looks like the 49ers signed brian westbrook. 1 year deal. most likely in response to coffee retiring. should be decent if he can stay healthy, i wouldnt worry about him starting over gore, but it does raise concerns for gores fantasy value. maybe we will see more 2 back sets in the 49ers backfield.

It is not that rare, but the default is still mainly to be a RAIDERS fan....but I WHOLE HEARTEDLY HATE THE FUCKEN RAIDERS.

Seriously, when i was about 13 years old my cousin took me to some Raider games at the L.A Coliseum when they where still in L.A.

It was the most "Ghetto'est" experience of my life. Fights everywhere. Raider fans vandalizing, starting small fires, trying to steal stadium speakers. W.T.F.

Once they left, with never really adopting a NFL team of my own to begin with, i followed the 49ers and Chargers. Saw the Steve Young era go against the cowboys and packers, cheered for another Cali team to win. Sadly the 49ers have now been dormant for like the past decade.

Now Chargers have been making noise, once again another Cali team that i root for.

Bandwagon fan you say? No. My allegiance will always be to the City of Los Angeles. (born and raised). Until we have our own Football team, i am not 100% devoted to any NFL franchise.


As long as that L.A team is not the Raiders again, LMAO.:twoguns:

Eli Manning got messed up!

My read was that Holt wasn't likely to make the team anyway.


Maybe not. I still wish he could contribute to the team. They love his presence.

They want to keep Gore healthy and fresh. Makes sense, why tire one of the Top 5 RB's in the league?

Nonetheless, we aren't going anywhere with Smith as QB.

Denver did as well as I could've expected, which was to see the starters do well while the backups flounder since there is very little quality depth on the team. I hope the injuries are few and far between without anything severe or else they'll fall fast.

It sucks that Dave Zastudil is out for the season, as Reggie Hodges now has the punter job for the Browns and he's not that good.

A couple things to remember: Gore's usage was expected to drop this season - obvious reason is his injuries the past two years portend a bleak future if it continues - with Dixon getting opportunities (thought to take some playtime from Coffee anyway) and even more goalline love to Vernon. Picking up Westbrook makes a lot sense if Gore gets hurt again, this year, and misses 3 to 4 games. Westbrook still has it if he's healthy - something he's been only a few games the past two years.

Also, what makes you think Smith is starting QB? They didn't sign Carr to be a back-up and if he outplays Smith like he did during the Colts game, Smith is back on that bench.

Just like Westbrook, Carr was signed as a backup and would not compete for the starting job. Of course if shit happens he can become the started down the road but right now there is no battle for the starting QB position.

Smith might take us to the playoffs but no way we win a championship with him.

And while we are on Niner's QBs, OC Jimmy Raye said that he wants to put in Nate Davis earlier in the next two games to get a better feel of what he has to offer.

Look at the bright side of this situation: If there's an NFL lockout next season, there's no way Favre can come back the following season :) I think this move makes the Vikings 2 games better, but the Packers still win the division. However I wonder how that ankle really is.

I've seen nowhere Singletary guaranteeing Smith has the starting job. Comfortable with him starting? Yes. Guaranteed he's got it? Nope. They signed Carr (2 years, 4 mil guaranteed) to compete for position not play back-up. You don't sign a 30 year old QB that has overall better stats than Smith (that's counting with the Texans for their first five years), and not give him a shot - forget what Yahoo! says. Not only that, Raye (I seriously can't understand how he keeps getting OC jobs) likes the deep ball and Carr can throw the deep ball, Smith can't.

Well, I as well thought Alex Smith was going to be starting QB, after having a solid second half last year and getting the starting spot back from Shaun Hill.

I just hope Vernon Davis has another all star season and last year wasn't a fluke. He can only get better! And what about Crabtree? any news of improvement during the pre-season? Seriously, the Niners have very solid pieces, and now with a 2 punch combo of Gore and Westbrook. :D

The NFC West is there for the taking!

Edit: And i just remembered they drafted USC Safety (FIGHT ON!) Taylor Mays!!!

You must not be keeping up with the team since all offseason Sing has been saying Smith will start. Like I said before Smith could mess up and be replaced, which really applies to everyone on any team, but as of right now there is no open competition for the starting qb.

Here's to hoping Davis and Iupati fill in the gaps on the O-line.

In other news:

How many friggin headache related incidents does Harvin need before somebody sits down and says something is seriously wrong here?

I have been keeping up. The problem is you're taking one quote from Singletary saying he's comfortable with Smith starting in March as a guarantee now - it ain't. Especially for a 1st rounder that got it back in mid '09 after losing it in '07. If you're adamant that Smith has the starting job, then link me a recent quote of Singletary or Raye stating it since preseason.

There is no quote since preseason since it's not an open qb competition. Why would he make a statement about something that's not in question. As of right now Smith will start week one.

Its still a little early but I think the Patriots finally came through with a good draft class. Still might not be enough to fill all their holes though.
