If we make it back to the Superbowl, it will be absolutely remarkable.
Didn't hurt the 49ers albeit they weren't blown out. I think it works 2 ways. We lost a game we were expected to win in 2012/13 and came back firing last season. I honestly think we'll do the same again next season. Look at what we did to Baltimore in that first game this year.

the difference is that Baltimore team wasn't all that great to begin with and then lost about ten players in the offseason. the seahawks? not so much.

I like Jennings and Andre Brown. I'm not very sure we'll get a shot at Jennings as Dmac is probably done there and even the raiders aren't dumb enough to let Jennings walk.

Brown would be a cheap sign, if he wants to come back here. he has game breaker speed and definitely looks like he could be a good RB in his past appearances.

I think the bigger issue to be addressed in the running game is scheme and commitment. I know it works for mannings style (an ankle injury) but playing 98% of the time out of the Shotgun(mostly/pistol) really limits options.

I would personally like to see our 2 TE Set evolved and built up to our primary look.

I really like Ben Tate and think he is a #1 if he is on any team other than behind Foster or AP.

That being said, I really like the way Moreno played this year. A little O-line tweaking could really help open up his game.

Montee Ball is the fourth-most consistent RB as measured by his Success Rate or Running Back Batting Average.
Moreno is 14th.

The basic formula:
  • In general, a play counts as a "hit" if it gains 40% of yards on first down, 60% of yards on second down, and 100% of yards on third down.
  • If the team is behind by more than a touchdown in the fourth quarter, the benchmarks switch to 50%/65%/100%.
  • If the team is ahead by any amount in the fourth quarter, the benchmarks switch to 30%/50%/100%.
The 2237 word explanation: http://www.footballoutsiders.com/sta...k-success-rate

We need a home run threat to go with Ball.

I'd say all of them because all the other RB's has had to run against 7-8 man boxes. Sorry I love ya, but life is just easier playing for Manning.
