Why can't we have our pie and eat it too? Draft Luck and trade up to get Newton. Then we run some badass double wildcat formation.

Oh yeah, the 49ers can eat poo. I still remember hating them back in the old NFC West days.

Chargers - Giants kind of set the standard when Eli came out. Add another draft pick or two based on their draft position this year.

OL excuse is weak unless you want some new starters and not depth.

Like I say in every thread where someone mentions A.J. Green...if we select him, you must also be comfortable with trading Smitty or getting rid of AE.

The alternatives just isn't good enough for us to rationally NOT pick Luck or Newton

So yesterday, I was listening to the local crappy sports programming on the radio in the car as my wife was getting something to eat on 99.9 The Fan in the RDU area... Anyway, these two guys that host the afternoon show Joe Ovius and some other guy that know nothing about football have Mick Mixon on as a guest pretty frequently.

Well, they asked him what did he think being that we wrapped up the #1 pick and should we address the QB situation.

Of course, he offered the disqualifier that "from the press box" in his mind, how could we not look at the QB situation with that first pick? He pretty much said everything he could to suggest QB is a problem area without letting go of the company line.

He went on to say that if we pass up on Luck if he declares, and another team gets him and he goes onto be the next Peyton Manning, then people lose their jobs over stuff like that. But, if we take him and he's a miss, then it sets your franchise back for 3 or 4 more years, IIRC.

But, then he threw in this interesting nugget - he said he knows some people out on the west coast with some "insider" info on Luck, and said that he really thinks he's gonna be the next big one at QB. He said his guys out there told him that Luck has pretty much changed the Stanford offense as the season has progressed. He said he heard that Luck calls many of his own plays on the field, and has actually created variations of existing plays because he's so intelligent/aware on the field and because his skill set has opened up plays further that they already had, or something like that. He also said that Harbaugh's offensive system is pretty extensive and that Luck has obviously mastered that from the stuff I just mentioned.

It was one of the few times I've ever heard Mixon speak and gotten something out of it, so I just thought I'd share, lol.

What about Bradford and Freeman?

Brafford has a coach that does nothing but goes over plays with him after every series and Im not talking the QB coach. Brafford also isnt using the whole playbook no rookie QB does. Clausen is running alot of plays and I think that is one reason he struggle. If we did get Luck I expect the new Head Coach to run a small playbook for him. It will be 2 years before he will be ready to run the team like Manning or Brady.

We will rely alot on the running game and defense the first season.

Plain and simple with a elite QB you have a chance in everygame. Your oline can be bad (A Rodgers) you can have no running game (T Brady) or a bad Def. (P manning). You still have a chance too win.

With a game mang. everything has too be going right good def. great running game. Special teams plays made. People we are in a division where every other team looks like they have a star QB but us.

Adam Gold (the other guy you were referring to) is one of the dumbest f**ckers on the radio.. I've never heard a radio personality get tripped up by fans more than this guy.. I guess it doesn't help that he has no fuging clue as to what he's talking about 90% of the time.

Good insight. Thanks for the post. Sounds interesting, as I read things, or as the board discusses, I really do think Harbaugh and Luck will be a package deal this time, maybe not forever, but for the forseeable future, nothing like making a rookie comfortable than bringing his HC and the offense he runs to the next level.
