After a promising showing last year I had high hopes for my 49ers this season. Sure, they won their opening game but just barely and it was U.G.L.Y. (you ain't got no alibi) Where was Vernon Davis? Gore wasn't spectacular either. If that's the level of their play for the entire season then they're looking at loses in the next 4 weeks (Rams, Steelers, Seahawks and Ravens), and, they'll likely end up with a 4-12 record (assuming wins against the Falcons, Cards and Browns.) Not good. Maybe they just need some more time to gel together. That's what I'm trying to convince myself.
