Adam Snyder over Marvel Smith

M. Smith isn't playing as much right now as Snyder because coaches are being cautious with his back. But I think they paid him to be a starter. Only if Snyder shows a MAJOR MAJOR improvement during the exhibition games do they decide to go with him.
Looks like we need another right tackle .

Dang.... can we get rid of Barry Sims, please!!!!
If Marvel Smith can stay healthy we have a solid RT. Again that is a big bolded underlined IF

Oh wait - this is Niner Talk.

Never mind. Carry on.

Ditto.

Non-noobs may remember when the Niners won a Super Bowl with pairs of guards and tackles playing alternate quarters. Using Snyder/Smith this way would be a win-win.
One thing that is overlooked about this line is the fact that after George Warhop was shown the door and Chris Foerster was incharge it really started to improve. It was no accident that Warhop was let go when Sing took over. This line under Foerster will be much better. I also like Sing logic as the better player starts, as opposed to Nolans Vets and dollars.
Im sure they will start the guy that deserves the spot. Sing wants winners not losers. LOL
Adam Snyder can play ball.. give him the starting nod
Whoever starts may be so-so. Snyder might actually play up to his potential if he can concentrate on one spot all year. Whereas Smith when healthy has been a pro bowl player. Either way, whoever starts, we will have a good back-up who can step in on either side although I don't see staley ever getting injured.

M. Smith >>>>>>>>B. Sims. Either way we get a better back-up
What's the rush to start Smith anyway? Start Snyder who is pretty solid at tackle and if he begins to stink it up or gets injured plug in Smith. This way we give Smith more time to heal and because he's a veteran he should be able to come in like a champ after getting extra time to learn the system. This is a big win for us.
I think the only year (besides this one) where Snyder actually concentrated at one single position, was in his rookie year.

I've always liked Snyder, I think he did a great job at LT in place of Jennings.

The problem is, they always moved him around, from right to left, from left to right, then last year they threw him in at guard.

He finally has a chance to work through training camp at one position.

He is a very solid player, IMO. Good positioning, good size and strength. The only thing he lacks is the elite quickness of a player like Staley.

I am glad they are finally giving Snyder a chance to be a player rather than a filler.

Great post, although I think they think of Snyder as:
