    I'd take Vanden Bosch or Bernard, but I don't think it would solve much

    every one of those are old as ****. Since Emery has also recently come out and said there is absolutely no way in hell we're going to a 3-4 defense, our best bet is to kick the tires on Toe again (although he looked like he was over the hill last year), and see if Okoye wants to play again. Other than that, they just need to work out as many young FA's as possible, and hope they find SOMEONE who knows how to play.


    For the last time, we are NOT getting Richard Seymour; he's more interested in doing t.v., and is doing well with his finances.

    We are not trying to sign someone for the future, we are trying to salvage the season. If one of theses guys or someone in a trade can upgrade them at DT they need to do it IMO.

    But there's no one to trade for, and Seymour is NOT going to be a Chicago Bear. He's happy NOT playing football, and the fact that only the 49ers have even expressed interest in him shows we're not in the running. Kicking the tires on old players is what we're gonna have to settle for this season.

    giants season is over, Shaun Rogers can probably be had for a 7th rounder (6th at the most)...not the answer for the future but Paea, Rogers, Cohen and Minter can get us through the season with situational help from Wootton.

    I do not see Emery trading away any more 2014 draft picks for a potential new DT. Emery has already traded our 7th round pick away to Dallas for Rosario, but IMO that only happened because he gained a 6th round pick from the Bucs for Camiri. Also Emery has expressed that his theory to building a contender year in and year out is through the draft.... shows you how high he values draft picks.

    Salvage the season? Come again? We have a rookie head coach and a GM transitioning his own personnel in. Going .500 is being good and optimistic considering.

    No way would I wish Emery to mortgage picks and players this season that most likely won't sniff the playoffs.

    biggest problem is that there is no cap room for anyone that is good, and proven. DT's worth a damn are going to kill the cap. Hard to make any trades at this point that don't sacrafice the future w/picks and kill the cap.

    There isn't going to be a trade. Let that go.
