Sliding Doors...
 
For those that don't know, there's a film called Sliding Doors, where the leads life is played out based on 2 threads, one where she catches a train, one where she misses it. Seems we're virtually in that scenario now; beat Dallas follow path A, lose to Dallas, follow path B. For me:

A - win out, scrape into the playoffs, win 1st game then get stomped by the likes of GB or TB, end up with a very similar scenario to last spring; no established #1 QB, holes all over (predominantly OL and LB) with a weak draft position and no great prospects to plug them all via FA or the draft.

B - Lose 2 of 3 at least, out of playoffs, top 10 pick. Possibility of plugging at least 1 hole, especially if Corral is still available when we pick.

I find myself hoping for A, but knowing that B is more likely and probably the better path in the long run.

What's your A and B path?

Of your scenarios I think B is far more likely but I think we will go 2-1 over last three and still miss the playoffs.

But still likely a top 10 pick?

So, if our team was healthy there is no doubt we win that game last night. There is no doubt we win out. And there is nobody in the league who is a dominant force right now.
Point is that scenario A is going to be tough, but if we got in we could definitely make noise. If we were healthy.
We put ourselves in a huge hole starting slow and you cannot do that when injuries and now covid just get worse as the year goes on. We need San Fran, Saints, Minny to probably lose a game they shouldnít. We need to win out.
As for the draft, well whether we go 6-11 or 9-8 one of those quarterbacks will be there should we choose to go that route. So letís not give up on the season yet. A 9-8 record after the start to our season and the injuries would be nothing short of a miracle and could get us into the playoffs.

Yeah last night was our playoffs and we went in half manned. Its bull shit but unfortunately life ain't fair. We have way too many injuries also, WJ3 hurt his ankle it appeared , AG can barely run on that toe more than a series or 2. Collins is still hurt.. And our offense is straight ass. 8-9 At best

8-9 can easily be 9-8 and 9-8 can definitely get us in.

But we need players back. With our luck our covid list will go from 15 to 24 by Sunday. Lol

Im telling you all if we win out we are probably going to get in. We do not control our destiny, but there really isnít a single upset that has to happen as long as we win out. In other words we need help but it isnít crazy help.

GB
Rams
Dallas
Saints
Cards
Bucs
WFT

We're not beatin Dallas in Dallas. Philly is a push. Losing to the Giants would be embarrassing.

I don't know man. Yes it's possible, but it's very improbable. If the 49ers beat the Titans tomorrow night, that's probably a wrap.

My guess is NO wins out and SF wins at least two putting them both at 10-7

Yes. Tomorrow nights Titans game is about as important as any as far as our chances go besides our own. They do finish with the Rams who hopefully are playing for something. So yes San Fran needs to lose two of three. Tomorrowís game is huuuuge.

Path A: Get a franchise QB
Path B: There's no plan B
Path C: Snyder fucks shit up and we go with a vet retread.

Regardless of what happens the rest of the season, the goal needs to be getting the best QB available.

If you don't have a QB, you can't win in this league.
