Ergo, if the 49ers are going to win a SuperBowl, their window will soon close.
Earlier today I heard Colin Cowherd say that the Bengals, 49ers and Seahawks have this year and next year to win a championship, because they all have a lot of young stars with cheap contracts, including franchise QBs, so something has to give by 2015: either they keep their QBs and suffer talent depletion at other positions, or they keep the team mostly intact but risk losing their QBs.
