And enough b***hing and support the damn team. I am so sick of everyone being mad cause we lost Baas, Spikes. Didnt get Nnamdi, he wanted to be on a winner, and frankly he took less to go to Philly, and I dont blame him.
Amen, brother! I liked Larry Grant and am glad to have him back. Next time a team wins a Super Bowl via mass f/a signings I'll change my tune but that generally ends badly and we're NOT 'one player away' to where a guy like Nnamdi would have got us there. I'm still bummed Spikes is gone, but football is back and I'm interested to see what an upgrade at COACH will do for our current squad.
I agree! Lets go into the season 28 million under the cap and get our asses handed to us, but hey, at least we stuck to our principles and didn't over pay....(for ANYBODY).
What is wrong with over paying for a guy or two? We are not talking doubling what other teams are paying, we are talking about an extra 10 percent of FMV. As a FA, all things being equal, i wouldn't come to the Niners.
AB, being that the cap is your specialty isn't it true that every year players make more and more? And players that are less talent may make more than better players at their position because those other players signed a contract a couple years ago. I'm pretty sure within a year or two Willis will no longer be the highest paid ILB even if he is the best. My point, you can't always compaire current contracts with past contracts, because the inflation factor runs rampaid in the NFL.
