    I’m old school. I hate to see the Niners leave Candlestick after all these years. But then again, I remember the days they played at Kezar Stadium in Golden Gate Park. Progress id pregreess, I guess; and the new stadium is a lot closer to my home.

    Yes, the new stadium will be state of the art, and truly great….one the 49ers and their fans can use for many years.

    I want to say how it saddens me that Akers was let go. I know, I know, this past year he wasn’t up to snuff….but the guy had medical problems that plagued him, and a kicker can’t do his best, when his kicker is off-whack. His record was truly astonishing…well done David Akers….All best to you in any future endeavors you may have.

    If Akers can finally heal completely during the off-season…I wonder if he can once again be the kicker he was.???? 49ers might be sorry they let him go.

    akers is gone….they need to sign goldson and get revis or asomugha…go into draft and get d-line guy and a pas rusher…than get a 2nd tier wr in free agency…a guy who has a chip on his shoulder who can be a diamond in the rough…this team needs a 2nd wr..manningham is going to come back but it usually takes 2 years for a wr to get back to speed….like to see them draft a rb like lattimore…give him a year under gore…he could be a ricky waters type back…

    if they don’t sign goldson look at lashon landry jet safety…hard hitting good safety..to me it doesn’t look like they will sign a free agent dt…probably try to keep francois…like williams from n.c….also rhodes cb fla. st….tall and fast…future shut down cb…rogers is 32 this year and they need depth at cb..

    Think the 49ers will get Superbowl L barring a construction setback. The city of Miami still hasn’t gotten full approval from city voters for $400 million in rennovations. If Miami can get those rennovations ready, they are set for Superbowl LI

    I would have to say the new Stadium is moving along smoothly so far. Being in Santa Clara leaves me out of attending any future games. I had free tickets to 3 games this year and did not go so it is not a big worry. It is over 100 miles for me
    to make the trip. There are plenty of weathly people in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties to make up the difference.

    The guys above are right we need a corner back or 2 and to sign Goldson, he is
    an important part of our team. Rivas would be a nice addition, but we cannot pay too much for him, we are going to have a lot of guys to pay.
