Unfortunately this season has not gone the way we had hoped. We lost the running back we were counting on before the season even began and then we lost our franchise quarterback before he could fully grasp Shanahan’s offensive system. The receiver we were counting on to stretch the field has been banged up most of the time and our number two running back is too banged up to be at full strength even if he does play this week. Injuries have been a major excuse for the last four years and they are a legitimate excuse again this season. Life goes on and all we can do is try to make the best of it. Anyway, there seems to be a lot of interesting articles to read this morning.
We can start with Adam Schefter’s article about the 49ers being “absolutely on track” then skip down to read about Goodwin’s possible return. There is even an article about Kaepernick for those of you that have been going through withdrawals. Dante Whitner gives his two cents worth about Solomon Thomas and we even have an article about how pumped up Trent Taylor is to play in Green Bay.
Hang in there 49ers fans, we have no direction to go but up. I still believe in this team. I may not blindly follow and think Kyle Shanahan is beyond criticism but I still think he is eventually going to turn into a very seasoned head coach and we may possibly even be able to put a healthy team on the field by then. Patience is a virtue.
