Hi guys thought id post afew words about how i feel my season is going personally and i invite you all to do the same if you wish.
So far im pleased with how my team are playing - albeit there is plenty of room for improvement, especially on offence.
My season started off with an awful bit of bad luck - a season ending injury to a cornerstone of my defence, Aldon Smith. Then the season opener game against the Cowboys and my first ( and so far only ) Loss of the season. My pass rushing prayers were answered however when the Giants HC came to me with an offer i couldnt refuse. I was wary of letting Bowman leave as him and Willis had swallowed up anything attacking their area of the field, however im extremely pleased as Willis has just proved he can boss it all on his own! the one man wrecking crew has a team leading 36 tackles , 1 sack and 4 Interceptions through the first 8 games. I lost a great Linebacker in the trade but aqquired a true talent at rushing the QB - Jason Pierre Paul. Now i have my pass rush back ! afew other guys like Haralson have stepped it up with 8 sacks on the season and my Rookie DE Walker who has weighed in with a staggering 10 sacks already. The defence has contributed to afew scores along the way also which im pleased with.
Offensively i believe theirs definate need for improvement at the QB position. Kaepernick isnt a solid NFL QB. Ill certainly be looking to address this position through either the draft or FA. Crabtree is still producing good number and along side him Trayion Woodard is also impressing in his rookie season, leading the NFL rookie class this year with 512 yards off 27 receptions. The running game is proving effective with Gore and James - Gore is an absolute machine out of the backfield. Ive beening working in James more this season trying to give him afew more carries as Gore's injury hit my team hard last season. I want to keep both backs fresh and in the game for aslong as possible.
All in all happy with how my season is going. Last year my seaon came to a grinding halt when Frank Gore picked up and injury towards the tail end of the season. heres hoping ive gotten my bad luck with injuries to key players out the way early on and i can have a healty run for the rest of the season.
