Baalke has dropped the ball in free agency as far as the secondary is concerned. We couldn't afford Rogers-Cromartie or Talib on a 1 year 5 million dollar deal? The weak link on the team is only weaker with no help in sight. Other then Anquan Boldin the 49ers have done nothing in free agnecy. We could've used the money he spent on Skuta and Dahl and brought in one of those CB's. I could've drafted Tyrann Mathieu and made him a better special teams player then Dahl. Baalke's failure to address the secondary is just dissapointing, We'll be one of the teams in the next 5+ years that's good but never gets over the hump. We fail to address our biggest weakness every offseason. Waited 2 years to address a second WR,never added defensive line depth, and next offseason we'll still be talking about how weak the secondary is. When you have a weakness you address it and move on. You don't go cheap and move on. The Seahawks needed another playmaker and they traded for Harvin. We have a BIG need at FS and we sign Craig Dahl. We have a need for a big CB so we lowball Asomugha and let him take other visits. Monday we'll find out that he signed with NO for 1 year and 3 million dollars. Like it or not the Seahawks are the better team at this time. If we lose the division the Super Bowl dream is over. The 49ers aren't going into Seattle and win a playoff game.
I agree completely with all of this. Against many wishes on here I think at this point I would have to really step up efforts to move on Revis, I think more so now because of the all around gains Seattle has made on both sides of the ball. They can't afford to play games with musical secondary or trial and error.
