Well it only makes sense to trade him if they think we have someone that can step in and do good. So who is the backup NT, Balmer or Ricky Jean Francois?

Or if we want to target a guy like Dan Williams in the draft...

Or move Sopoaga back to DT...


Sopoaga is still suck and worst cuz to playing a bi tch lazy!

Say what???????????

Goldson still has ways to go yet before we make him an 'untouchable.'

Andy Lee I could agree with to a point..

Yea, to me "Untouchable" means top 5-10 in the league at your position, and then I think about the "replace-a-bility" of that position, QBs are harder to find than punters.

No it's not similar to saying that at all. Willis has been a consistent performer since the day he was drafted. Apples and Oranges. This is the reason why he's franchised. If the team thought he was that awesome, they have the cap room to aggressively go after him with a long term deal - like they decided to do (in error) with Soapoaga.


".

I think you misunderstood my argument because I used a poor example. At the core of what I was trying to say is he's a very good player (if not elite) in a position that is very hard to fill. Just because he isn't the best (i.e. Hayneworth, Hampton, Wilfork) doesn't mean we shouldn't try hard to sign him.
However, I think your position is that he's really not that good and probably a one year contract wonder. That is however, where we would disagree.
I think if your going to take your angle the only logical way to approach it is to franchise Franklin and use a first round pick to groom his replacement in 2012. Anything else is an extreme and unnecessary risk at a time when the Niners are on the cusp of turning the corner as a franchise (again..)

Well turning the corner as a franchise - that's some heavy expectations bro. I certainly wouldn't go that far - not until that damn stadium is built!!! And not in OAKLAND (please God) - no offense! I actually agree with you here. We should try to re-sign him only after he's proven he's not a one-year contract wonder. My position isn't that he's really not that good, it's that it hasn't been sustained and at this point in his career we can only project what he will be. Again, which is the reason why team franchised him the way they did; they assigned a value to him - I agree with that value (rumored or otherwise).

Imagine that; I actually agree with what Scotty did.
