Draft Day Part Deux

Eric Reid, come on down! The 49ers traded up to get a safety. It wasn’t the one I expected, but there you have it. They obviously have seen more and know more than the average fan, but still people will bitch.

The Niners still have 3 picks today. I’m still of a mind hey go DL with their 2nd round CB with their next 2nd rounder, and maybe TE?WR with the 3rd round. Meetings all morning. See ya later.

    3 picks today, actually: 34, 63 and 93.

    DE, NT, TE? Or maybe another safety or CB in the mix.

    • JDR says:

      My picks are: Ertz, a surprise pick on an OLB who fell and a large body for the D-Line. Which of course means that they’ll actually take a DE, WR and G.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    Ahh, I was changing it as you posted.

    • Grumpy Guy says:

      We still have a 4th, 5th, 2 6ths and 7th which are NOT compensatory, that we can use to move up in say the third round. The 5th, for instance, could move us up 6 or 7 slots in the third. I would not be surprised to see a couple more trades before the draft is done.

    Rodgers, rolling right… Looks down field…WIDE open is Randall Cobb… TOUCHDOWN PACKERS!!! (Ted Robinson KNBR radio) Where were the Niners’ safeties on that play, E.D.? (Eric Davis) As a 13-year veteran of the NFL and former Pro Bowler, allow me to answer that question for you Ted…first off the Niners have a rookie from LSU playing in the box. Not too smart. First two words that popped into my mind when the Niners drafted Reid were Joe Thomas. That was followed by RMS 49ers Titanic. That’s the compass direction this ship is headin’…And to top that off, pretty sure my eyes are not deceiving me, but they have a white guy playing over the top at the other safety spot. I said white guy. Did you hear me right? I said WHITE guy. That’s W-H-I-T-E…Honky! Playing safety. That’s the best “color” commentary you’ll ever get outta me, TED.

    Did the Packers just score another TD down the middle? They don’t even have the ball. How is that possible? My bad. Silly me. White guy on the field playing safety for the Niners. Anything and everything can and will happen.

    • Irish Kevin says:

      why do you always talk like your full of sh!T?? just a thought I had.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Fan card: Revoked. You are a disgrace. Even the worst doomers aren’t as whiny as you, Dennis.

      • unca_chuck says:

        I’m sorry you fell out of your high chair, Dennis but Christ, we are 4.5 months from kickoff and you whine incessantly in fucking APRIL? Gawd. Lighten the fuck up.

      • Del Mar Dennis says:

        I’ll put my Niner fan card up to you and anyone else for that matter. In the imitable words of longtime boxing announcer, Michael Buffer…I am (Dennis) second tooooooo Nnnnnnuuuunnnnnn! I’m in the red corner wearing white and gold trunks coming in at a “svelte” 220 lbs. With an undefeated record of 49-0. No draws. And all 49 wins coming by way of a TKO… I am the Budweiser Clydesdale WBC (World Beer Champion) Champion of the world….

    • JDR says:

      Wait… Dennis, wasn’t your fantasy team called “No Manning, No Super Bowl” ?

      Shut the fuck up.

  4. RTFirefly says:

    You want doom and gloom? I’ve give you doom and gloom. Read the comments from America’s Team’s “fanbase”.

    It’s a great day to be alive!

  5. RTFirefly says:

    I type too goddamn fast.

  6. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Am I whiny? Maybe so. But it’s best that I express my displeasure. No. Strike that. It is imperative that I release my anger in only words. It’s good for my health and the health of many others. As Dr. Melfi said to Tony, “rage is depression turned inward.” If I didn’t release rage on blogs and in other peaceful, quiet settings. I would be murdering people left and right.

    “Irate 49er fan kills mother and her two kids in Old Towne Pinole. Sources say he became increasingly mad at a moments notice when the mother (Bugs) and her two children, Daffy (8) and Elmer (6) continually tried to feed “his” Mallards crackers at the Pinole Creek. Dennis kept yelling, “Bread! Give them bread! They don’t like crackers. Bread. Bread. Bread.” The mother and her kids did not heed his words. It was at that time that Dennis took one of his sourdough baguettes, intended for his ducks, and beat Bugs, Daffy and Elmer to death over their heads until there was nary a crumb to be found. As Dennis was handcuffed and whisk away by the PD, he expressed remorse….to the birds. He was sorry there were no crumbs for them to eat. Dennis vowed to come later and feed his little flying friends. News at 11.”

      Lorraine says, “Anyone feeding ducks bread should have Ray pistol whipping their asses like my old boyfriend.”

  7. unca_chuck says:

    Great. Start paying me to be your therapist then, Dennis. Otherwise, lighten up. The point being, the team, us here, Alex Smith, or anyone else, owe you nothing. Your problems aren’t ours.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    That’s an excellent article, RTF. It warms my heart. Undead Al Davis has passed the torch to Jerry Jones as the owner most desired to go to the great beyond. Thank God he can’t get out of his own way.

  9. Winder says:

    I’m liking this Reid kid more and more all the time. He’s just the kind of flash this team needs and it seems like he has a good head on his shoulders. Now, should we get the Stanford TE or go to the meat and potatoes from Alabama? I dunno.

  10. Chico says:

    The draft starts at 3:30 today? Not an ideal start time for the working man.

  11. JDR says:

    Wow. Rodgers signs the richest contract in history, $40m next year alone. Might be time to extend Kaep another couple years before we have to set a new record on the guy.

  12. RTFirefly says:

    OK, I’m sold. Tyrann today.

    When I visited the LSU campus 5 ago, it was OK. Southern Girls, however, are incomparable. Forget California, and New Mexico isn’t on the map.
    However, LA is a strange state. No counties, just parishes.
    Smoke a joint, get kicked off the team.
    The Raiders won 3 SBs and the San Francisco Giants kicked butt for years with guys having buddies shoot needles into their butts.
    A guy that smokes weed and drops off the boards because of the NFL testing policy (that’s an oxymoron, of course, I write it in jest), but is the best corner in the whole draft is my kinda guy.
    Let’s see what happens. I’m rooting for this guy now.

  13. RTFirefly says:

    Wow, another Niner pick trade. I’m not even going to try to keep up with it today

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Dennis must be speeding toward the ground. This trade sent him off the ledge.

  15. unca_chuck says:

    There goes Ertz . . .

  16. unca_chuck says:

    Ahhh. It was a 3rd rounder for next year.

  17. RTFirefly says:

    The over/under for New York Jets QBs on the roster after they pick poor Geno.
    7. I suppose David Garrard shouldn’t really count, so

  18. unca_chuck says:

    The Tenn Tits should suck next year anyway so that’ll be e decent pick in the 3rd.

  19. unca_chuck says:

    Keenan Allen? Or Jesse Williams?

  20. snarkk says:

    Ertz was there for the taking, and they traded down instead. Guess they didn’t want him, or guessed wrong that he’d be available later…

  21. unca_chuck says:


  22. RTFirefly says:

    It’s 6!!!
    Poor Geno!!!!!

  23. unca_chuck says:

    They make the Cowboys look smart.

    • RTFirefly says:

      “Just sit watch and learn” – ESPN.
      You see why I follow the Jets.
      Geno, your contract will be up eventually. Don’t give up.

  24. snarkk says:

    Jets take Gino Smith.
    The Jets are run by morons…

  25. unca_chuck says:

    I guess this means Tim Tebow will be the new right guard.

  26. unca_chuck says:

    Near lock we take Jesse Williams.

  27. unca_chuck says:

    I’m out again.

  28. Grumpy Guy says:

    It’s the Tank!

  29. JDR says:

    They must not see much in the way of TE’s so far. Or they have grand plans for the WR corps.

  30. Grumpy Guy says:

    Some schmoe once said, on offense, you can scheme… but for defense, you need players. Some old white-haired SOB.

  31. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Now see….I’m a lot of things, chief among them is being brutally honest. Probably to a fault, but that’s who I am…As much as I hated our 1st rd horseshit, I LOVE taking Tank with our second pick. This is exactly like last year…hated Jenkins, but loved LaMichael James. I hate our trade up to get Reid, but I LOVE taking to get Tank with the 40th overall.

    He’s name is Tank. Tank! TANK. TANK! Love me some Tank. I should, spent my fair share of time in the “Drunk” variety.

  32. NoFear49er says:

    Moved up again. For all the talk about BPA it looks like Baalke is going after needs and has his targets’ availability figured out. Hard to complain, yet.

  33. RTFirefly says:

    Now the Niners again with #55, Vance McDonald Rice TE.
    His name starts with Mc. Gotta love him.

  34. snarkk says:

    Well, they got their TE. Don’t know jack about him. Vid looks like the guy has some speed. Hands? HellifIknow…

  35. RTFirefly says:

    Now a corner? You know who I want now.
    A NT?
    The shadow knows…

  36. Del Mar Dennis says:

    I was comment #49….Cooooop!!! Earl was spiking his TD catch right at me as I sat, stood actually at that time, in the end zone of SB XVI. That SI cover shot was the exact same angle I had on the action. I was only 15 yrs old then. WTF happened in between now and then? I’m taking a mulligan…

  37. Chico says:

    Seacocks just took a RB. . They didn’t need a RB.. Haha!

  38. snarkk says:

    Niner draft is already solid. They got the safety, DLman and TE that they needed. And managed to pickup more picks including a 3rd next year. Baalke is getting it done…

  39. JDR says:

    Honey Badger to ‘Zona. Not that I’d pull for a rival, but I hope the kid gets it together and makes a career for himself.

  40. RTFirefly says:

    Honey Badger went to the Cards.

    Hey, in New Mexico I can’t easily send a birthday present to a guy on the Peninsula. I have a feeling it might be his last.
    Willie Howard Mays
    May 6.
    That’s the next stop on Bay Area Sports and it will be ignored by the media because of Willie’s age and failing health.
    “Say Hey!”
    Let’s shower him with little gifts. He has money, he doesn’t need that.
    Just to let him know some of us watched him play at Candlestick, and have never forgotten.
    (I thought I’d put this non sequitur in before I got sidetracked again. When I have to show ID here in NM, I sometimes accidentally pull out Willie’s card.)
    OK back to the NFL draft.

    • JDR says:

      How about pushing to get his Godson into the Hall of Fame? The best way to do it is to expose the self-righteous sportswriters and force them to admit they have already voted a steroid user into the HOF. Thomas Boswelll knows of one, make them out the guy and explain why his induction was so much different than Bonds or McGwire.

      • RTFirefly says:

        Willie was a clean player, and a good man who came to the door to give away Halloween candy many years after his playing days were over.
        His Godson? A friend pitched against him in Senior League, and even then Barry was great. He didn’t need the droids.
        Bobby was a bigtime womanizer, alcoholic, and generally pain in the butt to every team that ever had him. Ever consider that Willie may have tried to steer Barry away from the life he chose?
        Willie Howard Mays was never like that as a player or a person.
        Prove me wrong and I’ll recant.

      • RTFirefly says:

        Of course I’ve deified Willie. It’s his birthday coming up!
        OK NFL draft review. Whew, where’e my NT?

      • JDR says:

        Willie used greenies, stole signs and, had they been available, would have taken drugs that would have extended his career and made him better. Ted Williams said all the same things as Bonds and worse (he refused to acknowledge the fans after the first time they booed him). Barry got scapegoated for being better than everyone else at a time when everyone was only realizing what players had been dong to get better for the last 20-30 years. Even Hank Aaron has been implicated, but the writers of this generation will never acknowledge it because it would mean acknowledging that they compromised their own morals to further their careers.

      • RTFirefly says:

        Not arguing, really. Ted Williams had 20-10 eyesight which made him a Combat Ace both in WWII and Korea.
        I’ve visited some of the ballfields where Willie learned how to play. They weren’t taking greenies then.
        C’mon, Willie is not perfect (I’ll write about Joe M and Dwight C in Los Gatos sometime, if I knew who those guys were).
        Not that I approve, but you just told me the Easter Bunny died. It’ll take awhile.

      • RTFirefly says:

        I really like the Easter Bunny. No insult intended, your points were valid, right on target.

  41. snarkk says:

    Hard to believe Keenan Allen still available in the mid third round. I’ve seen this kid play at Memorial Stadium around half a dozen times. He is a man. He can play. There must be some dirt on him out there. Whoever takes him will get a player at very good value…

    • snarkk says:

      Well, he just went to the Chargers at the 76th pick. Rivers can deliver to him, hopefully. The Chargers got a good player, wish the Niners had got him…

    • Chico says:

      Even on the Cal boards, they’re saying he didn’t interview well at all.. A ‘me I me I’ guy.. Good for the Chargers, they got a good one. The only downside is lack of speed, but possession? He’s the man.

      • snarkk says:

        Trust me, he’s fast enough. He caught a lot of balls even though the QB, his half brother, was barely qualified to be a Div II QB…

      • Chico says:

        I saw him get caught from behind many times.. Fast enough, but not a burner.

        How are you liking the Maynard highlights? Every time a defensive player from the Pac 12 (or Ohio State) gets his highlights on ESPN, it’s Maynard hitting the dirt.. Embarrassing.

      • snarkk says:

        He’s not a burner, but he’ll catch it when it’s near, and he can run routes. Manningham,+,. and bigger. Anyway, we didn’t get him, and I still think we need another WR. Maynard was a joke as a QB except against poor competition. Guy couldn’t read coverage. It was a package deal for Tedford to take Maynard to get Allen….

      • Chico says:

        Yep.. And Tedford bought it hook-line-sinker.. Good riddance to Tedford.. I remember you calling for his head LONG before others were. You were right. He lost the team.

        Stoked on Dykes.

      • snarkk says:

        Dykes better work out, because he’s a real good ‘ol boy, which is WAY out of the ordinary for Cal. If he spits the bit after 3 years, he’ll be gone right after Barbour. She’s hooked her future to a Bubba type to fill that stadium and sell all the PCLs, so he needs to deliver an offense and the goods…

  42. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, he ain’t; the usual Mike White ethereal thinker type, that;s for sure.
