There is a 50-50 Chance You’re going to Enjoy This Article.

sflogoThere are signs that things are turning around in regards to the San Francisco 49ers and then there are signs that appear to point to 2009 being more of the same. There is of course no possible way to know for sure what will transpire as free agency opens this evening at 9:01pm PST. With general manager Scot McCloughan making it clear that the team will “take it slow” in this juncture of the offseason though one can at least speculate. There are free agents to be had, free agents who play positions which are of particular need to this 49ers team yet the word out of Santa Clara is that those who cost the most money will not be targeted by the team.

-So much for my pipedream of Albert Haynesworth clogging up the middle as Manny Lawson and newly drafted Brian Orakpo wreck havoc on opposing quarterbacks from their OLB positions-

Perhaps that was never going to happen anyway, however lacking a truly viable option at nose tackle if Ronald Fields departs for more money than the 49ers want to pay would make one think of looking to fill that position of need. Of course as I write this there are many of you saying to yourselves;

“What position on the team isn’t a position of need James?”

Good question and my only answer would have to be maybe inside linebacker and that would only be if Takeo Spikes is resigned something both sides have said they want to happen. Tight end could be another one however the team will look to draft a late round player there with the expected departure of Billy Bajema.

In all honesty looking at the roster as a whole if anyone can tell me that there is truly a position not including the two listed above, which does not bring with it an innate need for more talent than please do so.

Quarterback – Shaun Hill is the only player at this position (the most important on the field perhaps) that is a sure thing to be on the roster in 2009. Alex Smith has not reworked his contract as of yet and there is no guarantee that he will. There are many of the Faithful who don’t want him to anyway, citing his lackluster career thus far as the reason he should not be back. One Bay Area reporter who writes about the team from her lofty perch at the San Francisco Chronicle recently stated that the only way that Smith will ever be any good is if he leaves for another team thereby gaining the chance at a complete new start. I am not sure I agree with this sentiment and do have at least a glimmer of hope that Smith is back this season and can somehow be the quarterback he was envisioned to be when the team drafted him in 2005.

There is really no one else available via free agency at quarterback, save for Gus Frerotte and to put it lightly, he is not a player I am sure anyone wants to see on this team. If he was to be signed why not simply retain last year’s signing Jamie Martin? At least his locker wouldn’t have to be changed.

Offensive Line- With Jonas “Mr. Glass” Jennings due to be cut before too long there is a real need for not only a competent starter at right tackle but also some quality depth along the line in general. This is a position so lacking in talent that speculation has the team selecting a right tackle with its first round pick at 10th overall. Specific places on the line such as center and left tackle are set but again, more depth is needed for the entire unit.

Wide Receiver- The team has stated that it will not resign Bryant Johnson for the coming season and McCloughan said recently that Isaac Bruce’s return was 50-50 (more on this later) at best. That leaves the very real possibility that Arnaz Battle will be this unit’s most seasoned player. Josh Morgan and Jason Hill show loads of potential but they cannot be fully counted on to step up and start yet. Dominique Zeigler may have a real chance of being named to the 53-man roster at the end of training camp in August however Mark Bradford, Maurice Price and Michael Spurlock (signed solely as a backup plan in case Allen Rossum signs elsewhere) do not invoke fear in opposing defensive secondary’s.

Free Safety – With the hope that Dashon Goldson will step up enough to unseat incumbent Mark Roman from his starter’s role this position would appear to be set. Adding former Atlanta Falcon Jimmy Williams to the mix helps as well but Goldson has shown a propensity for getting injured and Williams will be lucky to report to camp under 235 pounds and without a cheeseburger hanging from his mouth. More help is needed here too.

Keep in mind I have only listed four positions here, there are of course more in need of talent and the hope is that they will be addressed accordingly. Again the key word here is hope.

It may just be me, but if I hear McCloughan use the term “50-50” to describe the odds that a player will return to the team next season I am going to jump off the Golden Gate! I mean really? That’s all you can say Scot? You said it about Bruce, Spikes and even J.T. O’Sullivan. Could you have not added a little flavor to it and placed JTO’s chances of being retained at 30-70 or 20-80, or heck how about 0-100? Is it not clear to everyone already that once Martz was cut loose O’Sullivan would soon follow?

Basically the word from the 49ers to the fans is don’t expect anything exciting to take place tonight at 9:01 PM PST or even in the hours and days afterward. It may take a week or two for there to be any real signings made by the 49ers. The club will take it’s time and make some moves in free agency as it sees fit, it probably just won’t be the moves which land the game-changing, playmakers that are needed at so many positions on the field.


  • Medford

    Hey James Battle is not a seasoned WR he has had his day as r #1 wr and he hasnt panned out. It's time for us to improve that postion.

  • AXEGRINDER

    If Battle goes into the season as our #1 we're in trouble. Bruce needs to make up his mind already.

  • AXEGRINDER

    We shouldn’t be surprised by our GM’s comments. He’s just trying to play it safe. There is really no one on the market worth throwing alot of money at. I’d like to see Haynesworth here, but not for the type of money he wants. Same goes for TJ.

    I am surprised by the JTO 50/50 comment. There is no way that turnover machine should have any chance of being resigned. He showed why he is career third stringer.

  • Josh Morgan

    I agree Axe. There is nobody worth breaking the bank for this year in free agency.

  • Bobby Boucher

    It's nice to see that not just anyone can get on here now. Oh!! How did you figure it out Texas? Nevermind,let's stay on subject. I like who the niners are looking at right now. I see good value, and a good fit with our roster in B. Jones,Chris Canty, and Tony Curtis. Hope those three go through. Glad we locked up Moran Norris. Hope the Rossum rumors are true as well.

  • Josh Morgan

    Maiocco is reporting that Canty does not have a sceduled visit with us. He is going to the Giants first then the Seahags then if nothing gets done he will explore other options.

    Let me throw this one out there. If the Giants are serious about signing TJ and then throw Plax out on the market do we bite? Now he is a #1 in my opinion although a #1 who comes with baggage as we all know.

  • Josh Morgan

    Also dont forget Brooks was being played as a pass rusher in practice at the end of last season. Who knows what he can do? Nobody does except the coaches. I personally trust Sing's judgements. Just thought I would throw that out there.

  • 9nerfan

    so there any news on who try to get or going after besides TJ

  • AXEGRINDER

    I thought this site made a change for the better, then Joe Gomez shows his ignorant ugly face, stirring up shit again. So much for the change for the better. I work for a living Joe, I don't spend all day cutting hair and surfing the internet like you. I'm just going to skip over your senseless comments from now on. You wouldn't know common sense if it bitch-slapped you.

    I guess Joe's favorite team the Redskins signed Haynesworth for a $100 million. What a joke.

  • West.

    9nerfan….49ers are showing interest in Cowboys tight end Tony Curtis “Blocking TE” ,…. visit next week with Dallas defensive end Chris Canty, who is ideal for the 3-4… Titans receiver Brandon Jones has planned a visit. Jones is an ex- Oklahoma Sooner… Redskins defensive end Demetric Evans is also planning a visit…..

    Moran Norris FB & Allen Rossum both PR signed..

    49ers are saying they are NOT one of the team’s making a run at Cincinnati’s T.J. Houshmandzadeh,

  • West.

    Any news on Sean Jones FS/ SS Cleveland?

  • West.

    Kellen Winslow to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers…is DT Shaun Rogers or QB Derek Anderson NEXT??

  • Joe Gomez

    Axedick… Cutting hair? Hahaha… Just because I own establishments that have hairstylists doesnt mean I have a Cosmetology license dipshit! Hahaha.. Thats just one of my business ventures bitch. I am still a State Peace officer and still part of the military numbnuts just to get that straight. So what do you do besides get fucked in the ass at SeaCliff for a living. Yea motherfucker, how does it feel to be attacked for a change? You didnt agree with my opinions and you took it personal. Now im taking it personal and you dont like it huh? LMFAO! Listen you fucking idiot, I may not agree with alot of people here but I dont go on personal attacks unless they have called me out first. Unlucky for you, you had a personal problem with me. Therefore, I have a personal problem with you. Talking about reality motherfucker? Thats the reality. So Fuck you motherfucker because your 49ers knowledge is 3rd grade level at best. You and #1 Fag can go suck a monkey's dick for all I care. Hahahaha…

    Bring it on bitch, Im just getting started with you…hahaha..and wheres your buddy #1 Fag anyway? Not here to back you up? Poor baby!

    You really think I would of loved to give Haynesworth $100 million? Man your as stupid as I thought. I have always stood ground that I dont want to break the bank (Clements money) on anybody. That doesnt mean we should sit back and not get in the mix. We have to negotiate with Veterans who can contribute and try to land a reasonable contract. Not every FA is going to ask for crazy money.

    Bobby Boucher.. Lets see what TJ is commanding first before we decide anything. I know theres not too many choices but there are choices. Just like James said, and what ive been saying for months, WE NEED A VETERAN WR! I hear Laveurneus Coles is available. Lets not drop the bank on somebody but we need to atleast see what they are asking for. If its not too ridiculous we need to go get them.

  • Bobby Boucher

    Morgan, Singletary gives me chills up my spine, when he talks about what his vision is for our team. It has been a long time since I have felt the level of excitement for our team, more than I do right now. This man that we have hired as our head coach is going to do everything in his power(which seems to be immense) to make us champions again. We saw what he did with a bunch of losers, halfway into another disappointing season. He made them believe in themselves. He made them believe in him. Did you see the reaction when Jed gave him the job after the win against the Redskins? The players want to give this coach what he is striving for…excellence. The momentum that Singletary has built in our organization can sweep us right into the superbowl next year with the players already on the roster(maybe a tweak here or there). And if we can improve that roster;which I'm sure he intends to do. We can make it even more impressive. Arizona did it. Are we that much below them talent wise? What if we take their QB? What if we take their under-used #1 type receiver?

  • 9nerfan

    chris canty would be nice. so would sean jones. i hope brian orakpo falls to us with the 10 pick.

  • 9nerfan

    anyone for that roy williams trade. rumor is that cowboys trying to trade him.

  • Texas9er

    Its nice to see that not just anyone can get on here now. which Roy williams are you talking about? If its the Saftey Roy Williams we would be better signing Merton Hanks out of retirement because he is Garbage.

  • Bobby Boucher

    Just keep it all on the level and we won't have a problem. No games, except NFL football.

  • Bobby Boucher

    It's easy to make mistakes with draft picks. If you admit you wanted Jarrett(which you did) I won't say a bad word about you;unless you break the no shit talking deal first. I was right about Willis(so were alot of guys on this site). Can't say I rooted for Kentwan, but hope he turns out alright. The draft is a sticky bitch. Texas, if you admit that you wanted Jarrett I will leave you alone. You can't predict who will work out and who won't(most of the time).

  • Texas9er

    Man I am telling you honestly I have never used any other names on here. I will put that on my mommas life I have never used any other names on here. I was a fan of Patrick willis Since i saw that hit he did to the running back from LSU. 2 years ago I moved on my own and didn't have the internet. I would get on at least 1 or 2 times a month. I never liked Dwayne Jarrett. Now you can choose not to believe me but I am giving you my word. I never said that. the only other player I wanted was Joe Thomas but I knew he would drop to us at 11. Can we please drop this. I am also a man of my word.

  • Texas9er

    As you can see I am a defensive guy( I like Defense) I never wanted Jarrett, if I was to pick anyone on offense it would be the oline. I don't know how may times I can say this I didn't want Jarett. I can't stand USC. I think their players are over hyped and overrated. Look at Mike Williams, Reggie Bush. Ever since the 05 championship game when Texas got disrespected my the media the days leading up to the national championship i counldn't stand USC. Ther are some players from that school that I have respect for or even wanted them to be 49ers (Taylor Mays) but that doesn't happen very often. I don't know if you notice but most of the players from Texas. I believe that football players are made in Texas. This state bleeds football and if you came here and just watched how these kids prepare for highschool football it would blow your mind. This is a football state, Our beloved Mike Singletary is born and raised in Texas. Back to my point, I never ever said I wanted Jarett now please can we drop this.

  • Bobby Boucher

    We can't drop it until you admit it. I set it up so you wouldn't look bad for admitting it, but can't let it go. You have been on here hyping WR every draft. Ryan remembers my Rashaun Woods commment to you. About how you have his jersey in your closet. Dude, I know who you have been on here. If you want a clean break with me, then just admit where you have been wrong. When I'm wrong I can admit it. If you don't, then we are never going to see eye to eye. Sorry. This new security thing could be a blessing in disguise for this website. I'm thinking, they did it to see if they couldn't weed out some of the trash on here. I'm fine with that, but you can't hide behind screen names anymore. Singletary admitted that he didn't want Willis at first. Why can't you?

  • Texas9er

    What do I have to tell you. I never said that. I will put it on God, Jesus, My Mom, My brother, My family my friends, on the 49ers that I never said that. I have always been Texas9er. I wasn't even on this website when the 49ers drafted Rashaun Woods. I don't want to fight with you anymore. Will you please just take my word that I never said that. Trust me if I said that I would be glad to admit i was wrong. I said just this past year that I liked Mike Nolan and Believed he could get the job done. Well all know that that never happended and I was all for him getting fired. Look man, you can acuse me of saying this all you want bbut I never said that. Im sure the guys on here are getting tired of all the shit that has been going on here for a while. Lets just talk football.

  • Bobby Boucher

    I have no problem just talking football. But, you are perpetuating a farce. Jarrett was your draft pick in 07. If you admit it, we can move on. If not we can get ignorant again. Makes no difference to me.WR has beem a concern on this team for some time. There is no shame in admitting your mistakes. As Nike says, just do it.

  • Bobby Boucher

    obviously I meant been..not beem. Sorry, I've beem drinking a few Coors lights this evening.

  • Josh Morgan

    Josh Morgan WILL be our #1 next year and I am fine with it. Watch and see you all will be on the bandwagon soon enough. High priced big names dont always equate to championships. They are for teams that are only a player away which we are not we need help everywhere. Thats why I am totally on board with the way FA is being approached this year. Grab a couple respectable low end guys continue to build and once most of the pieces are in place have enough money left when someone is there to push you over the top. I know it has been a long time for us but we were in salary cap hell and are really only 3 years removed. Be patient as Rome was not built in a day! Thoughts?

  • Bobby Boucher

    Texas,

    If you would just admit one of your many mistakes on here, I would leave you alone. Unfortunately, you are sticking to your lies, and horseshit excuses. Come clean or else there is no reason for me to play nice with you. People are sick of the beef, I guess that's why they went with a new security system on this site. Me, you, Gomez, and #1, all kind of blew up in each others faces the other night. Coincidence we have a new log-in company a couple days later? I think not. I will play nice if you will..just fess up to your mistakes! I did!

  • Bobby Boucher

    Our young Wrs showed up big time last year. Morgan as well as Hill. If Bruce dosen’t come back, I wouldn’t be overly concerned going into the season with Battle, Hill, Morgan, Ziegler, and a couple new guys.

  • Bobby Boucher

    Don’t get me wrong I hope Bruce does come back, but I’m glad the team is not going after TJ. Whoever gets him is going to spend a shit load of cash for a #2 receiver. Even though he’s a #2, I still hope the Seahawks don’t get him.

  • Josh Morgan

    I agree Bobby I am fine with what we have as long as we improve elsewhere. Morgan shined last year while battling many injuries. He had that staph infection and lost a tremendous amount of weight plus the groin issue plagued him and he was still very very productive for us. Imagine when he is 100%. I just dont get why others dont see it? I will gladly eat my words if I am wrong but I hope I am not the sky is the limit esp. if he stops dropping easy ones. Hill finally got a shot and was also very productive. I think we are far better at WR than most people think.

  • Bobby Boucher

    Exactly. Trust our coach. We finally have one who deserves our trust. Does anyone seriously think that Mike Singletary dosen’t know who he has already, and who we need to add in order to compete?
    Everyone thinks they’re an expert. They know all our needs, they know who sucks and who dosen’t, and just constantly criticize everything. My motto: sit back and enjoy the show because it’s about to get really interesting very soon. 09 baby!!

  • Josh Morgan

    Bravo Bobby Bravo!!! Plus who wants an ego driven big name overpriced WR when we are going to focus on running the ball. That is a recipe for disaster. Why? cause what do you think will happen when he is not getting the ball enough? I am not interested in that type of player anymore. Stick with the youngsters one will pan out soon enough then give him the money cause he will have respect in the locker room already and can teach others how to get the big money contract the right way.

  • 9nerfan

    its safetey roy williams.

  • 9nerfan

    im o.k with morgan and hill as our reciever. they both showed promise. im not against bruce coming back cuz that will be a plus. but if he doesnt, i think hill and morgan can hold their own. i’d rather have a pass rusher anyways. if sing wants to sit on whatever points we score than we need the defense to make sure that the other team dont score more than us. anyone know whats going on with takeo?

  • AXEGRINDER

    I heard on FoxSports that the Niners and Takeo already agreed to a two year deal. Don’t know for sure though. I hope it’s true.

    I’m glad they signed Norris. That guy can clear some holes for Frank.

  • 9nerfan

    im glad he’s back. i didnt feel to comfortable with zak keasy lead blocking for frank gore. i hope thats true about takeo. excellent compliment to patrick willis.

  • AXEGRINDER

    I agree with Josh Morgan and Bobby in regards to Singletary. He deserves trust. I don’t believe the word failure is in this guy’s vocabulary. I’m feeling good about our chances next year.

  • Joe Gomez

    “Josh Morgan and Jason Hill show loads of potential but they cannot be fully counted on to step up and start yet.”

    James I totally agree with this. Ive been saying this all along. Morgan and Hill are young and are still learning. We need to get in a veteran especially if Bruce is going to depart. Again I dont think we should break the bank but we need to make some talks with people. #1 Fag and his buddy Josh Morgan (Which is most likely the same person) thinks Morgan is the solution. He is sadly mistaken, they are improving but still a ways away to be a legit starter. Man your just finding out about the Takeo news Axepussy? Damn your fucking slow. Hey #1 Fag (Josh Morgan), Bobby “Adams Sandlers bitch” Boucher im here to stay bitches! Hahahaha!

  • Bobby Boucher

    Glad to see that Takeo is on board. Hey Joe, what top tier receiver do you think that we can get for a fair price? You must have someone in mind if you’re so sure were doing a bad job not signing him. TJ? Come on! Someone is going to way over pay for that fluffy headed #2. It’s not feasible. Forget it!

  • Texas9er

    Adam Shien of Sirus said he thinks the 49ers are the next team on the rise and a contender for the playoffs next year. Its the first time I ever heard anything good out of his mouth about the 49ers. I normally can’t stand his ass and his horrible voice but if he is starting to jump on the wagon Im all for it. Don’t be surprise if more media types follow his lead and pick the 49ers to be a sleeper team next year but this is news we true 49er fans already know. Lets kick some ass next year 49ers. 10-6, NFC west champs.

  • Texas9er

    I saw on espn that the 49ers were in Talks with Kurt Warner about being the starter next year for the 49ers. From what I have read the Cardinals and Warner are not close to signing. What do you guys think of him being a short term solution with the 49ers?

  • Bobby Boucher

    Where did you get that info??? First of all, we are not going to sign Kurt Warner….ever. Don’t know if you’re making shit up, but it sure sounds like it.

  • Texas9er

    look on espn and 49erswebzone smart ass.

  • Texas9er

    Don’t question my 49er knowledge again. I stay on my game 100% and you can ask any vet on this site that my info is legit and I don’t make shit up.

  • Bobby Boucher

    Texas is right. Don’t know how much stock to put into the report, but it is on 49erswebzone reported by espn.

  • Bobby Boucher

    The Warner thing, I don’t even know what to think. It makes no sense for us to spend big money on a pass orientated QB when everything we have been told about the new offensive philosophy is run. We bring back Norris, the bruiser, to lead for Gore in our run orientated offense. Then we bring in Warner? The part that does make sense is that:1)We take away the Cardinal’s(who we must unseat to win the division) quarterback. Good luck getting back to the superbowl with Leinart. 2) The fucking guy took his team to the superbowl when nobody thought they could do it. 3)Who better to teach up our young guys? It’s a hell of an upgrade over Dilfer. How much would we have to spend to make this happen? Is it even possible? Don’t know what to think about this. If it comes to pass; Mc Cloughan really did have his fingers crossed when he talked to the media. He said we would not go after a big name QB. But if we knew we were going to, why would he tell everyone?????????????????????????????????????????????

  • 9nerfan

    well they interviewed him earlier and he did say another nfc west team contacted him but he didnt want to say who it was. tell u the truth, if the price is right, why not. taking him away from a division rival is o.k.

  • James Jones

    Hey Medford, I am well aware that Battle is not a #1 receiver. I said if Bruce retires then he would be our most seasoned receiver. I never implied that he was a #1. Also when Battle has ever “had his day as a #1 receiver” is beyond me. He has never been placed at the top of the depth chart on the 49ers. Seasoned means that he would be the teams most aged veteran at the wide receiver position.

    Also if you read the article in full you would see that I wrote specifically about the need for more talent at WR.

    There really is no reason for the team to sign Warner in my mind. He would not make much of a difference on this team as it stands right now.

    I believe that Morgan and Hill will be the starters at some point however I think that in 2009 there needs to be at least one other veteran receiver on the team leading the way and showing them how to play the position the right way. Jerry Rice for special receivers coach? If the Lakers can have Kareem schooling Andrew Bynum why can’t the Niners so the same with Rice? Just dreaming.

    I love the Spikes signing, it helps the front seven out immensely and the contract was good as well. Willis and Spikes together again will be great.

  • Josh Morgan

    First of all I think Joe may have a slight bit of common sense. Yes it is me. Guess what Joe heres a shocker for you. I am all for Kurt Warner. Do I think its going to happen? No. But if it does that makes Bruce resign and we are good to go. Sign a backup for Gore. Dont forget coach Raye said he envisions the Duke as an Antonio Gates type TE. We have no idea what he can do as Nolan never unleashed him. I know he has to work on his hands but he is a legitimate deep threat.

  • Bobby Boucher

    James, I think people forget that we even have Battle. He didn’t play last year, and without Bruce things look pretty slim at WR. However, with Bruce I don’t think we need to adress that position too much. Bring in another guy or two that could have an upside, and that’s that. With Warner, I don’t know how much credit to give this report, but when you think about it, why not? And can you imagine if he brought Boldin with him? Boldin clearly has a problem with AZ, and might entertain the option just to spite them. Glad Spikes is back too. Why didn’t we sign him before free agency began? We knew we wanted him, and he wanted to be back. Why did they wait till he was on the open market for one day?

  • Josh Morgan

    All I have to say is everybody stop and close their eyes. Now envision Pink Floyd on the stage. Hear the sound in the background “Lunatic Fringe I know your out there” Can you hear it.

  • Joe Gomez

    Josh Morgan. So it is you huh? Man I guess you really are behind Morgan. Man that motherfucker is going to be a stud, but not this year. Hes still got a learning curve along with J. Hill. Do I like him? Fuck yea I like him, but we need to get some motherfucker a good look in the FA market like TJ or Coles. Warner would be great, but I doubt he will come. I wanted him long time ago, but we were busy doing the “Alex Smith” project. Actually when Brees was available I thought we shouldve of went after him. Im all for bringing in veteran players who can improve the roster AT THE RIGHT PRICE!!!! Let me say that again just so Axebitch understands….

    AT THE RIGHT PRICE! Got that Axe? You retarded motherfucker!

    Hahahahaha!

  • Josh Morgan

    Yes James the one other veteran receivers name will be Bruce hopefully. One year. You dont think he was productive last year? Come on look at the stats. With 2 different QB’s. I dont get it. Enlighten me.

  • Joe Gomez

    I thought this site made a change for the better, then Joe Gomez shows his ignorant ugly face, stirring up shit again.

    Lets put this on record since Axefuck forgot all of a sudden.
    YOU ATTACKED ME BITCH! MAN I CANT BELIEVE HOW STUPID YOU ARE!

    Stirring up shit? Man I was minding my fucking business writing on this site and you took your bit ass spoon and stirred the fuck out of the SHIT! So please, get the fucking story right. Your one dumb motherfucker from queer ass Sea Cliff. Only fags live in Sea Cliff.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  • Bobby Boucher

    But if Bruce comes back, why do we need TJ? Maybe Singletary has a feeling after talking to him, that he will be. Once again, we can go on as many different websites as we want. And think that we are completely informed, but the powers that be are the only ones who really know what is going on. They are the ones that talk to these guys. They are the ones who have the inside knowledge. We will never have that because in the NFL, you have to hide your cards. Just like in poker. Telling the truth for a guy like Scott or Mike, is tenative. They can’t answer all the questions and still get done what needs to be done. They have to lie; they have to mislead. What if this Warner shit is true? Scott said we would not go after a big name QB. What else would he say if he had an inkling that we could catch one. Why show our hand?

  • Joe Gomez

    Axepussy <~~~~~ Loves to stir other peoples shit up but doesnt like people stirring his shit up! Hahahahaha! What a fucking moron!

  • Josh Morgan

    Ok Joe here is one for you. NFL draft. O lineman or skillplayer? Just to test the waters on where we are at as far as this team moving forward other than FA. I want a Jesse Sapolu, Guy McIntyre, Harris Barton,Steve Wallace Jim Burt Oline. It all starts in the trenches. Dline too.

  • Josh Morgan

    Bobby I am with you. Glass half full. I believe in Singletary. I like the way he reacted with the fans at the State of the Franchise speech. Until he shows he cant do it I am on board with them all. They stress teamwork and respect and believe he will win with this team.

  • CRADOK

    Ryan the 1st, where you been man? You have been on this site for as long as I can remember. You know your NFL football. Where do yo think the 9er’s will go with the 10th pick?

  • Texas9er

    I don’t know about you guys buy I don’t want a flashy offense. I want a balanced offense and a defense that puts people on the back of carts in every game. I want this defense to destroy anything and everything in its path. I believe we are on that path. To take Kurt Warner away from the Cardinals is a plus. I personally think we have the QB on our roster to take us to the promise land. AKA Shuan Hill, but we need to be working on our defense. I believe that we have a average recieving corp. With the style of offense the 49ers will be using you can win with that. Look at the Ravens, Titans, Patiots, Eagles, Atlanta, Minnasota, Miami. All of these teams have made it to the playoffs in the past 2 years with an average WR corp. Like Morgan said lets build up the online and Dline, you will not win in this league unless you have that. All of the pass happy teams New Orleans, Dallas, Denver, Cinci, Tampa, didn’t make it. With the exeption of Arizona that style of offense puts people in the seats but doesn’t put W’s on the board when it matters most, In December and the playoffs. We don’t need to waste money on T.J. or any other high priced free agent. I think we have the tools right now to get the job done.( with a good Draft)

    Bobby I know this is going to come as a shock to you but I agree with you 100%. Ever since he took over this team I have a different feeling now than when Nolan Was here. I actually thought they would win every game they played in when Singletary took over. Its been along time since I have had this feeling. I really think we can do something next year. I wanted Singletary to take over the Baylor job when it came open last year but I’m glad he stayed. I love Baylor and would have loved him to go back a make that team good but I love the 49ers more. Its, God, Family, The 49ers and then my friends. Bobby me and you have have our differences on here but it all comes down to one thing we both love this team. Even though we may disagree on some things I think it is time to bury the hatchett and start talking ball instead of insulting each other which gets us nowhere.

  • Texas9er

    Agree

  • Bobby Boucher

    It would also be nice if you admitted that you wanted Jarrett 2 years ago. I have been on this site as long as you have, and I will admit when I’m wrong(see your Warner post above). I didn’t make that up. And you used to be Redandgold. Maybe RedandGold4ever, I really can’t remember. I have posted on this site under different names. But only extremely obvious ones. Like when I fuck with you and post as Texasbastard. Or congratulate myself posted as Crackrock22. I do it to be funny. And I hope people get that.

  • Bobby Boucher

    I was hoping that some senior members of this blog(Ryanthefirst) would come to my defense, on this issue, but I guess I’m on my own. We have had to listen to Texas for quite some time now,and I don’t think we all agree with what he is saying. I guess I’m alone, but could sure use some back up.

  • Texas9er

    I guess you are. You show me some proof or have someone else say what you are saying then I will leave it alone. But you don't you have no proof that I said that. Just because you think I am some one else doesn't mean you can accuse me of shit I never said. The only WR I hyped up in the last 4 years was Limus Sweed. I guess you don't want to take my word for it. Im done talking about this with you. If you don't want to believe me than thats fine don't, I don't care. Are you all of a sudden the Draft Police on here or what?

  • Ryan The 1st

    I don't know man, you do make some similar comments to that guy that was saying Jarrett was the next GREAT THING! However, there is no real way to prove it because you can change names easily and no one is going to bother looking up your email address (something you have to give to join the site). I don't know for a FACT that it was you. Bobby Boucher did you really think I would lay you out to dry? I am not trying to flame, but you guys are both niner fans and want to just see them win. IMWHO I say just bury it. In my worthless opinion the niners need to get Canty and leave the rest of the money to sign extensions for the players we already have since they OBVIOUSLY aren't going after HOUSH.

  • Joe Gomez

    Chiefs just traded for Cassel and Vrabel and gave up a 2nd rounder.

    Pretty good deal. Props for Kansas City. We just signed a 26 years old WR. Brandon Jones from Tennessee. Hes 6'1" and weights 212 Lbs. 26. His numbers last year are decent: 41 Rec for 449 yards and a touch. Not my idea of bringing in competition at the WR position but hell I guess its better than not bringing in nobody at all.

    Oh by the way Axepussy, I just thought Id say something…

    F U C K Y O U

  • Joe Gomez

    Bobby Boucher, I never had a problem with you man. To be honest I have never seen you on this site before so were straight. We will have different opinions but love the same team. But assholes like Axeprick who personally go after somebody because they dont agree with my opinion then they got something else coming!

    By the way, I got a message for you Axecunt…

    F U C K Y O U !

    Hahahaha… All year long motherfucker!

  • Josh Morgan

    Nobody wants or needs acceptance from you. Your personal opinion about others means nothing. Keep it football for Gods sake.

  • Josh Morgan

    I just read that Canty will be visiting us on Monday.

  • Texas9er

    I don't like someone calling me a liar. I just want to talk football. We had an agreement that Bobby and Myself would stop the bullshit and just talk football. Then he starts shit again. What part of I just want to talk football does he not under stand. I don't want to fight with anyone on here we are all 49er fans. We should be saving our remarks for Cowboy and Seahawk fans and even Raider fans but I have yet to meet one. Bobby for the last time can we just stop this shit and talk football. I had a beef with Joe about a month ago and now we are cool why can't you do the same?

  • West.

    Signed:

    FB Moran Norris (Lions)

    DB Allen Rossum (49ers)

    LB Takeo Spikes (49ers)

    WR Brandon Jones (Titans)

    Reported Interest:

    DE Chris Canty (Cowboys)

    DE Demetric Evans (Redskins)

    DE Kenny Peterson (Broncos)

    QB Kurt Warner (Cardinals)

    I'm not buying that Kurt Warner will be a 9er…. Would be GREAT for us, An a Blow to the Cards….. I just dont see it happening

  • Josh Morgan

    West Maiocco is now reporting that Warner is sceduled to visit us on Monday and that the 9ers are very serious about this. I dont think it will happen either but at least we can drive the price up and put some more salary cap pressure on the Cards. They have an unhappy Boldin that wants money to. You never know this may turn out good.

  • MSouza

    If we end up signing Warner we could use the two years that he plays to solve our QB problem. If it is Alex Smith, so be it, give him a couple years to actually learn how to play. Keep Hill on the roster and draft a guy in the late rounds and groom him on the practice squad.

  • Los Banos Jerry

    I want Warner, dump A Smith, keep Hill as #2, Warner gets dinged

    up. Draft Patrick White with our 3rd pick.

  • Bobby Boucher

    Ryan, totally agree on Canty. They have done good so far, but that would turn good to great. Don't think there is any way Warner lands here.

  • Texas9er

    I have been trying to bury it for the past 2 days but he won’t leave it alone.

  • Josh Morgan

    Gomez you were brain washed by Mike Martz. I told you that we would not even attempt to sign TJ or Deuce. I just comment on what I read. From what I have been reading we know 2 things.

    #1 we will be a running team.
    #2 Vernon will be utilized more in the offense.

    That to me equates to not needing a big money receiver. I hope we build a great O-line so that whoever is our QB has time to throw the ball. Thats where it all starts. Draft Oline.

  • Josh Morgan

    Ignore him Texas there is nothing you can do through a computer screen anyway. There are others on here to talk to. Not everyone likes me either but I simply do not care.

  • Josh Morgan

    It has been confirmed through multiple reliable sources today that the 49ers continue to pursue a contract with Cardinals free-agent quarterback Kurt Warner.
    Warner is scheduled to visit the 49ers, perhaps on Monday, according to sources close to the situation. Warner and the Cardinals remain about $3 million to $4 million apart on a two-year deal, according to a report in today’s Arizona Republic. The Cardinals have offered $20 million over two years, according to the paper. Warner’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, is reportedly seeking around $29 million.

  • Ryan The 1st

    The Warner thing is a good idea because it is only a two year deal and this also puts pressure on Alex Smith to get the contract restructured or GOOD LUCK finding an opportunity somewhere else. IF they sign Warner then I see them cutting Alex Smith…why keep him when you already have Shaun Hill signed for the same amount of time that Warner will be with the team. The niners will draft a QB if they sign Warner and say BYE to Alex Smith. The niners need to make Chris Canty a niner ASAP. That guy is talented and would really create some flexibility in the draft. NOW, the problem with Warner returning is that he is 38, not the long term solution, and OH YEAH, we are still playing receiver roulet. It doesn’t seem to me that McCloughan really values receivers. Don’t get me wrong, Morgan and Jason Hill are good, but they have yet to prove that they can be our one two punch. Brandon Jones was a good signing, but I still think we kind of overpaid.
