    2nd hand info but SF might have interest in Brian Westbrook
    http://twitter.com/Russellmania09/statuses/21320676462

    Always been a fan of Westbrook and it would bring a different style of back to the 3 SF has on the roster.
    This would be a great add. I would like the different look that he would give and Raye could have some fun with 2 HB sets.

      Throw out some quick thoughts:
      - Looking for more from Alex but one game. Thought he looked more comfortable in 5/7 step drops and liked the confidence in the throw to Walker but got to translate to postive results.
      - Sing better start Dixon for the rest of the preseason over M-Rob. What a debut. As the announcers were saying he runs like a bull. Stiff arm was nasty.
      - Need to get another running back in camp though to save those guys legs.
      - It seemed like D.Briggs and Bruce Davis spent the whole time in Indy's backfield. They had consistant pressure the whole game.
      -Hope K.Williams injury is just a minor setback but his ability during KR/PR shows he can be a gamechanger out there.
      -Risky by Sing to leave the starting line in there for a whole half. But more surprised he kept Iupati and Davis deep into the 3rd. Really trying to excel their learning process. Could payoff big.
      -Mays is the "The Flash" out there. Still had coverage issues but it is going to be scary once he gets the playbook done. Don't think we will see so many screens go for big gains with him out there.
      -Nate Davis looked good. Hoping he gets some run with the twos in one of these games.
      -Not worried about Smith just yet. It's only pre-season. Have to wait and see how he plays when the games count.
      -I didnt see any highlights of Dixon but 21 carries for 100 yards and a TD is pretty impressive. If he can play like that in the regular season, everyone will forget that we ever drafted Coffee.
      -I'm actually hoping Briggs and Davis make the roster or practice squad over Laboy. For $2.5m, Laboy was a waste of a signing. That money could have been put towards re-signing Lawson instead.
      -I still think Williams will make the roster over Jones. :)
      - Good and bad idea leaving the starting OL out there that long. Good for the experience and chemistry but bad if someone gets injured.
      -I'm really hoping Mays wins the starting SS job over Lewis. I have liked Lewis since he was with Philly but his age, salary and injury history means its time to move on.
      -I hope Davis continues to progress because if Smith fails, Davis would be the guy I would start in 2011.

      Summed up Rachal career perfectly right there. I don't want to see him benched through one game but curious what Sing's course of action is if he is struggling by game 3. Do you go with Wragge or Synder over him or when Heitmann gets back slid Baas over to RG? It will be intriguing spot to watch in the next few weeks.
      Personally, I would sign Mawae for depth at center and trade Rachal. The only reason why he's starting is because of injuries to Heitmann and Baas and personally, as much as I want to see him win the starting RG spot and become good, I have a feeling that its not going to happen. If he doesnt improve within the next three games to where Sing and company have confidence in him, I would trade him too because without a salary cap, now is the best time to eliminate dead weight.

      No terms of deal yet. Scotty Mac must have made the push to Seattle's management. It was nice to get anything in return for Balmer.

      Happy to see Balmer gone. Guy was crap but im hoping that since he was a first rounder and only in his third season that we at least got a 4th rounder for him. I get the feeling that it's a seventh rounder. Oh well, at least his contract is off the books and opens up a roster spot for someone else.

      And I would love to see Westbrook here in SF. He'll be more valuable than Robinson and a good change of pace back and another weapon out of the backfield on screens and stuff. Signing him would allow Sing to limit Gore's and Dixon's carries while keeping Robinson just for special teams.

          I would pass on Mawae. Would rather see Baas or Wragge get PT there. As disappointing as Chilo has been I wouldn't think of moving him yet. Also doubt SF would think of that since Rachal has been Sing's pet project since he has taken over as coach.

            Well, I would only sign Mawae if I was to trade Rachal. Adding a veteran like Mawae next to Iupati would be good. Sing has to stop with his "pet projects" because no matter how hard he tries, its not going to do a damn thing if the player doesnt try or care. If he continues to suck in the next three pre-season games and second/third string defenses are kicking his ass, I would just trade him like they did Balmer because there's no point in using two first round draft picks on Iupati and Davis when all the defensive players are going right past/over Rachal to get to Smith.

            A sixth round draft pick for a former first round draft pick. So sad. And thanks for the highlights of Dixon.

            • Just watched the highlights of Dixon. Pretty impressive. Loved the stiff arm on the TD run but the double juke in the backfield to get away from two defenders and three tackles for a good gain was very very impressive. Vision, reaction and burst all on the same play. And he seems pretty fast too. The only negative is that I saw him limping a few times. We definitely should sign Westbrook or someone to limit Dixon because as of right now, he's looking like the backup to Gore.

                Wow I'm surprised we got anything at all. I'm happy with that deal.

                    He's our best corner and had a good season last year. He's most likely not going anywhere.

                      Uh no. According to ninercaphell.com, Spencer is signed through 2012.

                        Right, that would have been a surprise to me seeing as how the only free agents we've been talking about all offseason and their future with the team were Manny Lawson, Dashon Goldson, and Vernon Davis.

                        • Westbrook to sign with SF?
                          http://fantasyfootballbreakdown.com/story.asp?sid=10967
                          This was off their twitter 3 hours ago
                          Reports: Brian Westbrook is poised to sign a deal with the #49ers, according to a league source.
                          Timing of today would make sense since Coffee officially filed his retirement papers, opening up a roster spot, 49ers pushed back Coach Sing press conference to 2:30 and none of the beat writers have denied it in that time span.

                          But never heard of the site and it just popped up when I was searching through #49ers on twitter and the link to a Matt Barrows article is broken.

                            That would be awesome if true.

                            • If anyone is gonna start over Lewis, it's gonna be Reggie. Rachal blows, it's his third year an no improvement....for a freaking GUARD. Putting Baas at RG when Heitmann returns might be the move to make. Staley, Iupati, Heit, Baas, Davis are really our best linemen, put them out there on the same field.

                              Awesome if we sign Westbrook, there's the speed/quick back we've been wanting. He probably won't be too productive anymore, but teams will have to account for him and his speed.

                              • Woohoo!!! Team officially signed Westbrook and he's already on the team's roster page. :)

                                Balmer actually bought his way out of SF for $80,000 which is crappy considering the team could have gotten about $1m back in bonus money. Granted, we get a 6th rounder but I rather have the extra million. Oh well, either way, im happy he's gone.

                                And best of all, I get to add Westbrook to the 49ers roster in 2K11 (aka 2K5). What an awesome day. I'm so happy. :)
