  1. Adrian Colbert Placed on IR

    He loves dropping Earl Mitchell into coverage, maybe Saleh moves him to his more natural position of FS? Seems like a Saleh-type move.
  2. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Not surprising in the least bit. He has proven everything that he needs to that he's a top talent in the draft. Playing the rest of this season is not going to elevate his stock anymore. If anything, this will just lead to some uncomfortable questions during the interview process. While it leaves a bad taste in peoples' mouths when a college player quits on his team to focus on his future, it's something that is just a progression of the process that is preparing for the NFL.
  3. No doubt, but I'd rather see our #1 corner matched up on their #1 WR. I'd take my chances on Valdes-Scantling against Mabin, rather than Adams against Mabin. I know that Valdes-Scantling had a pretty good game last night and Mabin did not. But if it's the final drive and I see Mabin getting beat up by Adams, I'm telling Sherman that he's on him until the game is over. I don't think Sherman would have an issue playing on the other side of the field to try and protect a win.
  4. That makes sense when you have elite corners. When you don't, that sounds like a field day for opposing offenses. It's like playing with one arm tied behind your back. If you put your 6th corner on the field and refuse to move him, then it only makes sense for the Packers to put their #1 on that side and let him feast.
  5. Some thoughts of last night: This game went exactly how I wanted it to go - a competitive loss. Mostert deserves more rushing attempts. He was finding space, hitting the hole with authority, and has the speed to break a big gain. I don't think he's the future or anything, but man he is a super valuable third back. I'm over Saleh. I don't understand how you have largely the same personnel as last year but severely regress. It was annoying to see Thomas make plays in the backfield, then immediately go to the sideline for the next 3-5 plays. Why is Greg Mabin covering the #1 receiver on the final drive??? Why are our defenders never in a position to make an impact play? It feels like Saleh tries to outsmart the opposing offense, but in the end, he just outsmarts himself. He doesn't use his personnel well. Beathard looked really good last night and that makes me happy. Beathard gets a lot of hate, but I was very happy to see him play well last night despite the game losing interception. Greg Mabin is not as bad as last night looked. Let's start off with the fact that he was responsible for covering Davante Adams on the final drive of the game. He barely played in the game prior to that drive. Saleh never adjusted after seeing him repeatedly get beat. Prior to this game, Mabin had one of the highest pass coverage grades for our DB's. Richie James looked really good returning kicks, I wish we would've got to see him on some quick slants and screens. He looks like he knows what to do with the ball in his hands.

    Which would be fine with me, but who is after him and Tomlinson? We have no depth and no future (with the exception of McGlinchey) at any position on the line. I'm not advocating for paying out an Andrew Norwell contract or to draft Jonah Williams, but I would really like to see the Niners double dip in the draft at OG in the middle rounds.
  7. 2019 Free Agency Thread

    The Oline maybe be serviceable now, but would you re-sign any of our guards to a long-term deal? We don't even have young guys waiting in the wings to take over. I don't think signing an OG to a huge deal is necessary, but we really need to draft some talent on the interior for the future.
  8. Solomon Thomas - Finally Signs Rookie Contract

    I whole-heartedly feel that Saleh thinks he needs exotic looks to make his defense work. Yes, we do not have an outside pass rush, but how in the hell can you not line up Thomas, Armstead, and Bucker and have them rush the interior consistently? Saleh is too busy trying to figure out to drop Earl Mitchell into coverage more often
  9. 2019 Free Agency Thread

    I'll admit, I haven't been as invested in diving deep into the film the past few weeks, but during the Vikings game, guys were open all over the place, they either dropped it or sack happened. Shanahan knows how to scheme guys open, so paying big for a top-end WR doesn't seem like the best investment. I want to see the Niners get a good, competent 3rd RB, a pass-catching #2 TE, and about 4-6 new offensive linemen. On defense, I'd invest quite a bit in a top-end pass rusher, then double down and draft one late and/or sign depth pass rusher. I'd get another outside corner, another pass-covering LB, and maybe a single-high safety to push Colbert. After all of that, if there is a WR that fell in our lap in the draft or a special circumstance happened in FA to free up a premium WR, I'd consider signing/drafting that guy.

    I don't know that I necessarily agree with this. We're playing without McKinnon, which really hurts the creativity of the offense. We also didn't get to see Jimmy G get into a rhythm with his offense yet. We saw a ton of dropped passes and almost big plays in his small sample size this year. As fun as it would be to have a shiny new toy on offense, I think our money and picks are best spent on the offensive line, pass rushing, and pass coverage.
  11. Solomon Thomas - Finally Signs Rookie Contract

    At this point, it just feels like Saleh doesn't know how to use his pieces well. We all know Thomas is a better inside rusher, yet he doesn't even get on the field on 3rd downs. It's not like we have a group of talented pass rushers blocking him! Our defense has taken a pretty drastic step backward so far this year and with largely the same players, this feels like it's on the coaches.
  12. New Forum - New Random

    Last night while playing Madden 19, I decided I wanted to do a sim franchise with the Browns as a secondary franchise to my Niners' franchise. Well, stupid auto save saved over my year 3 Niners' franchise and I didn't even realize it I went to play it later in the night and it was gone. Now I have to start all over! #FirstWorldProblems

    Even if we didn't sign any of our soon-to-be free agents (with the exception of Robbie Gould), they're all easily replaceable. I too think we will retain a few of these guys, but none of them are going to break the bank nor prevent the Niners from finding capable upgrades for competition. Luckily, this lost season isn't going to hurt the future too much because it's not like we have key players that we can't retain at the end of the season. All of our prime talent is young and locked up for the next couple of years.
  14. 2019 Free Agency Thread

    I was actually just thinking about this. With the lack of high-profile free agents set to hit the market next year, our large amount of cap space, and premium picks (presumably), we're setting ourselves up for an offseason full of additions and very little subtractions. This season is going to suck balls to get through, but we're going to have some really nice assets to acquire premium talent.
  15. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Their mocks are usually against the grain. I remember they had Mo Hurst in the top 5 leading up to the draft. There weren't any draft people even remotely close to agreeing with that. If Oliver tests as well as most think he will, he will be a top 5 lock.
