What bothers you about the 49ers?

How the sports media dumbs down what's happening with the 49ers. It's not a balck-and-white picture, but for me everyone has a hand in this season's demise:

- missed tackles
- personnel moves
- drops
- injuries
- position coaching and development
- stubborn one-way approach to the rebuild
- too much loyalty to players vs production
- fundamentals in regression
- defensive alignment confusion
- Robert Saleh
- Jeff Hafley
- Strength and Conditioning and Medical Staff not figuring out why everyone is so brittle
- Joe Williams, Solly Thomas, and Witherspoon being flops (high and medium draft picks wasted)

Lynch not spending more of Jed's money in free agency
Shanny getting too cute on the goal line
Saleh for letting the defense be out of position
DJ Reed for fumbling every kickoff

Last years FA class was garbage compared to this one. It would have been foolish. Oh yeah, we also signed Jimmy, McKinnon, and Sherman last year so I dont know what youre complaining about there.

The DC is being set up to fail, IMO. Players are just terrible.

We let 5 games against inferior opponents last year blind us into fools gold. Now people think we are badly coached, lol.

for example, I definitely feel like DJ Reed is going to play much better at free safety this Sunday compared to Colbert. In the few snaps he has shown, it was not too bad.
I don't like the amount of injuries we sustain every year. I feel like its been like this since 2013. I think every year we will return to mean in that regard, yet it never happens. AT some point the medical staff needs to be analyzed.

Im mad at how young players on defense are being used. Whether its continuing to use solly on the edge. Pulling akhello as soon as he faltered and not allowing him to just struggle a bit and see if he can rebound. Using earl mitchell over dj jones. Forcing warner to call the defense as a rookie. Foster playing when he is clearly injured.

The ridiculous fan base. Wanting to make midseason trades when we have one win. Getting booty hurt when we don't trade with regional or divisional rivals. Rooting against your own players, just because he wasn't your pick or signing. Cherrypicking draft picks we should of drafted, especially when they weren't on that bandwagon. Calling players a bust one to two games into their . career. Generally whining about having not done anything in the offseason, and then not bringing up what you would have done differently.

I don't know what you guys are talking about? I haven't read one post advocating KS to be fired? If not KS, then who are you referring to? Should we have kept Sing, Tomsula or maybe you had an affinity for Erickson? The only guy this board couldn't wait to get rid of was Harbaugh after his 8-8 season.

I'm sorry but this is wrong by a million.

Harbaugh if anything was the one coach in recent years everyone wanted to stay. The vast majority of people wanted Tomsula gone after the first year because most didn't want him to begin with, and I'd say about 50-60% wanted Chip gone after the first year, too.

All wins. The next 5 games I would say atleast 4 more.

That's 8-3 or at worst 7-4

However this year we would've been just a wildcard most likely and lost in the playoffs. But with Jimmy G you never know. I'm really looking forward to next year I hope we're healthy. What really bothers me is playing some of these players out of position. Thomas, reed, even Moore at cb. Hope that works out but dam.

So a lot of us predicting we would have a winning record going into the bye week weren't too far off. Just one humongous injury away

It really is amazing how much losing your starting QB can destroy a team.

Texans last season went from 3-4 to 4-12 after the Watson injury. The Packers since 2013 without Rodgers are I want to say something like 5-12-1. Even the Dolphins have been looking lost on defense since they lost Tannehill. Something about losing your starting QB just ruins a team. It's more than just "They don't have the best guy running their offense." It's "We feel hopeless without our best guy running our offense."

The only exception is the 2017 Eagles, which people love bringing up over and over again. Stop it. The Eagles had the #1 seed locked up when Wentz got hurt and their front 7 was arguably the best in football last season. All the injuries I mentioned happened in the former half of the season. It's not even comparable.

I will give my TRUE REPORT CARD after next draft and free agency..
What bothers me the most is going from the Jerrick McKinnon hype train, to Raheem must-start Mostert.

I would argue it's the other way around. Shanahan is getting decent production from guys on offense while Saleh is being out-coached weekly. Guys are constantly lined up wrong, communication issues, playing guys out of position, playing AA.
What worries me? That the coaching staff is apparently willing to completely blow out Rueben Foster's shoulder in what is clearly a lost season

It's clear that on at least one play (and if there's one, there are probably more), he is only playing with one arm. Why? Why let him keep going out there? Did the old rotator cuff injury blow up again? Can you repair a blown rotator that's already been blown once before? Or are you just spinning your wheels? I really don't know enough about those injuries to be any kind of an expert.

But I can tell you that Foster is hurt. And I can also tell you that the coaches also allow him to play. With one arm. That bugs me about the 49ers. Badly.
What bothers me about the 49ers?
1. Too many freakin "nice" guys.
2. Too freakin soft, with a T. Not physical with an F.
3. Fan base is the worse in football. Period.
Example....
2002 Wildcard game vs the Giants, all the bandwagon wine sippers abandoned ship at halftime and missed one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history. And let's just say the Stick was half empty, yet 3 times as loud!! The true FAITHFUL were rewarded that day.
Red actually doesn't look good on me so instead of jerseys I wear grey 49er hoodies
There are rumors floating around that 49er fans are the most whiney fans in football. Also, a rumor floating around claims that the world is flat.
