All that frustration over nothing. Time to look forward to Sunday.

do you think the Colts would pick him up, if we did put him on the practice squad?
lets see, although Manning is not retiring anytime soon, they do need a QB to groom right now.....and they were the only team to scout him, even though they knew about his "learning disability". They also got a good look at him in their game against us...
anyway, about Nate taking 2 years to learn a new playbook or what ever.....I don't really believe in the that kind of talk our coaches have been feeding us....its not like they have amazing track records with QBs...or how to develop one.....I"m talking about Singletary and Raye.... Mike Johnson is relevantly quiet about the whole Nate struggling to pickup the offense thing...
I refuse to believe that Nate is the first QB with dyslexia to start at QB in the NFL...the NFL has been around for a long time.....I just think we have the wrong coaches for Nate...they keep telling him he can't this or that..complain about his work ethic, even though he worked at getting better in the summer while still trying to balance spending time with his daughter (his words).
I think another OC/HC would find a way to let Nate just play....use his natural talent at the QB position. Not saying the QB position is that simple to play, but I think another set of seasoned coaches would find a way to use Nate to the best of his abilities....If this team was reliant on Nate becoming a great QB, then I would say we need a new HC and OC....but this team does not revolve around Nate so we'll just go with what we have....

LOL, worrying about how good your 3rd string QB is right now? Haha, typical Niner talk. They are not going to go sign another QB because a 3rd stringer didn't look sharp in a preseason game.

Well, I was able to predict that the 49ers were going to attempt to do this, but I am surprised that they signed another QB to be on the 53 man roster. I thought that they would do this and only have 2 QBs on the roster with MR being the emergency QB. What will be interesting now is to see if anyone does pick up Nate before the 49ers can put him on the practice squad like many on this thread predicted.
Some thoughts on this. I think it was ESPN who said that this move indicates that the 49ers are not sold on Carr as the #2 QB - I would have to agree. If you have Nate on the practice squad, I am not so sure you needed Smith. Also, apparently it was Singletary who wanted Troy Smith and told Baalke to get him. I don't know that we want our head coach looking over the release list of teams trying to find talent. Baalke should have come to Singletary and suggested the idea - not the other way around.
