Haha. I'm more the guy that takes two classes at the same time and needs his buddy to take notes in the class I'm not in that day. LOL

Kittle + Hooper

I was so into this idea, the last two years I've been hoping for a top pass catching TE as much as WR because with this running game and two dominant TE's, I think Kyle would own the league.

yes! perfect for kyle's offensive narrative
Holmgreen owned the league with Keith Jackson and Mark Chmura
and he's from stanford LOL!

2020 In-house off season plan before free agency/draft:

Current Salary Cap Space: $11.58M
Remaining Salary Cap Space Needed: $36M (includes -$11.58M and Kittle/Buckner extension differences in 2020 APY and outlined deals below; does not include rookie cap pool)

Per AB (Jason Hurley) at 49erscap , we could save $36M with contract restructures:
The 49ers will likely look into restructures, namely Jimmy Garoppolo, Joe Staley, and Dee Ford. They'd save over $19 million with a Garoppolo restructure, over $10 million with a Ford restructure, and over $7 million with a Staley restructure.

Question? Do the correct releases. Coleman, Goodwin, McKinnon. That's gets niners to around 20 million in cap room. Try to keep Arik. Sign Ward, too. Now, the guy we need is Jalen Ramsey. Sherm is gone in a year. BTW, Solly is not worth 9 million per. I think the niners keep him though. How do we sign Ramsey?

You talking about the Rams' Jalen Ramsey?
Eric Davis on Dante Pettis and Matt Breida:

"Pettis is gone! I think Breida is gone... they were both healthy scratches at the Superbowl...I can win this without you."

His top team needs: ER & DB on defense and OL for offense.

This man gets it!

Brieda is a solid 3rd back and pettis is garbage

Defensive needs:
1. CB - I think the next step for this defense is getting CBs that can man cover to add that element to the coverage. It takes an entire secondary to play man so let's start acquiring them.
2. Edge depth - If the team wants RBlair back (UFA) it should be easy. I doubt another team pays him anything substantial since he'll be rehabbing half of 2020. Need some young blood here to hopefully grow into the 3rd DE role.
3. Nose Tackle depth - SDay is a UFA but isn't really a run stopper. DJJones can't finish a season. Need a backup stout run defender if KStreet isn't that guy.

Offensive needs:
1. Speed at WR - have to get defenses to back up a bit from crowding the middle of the field
2. upgrade Right Guard - Person's pass blocking leaves a lot to be desired. If Brunskill is that guy, then go for OT depth.
3. OTackle depth - Skule is okay, but needs to get better. Some vet depth to push him will be good in case Skule takes awhile to develop.

100 percent agree on everything above.

The host on that podcast covered it as his primary need but ED felt OL was slightly more important. The guy ultimately agreed.

Both are cheap too. Perhaps they can still reestablish a role going forward.
I have to confess that I don't get what happened to Breida at all. He was an important part of the offense in both 2018 and in the early part of this year and then suddenly fell completely out of the rotation. I know he was banged up a bit and had a stretch where he put the ball on the ground a couple of times but even with the emergence of Mostert Brieda has the speed and ability to be a contributor. I wonder what went on behind the scenes to cause him to fall out of favor with Shanahan.

Honestly, that was an odd one for me too. It certainly seemed that both he and Pettis got in that doghouse and I don't know if a player can get out of it...only Bourne.

Breida seemed to be a holding onto the ball issue. Pettis just didn't not take advantage of the opportunity given to him. Sucks. You can hear the disappointment in KS voice when talking about him. He stresses it is not an effort issue, but rather a performance and urgency issue, I just don't get it. Bummer.
