Didja Hear the One About the Brain-Dead Cornerback?

Yikes. This has all been plastered all over the web-o-spheres, but really, how stupid is Chris Culliver? Here’s a guy who, on the verge of the biggest game of his young career, spouts anti-gay remarks to a Howard Stern employee on tape. Ooops. He follows that with a supremely shitty game.

The ice was thin at that point, but he did the necessary percerption-is-reality speech and vowed to spend a month hanging out at the Stud to immerse himself in the gay community and maybe figure out how to cover a tight end coming out of the backfield. Wink wink.

On his way back to respectability, he managed to blow his knee out early last training camp, and thus was lost for the season. He kept his nose clean and was on his way back to his under-the-radar status, and inheriting a starting spot at CB, what with Tarell Brown scooting across the Bay Bridge for Oaktown, and Carlos Rogers being given his outright release. However, last Friday morning, he managed to hit a bicyclist on Seventh Ave in San Hozay, and proceeded to flee the scene. In his attempted flee he clipped another car and was eventually cornered by a concerned citizen who witnessed the hit-and-run. For his concern, the citizen was then threatened to get the shit beat out of him by our (anti) hero with a pair of brass knuckles if he didn’t get out of his way. The cops arrived, and I guess Chris figured it was time to cut his losses, as you don’t bring brass knuckles to a gun fight. 

Aside the societal ramifications of football players who think they are somehow bigger than the world they live in, Culliver isn’t a good enough corner to recieve the rope that a guy like Aldon Smith got (hey Aldon! Check out MY gun collection!!). So, he’s likey on a one-way ticket to Pac-Man Jonestown. A couple years spent in purgatory (with a 3 month stint in the Santa Rita Correctional Facility), and some serious image rehab. More often than not, these guys do mend their ways, at least perceptually (which is all that matters to Goodie Goodell), but other times you end up like Art Schichter. Doin’ hard time after running a gambling ring in the early 80s, and now a ticket-selling scam where he pocketed millions to gamble with.

    Speaking of cornerbacks, if we sign either Nnamdi, Bailey, or (urk) Rogers, you will see a lot of BLEEPs. I’d be MUCH happier with a rookie back there.

    Culliver is an idiot. But how many idiots are in the NFL, biding their time before they present themselves on the national stage as Grade A-1 Class idiots?
    I look at guys like Culliver like I do guys who take steroids and get busted in MLB. If you’re dumb enough to not be able to beat a steroid test then I don’t want you on the team anyway.

    I bet he has little support around himself out here on W Coast.

    Somehow Culliver forgot to notice the CB depth coming out in the Draft in May.
    Stupid is as stupid does I guess……

    Why overpay in FA when kids from College have dreams to make it in the Pros?
    And….they come at bargain rates.

  8. Over turning umpire/referee calls already happening in beesball. We’re dying for this in the NFL:

    http://www.myfoxny.com/story/25121087/umps-call-overturned-1st-time-by-expanded-replay

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, NJ. That’s my feeling with DSJ as opposed to a rook. Now CB as well. They better not go with Bailey or Rogers.

    • Rogers signed w/Oakland yesterday = the place 9ers go to finish up

    • NJ49er says:

      Chuck, there’s absolutely no reason to gamble with DJax in the locker room IMO.
      Contract demands not withstanding, he’s never been known for his work ethic or team first attributes.
      Like Revis, he’s all about Pay Me.

      I believe Baalke knows the game well enough to know, that you don’t overpay for guys with baggage.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Kenny Britt? One year, $1.4 is chicken feed. But he brings some baggage with with him.

    • NJ49er says:

      Reunited with Jeff Fisher.
      Might be a comfort zone there?

      I think Fisher Drafted him in TN?

  11. Spitblood says:

    My people will not be placated!!!!!

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, NJ. If they were desperate, they woulda gone after Britt. DSJ is Britt x 10.

    • NJ49er says:

      Britt with Anthony Davis around might have been worth the 1year gamble IMO Chuck.
      Both are NJ guys/Rutgers Grads.

      Britt definitely has some baggage in tow but, it looks like he and Jeff Fisher are going to rekindle their past relationship in St Louie now.
      Kenny is a beast, when he wants to be.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Definitely need some cover guys facing them. They got speed at WR.

    Well, that or a pass rush . . .

    • NJ49er says:

      We’ll get our share of talent next month.
      Plenty of options.

      A pass rush is always the answer to beating a passing game.
      Many of these DBs coming out tackle well too, which is something Carlos wasn’t exactly stellar at.
      Even the little guy from TCU, Jason Verrett does a nice job of getting guys on the ground.

      I could easliy see Baalke taking a guy like Stanley Jean-Baptiste and converting him to S.
      Another kid, Dontae Johnson from NC St could go that route too.

      Many of these taller CBs don’t run extremely well but, they’re fast enough to consider in our Secondary system I think.

      Get speed where you need it, Slot CB for example and, maybe, take a chance with a project guy or 2 later in the Draft.
      Maybe consider CB Kendall James from Maine in that scenario?
      Lots of options this year.

      • NJ49er says:

        If we could land a faster S, like Calvin Pryor or Deone Bucannon, along with a fast CB like Verrett or Fuller, we’d be sitting pretty.

        Pryor would involve dealing up for in RD1 however.
        Deone could be there in RD2, maybe 3.

        Fuller is a guy I’d like to have an option for at Pick 30.

        Both Fuller and Bucannon posted 4.4s, Pryor 4.58 and Verrett a 4.38.
        Good mix of options, both at the top of the Draft and, likely throughout.

        Then there’s the WR needs.
        Baalke gets paid to predict where these guys should get slotted and, there’s always other GMs looking to make moves to screw those plans up.
        Quite the shell game.

    There’s talk of Ahmad Dixon Baylor safety being a 2nd day steal ion the draft.

    Big hitter, the Lama . . .

  22. 12th man says:

    Jackson signed with the Skins.

    • NJ49er says:

      Looks like some of us are up late 12th :-D

    • Well our pursuit wasn’t exactly full press desperate like Skins I guess = throwing gobs of money around. We’ll just have to find a passing/return game w/o DSJ

      • NJ49er says:

        I agree Phil –
        I personally didn’t think he’d take to the team approach we foster in SF –
        He’s too much of risk IMO –
        At a bargain price I’d have entertained the risk but…..I won’t lose any sleep over him.
        Gimme a guy that loves to play for the Ring, not the Contract.

        A deal similar to that which Kenny Britt did would have worked for me.

        If RG III continues to get pummeled as he has and balls don’t go DJax’s way, he’ll end up as the 2nd coming of Albert Haynesworth in DC.

  23. NJ49er says:

    PFT reporting DJax will sign in DC today –
    I hear the gangs in DC are pretty well represented – He should feel right at home.

  24. Spitblood says:

    Adam Schefter reporting the 49ers were interested, but guarded. I just need one guy in the 49ers organization to tell me the truth. I have trust issues.

    • NJ49er says:

      When can you really trust the media anyway?
      They’re all whores for a story.

      Sure we might have been interested but, not at the prices he’s looking for.
      As you suggested, Baalke looks for bargains.
      DJax doesn’t roll that way.

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Awwww. Looking for forthrightness from an NFL team is like looking for integrity from Congress.

    Not gonna happen . . .

    Wow. DSJ got $8 mill a year? Might as well start calling Danny Snyder Jerry Jones Jr. Trade away all your draft picks for a QB and then leave him dangling while he gets beaten to a pulp. Forgo getting O line help, yadda yadda yadda.

    How to buy your way into the cellar in 5 easy steps.

  26. unca_chuck says:

    He’s going to want between $9 and $11 mill I think. Somewhere like Vincent Jackson and his 5/$55 mill deal.

    • 12th man says:

      I figure about the same too $10-12 mil, I don’t think he gets a contract from the Niners at that money though.

  27. Spitblood says:

    Right now Crabtree’s only worth 8 million a year, and I don’t think many teams with a qb would pay him more. A team without a qb might but hopefully Crabtree won’t go to a bottom dwelling team again. If Crabtree wants more than 8 million per year, he’s going to need to have a huge 2014 season. It could workout that way for him. Frank Gore’s old. Our line is still intact. We have compliments in Boldin, Patten, Vernon, Baldwin and McDonald Kaep’s heard the criticism and is entering into his second full year as qb. Could be a great year for Crabtree. He could be a nice fantasy football sleeper.

    • 12th man says:

      I think he is worth 8 mil too but figure he asks for 10-12.

      • Spitblood says:

        You can make an argument Crabtree’s worth less than 8 million per year. He hasn’t been nearly as productive as DeShaun Jackson. His agents’ counter argument would be injury, Alex Smith, run-first and Mike Singletary. If both sides are fair, however, they’ll look at Crabtree’s numbers only with Kaepernick and decide value. If Crabtree’s agent then wants to claim the 49er run too much, that may fall on deaf ears because both Seattle and the 49ers, who’ve obviously represented the NFC in the Super Bowl the last two years, have the same successful run to pass ratio. That ratio would be hard to attack in a negotiation.

        I think Crabtree’s actual value is less than DeShaun’s. DeShaun was due 10 this year and because the Eagles did him dirty releasing him now instead of at the beginning of the free agent period, DeShaun lost two million. It’s not like DeShaun got to test the open market when all the money was available. So DeShaun’s probably worth 9 million a year. Crabtree isn’t DeShaun Jackson. Crabtree’s making 4-5 right now. I think he’d be happy making 8 per year, for four years. I don’t think Crabtree is Vincent Jackson at all. Vincent was an awesome deep threat with Phillip Rivers. Then Jackson held out in a battle with AJ Smith for 10 games. When he finally left, the Bucs knew it was going to require big money to sign Vincent and because the Bucs were basically a gutted team, they had the coin.

        The question with Crabtree is whether or not he’ll value playing with Kaep. Vincent Jackson didn’t value playing with Phillip Rivers, or maybe he did but the negotiation with AJ Smith got so fucked Jackson didn’t want to stay. Jackson’s still producing in Tampa with bad qbs, but Tampa and Jackson aren’t going anywhere. Crabtree’s no Jackson (either of them). If Crabtree went to the Bucs three years ago he couldn’t produce with Freeman and that pasty tall bastard Schiano loved.

        There’s also the Mike Wallace scenario that’s to be avoided. If you sign a big deal with crappy qb talent, they either forget about you or they want to renegotiate, which is happening with Wallace. So if Crabtree goes somewhere for the money, Crabtree better get a large portion of that money guaranteed throughout the course of the contract, and no $250,000 guaranteed to protect the year he’s scheduled to make the most money, like DeShaun Jackson did. (Jackson’s agent was a fool). If Crabtree can’t find guaranteed money throughout the length of the contract with a crappy team, and enough guaranteed to prevent being cut, I think Crabtree will re-sign in SF for 4 years, 8 million a year, with 20 million guaranteed. The question, in my mind, is whether or not Crabtree will actually find a team with a lot of cap space, no qb, who will pay him guaranteed money. I don’t think he will…. because Crabtree isn’t as good as Vincent or DeShaun, and he’s not as easy to sell as Mike Wallace.

        I think next year Aldon gets the franchise and I could see Crabtree getting the transition tag from the 49ers with nobody offering Crabtree anything…. or teams offering and the 49ers matching.

  28. unca_chuck says:

    Exactly. He’s not as far off the mark as Goldie Goldson was, but he’s not going to get $11 mill from Jed. $9 mill tops, I’d think. 5/$45 with a $20 mill guarantee?

  29. Spitblood says:

    I love how the entire NFL is spinning the Eagles dumped Jackson because of gang ties. BS. They dumped Jackson because he was due 10 million plus and Kelly thought he could do more with the money else where. Jackson’s never been convicted of anything. But now Adam Schefter is saying Jackson has a chance to clear up his past in Washington. Bullshit. He’s not a criminal. Jackson’s agent didn’t protect Jackson’s biggest year in his contract with enough guaranteed money. $250,000 guaranteed doesn’t protect 10 plus million. They dumped him and Eagles fans have a right to be pissed. But the slave owners just keep beating their slaves with PR.

  30. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, the timing of the story was way too convenient. Yeah, they didn’t want to pay and wanted an out with the fans. Not that this is working very well.

      Micheal Lewis and high frequency traders? It’s all black helicopters these days, Chuck. When’s the middle class going to rise up (not that DeShaun is middle class)? The revolution is starting soon.

      • unca_chuck says:

        Regulation? We don’t need no stinking regulation. Let them regulate themselves. It’s not like they took advantage of the situation before. Oh yeah.

        I’ve been saying that for 8 years now. If the haves keep tilting the game in their favor, it’ll be Bastille day all over again. I think it’ll be close to 2020 if things go as they are.

      • Spitblood says:

        20 years? The rich have figured out a way to keep riots down. They can label you a terrorist and arrest you without observing normal rights and protocol. The new terrorist laws were enacted around the time of the occupy movement. They still apply today. Funny thing is that President Obama, that spineless coward of a president of ours, haven’t even issued a statement about high frequency trading or anything about the integrity of our market. Know why? Because Wall Street is propping up his presidency. They can hold his ass hostage. Right now hedge fund managers and investment bankers are circling the white house in black helicopters warning Obama to shut up until this all blows over.

  32. NoFear49er says:

    If NFL players were being released because of gang ties they wouldn’t field eight teams on game day. DeSean Jackson was too expensive and not good enough to be worth putting up with his shit in the locker room and meetings and bad mouthing the coaches. Who wants a guy who says he’s slacking off in games? He doesn’t just slack off, he says he’s slacking off. Typical locker room cancer of the type that has destroyed many an offense. There’s always someone who thinks they can handle the problem children though. Dan Snyder is the perfect guy to insist his coaches do it, too.

    About a day late with the notion that zero would do anything that doesn’t further oppress his subjects as a result.

      So it’s okay with you if dear leader spends 100’s of millions of taxpayer $$ (of all parties) campaigning and raising money every day of his presidency but so-called “rich” guys can’t support the guy they think will do the most good for them?

      Take all the money out of it. That’s the way to do it. And no campaigning for elected officials on work days. They should be running on their record anyway, not more empty rhetoric. If you can’t do that you must let folks support who they want to support.

      Funny that no one crying now was crying when they were making money on the IT and housing bubbles. You don’t get to ride the wave then complain when you’re in its trough.

      Quit electing phony usurpers and bad character panderers just because they promise you a free lunch at the other guy’s expense.

      • NJ49er says:

        NoFear49er I see the entire process as a rigged game.
        Wall St knew what it was doing with the games they played before the meltdown and, the SEC was looking the other way.
        All was good when the bottom line was fat and happy.
        Politicians are puppets to the rich.

        I’m sick of the entire process.
        No one is looking out for the working class anymore.
        Education is an afterthought in this Country.
        Basic morales and values have been replaced with greed and corruption.

        Is it fair to the Vets that are in need of these free lunches?
        I know too many people that were destroyed on Wall St because those at the top took theirs at the expense of those that supported them.

    There’s no game anymore. The people are out of the loop. Congress’ approval rate is 12%, but the re-election rate is 98%. Can you say gerrymandering? Nothing changes. That’s why every presidential election comes down to 6 or 7 counties in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Besides, when the choice is shyster 1 or shyster 2, you get a shyster.

    Taking the money out of politics is like taking the air out of breathing. It ain’t gonna happen. Not when the poeple making the rules are the one benefitting from them. Insider trading? Yeah, let’s throw Martha Stewart into jail over $6,500.00. Us? Oh, we can do it. We deserve the right to break laws that we enact And we’ll give the CEOs slaps on the wrist and meet them on the golf course with an empty bag.

    There’s no going back. Not when you have SC justice Roberts ruling on everything pro-big biz, and pro-unfettered money inside K Street, and Scalia backing ‘voter reform’ (aka voter repression). et’s hear it for the (corporate) people.

    These tax hearings in the Senate and the House are nothing but show. If the tax guy and CFO at a traded company aren’t doing their best to get the company tax rate down, they get fired.

We are “shocked shocked” that you’re running sales through a subsidiary in Switzerland and Ireland…

  38. unca_chuck says:

    Funny thing is, these CEOs (and the congressmen they bought) said they wouldn’t aggressively searh for loopholes if the corporate tax rate wasn’t so high.

    Right. We’ll gladly bring the money back it the tax rate was 20% instead of 35%. Bull to the shit on that.

    New thread is up.

  39. 12th man says:

    Do it like the Brits do. Let the parties choose the candidate they want to run and give equal free TV time to those candidates to convince the electorate who to choose. The whole election cycle is 2 weeks not 2 years and money is not a part of it.

    Money is the issue and creates immense corruption, worse is that foreign interests are now plying major dark money to try to get the candidate they believe is in their best interests elected. You really want China and India etc influencing our elections?

    The answer to fair elections that represent the electorate is to remove the money aspect. If the Republican or Democrat candidate deserves to be elected why do they need money or more specifically special interest money to sway the vote?

    Don’t kid yourself that Obama was elected by the little guys sending in their $5 donations, the same crooks back both candidates, not quite equally but they back both horses so they win regardless of candidate.

    This same corruption is seen in all elections, local, State and Federal. Want to really be represented? Get behind efforts to remove the money from elections. The Supreme Court continues on its path of gift wrapping the U.S. for big business and Politicians to rig the whole game.

    I am not a fan of Obama and didn’t believe Romney was the right guy either but I really believe that other than the rhetoric they blather and excepting minor differences they would both serve their Masters first and foremost.

    Witness that under the “socialist” President Obama, Wall St has set records consistently whilst Main St has continued to struggle and unemployment remains high. Where is the socialism? Where are the government jobs? Less now than under Bush. What about the illegals? Far more deported under Obama than Bush. Obama has by and large continued and often furthered the exact same big business policies under Bush and those of the other place holders before them. Bought and paid for.

    Obama is trying to get this Pacific trade agreement done. It is really bad for American workers and mostly good for big business. Socialist my ass, that is all bullshit window dressing.

    I am in business for myself and am far from a socialist. I want to make a profit as much as the next guy, but that doesn’t make me blind to the fact that the only businesses benefiting are the really big ones. Firms like mine are squeezed regardless of which party is in power. Taxes have remained about the same for me, corporate and personal. So much for the idea that one party is better for business, not my business, by that they mean huge business, like GE for instance that paid no Federal taxes under either party.

    It’s a shell game guys, it really is. There is a revolution coming but not an armed one (having said that I am keeping my firepower ready anyway). I believe it will be a social revolution like the Arab spring or Ukraine where people will just en mass protest getting a smaller and smaller part of the pie.

    Oligarchs are and have been taking over inch by inch and sooner or later it reaches a tipping point. The Walton family (Walmart) have as much wealth as the lowest 40% of American Citizens and are at the forefront of the fight against minimum wage hikes. They are also widely regarded as one of the worst employers worldwide although interestingly enough, other countries don’t allow many of the practices they use here in the States yet the company is still profitable there. When is enough wealth enough? Does a couple of bucks an hour raise really endanger the Walmart company?

    This is why the Tea Party and Occupy have come into being, not because they share the same views, far from it, but because they share the feeling of being railroaded by the system as is despite polar opposite societal beliefs and now it is reaching the average guy in the street.

    Sorry for the novel.

    The tea party was fine when it was a grass-roots deal when it started. They were idiots, but so are most of the occupiers.

    When Fox news co-opted the tea party as an arm of their apparatus, then all bets were off.

      I used Tea Party and Occupy as 2 visible groups diametrically opposed politically both seeking change in the rigged political system.
      Now that is spreading to Main St average Joe blow, I expect to see Uni and College campuses begin serious demonstrations as the young are generally first to think they can change the world. I also expect it to grow to the point some change will have to occur. Initially largely lip service change to try to placate the population but if people press the issue it will bring about more profound change. The internet is the key since it is mostly not controlled by special interests the way TV and print media is.

      The only reservation I have is be careful what you wish for as in the case of the Arab Spring and now Ukraine the new system is as broken as the old if in a different way.
      Removing money from the election cycles is what is needed not wholesale overthrow of the governing system which when implemented as designed is a great system.

      The warnings of the Founders as well as past Presidents have proven to be true. Value freedom first and foremost.

    The whole dem/republican deal is all smoke and mirrors. 2 flavors of the same koolaid for the most part.

    IU tell you, the bullshit around school loans, and the price of admission, will be a big deal. I got so fucked over by the so-called regulation of school loans. Rates were supposed to go down, but they skyrocketed in the past 10 years.

    • Yes this is a big issue and needs to change to a more affordable model. Luckily I got my loan before it got out of control and paid it off ASAP. I also decided against more education as my 2nd career was only going to be 15 years max = too short to be able to pay off more loans. Now there is a whole huge class of ‘debt slaves’ who are unable to get jobs and are essentially fucked due to Education loans
