Quarterback Controversy?

A little break in the injury parade. Let’s talk quarterbacks. Has JImmy G played his last down as a 49er? It very well may come to be. Is there a quarterback controversy? I don’t think so. I also don’t think Shanahan wants Jimmy G. as his quarterback going forward. Funny to hear the pundits out there saying we need to sign a stop-gap QB like Kurt Cousins or Matty Ice. Fuck that. We HAVE Nick Mullens. He’s fine as our stop-gap guy. We need to draft a QB and ride the big dick next year.

Why? Whoever we would get will garner big money and cap space if not draft picks/players (think Ryan) if it is a trade. Winston? No. Trubscuit? Hard no. Cousins? Meh. Dalton? Pass. The one guy who could be intriguing is Dak Prescott. He can play at a very high level and checks a lot of the boxes for the mobile big-armed quarterbacks. The problem of course would be $$$. He’s looking for a lifetime deal.

So, we need to draft someone. Since we are out of the Trevor Lawrence/Justin Fields sweepstakes, we may not even get a shot at Trey Lance out of North Dakota State. I would love to see him in a Niner uniform, but he’s movin’ on up to the top side of the draft. I’m thinking we end up somewhere in the 13-16 range so those guys will be gone. Unless we trade up. To do that we would need to get more picks for payers somehow.

No idea how this will work out, but I seriously don’t see us getting a stopgap for Jimmy.

I wish he was . . .

. . . but he ain’t.

    And now since the 49ers don’t have enough injuries it’s just been confirmed that Kendrick Bourne has tested positive for COVID with their scarce WR Corp and the 49ers have shutdown they’re practice facilities as of right now the game is still to be played but that could change against the Packers..

    • Winder says:

      Just when you think it can’t get much worse it does. It looks like we are gonna dump some players. Starting with Pettis and Jullian Taylor. That is too fucking bad since we had a lot invested with both those guys. I believe we have to keep all the draft picks we can and I don’t think we win another game this year.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    I’m hoping we do lose all our games and have a shot at Lance. I don’t think it plays out that way.

    • Winder says:

      I have never hoped we loose a game but at this point I really don’t care. It might just be beneficial if we do lose out. For the rest of the year I am gonna be a talent evaluator.

  3. unca_chuck says:

    Not gonna root against them, but God, how fast we fell.

    Still and all I wouldn’t be surprised to see us win tomorrow, even with Bourne on the COVID list.

    The fun never stops.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck it. Aiyuk and Trent Williams are out as they were in close contact with Bourne.

      Chuck..You can cue up “Wipeout” by The Ventures
      There 2 WR’s available now to start are Trent Taylor and Richie James which for sure brings little fear to the Packers secondary..
      They could and should activate former Bears Kevin White from the practice squad wtf they have nothing to lose in this blowout..

    I am going to file multiple LAWSUITS demanding that none of the comments on this blog ever get counted again. TREMENDOUS BLAHGRESS!

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, this is the shit icing on the broken glass cake.

    Like I said, just forfeit the fucking games. Can we get Pettis back? Jerry could prolly still catch a few.

  7. unca_chuck says:

    Saw these guys at the Great Amerian Music Hall back in the early 80s. Fun show,

    Fuck 2020.

    “Now starting at wide receiver for the 49ers, Pedro, the swing shift janitor!!!”

    ’21 Draft roster evaluation begins –
    Here’s the mystery WR Group left for TNF


    My answer. Hand off and punt a lot.
    See what Hasty can do to a poor GB run Defense for as long as we can.

  10. NJ49er says:

    This pretty sums up the chaos of 2020 in the NFL –

    And so, among others, the 49ers won’t have their top three receivers, their top tight end, their top tailbacks, their top quarterback, and their starting left tackle, among others on Thursday night against the Packers.

    Why is the game proceeding, you ask? The league’s main focus is getting the games played. Even if it would be more “fair” to the 49ers to bump the game to Monday or Tuesday, the situation could get worse by then. Starting with the Buccaneers-Raiders game from Week Seven, the league began to convey a clear priority and preference to get the games played, even if one team will be woefully unprepared for it.
