http://en.wikipedia....co_49ers_season

The first half of it looks very similar to Carolina's 2012 season. Four losses by a field goal or less, started 1-6. The 6th loss being to Matt Moore and the Panthers - the first win for Carolina that season. To their defense, Alex Smith played pretty well that game but was injured and the inept David Carr replaced him. After that loss they to rebounded finish the season 6-10.

It was the second full year for Ron Rivera's former teammate Mike Singletary, who was fired after the season.

Their season gives me hope that Carolina can turn it around. Things couldn't have gotten any lower for the 49ers at that point during Week 7 after losing a close game to winless Carolina. They were a talented team with the wrong head coach so the losses piled up. The Panthers hung with the 5-1 Bears last week but lost a close one. Losing to good teams, however you do it, it's as bad as losing to winless ones. Good teams are good for a reason and usually that means they can pull out the close games - something the Panthers have yet to figure out.

What Carolina needs is a head coach that says "I can win with Cam". The 49ers had perennial under-acheiver Alex Smith, picked #1 overall in 2005 but never really put it together until he had a guy like Jim Harbaugh coaching him. With a QB guru head coach that can mentor Cam and get him on the straight and narrow, Carolina could easily go 13-3 in 2013, as the 49ers did in 2011.

Since I've been so negative lately I thought I post something positive. The 49ers turned it around after years of mediocrity...so can the Panthers.

But how much of their recent success can be attributed to Harbaugh?

I have said this before. It really just depends in who they hire as our next head coach
One things for sure though, we have talent.

I've noticed these parallels as well. Kudos for making a thread on it.

At some point, Singletary went full retard on Vernon Davis. It's more than interesting to see who is still there and who is gone. Does anyone else get the feeling that an ugly incident with this team is on the horizon? Something similar perhaps?

They went 6-10 in 2010? We went 6-10 last year. Now we'll have a worse record.
