In The “For What It’s Worth” Category

Far be it from me to paint flowery pictures about the new-found awewsomeness of our team these days,  but it isn’t a stretch to think that we at least have a better future than we did 3 months ago. Anyhow, here’s the take of one of the 49ers rivals in the NFC West. Specifically Seattle GM and would-be Duke of Hazzard, John Schneider.

Sure, this and $5.00 will get you a grande half-decaf soy vanilla soy latte with lowfat milk, but since free agency doesn’t start until THURSDAY AT 1:00 PM, there isn’t much to report on now.

    chuck- (from last thread in regards to J. Allen) From what I have read they are saying that Allen is the proto-type 3-4 nose tackle. Don’t know if the 4-3 would suit him. I do like a few of the DB’s in this draft and wouldn’t mind taking one but not with the second pick. I would love to move back and get Fourtenne(sp) but not sure how he would fit the scheme either since he’s a power runner. Torrey Smith has been released and he was what I thought we liked in a WR. So I guess I don’t know squat.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    He’s coming in as a DE, Winder. In fact, he played some OLB in college. He isn’t near big enough to go inside and be a nose tackle. He’s listed at 291. If they do go after him then I’d think Buckner would move inside.

    Torrey Smith was a mirage. Hard to stay engaged when there’s nothing coming your way. Like Ginn before him, he was in an offense that rarely went deep and was vastly underused.

    Maybe it’s this guy.

    Montravius Adams, NT, Auburn

    The line mate of Myles Garrett, Daeshon Hall is no slouch himself.
    6’5″/266 ran a 4.76/40 with 1.67 Split
    He wouldn’t be a bad addition in the right slot for us.
    Still going through the DL/LB numbers but, there are quite a few legit pieces to shop for next month.
    Haven’t even scratched the DBs yet. Plenty of options there too.

    Bye Raiders!

    • Winder says:

      They will thrive in Vegas and with all the junkit flights Oakland/LA fans can hop over to watch the games.

  6. Nipper says:

    How times change. Instead of hopping into a car to see a game one has to hop a plane. Basically the NFL just tells the average fan to bleep yourselves. I guess the Oakland fans can still tailgate in the parking lot in Oakland with their TVs. Perhaps Davis can rig a big screen out there. Naw that would be too costly for him. His attitude: I got mine ……BLEEP YOU!

  7. unca_chuck says:

    That’s a tenuous deal at best, Nip. Don’t be too surprised to see that one fall through as well.

    • Nipper says:

      I understand it…….Davis is sick of the City of Oakland and the Country jerking him around. He wants a stadium and yes it depends on an owner’s vote from the NFL. He knows he has to move somewhere and Las Vegas is the latest flavor of the month. If he’s got the financing and the votes he’s gone baby! As for the Oakland fans it’s adios baby!

  8. unca_chuck says:

    Actually, Winder, I think it will be a colossal failure if they move. Ticket prices are bad enough in a new stadium. Throw in airfare and a hotel room and you don’t have a lot of fans making the games. It’ll be just another attraction among the tons of shit to do in Vegas.

    • Winder says:

      Prolly so for the everyday fan. But, for the corporations I am sure there are creative tax write-off to be had. Hell, they priced me out 30 years ago.

      • unca_chuck says:

        Shit, I got 35 yard line seats last year for $80.00. Course we sucked balls . . . but even in the decent days of 2012 tickets weren’t that bad. Course (again) that was the Stick. . .

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Word on the street is that we are interested in Ram WR and soon-to-be free agent Kenny Britt.

    He of the 1,002 yard season last year.

    6’3″ 215 lb. Nice size.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    If anything, it’s nice to see this new staff actively looking at impact skill players.

  11. Irish Kevin says:

    I love mock drafts one has the Niners choosing The Pick: RB Leonard Fournette, LSU

  12. Nipper says:

    Skeebers seems excited or as excited as he ever gets about acquiring new players. Reading his intro on his blog is a hoot.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Antoine Bethea was just cut. Giving creedence to the thought that Jimmie Ward is moving to safety.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    We have some flotsam that needs to be jettisoned.

  15. 12th Man says:

    kerley went on to admit that players got comfortable with losing last season and he believes that will change with new head coach Kyle Shanahan.

    That’s a quote from newly signed WR Kerley, damning stuff and lends credence to my thought about players dogging it later part of last year.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Yeah,that sounds right. Shanahan is by all accounts a fairly hard-ass guy.

      And if anything is an indictment of bringing Kappy back, it’s the fact that losing didn’t seem to matter. Not that he was the only one at fault, but he didn’t seem engaged with trying to fix things.

      I mean the kneel? BFD. We were a 2-14 team if Kappy stands up.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    And, because this is the next song on the album . . .

  17. Lurker John says:

    The Seahawks are always buttering up the Niners, usually right before they mop the floor with them. As always, let’s hope this new regime not only gets the team where we all want them to be, but includes bitch-slapping the Shehawks on a regular basis. I’m sick of those fuckers.

  18. unca chuck says:

    The Seahawks are an afterthought in the grand scheme. They are on a downward trend. We have at least one season if not 2 to get back to relevancy.
