    Complete the season. Complete the post-season. Complete a Super-Bowl win.

    And it rhymes with compete. Nice.

    I drink blue koolaid by the barrel, but I'm gagging on this. PLEASE don't use terms like "All or Nothing" and "Dynasty", especially at this point in the offseason! It's begging for jinx and ridicule and smells like drunk chili farts.

    No. The comment at the end of the OP is "we've completed a Dynasty", which is completely untrue.

    Getting ahead of yourself big time.

    In fairness, he did say that from the perspective of looking back five years from now. He wasn't saying it now.

  • Something I just thought of that got me excited.

    All this talk that we're complete and most of us are ready for the season to start.

    But the draft hasn't even happened yet. Do you guys realize that we could be adding another Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman, KJ Wright, Bobby Wagner type of player in just a couple weeks?

    The depth on this team is going to get even BETTER.

    I mean, I knew the draft was coming up, but just the thought that JS is going to draft at least 1 more great piece to this roster is so exciting.

  • The starting spots may all be more or less wrapped up. I do love the "draft for depth" scenario. Will there be a better player at the 2nd line of the depth chart at more positions than we currently have? Can we groom the "next man up" scenario? Can we draft a guy that unseats a starter? Yea! We CAN! Never before have I been more intrigued by our upcoming draft. Those players will be critical for special teams and depth behind crucial positions. We were relatively thin on OL, DL, LB, and WR last year - I'm hoping we can up the caliber of the depth chart as my major need going into the draft.

    Our backups already crushed other teams' backups in last year's preseason. The talent comparison wasn't even fair.

    This year it might be even worse.

    I would take our depth over any other teams'.

    I guess the key word was "relatively" thin because you're right, our backup players did appear to be bringing a lot more than on other teams. The backups were probably better than most teams' backups. No doubt the draft for depth and maybe pop a starter from the draft would be a great outcome!

  • We're right there, but SF's coaching staff and FO have proven they can improve their roster pretty well also.

    If they're as smart as the media says they are, they know that hoard of draft picks won't make the team. If I were the GM there, I'd packsage picks to move up and take impact players that will play NOW.

    SF can be a very scary team if they improve their weapons on the outside. As good as both defenses are, I can see shootouts if they get the right weapons.

  • I recall the AFC Central when the Steelers, Browns, and Bengals were all good, chess moves and pieces being used to shore up a weakness or exploit one from a division rival. It was pretty brutal in that division with all three of them taking a spot as a winner. No Dynasty since each of the other teams pushed every year and injuries could dictate who came out on top.

    Nobody wanted to play those teams, mostly because they would take out any anger and frusteration on you.

    Unfortunatly I see our division working in that direction. Taking the rose colored glasses off and setting the Kool Aide aside it will be a competition out of the gate. 49ers we know about, they are the current champions like it or not and are still capable even with the loses they had, they are signing guys they beleive in just as we are and have a bunch of draft choices to barter and trade with. Rams are going to be better, if you think they are going to fade to the back of the bus I think your not looking at what Fisher is doing there. He's getting younger, he's getting more physical, he's getting more aggressive, just like us and S.F. Arizona is a wild card, do I think they can push to the top? No, do I think they can provide some drama and upsets, absolutly. The legitimised the QB position, they lost their DC but still have most the players on defense that make people respect them, the could pull a Pete and go 7 & 9 easlily since nobody knows what they are doing yet.

    You have to win a few superbowls to be considered a dynasty.

    I see one person, going to the Superbowl 5 times and losing means you suck ass then and are a worthless piece of crap team with no right to be proud of making it one game short, yeah second place sucks, but how pumped would this board be to be there 5 times in like ten years or so.
