This week Mishpacha Magazine published an article in their Family First section about the mother-in-law/son-in-law relationship. I was asked to provide some input on the topic. If you click twice on each page, you should be able to enlarge the page and read. Would love to know from our readers how they have been able to have a successful relationship with their in-laws.

    The 49ers should sign Goldson to a long term deal, but they shulodn’t pay him top safety money. I was disappointed with Goldson play this year. Last year, Goldson was awesome. This year he wasn’t worth top five safety money. Offer him a long term deal that’s fair, nothing more. But evaluate what’s fair properly.Regarding Alex Smith it’s clear the 49ers are going to play the bluffing game. They’ll say he’s ours and we’re going to sign him, hoping to trade Smith. But unless the 49ers can find a trading partner who thinks Smith 8 million a year or so is what he’ll get on the open market, it’ll be hard for the 49ers to trade Smith. Look at all the rookie qbs who are playing for peanuts and doing well. That alone decreases Smith’s value. Why pay Smith 8 million per year when you can draft a qb, get similar productivity and find a guy who might have a higher ceiling. We all know Smith’s ceiling. I truly believe the Jets are the best trade partner for the 49ers. I seriously doubt the Browns want Smith. Norv can do special things with Weeden, and Weeden’s ceiling could be higher . for a lot less. Arizona just got burned with Kolb. Think they want Kolb II in Smith. Kolb was serviceable under Reid, but under Whizzerhurtz Kolb was awful. Could be the same dynamic under Arians. Smith serviceable under Harbaugh, but a disaster under Arians. I think Arians will look to draft a guy like Barkley and develop him. Arians did great with Luck. I bet Arians tries to repeat that same dynamic with a rookie qb in Arizona. The more teams that do this, the less Smith will get on the open market, and Smith’s number will drop from 8 million a year to more like 4 million a year. A team like the Jets may need to make a committment to a guy like Smith to sell tickets, and Revis is available. Revis is worth a 1st, Smith is worth a 3rd if Smith is okay with restructuring his contract. The 49ers obviously think Smith is worth something or they wouldn’t be playing games in the media, but I think it’ll be tough to trade Smith with an 8 million per year price tag.Who here thinks 14 picks will make the team? I know I don’t. I don’t think half of those picks will make this year’s team. So the 49ers might waste 7 picks. Look at last year’s draft. Gone are the days 49er fans can just say (like they have been with Jenkins) he isn’t playing so he isn’t good. Look at last year’s draft: Looney, Flemming, Robinson, Cam Johnson ..and Jenkins? What’s not to hate? Robinson is too small. Cam Johnson will never be an every down linebacker. Who freakin’ knows about Flemming? Looney looks to be a good guard for the future, and Jenkins is another quick, small receiver on a team full of quick and small skill players. The answer is trades. Move up, move down and defer, package for a first rounder. Trade for players like Revis. It’s that simple. If the 49ers do nothing this draft trade-wise, it’s weakening the team . not strengthening it.I know Harbaugh likes to red shirt his freshman, but this team has some holes and there’s nothing wrong with coaching up rookies and playing them their rookie years. Look at 2012 Culliver, Miller, Hunter. We need immediate impact players on the defensive line who can learn immediately, from Justin Smith. I’d also love to see the 49ers find a second tight end to start his rookie year and replace or put serious pressure on Delanie Walker. We need a tall tight end who can grab the ball with his hands above his head. Ever see Vernon Davis do that? Never.
