  • Baas is not the answer for us at center

    Baas got pushed around tonight and in my opinion is a major reason why we have failed to run the ball effectively this year. He is average in pass protection and below average at getting leverage / opening holes in the run game. He seems like a nice enough guy, but we need a mauling center who can push people around. This is NYG football, we need to run the ball!

    It is beyond obvious when Petrus came in at LG and Boothe shifted to center that we played better overall. If we as fans can notice the difference, then you know Reese has to see it. If we fail to make changes next year it's because Reese has too much pride to admit the Baas signing was a poor one.

    This offense line as a whole didn't play as well as it could have, but they get a bit of a pass considering the defense. Only a bit.

    Boothe isn't very good at snapping the ball, and if you've seen Dilfer talk about what bad snaps do--even when they are a tiny bit off-- to the Qb's read, we would both be in agreement that there needs to be many changes, and one of them is to not have Boothe as a center.

    This issue will hopefully be dealt with in the offseason.

      That was a tough team and a really good front 7. Baas is our center for one more game this season. So can we just give him our support for that one game and worry about changes in the off season?
      Do not feed the trolls.

        They where playing a very good defense, but I thought they looked very good when Boothe and Petrus where in there.

                  You ain't kidding. I think Beatty will end up at RT (I don't think he makes a very good LT)next year and hopefully we can draft a stud LT or sign one in FA. I don't think he's gonna make it another season.

                    I agree with you totally, I don't think Beatty makes it as LT with us, better off on the right side.

                    Go Giants!

                      I agree the running game gets way better when Boothe and Petrus are in. Kevin Boothe has been a big factor in keeping the team together this season. Who'd have thought at the start of the season that Boothe, Blackburn, Ballard and Cruz would play such huge roles in this season. I thought Cruz would be good; but nothing like this.

                        Baas is horrible, but he did get hurt again and maybe that had a lot to do with it. Anyone know what the deal was in the middle of the season? What was his injury?

                          Draft Peter Konz. A center at 32 overall isn't shabby and he's better value than that. Just have to hope the Lions don't snag him up first.

                            Well said. Some fan are forgetting that the 49ers were a top five defense this year and that they are scary good. Also people are forgetting that Baas had no offseason to work with the team. Give the guy a break please.

                            Oh yeah and we WON THE GAME LAST NIGHT!
