This goes out to Takeo...(and one regard to Alex)

Takeo Spikes, thank you for everything, as it's the end of the 3 yr contract we signed you too. As I watched every game this season from start to finish, he showed the most heart, the most effort(even more than P-Dub), and won me over as my favorite defensive player on this team. If anything, as a lot of us have said, that he deserves to make the playoffs. Even though I love having him on our team, anchoring our defense along with willis, I wish we could lend him to the Eagles just for the playoffs, so he could have a chance to play there and maybe win a Super Bowl. He'd make plays that I thought he wouldn't at his age, because he still had a little quickness, making physical and tough tackles. Patrick Willis always says how much of an influence Takeo has been on this team, and I think it's safe to say he was one of the very few bright spots on this team. My favorite play by him this year, was against Tampa Bay, 2nd and goal I think, we're down 14-0, 4th quarter, and the game's pretty much over if they score any points because our offense was doing nothing. Legarrete Blount jumps up and looks like he has a td, but TKO meets him in the air and knocks him to the ground, and Spikes was absolutely pumped up, trying to energize our D, basically showing how much he puts in to every snap, no matter what the score, always trying to win. Thank you Takeo(even if you're not reading this, which probably not), but Takeo Spikes has served his time very well as a 49er, and it's sad that it's probably done. Thanks Takeo.

And Alex, who probably won't be back with this team, I hope he goes to another team and becomes a star, and tears it up.
