elite" team?

    Do you think alex will be back next year? Has coach Harbaugh shown he can win regardless of the qb back there? This offseason regardless of the season outcome will he go out and add more competitive qb depth both from the draft and free agency? or will he pull a singletary and just create a facade of competition to the media and fans

    Do we have Roman and Fangio locked up to long term contracts? They seem just as important to our success as Harbaugh is. How do teams like Pittsburgh keep Dick LeBeau as their coordinator without loosing him to a head coaching gig?

    To Mike. Dobbs did get in the game last week for one play. He was blown off the line and Helu gained 11 yards. Dobbs was then pulled and didn't get in for another play. My question. Once the Niners cinch the title we can expect CK to get his first start, maybe a couple. What happens if he pulls a Steve Young and averages 40 pts. a game? IMO, Harbaugh will be more likely to pull Alex if that occurs. Your opinion?

    If we lock up the payoffs (and/or the #2 seed) should we get Colin Kaepernick substantial playing time? Or do we keep Alex in all the time to continue to develop the offense around him to get ready for the postseason. For that matter should we try and get him in a few plays a game right now to mix things up and to get some tape on him for evaluation purposes?

    In your opinion how does our defense match up against Aaron Rodgers and the vaunted Packers aerial assault and do you think our defense can perform at this level at Lambeau in January?

    Do you think the 49ers wil be able to resign Dashon Goldson? I believe he is one of the most talented Free Safties in the league. I mean really what more would they want out of a safety he is fast, athletic, hits hard, and can cover. Plus the talent level of the guys that are behind him is a significant drop off.

    I was wondering about the rotations on the D-line, are we deep enough to rotate behind our starters??? Im always looking to see the snap count on the backups and Dobbs never gets in if at all!!. Im getting the feeling Vic doesnt have much trust in him. hope Im wrong but thats what I see.

    Do you think it would be more beneficial for the team to clinch the NFC West before thanksgiving or for them to clinch it afterwards? I personally think it might be better to clinch it afterwards so they don't become content just before their Thanksgiving game. What do you think??

    What are the chances we see a Niner game in the near future where they open the offense up? Maybe to quiet the critics in regards to the passing game?

    Let's say you are the GM... If alex keeps this consistent level of play for the rest of the season, would you resign him in the offseason? and if you do, for how long?

    With the exception of players such as Gore or Bowman, who very often are measured by their stats, which Niner do you think as of now deserves a spot on the NFC Pro Bowl roster not because of his stats, but simply because of the way he has played without regards to stats (e.g. Mike Iupati!?)?

    Looking towards the end of the schedule, 4 of our final 5 are against our weak-as-ever divisional opponents. Say we clinch the #2 seed and a bye, do you think this possible easy finish to the regular season could hurt our chances to advance in the playoffs? (Meaning, we hit the postseason soft?)

    Kendall Hunter is an explosive back and he has shown some great things when he is on the field. Why isn't he getting more playing time. Why do the niners continue to pound Gore like they do and not give him more rest. If we lose Gore completely to injury we will be hurting in the playoffs.

    Do you think that the 9ers D will tire towards the end of the season if the offense can't keep them off the field for a few games here an there?

Jimmy Garoppolo says 49ers played best game against Cardinals but still have 'a long way to go'

By Kirk Larrabee
Nov 21

As good as the San Francisco 49ers played against the Arizona Cardinals Monday night, there's still room for them to get better, according to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. It's hard to find much fault with how the 49ers played in their 38-10 shellacking of the Cardinals at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. After fighting off a somewhat slow start, the 49ers rolled over the Cardinals on offense while the defense held them scoreless in the second half, marking the third consecutive week they've reached that feat against an opponent. It was a performance many had been waiting for from the 49ers after an inconsistent start to the season, and Garoppolo had one of his best outings of the year along the way, throwing for 228 yards and four touchdowns on 20-of-29 passing. But even though

The San Francisco 49ers are in the home stretch, with only six games remaining. After Sunday's victory over the New Orleans Saints, you'd think 49ers fans have nothing to worry about. But a handful of injuries, and some tough upcoming opponents, have given fans plenty of reasons to fret. We opened up our 49ers mailbag to see what was on the troubled minds of fans. Let's take a peek inside. What do you think is holding back these 49ers on offense? All The tools are there but lack the explosion on plays. - Will D. The 49ers have been inconsistent on offense. A week after exploding against the Cardinals, the offense struggled against the Saints. One reason is that the New Orleans defense is good. In fact, the Saints probably have the



Kyle Shanahan impressed with Jimmy Garoppolo and 49ers' play in recent weeks

By David Bonilla
Nov 21

Kyle Shanahan was feeling good on Monday night. The head coach's San Francisco 49ers won their third consecutive game, with the latest being a 38-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in an international matchup in Mexico City. The 49ers are getting hot, and have become a favorite to make some noise down the stretch and in the NFC playoffs, assuming things continue to trend upward for the team. "I felt real good about the guys," Shanahan told reporters after the game. "[The players] had a great week of practice. They've really been gelling these last three weeks. I feel like it's gotten a little better each week, and it was nice to put a full game together today." Players are also feeling the momentum build up. "We're definately ready to



49ers Notebook: John Lynch on what Christian McCaffrey adds, surprising O-line play

By David Bonilla
Nov 26

The San Francisco 49ers gave up a lot for Christian McCaffrey, sending second-, third-, and fourth-round picks in the 2023 draft and a fifth-round pick in 2024 to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for the star running back. General manager John Lynch acknowledges it was a lot to give up. However, it just speaks to how much the 49ers respected McCaffrey and what he could do in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. Lynch and Shanahan already had great confidence in the offense's potential, but they knew that it could be something special with McCaffrey in the picture. "You're not going to make a move like that if you don't think you can compete with anyone in this league, if you don't think this could be the thing to push us over the top," Lynch told NBC Sports Bay
