Post 49ers
Apparently on twitter an inside source is saying a shocking move is coming for a big name player on the 9ers. Lots of speculation this may infact be a major trade. Speculation around Willis either being cut or traded

Huh. I thought it was injury-related.

Willis is walking away at age 30 on his own terms, a rarity in professional sports. A source told CSN Bay Area that, "Patrick is not having fun. He doesn’t want to play football."

Quote:
49ers ILB Chris Borland has retired from the NFL after one season.

Borland, the 49ers' third-round pick last year, is calling it quits because of safety issues in the league, as he's concerned about the long-term effects of head trauma. "I just honestly want to do what's best for my health," Borland said. "From what I've researched and what I've experienced, I don't think it's worth the risk." Borland has been diagnosed with two concussions in his lifetime, but may have suffered others. He took over as a full-time starter in Week 7 as a rookie and racked up 107 tackles, two interceptions, and a sack while grading out as PFF's No. 4 inside linebacker. His and Patrick Willis' retirements put the 49ers in a severe bind at the position.

What the actual crap? The 49ers went from being stacked to being laughable faster than any team I can think of in recent memory.

Yeah, it's safe to say they are no longer too legit to quit. :P

I'm telling you, Goodell is ruining the NFL. He isn't listening to his players and their concerns. It will be interesting to see where the league is at in 5 years. This is the fifth "young" retirement this offseason.

You've hit the nail squarely on the head ... unfortunately it won't lead to a concussion for Roger Goodell.

Here's a guy who claims to card about safety, yet pushes Thursday night football, laughably claiming it is safer than Sunday football. He's the guy who wants to extend the season to 18 games, putting players at even more risk. Yes, he'll likely reach his stated goal of $25 billion in revenue, but at what cost?

I applaud these players for putting their lives ahead of their bank accounts. Hopefully it leads to Roger Goodell eventually being shown the door, although it seems doubtful the NFL would jettison its cash cow.

To put their free fall into perspective: the 49ers have lost 13 starters from the Super Bowl that was played two years ago. Obviously, this doesn't even include Alex Smith or Jim Harbaugh.

Out of every single WR, CB, and S on that roster, the only player that remains is Tramaine Brock.

At one point, it looked like they had an embarrassment of riches at RB and MLB. Now they don't know what they have...and the answer might not be a positive one for that fan base.

This is a team that one year ago had been to three straight NFC Championship games. Now they are in complete disarray, play in the same division as the team that has represented the NFC in two straight Super Bowls, and aren't even the favorite to finish second in their division. It's crazy to think how quickly the league changes.

Justin Smith retries, as well...

That's what six or seven starters that left due to retirement, or Free Agency..

All this, and i still find the 49ers to be far more talented and capable then they showed last year, I think they could maybe sneak into that last playoff spot next year.

I don't think that at all. I view the 49ers as one of the few "locks" on our schedule.

I whole heartedly disagree, and i think the Niners might just surprise you guys week one, time will tell though.

Im a little unclear on what your asking me, where do I think they have improved from last year? Or where do I think they are more talented than the Vikings?

I'm trying to think what position I would take the 9ers player over the Vikings player. Probably some spots on the O-line. I don't know their roster well enough I guess, but most of the names I was familiar with are no longer on the team.

Sorry, that post was unclear. Long weekend.

Which positions on the 49ers do you think have improved since last year?

They lost two starting LB including an all pro
There starting Pro Bowl level LG (I think)
Starting DT and lost one more DT last season for criminal offenses
One Wide Out at least
Frank Gore
Two secondary players

Coaching staff changes and the tuffest division in Football

They will be lucky to win five games next season...

He's also said he thinks our team can compete for the division. I don't think this prediction is a bias against the Vikings, he just thinks the 49ers will be better.

I disagree with that for many of the reasons jackal brought up, but I don't think his opinion should be devalued just because he's a Packers fan.

I have to admit to you, your point is well taken, i dont think i truly understood exactly how much they lost until Jackal so graciuosly pointed out above many of their key losses. I havent been following their offseason as well as i apparently thought i was.

Now that said, i still do believe the Niners to have severely under acheived last year, and I think that Kap is a million times better then he played, there O line is still solid and i think that Reggie Bush is a very interesting fit for them. But most of it comes down to Kap and the fact that I think he really has the capabalility to be a franchise player.

This is what I find the most telling about the 49ers: two and a half years ago when they went to the Super Bowl, they had 15 CBs/WRs on the roster. Out of those players, Tramaine Brock is the only one remaining. Out of their 11 defensive starters, 3 remain. Out of the offensive players who touched the ball, Kaep and Vernon Davis are the only ones still on the roster. The young head coach who brought them back from a decade of mediocrity is gone.

Now, I'm not going to say they haven't replaced any of those starters with good players, but the entire identity of that team is gone. 8 players are all that remain. And honestly, how much can you rely on Aldon Smith and Navorro Bowman at this point?

I'm not a 49er hater by any means, but until they show me otherwise, I don't see any reason to fear this team.

They lost Crabtree, but picked up Torrey Smith.

More importantly, though, they got this guy:

It just looks like a train wreck at this point; players retiring and because they don't enjoy the game, anymore...(willis)

One of the most successful HC in the last five years pushed out, and media stories leaked out constantly about the
was within the organization.

The new coach does not seem like he can even speak at a one on one press conference..

I honestly think they come up last in the division next year... maybe the Ram's
