Things to look forward to NEXT year...

......uh..how about the majority of the team. You want the entire roster gutted? For what? So it can take another 3 years to even get back to 8-8?

Are the only MUST keep players but even then if the right offer presented itself I would listen.

Gore should be used for trade bait. I love him, but if we could get picks...

Yah I agree its time to move from Gore as the bell cow of the offense. RB by committee is the new NFL.

seems about right
Roughly 30 players on the current squad will still be on the roster when this team gets into the playoffs.

We could discuss 2 or 3 of those but would certainly agree on 28-30.

NOTE: Due to the lack of a QB, it will be two more years before a rookie will be ready to lead this team. Hence, my forecast is that the 49ers will next make the playoffs in 2012. Some like Gore, Clements, Goldson and Spikes will likely no longer be starters or have left the team for other reasons.

QB Nate Davis has shown some potential, but unless we are using the same offense next year I can't see them investing a lot more time in him.
SanFranAddic, I'm interested to know why you took Byham over Walker? Granted, Walker is exceptional trade bait, but in my book, Walker's speed, soft hands, and special teams contributions make him worth keeping. I should mention that I'm very impressed with Walker and am subsequently biased.

I'll concede that I'm a bit prejudiced against TE's with (to this point) balky hands, so there's a good chance that I'm missing what many seem to like about Byham. It's way too early to write Byham off, but to this point I haven't been very impressed vs. Walker...again, I'm biased.

Not being snide or sarcastic, various players fly under everyone's radar from time to time. It would seem Byham has flown under mine.

I'm not going to let you die alone on that assertion.

When you consider what Smith is doing with an obligatory double team that frequently draws support from a back, it quickly becomes difficult to argue that Smith isn't the most dominating player that we field. Think about it, a double team is 1/3rd of an opponent's average pass protection scheme, often more. The fact that he manages to hury QBs at all is amazing, given what he's up against. He's an absolute animal and a joy to watch on Sundays.

We're damned lucky that Justin Smith is sane and living on the right side of the law. Otherwise, we'd all be menu items at Justin Smith's BQQ.
