Your point about Manning was excellent. I will try readjust my outlook to be more positive, however I don't sense the same mojo with this team that I did last year, which could be all me, or it could be what I have gleamed from watching all the games. Only time will tell.
Per PFF, few random tidbits:
On passes of 20 yards or more, Colin Kaepernick has an Accuracy Percentage of 60.6%, which is the best in the league.
On passes that are in the air for 19 yards or less, Alex Smith has an Accuracy Percentage of 84.3%, which is the best in the NFL
In the last 5 games of the season, Michael Crabtree had 35 catches for 538 yards on 151 routes (Yards Per Route Run of 3.56). That would have been by far the best of any receiver in the past five years had he kept it up over the entire season.
Vernon Davis needs to see the ball more. He has the highest yards per target on the 49ers, yet is only targeted on 14.3% of his routes. This is a much lower rate than Randy Moss (24.0%), Mario Manningham (22.3%), and Michael Crabtree (23.9%).
Delanie Walker’s drop rate increased from 9.5% last season to 36.8% this season, the greatest decline among qualifying tight ends. He already has five more drops than he had last year.

I think close to 500 yards in two playoff games including the SB qualifies as a marked improvement in the offense.
What I didn't see coming was how quickly our defense became awful... It was like the defense shut it down at halftime of the Patriot game...
Then promptly gave up 31 to New England, 40+ to Seattle, 31 to GB, 24 to ATL by halftime, and 34 to Baltimore...
2009-2014. 3 World Series Championships, 2 Stanley Cup Championships, 2 NBA Championships, and a Super Bowl Appearance. 3 No-Hitters, 1 Perfect Game, 3 NFC Title Games, Jim Harbaugh, Bruce Bochy, Phil Jackson, Daryl Sutter.
2015-??? Lakers stink, Kings missed the playoffs, Giants are hanging in there, 49ers are staring at lean years ahead.
