Fans’ Take: Who should the 49ers target in free agency?

Jul 26, 2011 at 3:41 PM11


Which free agents should the 49ers target in the 2011 NFL free agency? We asked this question to San Francisco 49ers fans on Facebook and Twitter. Below are just a few of the responses we received.

B. Wiley: Any of the top QB's out there...Smith is not the answer.

D. Montano: get cromartie!! were obviously not getting asomugha so why not get the 2nd best corner in free agency

@mangosinslo: Marshall, Joseph, taylor

@RobbyBaughman They should go get Ray Edwards

F. Bucio: Nnamdi please!!

@NTQ03: They should sign former pro-bowler Leonard Davis to replace Rachal, Nmamdi or Cromartie, & a vet QB to replace Carr.

A. Williams-Fashaw: Hasselbeck, Nmandhi A., Holmes, or Cromartie

S. Braccia: Hasselback and Johnathan Joseph

D. Wright: No one believes Smith is the answer... he is the stopgap or bridge to Colin Kaepernick ... Harbaugh will make them both better... we'll see just how much.

H. Esquivel: Nnamdi! And a new RG! Bring Lawson, Franklin, Laboy, Mcdonald, Goldson, Bass, Spikes back! Cut Haralson! Make Rachal a back up! Cut Horrid and get a new FB! Restructure Clements!

J. Servente: Cromartie, Nmandi, or Asante. Worst defensive backfield in the game. Need to fix this now.

M. Tavares: Definitely a CB, a QB, and a better #2 receiver

A. Kneisel: Nnamdi, Cromartie , restructure Clements or cut him. Sign baas and McDonald. Move a restructured Clements to safety with mays nnamdi and Cromartie and watch this defense dominate...

J. Clougherty: Johnathan Joseph thats it -- He won't command a big salary no matter much Nnamdi gets so we would still avoid being "major players" in free agency by signing him.

A. Carrillo: Josh Johnson,Ricahard Marshall,Thomas Howard and Eric Weddle

T. Velasquez: Nnamdi.

@kilzz80: Sydney Rice, he's a very good WR and provides a deep threat, also I would like to a WO with RICE on there jersey again in SF.

F. Hernandez: Johnathan Joseph & Cromartie...we need better DB's

C. Munkres: Orton and Nmandhi

    what we needed to do was sign a guard like harvery dahl(i know its too late !) or a proven tacles so when can have another starting linemen with experiance so when one of our starter goes down another proven player can step up. we also needed to sign the big contract with desahun goldson so we could have a skilled vertrean safety with a bright future. best scenairo would have been to sign johnathen joseph to a nice big contract in the beginign and solidfied the cb postion.or we should have restrurcered nates contract traded him and a draftpick for a different corner. for our wr postion malcom folyd for cheap or brylan edwards to break the bank book, we need size at the wr postion zeigler is not cutting it. an agile fb would be neccessary if we are running a truewest coast, since we only have moran norris who is a great blocker . QB postion needs something besides alex and the rookie maybe im crazy but forsome reason a trade for charlie whinehurts sounds appealing to contend with alex smith for the starting roll . mat roth cliff avril and kedric golston all look like a great additon to our defense of line with mc donald sopaga and justin smith. balke has my dream job.. contact me!

    I wish they would do anything , again they decide not to bring in a QB to challenge Alex , we need a WR , a RB , QB , CB , DE and a center we're still a mess and don't seem to be bringing in any players to improve.

    Cromartie has very poor habits when it comes to putting in the hours in the film room which reflects a poor attitude. In the NFL, natural talent only goes so far. Personally, I'd prefer Jonathon Joseph AND Richard Marshall over acquiring Nmandi

    Dont think Nnamdi will be a Niner would love it tho so..I think we should get Reggie Bush when he gets cut, J. Joseph, Ray Edwards, Sidney Rice, and I wouldnt mind seeing T.O. back. And I think Alex will be fine this yr Im not gonna down him like everyone else does cause ur supposed to support whoever is on ur team n be posiive cause negativity breeds more losing. And me being a fan for years now im tired of losing and a culture change is needed starting with less hatred for our starting QB if he ends up being that.

    Alex Smith is the answer! If the question is what's the best way to get the number one draft pick for next year. Still think we should go for Nnamdi, and if we can restructure Clements and have them as our corners.

    I would like a DT (Pat Williams) a big WR, or a corner. Joseph is on a lot of people's radar. James Jone is a possibility. Plaxico Maxico Buress will be cheap!

    Resigning McDonald, Bass, Lawson, Franklin, and Gholdson should be #1 priority. If not, I would like a DT (Pat Williams) a big WR, or a corner. Joseph is on a lot of people's radar. James Jone is a possibility. Plaxico Maxico Buress will be cheap! Oh ya, get rid of David Carr ASAP. He can't throw a 12 yard out.

    I Think The 49ers Should Get Rid Of Nate Clements, Which Would Free Up Cap Space$$$. He's Not Worth Almost 9 Million Dollars Could Be More, Cut Him Coach Jim Please!!! Go After (DB's) Joseph, Cromartie...(WR's) Roy Williams, Randy Moss... I Think That The 49er's Will Get The Most For The Money That They Will Spend, It Would Have Been Nice To Sign Nnamdi Asomugha, But B/C Of The Knew CBA The Cap $$$ Is Lower Know So We Must Spend Smart And Wise!!!

The Sky Is Not Falling, 49ers Fans

By Brian Renick
Sep 16, 2020

I have recently discovered one of my new favorite shows on Hulu during this COVID-19 quarantine. It's called Letterkenny, and it's a half-hour comedy out of Canada that brings jokes, wit, and one-liners at a pace that is almost overwhelming at times. There is a LOT of Canadian slang (yes that's a real thing, and most of it comes from hockey), and one of the phrases that main character Wayne, the town's champion fighter and tough guy, says often when confronted by nonsense from somebody is "You better settle down over there or I'm gonna come talk to ya." 49er fans, you better settle down over there or I'm gonna come talk ya! The 49ers' performance against the Cardinals in Week 1 was less than stellar. The offense looked disjointed with its top two receivers, Deebo

PFF predicts Dre Greenlaw to be 49ers' 2020 breakout player

By David Bonilla
Sep 9, 2020

Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus went around the league and predicted one potential breakout player for each team during the 2020 season. For the San Francisco 49ers, he picked second-year linebacker Dre Greenlaw. Treash wrote the following of the selection: "Greenlaw surprised as a fifth-round rookie last year with how well he performed in Kwon Alexander's absence. He shined in coverage, posting a 72.6 grade in that facet throughout the 49ers' regular-season and postseason run (15th-best at the position). Greenlaw limits yards after the catch and has a clear nose for the ball. Including the postseason, he racked up 22 passing stops, which were the third-most at the position. He's already a top-25 linebacker in the NFL and is capable of

Simms picks 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa as potential NFL Defensive Player of the Year

By David Bonilla
Sep 9, 2020

Mike Florio, Peter King, and Chris Simms each made their predictions for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year for the 2020 season. The selection process was a little different, though. In a draft-style process, the trio each selected three players who could earn the award, creating a list of nine total candidates. King's first choice was Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle and two-time winner of the award Aaron Donald. With Donald off the board, Simms went with the San Francisco 49ers' young second-year pass rusher, Nick Bosa, as his first selection. "I'm going to go with Nick Bosa, 49ers, off the edge," Simms told Florio and King after stating that Donald may be too obvious a choice. "We know that defense is good. I expect them to be good. I'll go with Nick
