With Baas to the Giants, what does that mean for us?

We just can't find any stability on the line. Our already volatile and underwhelming line just got sent into a tailspin with a massive hole at C.

It's amazing how we've been so unable to put our players in the best position to succeed. This is most evident in Baas:
1. We draft him at the top of the 2nd round after he dominated as a C in college.
2. We move him to guard where it doesn't work for 4 years.
3. We then move him to C only because circumstances necessitated the move and then he goes to have his best season and subsequently leaves to the Giants.

Without Baas, who are our best options? Kilgore? Pearson? A FA? Baas was the best FA C available.

Adam Snyder was our center for Camp Alex. I think he puts all his reps now there starts at center in September.
would we start the rookie c from stanford who is already familiar with harbaughs system?

baas was above average at C except for the beautifully hicked ball ten yards over alexs head
Dude we don't win games, we don't pay for GOOD players, and we are unable to cut the f**kign cord from Alex Smith and I'm sure the entire league can see that, knowing we wont go anywhere with him at qb. Why would anyone sign here?
I think we go fishing for a free Agent now, How can you not? Snyder is the first back up at 3 out of 5 line postions and the kids are all later round and non drafteds that need time to develop. The Cowboys and Giants are tossing linemen in the street like they are a dime a dozen...time to make some phone calls.
I went to the Giants website they have not announced the deal yet maybe some hope left...
Sh!t, I knew after TKO left there would be some more. This one is going to hurt too...
I think before we start full panic mode, there needs to be understanding that OC was important but can be replaced. There are better centers out there on the market even now and we haven't even officially arrived at signing day.

I'm not worried about OC at all, I'm more concerned about NT. Stability on the line would have been jeopardized anyway with the strong possibility of Rachal being benched and being replaced by Snyder.

When you say "we drafted ..." let's be clear who did the drafting and why. Baas was taken at the top of the 2nd round with the hope he would be able to create protection for Smith. That didn't really come through and Baas has only been healthy for the past season at center. I couldn't see the team getting into a big bidding war for a OC with only one year of complete health behind his belt.

I don't know but OC again I think are the least of our worries.
Adam Snyder? Daniel Kilgore? Person?

Havent got the slightest clue what the plan Harbaugh was talking about, is.
Heitman back as our starter?

out for the year after neck surgery
We are building through the draft. LOL
Is anybody else wondering why we let bass go? was he not that good for us? did he want to much?

I mean...we dont have heitman this year? so..what gives?

THis confuses the junk out of me. If we lose anymore guys, i'm going to start thinking baalke may not be the right man for the job. You can't just let talent walk out the door without even trying...

I would have thought, release clements, sign bass, goldson, and mcdonald. I dont get paid millions to make those calls though...so...i will just go back to playing madden and shut up.

Guess NYG offered him a crazy deal he couldn't turn down.
