Fooch's Note: It's late in the evening, but I think this is worth a little front page time. Highly entertaining stuff and I might indeed put together a comparison of this year's starting lineup with the 2005 starting lineup next week.
We all remember 2005. Alex Smith's first season. After the jump, we will look at this groundbreaking roster. And to people saying "You already made a FanShot of this", too bad! I filled in more detail!
Here's your 2005 San Francisco 49ers starting offensive roster! Playoffs or bust!
At running back: Starters Kevan Barlow and Maurice Hicks!
At wide receiver, with a lineup rivaling the 2009 New Orleans Saints, we have Brandon Lloyd, Jhonnie Morton, Arnaz Battle, and Jason McAddley! CAN YOU SAY FOUR PRO BOWLERS????
At tight end, we have Billy Bajema!
Your starting offensive line, a foreshadowing to the 2009 New York Jets: Adam Snyder at LT, Justin Smiley at LG, Jeremy Newberry at C, Eric Heitmann at RG, AND Kwame "THE BEAST" Harris at RT!
AND OF COURSE, YOUR STARTING QUARTERBACKS, Tim Rattay, Ken Dorsey, AND YOUR #1 OVERALL DRAFT PICK ALEX SMITH!
Boy, I know that #1 pick quarterbacks generally don't do well their first season, BUT I GOT A GOOD FEELING THIS TEAM WILL BUCK THE TREND! LOOK AT THIS OFFENSIVE FIREPOWER! What do you think, Chris Berman?
BOY YOU GOT THAT RIGHT! THIS IS A GOOD CORE FOR THIS TEAM TO BUILD ON! THIS TEAM IS GOING BACK, BACK, BACK, BACK TO THE PLAYOFFS!
