Remember how soo long ago, we used to talk about how we didnt have stability at the line, now we have a beast in Iupati, so i dont care what we gotta do, make sure we keep him. Yes every once in a while he and Staley have a few breakdowns, but for the past two years, the line has been a distant thought, because they've been in beast mode, and i'd like to keep it that way.
LMFAO at people that undervalue guards in football. Every position is important and all has its own values in the football world folks. Guards with skill sets like Iupati don't come along often. He's like a Calvin Johnson for Guards. Remember when Chilo Rachal was one of our guards? Yeah, thats what I thought. When Rachal was our Guard all you folks was b***hing and moaning about our right side of the line and whining about how our right GUARD sucks and he's killing our QB. Iupati is a valuable player and he will get his extension. I'm sure the Niners are not stupid to let one of our best offensive lineman walk and let an unproven player protect Kaeps blind side, thats a recipe for disaster if you ask me. Aren't we all trying to protect the QB that we've been looking for for years and years? Especially after Iupati has good chemistry with J.Staley on protecting Kaep's blind side. Offensive Linemens are just like QB's with WRs, they need chemistry in order to succeed.
I keep hearing bout Kaep's salary next year, but lets see how he does this year before we talk about breaking the bank. If Baalke and company are soo good, they should be able to keep the QB's pocket pretty heavy, while still keeping some key players on staff.
