Late to the Party

The first week of Free (but expensive) Agency roared fat over the middle of the plate and 49er GM Trent Baalke didn’t even take the bat off his shoulder. Steeeeeeeeeeeeeeerike One!

Most of the good teams in the league didn’t bite on the high priced drifters, either. But they didn’t need to. They already have good players. It’s the bad teams that desperately seek instant upgrades in talent. And they have the Cap space to afford the gamble.

It’s not difficult to see which group the 49ers belong in. Or maybe it’s another group — a dreaded group described over the weekend by Raiders’ GM Reggie McKenzie: “It’s good to have people call us and not have to beg.”

The Beggars Group.

Baalke will be on his knees full time this week, trying to lure some second banana talents or leftovers from the first week. There’s been no fix to the O-line except re-signing Jordan Devey, who was benched last year. ILB Michael Wilhoite was also re-signed, even though he’s not much of an upgrade over wasted space.

It’s also looking more and more like the Niners will get chumped in the Colin Kaepernick saga. Nobody is offering more than a third round pick, and they don’t want to assume Kap’s contract, either. There’s no incentive for Kap to cut his salary so the Niners can trade him, when he can just stay put and force the team to either pay him $12 million on April 1 or cut him and let him find his own team while the Niners get no compensation.

    The better deal for Kap is Denver. The better deal for niners is CLE.

    Kap knows this and will not restructure his contract after Alex Mack, Mitchell Schwartz, and Travis Benjamin left.

    Niners need to get real. Do the Denver deal and absolutely remove the injury contingencies.

    Kap has good reason to shut down the CLE deal.

  2. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    If you were the niners would you pay CLE to get the salary cut they demand Kap take to get the deal done.

    In a heartbeat. Cover the salary gap for the first year. Would CLE accept a disgruntled Kap.

  3. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    I’d rather see a deal involving Mo, here in NJ
    Bakkentom.

    But…
    Taking a Pick from Cleveland has it’s merits.

    Sanchez to Denver seemed like a curious move to me.
    Could signal a bluff, to see if Kaep gets released?
    And, perhaps to put another of Chip’s guys, closer to the negotiating table?

  4. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Broncos offering a future 4th round pick for Kap.
    Show how the league values his abilities.
    Niners received two #2s for Alex Smith.
    Apparently Kap’s potential has left the building and teams know about his shortcomings.

  5. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Wow, Brock merits a huge contract with a small body of work. Desperate bidders willing to pump ghosts. Houston evaluated Kap and made what looks like a terrible move.

    GM’s can lose their jobs with a Kap pickup. They elect to make foolish moves elsewhere.

  6. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Cards got Chandler Jones from NE for OG Jonathan Cooper and their 2016 2nd.

    POOF. Another pass rushing talent gone. Pats realized they could not compete in a bidding war for Jones next year.

    Get value now and a great deal from Cards. Develop the potential of a previous 1st Rd OG and a late 2nd. Cards gave up too much but Carson Palmer has limited time left. Lack of edge rush exposed in Carolina.

  7. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Meanwhile TB has effectively done nothing.

    A trade for Kap fell into his lap from the Broncos. Broncos savvy about QB’s and have determined fair value. TB trying to milk the deal for crumbs.

    He risks a messy ending with April 1 deadline. Deal him now and get rid of the risk. Instead TB wheels and deals for what amounts to nothing.

  8. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Kap territory:

    “Some QBs traded for a 4th-round pick: Ty Detmer (2002), Trent Dilfer (2005), Sage Rosenfels (2009), Jason Campbell (2010).”

  9. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    NYJ is over the cap. Dealing Wilkerson can fix that. They have three high paid young 1st Rd picks at 3-4 DE.

    NYJ has a big need to deal. Trade picks, players. You rob banks because that is where the money is.

    TB has hoarded our salary cap dollars. Roster now very young on rookie contracts. We can give NYJ the best deal. Can easily pay Wilkerson. Kap is almost gone, trade or release.

    Assume the wait is due to the Fitzpatrick contract resolution. At worst give up our 2nd or 3rd and a player. NYJ gets cap relief too.

  10. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    How Myles Jack did at the UCLA Pro Day
    Jack will probably be gone when Niners pick.

    Would consider DT Kenny Clark in second round.

  11. winderNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- I still want Goff as our 1st and I think he’s worth the shot to the team,but to get a Buckner wouldn’t be the end of the world either. I just have a sinking feeling that he will go DB or WR.

  12. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Winder

    I’m just wary of picking 2 Dlinemen from Oregon with #1 pickas 2 years in a row.
    We saw with picking Iupati asnd A Davis in the first round that when contract time comes around it’s a problem to your salary cap and you have TO PICK AND CHOOSE.
    Because the draft is deep with Dlinemen you can pick up some very good players in later rounds that play Dline.

  13. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    49ers are runaway leaders in least active and most boring franchise.

  14. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    I told you guys this would happen two years ago. That’s foresight. This time two years ago I was bangin’ the Baalke sucks drum. At the time, I also told you if Jed took the team down this road, it would be a cellar-dweller for a decade. One year down – Nine more to go. Good luck with that.

  15. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Pats are making all kinds of moves.
    Yesterday they traded Chandler jones for Jonathan Cooper OL and a 4th rd pick.
    Today they made a trade for TE Martellus Bennett from the Bears.

    This gives them the dual threat at TE that they have lacked since Bozo decided to kill some people and go to jail.

    At the very least Baalke should bring in a FA Olineman to offset the loss of Boone. Waiting gives you bottom of the barrel guys like Pears.
    Pears was brought in because Tomsula liked him in NFL EDurope. So why is Pedars still here?

  16. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Broncos might be willing to trade Ryan Clady.

    Kap for Clady staright up would give Broncos their QB.

    Another trade I’d think hard about is Anthony Davis for Clady straight up.

    To get really creative how about Kap and Anthony Davis for Clady and their first round pick? It’s a win for both teams.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2016/03/17/broncos-ryan-clady-are-currently-at-impasse/

    Take Goff with 7th pick, with Denver’s pick at #31 take Ryan Kelly Center and with 2nd round pick take Will Fuller WR and you’ve laid a good foundation for a improved offense.

  17. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Interesting that Maiocco reports Brooks might stay because on a salary de-escalator that reduces his pay in 2016 to $4 mil a year.
    At $4 mil he can stick around but not at $9 mil

    http://www.csnbayarea.com/49ers/free-agent-market-justifies-brooks-value-49ers/

  18. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Curious report that the NYJ are to sign DT Jarvis Jenkins.
    Kaep to Jets for Mo is plenty reasonable to me too.
    Signing another DT simply replaced ‘Snacks’.
    Doesn’t address Sheldon or Mo.

    All predicated on what Fitzpatrick does and, for us to retain Kaep’s rights on April 1st.

  19. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Niners sign G Zane Beadles. Kudos to Baalke. This is a good move and one we all have been looking for to bolster the Oline.
    Beadles will replace Boone. They need to sign one more FA Olineman so they can say goodbye to pears.

    http://www.49erswebzone.com/news/92540-49ers-agree-3-year-deal-zane-beadles/

  20. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Beadles a dud. Underperformed at JAX, a big disappointment.

    Get his history at http://www.bigcatcountry.com

    We need stars, not retreads. WE NEED WILKERSON. Every impact player has passed us by. TB is awful. If no Wilkerson, then write this season off. We take baby steps.

    Rookies need at min one year to develop at oline and 1 to 2 years on dline. This dumpster diving shtick is getting old.

  21. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Clady is damaged goods. Two IR’D seasons with knee surgeries.

    DEN will keep only if he restructures, with deep cuts in salary.

  22. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Beadles is 29 and was a Pro Bowler in 2012.
    Prom football focus ranked him the best offensive player on the Jags before last season giving Beadles a grade of +2.2

  23. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The Niners don’t need to overspend until they right the ship and build a solid core and foundation.
    Getting splashy players and overpaying them is just window dressing and won’t help land you in the playoffs this year.
    Playoffs possibly next year and for sure in 2018 if right moves are made.

  24. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Bortles and Allen Robinson outperformed last year. Luke Joeckel a big disappointment so far for a high 1st rounder.

    PFF stats for oline man may be unreliable. Fans say he has sucked.

  25. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Wilkerson is no splash. Justin Smith 2.0 in his prime and only 25 or so. Build D around studs like him.

    Raiders picked up Irvin and Sean Smith in this crazy FA market with reasonable deals. Why did we lose out. Could easily over bid on those two.

    Stop placating TB. He is turning out to be fresh garbage.

  26. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Only thing we have going for us is a weak schedule. Stick with Gabbert and develop Conner Cook, Kevin Hogan etc with mid level picks.

  27. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “Beadles is rated 64th best guard out of 82.”

  28. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Seems Beadles excels at ZBS. JAX with new coaches went to power blocking scheme last year.

    So with this pickup we will be more zbs?

  29. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “…it was actually Beadle’s pass blocking that declined in 2015. 41 pressures allowed 5th most among G’s.”

    Not a ZBS issue.

  30. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Yippee. Another retread.

  31. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    This is why if Goff is sitting there at #7 you draft him if you’re the Niners

    Speculation on what Kap is going to do in about 15 days if he’s still with the Niners

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-football/25523301/heres-what-kaepernick-will-reportedly-do-if-his-trade-demands-arent-met

  33. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Most likely everyone is waiting to see if we retain him on April 1 Bullit.
    Anyone in the mix isn’t about to part with Picks if there’s a chance he’ll hit the street.
    I’m betting he gets retained, just to keep the leverage advantage.

    NYJ are still my darkhorse candidate.
    They’ve got next to nothing to spend and, they need a QB.
    Kaep would likely restructure for them over Cleveland too.
    Again, Mo stands a better chance to paid by us as well.

    I’d also test the waters with Aldon, if/when Kaep is moved.
    Might be that Aldon and Kaep couldn’t coexist, if the Nessa thing is accurate.

  34. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    It’s also a curious move on Denver’s part, to bring in Chip’s ‘other QB’ Sanchez too.
    Not sure it would sway the negotiations much, but, it might?
    All seems to be a posturing angle IMO.

  35. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Wilkerson in a trade will get you a one year rental at this point. You need to sign him to a long term deal which would result in big bucks as I’m sure his future contract will require
    close to $20 mil per season. That’s why I call him a splash signing. Niners don’t need him for next year only, they need him 2-5 years down the road but at what price?

  36. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I’ve seen suggestions that Niners might consider drafting this guy Ogbah at #7. This would be a huge reach as his numbers don’t translate into the NFL. I’ve watched his games against Texas and never have thought he was anything special. IMO he’s a late second round/3rd rd pick at best.

    http://thedraftwire.usatoday.com/2016/02/05/2016-nfl-draft-scouting-report-oklahoma-state-edge-emmanuel-ogbah/

  37. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I prefer Ogbah over Bosa myself.
    Agree 7 might be too high but, I like the idea of an edge guy.
    Mo is young enough to invest in too.
    If they have the opportunity to land him, that would open the door to taking a QB at 7 if that’s in play.
    Mo can play off the edge as well as move inside if needed.
    Curious to see how they slot the DT position now.
    Good depth there so, I wouldn’t see that as a RD1 Pick as things stand now.
    Though, I would love to land Rankins and Ogbah somehow.

  38. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    If Aldon did indeed leave (relapse) on account of Kaep, I’d test his interest (if any) to return if Kaep is moved.
    Give Aldon a fair offer, which wouldn’t impact the Cap until he’s cleared to return in November.
    A lot to consider with him but, if he’s cleaned himself up, we know he’s productive.

  39. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    My question is with Oakland Aldon has been a good citizen.
    With the Niners he has been a knucklehead with a trail of stupidity.
    Sadly maybe Oakland is the best environment for him as one more strike might be career ending.
    Aldon has already been punished twice where he’s been suspended for the majority of two seasons.

  40. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    What if the trading interest for Kap disappears on April 1.

    Are any of the suiters that solid.

  41. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Interest for a proven starter is always there Bakkentom.
    It’s the musical chairs theory.

    Kaep wants out.
    If the chairs get filled by RG III or Fits, Kaep has to decide his own fate about restructuring.
    His camp started this journey.
    Baalke is playing along.

  42. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    All interested parties are slow playing this and using what leverage they can get. As Apr 1 approaches somebody might blink.
    How does Denver offer a draft pick they don’t have? They have it in 2017 but that would be a joke on it’s current value.

    What might come out of this is Denver made a side deal and that would be tampering. Elway isn’t fooling anyone if true.

  43. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    With the recent deal, that put Philly in front of the NYG on the Draft Board, could there be any scenario where Baalke and Chip screw Philly, (if our intentions at 7 could wait) by allowing NY to leap ahead of them?
    Just throwing that one out there, because it looks so damn tempting to me.

  44. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Could be a hard-nosed play to steal a Pick from either NY or Philly.
    Moving back to 10 could still get Goff if he’s the intended target and still in play at 7.
    Neither Philly/TB or NY is expected to be looking at a QB anyway.

    Risky of course, if either Philly or TB take a deal of their own however.

  45. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Have heard talk that Howie Roseman might be vindictive enough to
    move ahead of the Niners with Ravens and take the QB (Wentz or Goff) just to screw Chip.
    So many potential scenarios.

  46. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Bradford only signed a 2 year deal with Philly which is quirky as most of the money is guaranteed. However it wouldn’t be that far fetched for Philly to draft a QB and grrom him for year 3.
    Nobody is tipping their hand.

  47. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Of course no Bullit, it’s all about keeping the Poker Faces in place.

    If we’re to buy the hype, Philly is positioned for EZ E from Ohio St.
    I just happened to check the values involved between us and 10, keeping the Chip/Philly dynamic in mind.
    If this move were to take shape, the values are in line for an extra 3 from NY.
    Might have to return a 5 to do it but, that’s how the game is played.

    Anything and everything is in play when it comes to the top 10.
    I enjoy all the smoke and angles pumped into it.
    Not like we need more Picks but, it does provide leverage to move around the Board.

  48. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I was expecting Comp Picks to be viable this year.
    Appears that doesn’t occur until next year?
    So, if Baalke attempts to condense he’d have to seek these sort of options.
    Slide back in little steps to accumulate Picks to jump back up.

  49. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Then again, with all the changes expected with Chip, we might be wise to restock in volume.
    Especially the OLine.
    Hard to predict when so much focus involves ‘Chips QB’.

  50. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The team I worry about who’ll try to leap frog the Niners are the Rams.
    They would be happy to draft either Wentz or Goff. That’s why Baalke can’t get too cute with this riverboat gambler crap.
    The team can’t sustain more draft busts.

  51. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    That’s the risk Bullit.
    No way to know what guy Chip is targeting to be ‘his QB’.
    Cleveland holds the card at 2.
    Everyone assumes they’ll take a QB.
    But, they need so many pieces they could easily consider Trading out if Kaep is a viable option for them.
    Agree St Loo is looking too for a QB.
    Whether they have the Picks to offer up is the question.
    Never know what surprises await when the clock starts.

  52. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    If we’re not sold on either guy it makes sense to accumulate additional Picks to position ourselves for those they do seek to acquire.
    The slotting game is toughest to predict.
    Being as this Class is heavy on Defense, you may find decent options well below the top 10.
    Cleveland can tip this thing completely upside down if they deal out of 2.
    I don’t have any particular opinion on Goff/Wentz other than stats.
    Whatever guy fits Chips’ Offense will determine that.
    For me, BPA at 7, regardless of position.
    If it’s Jack, Buckner or, someone else, that’s likely how they’ll play it.
    Have to find good fits on either side of the ball.

  53. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    There’s just something odd about Sanchez going to Denver too.
    Doesn’t seem like a good fit for them.
    Especially with Kaep on the block and Chip being his former Coach.

  54. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I have always thought BPA is a copout answer. For instance Buckner is not a pass rusher but more of a run stopper.
    For me he is too similar to what we already have on the team, Ian Williams, Jerod-Eddie, Armstead and Dial. All are steady players much like Ray McDonald.
    With the 7th pick we need more of big impact player.

    Last season you cannot name 5 plays that Armstead made that were memorable and worthy of being a first round pick.
    Baalke drafted Armstead based on potential. This coming season it’s time to show why he was a first rounder.

    This team lacks playmakers who make a difference.

  55. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    BPA is eye of the beholder.
    Baalke likes guys with long arms

  56. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    All depends on the position Bullit.
    Most interior DLmen take a year or 2 to develop.
    By BPA I simply mean the highest rated guy at any position.
    Hard to know where they’re going to focus but, I lean in favor of Defense simply because it’s a strong Class.
    If QB is the BPA, go for it.
    Problem there is the same debate. He won’t make a difference immediately.
    Most any guy on a Draft Board is Drafted on potential.
    Always comes down to ‘who wants it’.
    Pretty obvious at this point Kaep doesn’t want it.

    For me, this all starts with a plan.
    GM/HC working together to build it.
    All the Coaches/Scouts get their voices heard too, or at least, I’d expect them to.

    Calais Campbell is similar to Armstead in terms of size and he too took some time to become what he is for AZ.
    Need to put other components around them as well.
    As Aldon benefited from Justin, everything needs to be addressed as a unit, within some sort of scheme/plan.

    Myles Jack for example, could rate BPA, simply because of the loss of Patrick.
    Will he rate ahead of a QB?
    Yet TBD.

    After seeing Jalen Ramsey perform in Indy, I think he’s hands down the BPA and would trump Reid in a NY minute.
    But he isn’t coming close to Pick 7.
    BPA is normally the decision that’s made when you’re on the clock.
    Guy on the Board you value most.
    If the value isn’t there when Baalke is on the clock, that’s typically when offers are fielded, to slide back to where he thinks the value will be.
    No guarantees in this process. Plenty of risk depending on the position too.

  57. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Both Baalke and Chip shop for the long-armed guys Bullit.
    Can’t blame them, if you can’t reach him, you can’t control him.
    Reach wins especially if you can add speed to the mix, like Aldon.

  58. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Chip brought Armstead and Buckner to Oregon too.
    They compliment each other.
    Chip knows what he’s getting with both of them.
    All comes down to the value of a QB I guess and, who’s there when their slot comes up.
    Too many moving parts on Draft Day.

  59. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    One of the guys that caught my eye in Indy, with the long arms criteria, (34.5″) was OLB Steven Weatherly from Vandy.
    6’5″/267 and he turned in a 4.61 and put 23 reps on the bench.
    He’s on my list simply on stats.

    Haven’t seen him play however, just like Shalique Calhoun.
    Calhoun has the wingspan (34.25″) but is lighter and ran a 4.82
    I take Weatherly over Calhoun but, stats aren’t always a lock.
    So many ways to play the Board it’s mind numbing.

  60. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Not sure if I shared this but here’s the Combine data link –
    http://walterfootball.com/combine2016DL.php

    I look for the guys with the long arms too, along with the speed/strength data.
    Games played, tackles/sacks all get factored in as well.
    Then, the Scouts have to find scheme fits.
    No clue what our DCo is looking to do now either.
    Always liked the LeBeau scheme myself. Guys dropping out into coverage etc.
    See how this shapes up as we go I guess?

    Chip has a million Coaches on this Staff too, which I think you mentioned already.
    He’s a Mad Scientist of sorts.

  61. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Another guy I like inside at NT is Vernon Butler from LA Tech.
    6’3″/323
    What’s impressive about him is with 35″ arms he benched 26 reps.
    Most guys with the long arms don’t do well on the bench.

    Most of the DTs in this Class did very well in many areas.
    Lots of options…

  62. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Ian Rapaport of NFL Network just reported there have been some talk of Clady being part of a Broncos trade for Kap.

    Browns have had RG3 in for 2 days and Hue Jackson has come on air saying he really likes him as a QB and RG3 as a Brown is imminent if they can agree on a contract.

  64. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Baalke needs to get starters with his picks in the first 3 rounds.
    After a few seasons the forgotton guys still on the roster are Tank Carradine, Brandon Thomas and Marcus Martin and to a lesser extent Corey Lemonier.
    These guys have totally underperformed and none can even crack the starting lineup or have significant playing time.

    With a big draft class coming in their is a chance some of these names might be traded for 7th round picks or simply cut when the numbers work against them.

  65. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Armstead needs to show in the coming year why he was a first round pick.
    There were times last season when the play was by him that he stopped pursuing.
    Go back five years ago when Justin Smith pusued Maclin when he totally out of the play and caught up to him to cause the fumble that changed the direction of the team into a playoff trajectory.

    Armstead needs to trail these plays and not stop and watch .

  66. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The reason I’m so harsh on Armstead is he’s not in for 3 downs. He was in for about a third of the snaps so what’s he saving his energy for? His motor needs to run until the play is over and he hears the whistle.
    Realistic goals for him are 6 sacks and 10 TFLs for the 2016 season. Also more playing time playing half the snaps.

    A guy I left off our Dline depth chart is Glenn Dorsey. He is still expected to be a factor because Carradine isn’t.

  67. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Justin Smith never made near the money these recent FA’s are getting. Obvious we are not going to pay top talent. Burden 100% on draft and minor FA with potential and coaching them up.

    This approach relies on high caliber drafts. If Tank, Marcs Martin, and Brandon Thomas are not quality starters shortly then TB needs to be fired.

  68. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “49ers DT Ian Williams has undergone more than one ankle surgery that has left his status for the season opener in question, per sources.”

    Skeebs- I am afraid the script has already been written. “A day late and a dollar short” and what in the heck are we gonna do with all these inferior goods? I just hope it plays out soon. Baalke is not fooling anyone.

    Article = “Are the Niners Cursed?”

    It’s not worth reading so don’t bother wasting your valuable time. Take Phil’s short version instead. Some idiot at USA Today has awakened to the fact that the Niners stink. He rattles off a litany of shit starting with the Alex Smith blown NFCCG (with an assist from Williams) right down to Ian Williams hobbled ankle. OF COURSE the Niners are cursed, idiot. You wait till NOW to discover this? Idiot.

    The faithless Niner owner caused all this ‘cursedness’ by meddling in football operations he had no business getting with 100 miles of. Pure ego driven insanity/hubris destroyed the one chance the sad sack Niners had of getting off the mat. That chance is now gone and has been for years around here. This is not news. You do not need some hack from back East telling you what has been evident since Jed went cheap and failed to reward Jimi for the Super Bowl year.

    Still laughing at those who bought the Jed/Baalke BS that getting rid of Harbaugh and installing Tomsula would be an improvement.
    These suckers echoed every lie and are gullible beyond belief.
    The usual scenario is meoory loss and not realizing what fools they were.
    When Harbaugh was jettisoned the team fell apart without one of the best coaching staffs in the NFL. Imagine some guys actually welcomed the change to Tomsula.

    bullit- the team fell apart in the last year Harbaugh was here. It just got worse last year. But I am glad your laughing.

    I promise –
    If by chance I’m within 5 feet of Jed in Canton this Summer, I’ll cold-cock the SOB.
    Feckless insecure toad that he is.

    But only after I get a picture with Uncle Eddie 😀

    Thought it was a bit curious, to extend Ian, with all the talent at DT coming out next month.
    Now that he’s been retained on a 1yr deal, it will give his eventual replacement a year to learn the ropes, while Ian gets yet another year, to prove he can stay healthy.
    Now, to see what the cards hold for Dorsey…

    Winder

    2014 the team played the majority of the season without Willis and Aldon Smith and all of the season without Bowman. That’s taking 3 Pro Bowl players off your defense. That being said there were 3 games that year that should have been wins to give the team an 11-5 record rather than 8-8. At worst they should have finished 10-6.
    First game is obvious. Niners are inside the one yard line and Kap fumbles on a QB sneak.

    Against the Raiduhs Kap has an awful game throwing 2 picks and is sacked 5 times. Defense doesn’t do it’s part and Carr throws 3 TDs. Jed and York are seein leaving the stadium 5 mins before the game ends.

    Game against Chargers. Kap completes a 68 yard pass to V Davis but Gore is flagged for a chop block. Next play on 3rd and 20 Kap is sacked and fumbles and run in by Liuget for a 20 yard TD.
    Instaed of a 35-14 lead the game is now 28-21 on two plays.
    Chargers tie the score and in OT the Niners get the ball into Charger tterritory but Patton fumles at the Charger 38 and SD drives for a winning FG.

    My point is you give an excellent coach and a great coaching staff a chance to redeem itself. IMO it’s a knee jerk reaction
    to jettison the guy that brought you success and whitewash it with lies. I am laughing at the fools who took Jed and Baalke’s take and actually were chirping that Tomsula would exceed Harbaugh’s accomplishments.

  76. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    My point in hindsight is not to buy the BS from Jed/Baalke that anyone can coach this team to success. Look at the years before Harbaugh and this past season post Harbaugh.

    Can anyone seriously say the Niners are in a better place now than two years ago with Harbaugh as coach?

    Team is on the merry go round of finding a decent coach again.
    We’ve been to that carnival with Erickson, Nolan, Singletary and Tomsula (one game)
