I was thinking the same thing because Snyder is flat out horrible. This is what I don't get. I know Barry Sims sucked at RT Last year but he looked really good at LT when he replaced Joe Staley. Why wasn't Sims able to beat out Barry Snyder this year if his on field play was superior? It makes you think. I'm guessing Boone is too young and inexperienced though. In any case lets draft and sign more Olineman in 2010. That position is currently a disaster.
If he was anywhere close to being ready, he would've been on the 53 man roster when Staley went down earlier in the season. Poor performance + injuries = chance for younger players. Boone obviously wasn't/isn't ready, otherwise he would've been called up from the practice squad by now.
The 49ers beat reporters MM etc get asked this all the time and they all say that Boone needs considerable development in terms of his footwork and general play. He is no where near ready to contribute at the moment and is a project going forward into next season and beyond.
