Default Position of Concern

Safety....collapses left and right. We got beat a bunch of times last year on breakdowns in the position once Dawkins went down, but I thought it was because the kids were young. ANyone else concerned about this going forward This warm-up kinda brought that position to light again,in a negative way

Bueller??

Not as worried about safety as I was I think otis this year made a big differenece.. Having a solid coach might help also.

Are any of these guys Atwater, Smith,,Lynch or Dawkins probably not but certainly not a panic situation either..

my only concern is anyone that is not on the first team. Not impressed with our backups.

RB depth after Willis (although Moreno made some decent plays catching the ball in space.

Depth at Sam and depth at Will LB.

Depth at both guard positions.

WR depth after Demaryius Thomas and Decker, although with all of the multiple TE sets I'm not that concerned.

Backup QB is a concern too, although I thought Hanie actually recovered pretty well after the INT, but he still likes to throw behind his receivers quite a bit.

Pretty much every backup position on the team. Our depth is woeful.

As a start, probably anyone from the 49ers. And I do mean anyone...

Pretty much agreed. We will have to watch the waiver wire throughout the season to see if any quality drops. Our backups look terrible. I'd say we're 6-7 deep on the OL. HB looks steady even if we cut Slowshon. Would have loved to see Osweiler do something this preseason but he regressed. I've never been impressed with WR 3-5. Stokely gets overused during the season and breaks down, that's what he does. TE's seem to drop a lot of balls or miss blocks.

DT depth is concerning. Back end depth hasn't worked itself out either.

We got a long ways to go. Starters look solid though.

I think we are all starting to agree on this. Our depth is crap. I like a few of our DL rotation guys but the secondary is horrible. Even the starting unit is not that good. Other then Champ, who in our secondary starts for anybody else? I like Harris and I think he's showing good improvement but the others look terrible.


And we might as well just cut Irving now and find somebody else after cuts are made. He's just a bad LB.

CB depth is good, DT depth is good, Lbers and Safties are hurting. I look for Brooking to be released and Denver will grab a LBer that is cut.

Our depth at S and LB is a problem. But this is not exactly news, is it?
