I already stated my opinion about the guy and I feel its(his name) is not justified whether this forum holds more then US citizens or not. Not all Europeans believe in Socialism or Communism or other. Some would say that because of Socialism and the creation of the Euro, Europe has only gone down hill while China becoming more capitalist in how it handles its economy has become more powerful then even the US who is also under a socialistic regime with Barack Obama. But as you can see his name can bring out Non Football topics and this Forum is for Football not for politics or economics so I will stop here and I will not speak of it no more. Sorry if I just added more kinley to the fire.
I will state that we should not trade Willis for Luck. I think Luck will be a good QB but he is not worth such a trade and I don't think he will work out on the 49ers team. I do understand that he was coached by Jim and because of such chemistry good things could happen. But I feel with our 2 rookie QB's we already have and with a Solid QB in Alex Smith who is getting better every week. It would be in our better interest to improve other parts of our team that are in higher need. Like getting some improvements in our Secondary, OLine, WR's and what ever else that is weak on our team. Also I like Hunter but i'm unsure if he would make a good replacement for Gore so we might want to think about that as well.
Your first paragraph belongs in the Parking Lot. That is where the political and other arguments go.
Indeed it does hence my point on the name :P
@ ninerfan29 - best way to deal with it is not to respond to him/her. No one knowes if Luck is going to succede or not. There have been lots of QBs that have come in highly touted that have failed. Its a crap shoot when selecting any player in the draft. So it would be crazy to make that trade.

There is no way they get rid of Alex Smith. He's even starting to hit those nice rainbows. If Davis catches that one in the end zone last Sunday, Alex Smith ends up with 335 yards, 3 TD's and no interceptions. What more do you want in a QB. It's the only thing that has been missing from his game and he's just starting to dial it in. Prediction: by the end of this season, no sane person will be even entertaining the idea of trading away Alex Smith to get Andrew Luck. Norv Turner said it years ago: Alex Smith can make every throw. He's like a faster, quicker Troy Aikman. He may not look tough, but think about it - he's tough as nails. He absorbs 9 sacks in a game and never so much as glares at his O-linemen. He never yells at a receiver. He never complains. He just keeps on coming. He's smart and careful. He takes care of the ball. He moves around and scrambles for first downs. He's getting a lot more accurate. He's always thrown a beautiful looking long pass and now he's beginning to tune that part of his game with this playbook. He now has the continuity and the coaching he's always needed. I'm pretty sure the Niners brass didn't expect this level of growth in Smith working with Harbaugh, but now that they've got it, there is no way they let him go.
That's what worries me. I read MM's article regarding JIm Leavitt, but towards the end he talks about Greg Roman.
"Greg Roman, in his first season as 49ers offensive coordinator, would also be a logical college head-coaching candidate. He said he has not been contacted by any schools with vacancies."
According to Jim Harbaugh, the Niner's offense is a Greg Roman offense.
Eh, Jim Harbaugh is being a good boss: he takes the blame and gives all the credit to his subordinates. Good bosses want to see their people elevated and do well for themselves. Harbaugh is setting up Roman for an NFL HC gig.

top 10 is average at best?
Top ten my butt; Alex Smith has nothing top 10 about him. Except he doesn't throw int's. Now if you are talking about the future of Kaps being top 10? I agree
How can you say that Kaps who you don't even know as hes only played on college and a few snaps this year can be a future top 10. But completely diss Alex Smith and say he has nothing top 10 about him? Can you explain to me what makes Alex so bad that he isn't top 10 material?
