MMP: Thomas Hates the West Coast

mmp.pngMonday Morning Punter is back this week and we’ll take a closer look at some of the signings and one that everyone thought would happen but didn’t.

– Adalius Thomas prefers the East Coast over the West Coast.

– Nate Clements: You’re the man now dog.

– Donte Stallworth is in the program. Donte, tell Antonio Bryant hi for us.

– There may just be a God, Kwame Harris and the word trade have come up in the same sentence. (scroll down to the OL discussion)

– As of 7:28am the 49ers have no visits setup with players, that we know of.

  1. Lance Briggs….what would it take to get him?

  2. too much. Focus on Bunta-Cain. remember, Nolan said he is looking to get 5-7 defensive starters.

  3. We need another right guard and tackle bad!!!. Maybe Harris would be better on another team in another system. I hope they trade him and shore up the o-line.

  4. what about packaging smiley and something else for briggs, like maybe smiley and a 3rd rd pick?

  5. THAT WOULD BE SWEET TO TRADE KWAME FOR A FOURTH RD PICK….CORY THATS NOT A BAD THOUGHT FOR BRIGGS EITHER…WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING WHETHER ITS FREE AGENCY OR A HIGH DRAFT PICK BECAUSE WE STILL HAVENT HELPED THE PASS RUSH AND B.Y. IS GOING TO BE DONE MOST LIKELY AFTER THIS YEAR…IT DOESNT MATTER HOW GOOD OUR SECONDARY IS IF WE CANT GET TO THE QB, WITHOUT A PASS RUSHER OUR D HAS NOT GOTTEN THAT MUCH BETTER IN MY OPINION

  6. Forget Briggs, he’s not coming to San Francisco. I think we are done in FA for the most part, time to focus on the draft. It looks like Carriker will be the pick, and wait to see which WR falls to #42. I think we should trade down, get Patrick Willis and another 2nd round selection. W/ that we could either stay in the 2nd w/ two picks or move back in to the first.

  7. just like what greg said, we need to improve our pass rush. nolan must have something else in plan.

  8. Adan Carriker is so OVERRATED

  9. Adam Carriker is so OVERRATED what did he do the last two years? Nothing. PATRICK WILLIS IS A BEAST!!! A tackling machine. What do the chicago bears and Baltimore Ravens have in common? Middle linebackers, URLACHER AND R. LEWIS Remember in a 3-4 defense the line doesn’t bring the presure its the line backers. IMAGINE LAWSON,MOORE,WILLIS and J PORTER. Now and offense has to wonder who’s blitzing. We can get a DE in the second rd easy. Name me a probowl DE in a 3-4 not many. Mostly LB’s

  10. Richard Seymour is a Pro Bowler at 3-4 DE. Also, Urlacher and Ray Lewis wouldn’t do JACK without badass linemen occupying all their blockers. Teams are built from the lines outward.

    Why does everyone here want the flashy players? We need those lunchpail types who do the dirty work. They win more games than so-called “playmakers”.

  11. i agree wih justin// urlacher isnt shit when he gets blocked off the ball…….. meaning when his d=line cant occupy extra blockers. we need great players to fill every position

  12. totally agree with Justin. thats why we spent the money on Franklin. A big strong guy that doesnt mind getting dirty and can occupy 2 gaps in the line. Bunta-Cain would flourish in our system with his aggressive pass rush and Chris Draft would fit in perfectly as well. and both of them will cost less than half the price for Porter.

  13. are they gonna interview bunta cain any time soon? they could get him and joe horn for about the same price as just joey porter. go for the young lb and the wise old wide receiver nolan, horn can still contribute

  14. The Saints cut Horn because they said he failed his physical.

  15. – Donte Stallworth is in the program. Donte, tell Antonio Bryant hi for us/ what do you mean by that

  16. Someone on the espn niners message board reported that according to Vernon Glen of KRON, Porter is to visit the niners today. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

  17. We aren’t gettin Briggs, he doesn’t fit in the 3-4 defense. Look for maybe Banta Cain, and according to 49er Sam on the 49erswebzone, Nolan is looking to trade for a young OLB. A lot of people think that if this is going to happen that its going to be TERRELL SUGGS. This is simply speculation though!!!

  18. jc25….Donte Stallworth is in the substance abuse program. ABryant violated the progam so it was a parting joke to Bryant.

  19. GO BEARS, do you have the link??

  20. “gobears1974” – hope u r right! HOPE you get an answer!!! Waiting to hear with you………..Someone PLEASE!!!!!!!

  21. it was mentioned in a post by some guy on the 49ers message board on espn.com.

  22. Free agency looks to be over for us. Besides a few small moves that is.

  23. We have all forgotten about roddrick green, he is a sack master with very little playing time, he is going to come out of the shadows and you all are going to realize adding an outside linebacker will cost to much money when we already have an amazing one. Im not going to let any of you guys forget it.

  24. perfectly said scott, carriker,carriker,CCCAAARRRRRRRIIIIKKKEERR or branch,branch,BBBBBRRRRRAAAANNNNCCCCHHHHH.

  25. just so you know, and i quote from ESPN.COM

    “The Chicago Bears team? The coaches, players, city and fans? Yeah, I could stay there forever. I love it. But the Chicago Bears organization? I don’t want to be there anymore. I won’t play for them and I’ll do everything in my power to keep from playing there.”
    — Lance Briggs

  26. “Scott”…I read that on another forum too. I agree with that guy, and I agree with you! Also, we need depth at every position except QB and Safety. It wouldn’t hurt to add Joey Porter, I can assure you.

  27. any word on Kelly Wahington WR CIN…….did he sign wit Dolphins??

  28. or D. Jackson WR ..SEA

  29. In all reality guys I think that nolan is going to go one of 2 ways. Either Trade up for Gaines Adams or trade down for someone like Carriker. And as far as free agency we are good with where we are at. Any new face might make us that much better.

  30. did you guys forget about frank gore?in my opinion we need to pay our playmaker,not someone who hasn’t done anything yet.yes I would love to have porter as a niner,but I’d rather frank gore be a niner longer.can you imagine frank gore being a cowboy?or a raider?cause that’s where he’ll probably end up.

  31. has porter visited with the niners yet? im just waiting to hear he signed with san diego.

  32. because he probably will.

  33. I hear ya Scott!! Rod-Green is going to be big for us. A real sleeper he is.

  34. i think green is good too, but why did nolan cut him once beforew this season? no one else picked him up either. as for gore. u guys need to chill. i love gore as much as you guys, but gore is niner property for 3 more years. no need to trip right now. i say they extend him after this season or even the next season so they can see if last year was a one time thing or if its the real deal. i know frank is a savage, but i do think if he were gonna catch dickinson, last year was the year, next year i think were gonna air it out more. take the chains off of smith and get behind the kid. they didnt really let him throw too much so far, partly because of protection and lack of receivers but i expect he gets his shot to impress this year.

  35. Not Porter but I hope we sign him!
    San Francisco hosted a visit with Patriots free agent linebacker Tully Banta-Cain

  36. TJ, I just heard the same thing too. Banta-Cain aint leavin here with out a contract!!! we deff. gunna land this guy i can feel it. He is a sack MACHINE!!! He would help our pass rush sooo much.

    In other news EJ visited New Orleans today. 😦

  37. hey guys i was just watching nfl network and it said we signrd clements to a 10yr contract not 8

  38. troy williamson-vikings,marques colston-new orleans(if horn dont resign),isac bruce or tory holt-rams,steve smith or keshawn johnson-panthers,joey galloway -bucks(if they dont sign calvin johnson).plaxico burress or amoni toomer-giants,anquan boldin or larry fitzgerarld-arizona,darrell jackson or deon branch-seahawkst.j.houshmandzadeh or chad johnson-bengals,joe jurevicius or braylon edwards-browns,hines ward or santonio holmes-steelers,derrick mason ormark clayton-ravens.here is 80 million reasons to sign nate clements!!!!!
