Bad example considering what outsiders have been saying about Moss since we signed him.

Randy Moss is probably the (look away NBT) 2nd greatest receiver of all-time, and put up over 1000 yards and double digit TDs in 2008 and 2009. To me those are two very different things. It's not like we brought in Antonio Bryant.

Over 1500 yards and close to 20 TDs. And that was just in two years. Merriman's 5 sacks in 3 years isn't in any way comparable.

As a back up. I see no harm in that.

For the right price I would love him as a back up.

Merriman visited and then we signed Bakhtiari? Or did he visit after we signed him? If it's the latter, it doesn't bode well for Merriman.

The 49ers signed linebacker Eric Bakhtiari instead. San Francisco was looking for another option after Clark Haggans was suspended three games for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

Ah I thought Merriman visited after we signed Bakhtiari. Oh well, obviously they felt he was the better option, or do you think its salary related?

Maiocco tweeted somewhere that Bakhtiari's skills on special teams led to them going with him.

What day did we sign bakhatari?
I read Merriman visited yesterday. He said he's talked to a few teams but doesnt want to play for a 43. He sounded like he wanted to play for us though. Vet min would be better than nothing if I was him.

They must feel that he is washed up.

I may sometimes be at odds with harbaugh and baalke with the draft (just different philosophy), but they are excellent at getting what fits this team, and they no doubt have an incredible eye for talent. If they met with merriman and then went another direction I have every confidence that they did it for good reason and he just wasn't as good a fit
