On a positive note, Mike has stated in his post game presser that Barry will be able to play through it with a cast on his hand.

Yeah, they've said Baker is moving to DE to fill-in while Jenkins serves his suspension, possibly permanently due to the Carriker injury.

first four games include philly, oakland, detroit, so i'm not concerned. it certainly doesn't help when going up against a team like green bay though (the other game in the first 4 weeks.)

long term it means we still don't have an answer at d line. jenkins is our best option at this point in time and that's not a very good situation.

i guess the bright side is that we've been severely handicapped since Shanahan got here - lockout and restricted free agency year 1, cap penalties years 2 and 3. yet somehow he's managed to build an offense that's returning all of it's starters off a top 5 ranking last year with some potential improvements. i think most people agree our linebacker core is significantly improved and good. the additions of ammerson and minnifield also look good.

you can't fix all the problems in one offseason and we've had 3 handicapped offseasons in a row... if d line and safety play is all that remains suspect after this year then I suppose that's not all that bad...

can go along with you on that.

I hope the team balance/progression isn't permanently altered when Robert receives what will surely be a whopping/top 5 in the league post-Rookie contract.

Seemed like I saw Baker playing NT last night
He did. He also played end. Looked to me like they had him lined up in 3 different gaps. Haslett is a mad man! ;)

Glad to hear Cofield won't be missing the opener. He played like a man possessed against the Steelers.
