49ers should look at us if they think squandering chances like this won't kill you
I think their 2 year run is more heart breaking compared to our 2 year run. The way these 2 post seasons ended for them last year with the special teams fumbles and this year the way the SB ended up for them ... you can't miss on these chances. I know it looks like they have a bright future with Kap, a great head coach just finishing his 2nd year, and a great defense ..... ummmm it doesn't always work out that way. Kap showed elite level stuff but teams didn't have as much time to prepare for him. Teams will adjust as to how they play him next year and you know Harbaugh will find new ways to use him but teams will also study what worked against him this year and apply it next.
Seattle looks like the real deal. They are loaded with a ton of young talent. Wilson looks every bit as good as RG3 and Seattle's defense is so young and explosive their ceiling looks higher than San Fran. I wouldn't be shocked if these 2 runs for San Fran are their peak. Its so tough to get back there and you just never know what happens with injuries and etc. You have to cash out on chances like this cause you never know when you get them again. I remember thinking after we lost to Pitt that we missed out on 2 chances but then I thought we could reload and improve in all areas, then look what happened. Not saying San Fran will run it to the ground like us but everything looked crisp and like we were run like an elite level franchise after those 2 years headed in the right direction. I see a lot of Rex in Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh's complaints about the ref situation doesn't look good. Ref's sucked no doubt but he hardly took any accountability on his preparation, his team's lack of focus early, and the constant missed assignments. Rex actually took more responsiblity after the Pitt loss than Harbuagh did. Harbaugh is a VERY emotional guy. High football IQ like Rex. Crazy success the first 2 years. 9ers org and fans shouldn't be too quick to assume they'll consistently be back in this position.
