Oh.My.GGGGODDDDD!!!!!!! Can’t tell you how fucked up this all seems. The blathering will stop soon. The only good news on my side was getting rid of cable so I didn’t have to see Mel Kiper’s fucking jet-black helmet head obliterating my consciousness.
Still, the pundits-o’plenty are out in force touting, discounting, prevaricating, dithering, and yammering non-stop about our pick. It seems to be the most interesting one since it is pretty much set in concrete that
The Jags take Lawrence and the Jets take Wilson. This is written on high on whatever it is they write it on in Cleveland, but that leaves us with the trifecta of you know whos.
Irish posted an interesting column from the Athletic that pretty much gave away the secret that any QB with a pulse and a completion percentage over 65% garners overenthusiastic love and accolades from scouts/owners/coaches/GMs that this is the next coming of Joe Montana. Well, nix that, his arm wasn’t big enough. Hence him being a 3rd round pick.
Which leads me to the other albatross in the room that many many of these high QB picks flame out spectacularly. Jared Goff being the latest among the Vince Youngs, Tim Couches, Mitchell Trubiscuits, Carson Wentzes, and Todd Marinovitches.
The NFL landscape is littered with 1st round casualties among the needles in the haystack like Aaron Rodgers (barely a 1st rounder), Patrick Mahomes, Big Ben, Lamar Jackson, Andrew Luck, and Peyton Manning.
So, where does that leave us? Fuck if I know. The consensus is that Jones was the guy they fell in love with from the get-go, but that Trey Lance has narrowed the gap considerably. Fields isn’t even in the discussion. Even so far as to Lance lead the handicappers who bet on this kind of shit. Normally I would hold that in some kind of esteem, but I’m still more that afraid that Shanny set his mind to Jones on March 26th, and hasn’t budged an inch.
I fear a gigantic outburst of angst from the Faithful come that 3rd pick. Haven’t even considered what we do at our 2nd pick. CB/OL, I’d think. I may be too drunk to care by then.
Shock the World at 3.
Draft Pitts 😀
A lot worse picks NJ..
Yeah just run the ball all game with Kittle&Pitts
It would keep Jimmy G healthy!
But that’s just not going to happen,
I’m doing my best Kevin Costner (Sonny) Draft Day moment and despite all the hype and haters the guy who’s going to prove them all wrong will be with my green piece of folded paper that says:Justin Fields No Matter What.. Kyle won’t screw this up Jones was always just smoke and hype,No to Bo Mac Jones Callahan
Niners have a top 10 OL , good run game,great young receivers with YAC abilities, a top 3 TE now with Kittle ( maybe higher if he stays healthy right along Kelce and Waller) they just need the dynamic all purpose QB and ready now with more college starts then Jones and Lance. Lance would be the second choice but he’s just to green when there ready to win it all now.. Fields is also the highest according to PPF rated QB on second read throws with a minimum of 60 attempts at 90.6 Wilson2nd 90.4 Lance 3rd 87.4 Lawrence 7th and Jones 9th..
On KNBR Brent Jones is picking Lance
The blathering will never stop on this assisted living version of a forty whiners blog.
Aaron WANTS to come here. We almost traded for him. Today.
Again, I’ve yet to see a decent explanation as to how any kind of “smokescreen” would benefit the 49ers. Assuming Lawrence goes to the Jags and Wilson goes to the Jets, as close to locks as you can get in this situations, the Niners will have their pick of the remaining QB’s in the draft, whomever that may be. So why a smokescreen?
Why leak that they want Jones, then take Fields or Lance? How could that possibly benefit them? Answer: it can’t. Brace yourself, Kat, for the very real possibility that in about one half hour Mac Jones will be the newest 49er.
LJ..There not taking Jones, they immediately become the laughing stock of the draft.In à agência where everyone’s looking for the next Patrick Mahomes, Jones won’t be that period!!
U have to draft a multi-dynamic QB and that’s either Fields are Lance.
We’ll see! LOL. This shit is crazy.
fuck, this stands to be a travesty. Watch them take Pitts and we trade for Rodgers.
Well, if they’re going to do it, they’d better hurry up.
They can do it with their pick. Throw in Jimmy G as well.
If we pick Jones, all it means is that the entire organization licks Shanny’s balls. Not a good thing. It’s what got his dad in trouble.
FFS, what the hell is taking Jacksonville so long?
I’m sure the NFL said “take your time” Sell more shit, run more ads.
Probably exactly it.
Why does anyone listen to Mel Kiper? The guys acts and talks like he’s a football expert. To hear him talk, you’d think he’d been an NFL coach for years.
He’s a douch nozzle of the highest order. I don’t watch ESPN for that fact.
That was funny as hell! And so true about clown 🤡 Kiper!! Who in the hell is Mel Kiper? He’s never ever put on a jockstrap , and he has less knowledge then my postman! Great stuff!!
Pick 1 – Shocking – Trevor Lawrence
They sure milked that one.
That video is hilarious. Tore ol’ Mel a new one.
Jets get the same treatment. Don;t see how they don’t take Zach WIlson.
Then again, they are a pretty stupid organization. Gonna see how they do with Saleh as their HC though. Hopefully they get their shit together a little.
Man, Wilson looks like a high schooler.
10 mins and we will know who the next QB will be a Niner. Everyone who writes or is on an SF radio station is saying it will be M Jones, but they all hope it is Lance
The fact that everyone from the entire 49ers organization to the millions of fans, writers, and broadcasters all want us to take Lance, and if he goes with Jone, he’s gonna regret it.
Pick 2 – Zach Wilson
Here we go, boys!
Oh boy.Here we go
Here we go
I have now moved away from the ledge
Boom or bust, fingers crossed its boom.
Wow, they went all in.
Fantastic. Now we can relax
Whooooooooooo boy. If Shanny is truly the quarterback whisperer, then we have a very bright future ahead of us.
The kid is raw, but supremely talented. I guess that means JG will be around another year. I’d think you want to ease Lance into the position.
I have no idea now. The team is fairly well-built to ease a guy into the role with our run game. If we can trsde jimmy for a 2 we are gonna do it.
Don;t know why the team played chicken with Jac Mones, but here we are!! Love it.
I am still crying alone in my basement.
Let’s see how far Jones falls now.
I think they smoke screened it because of Saleh. I am sure we didn’t want to let on how much we wanted lance. It could have turned the pick. I think the Jets took the biggest gamble.
I guess. I’m not really sold on that, but it could be. I have been on the Lance train since we announced the trade. Jones may fall to the Redskins at 19?
LJ… I can now smoke a cigar have several drinks and be excited instead of being on suicide watch!
Every team wanted the Niners to take Jones, now they will be scrambling to move up to 8-9 to get Fields.Jones Will probably go to the Patriots at 15 now if they want him..
You called it Kat! Enjoy that smoke and those drinks! Kyle now needs to work his magic and get this kid up to the level where he can lead the team to those championships we all want. GO NINERS!
I think the Jets were going with Wilson regardless. The smokescreen thing just doesn’t make sense. That’s the trap you can fall into when you listen to these “experts” who probably don’t know any more than the rest of us. Shanny would have to be a fool to show his hand, and who knows when he made up his mind on Lance. Maybe he’ll say later.
Anyway, I’m excited. The kid is an exciting talent. Let’s hope he pans out.
I wonder what it was about Fields that put teams off him, at least so far. He may still go top 10, which ain’t chopped liver.
Waddle, one of the guys Jones was throwing to last year.
Kyle chose Lance cause he is a raw talent, Kyle can mold him into the QB he wants him to be, just like Walsh did with Montana
I’m glad Rodgers didn’t come out to SF. Great QB, but 37? I’m glad they’re going young with Lance.
Sewell goes to the Lions at #8.
There are whispers around Fields that he isn’t dedicated enough, He’s more of a ‘last-in, first-out’ guy. No idea if that is true or not but that has been floated out there. Add the recent revelation that he’s got epilepsy, and it doesn’t take much to fall.
Fucking Rodgers was supposed to be the #1 pick and he went at 24 for no particular reason.
If Fields goes, I’d think Carolina or Denver.
Or not. Jycee Horn, CB to Carol.
Hadn’t heard the epilepsy thing. That could be legit, if he really does have it. Makes you wonder why he’d even play football with it.
He noted that he has it under control and hasn’t had a problem with itt, and many of his family members deal with it to no adverse effects, but it is a thing.
Wow. Denver is relegated to 3rd place in the AFC West for another year.
49ers quarterbacks have 83 turnovers under head coach Kyle Shanahan, tied for third most in the NFL since 2017, and including the playoffs Jimmy Garoppolo has the third-highest interception rate in the NFL over the past two seasons. One of Lance’s greatest strengths is his decision-making, and his running ability makes him a great fit for Shanahan’s zone-read attack. — Muench
Surtain’s a stud.
Fucking Bears traded up for Jones? !!! If they pick him they are lunatics. They UST got through the Trubiscuit era.
Fields to da Bears.
LJ..Pittsburgh Steelers had a HOF guard in Alan Faneca who played in the early 2000’s 13 years with epilepsy with no issues, just taking his meds everyday. So I don’t see a problem with Fields at all. But obviously these days a red flag for some..
Hell maybe the 49ers didn’t like Jones DUI his 1st year at Alabama when he was 19. Red flag for the underage boozer..
Yeah. I knew a guy when I was in high school who had epilepsy and it was pretty devastating for him. He’d have these grand mal seizures that would incapacitate him for quite a while. He would never be able to drive, but I also know there are varying degrees of the disease, meaning not everyone has it that bad, not to mention I’m sure treatment has come a long way. Hope it works out for him.
They say he is on meds and they control the seizures
Back then the meds were almost as debilitating as the disease itself. I’m sure Fields would not risk it if it wasn’t under control, I just hadn’t heard that he has the disease. The Bears are beyond due to his paydirt with a QB, so I really hope Fields is the guy. It’s good for the NFL when the Bears are relevant. Classic franchise.
Good for the Bears. Fields should be good for them.
Jones to the Patriots
Jones to the Pats. Wow. This is exactly why i didn’t want to trade up for him.
Yeah, Chuck, you pretty much nailed that one. I wasn’t so sure, but he probably went where he should have. Belichick will probably coach him up good. Jones seems like a good fit as a system QB. Good situation for him and more evidence that JG stays put.
I’m in just so happy that I can be off of suicide watch, now that they did the right choice with Trey Lance!
This kid is going to be special with all the exciting intangibles he will add.Yes he needs a lot more reps and experience, but Shanny and this coaching staff will bring that out of him and this team going forward is going to be a powerhouse in the NFL!!
B/R already graded out the pick as a solid A…
We got A’s for Solly Thomas and Reuben Foster. Turned out to be a resounding F.
That shit don’t mean shit.
yeah, that dickwad Prisco at cbs gave us a C-. I am ok with that since he’s a fucknut anyway. And, once again Kiper had it all wrong on our pick.
Local kid Najee Harris to the Steelers.Good for him.He’s in a great situation.
Yeah, the whole draft is a crapshoot. That said, go Trey Lance!
Don’t know if this will work, but here’s Lynch after the Lance pick:
Major risk. This is like when we signed Chip Kelly. Boom or bust. I hope we hit a HR and don’t strike out. Too much risk for 3 first round picks. I can’t see JG going anywhere this year.
That’s my take as well Berger.
If it works out it will be a dynasty building block.
One thing I like about it is their courage to swing for the fences.
I agree with them swinging for the fences but I absolutely hate the pick. He hasn’t even throw 400 passes in college and that was in the 2nd division. The best thing I can say is I am rooting for me to be wrong. I will be rooting for the kid.
No risk, no reward. I was hoping for Lance all along. You can’t teach size and speed.
I like the pick and the gamble we took. The FO definitely sees something in this guy to warrant all the draft capitol we spent. My rosy glasses are on.
New thread is up.
Kyle needs to emphasize pass protection, two reasons, keep JG healthy, and when they are ready to trade him he will have value
