I was reading about the upcoming game with the Gints and heard that ex-Niner's center/guard/turnstyle is David Baas and it prompted me to start this thread. Week to week I want to keep an eye on the opposing teams' roster and look for guys that used to be in the 49er system and talk about how much they suck now.
I have an incredible homerism generally when it comes to players on the 49ers roster but Baas always seemed soft to me. I know he filled in pretty well last year for Heitmann, but overall this guy's play (as a second round draft pick) was pretty underwhelming. I wasn't sorry to see him off and Goodwin replace that spot. A big part of why the line is succeeding right now has to be from that veteran influence of both he and Snyder in the middle which has helped the two sophomore lineman, Iupati and Davis, really get stronger.
This weekend, and it's not much of a reach here, that the Giants will have zero success running between the tackles and Baas gets at least one sack to his credit.
