Just a draft some wideouts.
Instead of paying for free agent wideouts. Lets upgrade the secondary
we can get a younger fa corner than Rogers like Tracy Porter.
Resign Brooks and Grant and franchise Goldson. Dump Haralson and sign Robert Mathis
or we could dump Brooks and sign Mario Williams. To hell with all this offense.
We could dominate again on defense. If Trent Dilfer and Brad Smith can win a SuperBowl, I know Alex Smith can with
that defense. What do you think?
This is a much more sensible approach in regards to going defense as opposed to spending money on some big name wideout. We can add a top flight receiver that MIGHT work out, or try as hard as possible to resign our own guys who want to be back and are looking forward to building what we have started.
I've been championing Robert Meachem or Mario Manningham on other threads, but if it costs us any of our key free agents (Goldson, Rogers, Brooks, Ginn, or Morgan), I'm against it. Each player did their part to make the 49ers the most complete team in the NFL. With the potential of being even better next season, this team can become one that is truly feared. Not because we are going to drop 40 a game on you. But because one or two of your players may be knocked out- literally.
Defense and special teams is the strength of the 49ers now and you don't weaken or dilute that strength for something/someone expensive that might work. So I'm on board if they bring as many, if not all of the key FA back, have money to extend guys like Navorro Bowman after next season, and use the draft to add some pieces to our offense. We are not in need of an Andre Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald. We just need a guy that can help us move the chains, keep drives alive (no. 1 ) and a deep threat (no. 2).
