Hey folks, this is Fooch from Niners Nation. My 49ers were eliminated from the playoff race last week, but there is still plenty to work on as the team looks ahead to 2010. Alex Smith is likely to be the #1 QB next season, but closing out the season with 2 strong efforts would solidify that position.
The team is continuing to figure out its offensive identity and still has a ways to go before they know where they're at. Frank Gore has had big games, but he's been a bit inconsistent, thanks in no small part to a rather poor offensive line. On defense, the team plays very aggressive, which can lead to big plays for one team or the other.
Feel free to fire away with questions and I'll also get some of the other readers at Niners Nation to come over and provide info.
