We should not lose this game. The biggest thing for me will be the offense and passing game as usual. Alex Smith needs to show he can be a big time quarterback in the NFL and the offensive line needs to show they can give him the time to actually make a play. Watching New Orleans and Green Bay shoot out the other night really made me miss the offenses we use to have.
That being said, with everything that has happened in recent years I wouldn't be surprised if we not only lose, but we blow it big time and get killed at home by a terrible Seahawks team.

I'm so excited. The first 49ers game that I'll be able to watch LIVE thats not being shown in NY thanks to NFL ST on PS3. Yay!!!
And good news.....Harbaugh will be the one calling the plays into Smith's headset so unlike a year ago, Smith and company shouldnt be having any problems. I'm just hoping the OL can play well enough to give Smith time to play good. If Smith doesnt get time, we'll lose.
We really need the road graders to set the tone early to give Gore and Hunter room to operate. If we see third and long often it is going to be fugly and this will be the case until the line learns to play together. The tight ends/running backs learning their parts in pass pro is a big part of this as well. This short preseason is a killer for teams with full scale regime/system changes like ours.
Watch out for Brooks, Bowman and Willis to blow up this year with Fangio turning them loose.
