Unfortunately in a team sport, the gains of a few are almost negated when the team still loses. The 49ers were almost delusional at the beginning of the year thinking that they were going to make it to the playoffs. They talk about all the minimal gains they made this year (player development, some plays working, etc), but they still don't make the playoffs and finish in the hunt for Reggie Bush. Point is, no matter how good a player plays, it doesn't mean a damn thing if it doesn't translate into team wins.
Sure, I'd like to see each player have a great game and I'd be happy with small gains with a team that is rebuilding. hell, JRich had 30pts! But that still doesn't translate into a win. For a team supposedly heading to the playoffs, they can't concentrate on small gains anymore. They have to win. If they are in a lull, they'd better snap out of it quickly. Every game counts.
