The Number ONE Goal in 2013...

  • Secure Home Field Advantage.

    Of course, do what we need to do in the draft and Free Agency, be prudent and swift with our decisions, rest our players, get healthy and utilize the OTA's, minicamps and Training Camp to get where we need to be with our timing and precision, but above all else, have ONE singular focus and that is to win our division and be the #1 seed in the NFC.

    I don't want to see a single game like Miami or Detroit in 2013. It's all business. Play every game like it's the playoffs.

    I have no doubt that we would all agree had the Falcons have to come out to Century Link yesterday to play us, we would be moving on to the NFC Championship.

    The goals of year's past are past. No longer do we simply want to have a winning season or make strides. This train has one stop scheduled and it's the Super Bowl.

    All Aboard!

  • Agreed. The problem with this season was not a certain play in the last game but losing at ariz, St.L, Maimi, Detroit. take care of 1 or more of those games (which were really close) and we get homefield throughout. But i think we needed the hard road this year to show us what we can do. I don't think we lose those games next year. Get it done in the regular season, get homefield, win SB!

  • Number 1 goal is to win the Superbowl, nothing less. Period, this team is deserving, this city is, this region is. That's it, I said so and so does everyone of us in our hearts and minds!

    RW has us in position to win at AZ but Baldwin and Braylon just couldn't hang on.

  • I'm in! I think this teams believes too. I'd be surprised if game 1 Wilson had the locker room won. Tavaris had his guys, and Flynn is no slouch either. He had to overcome a lot. After putting the team on his back I bet these guys feel bad they lost it for Russell. Lynch regrets his fumble, the OL is mad at themselves for the sacks, the defense for letting up. RW makes this team want to be better.

    We have been to the playoffs in 7 out of the last 10 years. And in the last 5 post-season ventures, we have won at least one game.

    We have had our sucky moments, but most of the league would give up a body part to change places with us.

  • Agree we absolutely need to win the division...but it won't be easy as SF will be very good next year. We need the #1 or #2 seed next year, so we have to win 12 games.

    8-0 at home
    4-4 on the road

    That should do it.

  • 1/2 game out of first place meant that we had to fly cross-country to DC, then cross-country to Atlanta, then (if we had won) down to SF. In the mean time, that 1/2 game meant that SF got to sit it out first round, then rest at home for two games. The difference between that 1/2 game (tiebreakers aside) was profound. Not that I'm bothered this year because we're 1-2 years ahead of schedule and those road games were valuable experiences in the long-run...but going forward, we have to have that 1/2 game.

  • Mitch Levy just had a piece on Wilson and the road. His words were that QB's that win on the road, are the ones playing at home in the playoffs.

  • Next year I expect 5-3 on the road and 8-0 at home, nothing less. (The only exception allowed is if we go 8-0 on the road and 7-1 at home, but my way seems easier.)

  • I think another goal is to try and duplicate the 2nd half of the season right out of the gate.

    Winning and playing well on the road was a huge boost to the confidence. If we can do that, then that goal of playing at home in the playoffs becomes a reality.

  • Number one goal should be to win a Super Bowl. Everything else is a secondary thought.

    The best part of this is that we are undefeated against the Kaep led Niners. Smith, for some reason always did just enough to beat us. As of right now, we own Kaep. Let's not lose sight of this little gem :)
