  1. Money wise, what would you guys pay Kittle? I'd say around $15 million per year seems fair. I think the top TE salary is around $11 million? (Hunter Henry on the franchise tag). So he blows open the TE market but doesn't get something like $20 million per year.
  2. So we have rumors about being far apart from Kittle in contract demands. And we had rumors of the Niners being interested in Hooper, Engram, & Kmet...ugh just pay the man.
  3. The Jets and Jamal Adams

    That's an interesting point actually. Other notable players from the '17 draft class haven't signed long-term deals yet either: Mahomes, Watson, Godwin, Watt, Garrett, Lattimore, Golladay, Kittle, etc. Only one i can think of is McCaffrey. OTOH...Adams is the only star from the '17 draft class i've read rumors about being traded, and they've persisted for a while
  4. On Instagram, the checkdown is simulating the season on madden. 21 days, 21 weeks. Currently the 49ers are 8-6 in their sim and a wildcard. They release 1 full simulated game from the schedule each day on YouTube, and afaik, the niners have had 3 of those. Since its May and i'm desperate for football, i may have watched these in their entirety lol. They're also being posted by the NFL's youtube page. For anyone interested...
  5. Schefter says his contract was expriring this. However, he ended up signing a contract extension. With the new rules though, its easier to leave if the Packers (or any other team) make a serious offer next offseason. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/49ers-reward-key-offensive-assistant-mike-lafleur-with-contract-extension-per-report/
  6. Around the NFL III - The NFLiest Yet

    Besides Shanny & Lynch, the main guy i want to keep is Adam Peters. He was highly regarded coming from Denver and a key part of our FO. Shanny will lose coaches, part of being a good HC is replacing when they do leave. If we can keep maintaining our success, wouldn't be surprised to see Saleh/McDaniel/LaFleur as future head coaches. Speaking of, what tier would you guys rank Shanny in? I was tninking about it earlier today... Tier 1 - Bellichek Tier 2 - Reid, Payton, Carroll, Harbaugh, Tomlin Tier 3 - Shanny, McVay, Pederson, Reich Tier 4 - McCarthy, Rivera, LaFleur, Zimmer, Arians, Vrabel

    Wasn't the rumor that if Saleh got the CLE job, he would have taken McDaniel with him as OC? I'd like to keep as many of these guys as possible, but i feel like clock is winding down. I'm like 80% sure the reason Stefanski is in CLE and not Saleh/McDaniel is because the owners didn't want to wait to make their hire.
  8. What do you guys think our 2020 strengths/weaknesses will be? Strengths - run offense/run blocking, short-intermediate passing offense , pass rush, pass coverage from the LB's/S , kicking, punting, return coverage Weaknesses - deep passing game/pass blocking, run defense (part of the wide 9 experience), pass coverage from the DB's, return game. Reasoning for strengths: Run offense is obvious. Short-Intermediate pass offense should still lead to some big gains due to creative play-calling and YAC potential from Kittle/Samuel/Aiyuk. Pass rush may take a step back with Buckner's loss but we've still got a talented group. Hope Ford + Blair are healthier this year & Bosa is Bosa. LB's are pretty solid with pass coverage. Ward/Tartt were a great S combo last year and both are entering their primes. Gould settled down with field goals as the year went on; perhaps the LS instability in the beginning threw him off? Mitch has a year of experience, and we were pretty solid containing returners (except for the Saints game). Reasoning for weaknesses: Our pass blocking is not the best which doesn't lead to deep throws. Will we get better RG play than we did last year? Chris Jones almost single-handedly wrecked our comeback attempt in the SB. I could see a step back in the DB room with age. Sherm got beat deep multiple times in the playoffs. I also don't trust Witherspoon at all, way too streaky. Moseley looked solid. Due to age/expiring contracts, CB is projected to be one of my top needs in 2021. Our return game with James is just ok. Although i read or saw somewhere that he leads the NFL in yards per return, it still feels like we could get a few more yards each time. Projected 2021 needs: CB, RG, LT (if William's doesn't re-sign). Could also see us target depth at DE, LB, WR.
  9. Warrants issued for DeAndre Baker and Quinton Dunbar

    Logan Ryan could have 2 more teams interested in him...
  10. With almost 25% (!) of the league changing uniforms this offseason, its been a pretty popular topic. I like the new LA Chargers unis, but i love the powder blues...fave colour combo in the NFL for sure 2nd favourite...Niners 1994 throwbacks, which in of itself are a throwback to the 1950's
  11. Rams release New Uniforms

    Seems weird to me that they wouldn't just own half each, like the Giants/Jets do at MetLife.

    2014-2016 drafts did give us a few key contributors...Ward Tartt Armstead. Also had Buckner & Brown before they were traded. Carlos Hyde, Dontae Johnson, Aaron Lynch, Bradley Pinion still around the league but they're just backups at best. Borland was starting caliber until he retired one freaking year after being drafted. Pretty much everyone else he's drafted has washed out of the league. Notable whiffs from 2014-2016 include Joshua Garnett, Marcus Martin, Eli Harold, Will Redmond, Rashard Robinson. I hesitate to call a 4th rounder or lower a whiff but there wasn't even any quality depth to fill out the backend of the rosters either except for Aaron Lynch. 2012-2013 were awful though. The only starter was Eric Reid, and he was just above average at best. The only other contributors were Garrett Celek, Tony Jerod-Eddie, & Quinton Dial. Marcus Cooper was drafted in the 2013 7th round...i remember we cut him after TC. He balled out for the Chiefs for like half a season. Complete shutdown CB. Then he fell off the face of the earth. Comment took me down memory lane....we're in better hands now.

    I'm glad we didn't sign Earl Thomas last year. Play on the field wasn't worth it, he publicly called a teammate out, and now this... Ward was better, younger, and lower cost. Way better value
  14. Mahomes will surpass Brady as the Goat. True or False?

    His/Patriots accomplishments in the last 20 years are crazy. 13 AFCCG appearances, 9 AFFCG wins, 6 SB wins. Will we ever see another stretch like that again?
  15. Mahomes will surpass Brady as the Goat. True or False?

    The Chiefs have a great FO & Coaching Staff. This should allow them to draft & develop replacements for players who become too expensive. Mahomes can also cover up a lot of weaknesses too.
