For what it's worth, my 9er friends told me he is good at everything, great at nothing.

I agree. with the new players we've signed and the new DB coach to help them improve... I'm not say'n they will all be elite anything... but, I think there will be a much improved secondary in general this season, and that will be huge!

I like it!

What the hell do you know? You have blue hair.

That would still leave us with a great upgrade over Martin.

Good, cause Martin is bad at everything.

Hey guys, 49ers fan here and I just want to clear a couple of things up.

He was only going to be our starting free safety going into the season because we hadn't re-signed Dashon Goldson yet. Once Goldson signed, it took him some time to learn Vic Fangio's new defense and once he was ready Reggie was benched. It wasn't like he was beating out Goldson for the job. He's not that good.

The guy is below average in both pass and run coverage. His only real contribution to the 49ers was the occasional tackle on defense and a few stand out tackles on special teams. He does "The Dougie" better than he plays football.

Anytime Dashon Goldson or Donte Whitner were injured I would cringe knowing that Reggie Smith would have to come in the game. And I'm not in the minority here, go check out the 49ers forums thread about him signing with you guys.

Just wanted to inform you, from someone who has had to watch this dude for the past few seasons. Don't get too excited about this guy, he'll only disappoint you.

He can't be more cringing to watch than martin..

Don't think of him as a replacement for Martin, think of him as a replacement for Pugh.

I'm sure we can all get behind that.

Good point.

If it was possible to trade a first round draft pick just for the vague idea of "Pugh won't play anymore" I would do it.

Absolutely no excuse for this guy not to beat out Martin.

Martin couldn't tackle a standing dummy and appears lost at times. Smith on the other hand appears to actually have a nose for the ball and a certain physicality to him.
