Niners Nation DOOM Index, Week 1: 49ers lost to the Panthers edition

The 49ers are winless. Winless! How doomed are they?

The San Francisco 49ers were not terrible against the Carolina Panthers — at least at the beginning of the game. A little later, though, things were ugly. The defense looked like it gave up and the offensive line gave Brian Hoyer no time to get anything done.

They are doomed, though that’s nothing new. They’ve been doomed forever, as I’ve told you all many times. We’re doomed too, but probably, at this point, not as doomed as the 49ers.

There’s a spectrum though, and we need to find out where the 49ers are on it. Before the 49ers took the field in the regular season, it seems like folks were a little more optimistic than I am ... which is to say, fairly middling in their measure of doomness. You can see past results of the Doom Index right here.

I’m not going to go in depth on what went wrong — beyond Zane Beadles — so we’re just going to get to the doomed part. I’m personally a fan of the play-calling and the play design from the game against the Panthers. I think it looked good, and would have been effective if the offensive line improved.

So, how doomed are the 49ers after one loss? 0-16? 15-1?
