Didn't the 49ers go crazy before 1994

Duh. I wonder how many other folks will say the same thing??? It is all the same really. I consider picking up Olsen as a free agent pickup but it was technically a trade. I guess it is the offseason and people here are bored with no signings to speak of for the Panthers.

Honestly I would have preferred to pick him up as a free agent so we didn't give up the 3rd rounder(impossible I know as he was under contract).

I am just sick of people crying about us not having the money to overpay other teams free agents. Gettleman has a plan I am sure, otherwise why cut Anderson as a June 1st designation instead of taking the hit all at once? Even if we had the money I am not sure I could condone the contracts being signed right now.

We are clearing room to add vets that make sense once the initial desperation high price signing's end.

duh, i didn't see it.

FA pick up is not a trade.

the question is for those who are bitching about us not being active so far and supposedly "missing out" on the frenzy of activity early on when it's rare that the result of being big players in that opening frenzy is rarely the team turning into a monster. it's usually moderate improvements, but not much more than you'd get if you waited a little while.

I would also add Woodson and Sharpe going to the Ravens just before they won the SB in 2000.

But in general I agree with you. Doing what the Dolphins are doing generally doesn't really work.

If we signed just one bona fide starter from free agency, would you consider that "splurging"?

Why give an answer in a crap thread to someone who doesn't even know what the words splurge and splash mean and the difference between the two?

The 49ers and Ravens both had numerous quality free agent pickups on their roster last season.

We need to know what you are going for here because you are intentionally leaving it ambiguous. Because we could say to counter has there ever been a successful team that hasn't had a single free agent on it. We need to know the limits.
