i thought about this also lmao

it's overwhelmingly bad reactions
I honestly wouldn't be surprised to learn that Baalke could have gotten a better offer from another team but the 49ers wanted to do right by Alex and sacrifice a little bit of value but send Alex somewhere he would be happy going to. Once they got a satisfactory offer from the Chiefs they closed the book and weren't fielding any more offers. Maybe that's what that dinner was about, to ask Alex if he was cool with going to KC?

All speculation of course. We don't actually know if the reports are true or not yet.

Chiefs feel that with Andy Reid as coach and with what talent they have and what they give up to get Smith they can instantly contend for the division and I think they can without mortgaging their future on an unknown commodity. It is a good trade for them despite what the idiot fans may think. It aint like what OAK gave up for Palmer to CIN. Geez!!

AS will have the chiefs as instant playoff contenders in that division.

LOL Please send me some of that good stuff you are smoking.

That chiefs team is ready to roll with AS under center. He fits nearly perfect there.

From you comments you would think that Alex Smith is the Hall of Fame and SB winning QB and Manning is the guy that very few teams really want.

so who will get pegged for doing this too early, us or the chiefs? isnt this tampering? lance briggs b******t with the bears we lost a pick

No one. We got busted because McCloughan started contract negotiations (via text) before any trade had been agreed upon. He was testing Briggs' expectations, and the Bears got butt hurt.

I wonder how good of a job that guy could have done sober.
Alex Smith to the Chiefs for a 2nd I'd put good money om it if I were a gambler.

Because we are not bargaining from a complete position of strength. Everyone knows that Kap is our guy, if we do hold on to Alex, that prevents us from extending guys like Dashon or signing Free Agents. We are lucky that Alex is the best on the market and that the QB draft class blows, otherwise we might be getting worse offers or none at all.

Meh. But we can comfortably hold on to both as Kap is still playing under his rookie deal and makes next to nothing. Him being "our guy" means nothing once you consider that. Basically, we CAN afford to play hardball if Baalke really wanted to but he doesn't seem like that type. For one, the risk is too great that it blows up in his face because really, who's going to give up two number one's (or something equally ridiculous) for Smith?

I get the impression that once the FO attaches a value to a player, they tend to stick with that. No need for games.
Liking this "Peyton's Princess" dude on the Chiefs board. Feel bad for him trying to single-handedly convince the delusional Chiefs fans who think the world will end if they trade for Smith.


Chiefs fans apparently would b***h about anyone who wasn't Geno Smith. They're so incredibly f**king delusional and it's absolutely priceless. Can't stop reading this s**t.
If this is true, kudos to the front office. They got a deal that gives Alex Smith his chance to start again and they net something in return. Good job, Trent. With all the picks the Niners have, anything in return for Smith is a good deal and getting it done now is just a bonus.

Of course we can hold on to both but as you noted, no one is going to sell the farm for Alex, so why should we pretend to play hard ball when everyone knows that we want to trade Alex and that it would be terrible for the locker room if we did hold on to him? The money owed to Alex is not overwhelming amongst QBs, however it is top end money for most other positions in this league. Everyone knows we are best served trading Alex, keeping him prevents us from improving as a team by allocating his salary elsewhere.

Hmm...if teams listened to fans the 49ers would have hired Michael Lombardi as GM two years ago, and Jon Gruden (bleh) or Brian Billick as head coach (shudder). Also, we likely wouldn't have Aldon Smith on the team because Gruden sure as hell isn't about to waste a number pick on a defensive player, and Brian Billick needs to draft about ten quarterbacks before he can get it halfway right.

In case you missed it, the overall point is good front offices don't need input from the fans.

This deal has been done since Baalke had dinner with Alex and his wife.

They'll announce it March 12th and Alex will have an extension in place in Kansas City.

When did this dinner take place?
Around 6pm, typical dinner time.

I don't think it would be tampering if they are dealing with the team. Knowing how Baalke handled the Mays trade he would have probably sent an email to the whole league and waited for the phone to ring.
