I believe that Staley was going to get an extension one way or the other, however ... I have NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER that its' timing was a dead-aim shot across Boone's bow ... good things happen when you abide by "the 49er way"

When are we going to understand that it is not the CS that evaluates and selects draftees / free agents ... that job is the responsibility of Baalke and his personnel/scouting staff

The real question was ... who, of the less-than-stellar receiving corp other than Q ... was able to get open (until Crabs return)? In Q's case, being open is irrelivant

Don't see any way that Hunter goes (in any form other than IR) until ... (1) we know for sure that Lattimore "is back" (all the way), (2) James is appointed "THE returner", and (3) there are no other RB injuries

Baalke doesn't work that way ... he will NOT get an extension unless he reports to camp first; if he doesn't report pretty early on, he could find himself earning more money ... but missing the playoffs in Cleveland or Miami or ?
