The team is as bad as ever. We need a Coach and a QB. No other thing will fix us.

Chan Gailey is a Saboteur.
Chris agree.. But the gm picked the coach and signed the qb. And he should be retired. There is a reason why buddy wasn't a gm before. Because their wasn't 91 yr old owners looking for a 70 yr old gm
2011 - Smart posters warned everyone else, Fitzpatrick was a waste of a year. Now we all know.
2012 - Smart posters warned everyone else another season of Gailey was a waste of a year. Now we all know
2013 - Smart posters are warning everyone else another year of brandon/nix is a waste of a year. Next year we will all know.
why is it so obvious that the team is so much better?
They hardly ever win a game. They lose two for every one win. How good can they be?
Yes I'm back. You're welcome.
The last 22 games shouldn't be looked at as one group. Just the opposite. If you want to look at groups of games, how about this crazy idea ... go season by season.
anywhere between 5 and 8 wins
We'll see if we're better. The defense is absolutely improved, the OL looked like it's been consistently improving till the injuries. We've still got Fitz, though. That's a major problem.
Nix did both, he signed the coach and signed the QB.
Signing the QB was a good move. No doubt about it. I certainly would have liked to see him draft somebody else also, but giving a QB who's around the 21st best QB in the league around the 19th highest contract in the league was a not a problem. The contract was arranged to make it easy to dump Fitz at any time. It wasn't a bad deal. Would've loved to see him draft a possible replacement, as I said, and that's a move I didn't like.
Picking the coach may or may not have been a good move. Still too early to say.
I know nobody likes to hear that. But no coach was going to win much this year with Fitz at QB and a defense confused through the first half of the season as they learned the new scheme.
And lots and lots more.
That is in fact the traditional blueprint for a rebuild, you draft your QB as your first draft pick, partly because you want to give him time to develop as the team does, partly because it takes QBs three years or so to develop generally, so by the time your team is hitting on all cylinders the QB will be ready to rock, and partly because if the team gradually improves, you'll have less and less of a shot at the top QB in the draft as the team goes from 4 wins to 6 wins to 7 or more.
This is the major problem I have with how they've built this team. The way I excuse it is the thought that they just didn't think the odds were good enough on guys like Kaepernick, Dalton, etc. But even so, I'd still like them to have taken the risk.
Disagree. That's a radical generalization. Plenty of good QBs have succeeded even when the rest of the team kinda sucked, most recently Andrew Luck, but there are constant examples. Those guys above, Couch and Clausen might have been destroyed by being thrown in the fire, but I get the feeling that they were never going to be very good. I agree on Carr, though. He was pounded into hamburger, but it took five years of it to destroy him. If they'd started building an OL the same year they drafted him, he might have really been a good one.
We were drafting tenth. There were 6 or 7 blue chip prospects. We had a great deal less ammunition than the Skins did. At our level it might have taken four or five firsts to make that trade. And when you offer that much you're essentially destroying the team's future for 6 or 7 years.
Our last three firsts - the ones in this GM's administration - were Dareus, Gilmore, and CJ. Would you give up them and one or two more players like them? I wouldn't.
Hey! Yeah, man. They're a little better. Since the bye week they've played better. However, the end results are the same, and that's a reflection of the head coach and the QB. No matter how they try spin it or twist it. This team should be in the playoffs this year. They blew 3 games that would've put them in the playoffs as of tonight. Games vs the Titans, Rams, and @ Patriots, if those are wins and they should've been wins, they'd be sitting pretty tonight. I just wonder how'd the season of went if they'd of handed the Patriots their 3rd straight loss, and took the division lead back in late September. Again, they blew it leading 21-7. I just see the head coach as the biggest problem right now. Fitzpatrick is who he is, and the coach tries to make him into some elite passer, and he's just not that.

Chan Gailey 12/26/2010 - Pass rush would of helped a couple of those. That guy (Tom Brady) stood back there forever and someone finally come open.
