Thanks.
Odd bit of triva. For New Orleans their center, last night, was Brian De La Puente, one of our practice squad people from a year or two ago. So hopefully Kilgore will develop into a bonafide Center and will be ready to take over soon. But I am happy that our line is getting more productive. These next three games will tell us a lot about our team.

I think Boone signed a five-year, $7.450 million contract in December of 2011. This was a four extension of his contract.

He should be a free agent in 2016.
I wonder what we are going to do with guys like Looney? Outside of injury, no way he gets on the field. Its a good problem to have, but this years draft seems like a real head scratcher....

If he keeps it up, we got the deal of a life time.

Agree and I can see Kilgore and Looney being with this line for a long time, either at center or RG if Boone needs to move to OT. With injuries so likely no team should be without seven guys ready to play in any game. If they never play...that would be a good thing, means the current lineup is healthy and playing lights out. At some point FAcy may take its toll but Baalke/Harbaugh seem to have a handle on this.

Following a tripping penalty on Walker, the 49ers faced third and 10 at their own 3-yard line. The call was a handoff to Kendall Hunter, who was supposed to follow his blocks left. The Bills, however, clogged the left side and Hunter cut back to the right where he found enough space to pick up the first down. The reason he had so much space to the right? Davis had blocked Mario Williams, responsible for back-side pursuit, practically out of the television screen. Later in the quarter, left tackle Joe Staley was blocking Williams one-on-one on the touchdown toss from Alex Smith to Michael Crabtree. Smith, who had been sacked 12 times heading into Sunday, was not sacked at all by the Bills. He had nearly four seconds to throw on the touchdown to Crabtree.

The article give mad props to Anthony Davis.....I really proud of that dude. He caught a lot of heat on these boards his rookie year and even until recently.
These are eye-popping stats:

According to PFF: over 8 yards a carry on runs between the tackles. In another article, only 93 of the 311 rushing yards came after contact. That's an average of 5.7 yards before they were touched.

WOW!!!!
Trust a QB who got sacked 361 times (18th all time) to make sure the best possible O-line is built for the team he coaches.

Those 2 back to back conversions on 3rd and 10 from our own goal line were really impressive. By the way who hasn't taken heat from the arm chair GMs on here? Anthony, Aldon, Vernon, Crabtree, Alex, Culliver, Frank Gore (when drafted), etc. Dang near every one of our picks was written off or question. Not sure why people didn't realize that Anthony was raw, and only 20 years old with potential. People expected him to come in from day one and dominate. Granted I was one who thought if he didn't step up this year it might be time to think about moving him to guard but I wasn't ready to call him a bust or throw him aside like a lot of people where. I actually think we would still have had a really good right side if Boone went to RT and Davis at RG.

After we drafted him, I said to not be surprised if he is better than Iupati in a few years. He's becoming the next Jonathan Ogden. So much for the Dallas third round grade. They WISH they had him right about now.

The reality is, we can't sign all of our players in the coming years. Maybe we let Iupati walk (after some team offers him 60 mil) and then sign Davis, play him at LT, then move Boone over to LG?
