You guys are flat out insane
Here are the players that Baalke took over after the 2010 season. Does this look like an All-Star squad? It is a mess and fully transformed by Baalke and Baalke alone.
QB (3): Alex Smith
, David Carr, Nate Davis
RB (3): Frank Gore
, Brian Westbrook
FB (1): Moran Norris
WR (5): Michael Crabtree
, Josh Morgan, Ted Ginn Jr, Dominique Zeigler
TE (3): Vernon Davis
, Delanie Walker, Nate Byham
LT (2): Joe Staley
, Barry Sims
RG (2): Chilo Rachal, Tony Wragge
RT (1): Adam Snyder, Alex Boone
5 capable starters on offense.
DE (4): Justin Smith, Ray McDonald
, Demetric Evans, Ray McDonald
DT (2): Issac Sopoago
, Ricky Jean Francois
OLB (5): Parys Haralson, Ahmad Brooks
, Travis LaBoy, Diyral Briggs
ILB (3): Patrick Willis
CB (6): Shawntae Spencer, Tarell Brown
, Will James, Phillip Adams, Tramaine Brock
FS (2): Dashon Goldson
, Reggie Smith
SS (3): Curtis Taylor
7 capable starters on D
P: Andy Lee
LS: Brian Jennings
-He cut Nate Clements and Eric Heitman. David Baas signed with the Giants. Takeo Spikes signed with SD. Manny Lawson signed in Cincinatti. Aubrayo Franklin signed in New Orleans. Nedney retired.
-He traded away Taylor Mays
-He signed starters Carlos Rogers, Donte Whitner and Jon Goodwin. And signed David Akers who went on to have a Pro Bowl season.
-Rookies that he drafted in 2010: Mike Iupati, Anthony Davis and Navarro Bowman were named starters.
-Rookies that he drafted in 2011: Aldon Smith and Bruce Miller were named starters while Culliver, Hunter and Kilgore became solid role players.
-Colin Kaepernick became a franchise QB for us in 2012
-He traded Alex Smith for two 2nd round picks
-He traded a 6th for Boldin who had the best season for a WR in 10 years for us.
-He signed Glenn Dorsey to shore up our NT position.
-He drafted a rookie safety who made the Pro Bowl and another WR with loads of potential in Patton. If Carradine pans out he will be a steal where we got him. Same for Lattimore.
-And we have 12 draft picks to play with this year.
IMO, it's an easy decision who we should keep. The way Baalke has transformed this roster in basically the first year he took over is nothing short of amazing.
