San Francisco has tried to upgrade where it could but for the most part, this group is looking more at internal improvement to take the next step. That means that Jimmy G has to be more comfortable leading the team with his arm. Sometimes they just didn’t let him do it.
This is a relatively young group and they appear to have drafted well.
The thing I like best is that they really know what they want to do and already have some difference makers in place on both sides of the ball. George Kittle looks like the best at his position
The NFC West is one of the toughest divisions in the NFL…maybe the toughest. San Francisco is a Super Bowl favourite, Seattle is always good and Arizona is improved.
That is going to make it though for a team that looks like it is heading in the wrong direction.
2020/21 NFL Team Predictions – San Francisco 49ers
- San Francisco 49ers 2021 Super Bowl Odds: +900
- 49ers 2020 Win Total NFL Odds: 10.5
- Trent Williams, OL
- Javon Kinlaw, DL
- Brandon Ayiuk, WR
The 49ers chose to replace longtime lineman Joe Staley with another veteran in Williams, trading for him from Washington. It keeps that line in a pretty good spot for running the ball the way they want to.
San Francisco used their two first-rounders to replace veterans that are not with the team. Javon Kinlaw is a physical freak who has amazing potential and a heartwarming backstory.
Ayiuk might not be a household name from his days at Arizona State but he is the kind of receiver who can make guys miss and could be very productive as a third option even in his rookie season.
- Joe Staley, OL
- DeForest Buckner, DL
- Emmanuel Sanders, WR
San Francisco emphasizes the defensive line so losing Buckner was though, he was third on the team in sacks and led the line in tackles. If Kinlaw is good he will make up for that loss.
They are well-positioned to cope with the others too.
2020 San Francisco 49ers Predictions: Off Season Analysis
They made it to the Super Bowl last year so obviously they are pretty close overall. The moves they made this offseason make them a little younger in some spots but still very dangerous.
San Francisco has to evolve to being in a spot where they trust their quarterback more. I like that they continue to give him new and exciting weapons to work with. He is still young in his career in terms of on field experience so if he makes a jump the team can be that much more dangerous.
Trading for Williams shows they are not messing around with Staley now retired. It would have been easy to draft someone for the spot or hope another player steps forward but they are committed to winning. It is nice to see.
The time to win is now for San Francisco. The division is strong but they are still at the top and with the young players they have they can be better than the team that won the NFC last season…on both sides of the ball. The one thing I would have liked to see was more investment in the secondary.
Richard Sherman is not getting any younger and his opposites were targeted last season.
2020 San Francisco 49ers Win Total Prediction
The NFC West is a really good division and the last place team, Arizona, gave the 49ers a really hard time last year. They are supposed to be improved so even though San Francisco is at the top of this group there are not going to be many gimmes in division play.
The other two divisions they play, the NFC East and AFC East offer plenty of chances to get some wins and maybe even some easy ones.
With New England not what it used to be San Francisco is the best team in this group and should be favoured in all of these games, no matter where they play them.

The final two opponents are Green Bay and New Orleans. These teams were contenders last season and it looks like they should be again. I am not sure either team is improved though and they do not have youth on their side as San Francisco does.
San Francisco should be able to at least split these two and finish really strong. The win total seems at odds with the best odds to capture the NFC. Take the value here.
