How did it get this bad?

People always point to the 2010 "tanking". If we had stuck to our guns with that we would be in great shape right now. I get the Johnson signing (athough still rediculously high) but the Williams, Godfrey, and following year Stewart contracts are killing us. Would we really be that much worse off with neither Stewart of Williams and a better OL situation instead?

I am drawn to the 2008 draft when we traded up for Otah after selecting a second 1st round running back. The next year we traded up for Brown and the next year we traded a pick to get Edwards. That was just terrible pick management even without getting into the viability of the picks.

This is when I started screaming for Hurney's head. People told me to calm down, people said I had no idea what I was talking about, people said it was Fox, they said it was JR.

These same idiots posted the stupid pic of Hurney with the glasses coming down saying "deal with it".

God he was a terrible GM. Never, ever had a goal, or path, seemed he just went with what felt right, and this is where we are.

Just 3 years ago the 49ers were 27th in total offense and 18th in total defense. They finished 8-8 and were middle of the road at best. They had some key players in place but needed time to become the team they are today.

This doesnt happen overnight. It sucks to not be able to make moves in FA but we are keeping our core and building. Like that 09' 49er team we have key players in place (Cam, Luke, CJ, Olsen, Beason, etc) and we just need time to add a few more key roles to have an explosive team.

Patience young grasshopper.

Am I complaining ? Yes. Why aren't you? You know we won't do poo this year. And they have you blindfolded. We bring knifes to gun fights.

Anyone who has been around for a few years knows I was one of the biggest critics of Richardson in 2010. But for now it is too early. If we haven't picked up anyone before the draft and don't fill our holes through the draft then I will have a whole lot more to say. But honestly, there is no one that has gotten picked up who I would have targeted given our cap issues. We won't be outbidding teams for players and won't be overpaying. There are literally 100s of players available right now and there will be hundreds more once cuts start happening.

I prefer to bring a bazooka to a gun fight but I don't rush in prematurely or just go off half-cocked.

We would have been alright if Hurney would have gone with Fox. It was JR loyalty to him that set us back 5 years.

If we are going to reminisce about all the bad things we have done over the year, I vote for bitching about drafting Rae Carruth in the first round and giving up 2 firsts for Sean Gilbert. How many years are we going to keep bitching about bad contracts we made 2 or 3 years ago? How many people do you suppose are just hearing about all that for the first time. How many times do we keep beating a dead horse.

It's an answer to the question being asked. What happened in 1998 is not.

It is ironic that people bitch about not having cap space because we overpaid for some player, and therefore, it has prevented us from overpaying for other players.

Part of me wonders how much of the bitching comes from sheer boredom.

Redundant question that has been asked 10 times since Tuesday and the same people answering with the same bitchy remarks. Who doesn't know or needs you to keep regurgitating the same old opinions you bring up in every thread? Just because someone asks a stupid question doesn't mean you need to answer it ad nauseum. We get it already. Can't undo it so, why keep bitching about something you can't change. You think by complaining it will get better??

I just do not understand, like was it Marty that horrible, or was it JR trying to not be called cheap. If you where Marty 2 years ago, you HAVE to let D-Will go to Denver you HAVE to. There is no bullshit excuse for this. Now I see the 49ers keep getting better with all there team being pro bowlers and we suck? No upgrades, just downgrades. Do you guys not understand this is bad. We will be ripped to shreds by BETTER teams in the NFL. When I say better I mean 28 other teams. Rivera you're done dude. See ya. As for those bull poo winning streaks at the end of the season? Don't bother you're out for good so just let us tank like the Bobcats.

It all started with us not blowing everything up after 2008. Tanking 2 years was understandable until we broke the bank trying to overpay for players on a 2-14 roster and keeping the GM in tact.

Had we done in 2008 what the Colts did in 2011, we'd be in a much better position.
