if we had someone proven to take s place no.... but we dont. Our secondary is already the weakest part of our defense imagine if reggie smith and a still raw t. mays were our safties.

Spikes is 34 years old and we have 2 young ILB's on the team already. Plus given the available ILB's that are available right now, the 49ers can always sign someone.

all FA ILB's that can play the TED in a 3-4

P.S. Goldson is nothing special. I would rather sign Huff, Weddle or Landry.
hell to the no.


I'm not sad in the least that he's gone.
sad to see TKO as he was a good compliment to Willis.. however its time to let the young talent (i.e. Bowman or Mckillop) have playing time and a chance to grow as players.

i see no need to go into the FA for another stop-gap ILB.
He was a good player for us, but not worth another 3 years. We didn't draft Bowman that early just so he can sit on the bench for the next 3 years. This move made sense.

Totally agree
I gotta hope that P Willie is at the point where he is ready to assume the 1 on 1 mentor role to Bowman or McKillop now that he's been exposed to TKO.

Time for a little new blood at the position (I hope)

Not incredibly worried.

TKO is a guy who I've followed his career from afar -- just a very solid linebacker who I was excited to see in a 49er uniform.

That said, I could tell he is definitely on the twilight of his career, even if I do believe he's probably got a couple more good years in him.

As long as one of our young ILBs step up we'll be fine and I do expect us to sign a veteran "just in case". I do see a lot of promise in Bowman.

so, time will tell if this was a mistake.

Mixed feelings.
Pro:
He was a good leader and role model. Also very good against the run.

Con:
ILBs past the age of 34 tend to hit the wall rather quickly and with little warning.
He was a liability in coverage.

Summary: Sounds like a Walsh-esque move of allowing a player to leave with a little left in the tank as opposed to waiting until he had nothing and was just taking a roster spot.

Signing Ruud would be insane!!!
Why do people get so worried about losing guys like Takeo Spikes, Arnaz Battle, Michael Lewis, Etc. Yeah they're decent stop gaps but nothing to build a team around. They're the type of players that generally play on a number of teams.

You utilize their services while u can...then someone else over pays them a bit...you let go. It's just business.
