In the backup scenario, I'm assuming our 1st rounder went to Philly, Houston slides a little, and we package our 2nd and 4th(or something) to move up. Plus, it lets me put two Bulldogs on the team.
In the ideal scenario, that could really help offset some of the damage from any lockout. It's usually the defenses that start off well in TC and preseason while the offenses have to find their timing, etc. Add a legit lock-down corner and a kid with great passrush potential to our already stout run D, and it's a defense that can win some games. That may not be what we want to hear in the Post-Singletary era, but an extended lockout would effectively kill our chances at having a really dynamic offense, at least for the first half of the season. I'll take winning for now, and winning 49er-style next season.
