Hey, football is a long way off, but the Giants are doing their part in creating more excitement around the upcoming season as they lose their way to the cellar and put themselves into the 49ers position a couple years ago.
Anyhow, Marc Sessler, a writer for NFL.com gives his take on the 49er season.
Needless to say, he’s not too insanely outlandish with his prediction but he is saying 6+ wins for the Red and Gold. There are a lot of folks who simply think we stay in the 10-12 loss range, but I beg to differ. We aren’t loaded with talent, but we do have some pieces that look intriguing, and we hit the draft pretty well. There are artill moves to be made as expensive pieces get cast aside for the recently drafted, so a few more bargains may come our way. Our QB situation should be better this year, and I think the run game improves dramatically.
The defense? Well, we weren’t as bad as we played, and we did get a lot of injuries, but our failings had a lot to do with inept coaching. The D line is in great shape, and we look pretty solid in the defensive backfield. LB is a concern, as is Reuben Foster’s health, but overall I think the defense will stand tall.
I’m still wavering around 7-9 to 8-8.
