I am more excited about the moves we have made this offseason than I have been in quite some time. Methodically, they're putting together a contender.

Can't wait for the draft.

I'm excited more than anything that they know there is a problem at S and are bringing in multiple players to try to mitigate the problem and create a choice there.

I feel more secure about our offseason so far this year than I have in a while because, despite the fact that I don't have a huge name to tout about when I brag to my friends, I feel like we are approaching the process intelligently.

Remains to be seen what we do in the draft but I'm not sure we could have done that much better with the cap space we had this year and still been able to draft.

Every one of these signings feels like just that -methodical. Seems like the FO is signing players who are in the same boat as the whole team -ready to blowup... Almost everybody can see it, this team is fixin to take over. Our O was top 10, dont see that slippin much. Addressin D & ST to get them to top 10 status, its going to be a lot of fun watchin this season. I thought 05 & 08 felt special before the season, this is insane...Spent alot of time fuggin, now its time for the money shot...

Love it. Safety is definitely going to be the position battle royale at camp this year.

Rivera said last year that he would eventually like to see Martin at CB....I think he even said it might not be immediate but that was what he wanted in time.

I do not have a link or quote

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.

Martin was fine in 2010. Everyone outside Gamble was abused in the back 7 last year.

No he wasn't. He sucked in 2010 too. The Godfrey hate just made it seem like he didn't. He was out of position all the time. Everything just got blamed on the CB but after the play the would always look to Martin like "where the f*** were you?"

We're just upgrading our STs right now, but this board is primed to get excited about any news.
