Meh, i aint even worried, the lockout pretty much screwed us and i dont expect the team to just throw money all over the place just because. We made a run at Nnamdi and Ochocinco and it didnt work out Oh well.
The only player im mad about losing was Clements
I still support Jed and Trent
With a new management and coaching, I'm willing to be patient. Sing had his chance and failed. Now we must give Harbaugh and Baalke that chance without the hysterics of every possible move that could've been made. This is an organization that has some nice parts, but is going to have to be built up to fit our new vision. This is a year of little expectations, which is nice for a change, because despite all the knee-jerk fans out there, we may actually find a nice foundation to grow into the future. Just chill the f**k out and stop giving people reason to call us whiners.
Stop making sense!
Thats exactly what ownership wants they hire a new coach every few years just to shut the fans up and make them keep paying inflated tickets prices and $30 to park in the mud.
Nothing really changes..............
Yup. This. We need new owners.
I posted this many times and we all need to figure out a way to make this happen. If anyone knows Larry Ellison we should set up a meeting and figure out a way to get the Franchise in his hands. There is a way the league can force an owner to sell due to incompetence. Larry Ellison could take the team, hire great football minds and that would be a good clearing house for a Rebuild. Start with the foundation and build from there instead of keep changing the Roof and Walls over and over again. I do care about the Niners and of course all of the Pollyanna folks will say you should support the team. This is the real way to support your team.
Lucky Sperm will never get this team on track.
jesus, Its been a few weeks and everyone has turned on the FO.
Everyone was excited about getting Harbaugh, thanks to Baalke.
Now cause we dont sign "Big names" which isnt always the best idea or "the popular names" all of a sudden we are gonna suck for years.
AGAIN, WE DONT BUILD THRU FA, WE BUILD THRU THE DRAFT.
We can thank twitter for the drastic turn.
What we knew after Harbaugh hiring:
-Niners not to go crazy in FA
-Niners build through the drafft
-likely go through a rebuilding year
-have several free agents that may leave (most of which are average at best, but severely overrated on the WZ)
-The longer the lockout goes, the more it will hurt the Niners.
-New offense, new defense, new GM, new HC, so don't expect too much in 2011.
For some reason, everyone forgot all of that. All of this lockout B.S. seriously messed with people's heads.
Exactly, people just get all excited when stupid schefter says the niners are making a push for nnamdi, then they go rabid when it doesn't happen. It's not like we're one good corner away from a superbowl anyway.
Why get a ton of FA's when they've made it quite clear that this year is mainly an evaluation year? With the lockout there's very little chance harbaugh will be able to fuly implement the system change he wanted to implement. So they move to a 2 year plan, no big deal.
Obviously they don't want to emphasize that point, because they always want to say that winning every year is important and avoid words like "rebuild". But actions(or lack of actions in this case) speak louder than words.
I don't think they'll tank it, but I think the season goes something like this:
-Alex starts, kaepernick watches the year unless alex gets hurt 2 years in a row.(which isn't that likely). I'm ok w/this because I think colin will be a good starter in 2012.
-They have to spend SOME cap, so they sign franklin, some CB most of us have never heard of, and whatever WR they can convince to come here lol.
- With all the rough patches of implementing a new system in a really short amount of time,the improving NFC west competition(minus seattle perhaps) and with us waiting for guys to step up to fill the voids left by all the "mediocre" starters who've left, we finish at about the same spot as we finished last year.(downgrades in last year's roster have mostly been negated by an improvement in coaching imo, but the increased competition in the nfc west keeps us from an 8-8 or higher season)
and I've got no problem with another crap season so long as we see some guys emerge into fantastic starters that we didn't expect to(anthony davis would be nice, same with mays, possibly josh morgan or another receiver, dixon perhaps, maybe even alex smith). The great thing about getting rid of some of those old mediocre players is there's chances for guys to prove themselves as starters, and not just mediocre starters but absolute beasts. A few beasts emerge on crap teams every year lol.
