San Francisco 49ers Strive To Be Great

Jerry HuertaContributor IMay 8, 2009

As another season is fast approaching, a lot of fans are anxious to see how their teams are going to do next year. This leads to the perdictions for next year for the 49ers.

A lot of this years expectations ride on consistent play at the quarterback position, whoever wins the quarterback competition has to be consistent for the 49ers to succeed.

Also, another contribution that needs to happen for the 49ers to succeed next year is a better pass rush.

Last year their sack total was near the lower end for league totals and this affected the secondary because theyguarded their receivers for a long period of time. If the 49ers have contributions from both of these areas they will succeed and they will end with a record of 10-6.

Injuries and inconsistent play by the quarterback position could make them fall short of their expectations. Succeeding this year means that the 49erswill have sure up two problems areas that haven't been sured up since they last went to the playoffs in 2002.

If they make all these improvements then 49er fans will be cheering for their team in the playoffs.
