Big surprise. Another stupid deal in a season full of stupid deals. Baalke is trash. But as we know, the Yorkies didn't want to pony up for a real GM.

What are you talking about?


He is saying it was a dumb move to sign Gore and Baalke is not fit to be GM and the Yorks dont want to pay a real GM.

No I got that bit. But what is it about this deal that supports that argument?


Bad move to extend an injury prone aging running back. We could have drafted a rookie who probably could have been the same or even better. This team is in full rebuilding mode and paying a guy like Frank only prolongs the process.

It's an argument. But even in full rebuild you need some leadership, some veteran presence. This is not a huge deal and it won't drag us into Salary Cap Hell, but it is good enough to send a message to the youngsters that this club is back into looking after it's players.

Gore is good for two, maybe three years. With a real receiving threat for once from Edwards, this could be an interesting O. Won't develop on day one but during the season.

See nothing about this contract to b1tch about. If Gore sat on his butt this season or forced a trade, presumably people would be whinging about how Baalke and the front office failed. They sign Gore to a reasonable contract and guess what?

You guessed.

there have definitely been problems in FO structure since the Nolan/McCloughan signing, that is for sure. I'm not sure if Jed is afraid of bringing in an outside guy, or doesn't know what to do, or if Baalke really is the man. Early returns on Baalke are definitely mixed, but there seems to be an understanding between he and Harbaugh, and there seems to be clear structure now. I hope it works out.

1) Good move to hold onto your best offensive player for reasonable money.

2) The draft is a crap shoot. Remind me again who the best running back from the 2005 draft was.

3) Not in full rebuild mode. I only see two new starters on offense. Even if we were rebuilding, keeping Gore is a good idea... you need guys like him on the team to show the youngsters how to work like a pro.

Your reasoning is one of several possible scenarios. It's possible. I don't agree. I believe that it's ignorance, as opposed to, fear. With a little bit of: Inability to attract a top caliber guy and convince him to come on board. BTW you have been overly critical: Who would you have suggested that they bring in?

He never rushed for 1000 yards in a season, he had 1700 yards for his career, lulz

1277 combined rushing and receiving yards in 1979 with 9 TD's.

Lulz that

A "1000 yard rusher" is someone who compiled 1000 Rushing Yards.

Yards from Scrimmage are not Rushing Yards, as they combine rushing yards with receiving yards.

So if a players 1000 yards were not solely rushing yards, they were not a "1000 yard rusher."

so: lulz.

yeah, but right now, this season, i am a better fighter for the sake of fighting. You were better, like, ten years ago, but you are a fighter for the sake of fighting in serious decline, which is why it was a mistake to give you a five year extension to fight for the sake of fighting. You will not fight for the sake of fighting until the end of that extension because for the sake of fighting I will fight you to the end of it.

What else? I opened my big mouth, said something wrong, and they promptly stomped all over my grave.

It's what one would expect from a frustrated 49er fan. They didn't even have the nerve to scrape the dog poop off first before stomping.
