    Neither of those guys have anywhere near the talent that Gaither had, but at least they'll be on the field come game day.
    They could alternatively slot Fluker in at guard where he could be great, play Dunlap at RT and Starks at LT. Pretty beefy unit there.

    My guess is they'll let Gilbert and Adam compete for the LT position. Gilbert seems more of a heavy-footed linemen, so not sure how he'd work at OT in general...let alone LT.

    If last season was any indication, Mike Adams at LT is going to be an issue for the Steelers all year long. He looked bad last year. Really bad.
    Adams was pretty good as a run blocker from RT, but he REALLY struggled in pass pro, like really really struggled. If he wasn't as long as he is, he'd probably make a good guard, but RT seems like the only position for him. They probably have no choice but to go with Gilbert at LT.

    That is probably what I would do, or at least consider if I were one of the Charger's offensive coaches.

    Urlacher is a slam dunk HOFer.

    I think he and Ray are first ballot guys.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Apparently Michael Crabtree tore his achilles yesterday.

    That sucks

    RT @RapSheet: #49ers WR Michael Crabtree suffered a torn Achilles yesterday, source says. Brutal. Could return this year
    Looks like Boldin will be playing a much bigger part than I thought this year.

    I wonder if its Partial like Suggs was last year or a complete tear. If its completely Torn say good bye for the season.

    Thanks. Wow, that does suck.. Sorry for Crabtree, hope he recovers soon.

    However, it dings SF's SB chances a little and I'm okay with that.

    the curse of the Achilles tear has spread. Hopefully it has moved on from Baltimore into SF for good.

    We suffered that last year.

    Dang. I was gonna draft Crabtree this year in fantasy...

    Let's see if the 49ers can handle injury like the Ravens did last year.

    So niners have

    VD
    A.J. Jenkins
    Boldin
    Mario Manningham
    Quiton Patton and Vance MacDonald

    VD, Manningham and Boldin are the proven commodities and it looks like A.J. Jenkins really needs to prove his worth.

    I wonder how it will feel to go into the HOF as one of the all time best at your position, and also be upstaged by the best going in with you.... sweet but bittersweet at the same time?
