  1. Hard to run a QB sneak or up the middle with an undersized C getting blown up. I'm glad he put on a little weight this off-season hopefully we will see an improvement in his power and ability to stand stout when run blocking and not get pushed around as bad by bigger defensive lineman.
  2. Belicheat says he evaluates 15 guys as 1st rd talents we got 2 of those top 15 guys in this draft how can you complain about that?
  3. I'm not sure why anyone would be complaining about this pick. Are we contenders this year? Would one of those other guys made us contenders this year? He will be back next year and was arguably the best CB in a great CB draft. At that point we should be getting a good to elite level CB. For when this team is ready to compete for a Superbowl in a couple years if we draft well and find a few ELITE talents like Jones could be.
  4. I don't really agree with that sometimes it takes a year or two for the players to gel together
  5. I like what we are putting together but I'm pumping the brakes also. We added a lot of new pieces on both offense and defense. I need to see them on the field before I'm going to say we have done anything more then improve on paper. Now I hope that we are much improved but with all the new additions you never know just how we will look until they are on the field together against a quality opponent.
  6. Clement is expendable every year a power runner slips in the draft or becomes a UDFA. He would have to really **** away with what I saw from him on the field to keep him on the active roster, and at that point we evaluate the other RBs and see if one of them now become expendable or trade value is to good to pass up. I just can't justify carrying 5 RBs on the active roster.
  7. I think JMatt will cost about the same but the difference is, THIS YEAR JMatt costs 1.5 million. We don't have the other 5-6 million sitting around to pay him THIS YEAR. Next year you give me the choice it's a no brainer but this year we can't afford it.
  8. Like the idea and the competition it brings in the locker room. i just worry about injury from someone pushing themselves to far to win a silly competition.
  9. I think you are still looking at paying him 5-8 million a year (probably right in the middle). He isn't an elite receiver but he is more then solid #2.
  10. If we had the cap space I would love to add him to the mix at WR. I think his stats in KC don't translate to his actually ability. There pass offense is not exactly electric more game managing. Having Maclin as a #2 would be great but we just don't have the cap space to do it.
  11. I'm not worried about him signing there is a rookie salary cap now so he can't really hold out for more money like in the past. Now it all comes down to wording and that will work itself out.
  12. Those are kinda cool aren't they. Just think of all the different ways to use them.
  13. 49ers cut K D Cannon after rookie minicamp this weekend I wouldn't mind picking him up and giving him a shot to compete with our other 2 young speedsters may the best man win.
  14. Preseason definitely matters. It helps rookies and FA acclimate with their new team and gives them time to learn the speed of the game. Can you imagine how sloppy the beginning of the season would be without it. They mention rookie mistakes all year already.
  15. I look at this roster and I see something I haven't seen in a very long time, depth. Quality depth at many positions QB, TE, WR, G, C, DE and depth at DT, CB, RB, OT and S. You can argue quality depth at OT if you believe in Vaitai and can argue DT too with Allen but with him being hurt I didn't. I think next year we go hard after OT and LB possibly RB depending how our run game looks this year. I really like how this team looks going forward. I don't think we are contenders yet but I think we are moving in the right direction.
