What a Season it Was!

Brock Purdy – 4,280 yards (#1 in 49ers history)
Christian McCaffrey – 2,023 scrimmage yards (1,459 rush / 564 rec)
Brandon Aiyuk – 1,317 rec yards
George Kittle – 1,020 rec yards
Deebo Samuel – 1,085 scrimmage yards (871 rec / 214 rush)

Shit, if Deebo has a big day, he could get 1,000 in the air as well.

Defensively the 49ers are 7th in yards/game.
– 15th in pass yards/game
– 3rd in rush yards/game
2nd in points/game given up

3rd in turnover diff at +10 (27 takes / 17 gives)
– 2nd in interceptions with 21
– 29th in fumble recoveries with 6

17th in INTs given up with 12
4th in fumbles given up with 5

These numbers will change a little with game 17, but what is cool is they did this in 16 games. And I suspect that Purdy will not play very much, Deebo won’t play that much, Kittle won’t play that much, and CMC and Williams won’t play at all. I’d rest Warner, Greenlaw, Ward, Bosa, Hargrave, and Young on defense as well. Give them a quarter and rest.

I hope that we don’t just throw everyone to the sidelines and give everyone 3 weeks off, but I don’t want Shanny to play the starters all game and go all-out for the last win.

For this team to roll, we need to get healthy. I’m not too worried about CMC, but AA needs to get back. Kinlaw has been not very good in his place, so we NEED AA to provide his inside presence to stop the run. We need Ambry Thomas and Ja’Ayir Brown back as well. This team, when healthy, is up there in the top 2. I think the seeds are actually right for the best teams in the conference.

Baltimore and us.

Truth be told, the path to Vegas looks much tougher for the Ravens than us. We’ve beaten the main contenders, and if the Vikings sneak in, I think we can take them.

Balt is gonna have a very tough and rejuvenated Joe fucking Flacco and the Browns to deal with (they split their 2 games), and a Buffalo team they haven’t played and who could get their shit together.
