49ers End Season with a Win

The 49ers did not really anything to play for except for pride and possibly to show their next head coach that if it is done right they can win and win big.

The 49ers came into the game minus Mike Singletary and from the opening minutes it showed. The team had a total different feel for it. It seemed like Tomsula came in let the coaches coach and the players play. Which is something Singletary never did.

With the 49ers win they’ll end up picking around No. 10 in the NFL Draft.

One thing that was different about this game that we haven’t seen when Singletary was head coach was the play of Alex Smith. He finished the game with solid numbers and there seemed to be a more relaxed Smith out there. Of course it was probably because there was really nothing to play for and perhaps more of auditioning for other teams.

In the end the team showed they have talent and can come together and win, now it is up to a new head coach to take that and keep it intact.

Hopefully Jim Harbaugh is watching and he sees this team has talent, it’s just they need someone to put their stamp on it. Basically a real head coach.


The Pundit of 49ersNews. I do what I can to supply the Niner fans with their fix.

    Yep this season is history, one good thing is that we can look forward to an exciting offseason. New coach, probably quarterbacks, GM…should be interesting.

  • LoneTexas49erFan

    Well, any chance we will kepp alex at least as backup, he deserves that, he's a good bono type,. he's game ot game perfect as backup role. Also if Balkes a done deal, which I think we need to go for Holmgren, if Balkes there, can we at least get Gruden. I am just not sold on Harbough, look how Erickson was, good in cvollege, bad in pros. Thew only way I'd want harborough is if we get Luck along with him, is that gonna happen like that, can somone tell me? I want to know othewise I wouldnt take the chance and go with Gruden, but if wer can get 2 for the price of one and Harbourouhg would convince luck to come to us. I still just feel Gruden is the best choice, he's got a bit of Sings passion and he'soffensive minded and would brng back the west coast, would Harborough bring back the wesdt coast, we need it back asap and things will open up. I say GRUDEN FOR HEAD COACH, he's prove and a perfefct fit!! I dont see why people dont want this over an unproven college coach in Harborough, if harborough sucks were bacjk to square one, and it will be another long depresssing season and more suckiness! We need Proven Gruden!!!!!

  • LoneTexas49erFan

    I just dont have a good feeling about Harborough, reminds me of Erickson, good college coach but will suick in the NFL. We need Gruden the Proven!!!!!! Make it happen Balke and JED! We definttily need to go after Mcnabb and Gruden once and for all in the offseason, ASAP, dont bring in unporoven, bringin proven winning QB's.

  • LoneTexas49erFan

    Keep alex as backup, he's good for that! He's put in the time, he will suck as starter anywhere else, too inconsistant, when he's good he's awesome, when he's the bad alex he the worst QB in the league, he has two side tohim, the jekyl and hyde of the league.

  • dav

    every year we win the last game and drop 6 spots in the draft….we will need them this year to trade up for Luck. Locker could drop way down.

  • LoneTexas49erFan

    So does anyone know if Alex will stay as our backup or if we will bring in somone like a Shaun Hill as #2, we need a strong #2 like Hill but the lions might lock Shaun up because he's been playing good for them unfortunayly, I never understood why we gave him up, he had so much promise, and he was better than what we had all together. We need to get Mcnabb though and make him our # 1 QB, Mcnabb or Vick. I'm not sure if Westbrook will be back, he always acts like he's not enjoying being herem havent seen him break a smile, he looks like he wants to move on but if I were him I would be excited if we get a Mcnabb, that would be awesome to see them reunite and I think it would spark there careers. We need GRuden MCnabb, or if we go the Harbough route which I think is not gonna work, get harborough Mcnabb as #1 QB, and bring in Hill or keep alex #2 QB and bring in luck as #3 so he can learn unless he shows promise and he can be promoted, but we need Mcnabb as insurance if we bring in a YOUNG qb, REMEMEBER ALEX IN 05. .

  • LoneTexas49erFan

    We need Mcnabb or Vick though as our #1 guy and a strong backup, Alex or Shaun Hill, and luck # 3 if we go harbough route, but I feel like we need Gruden hes is our best possibilty, our best chance of sucess quick and building a dynasty again fast!!! Gruden Knows the tradition and the legacy to withold here, Harborough does not, just naother Erickson clone all over again. What is it with the Yorks and these unproven NFL coaches from college to NFL coaches, you think they would learn there lesson when the Erickson Era, that crap with Donahue and Erickson got us in this big mess to begin with, do they want us to gop through more years of this crap. I'm starting to think they are trying to deminish the fan base and run this team into the ground. They need high qualty proven players and coaches ALA John Gruden .

  • Josh Meeker

    In a press conference Alex Smith was polite when asked about returning to the 49ers, but when he was speakign more privately with reporters he was asked if he might return, he said "Is that a serious question, um….no." So Alex is 100% done with us I think after making that statement, he will draw interests to be a good backup throughout the league though.

  • ninerfaithful

    Jim Harbaugh is out of the question my prediction is this niners promote baalke and niners hire Marty Mornhinweg and a trade is in the cards for Kevin Kolb ….

  • Subdoc9ers

    I think that Lone is a idiot. There is no way that we are going to get Vick. You need to quit rambling on about Gruden. Harbough is the best guy for the job. Did you watch that game yesterday. He runs a prostyle offense and knows how to develop a young QB. There is also NO WAY IN HELL that we will trade up and land Luck, and if we did there is NO WAY IN HELL that we would put him #3 on the depth chart.

    Marty Mornhinweg is not that bad of a plan B. I think that he could fit in here, and I love the idea of trading for Kolb. Now I also that Palmer has a lot of football left in him and we should not over look him

    • LoneTexas49erFan

      We want the suckage to end once and for all!!! We need Gruden and we need Mcnabb or Vick, whoever is available, they are free agents SubDic. We can get any player we want, e Eddie D went out and did this, and Jed says he's getting advice from the man, I'm sure he's not saying dont bring in any talent lol. I'm tired of little weasles like you on here year after year saying no chance, wont happem, crazy idea, and the same ole shit happens year after year when other teams are doiong it all the time. Go back to the Cowbilly blog and promote your real team punk! Read my comment below too SubDic.

    • LoneTexas49ersFan

      LOL And you want Marty Mornhinweg as plan B, How Bout Gruden being a plan B, Marty Mornhinweg sucked it up asa head coach and more than likely would again, horrible suggestion!!! Your bad suggestions keep coming, still laughing about Kalhb Riduclous, are you really a fan or a just a cowbilly fan posing on here. I dont totally hate Harbough, I just dont trust his transition to the NFL, I think its way too risky for us at thisa point in the game. We need provens in here, SubDic you can at least suggest Gruden or Fisher, that would increase your credability as a true fan, but the other suggestions would tear this team apart, and I’m sure you secretly want that, Kolb LOL, Mornhinweg LOL, with those people we would suck worse than when Sing was here. That would be like taking a step down from Sing and there would been no need of getting rid of him. We need winning provens in here like Gruden or Fisher plain and simple imposters!!!

  • LoneTexas49erFan

    No Doc or Dick, I think your an idiot! You need to quit rambling on about Harbough and go back to the Cowbilly or raider site were you belong. Sorry that I want progress and immediate results, while you want the same ole crap! Stanford did not impress me at all yesterday, the game was not an offensive explosion, it was Harboughs offense will suck more in the NFL. Do you remember Erickson SubDIC, maybe not you were probably shooting spitballs at your teacher, but anyhow if you remember Erickson was excellent in college and everyone back then said he's gonna be good, but he sucked and Harbough will follow in is footsteps, he's not proven and experienced in the NFL game which is different Subdic. I think he's overrated and Luck will take years to develope, he's good in college, but it will take some time for his game to translate in the NFL. It will be the Alex smith experiment all over again. We need Gruden weasle or Jeff Fisher, someone who is proven because most of us true fans on her excluding yourself want to win now, and not years later!

  • LoneTexas49erFan

    LOL, You want Kolb and not Mcnabb, Kolb is another Drunkinmiiller, LOL, your ideas keep gettting better, LOL You really want the best for this team SubDic, LOL We need Gruden and Mcnabb possibly vick its possible and I will keep promoting it because it will work!

  • LoneTexas49ersFan

    Hopefully we will get Gruden Plan A Fisher Plan B, Harborough plan C . Balke or Lombardi as GM. We need to bring in Mcnabb or Vick once and for all, they will be free agents and we have a chance, going to the highest bidder.

  • LoneTexas49ersFan

    Does anyone know what key players are staying or going? What do you think Josh, I hope we don’t get rid of much except for Alex and Westbrook since he doesnt want to be here, you can tell. I think the 49ers players need to realize who they are playing for, one of the most storied franchises in the NFL. We are going through a long slump like the 70′s, and it will pass, but we do need to get on the ball and we need that proven coach and proven QB ASAP!!

  • Subdoc9ers

    Lone first of all GO FUCK YOURSELF and learn how to spell simple words. Secondly, what the fuck did McNabb do this year other than suck. Really. he played worse that Alex did this year. There was a reason why Philly was ready to get read of him. Kolb is very good QB. He he played pretty damn good this year against us. Thirdly, don't question my fanhood. I was a Niner fan when you where still swimming around in your dads ball sack.

  • Subdoc9ers

    Now to talk about football. Anyone who knows anything about coaching including your favorite Jon Gruden has said over and over again that Harbrough is a NFL coach, and he would be a great NFL coach. He would be very successful with the Niners and it won't even be that difficult for him. In the game last night did you see the way he used his TEs and RBs. That is what we need. The Niners best offensive players are V. Davis and Gore. You can put a decent QB not a great QB back there and we will crush teams with his system. Also did you see the way he made adjustment from the 1st half to the 2nd. That is what was missing from the Niners all season. Someone who was able to see what was happening and adjust. Not wait to watch the film. Jim was a NFL QB for a long time and he knows what it takes to play in this league. So once again he is the best guy for the job.

  • Subdoc9ers

    Ok this is the last thing. Vick has been great this year. No question. He has learned to play QB not just be a runner. With all that being said there is no way. Let me repeat that, NO FUCKING WAY, that Philly lets him go anywhere. The Niners would have to give him the largest contract ever to make that happen, which then takes money away from signing our other young guys and possible other players that can help this team. We need money to sign people of Goldson, Lawson back on D. I think Baas did a great job this year and we need to keep him. If you throw all your eggs on the Vick basket then your hurting the team in other places. Dont get me wrong I would be the first person buying a number 7 jersey if it happened, but it don't make sense. We can easily get a guy like Kold for a draft pick, C. Palmer, or another FA QB that can do the job at a high level. I would even like to ger Gerard for J-vile. I think there is a lot of upside to him. Just a thought.

    • LoneTexas49erFan

      LOL, very funny about the balls, that made my day, that was hilarious, but maybe true.! You have a point about Vick, I was not considering the other players involved and yes it would be a steep contract, just wishful thinking, but I do think Mcnabb is possible and he would be an upgrade. First of all I hate houston and UH were Kolb is from, what a shithole, anyways I think Kolb would be a good backup, thats about it, bring him in for that. Subdoc sorry for being a prick, I'm just very fruestrated, we all have different views on here but we want the same thing, we want out team back to champiohsip form ASAP. .

      • LoneTexas49erFan

        Doc, I need to look at kolb on Youtube, I know he had a good game against us, but he seems like he is inconsistant much like alex and plus he's a cowbilly fan, grew up one, I feel sorry for him. anyhow let me watch some fottage and see. Doc, can yopu give any other proven QB's we might can aquire in ther offseason, proven other than Kolb. forgive my spelling, I'm typing fast.
