2013 TRAINING CAMP THREAD

I'm not saying he is a LB.

He is essentially playing the same position as aldon does on passing downs. If we wanted we could utilize what I consider a valuable asset. Subbing him on passing downs for either brooks or aldon would allow hm to do what he's most comfortable doing. We have a wealth of pass rushing on the edge with the inclusion of Carradine. I think the best way to ease him in to the system is putting him in on the edge. Idk. Maybe he can dominate in the middle as well but regardless he looks unblockable on the edge.

We have solid OG options to plug in, if Boone has to slide to an OT spot due to injury. So let's just keep him as our starting G/swing T. He's young, and has another 3 years on his cheap contract.

Excellent point. Staley has some injury history and we've been lucky with Davis. I don't want to see Snyder at LT for God's sake (CK's blind side). Getting Boone some reps outside (night and day difference than OG) would be a very smart move...just in case. And oh yeah, bring in a veteran OT ASAP if possible...our backup T's are horrendous and Snyder isn't much better and it sounds like he continues to work at G anyhow.

Sun. Sep. 1 - Final day of preseason training camp for the 49ers.

Wrong.

Training camp is already over. Ended yesterday (or maybe today).

Nope. It was the final day of training camp that was open to media.

"Training camp", AKA "two-a-days" etc, is finished. It is also the last day the media will be able to watch, because "practices" are not available to the media.
They're not Navy Seals. They're not going to drive them into the ground for an entire month.
So no more media reports about TC?

then time to close this b***h!
So so ready for GM 2

Something needs to change between now and the start of the season. Back up tackles are currently useless. I would enjoy seeing kilgore at tackle just in case. I think he would do well enough as an emergency back up.

Very valid concerns that became even more salient last game. Yes, CK and our blocking RB's will mask the issue (even with Staley/Davis in there) but as we have learned the past two years, the issues WILL come out eventually. And do we really want to expose CK's blind side to Snyder or Boone from the G position and change 2 of 5 OL just to do it? CK "is" your offense...do you want to RGIII-risk him?

I think if anything, Tank would slide inside when Aldon has his hand in the dirt. Tank and Aldon played the same position in college, but they converted Aldon to LB and they want Tank to play on the line full time. So think of Tank as Justin Smith.

If anyone would spell Brooks or Aldon in the situation you describe, it would be Lemonier.

I came away with a good impression of Lemonier in the 1st game. He seemed really quick off the line and in the backfield a lot. Our OLB depth is so much better this year.
