Very happy with the re-signing of Garland. Now if they can just get Sanders back!!!
Great resigning. The oline is looking pretty goofy as of now. Team need a WR starter, dline, lb, secondary, and TE Depth.

Good signing - he did a good job filling in for Richburg.
Excellent...

Sanders is the only guy I really wanted back that hasn't actually been signed(still have time)

Also wouldn't mind Moore for DE depth.

I wouldn't mind Zettel as well, but anyway Moore and Zettel are for depth only and are easy to replace.

He sure did.

I was really impressed watching him blocking on the 2nd level on running plays.

I'm wondering if Ben can beat our Richburg in Training Camp? The best ability is *availability* -- I predict that if Richburg is out for a significant amount of time, I think the Center job will be Ben's at the end of the season. We shall see.

Let's hope not. Haha. The Better Rivals podcast covered what I've been saying about guys like Coleman, Skule, Garland, McKivitz and maybe even Brunskill. There's a huge difference in talent with get-by-guys vs. 16 game starters with high upside who get better and better over time. But this pool is great for a few games here and there but if you have to rely on them for any extended period, you're going to have to do a lot of extra things to work around that, limiting your offense greatly (i.e. extra guys staying in vs. going out in routes like Juice, Kittle, RB, scheme away from that player, quicker-strike passing plays, less intermediate-deep passes, more running calls, etc.)

I'm not an expert just a diehard Niners fan, it appears to me Garland was pushed around at times and lacked the strength to handle the position.

Destroyed in the Superbowl too.

In Garlands defense it was Chris Jones though. Jones gives a lot of O-lineman trouble in the NFL. Thought was just the right match up on Andy Reid's behalf.

And it's not like Shanny could ask his guards to help and still be an effective offense.

I thought the same thing. That's where Shanahan should've adjusted. Garland was good as a back up starting a few games but asking him to block Jones one on one isn't walk in the park.
