Yeahhhhhh Right! Some can disagree, but I mean come on. In the article today, Carr said he was gonna reach out and call Crabs. Reallllly!

He been in town for at least a week and he ain't come by yet.

Now I aint knocking him if he's practicing routes with other qb's and studying. Bu I mean come on, with this lockout crap, shouldn't he be with the team? I mean if not with Alex, he can catch passes from Kap, right.

No one knows when the lockout will end but living on another side of the U.S. or not, I just think more starters, especially on offense should be there.

Give me, Alex, Frank, Vernon, Morgan, Crabs, Ziggy, Ginn, Carr, Kap, plus 2 more wr's. That should be all the offense we need.
It seems like every other team in the NFL is actually holding players organized work outs that have far better attendance than ours. I've heard that some have organized mini OTA's where the entire team showed up. WTF why can't our players be more committed to winning? Instead they are all off on their own doing their own thing. With a mentality like this we will never be winners.

Sing brought in too many losers who talked really tough with him.

I honestly think Sing felt like he could motivate and inspire anyone. Maybe he could have, too bad his understanding of "x's and O's" went no further than hugs and kisses.

Yeah. He and Scotty mac kind of set this franchise back. Picks like Crabtree and Davis haven't worked out so far, and while I don't want to question the work ethic of these guys it sure seems like they arent exactly the most focused players. So we picked Crabtree and Davis and let guys like Brian Orakpo and Earl Thomas get away from us. If we had those 2 guys on our defense plus Willis, we might have a dominant defense. If we picked Bulaga(who grew up a 49ers fan I believe) over Davis we'd have a slightly less talented guy but we'd have someone who is way more technically sound and we'd have a guy who helped the Packers win a superbowl. Instead we wound up with a defense that's not good enough to make crucial stops and we have an offense that's talented but without discipline.

Sing and Mac pretty much took the exact OPPOSITE approach to the draft that Harbaugh and Baalke did. Harbaugh and Baalke put gold stars with players who seemed to love the game, although some of the players were still more raw IMO and could've been more ready to play. But it's an improvement over Sing/Mac strategy.

The only good first rounder these guys picked was Iupati who was a hard worker, talented guy, and technically sound. He came in and played well right away. Not too many picks from these guys have done anything good for us. Mike Iupati and Josh Morgan basically.

I am 100% a Vernon Davis fan, IMO the best TE in the league. f**k the fudge packer Buluga.

Is Chief drunk again?
It's difficult to tell how good the draft picks are when the coaching is terrible. I liked Bulaga but he did have some health concerns. As far as being behind other teams as a group of men...you think having leaders like Singletary and Nolan for six years would have a better result?

While Singletary could preach and sometimes turn guys around, VD, he did not have any tangible experience in directing a football team; and as others have said, knew little about Xs and Os. Nolan was an organizer but knew little to nothing about working with the offense.

So, the 9ers have lacked a true leader, or group of leaders, for years and you can't expect the players to understand the importance unless they are mature and committed to the team. The group practicing is.

Lastly, it is arguable that these unofficial team practices do little except bond players. Harbaugh and this excellent group of coaches will do that once he gets them into camp.

are we calling anthony davis who was what 20 yrs old last yr playing a tough position as not working out already??? yes he struggled but there were times as the season went on he showed promise, not ready to say he hasnt worked out. now crabtree i agree, i think he has tons of potential especially now with the wco harbaugh is gonna install but his f**king laziness and bs i dont need to play in preseason and i can workout alone in dallas pisses me off. so far 2 seasons in to me hes a lazy ass who doesnt work hard to unleash his potential.

weeks before the draft they were showing the show where rookies 1st get in the nfl and then there was another 1 and it had crabtree doing his so on so workout in dallas and all that fool does is take it easy and joking round

There is no doubt Davis and Crabs have raw talent, but so do the OLBs, DE and CB they will be facing every week. Raw talent may get you to the NFL, but it wont keep you there.

In other words, there is no doubt in my mind Davis can do it if he wants to, the question is, does he want to? Same with Crabtree.
