I Refuse To Believe The 49Ers Are As Good As Their Record...

Football is a game that is won at the LOS and when you see their offensive line it is just full of studs (Joe Staley, Anthony Davis, and Mike Iupati are all 1st rounders). There defensive line, likewise: Isaac Sopoaga is a beat upfront, as is Ray Macdonald out of Florida. Justin Smith is still playing at a high level and Aldon Smith brings a dominant pass rush that was missing in years past - Aldon Smith was a MONSTER Monday night, He simply owned Max Starks all night long - 3 sacks, should have had 4 if it weren't for a pentalty. He has 13 sacks so far his season, which is not only 49ers rookie record, but 4 sacks away from the team record. Patrick Willis, their all-pro LB wasn't even playing and other guys like Navarro Bowman and Raheim Moore played so well they didnt't skip a beat.

Their secondary is also extremely underrated. Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner are second only to Polamalu/Clark as far as safety tandems go, and Carlos Rogers is playing his best ball in years. Terrel Brown, their weakest link has stepped up and has played really well lately. He did a phenominal job against Mike Wallace, and even came away with an INT.

And they STILL haven't allowed a rushing TD all season, really unbelievable when you think about it, This team may not be the best team in the league right now, but they are certainly the deepest IMO. 49ers GM Trent Baalke has done a spectaular job in rebuilding this team, and it goes without saying that Jim Harbough has done wonders for QB Alex Smith and the entire organization really.

great great post

anyone who doubts the 49ers just this read this ^^^

    • After Pinter nearly ended Matt Ryan's life in 4 games, Smith was moved to RG for the 2022 Denver game - the 12-9 game for the ages.  Ballard pulled the plug on Smith at RG five minutes later, so I wouldn't expect it again.  
    • It wasn't a great season (great would be making the Finals) but I would classify it as a very good one, one reason why is, we overachieved. Making the Final 4 is a very good accomplishment and winning 47 games to stay out of the playin scenario is pretty respectable. We also won a Game 7 at NY in the Semi's which is almost impossible to do no matter who they have out there. They did have Brunson and Divincenzo for that Game 7 for most of the game. Brunson had to leave because of a broken hand late in the 3rd but by then we were up big anyway.    Even though we got swept by Boston, it didn't even really feel like a sweep. We lost both home games without Haliburton by only 3 points and gave away Game 1 losing in OT and that was at Boston. They really only kicked our butt in Game 2.    All in all, we just lost to a slightly better team who has been in the Conference Finals for many years - so their experience in closing games was better.    We need to add 1 more piece and it needs to be someone that just focuses on being physical in the paint defensively and wants to Rebound more than anything. Turner is more of a stretch Center that has a score first mentality, he is a great shot blocker but isn't physical enough when guys come into the paint.   There are 5 levels to basketball: Level 1 - Just making the Playoffs (above average) Level 2 - Winning a Playoff series (good) Level 3 - Winning 2 Playoff series = making the Conference Finals (very good) Level 4 - Winning 3 Playoff series = Winning the Conference (great) Level 5 - Being a World Champion   -We reached Level 3   I won't be a sore loser so I will congratulate @NFLUpand the other Boston fans for winning the East. They are just better as of now.
    • I'm sorry I misstated that it was Saturday that moved him back, IIRC Saturday had stated that Smith would be staying at RT and they were moving Raimann to LT and that's what I am remembering. Still never stated it was a long term plan, I even said it was Reich grasping at straws to try and fix the O-line.   It's the simple argument of someone stating that something never happened, when it had happened. Now you're somehow trying to argue that while trying to put words in my mouth. I never said it was a long term thing. YOU and I are on the same page and the same opinion that he should remain a RT and shouldn't be changed to RG
    • Smith had a career year when he was in there last year on a bad knee.
    • You also said it was Saturday who undid it.  It wasn’t it was Reich the very next game.  That’s what I am pushing back against that this was some long term plan the Colts had.  I think most see the difference in a one game throw something at the wall to see if it sticks because you are desperate vs a long term plan that you are presenting it as.     Dungy also moved Saturday to guard for a playoff game vs the Broncos in 03 does that mean the Colts had thoughts about moving Saturday to guard or was it a one game thing?   It’s also moot now as that coach and oline coach are no longer here and Shane has made it clear since he got here he has no plans of moving Smith to right guard.
