Originally posted by stefano89:i really dont understand this hype cuz thats all it is is hype. this rumor has been goin around the boards an fans since before the draft. there wsnt even one point this offseason where we were "thin" at safety unless for some reason you think a position requiring 2 starters needs 8 backups which is the logic behind many people here obviously. pre-draft we had i think 3 maybe 4 backups. we now have more than 6 backups....people the safety position is 2 starters...how are WE THIN?? i dont get it, we are stocked with people fighting for the safety position yet people still wanna talk like were thin there. common sense people common sense
I don't think you know too much about the players at the position who are listed as our backups. Hell, with your post, I don't think you know very much about the safety position in general. You cannot just plug n play with just any backup. Injuries can happen not only in games but also can happen a month before the season begins.
So in review, I wonder how long you have been a fan of the Niners. There is not much proven depth at safety, bottomline. Its far from "stocked." Just because Colin Jones came in and played receiver last year doesn't mean he's ready to be our last line of defense.
(Although, tell me that wasn't a sick touchdown reception Colin Jones had against the Eagles last year??)
