San Francisco 49ers: 4 Ways to Get Even Better in 2012

Improving upon a stellar 2011 season will be no easy task for the San Francisco 49ers.

In many ways, it was a year that may never be matched. Records were broken, and expectations were undeniably exceeded.

Best of all, the NFC West was won.

However, as any team that has failed to claim the Lombardi Trophy can attest, the season was not a complete success. At some point down the road costly errors were made, and the year was cut short.

Unfortunately for San Francisco, the 2011 season ended an overtime shy of Super Bowl XLVI. The 13-3 record, a league-high five first-team NFL All-Pros and being crowned as NFC West Champions were all reasons for hope by the bay. But in 2012, the 49ers are only interested in claiming one title: world champions.

So how does one go about completing this task?

Over the next five slides, you'll see how the 49ers can improve upon a spectacular year and finish the 2012 season with a celebration by the bay.
