My case to why we should not take an OT at 14

90 posts in this topic

Sure they were. But are you telling me that SF OLINE would've won them into the SB with Alex Smith at QB? No way.

Kaepernick won them all those games. Without Kaep, they would've loss to GB in the Divisional rd.

They were a fumbled punt away from a SB with A Smith.

We were a John Kasay kickoff out of bounds away from going into OT.

It's probably already been said, but this is a really poor comparison. Not well thought out at all. All the teams that struggled with a first round LT have one thing in common. Shitty, or average QB play. Outside of the Texans (and I would say Schaubb is just above average), every single one of them had questionable Quarterbacks. The difference is we have arguably one of the ten best Quarterbacks in the game. Protecting him with a franchise LT would not only be a very smart investment, it would also lead to better play from Cam and the rest of the offense.....

With a rookie 1st round pick (#8 overall) starting at RT.

That is irony.

Sure, just like Bulaga with GB or Solder with NE.

LT: Steussie (1st, FA)

LG: Jeno (6th)

C: Mitchell (5th, FA)

LG: Donalley (3rd, FA)

RT: Gross (1st)

So you would have passed on Gross at #8?

Stafford, Romo, Cutler, Garrad? Above average.

Most of the teams have something in common also. That is, they lacked playmakers while drafting a franchise OTs. Can't blame some of them bc it was a need. But for us, OT is not in our Top5 needs.

The point is, it doesn't matter how great a franchise LT or OT in general you have. If you don't have people who can score points for you, you're not going to win a lot of games.

Stafford is definitely not above average. Romo and Cutler are debatable with all the gaffs they have. Garrad....meh, he's not a QB that's going to take over games. My point was the teams that had Quarterbacks that can take over games and added a franchise OT, the results speak for themselves. I'm not saying we should absolutely draft an OT with our first pick, because that's just ridiculous. I'm saying I don't understand why some people don't think we need one, or don't think they're that important....

If you can't protect your playmakers you aren't gonna score points or win games either.
