Craig Dahl

Really? Thanks for the education, glad we have you to reassure how the core of a team is built. Adding a player in free agency, key word "A", to the secondary isn't asking to break the bank or expect unrealistic contract offers. It's obvious who needs to be signed and who we need cap space for. So I can just disregard a concern for the current secondary because "we have a ton of picks" sorry, there's still a hole in the defense that could use veteran leadership with more skill than what is currently on the roster. What impact do you think one of the ton of draft picks will have as a rookie this year?..

You're condescending response could easily be applied back to you...

How about the fact that you've spent a considerable amount of time on an internent message board, attempting to correct a move made by an NFL FRONT OFFICE. Make sure you copy and paste all of these replies to your resume when you apply next season.

You're a shoe-in...

I'm really coming around to the idea of Craig Dahl signing.

Gives us an insider on the nuts and bolts of the Rams defense

I predict he's a very good special teamer for us, Though I doubt he's even the first saftey off the bench, but good to have around
as a player with experience and from what ive read good leadership/field coach intangibles

if nothing else it improves the special ed teams we had last year and that is worth it to me.maybe not to those who are slitting their wrists because we have not over payed for a 37 year old safety but those are the same people who are either unable, unwilling or just forgot that we tend to build using the draft. those are the same people who would have no problem plopping down a gazillion dollars on a couple of sexy free agents and then all of a sudden roll out the shock and awe campaign in a year (see what is happening with the ravens and the money given to joe) when we have to purge the roster and get rid of aldon smith and others

Youre right "special ed" describes our ST in the super bowl perfectly :-P

...and Trent trusts his coaching staff...which may be able to take this guy to the next level...

...and another thing...if we know one thing about the Niners these days is that no roster spot is guaranteed. If they find a better player, that guy will make the team over Dahl.

So...just breathe everybody...and quit your b*tchin'...

1 ) Kaep and Russell are not good examples. They're both on their rookie contracts. Dahl was a free agent signing for depth. Completely different situations. Kaep will cost a lot to re-sign, as will Crab, Aldon, and others. This factored into the decision to let Goldson and the others go. The team is preparing for future extensions to younger players who are more important to the teams future. Sorry, but YOUR logic is utterly ridiculous.

2 ) Under perfect circumstances, Goldson would be brought back with no regards to money or future sustainability. That's not how the NFL works, that's not how free agency works. You can only carry so many high dollar, long-term contracts. Also, the 49ers felt too much money is being invested in the defense, and that it was not sustainable long-term. They are absolutely right. Goldson could have been re-signed, but it would have had future ramifications in our ability to re-sign other core players. You point to Alex's situation in 2011, which is a very poor example. Alex was on a 1 year prove it deal. Dashon was looking to cash in on a fortune. 1 year $5 mil < 5 years $42 mil. Big difference.

3) Let me ask you....who had the bigger impact in the playoffs, Boldin or Goldson? Losing Goldson hurts, but I'll take Boldin (1 yr $6 mil), and a 1st round safety (4 yr $7 mil), over Goldson (5 yr $42 mil) every time. It's all about maximizing what you can get for your money. Goldson is very good, but he's not THAT superior to what we can get at a fraction of the cost. The team needs to carefully allocate money into the offense and defense, and they have to wisely choose which players get the big money deals. This has nothing to do with rebuilding. This is a very talented team with many players worthy of big money, but it's just impossible to pay them all. Someone has to go, it was inevitable. To me, they've handled this situation brilliantly.

Nice work, King. You and I are on the exact same page.

Great take! Right on the money.

Great take. We already had one of the most expensive defenses in the league. Boldin is a bargain even if for just one year. So many on here forget that there are several key players coming up for a new contract soon.
chiefs fans talking alex

niner fans talking Dahl

pretty much the same reaction


Like I said not worried about it, can't wait for the draft!
