DE Will Tukuafu

Yeah this guy has a serious motor, I liked his tenacity when he got on the field ...Balmer NOT ONCE showed any passion or tenacity, I'm glad we got rid of that dead wood, Pete Carroll may be a great motivator, but he really has his owrk cut out for him ..SO LONG BALMER AND THANKS FOR NOTHING

I haven't watched the game yet and I'm waiting for the replay on NFLN.

But, for our sakes, hopefully he plays well and at least does better than Balmer lol.

In all livelihood he might fall short due to a numbers game. If he is, he can work on his craft on the practice squad. Maybe also try to beef up a bit.
I know he didn't do it against starters but there is something about this player. He's a helluva lot better than balmer ever was. He's got that natural ability with the size, speed and motor you wanna see off the edge. Bruce Davis, Brandon Long, Dixon now Westbrook. The niners are shopping like momz, Picking up on those hidden good deals. Good scouting or luck,end of the day good job by the front office.

Balmer expected QB's to give him sacks like he expected to start because he was drafted first.
you have to love these hustle guys. yes, he's on the small side....ahem, but so is j. smith.
I think we may see him paired up w/Ray Mac in passing situations...those two could wreak some havoc. DL with quickness can really be tough to handle...and it looks like WT has it.
So we basically traded balmer to seattle for Tukuafu and a 6th round pick. Not too bad.
Did I see Tukuafu get another sack in Game 2?
practice squad!
think he sticks around...bye evans

1 tackle and 1 assist.
He had that one tackle in the back field, which was awesome!!! The guy has made more plays in these two games than Balmer did for us his first 2 years!!! Balmer didn't do s**t vs. the Pack either. Im happy we let his ass go. Tukuafu is more athletic and is passionate about making this team...and I'd rather have that than some bum who isn't motivated.

I hope he makes it cause I like this guy's motor a lot, but I have a feeling they won't keep him on the roster over Evans. I guess we'll find out soon.
