I know what you mean.
I just don’t see how they can make that big of a jump.
The 2009 defense had some really good players on it.
We don’t have a Collins or Woodson, or Raji on our roster. Even Matthews was excellent at that time.
How can our huge holes be filled this off season?
Gute better shop and buy some A+ talent on defense. And HOPE that our WRs can make a HUGE leap next year.
I would have to disagree here.Nick Collins
I feel Savage is pretty damn good, no not Nick Collins great, but pretty damn good. I couldn't help notice he was someone who was consistently making tackles and hitting hard last night. Charles Woodson
Jaire Alexander is pretty good and should take a healthy jump. The skill is there, but he is not the LEADER that Woodson was.BJ Raji
I'll take Kenny Clark over BJ Raji every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
If our offense would have held ground, we could have made the 49ers pass more than 8 times and that's how you beat the 49ers. If we get two starters in this upcoming draft and some depth plugged in via free agents, we are going to impress people. I know it's hard to see it with how the 49ers smacked us around twice with the same approach; this team is closer than some are giving credit. And the team is is not down about this loss. Hell, Rodgers said the ending sucks, but he is excited because he's having fun again.
Remember, it's not how many times you fall down, it's whether you get back up. This team will get back up. Hell, this was Matt LaFleur's first year as a coach and he got 13 wins in the regular season which is the same we had the two seasons prior, combined.
