Morning folks, Ninjames here... the present Ninjames, not the one from the future. He's... well he's in the future. Anyway, the offseason is rather slow but I'm rather busy with Bay Area-related things and the like. Be sure you check out this fanpost Fooch put up (and rec it) about a SB Nation Bay Area meetup in San Francisco - be there! I don't know that I'll be able to actually make it but I'm gong to do my very best. It would be nice if we could get the most people for our meetup, as the other regional sites are hosting their's, the Bay Area site launches last - would just be fitting, no? Anyway, I'm sure I have a couple 49ers links for you today but nothing really has been happening, which I guess is a good sign since there's no negative headlines. Still would be nice to get some guys signed, I should probably ask future Ninjames when all that goes down.
Barrows continues his rookie review, finishing up with Kyle Williams and Phillip Adams. I believe both of these players will make the 49ers 53-man roster when it all comes down to it. (SacBee.com)
I don't think our CB position is as weak as everyone assumes. I do think it needs to be upgraded in one of the first two rounds of next year's draft, but I'm alright with Clements and Spencer being locked in as our starters for this season. (CSNBayArea.com)
There's competition everywhere, according to this article. I think it's a bit overblown, and I'm kind of laughing at that first bit about it even possibly being a bad sign that there is competition for the backups. (SFGate.com)
