RIP Bart Starr
It ain’t much, but the 49ers signed CB Dontae Johnson, waived LB Pita Taumoepenu and released OL Anthony Davis. Davis of c0urse has bailed, unbailed, and reunbailed these past few years.
Johnson was decent enough at times, Pita was a PITA, and what can you say about A Davis? Release him and sign him to a minimum deal, and then toss him to the curb. Or trade him to some other sucker
Other than that, not much to report on.
Go Warriors ! ! !
Glad the Niners let Davis go right away. They also gave Pita enough chances that he must not be a very good player, for their scheme anyway. Johnson is more than likely camp fodder at this point. So far the team has stayed out of the news which is a good thing. We are at the 100 day point for the season to start and it seems like everything has taken forever. Guess I need to get more of a life.
Don’t sweat it, Winder. The Niners are way more talented than they were three years ago. There is good reason to want to see if the promise turns into results. Hang tough! 102 days till Opening Day
Lol, Yeah I am gonna be just fine. The difference from this year to last is this year I actually expect for us to do good things. Can’t wait.
Hey, with the Giants sucking hard, there’s little else. The Dubs will Dub, so there’s that, but it will be over soon enough. So we have a looong summer of the Bochy death watch.
Johnson likely sticks. Mainly for familiarity’s sake.
I don’t think he’s terrible. It’s just that all these guys were forced to cover for 6+ seconds. An impossibility in today’s NFL what with all the holding and illegal contact calls.
It’s sad to watch what’s going on with the Gmen. It’s time for a complete overhaul and Bochy is on his final grandstand so maybe at this point it just as well to let him finish out the year. He’s a HOFer.
From MM today:
practice note: Rookie punter Mitch Wishnowsky went 6-for-6 on plus-50 punts inside the 10-yard line, including two that were downed inside the 3-yard line.
Your 4th round pick in action
Worst TD celebration of the day: Jordan Matthews, who after catching a pass in the end zone from Jimmy Garoppolo, went to throw the ball against the fence and missed, throwing it instead into the players parking lot where it hit a car. Catcalls from defensive players ensued.
How funny, good to see the D get their clown on.
General O impression from today?
Great – Deebo, Coleman
Good – Pettis who dropped a TD to drop from great
Fine – Jimmy G., no problems
Not good – Mullens, whose passes were defensed and nearly picked off far too often
At this point I just don’t want injuries.
LOL. Good Stuff
To boldly steal from the WZ:
Wish’s hangtime today was 4.8 seconds.
For comparison, an average hangtime of 4.55 usually puts you top 3 in the NFL. For a single punt, the longest each season tends to be around 5.5.
What is the WZ?
Huh. Just wondering when Skeebers blog gets an endorsement from Fox News.
The whole poor starving artist as right wing sycophant is pretty funny.
Dray for the win!
I didn’t like that the Warriors had so much time off. They just might get beat this time.
Naah.I don;t think so. The Warriors played pretty flat. They may lose both these games and still come out on top. The pressure will be on of they come home down 2 though.
All they really need to do is take one of these first 2 and they’ll be in good shape.
So much for my long, detailed, brilliant take on the Raptors series. My rural internet connection seems to have eaten it. Not WP this time. Ach so. Little bad weather and the internet goes to hell. Sometimes. Sometimes not.
Sorry, man. Took a look for it, but nothing in the filters. Except our local troll boy.
Nah, it was my crappy internet in this little town during a T-storm. Nothing new. One of the prices to pay for walking distance to all the stores and the post office, library, and not a single traffic light in town. Oh the misery
Barring injuries of course. Damn. Half the team went down tonight.
KD will be back and the train will roll along at home.
If KD leaves we’ll be able to resign Klay AND get Kawhi, who is also a FA. How’s that?
Crazy thought. i like the way you think.
What’s funny though is KD catches a world of shit for signing with the Warriors, but Kawhi get zero shit for tanking an entire season for the Spurs.
The Giants picked an outfielder at #10 Hunter Bishop from AZ state. He plays center. I sure hope he pans out.
6′ 5″ – 210. Going the Aaron Judge route.
This is Farhan’s first draft, so there’s a lot riding on this. We won’t know of course for a couple-three years.
Bishop can play all 3 outfield positions but maybe a better fit on a corner LF are RF. One thing the kid can motor for a 6’5 210, they say he runs a 6.50 60 yard dash.
I like the looks of both our 1st day picks. We need so much help just about everywhere that some potential new blood is kinda exciting.
Both are lefties. That usually doesn’t bode well for hitters in our park. Unless you are Barry.
They must have moving the fences in on their to-do list.
