Not saying it's a huge deal, but I hope the Niners are at least out there today plugged into what certain teams are trying to unload.

You think the Seahawks would trade Curry, who knows their entire defensive scheme and calls, to a team inside the division? uhh nah

curry is a raider

Fair point, but I still think it's an illustration of the value buys you can make at the deadline.

you must not follow how baalke works, he builds threw the draft.

But does his philosophy change at all when the team transitions from "rebuilding" to "maintaining/reloading"?

We tried trading for Lloyd but he told the Broncos he didnt want to come here

Bay Area rappers probably punked him and said he was whack.

curry doesnt fit on this team, he isnt a pass rusher (less than 10 sacks in about 50 college games) and he wouldnt even see the field as an ILB on this team, grant is a fine backup ILB.....plus giving up a 4th or 5th means u could miss out on another great player like a bowman or mcdonald (both mid rounders in recent years)

I'd be really curious to know if there are any experienced-but-not-old OL out there for a 4th or 5th round pick. Our depth feels shaky.

Right, you could miss out on those gems. But I think that, as a contending team, there are circumstances where it would make more sense to get a proven NFL player at age 28 halfway through a season than to wait until April to get a 22 year old who has an even money chance of getting cut.

Id be for that. The Raiders obviously will need some picks.

u used curry as an exmaple, he wouldnt even see the field on this team, please enlighten us as to where he'd play and who'd go to the bench
interesting he wanted to bring Lloyd here and was willing to give up a higher pick than the Rams did. Our team is fine right now. no need to give up draft picks now, we are 5-1

Lloyd doesnt fit this scheme. He is a run to the zone and wait receiver, not the physical presence we want. Great hands, but why waste a 6th round pick for a #3 receiver for 10 games. He is a free agent at the end of the season and with the way this team has been nailing late round picks lately, better off keeping the pick.

Remember we are still building a foundation here, not adding to a championship team. Building for the future does not mean trading draft picks for 10 games of production if he can even pick the offense up fast enough to start after the bye. As a fan I'm not interested in a one year wonder, I want the niners to have a competitive team year in and year out, trading away picks is the opposite of what we should be doing.

We seems to have a difference of opinion on the value of a 6th round pick, which I see as very hit or miss. By contrast, I would hold onto 2nd and 3rd round picks like my firstborn son. I actually do think it's worth it for 10 games (you keep forgetting the playoffs) of production from a proven WR, the weakest part of our game right now.
