I like Whitner. I think we still probably let him walk after this year but I've got to admit I've got a soft spot for him

He seems like a really good dude, but he makes more glaring mistakes than anyone on this defense.
Whitner catches a lot of flak but the guy shows up to play and delivers some spirited hits. I'm glad he's a 49er

Agree
I've been guilty of posting that the niners have to replace Whitner next year, or soon; but it's not because I don't appreciate him...just believe they can upgrade the position. The one area I would worry most about is his leadership. He really steadies the DBs...and you have to love his big play potential. Some of the penalties called have been in error and others have been unavoidable. Hard to always turn the body to lead with the shoulder.

I think Whitner could go somewhere else and start for a few more years but I'd love it if we could convince him to be our #3 safety. He seems like a great leader and mentor.

Hmm...best result! He could mentor two young guys and still be a really good back up. I like that idea.
Gore has lost a step.
Crabtree is a slow and always injured pre madonna.
Kaepernick can't play in the pocket.
Staley is over rated.
Walker can't catch.
Smith is just a game manager.
Goldson doesn't wrap up.
Rogers got his money and doesn't care now.

And Whitner is a liability.

Did I miss any?

Yes, you missed every other player who will someday be replaced! LOL! Such a fickle game!

such a great play.
Whitner has been one of the few players to improve from last season imo.
