Greetings from Paris, fellow 49er fans! I am here for work for a few weeks, but that doesn't mean I can abandon the Zone... even in the quietest months of the off-season!
First of all, the women in Paris are amazing. Like, really amazing. They really know how to dress here. It's nice. Very nice.
Second, I'm reading a lot of posts and predictions regarding FB Moran Norris not making the 53-man cut in August. To which I say... huh?
I really don't get it. Moran is Frank's guy. He plows the way for #21.
The rock goes to #21. #44 leads the way.
Granted, Norris is getting older. And yes, looking for a replacement isn't out of the question. But really, do you guys really think Miller or Caulcrick is going to be Frank's guy? What have you seen from either guy that would make you think he can step in and have the intelligence and power Norris brings as a blocker for Frank?
Yes, I know Miller was pretty impressive in last year's preseason... but that's when he was catching the football in the 4th quarter of exhibition games. We've never seen Miller block for Frank against first teamers and do things like recognize blitz packages and adjust accordingly.
And yes, Norris is not much of a threat with the football in his hands these days, but has his run blocking turned to poo that quickly? Do you guys really think Norris will be replaced with a player that has never played in a regular season NFL game?
I just don't see it. IMO, Norris is a lock for the 53. What do you think?
