I didn't even look at the article. I knew it would be something negative. If the 49ers would have spent a lot they would still say something bad about them. I don't care what these people say anyway. If Dallas or New England would have picked up Carr, they would be hailed as geniuses. In one ear and out the other.

Pashos?, gone Carr added?
Missed out on several players who could help, Chromartie. Rolle, not to mention Dansby or any of the pass rush ends that have moved already!
We may not be losers but we look like chumps!
(before you say it I was not thinking we would sign all those guys, maybe one or two to clear up our needs going into the draft)

If the Niners had swung and missed on a perennial probowl guard or tackle, then I would have to agree with them. But to comment on the Niners signing a no. 2 QB? That would have to be a reach...
Additionally, did I miss something? Or was there some obvious perfect upgrade from Alex floating around the FA market that we don't know about. It's not like we signed Carr because we failed to get our act together to get Peyton Manning.
the Jets are the big winners? their main guy was traded for, not signed. and its just Cromartie. hes an overrated player with personal troubles. i dont see how hes such a great add.
the Jags are winners? really? because they signed "im old and washed up" Aaron Kampman? a team with not only the worst pass rush in football last year, but one of the historically worst of all time, adding a guy whos all but lost his pass rush ability? but they signed kassim osgood! yeah, not impressed.
and i dont get how we are "losers" because we upgraded at backup QB, and decided not to overpay for a bunch of players we dont have a need for...
we need a speed return type guy, a T, and a DB. last i checked, there wasnt any great options readily available in those areas yet.
this is not the offseason for big spending. lets focus on the draft.
