Whats the point we all know what he will say...
Insert backhanded compliment then quickly turn to next offseasons free agents + one year contracts and talk about how that will be the measuring stick of his tenure... even though every off season has an avalanche of free agents (see: last offseason) and every team gave out an abnormally high amount of one year contracts due to the lockout, making the market once again flooded. Some teams will identify "their guy" and overpay, while others will once again let the market dictate value.
The best part is not overpaying last offseason allowed the niners to see who excels in the current systems and now the team can reward players like Rogers, and Goldson so far with big contracts because they proved their worth within the system. It also helps the franchises culture of rewarding their own players, rather than spending big money on big names in new schemes.
