Will the Real 49ers Ever Be Found?
Read Full Article »
The 49ers have officially become an NFL team of mystery.
Some teams are slumping, some are surging and clicking, some are rebuilding, some are in clueless disarray. Some are waxing, some are waning, some are obviously bound for glory, others clearly headed to oblivion.
Raise your hand if you have any idea where the 49ers belong in that mess, where they're going and how soon they might get there, after Thursday night's 10-6 win over the visiting and bungling Chicago Bears.
Are the 49ers the best 4-5 team in the league or just one lucky game against the inept Bears away from being 3-6 and coming to a bad boil? Are they 1-0 after the first game of the rest of their season, or just a few crazy Jay Cutler chucks away from exploding?
Does Mike Singletary have his lads' heads and hearts, or has he exceeded the rah-rah cap and it's just NFL football from here on in?
