Balmer has been playing very well in the past six games or so. He hasn't been getting a LOT of playing time because the starting three have played so very well but losing him out of the rotation is NOT a good thing.
Really? I haven't even noticed him when I rewatch the games. I'd rather cut him and draft someone else. Guy has done absolutely nothing to impress me. He produces like a 6th round pic
I have seen him, even with the little time he had gotten to play and without having to re-watch games. I have seen him get pressure on the QB a few times and make some stops. Even in MM's breakdowns of games, he has stated that Balmer is doing a good job with the little opportunity he gets.
Fans can be so fickle. The same people who are so quick to dump a guy are the same people who wanted to cut Smith in the off-season. Balmer may pay-off down the road, especially if the Niners don't want to pay Franklin the kind of money he will most likely demand.
