So if the fanbase says is makes sense, then Baalke should do it? Even though he knows more than all of us? He doesn't have to give in to cleveland, or the fans to make any move. If so, we wouldof signed Nnamdi in 2011, to a 60M deal, and be regretting it. Fans know s**t, stop acting like you and others know more than Baalke. It's ignorant, and no one takes you seriously due to bashing Phoenix in every thread you follow him into.
to think our team or any team for that matter makes moves based upon what the fans want is ludicrous. sometimes teams do things out of desperation because they are very bad and no one comes to their games ( our infamous OJ trade is right up there at the top of that list ) but i do chuckle of those people who think a Gm will do something because its "what the fans want"
Doesn't mean fans know whats best though. VD was a obvious choice, Eric Johnson wasn't gonna be here longer. Lawson made no sense in the end, he never fit in with our D.
Davis and Iupati was good, but fans wanted Bulaga, they blasted the pick when we traded up. I wanted Iupati and Pouncey, but Pouncey went 1 pick ahead of Iupati. We got the best players though, which is always good.
I doubt the FO listens to the fan base, unless you're team is below .500 or at .500. We are all wannabe GMs, I would love to see some moves be made. Especially in FA, I rather get a guy like Byrd next year, but wont happen, we need to lock up several players, Miller, Hunter, Culliver, Boldin, Kap, maybe Aldon, maybe Iupati, maybe Crabs, some form of those guys. They take higher order than anyone else.
I rather wait until draft night, and get 2 beast WRs, over 1 in Gordon, I dont trust him, like I have little faith in Aldon. Until they prove they are clean, I wouldn't give them deals, or trade for Gordon. It's a risk I wouldn't take. MM and Crabs come back, we are fine at WR, we dont use 4 WR sets, plus a run first team, and thats what we should be, Gore still has a ton left in the tank so to speak.
