After turning the corner in 2009 with an 8-8 record, many believe that San Francisco is ready to take the next step forward and win the NFC West in 2010. With Head Coach Mike Singletary in charge, this team has made steady improvement in his year and a half tenure by playing with much better consistency and discipline. How far this will take them this season remains to be seen.

One of the biggest question marks for the 49ers is with their starting quarterback; Alex Smith. Smith is entering his sixth season in the NFL, but he has yet to firmly establish himself as a legitimate starting QB in the NFL. Last season he started 10 games and completed 60.5 percent of his passes for 2,350 yards and 18 TD’s. He finished the 2009 season with a passer rating of 81.5, the highest in his career.

Smith is surrounded by a strong complement of skill position players such as RB Frank Gore, WR Michael Crabtree, and TE Vernon Davis. Gore led the team in rushing last year with 1,120 yards on 229 carries and scored 10 TD’s. As a rookie, Crabtree caught 48 passes for 625 yards and figures to play a much more prominent role in the offense this year. Davis led the team in receiving with 965 yards on 78 receptions. He also led the team in TD’s with 13.

Singletary’s biggest influence has been on the defensive side of the ball. San Francisco finished the season with 15th ranked defense in the league. The 49ers were ranked 21st against the pass, but sixth against the rush. To address this concern they drafted S Taylor Mays in the second round and signed 10 year veteran CB William James as a free agent from Detroit and six year veteran CB Karl Paymah from Minnesota.

One area where San Francisco has really improved is winning games within its division. Last season, the 49ers were 5-1 against the rest of the NFC West after going 3-3 in 2008. One area where they struggled was playing on the road as they went 2-6 as opposed to going 6-2 at home. Against the spread they were 10-4-2 overall; 5-2-1 both as a home and road team.

The odds makers have anointed San Francisco as the odds-on-favorite to win the NFC West based more on the current state of the other three teams in the division then the quality of its team. Leave it to Singletary to use this fact to get his team to go out and play with a chip on their shoulders this season. The 49ers will by no means run away with the West, but in the end they should win at least nine games which should be enough to end up on top.

2010 Prediction: 1st in the NFC West
Win Total: UNDER
