The winner of that 'worst division in football' has won at least one playoff game in every season since 2003-04. Two of those teams reached the Super Bowl.

So why would it take a team with a great QB to challenge them? The Niners don't have a great QB and, as has been pointed out, one or two key losses from that defense can make a huge difference.

They had a great season, but there is little about that Niners team that makes me confident a dynasty is brewing.
The thing is no one will leave that defense. Another year under Harbaugh and another year getting better under Harbaugh for this team - they may not win 13 games next year but barring injuries should win the division and 10+ games in addition to being an improved football team IMO.
