This is getting rediculous, lets just enjoy the game and be greatful we have a team.

Cohn and others are just being a bunch of babies!

Go Niners!

One baby here who is mega pissed at what has been going on at 4949 Lane the last 7 years...

I'mmmm MAD and I'm Not gonna take it any more!! Wait, maybe I will have to.

I will enjoy the game as long as my team doesn't look like wheels are falling off, as long as my Niner QB doesn't walk off the field with his head and shoulders down. Worst QB body language I've ever seen.

Hey, I stayed up to the bitter end watching, and I do mean bitter, in the dark swearing at Smith and the D.. yes the Oline.. but he has some time and well, you see what happens.

Man if I was in my seats at the Stick and had to see the wheels come off in such an embarrassing way..

My bros I park with at "E" pole in the main lot, well you should hear how those 30+ year, every game, fans talk about this BS..

But hey..

GO NINERS!!! Show me!!

Cohn knows the TRUTH. He's not fooled by Singletary like many on this board are. The article is fair and I applaud Cohn for it.


co-signed. Nothing will change. The Niner will play 500 ball from here on out and everything will be in the same fashion as it has been.

Sing better learn how to replace players quick, because this team is half a dozen starters shy of competing for any title.

And here's where we're handicapped by bad drafting/personnel decisions:

Spikes, Smith, Clements, Heitman, and Franklin are either 30 or fast approaching. Even the window on the CURRENT team is closing.

We will need to rebuild completely in 2 years as these players become more susceptible to injury.

Great points. You need to fill your current holes faster than new ones pop up; if you can't do that; you are better served trading away what good players you have and rebuilding from scratch

Quick side note non Niner related. I have been saying for 2 years now that the Chargers needed to get an heir for Jamal Williams; given his age and importance as the NT in a 3-4. They are not half the defense they use to be without Jamal Williams right now

Walsh always looked to the future and usually had good players ready to go when a starter only had a year or two left. The great thing about bringing in younger talent is your paying a starter less money for the same or better performance than you would an older player on the decline. Better to let a player go a year early than to hold onto him a year too long.

Wow. What a question to ask.

Let it go. Just let it go.

It's seems that Cohn has been infected with Kawakami-itis, and felt a need to inject himself into a story.

That's exactly what this is.....but winning cures all. It also helps to recognize the bandwagon fans(media included). That's why I really could care less about what these observers think....if we win Sing is great if we lose he sucks....and were only in his first year as a HC.

I respect Kawakami a whole lot more than Cohn.

Cohn is nothing more than a 3rd tier pseudo journalist who feels the need to personally inject himself in the story because that's the only way people would ever read any of his articles.

AND HE IS OFF!!!!

Cohn: Time for 49ers to put up or Singletary to shut up
http://www.pressdemocrat.com/article/20091111/sports/911119921

man Cohn is trying to get Sing to Snap....he even through words around like

Quote:
You wonder if Singletary really has convictions, is committed to what he says he believes, or if his convictions are just fancy words that blow here and there like hot air.

now I know he is talking about football...but he also knows Sing is religious....it looks like he purposely used the word "convictions"....when he could have phrased it a different way.

Going back to march, Cohn never seem to like Sing for whatever reason. and obviously he waited for the right opportunity (the loosing streak) to go on the offensive.

I wouldn't put Clements in the old category. He's 29. A good corner can play well until 33, 34, 35. Deion was real good into his 30's.

The 49ers 94 Super Bowl team had several 30 something players on the roster at key positions. So did the Cowboys dynasty team of the 90's. Look at the rosters.

It's a dream world to think every player is going to be 29 and less on your roster. Look around the NFL. Get real.

Yes, the 1994 49ers had 30-somethings with GREAT talent in the trenches, great coaching and awesome preparation. Does Deion need to be outstanding every game with a very young Stubblefield and Young at DT, Ricky Jackson at DE, providing a real pass-rush? Dominating safety play with Hanks who could cover any TE? Deion was brought in for Dallas.

Where are teams young? Trenches and CB (where you need speed). The key players on the Cowboys team of the 90's weren't 30 something in 1992.

Jerry Rice was 32. John Taylor was 32. Do you need speed at that position?

Darryl Green ran a 4.24 at 40 years old. Don't tell me you can't be fast and older. That depends on the person.

Your team is always going to have a mixture of 20 something and 30 something guys. That's good BTW. You can't put all rookies and 2nd year guys out there and expect to win.
