Summer Time Football Blues

Hey, the Gigantes are kicking ass, so that is cool, and we beat the Dodgers last night. Even cooler. But football? 49ers football? The waiting is awful. Interminable. This team stands to be very well positioned for immediate success, and future success with the moves made so far. The biggest factor is of course injuries. But the team is stocked with a lot of talent, and we stand to be in the mix for a little while anyway.

I am worried about all the one-year deals, but that was a byproduct of the COVID season of 2020. We were able to keep some players we didn’t stand a chance to keep had we not gone through the weirdness. There will need to be a lot of decisions made come the end of this season, but that is the distant future. There’s a 17 game season to play. And yes, that sounds as odd as it is. The NFL should really go the college route and get rid of practice games entirely. Make it 18 games and call it done. But that’s me.

That, and expand the rosters. the game is so violent now that teams should be able to carry 3 QBs without having to shuttle guys between the taxi squad and the active roster. Shit, I don’t know. Little to discuss, and so much time.

Then again, we are only 54 days away from KICKOFF!!!!!

    Our division is so fucking crazy that who knows what’s gonna happen. The Rams took a big hit yesterday in losing their top RB. Should make their game a little more one dimensional. Fucking Seattle is the one that just might bite us in the ass this year. I think they got way better with some of the players they picked up. Anyway, all our division games are dogfights. Can’t wait.

    Wow. Torn achilles for Ackers. That’s rough. I think they were gonna be a throwing team anyway.

    49ers locked up All Pro LB Fred Warner to a 5 year 95 million contract.40.5 mil is guaranteed..
    Best in the game with his consistent play keeping the 49ers a top 10 defense.Great sign Let’s Go 49ers!

      Be interesting to see how they cleared the cap space and how much is not “injury” guaranteed.

      Great signing, best in the game right now at the position.

    Great news there. Warner is the real deal.

    In a similar vein, I wonder if Patrick Willis makes it to the Hall of Fame. He’s on the list, but he didn’t have the lengthy career that is usually necessary. But in his prime, he was the best LB in the league hands down.

    Someway, somehow, we need to strike some balance with the conditioning gods for a change.
    Excitement for the season is tempered by the reality of the dreaded injury bug that plagues this team.
    Fingers crossed, let’s get this shit together 😀
