Originally posted by sfout:Originally posted by doc_brown_:Brock was bumped by Eric Wright at time this year because of inconsistent play. He's good, but not great. Culliver's body of work is limited, but he also looked suspect in pass coverage at times during his rookie season. Granted it was his first year, still his development has been stunted by injury, which makes him a gamble.
Right now, I'd take these guys over Donte Whitner:
There may be others as well, but this is off the top of my head.
I like Whitner, but I don't think the 49ers should re-sign him. The fact that re-signing Whitner is debatable tells you something about his value.
Brock was bumped by Wright?? haha. Wright played in all of 7 regular season games and was left out of game planning heading into the final weeks of the season and into the playoffs because the coaches were upset with his preparation. This per multiple beat writers -- I have no idea where you are getting your info but Brock was consistent all year and if he missed snaps it was because he was getting a break. I'm pumped that Wright got to play for his childhood team but Brock had his starting job on lockdown from week 3 on, Wright won't be back unless he is happy being a #4 CB.
Brock was easily our best CB, Brown #2 maybe even 1b but he got called for far too many penalties.
Look man, you have your opinion but back them up with facts, don't just say "he's bad or won't be a pro bowler"
I'd take most of that list over Whitner too but guess what. They are either under contract or will cost $8 mill per year or more. Like I said already we don't throw money like that at outsiders.
That list is like saying "I'd rather have Calvin Johnson rather than Boldin/Crabtree" or "AP rather than Gore"...... it just won't happen.
It was solid in 2013? Was that right up until he gave up that ridiculous bomb against Seattle?
Whitner is a !ucking joke in coverage.
