Basically two weeks until the start of training camp and the 49er Faithful are anticipating a vast improvement over 2016. What can they expect in the first year of the Lynch/Shanahan era. They can expect a lot of new faces, fierce competition to make and stay on the 53 man roster and a culture that demands responsibility, accountability and teamwork up-and down the organization.
They can also expect that once the season starts there will be new offensive and defensive schemes that will better fit the personnel on the roster. But will the 49ers win more than two games? Its hard to know but they will have better chance than they have had the last two year. Also it seems there is a significant upgrade at some of the offensive skilled positions most notably the wide receiver and running back positions with the addition of both free agents and rookie draft choices.
Another key factor is there is stability in the front office and head coach positions and it clear the GM and head coach are on the same page and working together for the to build a winning culture. Organizational stability is huge in terms of continuity to the organization, players and fans as well as for the recruiting of free agents to the 49ers. Its clear throughout the league that these two men have the respect amongst players due to their background and vision for building a winning organization.
