Trent Baalke on FAs: “They’re looking for situations that bring them into a winning place. And that’s what we need to establish."
Question answered: NO, they don't want to play for the 49ers.
This is what I've been trying to say for the past 48 hours. We finally hear it from the man himself. It's not that ownership is cheap. The marquee free agents do not want our money. We need to establish a winning culture by drafting well first, before we make a splash in free agency. Don't believe me? Look at the Colts, Steelers, Eagles, Patriots, Packers.
A little problem with your theory. If the team is picking top 5 again. I don't see players eager to join them next year either. You can't build a winner by making your roster thinner.
Unless we win the division and go to one playoff game like the Hawks, i said in another thread that we'd be in the same boat next year as this year. WE cant say oh losing season 7, then wait build through the draft again with more rookies at key spots.
My wife said to me yesterday, why dont u just pick another team, and she doesnt even like football. No one think its bad when reporters on ESPN, NFL network, Beat writers, and bloggers alike are all talking about how bad we are right now. Who would want to come here, know what i mean.
As i said playoff bound or we'll be having these same discussions next year.
