Apparently we are in the running for Rams OLB Dante Fowler. This works for me. We need all the help we can get at LB and pass rush. Getting Fowler would pave the way for QWIlliams at #2. Sure, we are currently 4th in carrying around dead money, but that comes with the actions of one Trent Baalke, who was shitting in the sandbox for 10 years and signing shit players to long deals. Dumping a bunch of shit players gets one in this spot, and John Lynch isn’t completely rosy in this sense as we have (or will) jettisoned Pierre Garcon, the WR who waited on no one but the bench. But it could be worse, that’s for sure. Paraage the spreadsheet whiz has kept the damage manageable at least.
We are still among the top 8 or so teams with $66 – $70 mill available in cap space. It could be even more as they decide the fate of Arik Armstead, the unlikely guy to stay on the team and cash in on his $9 million option year, Jimmie Ward, the on-again and off-again CB FS SS who needs to stop breaking his arms, and Ronald Blair, the D lineman who has played himself into a bigger role and possibly a big raise.
These are the bigger FA decisions that are coming up, as we avoided dealing with Robbie Gould by franchising him (and thus pissing him off I’m sure) but we get one more year of his accuracy, and he gets one less shitty Chicago winter. His family? Sorry, start shovelling.
chuck- I expect to see Gould get a longer term contract in the near future. I know he has love and loyalty to the Bears but I also think he has love and loyalty with us at least I hope so.
Your new cover photo is a Candlestick Park sign from 2011? Hahahahahahahaha!
You don;t like my picture? Go suck a shotgun, assclown.
Beats creating news emails every 15 minutes to troll blogs. Pathetic. Didn’t know you were this petty, Skeebs.
Color me shocked.
More than surprised we picked up AA’s 5th year option at a cool $9 million. My thought was losing him cleared the way for Q Williams. This raises the possibility of Josh Allen being out 1st pick.
I thought AA was gone also but when you think we paid Ward something like 8 mil last year it really doesn’t sound too bad
You should pick up AA’s big book and start reading. Your posts and comments are getting less coherent by the hour
Huh. You created a new account for that? SAD! Keep ’em coming, skippy. Nothing like free entertainment.
Saw this guy more times than I can count. He ALWAYS put on a kick ass show. Kinda Stevie Ray Vaughan-ish before SRV. The Canadian Jeff Beck!
You’ve never been to a show in your life. We’re busy posting thoughtful football analysis while your blog has turned into romper room. I’ll keep on posting insightful football links while you keep on posting YouTube videos of musicians you’ve pretended to have seen.
Truly sad. Skeebs and his ilk are sad little lemmings. Funny how the trolling over there stopped.
Uh, yeah, because you’ve stopped trolling over there, Charlie. HYUK
Skkkeebs banned me, candy-ass. Because you an poor little NoFear need protecting,
Wow. Who knew Skeebers was so relentless? And I thought you were a Niner fan.
What a sad state of affairs that Niners Snorever has become nothing but a plethora of YouTube videos. Meanwhile, over at the intelligent blog, we’re actually talking football with smart conservatives.
Pathetic, Skeebs. Mom is calling you from the kitchen.
