Questions are: Did the 49ers really improve from last year? Did Alex Smith cement his place as the starting QB even as the offense got worse in 2009? Did Coach Singletary actually make a bad situation worse?
I believe that this team has improved from the ground up, and if you squint your eyes just enough you can see a championship contender taking shape. With that said these stats absolutely shock me!! I can't help but wonder did we really improve or do i just have the "feeling" we have improved because apparently the numbers are not there. Just wondering on what all my other NINER fans think about these rankings.
