We are now officially entering the six week dead zone between OTAs and training camp. Hopefully all of our players will stay in shape and out of trouble. It looks like Armstead, Buckner, Blair, Harold and maybe Thomas are heading over to train together in Hawaii after the first of the month. Hoyer is also planning on holding some workouts of his own with the wide receivers between now and training camp. I wonder how many other 49ers players have plans to workout together?
I personally have found myself caught up in the early hype. I have become a believer that Shanahan can turn this group of players into a team that may have a chance in almost every game. I am excited about our defensive line, our linebackers, even our cornerbacks. I am also beginning to be sold on our receivers and their ability to get open. While I am not completely sold on our offensive line, I have faith in Shanahan and John Benton to be able to field a good enough product to work with our new system.
For those of you that are interested, I am planning to get started with a new series of articles next week that focus on our position coaches. Hopefully it will help fill in the time.
Anyway, onto the hot links:
