Mini Camp Thread - (June 17-18)

Seems like a lot of the same questions as last year... Is the defense top-10? Is Alex the real deal? Can the O-line hold up?

49 Questions Heading Into OTAs

I was really thinking something happened. What is Phil Barber referring to?



Did we pick up Merrimen??? Didn't think I was away from the Zone that long??

Look at question #42...

I should give him a warning for misleading thread!!!!

Most teams do most years. Unless the team in question has an elite QB and/or pass rushers. But the answers to those questions will be different than the previous few years.

Most bad teams do most years. Most good teams address their needs in the off-season and come back a better team imo. The 49ers addressed the O-line, time to see if Alex finally comes through and if the defense can do it again. I think the defense can do it again and that the O-line will hold up, still not convinced about Alex but I keep hearing nothing but good things from the beat-writers.

It's called comedy Just something he threw in there b/c reading 49 questions isn't that exciting

It was a good one to throw in there
from MM twitter

Don't see Nate Clements, Shawntae Spencer or Manny Lawson out here stretching. #49ers

hmmm.

So far, it's just speculation that he won't show up, as far as I know. I agree that it's a mistake on his part, and not like him. I don't know who his agent is, but it seems to me that Manny's listening to his advice, if he doesn't show. It sucks for him if he participates and gets injured, sure... but he's not gonna be doing his career any favors by not participating.

Well said. Regardless of who he's getting his advice from, ultimately, it's Manny's decision - either way, Manny's not helping the situation by holding out.

My OTA questions

Does Crabtree move over to flanker, with Mogan and Ginn sharing duties as Split end?
Whos first off the bench, Jones or Hill and what spot are they getting reps at

Does Baas get any reps as Center, or does Wallace get all the backup reps?
whos first off the bench backing up Chilo

How does Vann and Williams do fielding punts on what should be pretty windy conditions

Who starts at Sam Linebacker

Paymah, K.Smith, James, Adams, Stoudamire, Brock... which ones look good in coverage

Spencer and Lawson both unhappy about their contracts..

I don't think Spencer is unhappy with his contract, he just likes to work out on his own. He did the same thing when he was rehabbing from his torn ACL.
Looking forward to hearing about Navorro Bowman and at what positions he is getting looks/reps at.
