Jon Baldwin: “I felt like I could run everything in the game plan.”

SAN FRANCISCO – Here’s what Jon Baldwin said at his locker after Sunday night’s preseason game.

ME: Has this week been tough for you?

BALDWIN: No, I wouldn’t say that at all.

ME: What kind of challenge has it been cramming the whole play book in a week?

BALDWIN: To be honest with you, it’s really not a challenge at all. This is my job. I’ve got to learn the play book. I spend a lot of time with the offensive staff, extra time learning the plays and repping those plays out in practice. Those things definitely help, to keep going over and over the plays.

Q: How many plays did you feel you had down pat and could run today?

BALDWIN: I felt like I could run everything in the game plan. I would definitely say all of the plays in the game plan.

Q: 100 plays?

BALDWIN: It may actually be a little bit more than 100.

Q: And you could learn all of that because you were familiar with the terminology?

BALDWIN: There is some carryover from Kansas City, but whenever I have free time I’m studying the plays. During lunch, after lunch – I’m studying. I never want to get in a situation where I’m out there and I really don’t know what to do. That’s not a good feeling when you go out there and you don’t know the play and you’re looking around for help.

    1. It’s a numbers crunch. Right now they have 5 OLBs, which is one more than they probably need. And they could use an extra spot for another position group. This is a good omen for the progress of Lemonier.

    2. Always liked Haralson. His 2012 preseason injury was a big loss. If they trade him, I hope they get a high pick.

  1. I hope the 9ers bench boldin and Moore for next game they are locked in as starters.. Also bench Davis and McDonald let the other players play..the team is loaded with Talent. Time to trade good back ups for some draft picks.. Hope we keep the rest of our starters safe..

  2. Parys is a good talent…hes a starter in this league. He just got hurt when linebacker U came together.. Pat.Bowman,Smith,Brooks. He would be a great sub for us, but a good starter for another team

  3. Baldwin might not have the speed to be your typical deep threat, but he still can get out there deep enough where you can trow it up and watch him fgo get it

  4. IMO we already won with this trade. This kids attitude is 100% better than aj’s. hope baalke learned from last years miserable pick ups. ( looney?! Aj, Jacobs, James) lemonere looks like the real deal though I think we need parts for pass rushing depth.

  5. Baldwin wait till the regular season starts and play the game. And by the way, if baldwin can’t figure out the K.C offensive scheme, I wonder how is he going to figure out the 9ers much more complex scheme?

  6. I hope James won’t be Gore’s back up, James is too small …I hope we get a bigger running back via trade or something….

  7. Good article Grant. Keep up the good and hopefully, positive writing.
    I think that the trade for Baldwin was a major coup and redemption for Baalke (considering the A J Jenkins debacle). But then, even DiMaggio & The Babe didn’t always hit home runs…
    Like R. Woods, McGrew, and Ifeanyi, there will always be mistakes…
    So lets look forward to a great season.
