    I think there's a good chance he could be let go. The last two seasons he was supposedly poised to have a breakout year, so I'm somewhat skeptical. He'll have this training camp to show himself. I really hope he can, because the guy is monstrous. The only person on the team stronger than Sopoaga is Larry Allen.

    When Nolan benched Anthony Adams, it was Fields who started at NT, even though he's not as strong and is better suited DE. Sopoaga only started to get more PT once Fields went on IR with a broken arm. He made some nice stops here and there in the running game, but what I remember most was him struggling 1 on 1 with offensive linemen.

    Joe Cohen was drafted to play NT and Rayburn and Fields can backup that position as well. With 3 DEs in Douglas, BY, and McDonald, 2 DE/NTs in Rayburn and Fields, and 2 NTs in Franklin and Cohen, I think Sopoaga will be the odd man out.

    I look at it like this:

    1. Soap performs well and the team keeps 8 linemen, cutting one of the LBs, such as Rod Green.

    2. Soap performs well and the team lets go of Cohen and possibly tries to put him on the practice squad.

    3. Soap doesn't perform well and is cut. (I see this one as the most likely)

    But who knows. I guess we'll see how good my crystal ball is in a couple months.

    I didn't buy him as a quarterback. He's just so stiff, especially when he drops back to pass. Really stiff. He reminds me of Kurt Warner.

    I love how this went from NFC West to a 49er thread.

    Sounds great, like the site.

    First time post as I typically stay on Niner boards, but you guys gotta cool site hear. I also saw the Seahawks message board (okay) and the poor Cards still don't have one, unless you count yahoo's or something. I guess thats what happens when you don't have a fan base.

    See you guys at least twice this year.

    That will tend to happen when whiner fans join in the discussion. It looks like our friends from seahawks.net are lying low on this one.

    Actually, there IS a small but nice little Cards site. It's part of the fan2fan alliance (F2FA) and it's called CardinalFreak. Ask BrainDaddy, he's posted over there a few times (and needs to answer the post where I said Darrell Jackson was a perfect complement to Frank Gore).

    Dez, I know you don't like linking to other sites, but since both are a part of the F2FA, I figured it was OK.

    Now that BD's had the time to respond over there...

    I said Jackson is the PERFECT complement to Gore on SF's offense.

    Jackson has 'dropsies', Gore has fumbles...

    Gore and Jackson - the Butterfinger Boys!
