Ian Williams Out for the Season

A cheap shot and now we must adjust. Let's go niners!

Dont think so. We dont use a NT as much as a 3-4 team does. So no way we draft a high NT. If we were gonna, we would of went in 2012 with Alameda Ta'amu. Or Brandon Williams in 2013 from Missouri Southern. Went to Baltimore in rd 3.
Second year in a row that playing in Seattle knocked VD out of a game and also cost a player their season with a chop block.

Can the niners just stop going there?

It's likely not. This yahoo writer could be jumping the gun.

That's what I'm thinking. Where are they getting this information from? I'm hoping it's the 6-8 weeks worse case scenario people are thinking.

For a 300lb NT maybe for obvious reasons. Either way, this might be career altering for him because he was just getting onto the field. Sweazey is sleazy
Well the reason it is season ending is because we used IR-designated to return spot (only 1) for Moody so if we didn't IR him he's have to be inactive every week and take up a roster spot until healthy. Correct me if I am wrong can't put players on PUP anymore. As for the shot it's legal in the NFL now but seems like those types of blocks should be looked at and taken out of the game. It will hurt the run game but to me it's just as dangerous and any helmet to helmet thing. Guys don't see someone then they go low and its a blown out knee or broken ankle in this case. Good thing we have Dorsey and we don't use our NT every play. Also, we have a really big lack of depth now with only Dobbs and TJE as backups. Basically Dobbs because TJE isnt likely good enough to be active really. Wish we had Carradine (or Dial) or Culliver or Crabtree or Manningham for that matter. Yeah injuries did us in the last 2 years and so far have taken a big toll on us already.
Ron Brace might not be a bad idea as a backup to Dorsey.

Career altering? I wouldn't go that far.

Not a bad idea, I wanted the 9ers to draft this kid from the start.
Signing Dorsey turned out to be a stroke of genius on Baalkes part. The bad part is that Dorsey and Williams gave Mcdonald/Smith rotation in the 4-2. Now we just have Dorsey which I think can handle all the NT and some of 4-2 DT snaps. He has been doing really well in the 4-2. Generating pressure and he even got a sack tonight. He played in a 4 man front at LSU so maybe thats the ticket.

Wasn't Dobbs playing tonight? I think I remember seeing him.Either way we should try to throw a draft pick at someone for another DT/NT. I don't think Dial is going to be ready plus I don't think Fangio would play him. They could always run Dorsey full time at NT and 50% in the 4-2. Carradine could play the other 50% or split that with Dobbs.

Yeah I thought he was gonna be better than he's been. Strictly a space eating nose tackle but he was good enough to be on the Patriots for four years. Redskins cut him though.
Man. It just sunk in. Poor f**king Williams. Dude put in the time. He was a example of hard work paying off. Then Sweezy had to get all sleezy. I think it may be time to invoke the spirit of Joe Pecsi from Casino.

Dobbs played tonight but he's garbage. I don't think he's any better than Tukuafu but the coaches do and they know more than I. Is RayMac banged up too? I noticed he was coming out more than usual.
