Eric Wright is Mr. Wrong, and the Fresh New Season

Christ, talk about blowing your chance. Eric Wright’s failed physical costs him a pretty penny to say the least. He looks at losing out on his $7.15 mill deal and signing a league-minimum one year $710,000 deal. Ouch. The speculation is that the Niners didn’t know about the recent DUI arrest in El Lay on the 10th, and just said pfffffffffft, do not pass go, do not collect $200.00. Either way, the guy is being pretty stupid. Either way, this seems to be the year of being stupid in the NFL.

Last year was the thrill of Peyton Manning’s free-agent flirtings with NFL suitors. The Andrew Luck / RG III stories, the never ending saga of Tim Tebow and his signing by the Jets, and various other stories to keep the wolves, uh press, at bay. We had our own Alex Smith saga still in full swing, and this was seen as his full blown charge to the Super Bowl.

This year? Murder, aggravated mayhem, DUIs up the wazoo, and in general, a big black eye (and stitches to the head) for Roger Goodell and his vast and unholy empire. He’s been strangely mum during all these legal snafoos, but he is of the same mind as the fans. It’s offseason! This doesn’t count!! The Niners had Ahmad Brooks trying to rearrange Lamar Divens’ head, and Divens trying to extort a cool mill from Brooks for his troubles, and nearly signing a recently busted Eric Wright. Aldon Smith has stayed out ot trouble this year. This can be seen as a plus.  And the fans don’t give two shits about it anyway. For the most part the fans are ‘who cares?’ in the overall scheme of who did what to whom (murder excepted, I think), and just want the season to start.

Frankly (Gorely), so do I. Here’s to the squeaky clean start to the 2013 season. One rife with possibilities. The 49ers are poised to make another Super Bowl run. Peyton Manning will try to keep his head attached to his body one more year, the Packers are trying to overcome their recent playoff failings, and the usual drama around the Chokeland Traitors will continue it’s death spiral as Prince Valiant tries and fails to channel his father for some meaningful direction to the team as they search once again for a home. New England has another gasp as they try to wring one more Super Bowl out of Tom Brady. Pittsburgh and the Ravens renew their rivalry as Pitts looks to stave off their imminent decline into mediocrity. The Jets and Cowboys resume their laughable offseasons, hoping they don’t turn into laughable seasons. Sanchez and Romo look to be highly scrutinized once again as their recent failings haven’t led to the kinds of coaching changes that usually happen around this sort of foul play. Jason Garrett and Rex Ryan both share the unblinking spotlight as their seasons are already teetering on the edge of doom.

Oh yeah, Denver star and erstwhile defensive stud Von Miller was suspended for 4 games for suspected PED use. He’s appealing the suspension. The new season has already lost a little squeaky cleanness.

    Ryan Braun won’t be doing anything the rest of the year, maybe he could play corner for the Niners.

  2. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Chuck, if you actually think Wright “failed his physical,” maybe you should take a vacation on that oceanfront property on the moon you’re always trying to sell.

    And, speaking of tangentally important things, Ryan Braun, Arron Rodgers’ bromance interest, was suspended for the rest of the season due to PED use, and his association with the Biogenetics lab. What a tool. He screams his innocence last year after beating the test on a technicality and continued to do so ad nauseum.

    “As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect. I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions. This situation has taken a toll on me and my entire family, and it is has been a distraction to my teammates and the Brewers organization. I am very grateful for the support I have received from players, ownership and the fans in Milwaukee and around the country. Finally, I wish to apologize to anyone I may have disappointed  all of the baseball fans especially those in Milwaukee, the great Brewers organization, and my teammates. I am glad to have this matter behind me once and for all, and I cannot wait to get back to the game I love.”

    Utter bullshit. When you tested positive last year and didn’t come clean, you CONTINUED to use PEDs and harassed anyone who claimed you weren’t as clean as you pretended to be. Glad ol’ Bud suspended him for nmore than the 50 games a first positive usually costs.

    Chuck stop stealing my shit OK!

  5. ninerdog says:

    This past National Football League season could have been featured as one of “The Hangover” movies.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Too funny, 12th . . . ! Yeah, this has been a brutal preseason, and it has barely started,’dog.

  7. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, I’m out of there.

    • 12th man says:

      I like his blog, the guys are decent and some good football knowledge over there. Too bad one asshole makes a mess of it. I figure he must be his brother in law or something.
      It’s a double edged sword for a blog. On the one hand he posts the most even if it’s mostly regurgitated stuff and keeps the blog rolling but I think he stops a lot of others from posting because who needs the bullshit all the time?

      • NJ49er says:

        It’s all about talking 9er football for me.
        Don’t have time to waste on petty BS.
        Take the high road and don’t let it alter who you are.

        I think it takes more energy to stress out over nonsense than it does to talk about our Team.
        That’s my 2 cents worth.

      • NJ49er says:

        It’s all opinions and perception when you talk Sports.
        That’s why it gets whipped into a frenzy with some.
        No reason to make it personal though, nobody wins that debate.

  8. NJ49er says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Trent gives Wright another opportunity down the road, if he’s on the street for any length of time.

    Might just have been a safe move until the recent DUI information is digested and processed?
    I agree with the premise that we may not have been aware of it prior to making the Trade deal.

    Either way, a very big RED FLAG, which doesn’t fit the MO of this Roster.

    I suspect Brooks will have some sort of in house punishment doled out as well.
    Not something that I expect we’ll necessarily hear about, unless the Czar in NYC makes it an issue.

  9. NJ49er says:

    I just rewatched the SB Replay and, I still wonder what in the world our Secondary was keying on in some of those botched assignments?
    Carlos and Culliver especially.
    Our Safeties got sucked into some Black Holes too.

    It does make it clear that we had some major breakdowns back there on the Big Stage.
    You can bet every Team in the League will be stacking receivers until we figure out what the eff to do.

    Now you can see the reason for Dahl too.
    We may not be able to afford exposing Reid to the NFC Teams early on, unless of course, the kid lights it up over the next 2 months.

    Well, here’s to having some meaningful football to talk about again, as we embark on yet another attempt at NFC Supremacy.

  10. NJ49er says:

    What does still tick me of to no end after watching the SB Replay is the audio from the players and Coaches clearly acknowledging the lack of conditioning the Ravens had compared to our own.

    And when you have the younger OL and an absent Ngata, why Roman and Harbaugh weren’t running at them more.
    Yeh, we were down big but, beating them down physically on the ground could have gotten better results.
    Especially after the Ray Rice fumble when we only recouped 3 points after a very short series of pass attempts.

    Oh well, time to regroup and, make the necessary improvements.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Well, yeah. The pisser was really the delay of game down on the goal line. Kappy said they had to ditch the series of pays they had set up to score down there.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    NJ, those problems were apparent all through the playoffs, and at various times during the season (re: NE). It is why I’m not too sad to see Goldson go. He was constantly beaten by double moves, and allowed guys to get behind him with regularity. Rogers seemed to have lost a step, but having little support from the FS was a big part of the problem on deep balls. Culliver had a good year, but just happened to play his worst game of the year on the biggest stage.

    As far as the other blog goes, yeah, I let myself get sucked into Bullitt’s web of bullshit. I’ve gotten better with other folks, but, I don’t know, I’ll just ignore his shit. Hard as that is to do sometimes.

    • NoFear49er says:

      Yeah, bullit’s bullshit, pretty hard to take. Almost as bad as you trying to drag me into your petty squabbles with him.

      Hard to say who’s the bigger asshole between the two of you. I guess you’d win out. You’ve been working at it longer. Either way, your whining complaints are pretty funny. It’s like you’re hollering at yourself in a mirror.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Funny hearing Harbaugh talk about hat-gate. He said ‘slow news cycle, no problem, I know where Kap’s heart is.’ or something like that.

    The Brooks deal will most likely be swept under the rug. Internal sanctions or some such nonsense. They’ll make him do some community service.

    Pick-up trash on 101
