Boone. He would have to kick out to either OT spot and Davis would replace him at guard. After that we have no one. Kind of scary. Really should of kept Person over Celek

I agree we should have a true back up Tackle, just imagine if Boone gets dinged early in a game and then we loose a Tackle later.
I know some will take this the wrong way, let alone to the extreme...but

Poor Josh Johnson...he really got played. I mean some must question Harbaugh's credibility when it comes to earning your role on a team.

I have liked Tolzien since we first got him...and I still do....but I don't know how I'd look Josh in the eyes as if something wrong didn't happen.

If making the team was based off training camp and preseason, it seems Josh would've got the nod. I wonder what is going through his head. It must've been a long shot for him to make the team since he got here.

well at least he is leaving here a better QB, imo...he looked good out there in his final appearance.

Only remember seeing Wiggins as RT, where I think Person had more ability as a LT or RT. Guess the fear is more about a LT backup, as we have more options at RT. I think Boone can step in at LT or RT just fine. He would be far better depth at those spots than what most teams have as an OT # 3.

Netter played LT in camp/preseason. And he can play Guard. I don't expect needing them, hopefully, if anything then we sign a veteran.

True enough on Netter. Still... I'd rather Boone slide out, as I think at either OT spot, he is much better right now than is Netter.

Agreed. Boone to either Tackle spots, then L.Davis at RG.

Arizona and SF each put in a waiver claim for former Dolphins LB Jamaal Westerman, who was awarded to Cardinals.

Looks like we're looking for LB help. I'm assuming Westerman is an OLBer.

So you've been to each practice during training camp to make this assessment? All you do is read articles and watch preseason games and you now feel you have the right to question harbaugh? Come on man.

What facts do you have? Can you with any confidence back up your assertion that it was obvious Josh Johnson was the better player through the preseason? Are you basing your opinion off your perception of the preseason games? I just don't understand how you can with any credibility state that Johnson was the better of the two.

The fact is you can't, you have no idea what happened during the training camp, and with such an unstable foundation you still found it logical to question the Head Coach's credibility? I understand questioning and theorizing who you thought was better but you really crossed the line when you asserted a serious accusation of integrity with no credible evidence.

Not at all. He came in here knowing that he was at least the #3 QB behind Smith and Kaepernick. He had every chance to make the squad. He had a few good throws but also some really bad ones...all this was reminiscent of his time in Tampa. It should have been a good clue as to his inconsistency when Freeman was really struggling and the coach would not even try Johnson. He may hook on with someone somewhere but he clearly has not shown enough to be more than a #3, IMO.

Johnson was insurance in case Kaepernick did not progress and become a legitimate #2.

However the team clearly saw positive things out of Kaep and Tolzien and was comfortable letting JJ go. I'll trust Harbaugh on this one.

We didn't get to watch TC practice, and the defense didn't remark on how well JJ was playing. They were all over Tolzien's nuts, so he must have been pretty impressive in practice.
