Golden Nuggets: Holiday Gift List

In the spirit of the holidays, I'm writing a gift list that I think most Niner fans would want to receive for the team heading into the offseason and 2015 season.

First on the list would be keeping Jim Harbaugh as coach of the team. What does getting the 49ers to 3 straight NFC title games and a Super Bowl in 3 of your 1st 4 seasons as coach get you? It gets you a front office that can't wait to get rid of you apparently. Most Niner fans want Jim to continue as coach after dealing with seasons before he arrived in the city. He made the team relevant once again and started the NFL's best new rivalry, even though after this season that may be gone. After this, the list may be different for most fans.

Second on the list would be to resign the heart and soul of the team, Frank Gore. There are some players that embody a franchise and Frank is that guy. I don't want to see him in any other uniform other than the red and gold one. Next would be to draft a great WR. This year's draft yielded Odell Beckham, Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans, and Kelvin Benjamin. All have shown flashes of star potential. The Niners need to draft one of those next year to help get this offense going. They have good WRs, but no great ones. After that, we want a rebound year from Kap. He needs to work with a QB coach. He needs to work on pocket presence and throwing mechanics. If you don't like Kap, sorry to tell you, but he's probably playing at least next year. Lastly, we want the injury bug to leave the team alone next season. The team doctors made their paychecks this season. It's surprising they had able bodies to play these games. The depth chart was pushed to the limit.

That's the list I think fans would want. What do you guys want?
