Bryan-Admin: 
Ok Folks... thank you all for bearing with us to get some of the technical stuff sorted out... We have a very rare opportunity here to see how 4 of the top 49ers writers, and for that matter "legends" interact with each other. I know you have all been looking forward to this... so without further waiting ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:09 Bryan-Admin
9:10
Bryan-Admin: 
We'd like to welcome Matt B, Matt M, and Dan B. We are anticipating Kevin L joining us shortly. Thank you all for being here ... it's a great pleasure! Both the fans of 49ersparadise.com and 49erswebzone.com as well as those that frequent your blogs really appreciate it!
Monday April 19, 2010 9:10 Bryan-Admin
9:11
Dan Brown: 
The feeling is mutual.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:11 Dan Brown
9:11
MattB_49: 
Glad to be here. Thanks for inviting.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:11 MattB_49
9:11
Bryan-Admin: 
In the past we would forward the questions directly from the fans to you, given repeated topics, we will instead forward a topic for you each to respond to based on the fans input. Fans, please feel free to send topics and questions are way... And here we go!
Monday April 19, 2010 9:11 Bryan-Admin
9:11
Matt Maiocco: 
Nobody told me Bee-Rows was going to be here, too. Oh, well...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:11 Matt Maiocco
9:12
Bryan-Admin: 
The hot topic this offseason is Offensive Line. You've all written about... but where do we stand right now, and what do you think the 9ers might do in the first two rounds of the draft with respect to the OL?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:12 Bryan-Admin
9:14
Dan Brown: 
Rarely are draft-day needs this obvious. The 49ers need a right tackle, right now. I think they have to grab one, pronto, especially if they catch a break and land one of top three. Baalke told us the other day that, historically, there are plenty of tackles deep in the draft. But an overwhelming number of Pro Bowl tackles come from the first round.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:14 Dan Brown
9:14
Matt Maiocco: 
It hinges on what happens in front of them. I think they'd like to get Anthony Davis in the first round. If there are four tackles off the board, certainly, they can go with Mike Iupati at 17. But I think they might wait until the second round to get a right tackle.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:14 Matt Maiocco
9:14
MattB_49: 
It's looking more likely that the top four OTs will be gone when they pick. Do they take G Mike Iupati and hope that he can play right tackle? The 49ers hosted him in Santa Clara last week. ... They also could take USC T Charles Brown at pick No. 17 or perhaps trade down for Rodger Saffold.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:14 MattB_49
9:15
Matt Maiocco: 
To play off what Bee-Rows said, if they can find a trade partner at 17, they can move back and get a Saffold, Ducasse, Campbell or Brown.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:15 Matt Maiocco
9:15
Bryan-Admin: 
So we have 3 great opinions there... The obvious follow up then... The first round is hot. Do we trade up for RT - and pay big, or do we wait for round 2? Given that LT is a hotter commoedity
Monday April 19, 2010 9:15 Bryan-Admin
9:16
Dan Brown: 
I happen to think Anthony Davis will still be there, maybe even at 17. I'd pull the trigger and hope that MIke Singletary's tough-love approach works as well as it did on another question-mark guy named Davis.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:16 Dan Brown
9:16
Matt Maiocco: 
If they needed a left tackle, they could trade up and maybe pay $15 million more guaranteed to get one of those guys. But because they're seeking a right tackle, I think they can hold steady or move back.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:16 Matt Maiocco
9:16
MattB_49: 
I don't think they will give up draft picks in what is considered a strong draft to trade up, but i won't say it's off the table ... One guy to look out for in Round 2 is Ole Miss's John Jerry. He's a mauler -- just what Singletary wants, and he looked good at RT in Mobile ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:16 MattB_49
9:17
Bryan-Admin: 
So on that note... do you feel the team will consider trading down and accumulating picks?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:17 Bryan-Admin
9:17
Matt Maiocco: 
Yes.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:17 Matt Maiocco
9:17
Bryan-Admin: 
Any of you disagree?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:17 Bryan-Admin
9:18
Dan Brown: 
Not me.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:18 Dan Brown
9:18
MattB_49: 
Again, I think there will be a lot of teams hoping to trade down and accumulate more picks. Which means there probably won't be an opportunity to do so ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:18 MattB_49
9:18
Bryan-Admin: 
This is considered one of the deepest drafts in years. Any sleepers that catch your eyes?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:18 Bryan-Admin
9:19
MattB_49: 
Brandon Spikes -- he might be available in the 4th round. He'd give the D a certain nastiness and could be the heir to his cousin's position.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:19 MattB_49
9:20
Dan Brown: 
As for Spikes, Takeo has already put in a big plug for him. (Of course, Takeo also put in a plug for CJ Spiller.)
Monday April 19, 2010 9:20 Dan Brown
9:20
Matt Maiocco: 
I mentioned CB Patrick Robinson a week or so ago. I'm not sure he's a "sleeper," but I think he's vastly underrated -- mostly because of his severe speech impediment.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:20 Matt Maiocco
9:21
Dan Brown: 
I also kind of like TCU linebacker Daryl Washington. He only has one year as a starter but I think his stock is on the rise.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:21 Dan Brown
9:21
Bryan-Admin: 
On the topic of sleepers, and speech impediments... what is most damming?
Work ethic issues?
Police issues?
Learning disability?
Poor Combine?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:21 Bryan-Admin
9:22
Matt Maiocco: 
Work ethic -- definitely work ethic.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:22 Matt Maiocco
9:22
MattB_49: 
Police issues. Singletary can "cure" work ethic problems. Look at Ahmad Brooks ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:22 MattB_49
9:22
Bryan-Admin: 
Fight it out :)
Monday April 19, 2010 9:22 Bryan-Admin
9:22
MattB_49: 
Nutcracker?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:22 MattB_49
9:22
Bryan-Admin: 
We welcome Kevin Lynch. Kevin please feel free to jump in any time
Monday April 19, 2010 9:22 Bryan-Admin
9:23
Dan Brown: 
I'd actually say police issues. Work ethic is indeed a trouble spot, but, like Barrows just said (faster than me) Singletary can motivate a statue to play hard.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:23 Dan Brown
9:23
MattB_49: 
Welcome, Lynchy!!
Monday April 19, 2010 9:23 MattB_49
9:23
Bryan-Admin: 
I think we fans would love to see a Matt vs Matt nutcracker drill
Monday April 19, 2010 9:23 Bryan-Admin
9:23
kevinl_49: 
thanks, sorry for the delay
Monday April 19, 2010 9:23 kevinl_49
9:23
Matt Maiocco: 
Brooks played six games at the end of last season. That's a bit early to declare he's been cured of anything.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:23 Matt Maiocco
9:23
kevinl_49: 
Hello everybody.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:23 kevinl_49
9:23
Dan Brown: 
Hey, lynchy.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:23 Dan Brown
9:23
Bryan-Admin: 
How do you all feel about Nate Davis and his development?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:23 Bryan-Admin
9:24
Matt Maiocco: 
Welcome to the fun, Lynchy. Is it true you were detained at the Mexico City airport?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:24 Matt Maiocco
9:24
kevinl_49: 
I see Maiocco is already taking on all comers
Monday April 19, 2010 9:24 kevinl_49
9:24
Bryan-Admin: 
Would the 49ers cut Davis in favor of? Jimmy Clausen?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:24 Bryan-Admin
9:24
kevinl_49: 
Yes, it's true!
Monday April 19, 2010 9:24 kevinl_49
9:24
MattB_49: 
I think they'd reduce his workload this summer and try to hide Davis on the p-squad ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:24 MattB_49
9:24
Dan Brown: 
I think Davis quietly made a very strong impression last season. The team was smart enough not to throw too much out of him too early. But anyone who saw him in the preseason can recognize the talent there. He's a keeper.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:24 Dan Brown
9:25
kevinl_49: 
I would certainly hope not. But I think there's growing questions about his ability to learn a NFL playbook. I don't like Clausen
Monday April 19, 2010 9:25 kevinl_49
9:25
Matt Maiocco: 
I don't think there have been any surprises with Nate Davis. They don't have to get him ready to play now. Depending on how his exhibition season goes, the 49ers might be able to cut him and bring him back to the practice squad.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:25 Matt Maiocco
9:25
Bryan-Admin: 
Do you think his spatial capacity may help him through the playbook issues?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:25 Bryan-Admin
9:26
kevinl_49: 
I don't think it helps him.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:26 kevinl_49
9:26
MattB_49: 
He seemed to pick it up just fine for last year's preseason ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:26 MattB_49
9:26
Matt Maiocco: 
He worked with just a fraction of the playbook during the exhibition season last year.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:26 Matt Maiocco
9:27
Bryan-Admin: 
Moving forward...
Does the 49ers recent trade (Ted Ginn) eliminate Spiller from consideration? There are concerns on his ability to field punts.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:27 Bryan-Admin
9:27
kevinl_49: 
He did, but I know they really pared things down for him at Ball State. How much can you do that in the NFL?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:27 kevinl_49
9:27
Matt Maiocco: 
I don't see why it would change anything. If they liked Spiller before, they're going to like him now. You don't draft a guy in the first round just on his return ability.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:27 Matt Maiocco
9:27
49ers fans ... who would win in a nutcracker? Matt M or Matt B?
Matt M
 ( 52% )
Matt B
 ( 48% )

Monday April 19, 2010 9:27 
9:28
MattB_49: 
I think the Dolphins eliminated punts from Ginn's repertoire because they didn't want a starting receiver in that role. it sounded like he wants to resume that for the 49ers ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:28 MattB_49
9:28
Dan Brown: 
My friends with the Dolphins say Ginn is pretty shaky on punts. But they also say he's one of the fastest people they've ever seen on kickoffs.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:28 Dan Brown
9:28
Matt Maiocco: 
I just voted for Matt B winning the nutcracker. I think he would have the advantage because of all those ballet lessons his mom made him take.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:28 Matt Maiocco
9:29
kevinl_49: 
I don't know if a speedback/ slot receiver is on their radar early in the draft.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:29 kevinl_49
9:29
MattB_49: 
Those lessons really strengthened my calves ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:29 MattB_49
9:29
Dan Brown: 
I voted for Barrows, too, because he least has directions to the gym.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:29 Dan Brown
9:29
Bryan-Admin: 
On the idea of receiver, are the 49ers really happy with Morgan as a number 2?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:29 Bryan-Admin
9:30
kevinl_49: 
They seem to be, but that's a mistake. They should be looking to strengthen that position. Although Morgan is on the rise.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:30 kevinl_49
9:30
MattB_49: 
He's the best downfield blocker on the team. I think they'd like to see him rise up and be more consistent. he's still learning the position.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:30 MattB_49
9:30
More Nutcracker: Lynch vs Brown
Lynch
 ( 53% )
Brown
 ( 47% )

Monday April 19, 2010 9:30 
9:30
Matt Maiocco: 
Yes, I think they're very happy. He has really improved as a route-runner and pass-catcher. He's a very good blocker. And he understands the system well enough that he helped Crabtree after he finally signed the deal.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:30 Matt Maiocco
9:30
MattB_49: 
Man, I didn't know who to take in the Lynchy-Brown duel.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:30 MattB_49
9:31
Bryan-Admin: 
At receiver, who is the weakest link?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:31 Bryan-Admin
9:31
kevinl_49: 
Brown would be dirty
Monday April 19, 2010 9:31 kevinl_49
9:31
Dan Brown: 
He was a bit of a disappointment. Just 527 yards, and that was with Crabtree gone for the first quarter of the season. There's more there and he seems to like the idea of establishing a nice duo with Crabrtree.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:31 Dan Brown
9:32
kevinl_49: 
I worry about Ginn and his committment. Jerry Sullivan, the receivers coach wants committed guys.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:32 kevinl_49
9:32
MattB_49: 
Ginn. He has a case of the dropsies and I-don't-wanna-get-hitsies ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:32 MattB_49
9:32
Bryan-Admin: 
What about tight end. Will the 49ers look to provide some back up for Davis? Will Davis ever learn to catch?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:32 Bryan-Admin
9:32
Dan Brown: 
Technically, there's still a locker for Isaac Bruce. I predict he has a very quiet year.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:32 Dan Brown
9:32
Matt Maiocco: 
Weakest link? Hmmmm. Well, there passing game has to be good enough to get the No. 3 wideout involved.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:32 Matt Maiocco
9:32
Bryan-Admin: 
lol @ Brown
Monday April 19, 2010 9:32 Bryan-Admin
9:32
Matt Maiocco: 
Harsh. Didn't Vernon Davis catch 78 passes last season?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:32 Matt Maiocco
9:33
Bryan-Admin: 
And drop 87? well... not quite.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:33 Bryan-Admin
9:33
kevinl_49: 
Delanie Walker is a tremendous backup, and I think they will still use a lot of two tights with both of them spread out.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:33 kevinl_49
9:33
MattB_49: 
I think a third tight end will be on the draft docket. but he'll be an excellent blocker ... like Bear Pascoe ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:33 MattB_49
9:33
Dan Brown: 
Davis' hands are WAY better than I thought they'd be. Those first few seasons were rough. But give the guy credit: He stays after practice a LOT and catches balls out of a Jugs machine. He put in the work.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:33 Dan Brown
9:33
Bryan-Admin: 
So if the 49ers field Morgan, Crabtree, Davis, Walker and Gore... is there a need for another offensive playmaker?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:33 Bryan-Admin
9:33
Matt Maiocco: 
If Bear Pascoe were an excellent blocker, he'd still be on the team. The 49ers' coaches were quite disappointed in him.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:33 Matt Maiocco
9:34
MattB_49: 
Yeah, i was being sarcastic ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:34 MattB_49
9:34
kevinl_49: 
I don't think he'll ever be Jerry Rice in the hands department, but he had a high catch rate.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:34 kevinl_49
9:34
Bryan-Admin: 
(Folks these guys are definitely not holding punches)
Monday April 19, 2010 9:34 Bryan-Admin
9:34
Matt Maiocco: 
I don't think there's another "need" for an offensive player. But there is a "need" to get more consistent play from the QB position.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:34 Matt Maiocco
9:34
Who should QB the 49ers?
Brown
 ( 3% )
Lynch
 ( 11% )
Maiocco
 ( 45% )
Barrows?
 ( 41% )

Monday April 19, 2010 9:34 
9:35
kevinl_49: 
I think there's always room for a playmaker, particularly a fast slot guy like a Dexter McCluster.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:35 kevinl_49
9:35
MattB_49: 
I think the team could stand to have another back who can run outside the tackles ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:35 MattB_49
9:35
Matt Maiocco: 
Sorry, Bee-Rows.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:35 Matt Maiocco
9:35
Bryan-Admin: 
How about fullback? Are the 49ers happy there?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:35 Bryan-Admin
9:35
MattB_49: 
Keep an eye on Brit Miller at fullback ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:35 MattB_49
9:36
Dan Brown: 
Moran Norris hasn't been the same guy since he paved the way for Gore's big year in 2006. I think they could use an upgrade.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:36 Dan Brown
9:36
kevinl_49: 
I like to see them draft Barrows's guy from Virginia. He's got more receiving and receiving ability than Norris
Monday April 19, 2010 9:36 kevinl_49
9:36
Matt Maiocco: 
For this offense, I don't think it's all that necessary. Maybe a late-round pick, but nothing more than that.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:36 Matt Maiocco
9:36
Bryan-Admin: 
Let's shift focus to the defensive side of the ball. Up front, is it NT or a pass rusher that is the bigger need?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:36 Bryan-Admin
9:37
Dan Brown: 
One more fullback thing: Jimmy Raye DOES like having a versatile hard-nosed FB. He made good use of Tony Richardson back in the day ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:37 Dan Brown
9:37
kevinl_49: 
Pass rusher. They have a good nose and you always need pass rushers. The 49ers need all the help they can get with the pass defense.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:37 kevinl_49
9:37
MattB_49: 
You can never have enough pass rushers, but a nos etackle is critical because he protects Patrick Willis.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:37 MattB_49
9:38
Matt Maiocco: 
Richardson had one season in which he touched the ball. The rest of his career he was nothing but a blocker.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:38 Matt Maiocco
9:38
Dan Brown: 
But a useful blocker, smart guy.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:38 Dan Brown
9:38
Bryan-Admin: 
Is Franklin a long term solution at NT?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:38 Bryan-Admin
9:38
kevinl_49: 
Absolutely. The players think he's one of the best in the league.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:38 kevinl_49
9:39
Dan Brown: 
They better hope so, because Kentwan Balmer doesn't look ready to take over the job anytime soon.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:39 Dan Brown
9:39
MattB_49: 
He should be. But the Niners have so many guys that are due for extensions that not everyone can be taken care of ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:39 MattB_49
9:39
Bryan-Admin: 
Willis, Davis, Franklin ... who are the 49ers going to re-sign?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:39 Bryan-Admin
9:39
Matt Maiocco: 
He might price himself off the team -- or at least into free agency this season. He's making $7M. They have to find someone to take some snaps from him. They're trying Ricky Jean-Francois this offseason.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:39 Matt Maiocco
9:39
kevinl_49: 
They should take care of him because noses are hard to find.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:39 kevinl_49
9:39
Bryan-Admin: 
Jean-Francois has a pretty mean streak himself. Exactly what you need at NT
Monday April 19, 2010 9:39 Bryan-Admin
9:40
Matt Maiocco: 
Definitely, Willis (assuming his remains healthy).
Monday April 19, 2010 9:40 Matt Maiocco
9:40
MattB_49: 
Willis, Davis, Franklin -- in that order. But there's also Goldson, Smith, Lawson, Bass, etc. to think about
Monday April 19, 2010 9:40 MattB_49
9:40
MattB_49: 
Baas ... Sorry, David.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:40 MattB_49
9:40
kevinl_49: 
I would go Willis, Franklin, Davis
Monday April 19, 2010 9:40 kevinl_49
9:40
Matt Maiocco: 
...and don't forget about Morgan.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:40 Matt Maiocco
9:41
Bryan-Admin: 
So if there's no Salary Cap... is that a good thing with a team like this? And perhaps the bigger question... all that talent and we are only an 8-8 team...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:41 Bryan-Admin
9:41
kevinl_49: 
I'm not so sure the team is riddled with talent.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:41 kevinl_49
9:41
MattB_49: 
They'll have an internal cap for sure ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:41 MattB_49
9:41
Matt Maiocco: 
It's a bad thing. They're a low-revenue team and there's no floor on salaries.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:41 Matt Maiocco
9:41
kevinl_49: 
The
Monday April 19, 2010 9:41 kevinl_49
9:42
Dan Brown: 
But that new stadium is coming, so ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:42 Dan Brown
9:42
kevinl_49: 
they have also managed the cap well, so if they want to keep most of those players, they could

9:42
MattB_49: 
Oh, Dan ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:42 MattB_49
9:42
Bryan-Admin: 
Do the 49ers have reasonable insurance for injuries at linebacker? They got hit hard last season... and already enter the season down an Ulbrich
Monday April 19, 2010 9:42 Bryan-Admin
9:42
kevinl_49: 
That's what the third day of the draft is for
Monday April 19, 2010 9:42 kevinl_49
9:43
MattB_49: 
They need to bring in someone who can play Ted in the future ... McKillop is more "Mike" than "ted."
Monday April 19, 2010 9:43 MattB_49
9:43
kevinl_49: 
I agree with Barrows.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:43 kevinl_49
9:43
Matt Maiocco: 
But they're up a Wilhelm, and that's pretty much the same thing. I think they need another inside guy and another OLB/DE.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:43 Matt Maiocco
9:43
Dan Brown: 
No agreeing allowed.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:43 Dan Brown
9:43
kevinl_49: 
I mean Barrows is all wet!
Monday April 19, 2010 9:43 kevinl_49
9:43
Matt Maiocco: 
I agree with Dan on the no-ageeing thing.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:43 Matt Maiocco
9:44
Bryan-Admin: 
We told you folks... this is a unique opportunity into the private lives of 4 incredible men
Monday April 19, 2010 9:44 Bryan-Admin
9:44
Bryan-Admin: 
How about at safety. The team hasn't quite made up for the loss of Tony Parish. Where does Michael Lewis truly stand? Isn't Goldson a bit over rated?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:44 Bryan-Admin
9:44
MattB_49: 
Lewis seems determined to prove that last year's injuries are a fluke. To me, he's the most underrated guy on the team.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:44 MattB_49
9:45
Dan Brown: 
Goldson is a bit overrrated, but not his skills -- if that makes any sense. He's still out of position at times and overagressive at others. But he's a hard hitter with a lot of range, so with a little more discipline he'll be first-rate.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:45 Dan Brown
9:45
kevinl_49: 
I think Goldson could be on the verge of a pro bowl, but the league passing more, they might need a cover SS in the future.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:45 kevinl_49

Bryan-Admin: 
So the quick run down:

17:
2nd round:
You are the 49ers GM (and heck, you almost could be) what is your dream scenario, what is your "ok" scenario.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:45 Bryan-Admin
9:45
Bryan-Admin: 
Sorry was a bit quick on that one... feel free to play the safety game a bit more if you like
Monday April 19, 2010 9:45 Bryan-Admin
9:45
kevinl_49: 
13: Barrows
17: Brown
Monday April 19, 2010 9:45 kevinl_49
9:46
Bryan-Admin: 
for GM and OC respectively.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:46 Bryan-Admin
9:46
Matt Maiocco: 
Dream is ... Haden, A.Davis and Koa Misi (giving my Santa Rosa guy some love).
Monday April 19, 2010 9:46 Matt Maiocco
9:46
MattB_49: 
Dream: Anthony Davis, C.J Spiller, John Jerry

Ok: Haden, Iupati, best safety available
Monday April 19, 2010 9:46 MattB_49
9:46
Dan Brown: 
I go Joe Haden, Anthony Davis and ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:46 Dan Brown
9:46
Bryan-Admin: 
Lynch are you sticking to your beat rivals here? or do you weight in?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:46 Bryan-Admin
9:46
kevinl_49: 
One of the three tackles other than Davis and then Haden
Monday April 19, 2010 9:46 kevinl_49
9:47
MattB_49: 
Why do you hate Davis, Lynchy?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:47 MattB_49
9:47
Matt Maiocco: 
What a hater...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:47 Matt Maiocco
9:47
MattB_49: 
What'd he do to you?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:47 MattB_49
9:47
kevinl_49: 
I don't think he likes the game enough. He has Jonas Jennings with a weight issue written all over him.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:47 kevinl_49
9:48
Dan Brown: 
Say no more!
Monday April 19, 2010 9:48 Dan Brown
9:48
Who is the 49ers bigger flop
Gabe Wilkins
 ( 52% )
Jonas Jennings
 ( 48% )

Monday April 19, 2010 9:48 
9:48
MattB_49: 
Wow! The biggest insult ever. You just inspired him to be a Pro Bowler
Monday April 19, 2010 9:48 MattB_49
9:48
Bryan-Admin: 
We've covered nearly every position on the field... That leaves 2 of the biggest question marks. Balke and Raye. The two biggest question marks? What are your impressions of each
Monday April 19, 2010 9:48 Bryan-Admin
9:49
MattB_49: 
Really hard to get a read on Baalke after only two meetings. ... As for Raye, he needs to be more ambitious this season. No more 1 1/2 yards and a cloud of dust ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:49 MattB_49
9:49
Matt Maiocco: 
Baalke seems to be competent. The question remains if he's going to stand firm when half the room wants him to do something he's not convinced is the right move.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:49 Matt Maiocco
9:49
Dan Brown: 
I'm a Raye skeptic, which is to say I'm not alone. There were lots of problems last year, including questions at QB and the Crabtree situation. But look at Raye's resume as OC and it's tough to find anything to really jump up and down about.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:49 Dan Brown
9:49
kevinl_49: 
I don't know enough about Baalke to make a decision. He works hard and I think how a player looks on film is his top priority, which is good.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:49 kevinl_49
9:50
Matt Maiocco: 
Raye needs figure out what the offense needs to be and not fluctuate 180-degrees on a week-to-week basis.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:50 Matt Maiocco
9:50
kevinl_49: 
I have a bias, because I really think passing is the way to go now, and it seems they want to get back to the run, which is what Raye likes to do.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:50 kevinl_49
9:51
MattB_49: 
I fear Raye and Singletary are stuck in the 1980s ....
Monday April 19, 2010 9:51 MattB_49
9:51
kevinl_49: 
Then they should run the West Coast O
Monday April 19, 2010 9:51 kevinl_49
9:51
Matt Maiocco: 
Ah, yes, when newspapers were thriving ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:51 Matt Maiocco
9:51
MattB_49: 
That wouldn't be such a bad thing, huh? Paulina Poirizkova ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:51 MattB_49
9:51
Bryan-Admin: 
Should the 49ers have gone after Holmgren or Shanny this offseason?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:51 Bryan-Admin
9:52
Matt Maiocco: 
Kevin brings up a point that Steve Young (to name drop) told me a while back. The 49ers have archives of installation film from Walsh, Holmgren, Shanahan that is useless because they don't run the W.C. Offense.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:52 Matt Maiocco
9:52
kevinl_49: 
Hey no agreeing
Monday April 19, 2010 9:52 kevinl_49
9:53
Bryan-Admin: 
Archives that are priceless in the right hands!
Monday April 19, 2010 9:53 Bryan-Admin
9:53
kevinl_49: 
I think WCO is still very viable all the successful NFC offenses run it.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:53 kevinl_49
9:54
MattB_49: 
Hard to run a WC when all of your players have been drafted for smash-mouth ...
Monday April 19, 2010 9:54 MattB_49
9:54
Bryan-Admin: 
I'm not convinced of that Matt ... Walsh always favored hitting first and hitting hard
Monday April 19, 2010 9:54 Bryan-Admin
9:54
Matt Maiocco: 
And to run a WCO, you need a coach who knows it and never changes it regardless of the coordinator.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:54 Matt Maiocco
9:55
kevinl_49: 
They have big receivers and a back who catches, they could do it.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:55 kevinl_49
9:55
MattB_49: 
CJ Spiller????
Monday April 19, 2010 9:55 MattB_49
9:55
kevinl_49: 
You betcha
Monday April 19, 2010 9:55 kevinl_49
9:55
MattB_49: 
Heart be stiller
Monday April 19, 2010 9:55 MattB_49
9:55
Bryan-Admin: 
That's one of the tough parts about defensive coaches... it's hard to find an OC who never wants to be a HC
Monday April 19, 2010 9:55 Bryan-Admin
9:55
Dan Brown: 
Like Norv Turner, for example.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:55 Dan Brown
9:56
Bryan-Admin: 
Norv was just OK though imo even as an OC...then again... he had little to work with
Monday April 19, 2010 9:56 Bryan-Admin
9:56
kevinl_49: 
Good point by Byran, you should take Matt's job.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:56 kevinl_49
9:56
Matt Maiocco: 
That's why the 49ers had visions of hiring an offensive-minded coach to replace Nolan. Then, Singletary had to go and win some games and give the 49ers no other choice.
Monday April 19, 2010 9:56 Matt Maiocco
9:56
MattB_49: 
Who's Byran?
Monday April 19, 2010 9:56 MattB_49

Bryan-Admin: 
(I'll do it!!! )
