wouldnt we be penalized for having too many men on the field??

No we're converting to a 2-2-7 defense.

Well with 5 guys blocking 2. eventually someone WILL get open.

Then I guess we'd have to boost coverage and go with the 1-10 defense.

we need to just go with the 0-0-11 D, the future of defense

a montae ball or laveon bell to replace frank gore. perhaps---i think frank's big contract may be where paraag marathe looks to find $ to extend kaepernick and aldon smith and mike iupati

a keenan allen, cordarelle patterson or justin hunter to replace crabtree when he leaves as a free agent--given that it takes receivers, usually, longer to adjust to pro game, better to get a rookie now and groom than when crabtree leaves

Frank Gore has never had a "big" contract. He's gotten paid well, but I wouldn't consider any of his deals big, as in, top running back money. Plus, Frank Gore is still a highly productive back. Not only that, but he's only under contract for 2 more seasons. A player like Carlos Rogers on the other hand is the one who may be on the hot seat. I don't think we are in as much trouble as people think. By 2015, Donte Whitner, Frank Gore, Justin Smith, possibly Carlos Rogers, Anquan Boldin, etc will all be off of the books. This flat cap should also be ending around that time. We will be fine.

As for finding talent for future need, we have a boatload of picks and really need to come away with 5 future starters out of this draft. The positions have already been discussed. We will need them not only to replace guys that have left, but also to prepare for future departures.

frank is getting old---for an nfl rb---and niners will look for every dollar they can to reup their young turks
if hunt sits pine for a couple more years until cowboy retires, he's going to be 28 or 29 years old already.

This years receivers are really underwhelming I couldn't care less if we drafted one or not.

I would like to see us draft Chris Harper out of Kansas State, big bodied receiver who converted from QB. He is likely to be available in the 4th round and would be a nice complement to the offense. He does a nice job getting open on intermediate routes and screening off defenders, has good speed and is a smart player.
