Important offseason dates

I remember last year there was one of these threads that got stickied that was very helpful to me. So I did a couple searches for a 2008 version of it on the 'zone and it wasn't posted yet (to my knowlege) so I went out and got it.

Notice that the deadline to francise players is 4 days away (21st) and so soon we will be finding out if players like Suggs, Allen, Hayensworth, Corey Williams ext will hit the FA market.

Schedules should be out on April 6th!
There are no important dates at all. NoWin will prove once again he cannot win. He will be fired at the end of this upcomming season at which point the 49ers will have new found hope for the future.

sweet, good to know :)
