San Francisco 49ers: 7 Weaknesses the Franchise Must Fix Before a Super Bowl Run

The San Francisco 49ers are the darlings of the NFL.

Discussions in the preseason were focused on how many games the team would win in the regular season. Now the dialogue has shifted, and some are predicting the 49ers to win more postseason games than they originally thought they would win in the regular season.  

Improvements by many key players, offseason acquisitions and of course Jim Harbaugh are among the many reasons the 49ers have made such sizable leaps this year. These improvements have led to a change in expectations for many 49er fans.

At first, the 2011 season was supposed to separate the wheat from the chaff, it was supposed to show which 49ers would stick around for the real turnaround in 2012, but now expectations have changed. The 49ers themselves have shown a real ability to win a Super Bowl.  

The transformation from NFL doormats to Super Bowl champions is not complete. There are still areas in which the team can improve upon if they wish to take the Lombardi trophy from its homeland in Green Bay back to its rightful resting spot in the city by the bay.
