I'm not going to really sit down and name drop each top-level poster here, but I'll say this is by far the best overall football website I know of on the internet. The Draftniks, AB and his $$$ game, the commentary a long with the Podcasts, and the posters that cruise the NFL forum and ninertalk in general. Also, the mods do a good job of keeping things directed.
Over the last 8-9 years this website keeps getting better and better. Also, looking back, I always laughed how well NolanNonsense pegged things.
I had a hard time for the first 7 years. I didn't know whether it was worth posting, or doing the salary cap work. Plus we couldn't get a layer to defect over to the 49ers. And always drafting high, missing out on some players. Drafted well, got Vernon, Willis, Staley, Gore, signed Justin, he was the 1st big signing that worked out, and the last big contract given to an outside free agent. Missed on a few picks, Manny Lawson never panned out. Alex was average at best for those 7 seasons. But Harbaugh and Baalke turned it around. Started in 2010 when we got 3 legit all pro players in the draft. 2011, 2013 drafts killed it. 2012 was a bust, but got future picks which ended up being quality guys.
2008 was also a good year, FA wise, like said Smith signed, but also claimed Brooks over waivers, and he has worked out. 2007 was a good draft for McClueless and Nolan. Brown, Goldson, and McDonald. Of course, we will likely only have Willis, Staley, and McDonald left from the group once/if Brown bolts for the money.
