Haralson should be rotated out with Brooks, LaBoy, and Briggs (if Brooks doesn't take the starting job when he comes back)
    Yes, I should have clarified. Lawson should be in on normal downs and Parys should be rotated with Brooks, LaBoy and Briggs. They can also rotate with Lawson is strict pass rushing situations, like a two minute drive when the other team is down by 4+. Manny is the best all around player and athlete, making him good for both the run and pass, so long as he can maintain stamina.

    • I'm looking at how good Earl Thomas, Morgan Burnett, and Nate Allen are looking and I can't help but feel frustrated. We need someone to replace Lewis ASAP. bleh.

      • Michael Lewis saved himself from being cut but this will undoubtedly be his last year with the 49ers.

        Maiocco reported that Lewis' scheduled $4.1 million salary was slashed to $1.7 million, plus a $400,000 bonus. Additionally, the final two years were eliminated from his contract. That means Lewis will be scheduled to hit the free-agent market at the end of the season. Lewis declined a request to comment on his new contract, a team spokesman said.

          I believe his name is either Reggie Smith or Taylor Mays.

            WOW!!! Didnt see this coming but smart move by the 49ers. Just one question, Lewis signed a 5 year deal back in 2007 so technically, didnt they just eliminate the last year of his contract which would have been 2011 while re-doing 2010? Thats what it seems like to me.

            Anyway, its looking more and more likely that Mays and Smith will be our starting safeties in 2011. Lewis will be gone and I dont see the team keeping Lawson or Goldson. I dont agree with not re-signing Lawson and Goldson but whatever. Sadly, there's nothing I can do about it.

            I can definitely say that im concerned about our secondary in 2011. Lewis will be gone. Goldson will most likely be allowed to leave as an UFA and Clements will most likely be released. That's three good quality starters in the secondary that could be gone in six months. Draft wise, first round better be on a CB.

            On the bright side, it looks like Binary can be happy in a year from now since it looks like the starting FS spot will be Smith's to lose.

              Mays. I think Smith will be replacing Goldson at FS in 2011 since I dont see them re-signing him. And I definitely see Taylor making the final 53.

              • I could see them franchising Goldson next year if he has another great season. His price tag would be less than Alex Smith's or Franklyn's would be for their positions and would provide another year for the other young safeties behind Goldson to develop.

                  Actually, I cant see that because the team would put Franklin ahead of Goldson. While the franchise tag would be cheaper to use on Goldson than it would be on Franklin, the difference is that Goldson is in his prime where as Franklin isnt. I would much rather see Goldson extended/re-signed and Franklin tagged instead of the other way around.

                  And what's going on with V.D.??? Wasnt he supposed to be extended by now??? I'm definitely worried because I was hoping that Davis, Goldson and Lawson would be extended before the regular season starts so the franchise tag would be available for Franklin and that our only major UFA would be Smith if he plays good enough to be worth re-signing. After him, its backups like Hill and McDonald.

                  • I believe VD will be extended early during the season, before the bye.

                    Yes, Franklyn would have more value/priority over Goldson to be franchised, but I just don't see it happening at this point. How he plays this season will tell all but he definitely would NOT like be franchised again for the second year in a row.

                    • I really hope we do resign Lawson, he is actually my favorite current 49er.

                      • I believe resigning Lawson over Goldson (if they had to choose between the two) would be a good decision at this point based on depth at the position and how hard it is to get athletic OLBs that can play the run and the pass well. Lawson needs to help his case and get double digit sacks this year.

                        • On another note, I don't believe Jason Hill is going to make the team as the Niners last WR over Zeigler. I think they should shop him for a mid to late round selection before they just cut him. It's time to call up a team like the Redskins (who have a disappointing WR core) and offer them Hill for a pick or two.

                          • Crabtree and Davis exchange words on the field:
                            http://blogs.sacbee.com/49ers/archiv...words-bet.html
                            Sing said it wasn't football related so wonder what it was? Nevermind looks like it was over Crabtree sitting out last few practices and games:
                            Off Maiocco's twitter:
                            so what do you think the "elephant" was? > Crabtree's attitude and perceived apathy toward training camp and exhibition season.
                            In other Vernon Davis news he is dating one of the chicks that used to be on the "Bad Girls Club" Natalie Nunn
                            http://blacksportsonline.com/home/in...-natalie-nunn/
                            Like the scouting report on her from Black Sports Online:
                            Now for you who aren’t familiar with Natalie Nunn, think of Kat Stacks with a longer chin and a better credit score and the readers who are familiar with the Bad Girls Club can validate that comparison.
                            Sounds like Vernon's got a winner. /drops him in my fantasy rankings.

                              Oh man. Watch yo back Vernon. This is the same girl that claims to have had sex with Chris Brown (real winner) and when he denied it she said that he'd better admit it or she was going to give the naked pics and vids she had of him to the media.

                              Yeah, real winner Vernon.

                                I sure as hell hope so.

                                I think that there's a chance Franklin could get franchised again because if Davis, Lawson and Goldson are extended, the only other player that the tag might be used on would be Smith but he would have to do awesome for that to happen and at best, if Smith returns, I think that he'll be re-signed before the deadline so the tag can be used on Franklin. Tagging Franklin would make a lot more sense compared to giving him a long term deal. At least to me anyway.

                                As much as im a Lawson fan, I have Goldson ahead of him because losing Lawson wouldnt hurt as much as losing Goldson especially when you add in Lewis and possibly Clements. If that was to happen, you're talking about THREE starters in the secondary compared to ONE starter in the LB core and considering we have Haralson, Brooks, Laboy, Briggs and even Davis, the depth is better at OLB than it would be at safety and the secondary in general.

                                For some strange reason, I dont see the 49ers trading or releasing Hill because with Crabtree, Morgan and Davis, Hill should have a lot more chances to show what he can do and there's almost no pressure on him because defenses will be focused on the other three. Not only that but if an injury occurs, I dont feel comfortable with Ginn or Williams at all at WR but thats just me.

                                Add C Cody Wallace as a trade possibility to the Jaguars who I think only have one center on their active roster. I wouldnt be surprised if this actually happens.
