It’s a big year for the San Francisco 49ers as after three consecutive seasons of disappointment, the expectation is there for them to now take the next step.
Having been to three straight NFC title games, Coach Jim Harbaugh knows that his team must now continue their development and progression otherwise they risk being tagged as habitual nearly-rans.
However, the build-up to the new season has been far from ideal with Aldon Smith being suspended for nine games, NaVorro Bowman is expected to miss a significant portion of the regular season while Ray McDonald was arrested last Sunday to ensure that the 49ers led the league with 10 arrests since 2012.
Harbaugh insisted that he will do everything to ensure that a pattern isn’t emerging at the franchise, and it begins on Sunday when he will hope to have minds fully focused on the task in hand to get off to a winning start.
San Francisco have won at least 11 games in each of the last three seasons, while their opponents, the Cowboys, have gone 8-8 in three straight seasons.
The difference in quality and pedigree is there for all to see, and it will likely be the ruthlessness of the Niners offense coupled with Dallas’ porous defense which will make the biggest difference.
Meanwhile, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo enters his 11th season in the league following back surgery and as a result, owner Jerry Jones didn’t sound too enthused earlier this week when discussing his team’s chances this coming campaign.
However, if Romo can find an early link with star receiver Dez Bryant and the Cowboys find a way of shutting down Colin Kaepernick, it remains to be seen whether or not a shock is on the cards in Texas on Sunday.
