I'm sure we could all pinpoint a higr mistake that was made, resulting in the current state of the Niners. Alex over Aaron, giving Sing an extension, etc..
I was thinking about the domino effect of the Chilo draft selection.. I get that hindsight is 20/20, but if the Niners would have selected D Jackson over Chilo things might look very different. Consider this..
Jackson on the roster may have led the Niners to select M Oher over Crabtree in 2009, that selection would have allowed the team to select BPA in 2010. MAybe Earl Thomas? I get that you could go back and cherry pick through any draft and build a dream team, but steps 2 and 3 of this scenario would have been very likely if the Niners had picked Jackson over Rachel.
This team would look a good deal better if we swapped Rachel, Crabtree and Davis for Desean Jackson, Oher and Thomas
