Alex Smith, our starting QB, has shown mere flashes of competent QB play during his time here and is now backed up by a rookie.
With Nolan and singletary's brilliance, and injuries to fight through, I'll give Smith another shot with a real qb minded coach.
Frank Gore is nearing 30, holding out, and coming off a serious injury.
It's just a bluff move to get the organization's attention, at his age he doesn't need training camp or preseason anyway. I'll get worried if he starts missing games.(which he won't, because he'll just lose more and more money). He's still our best RB option until we know what hunter and dixon can truly do, and they both show enough hope for the future.
Crabtree is our best WR, has underperformed thus far, and will miss TC for a third straight year.
I agree here but hopefully we'll get Floyd or another talented WR. Floyd put up crabtree-like stats starting 5 fewer games.
The 49ers have lost, and will likely lose more, valuable veteran talent at key positions; and have yet to attract any free agents at areas of huge concern.
Patience. We've "lost" clements(expensive/sucks), TKO(replaced by a younger/better bowman), maybe franklin(sopoaga is a decent enough replacement).
The secondary is an absolute joke in a QB driven league.
Hence we need asomugha.
Head Coach is unproven.
so is the rest of our team, so? He shows more promise than dingleberry or nolan. At least he knows we need a passing game unlike mike, and knows how to coach qb's.
GM was promoted from within, and has done an average-at-best job at talent evaluation so far.
Like there were a ton of better candidates out there willing to take on that suicide of a job. A lot of his picks are too early to really make that judgment. Plus baalke basically seems to just do whatever the coach suggests with first round picks(like singletary's two OL picks and harbaugh's kaepernick pick+fangio's OLB pick). Better that than a GM like Al davis who picks random guy's based on who he "likes".(especially his phase where he used to pick based on 40 times).
Ownership cares more about a new stadium than winning games.
Now we're just getting into the whining. Where do you get this idea? They made sure to get the highest valued coach on the market, a change from their past, and seem to be working hard to get us a top CB(just wait). Winning games will make it A LOT easier to get that arena built and(more importantly) filled.
Patrick Willis. Vernon Davis. Mike Iupati. Justin Smith. Memories of former glory. That's all we've got.
+Frank gore, tons of unproven talent(which is still talent nonetheless), and whoever we sign this offseason.
Bunch of f**king debbie downers around here. [/b]
