The battle cry now is to not have a losing record. 9-7 is likely out, so 8-8 appears to be the goal. Problem is, both San Diego and AZ are playing for something, and we aren’t. So we’ll end up 7-9.
Might as well get the draft position at this point. Likely 13-16 is where we’ll end up. Near as I can tell at this point we have 9 draft picks coming up, so we can certainly help ourselves out.
Problem is, we likely have a lot of coaches who will be leaving. Baalke hasn’t shown a knack for drafting WRs, or even developing them. This may be an issue with the offense we currently run, but who knows? This team faced 5 years worth of line injuries and 10 years of front office bullshit. And that was before the season started.
Weird to be on the outside looking in, but hey, had we given Harbaugh his extension before the season started, we’d be tied to this crap-ass offense for another 5 years. I have more faith in Kaepernick getting better with a different offense than I do this offense getting better with the current cash of characters.
