Not sure why everyone is so excited? We've let all of our fa's test the market and now we are going to cut Nate. Hooray for the yorks! They've saved a ton of money. Of course now we can only field a half of team. How many daft picks do you guys think we have? We have no center, no qb, one ok corner, no NT, no starting caliber OlB. But hey, if we ever do decide to compete at least we'll have money. GTFO.
There's only a few irreplaceable players on this team. Why would we keep all the guys that were part of a 6-10 team? Clements is slow, plays dumb and jumps routes. He's completely replaceable as he was average at best. Let him walk along with Franklin, Alex Smith, and Manny Lawson.
I dont want to get this twisted. It's not that I think any one of those players are franchise caliber. However, I do think they are solid. In addition, I believe the guys behind them (T.Brown, RJF, Brooks/Haralson -remember we didn't sign Laboy) are 2nd stringers at best. And not to make this about Alex Smith, but David Carr is the worst QB I've seen in years. The point is, we are making all these moves/non-moves without a sure fire plan B (So it seems). Maybe they have a plan, great. However, we are leaving our team with a lot of holes and unless we get lucky (yeah I said) in the draft and go hard in FA, we are screwed.
Have you ever heard of the say, " You dont quit your job unless you already have one to replace it." That's how I see the Niners right now.
