Watching 49er game and seeing the confidence Eli has in going on 4th down 3 times, with 2 successes, in the 4th quarter brings up a natural comparison to other recent giant groups. Two big surprises. Ballard seems to be a bigger more durable replacement for Boss with unexpectedly good hand skills. The cruz, what a find, has become a favorite. Who is Steve Smith?
MM has become smarter and more smooth, a young Toomer. Nicks is a number one who just has to stay healthy. Ramses, Hixon and JJ awaiting their turn along with Bear. Working off season with the QB has helped. One major disappointment in Beckum. Just in time with the decline of the running game.
