Anthony Davis is a Niner!

It's Bulaga...and he'll be solid in the NFL

yes, I realize the whale isn't spelled baluga either...

No doubt. I'm just saying there was a lot of angry people declaring "we f**ked up", etc., declaring we should have taken Bulaga ... I guess I trust the 49er board and their player rating(s).

I still can't believe we took 2 OL guys. Just incredible. I didn't think we had the stones to do it but we did.

We really did!!

Baalke is the f**king man, and I'm going to assume by tonight/tomorrow there's gonna be a very adequate explanation to this trade (and there most likely was).

I just can't believe it... we've needed this type of line, specially going into those first 5 weeks of the season!

Love it!
Do you all realize we took TWO of the highest rated OL in a very deep OL draft? The BEST guard and one of the highest rated OT.

That's so sick.
They did it. They f**king did it.
If this move gets gore 500 more yards and smith 1 more sec in the pocket each pass then it is the best move they could have made.

do you think it gets them that?
LOVE the pick.

Love the trade up(Miami was definitely going to swoop up Davis, a 4th doesn't mean s**t to us right now)

I really Love the month Baalke is having.

I don't understand why we had to give up our fourth round pick in a deep draft to move up two spots to get Davis. He likely would have been there at 13 and if not Bulaga would have been. Nevermind that I feel a lot more comfortable with Bulaga than Davis. I could have accepted getting Davis and assumed they had their reasons for liking him better if they could have waited until our thirteenth pick. Now we have spent more than our hightest pick on a twenty year old, overweight, unmotivated player. If Solari and Brown make a Pro-Bowler out of him I'll be thrilled and relieved.

Stop your b***hing! It was a good pick.

Totally agree with you man, I doubt any player will be lazy with our coach to keep him in line.

Baalke has made quite an impression on me already, trading for a speedy KR in Ginn and moving in the draft! Something McNolan never really seemed to do.

I like a GM who is willing to move around to pick up the player they want, hopefully they will pay Iupati when the time comes and keep him around for a long time

Exactly.

They immediately traded the pick once we took Davis! Oops someone's board got blown up!!! Maybe it's me but I really feel like we abused Miami this off-season.

and was it just me Memphis, but Anthony did not "look" fat. Usually when I hear the fat and lazy talk you can see it through the poor dudes suit.....Anthony looked like a fit guy in a suit anyway

Exactly! Good observation.
Championship caliber GMs go after their guy. Baalke did!

What a Touchdown for our future GM.



I can see Davis and Iupati take on the left side from the get go especially with Solari and Brown. It speaks volumes that we chose two rookies for them to mold.

Man, I just can't wait for Davis and Iupati to tag team Dockett for the first time!

A top five LOT when he's on...no doubt. I think he's going to be "on" for Coach, don't you think? You could hear the genuineness in his voice about being a Niner, he even choked up once.

For a #11 pick, we got our franchise LOT for the next 10 years. And, he's got a brother to hang with on one side for just as long in Iupati. Two maulers who finally can get those "two yards" that Singletary always talks about.

Finally!!!!!
