This is the worst fear when we decided to be cheap after Coleman went down. This is big as far as I am concerned. Skule is not ready to play.

Cheap with what? Who were we suppose to bring in?

Dude how many times have we had this debate. You say there was nothing we could have done, then multiple players go on to have better seasons than what we had.

To answer the question. Jordan Mills would have been nice.

How many teams have 4 quality tackles on their roster? Many teams don't even have 2, but this team is supposed to think ahead just in case we lose both our swing tackle and then our starting LT before week 3? C'mon

This. People here want a starter quality backup which nobody in the NFL has.

We're gonna have to count on KS and staff to coach the backup and scheme around this weakness. We have the best offensive coach in the NFL so at least I know everything that can be done will be done.

We have known for a month we were down to Staley and MM as our tackles. We looked at FA's and decided that we wanted to keep Skule.

This is the same thing as when we decided we were fine not adding DE help last year when we literally had no outside pass rushers. NONE. But you had people saying there was no one we could have got and we suffered all year because we didn't make a move.

Your logic is basic. You don't waste, yes waste resources on meh players in positions of need, when much better players are available in the following year.

Anyone available at tackle at that point of the season is available for a reason. The difference in talent of said available players are also slim at best, causing no need or urgency to waste a roster spot with one.

Seems to me you're just looking for a reason to say "I told you so." No matter how insignificant the reason.

Don't need Trent Williams, Matt Kalil would be enough till Staley is back.

Mills is garbage doe. What do you think they are missing out on with a guy who had consistently been one of the worst pass protectors in football? He's got a lot of experience playing badly on poor OLs. Not seeing the upside with him at all.
Get well Joe. We'll be 7-2 by the time you get back

What multiple players are you talking about at tackle? You said they're cheap, who should they have signed that amounted to jack s**t as a swing tackle?

Jordan mills? Dude is poop and you know it. Like I keep saying just about every team in the league has a major drop in talent when they lose a starter on the line. There aren't enough good lineman in this league. Period.

FWIW I have no idea what you're talking about with having this debate all the time...anyone you're signing as a backup lineman isn't gonna be very good.

It's not the same thing because we have 2 pro bowl quality tackles. As you said we had no ERs. 8f we had 0 tackles I'm sure there woulda been more of an emphasis.

After last season the biggest issue was pass rush, not backup tackle. Only once the ER situarion got cleared up did people start complaining about tackles.

It is what it is, we got what we got. Time for complaining about what was or wasnt done in the offseason is done imo. It sucks but I'm gonna trust the staff to be able to keep us going.

at least hes not out for the whole year. We can still make a late playoff push. Starting 2-0 is huge.
I just feel sick for Joe. He is the Niners. I wonder how much capital they would have to part with to acquire Trent Williams. Probably too much, most likely they'll roll with a young dude. Either Skule or Brunskill they know the offense.

3-0 would be huger.
Some dudes to check out are

Schraeder-knows the offense
Sam Young-thought he did well with us in the preseason
Kalil-probably the most talent guy in FA

We'll be 4-0 going into the Rams game
