Shit, I don’t know. OTA’s have gone along swimmingly according to the interwebs. No serious injuries or problems yet. According to the scribes that get paid for this shit, Joshua Garnett has gotten himself into shape, and lost 25 lb to better play the zone blocking scheme the Niners are now running, and coach Shanny has nothing but praise for him. Great. We need all the line help we can get, and having our 1st round pick from 2016 be a contributor would be good, and it would be Baalke’s last hurrah. His last draft has netted 3 guys. Garnett Buckner, and Ronald Blair. Yet another underwhelming draft for him, but I digress as I digest. A few of the OTA standouts include:
- Richard Sherman, the Draymond Green of football, is providing to be a useful guy even if he isn’t participating in OTA’s. He’s coaching up the young secondary, and is providing his vast knowledge of the game, and the system he came up in (Selah’s), to his charges. Apparently he’s on schedule to play, but that is a long way away from being a reality. And he’s getting as jump on his coaching career.
- Fred Warner is proving to be a solid addition as he has already taken 1st team snaps at the Mike (Middle linebacker position, making all the defensive calls, and doing it right. Unlike Flounder, smart, fast, and athletic will get you far in life. Beyond that it looks like Foster will be suspended, so the faster they get Warner up to speed the better.
- Another guy looking good is Jerick McKinnon. Shanny has stated that he is what they hoped for, and more. based on the practices, they are lining up McKinnon everywhere, including WR plan to get the ball to him any and every way they can.
Hey, it’s early. These are the doldrums of the football season. Speaking of doldrums, check out Skeebers’ bog. It’ll get you in the mood for the noose. Hyuk!
Hey, the Dubs are poised on winning their 3rd championship in 4 years, the Giants are playing exciting baseball even as their line up is getting waylaid by injuries, and it looks to be a return to meaningful football in the Bay Area. These are good times.
