N. Clements might be out for season..fractured shoulder blade

i always thought for this game he got chosen to be a 3rd/4th cb to match up against dallas clark which would have helped on the last drive.

You cannot possibly be serious.

He is due like 6 million next year. If the DB's (Spencer and Brown) play well while Nate is out, there is no reason to be paying a guy that much money to be the 3rd or 4th CB. He was the 4th CB going into yesterdays game.

He's the best all-around cornerback on the team. You don't just cut the guy because he's making $6 million next year. That's the most asinine thing I've ever heard. No one here is comfortable with Spencer and Brown as our starting corners next year.
That is how the NFL works. Even MM stated that he thinks Nate will be cut if Brown and Spencer keep playing well. Spencer has been better than Nate this year.

No MM stated this:

If Clements is out for the year, the 49ers will have a difficult decision to make. He is scheduled to make $6 million in base salary next season. If the team determines that is more than they're willing to pay for his services, their options are to release him or ask him to accept a pay reduction.

Spencer has played well, but also had a mental lapse in giving up the touchdown that cost the 49ers the game yesterday. I'm not comfortable putting out Brown (limited experience) and Spencer (his first good season since being a 49er) as our corners.

Clements' demotion was being looked at as a one game thing because he is better at being physical and matching up with bigger and stronger receivers. I don't think it's any secret that Spencer and Hudson are probably faster than Clements at this stage in his career.

Sure. Go look at the Dallas tape from last year. Nate is good, but he shouldn't be the highest paid player on the team when we have other needs. We can get a better CB than Nate at a way better price.

Well when he comes back, I hope he'll play Free Safety and Dash G will play SS. Nate will be a better FS than he will be a corner for his next 5 years. He should sit back on the side lines and learn the position, if he's going to be out for the remainder of the year. AND if he's willing to take a pay cut, that's another reason I would want him on the team. It would show how much he wants to win with Da9ers!
looks like it might only be 2 games.... THANK GOD!!!

Um, he's not this year:

74 LT Joe Staley $13,500,000 $460,000 $13,040,000 2017
94 DE Justin Smith $10,583,333 $3,500,000 $7,083,333 2013
21 RB Frank Gore $6,483,000 $2,500,000 $3,983,000 2011/2010
98 OLB Parys Haralson $5,800,000 $880,000 $4,920,000 2013
22 CB/PR Nate Clements $5,683,332 $3,516,666 $2,166,666 2013

You have to overpay in free agency for good cornerbacks because they don't really come around a whole hell of a lot.
MM just reported on KNBR - Clements out 6-8 weeks.

T. Brown it's your time!
