    Don’t worry about it. You are well respected for your knowledge and your insight of the game of 49ERS FOOTBALL. I can tell by the response you receive from your comments you post. I’m sure we all have a pretty good idea who would give the thumbs down. Just keep writing what you will. I for one enjoy reading your posts. GO 49ERS…

    ok well goldson gets to try the waters….i think it’s a bad move for niners…pro bowl safety runs that backfield…resepected player….leader back there…he deserves a contrract….if he leaves going to miss him…than they have to get a safety…and a rookie isn’t the answer….who? reed? old…woodson? they want goldson money so goldson is young and knows defense….

    i know it’s tough to keep everyone….but they only have one guy really goldson…francois and sproguha can be let go…they need your pro bowl safety…like last year they kept everyone really….and made it to the super bowl…u loss goldson and walker u loss two big pieces of this team…whitner looked weak alot this year they can’t count on him….this is a big problem to me…

    like i said defintion of free agency is ALL UP IN THE AIR ,but i’m confident that harbaugh and company is working double time on these, i’m pretty sure they’ll get the right personels that fit in the 49er system..the waiting and guessing is also killing me here, i don’t hear any movement fr.the franchise….IN HARBAUGH WE TRUST, thats all we can do at the moment…….
