To start I want to say that this is partly tongue in cheek poking fun at ourselves and partly to open up a discussion on a topic that hasn't seen much talk.
Since the season ended, it seems like all we have is faith and hope for the next one. That somehow we can solve the problems that plagued us all year so we can make it to the Super Bowl in 2012 and everything will be happy and fine and wonderful.
And that faith is getting spread out all over the team.
We have faith in Harbaugh to get this play-call by committee mess sorted out.
We have faith in Alex Smith to keep carrying the torch until we can do better at QB than "isn't that bad anymore".
We have faith that Vernon Davis will become a consistent nightmare for opposing defenses instead of being hot and cold.
We have faith that Michael Crabtree will develop in his 4th year to be somewhere close to reasonable expectations for a 1st round receiver.
We have faith that Trent Baalke will make the right moves to bring in young talent both in the draft and free agency.
We have faith that Anthony Davis still has potential to play tackle in this league.
We have faith that the defense and special teams can continue their dominant play and keep us competitive through a gauntlet of the leagues most explosive offenses next year.
All together we have enough faith to launch a crusade -- or at least a decent flame war or two.
But not one single person on Niners Nation has expressed any faith in Chilo Rachal.
It seems kind of odd to me that a power running team would give up so easily on a guard that can dominate in the running game like Chilo can. Now it's true that he's a revolving door when it comes to pass protection. He doesn't recognize his responsibilities when there is a blitz and that usually leads to a quick sack.
But everyone else gets a "wait until they have a full off-season under the new staff, miracles will be had by all" excuse -- why not Chilo?
