Because it's quite clear that whoever is involved clearly didn't like what he saw here in terms of our own players, and allowed everyone to leave as a FA, not to mention not going after anyone in FA.

They are not gutting the team, they are not paying the high price tags for the players that have not produced.

Nor are they paying the market for FA players at positions of need, having whiffed on the top 4 or 5 CBs.

agreed: this article really calmed me down: http://blogs.sacbee.com/49ers/archives/2011/08/aubrayo-franklin-bolts-for-the-big-easy.html

Soap is fine inside, I liked Brooks and Aldon outside, and hopefully grant/or bowman can step up and play. Corner is my main worry but we still have a few weeks to find a fix.
They might as well shop VD and Pat around the league to see what they can fetch for them because this looks like a full rebuild.

Yup, I have no problem with a REAL rebuilding year. In the past decade, our rebuilding process was missing a REAL head coach and a REAL QB to lead it. Harbaugh is the first piece of the puzzle, and either Kap or someone like Andrew Luck or Matt Barkley in next year's draft could be the QB we need.

So if we have to tear it ALL down to build it back up bigger and stronger, I'm all for it. I'm a Niner fan for life, not just for a decade or year-to-year.

Rebuilding is when you keep a few stars to keep butts in the seats while you gut everything else.

Some teams rebuild and trade for a star. Gore, VD and Willis are not going anywhere....unfortunately for them

Damn, someone making sense.

Like Ive said, u dont overpay mediocre players just to keep them, thats how u get into cap hell.

And now with a lower cap threshold, teams must budget better.

For those wonder about Jenkins, Babin and Nnamdi's deals, Babin is making 4M this yr, no more than 6M in each yr.

Nnamdi, 10M this yr, not sure on rest. And Jenkins is a 1yr 4M deal basically, it is a voidable deal basically.

Clements is getting 3m a year. Lawson and Franklin signed one year deals for the same I believe. Bass is the only one of our FA's that got a nice contract. Every other player got a reasonable contract and certainly not "high priced".

They are gutting the team.

we aren't rebuilding anything. we have lost 4 defensive starters (yes starters but most of them role players at best) and Crabtree will be out a while. We didn't upgrade anything but you are way off if you think this is a rebuild.

He is a politician, he has advisors. His advisors told him the majority of the fans don't want to rebuild.

What did you think he was going to say?

Yeah, corner is my only worry about the team right now. Every other position has someone ready to step in and show their worth. Corner could too, but it's just a lot of unknown there. I believe in our coaching staff though. They want to win as much as we want them too. If they feel there's a problem, they'll try their damnedest to fix it.
