Is Alex Boone at Guard the best roster move this year, so far?

I think the best roster move we made was Mario and keeping KWs

and not putting #7 in anymore

Agree. Two very good moves for sure.

I have to go with Boone. This offensive line looks completely different line this year. Aldon Smith is handling the transition well. I'd actually like for us to draft a guy at OLB and play the role that Smith did last year- a pure pass rushing specialist on 3rd down. Either that, or a few more blitzes by the LBs. We have the athleticism at that position to get even more than we have out of that group.

I'm very pleased with the way Aldon is playing. He's such an asset to have. I would deff love to draft just a pass rusher as well to play on 3rd downs
What in the heck are you guys talkinga about? Aldon is an elite passrusher. You would take him off the field on 3rd downs for a rookie? If anything I'd put the rookie in on 1 and 2 and throw Aldon back on 3rd.....
Nices to see Boone grow into a nices starter! Must go with Aldon !
Tukuafu at FB..he doesnt have ice's size but he's more nasty.. playing solid..
Boone's been treatin lineman and linebackers like they were police cars of course its our best move hands down lol

All joking aside i think we have the best run blocking line in the league not to mention a guy at TE who plays like a RT.

Pains me to agree, but I must. Aldon is fine... yes, elite. Just not smart to put the man in much coverage.. at all. Disjointed 4-3? So f**king what?

Boone has been SO laughably better than Snyder/Rachal... thanks SO much AlexB. .. as good or even better than I predicted!

Yes, Boone up to this point has clearly been the best roster move.

What I find most striking is minor uproar this move created.
A fair number of posters felt that making Boone the starting guard would be a mistake.

was his 6' 7.5" height.... not a usual thing........ Me? Never had a doubt.

Another potential probowler on the oline
Boone is to this year as to what Miller was to last.

Yeah i Agree...but who do we sit down on 3rd down? Or do you just do it on really obvious passing downs?

If you want a pass rush specialist for 3rd downs only then it's better to get a defensive end then an OLB.
