    "You mad, bro?" Forget that Richard Sherman personified the archetype villain to 49er fans the moment he tipped a last-ditch effort pass to Michael Crabtree in the 2013 NFC Championship Game, then made a "choke" gesture to Colin Kaepernick, the dejected 49ers bench, and the rest of the entire football-watching world. How about the fact that the 49ers brass just spent a reported $39 million over three years on a cornerback that is turning 30 later this month and is coming off of one Achilles tendon tear in one leg and a bone spur "clean up" in the other?

That many moves were a necessity last year because A) they didn't really know what they had as far as talent goes, and B) the little they did know about their inherited roster was that it was glaring with holes. So what better way to fix that roster than by gutting it and replacing it with players familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's style of offense and Seattle's three-deep zone style of defense and then just let the dust settle? Fortunately,...
