    It's certainly nice, but I keep reminding myself that I don't know if we're built to succeed with such little practice time, I still don't like our coaching staff, and we're in a division full of successful teams with a lot more experience under their belts. For as much praise as we're getting, it's kinda like "we might get a wild card," not "we might compete for the division."

    They have had an excellent off-season. That is a fact. Will they go from last to first? Probably not, but they will be more competitive and very enjoyable to watch.

    Don't forget Hopkins. He was always looked at as a great locker room guy on the Texans.

    If we had an average defense last season we could've beaten the 49ers twice? They lost Sanders their #1 WR, replaced him with a rookie. They lost Buckner, the anchor of the IDL & replaced him with a rookie (Kinlaw) the Rams lost Quite a bit & will not be 9-7 again. Seattle we split with in 2019 just like almost every yr. We added pieces to all areas of our defense that needed it imo, plus Hopkins on offense. I see not why we wouldn't have a chance to compete for the division.

    No, they are not always projected to do well nationally

    The rest of the division are multiple years into their systems, weren't picking in the top ten, and didn't add a player who desperately needs to get more time in his multiple roles.

    If you think we're on the same level of experience from coaching on down in the NFL compared to our opponents, I don't know what to tell ya.

    Let's not fight this. I want to be hopeful too. We have a bigger learning curve and unproven talent gap.

    You never know, but I think that HAVING KK as HC will help. And NOT HAVING OBJ will also help.

    We gave up 49 TDs during the regular season of our Super Bowl year.

    Last year's combination under a new DC and with a passel of rookies and castoffs gave up 52.

    Every reason to believe that we can improve on both those numbers.

    the 2018 49ers finished 4-12, got beat by the worst team in Cardinal Franchise history TWICE, and picked number 2. The next year they go to the SB.

    Different situations entirely. They were out their franchise QB. They lost their starting RB before the season. 4 of their losses were within one score. Even with Nick Mullens and CJ Beathard throwing the ball they had more passing yards than we did in 2019.

    Outside of the Browns and Seahawks games last year I did not see a good team. Kingsbury is still a losing head coach and Vance Joseph doesn't inspire confidence. Not really trying to rain on everyone's parade here, but for all of the good moves and cool pictures of Kliff's house, we need to actually put the product on the field. We haven't even had as much as a minicamp or OTA yet so I'm gonna reserve at least some doubt here.
