The 49ers wasted little time (hello Michael Crabtree) in signing their draft picks, minus Arik Amsted. he apparently has some academic issues and must wait until the end of his last quarter at Oregon. Which happens to be early June. Armsted can attend the rookie mini-camp but must return for his finals week June 8-12. The Niner mandatory mini-camp runs from June 9-11, so there’s a conflict. I have no way of knowing Amsted’s finals schedule, so maybe he’s done on the 10 and can make some of it, but they can sign him on Friday when he shows up for the rookie camp.
Other than that, no news in Ninerland. Although I did add a new feature. I call it the Skeebers Score board. I’m tracking how many times Akeebers posts bashing the front office, how many times the ‘apologists’ are mentioned, and how many times the phrase ‘escaped goats’ pops up. Enjoy.
That’s a good sign, getting everyone in the fold early. I can’t imagine the joy those guys must feel at being 49ers. What a rush. I still think we have some cards up our sleeves and we will pick up some more players. But, if we don’t I still think this years camp is gonna be one of the best and that we will compete in our division and the NFC as a whole.
In Skeeber’s land, optimism is not a virtue.
Yeh 12th, I’m offended dude.
I’ll see about changing my avatar to ‘Richard Cranium from NJ’ 😀
Winder the Rookie Cap policy all but eliminates holdouts now.
Each slot carries Contract values now.
Word has it Armstead will sign this weekend, though he’s unable to begin practicing until Oregon completes it’s Commencements in early June.
Tell that to Crabs. He held out cuz he thought the raiders should have picked him.
Now he gets to play for them.
On the CHEAP.
Yeah, strange how the circle closes sometimes.
Is this kid Heston for real? I sure hope so. The youngsters are bringing home the bacon, gotta love it.
New kids add interest.
Yeah, 2 hit complete game? And maybe Duffy gets a few more starts after his 5 RBIs last night.
McDeepee should chill on the bench for a while.
Duffy will get a lot of playing time with that kind of hitting.
He’s been knighted. It’s Sir Spitblood from Geneoushire.
If by knighted you mean sitting in the middle of a circle jerk, then yeah.
Hard to talk about anything when nothing’s going on. On one hand though I am feeling better and better about our draft, I think we get immediate help from a few of those guys Armstead included.
Yeah, sometimes quiet is a good thing though. Just look at last year. This is when the shit started unravelling. New thread is up.
