Faulk: “All Built Around Gore”

Today the NFL Network and Marshall Faulk were on hand at the 49ers practice and it seemed that everyone was gravitating to Faulk. During his time at the practice Faulk stressed that Gore’s role will be more important due to the inexperience of the 49ers’ QB’s. He compared it to his early days in St. Louis.

“It was all on me,” Faulk said. “Frank is going to be the guy, the core. It’s all going to be built around him.”

The Pundit of 49ersNews. I do what I can to supply the Niner fans with their fix.
  • Mike

    Faulk don’t even compare yourself with Gore’s role and ability. Gore is a 49er and you just wish you could have been on.

  • straighthate

    That was a stupid comment.

    Faulk is one of the classiest guys around the game, and hearing this makes me pretty eager to see what Martz has planned for Gore. I’d love to see him top the total yards category for the NFL this year.

  • Dan the man

    I agree, that was a terrible comment… I hope Gore can be half of what Faulk was, and I believe that Gore can have a Faulk type of season if he gets a little help from the other 10

  • MSouza

    agreed

  • http://www.hotmail.com Ryan the 1st

    Yeah man, you kind of blew it with that comment. Faulk is a class A guy and an former NFL MVP. I am not saying that Gore can’t be a stud and won’t blow up next year because I do think that he will blow up, but I REALLY hope that Gore can be a Faulk type of running back. All Frank needs is to be patient when hitting the hole IF he is going to do this. I love that Gore hits to hole hard, but sometimes that isn’t the best strategy. Battle dropped the ball with this last stunt….unless it was a FAMILY emergency then he dropped the ball and deserves getting bumped to third or fourth receiver. I personally think Lelie is the better receiver. I know Battle has been Mr. Reliable, but he has only been reliable for C grade stats. It isn’t like he has had a thousand yard season or something. The niners need to go O line, TED, and WR in the draft next year. However, I have this itchy feeling that TWO receivers that we have on the roster who aren’t named Bruce or Battle are going to really impress this year. Bruce and Battle will do their thing, but I really think two other receivers are going to blow up….BRYANT JOHNSON!

  • 49er4life

    Frank Gore would be as good as Faulk if he was as fast. Unfortunately , Gore isn’t so he’ll never be as good as Faulk.

  • Billy

    Whoa hey now I know Faulk is great but I really think you guys are underestimating Frank Gore sure he differs from Faulk but he has Potential to be better I mean the offence revolves around Gore cause hes great especially with 8 men in the box and a sucky as throwing game he was the only thing we had going in offense and will have a break out year. So no comparissons cause they`re both different backs with different talents.

  • Billy

    Sometimes I think you guys just like to jump on people for simple things they say I mean come on mo reason to put your team and fellow fans down jeez

  • Adam49

    Speed has nothing to do with the running back position.Saying Gore will never be as good as Faulk because he's not as fast is straight stupid and flat out wrong.Barry Sanders

  • Adam49

    Oops sorry.Barry Sanders, Walter Payton,Roger Craig,Franco Harris,and even Emmitt Smith were all great running backs and none of them had great speed.No i'm not comparing Gore to them.Just the speed aspect.I'd take a running back with great vision,the ability to break tackles,and the ability to pick up a blitz over speed any day of the week and twice on sunday.Mike Martz already said that Gore can pass block better than Faulk.And he also said that Gore is a better runner in between the tackles than faulk was.The only things stopping gore from being a better running back than faulk is experiance and the biggest thing, inuries.Marshall Faulk is a Hall of Famer and because gore has had both knees and both shoulders worked on I dont think he will have the career that faulk had,but I sure think gore is as good as faulk talent wise.

  • toine220

    faulk has no bessiness being there he might be a ram spy

  • seekret_sauce

    HAHAHA RIC LOW…c'mon man "offense of line"…"offensive line".

  • Niner

    Mike = Billy

  • Adam49

    49er4life can you read?I said I was comparing speed.Pay attention.And Adrian Peterson is one of the two best running backs in the league.Your fckn nuts.What about Larry Johnson,Clinton Portis,Reggie Bush,Stephen Jackson,Frank Gore,or Brian Westbrook?One year and your puttin Peterson 2nd?And your tellin me to slap myself?Come on dude.

  • Adam49

    Amd mike, that was a rediculous comment.Faulk ia a HALL OF FAME running back.At the moment gore is just a good running back.

  • RIC LOW

    Faulk could talk to Gore all he wants. But the offense of line? A.Smith? Im anxious and excited for the new offense

  • 49er4life

    I’m not saying that a good running back has to be fast. But in today’s game, when D-linemen have 4.6 speed, speed is especially important. The two best running backs in the game today are LT and Adrian Pederson, both of whom run in the 4.4 range. What does Gore run? Try 4.7. Gore is a great runner, and he is as shifty as any runner in the league today. But Gore’s speed is what prevents him from being an elite running back. And don’t ever mention Gore in the same breadth as Barry Sanders. Slap yourself.

  • yungjoe415

    wow stfu frank gore is good thats all that matters, and he doesnt run a 4.7 thats like the dumbest shit i heard. and why are all you tripping about wide recievers martz uses the most talented players if we have 4 WR sets there it will be hella random players and i promise you v davis will be on almost every play regardless. can you guys say mismatch

  • FranktheTank

    What about Lecharles Bentley for oline depth he was nasty then got hurt and the browns cut him i think he is worth a shot we should pick him up

  • Samson

    ill make it nice and clear for all you guys FRANK GORE IS A COMPLETE BACK PERIOD……. he has led the team in reception the last two seasons and he has rushed for consecutive thousand yard seasons and his pass blocking is very good so therefore GORE is what most teams want in a running back and we got him gentlemen!!!!!!

  • Adam49

    Samra,that is a good top 10.But I would definitely put Gore ahead of Jackson and I would move portis up a few spots.

  • Samra

    first of all Gore is as good as Faulk,even though he doesnt have track speed, Gore is blessed with Football Speed..prime Example the fourth down TD from the 2nd week rams game…Also Adrian Petersom is a top 10 back not the #2…heres how i think the ranking of top 10 backs goes…
    1. Ladanian Tomlinson (Fell a bit last yr but will come back stronger)
    2. Brian Westbrook (Everything R. Bush was supp. to be, can catch& Run)
    3. Steven Jackson (Fast playmaker)
    4. Frank Gore (Heart and Soul of out offense…will have a breakout yr)
    5. Adrian Peterson (If he can repeat and stay healthy then a #2)
    6. Willie Parker (only this low due to current injury)
    7. Clinton Portis (great outside runner when healthy)
    8. Willis McGahee (another great product of the U)
    9. Jamal Lewis (gotten his groove back will build on last yr)
    10.Fred Taylor (strong hard running playmaker when healthy)

  • Samra

    Also a little news from Rotoworld…Marcus Maxwell played on the first team with Chad Johnson sitting out team drills Thursday.Impact: Rookies Andre Caldwell and Jerome Simpson are taking a backseat. Antonio Chatman might be the favorite for the third job, but for now Maxwell looks more likely to start if Johnson or T.J. Houshmandzadeh got hurt.

  • Billy

    Man I knew Maxwell was going to develop to a decent WR he was worth watching In NFL Europe

    And Samra you took the words out of my mouth look at Jerry Rice he wasnt the fastest on his 4 time but he is still great due to game speed and why the heck are we putting down Frank Gore OUR BEST Offensive player some people here are like 49er4life I mean sure hes not any other back but hes our starter and I give him props for havin 1000 yds in our horrible offense

    And no niner Im not Mike theres a reason Im Billy Im not pretending to be someone else

  • 49er4life

    I’m not putting Gore down at all. I think he’s a great back, and we should ride him till the wheels fall off. But i’m saying, you cannot compare him to a first ballot hall of famer. It’s just not right.

  • Dan the man

    Holy cow. Did “Samra” just say Gore is just as good as Faulk. C’mon bud, Gore hasn’t done shit compared to Faulk. I think Gore is good, but Marshall is one of the few players to reach at least 10,000 rushing yards and 5,000 receiving yards in his career. He is the only player to have 100+ rushing touchdowns and 30+ receiving touchdowns, and to conclude, he was also an NFL MVP and a Super Bowl winner. As much as I like Gore, can we please stop comparing him to Marshall. I know Gore’s career isn’t over yet, but I don’t think Gore’s health will let him sniff the career Faulk had.

  • ninerfaithful

    I am so stoked that we are getting closer to pre season i cant wait to see the tempo of the offense now that we have a real OC Go niners

  • Adam49

    What do you guys think about York saying that bringing back the 80's uniforms is about 50/50.I think that would be pretty awesome.But a cool new design would be sweet too.

  • ninerfaithful

    i say back to "throwbacks" about the uni topic

  • stress

    FUCK FAULK! hes not classy, hes just got a huge boner for gore which he should. Hey faulk just cause gore plays in san fran doesnt mean hes gay so back off! HOMOOOOOO

  • Kevan Barlow

    Dan the man you leave samra alone he hates frank gore because he took my job Gosh i wish i was on the team again i wish i could make a nfl roster again ! samara i thank u for being such a Kevan fan and still holding me true to your heart i will always be your # running back

  • seahawk insider

    i've been reading your blog… again…Last time I saw a ninner face it was hanging at the Seahawks Lodge. The ninners suck. Hawk n roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Adam49

    whens the last time the seahawks won a SuperBowl?LMFAO.Get the fuck out of here.Your reign in this division is over.Can't wait for the season to start bitch.

  • Adam49

    In our last 4 games we are 4 and 4 so you aint that good.

  • bonerjams_03

    It’s really unfair to compare any running back to another.I mean every player is so different in so many ways.I mean you can say “he reminds me so much of” but to say the someone will be greater than another player is just not fair.Its kinda like when Steve Young took over for Joe, I mean Steve was never gonna live up to what Joe did but he become a hall of fame Quarterback.And another thing speed doesn’t always matter for a running back.Just look at Reggie Bush.Dudes fast but has he had consecutive 1,000 yard rushing seasons?

  • Adam49

    Just because Gore probably won’t reach Faulks stats dont mean he isn’t as good as faulk.Cmon Dan.Gimme a break.Ther’s no doubt that gore is a better all around player than faulk.I mean what did faulk do better than gore and I know faulk will have a better career than gore.But that’s the luck of the draw.Gore blew out both knees so he will not be able to play as long as faulk.(I’ll repeat myself)I dont think anyone knows faulk better than Mike Martz.Martz himself said that Gore is a better runner in between the tackle than faulk,he said that gore is better at blitz pickup than marshall ever was.And he even said that gore was not far behind on recieving(although i have seen gore drop or tip alot of paases).Toughness,faulk missed a whole season with turf toe.I’ve had turf toe and it does hurt ALOT.Gore had a severly sprained ankle and played the whole season except for 1 game on it.My opinion dude but i’d take gore as my running back over faulk anyday.And faulks 1000 yard reciveing and 1000 yard rushing year came with martz as coach so i expect huge numbers outta gore this year.

  • Samra

    all im gonna say about gore is that he is a leader in the same respect to Faulk and can run as well as any back and catch too…his only downfall is his fumbling problem…and about the uni’s i say we go to the throwbacks but with some better pants perhaps stitched a little differently but the same color scheme…all the teams such as the vikings, falcons and cardinals are trying to start a new trend with those “updated” type of uni’s with the different sleeves but i think the 3 striped sleeves look way better…

  • Kevan Barlow

    samra didnt you like the way i looked im my throwback warning samra is my biggest fan and i hope someday to be able to break off a big run for him.!. keep wearin my #32

  • ninerfaithful

    who is this kevan barlow guy? And why is up on Samra? Kevan he dont like you nor does any ninerfaithful on this site so shut the fuck up…. so any new news out of ota’s today

  • Billy

    Im happy everyone is getting along and now we understan that although right now they might not be the same Faulk deserves respect but Frank Gore is great and has the talent to be as great if not better then Faulk. As dor some people there either Rams fans or have really thick skulls.

    Go Gore!!! Have that 2,000 yd season this year!!! :]

  • Samra

    man who is posting as kevan barlow???

  • Adam49

    oooops 2 and 2 my bad

  • anthony14yrs

    you need to stop rippen eachothers comments and puttin fellow fans down gore has great potential,maybe not the same calliber running back as marshall faulk but how many running backs are? we have all yet to see what frank gore can do under mike martz and a little better o-line!come on are u guyz forgetting that gore just had a thousand yard plus season 2seasons ago look out we got a star on our hands teams better watch out for the niners this year!!! O. AND BY THE WAY NINERS RULE FUCK THE REST INCLUDING THE SEACOCKS!!GET OUTTA HERE BITCH!!!!!!!!!!

  • Adam49

    This sight is to voice your opinions just like you did.Were not rippin each others comments, just agreeing and diagreeing.

  • Samra

    More former Niner News from rotoworld:

    Former practice squad regular Harvey Dahl is running with the Falcons first-team offensive line at right guard.The new coaching staff has a clean slate and wants to pair the nasty-tempered Dahl with the even nastier right tackle Tyson Clabo. Longtime starter Kynan Forney has worked behind Dahl, but the team is still in the experimental stage.

    I bet the niners are wishing the could have kept him Last year…I probably wouldve cut Leron McCoy or Attiyah Allison or Kwame "the Raider" Harris in order to keep Dahl.

    Hey guys check out the Madden 09 player/team ratings http://www.pastapadre.com/2645/madden-09-player-and-team-ratings?nggpage=4

    49ers r one of the worst teams in the game

  • seahawk insider

    There you guy's go.Talking about Madden.Searching for a code to juice up Alex Smith.What a joke!! Willis 96 rated.I wonder if i can run reverses with him.lmfao, an Adam49 please dont compare, an stop living in the past. You may not say it on this site but when you see the schedule you hate that you have to play almighty SeaHawks. You wish you had an QB such as ours or even an O.LOL nice try Simp.

  • http://www.hotmail.com Ryan the 1st

    Did you hear that TBC and Rachal got into a major scuffle at practice a few days back. I gues Rachal threw him around like a “rag doll”. I read it on either Maiocco’s site or Barrows’….I can’t remember.

  • niner fan

    GO BACK TO THE SEACOCKSUCKERS SITE AND PLAY WITH MATT HASSLEFAGS BALLS SOME MORE.

  • http://www.hotmail.com Ryan the 1st

    Wow, that was a deep comment. A 96 rating sounds fair since he is the better linebacker between him and Tatupu. If you don't like the 96 rating then why don't we refer to .96 which is probably close to what Tatupu's blood alcohol content was during his DUI…..what an idiot. Enjoy your time now because as soon as Holmgren leaves you guys are SCREWED!!! I wouldn't be surprised if you guys get unseated this year. You keep losing talent on offense and stay the same on defense. So while you will have a good defense you will have an injured Branch, Julius Jones, and a couple of overrated receivers that will have to pick up the pace for Branch who is expected to be injured into this coming season. Branch isn't sounding like he is likely to play against the niners. BLITZ, BLITZ, BLITZ!!!!

  • AXEGRINDER

    Good post, Medford. All's you have to do is make the playoffs the year before and you'll get a 90+ rating the following year. Madden ratings are bullshit for the most part, just look at the sorry ass Redskin's 88 rating. I mean, the Rams suck REAL bad and they got a 77 rating. Those people at EA Sports don't factor in offseason acquisitions or coaching changes. I'll still whoop on fools online with the Niners no matter what their rating is.

    And as for this Seacocks asshole……your team has been a perennial loser ever since they have been in the league!! Going to the Super Bowl and LOSING doesn't give you any kind of bragging rights. It's alright dude, some teams are just NOT MEANT TO WIN THE BIG GAME. Your reign atop this sorry division is OVER. It's 49er time now dickhead.

  • Samra

    Hey Seahawks Insider…u know whats funny is that last year some bitch ass rams fan used to come on and talk some mighty shit…until well they ended up not winning any games for the first half of the season…come on man u dont want to jinx your poor seachickens do u…i mean no run game, lame WRs other than deion branch, no TE, a weak o-line other and walter jones near the end of his career, and a sorry ass defense…seems like u guys got alot goin for u huh??? LMAO hope Julius jones can run cuz u guys wont be able to hide from my boy Bam Bam

  • seahawk insider

    Samra, we dont believe in jinx. And please dont talk about Offenses, do you even know what one is. Thanks for keeping us in the playoffs year after year.

  • seahawk insider

    Come on Ryan, "I wouldn’t be surprised if you guys get unseated this year. You keep losing talent on offense and stay the same on defense," is that the best you can do. Spoken like a true niner fan, "I wouldnt be surprised if the seahawks are unseated" wha wha wha, you are not sounding to sure of your team. An if you have to wish for injuries how good are you guy's. Maybe ever team in the NFL will becomed injured so the niners can slip into a wildcard slot. There you go Ryan, great way to show your team spirit. Fans like yourself is why people call them the forty whinners.

  • seahawks insider

    Anyways im back from being fucked by father while licking my grandmother's asshole. The bottomline is Matt Hasslebeck refused to join in my orgy so fuck him. I see what you mean Samra, Dieon Branch is hurt and probaly wont get better. Nate Burleson sucks but the 30 million we payed to get him was totally worth it because as I personally have witnessed black people have big dicks. Except Shaun Alexander, he was a pussy on and off the feild, but i guess some of the straight people might of had fun with that bitch. And Axegrinder im sorry for hating on you man it's just that the penny you paid my mother last night doesnt cover the cost of madden, I mean its not your fault I have to sleep naked with my brother just to generate some heat if you know what I mean.

  • Samra

    LMAO!!! man i feel it for u seacocks fan… not only hasnt your team ever won a superbowl but you also fuck ur brother…thats some fucked up shit i'd prolly kill myself if i were u bro…

  • seahawk insider

    Samera, u feel what for me bro.

  • niner fan

    naw lets talk about the last seacock superbowl win

  • Samra

    man why would u go talkin shit on urself seacock fan and then blame it on me…u nasty ass fuck…and i know the seacocks are sorry and all and it prolly depresses u but get a life this is a niners site…

    hey west…ezra butler got cut a while back man for the DUI or some shit

  • seahawk insider

    West good job no disrespect, but YES we have one intelligent post. There is actually one niner fan on this site that knows about football and not to mention his team. WOW

  • niner fan

    no one wants to hear from you seacock insider so get your tongue out of your moms ass and keep wishing you had a championship team to root for. you do not know shit about the niners or the game of football so fuck off you piece of shit seahawk fan.

  • Samra

    hahaha man seacock fan ur too funny man…ur as lame as ur team…your comebacks are as stale as the food stuck underneath mike holgren belly…

  • seahawk insider

    AXEGRINDER keep playing Madden kid. We own the niners, you will never see the playoffs again if you can not get past us. Deal with it. You fans can not be that dumb. AXEGRINDER did you trade Alex Smith yet or are you tring to build up his rating hoping it will tranfer over to real life. It’s okay my son, it’s okay.

  • Samra

    The San Francisco 49ers announced Tuesday that they claimed and were awarded third-year DT LaJuan Ramsey off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles. Ramsey was waived by Philadelphia on June 12.

    Ramsey (6-3, 300) was originally drafted in the sixth-round of the 2006 draft by Philadelphia out of USC. He played in six games as a rookie in 2006 and nine games last season. Ramsey was part of two national championships during his college career at USC.

  • seahawk insider

    And Samera why would you post under my name Simp.

    Also Ramsey will not make the team, there is a reason why he is always waived kid. “all happy for nothing”

  • niner fan

    seacock insider go talk about matt hasslefag and deion bitch with your

  • niner fan

    sick ass family.

  • seahawk insider

    Naw lets talk about your TED linebacker position. If only Spikes would sign. Ulbrich could be great, “right” LMFAO.

  • West

    Personally I would hope Dontarrious Thomas could fill the Ted linebacker position….. He is an athlete, just hope the mental part of the game doesn’t limit Thomas. ……… Ulbrich has made a name on special teams but was really all over the field and I would like it to stay the same…….. Strenghten our team all around. …….Spikes is any OLB that I don’t believe wants to take the pounding of a TED……. Spikes also may want to play for a team like the Patz, and try and get a fast ring like J. Seau tried.. .. .Ezra Butler is also a player I hope we hold on to, I don’t see him starting but could add to the team….

  • AXEGRINDER

    Hey Seacocksucker,

    First of all, I ain’t your son so quit wishing that I was. Second, I’ll keep playing Madden, I don’t need your fucking permission. Third, what the fuck is a “simp” anyway? Is that some kind of retarded Seattle grunge jargin? Maybe you should blow your own head off like every other depressed chump in your piece of rainy shit city. You fags can’t even hold on to a basketball team. Remember when the Niners marched into your house on national television and ran for 106 yards in the 4th quarter alone? That was pretty funny. What was even funnier than that was when Alex Smith faked the whole stadium out and walked into the endzone. Even funnier than that was you stupid ass, beads wearin’, wigs sportin’ makeup havin’, faggot seacock fans couldn’t say shit. Stunned silence. Thought you guys were Super Bowl contenders? What a fucking joke. You asswipes can’t even say “Super Bowl”. Even last year when that fat fuck Rocky Benard sat on Alex Smith, I was still mouthin’ off, and I won’t fucking stop. Even your own coach is done with you losers. He’ll be back in SF where he belongs soon enough.

    Oh yeah, you said “thanks for keeping us in the playoffs year after year”. That’s right, I’ll admit we have had a few down years. And that’s the ONLY reason you terds have seen the playoffs. Too bad you can’t fucking win once you get there.

    As the 49ers' practices wind down this week, the quarterback competition is only heating up.

    After the final organized team activity Thursday, the coaching staff will spend the next month or so figuring out a tentative pecking order for when training camp kicks off July 24.

    All indications are that Alex Smith will get the first crack with the starting unit. He played well during the organized team activities and drew praise from Coach Mike Nolan on Tuesday for his improved ability to handle the blitz.

    But, at best, Smith's name will be written in light pencil.

    Shaun Hill and J.T. O'Sullivan also have a shot at the starting job.

    "The pleasing thing to me is that we have three guys who can win a game for us," Nolan said.

    No final decision on a starter needs to be made, of course, until the regular season opens Sept. 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    But Nolan wants a plan for how much time each quarterback will spend with the first-team offense at the start of training camp. If the 49ers alternate too often, they run the risk of another season with the offense out of sync.

    Linemen need to get used to a quarterback's rhythm barking out signals; receivers need to develop chemistry on routes. Those elements take on extra importance under new offensive coordinator Mike Martz, whose schemes rely on precision and timing.

    "At some point, you have to decide who is going to take more reps. You have to do that in fairness

    ——————————————————————————–

    to the other players who are out there," Nolan said.

    The coach stopped short of naming names, but Smith left a positive impression during the OTAs with his improved reads.

    Martz has challenged Smith to be more aggressive against the blitz. Instead of always checking down and worrying about protection, Smith is learning that blitzes can sometimes be exploited for a big play.

    He's getting rid of the ball more quickly – to the so-called "hot read" – and throwing with more confidence.

    "He's doing things in practice I haven't seen him do before," Nolan said.

    Smith, about to begin his fourth season, said he is starting to understand Martz's concept of organized chaos. When he first started studying game film, and saw the ball flying all over the place, Smith thought it looked free-wheeling and improvisational.

    "I thought, 'Man, it looks like a gunslinger,' " he said. "But it's actually very fundamental, very thought out. Everything is done for a reason."

    The concept of using hot reads is hardly revolutionary – except, perhaps, for recent 49ers teams. Tight end Vernon Davis said Tuesday that he couldn't remember being the target of a hot read last year.

    He's glad Martz is resolving the problem.

    "A lot of big plays come from hot routes," Davis said. "I'm excited about our offense."

    • The 49ers were awarded defensive tackle LaJuan Ramsey on a waiver claim. Ramsey, who is 6-foot-3, 300 pounds, was a sixth-round pick out of USC by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2006.

    He played six games as a rookie and nine last season. Ramsey played for two national title teams while with the Trojans.

    • Tackle Ramiro Pruneda was assigned to the 49ers as part of the NFL's international practice squad program. Pruneda (6-6, 317 pounds) led Monterey Tech to four Mexican national championships.

    Under the program, 16 players from around the world get a chance to spend a season as an extra man on an NFL practice squad.

    • Former Redskins defensive lineman Joe Salave'a, now an assistant coach at San Jose State, is working with the 49ers during the OTAs. "He's going to be a heck of a coach," Nolan said.

  • Packfan#4rules

    You guys wish you had Aaron Rodgers this year instead of Alex Smith.Watch Aaron will tear it up.Pack in the superbowl!!!!!!!

  • http://www.hotmail.com Ryan the 1st

    You're an idiot. I still have mixed feelings about us drafting Smith over Rodgers, but I GUARANTEE that Smith will have the better season.

  • ninerfaithful

    packfan- you really think the packers have faith in rodgers?

    thats why brian brohm is on the roster there is no way rodgers will even come clost to 13-3 season repeat

    i do think rodgers has alot of potential but the niners were better off with taking smith

  • ninerfaithful

    why do other fans from other teams come here i know the site is off the hook but dam we need to only allow niner fans excuse me guys i need to take a seahawk and wipe with a packers fan

  • http://www.hotmail.com Ryan the 1st

    Good point, I just don't see them repeating what they did last year, plus they have a Ryan Grant holdout problem. That isn't going to help matters because the packers ARE arrogant and stupid enough to trust Brandon Jackson as their starter…..HA HA!!! Furthermore, Brohm is a HUGE statement from the packers. If they had a lot of faith in Rodgers they wouldn't have drafted that guy. Alex Smith WILL have the better season.

  • Texansfan_360

    Dameco Ryans is way better than Patrick Willis.

  • NINER81

    OK! I JUST READ THAT THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR THAT THE NINERS ARE INTALLING HOT ROUTES ON THE OFFENSE SINCE NOLAN HAS ARRIVED…..WHAT DA HELL?…. NOLAN SAID THAT HIM BEING A DEFFENSIVE MINDED COACH, HIS THINKING WAS TO DEFEND THE BLIZ RATHER THAN ATTACK IT….OK I GIVE HIM THAT…. BUT WHY WOULDN'T HE HAVE SOME HOT ROUTES. I DONT GET IT. THAT FORMULA OF PROTECTION WOULD PROBALY WORK BETTER IF….SAY….. KWAME HARRIS…… WASN'T ON THE TEAM,OR YOU HAD EXPERIENCED LINE MEN. THIS MEANS THAT ALEX SMITH HAS BEEN IN THE LEAGUE ALL THIS TIME AND HAS NEVER CALLED OR THROWN TO A HOT ROUTE.

    Great point NINER81.

  • MSouza

    I read the article too, but I don’t think they meant that it is the first time we have ever used hot routes. I think they meant that we have always checked down on blitzes rather that exploiting them. A check down is a hot route too, but we never took a chance down field, I think that is more of what they meant.

  • 11Cardinals81

    San Fransico Forty Winners running hot routes, right you mean watching the Cards Dominating Hot Routes. We are the land of Hot Routes, Inventers , what can I say, that’s just what we do.

  • AXEGRINDER

    LOL. That was some funny shit. HAHAHAHA

  • Kevan Barlow

    Check it it out the niners trade Battle and Melvin Oliver For Roy Williams From Dallas Plus a future 3rd round pick

    maybe that explains why battle stayed in dallas its was for a private work out for jerry jones ha ha ha ha ha niner losers ha ha ha you will lose

  • West

    The Cardinals are the NFL’s Farm Team. Any good players will move on to a “REAL” team as soon as possible. Anquan Boldin has just taken longer to figure it out. Bryant Johnson caught on quick and I would personally like to be the first to send out a special, Thanks on behalf of all 9er fans. It is true, the NFL wouldn’t be the same without the BirdBrains strengthening the NFL’s talent.

  • Niner Pundit

    actually Kevan you lose…remind me again, where are you playing?

    And West, why are you talking to yourself? You make a comment as 11Cards81 then respond to your own comment….wow

  • faccipazzo

    When frank Gore leads the NFL in Rushing, has 1381 yrds.Rushing/1000 yrd receiving in a season. The NFLs Most Valuable Player award , Two time the NFLPA Player of the year award [2001-02]. Marshall Faulk only played 12 seasons for the(Colts/Rams) He is one of, if, not the greatest two-way backs eve, racking up 19,154 yrds from scimmage. He had 12,279 yrds.rushing, and 100 TDS. He had 767 catches for 6875 yrds. and another 36 TDS. He held or holds the NFL record for all-purpose yrds.[2429 yrds.] in a season. Played in two(2)Super Bowls. I've seen them come and go since 1954. And only Jim Brown and Barry Sanders could run without blockers, and Marshall Faulk, my most hated Ram when he played, was 1/2 tier below them. Frank Gore, is my favorite 49er runner, since, Hurrying Hugh "The King" McElhenny. When Gore hits a hole, clean, he's gone. Too bad he's slow. I'll raise my hand right now though, and say, Frank Gore couldn't carry Marshall Faulks shoulder pads. He's not even in the same class a 49er, as Roger Craig was. Of course I don't exspect anyone under 40, and a 49er fan to really understand this.

  • faccipazzo

    Hey Kevin Barlow, you’re part of them ol bitches, when you played. All that talent and no moxie.

  • sf4life

    i cant believe yall fighting. first you should be happy marshall is talking to frank. he’s teaching more of this incredible offense. plus with these crazy as plays they going to run, i dont think any team is dumb enough to put 8 in the box so i think frank is going to have another pro bowl season.im fuckin excited bout this season. i wanna see how martz uses vernon. and i know our defense is going to be solid. getting manny back is a gift. two of the fastest linebackers in the leaugue. damn i cant wait. stop all this non sense argueing. but also dumbass comments either! GO NINERS
