I think our best chance has passed.
Baalke has been great and getting 2 good draft picks for Smith was incredible but he's made 2 mistakes this offseason. The first was letting Tom Gamble leave and take a lateral position with the Eagles. The 2nd was not placing the franchise tag on Goldson. It's fine if he didn't want to give Goldson a longterm commitment but with a team ready for another super bowl run you don't start to go with rookies or players who don't know your system. Should've franchised Goldson and drafted his repacement to learn for a year. Goldson is as good as gone and Baalke let the wrong safety get out of town.
You mean they are letting go of ONE of our best players..........
In case you didn't notice, the Niners will still have Kaep, Gore, Crabtree, V. Davis, Willis, Bowman, A. Smith, J. Smith, and the entire offensive line.
And where are you coming up with this run against lesser opponents BS? The NFC West is now one of the best divisions in football and they beat the Packers, Patriots, Saints and Falcons on the road. This is not a "missed window" team.
