Since we are in the dark days of football, and Ninerland is consumed with all things Deebo, here’s the latest from Deebo and his brother via Twitter.
(See my first response below)
What does it mean? Little to nothing, but it’s better than him ripping the team. Something he hasn’t done even through all this. This is kinda the trajectory I thought this would follow, but the saga isn’t over yet. Nor is the Jimmy G conundrum.
So, enjoy the ride, and let’s hope the Warriors home cooking is as biased at the Grizzlies was in their house. I thought the NFL was bad where it comes to officials stepping all over a game.
Never ceases to crack me up. The man was a legend. Saw him for the Toledo Window Box tour in Berkeley.
That was great.
And Deebo is now re-following the team on social media. This is going how I thought it would.
He’ll get his money and somehow Jimmy G will go away.
This is very cool. Reminiscent of the late great James Dewar. From the new Trower album.
I guess we will be hearing some news about Deebo soon. The Media really got involved with this and it seems they didn’t know anything about what was going on. I have never cared what money players make. It’s not my money. My opinion is usually about the organization be smart or stupid. Anyway Deebo makes us better so hopefully we can put this one to bed soon.
It may still be a few weeks, but the only thing I hang my hat on is the fact that Deebo never said anything negative about the team or his situation. Deebo cut his social media accounts, which in itself doesn’t mean a hell of a lot, but the pundits of course want to make it into something.
Was Deebo’s agent posturing for more money? Sure, could be. Was the team actively seeking deals for him? Sure, could be. In the end this is a business, but it seemed to me the prevailing sentiment from both sides was to pay Deebo. mainly, in my head, because this team has been looking for dynamic wide receivers since TO left.
So we have 4 comp picks next year. Two in the back of 3rd rd, back of 5th, and later in 6th or 7th.
So adding a draft pick is less important than avoiding cap hit on releasing him. One way is swapping Jimmy for darnold who is guaranteed 18 million so hit reduced by that. Trade to Seattle would be ideal, maybe Houston.
Also article today saying Seattle has given up any interest in Baker Mayfield. They did get drew Locke from Denver in the Wilson trade .
Drew Locke = 7 wins.
Those original Hawk unis were pretty sweet and Zorn was fun to watch. The new ones are good too, but not with those hideous neon green getups. They don’t wear ’em that often. Their regular unis are pretty clean.
I think it’s pretty clear at this point that Deebo is coming back, I just don’t like how the Niners slow-play everything. Just get him locked up and then move on to getting Bosa extended as well. I personally don’t believe the usage thing was a real factor. While it may not be Deebo’s ideal scenario, he embraced it enthusiastically last year and he was good at it. The guy is a football player and doesn’t shy away from any aspect of it. He makes that clear every time he steps on the field.
If Davis-Price pans out and Mitchell comes back strong, I suspect Shanahan will move away from using him as much that way, and maybe save it for select times in a game. The surprise factor would be higher in that case anyway.
Agree about our run game maybe we can escape the serious injury bug to our rb’s. When our run game works so does our passing game. Always high hopes this time of year.
The only aspect to our game that seems shakey is our Oline, and of course Trey has to show up.
Yeah. A lot riding on Banks panning out, not to mention McGlinchey’s status and whomever they plug in at the other guard spot. And Mack. Still no word on what he’s going to do. I actually feel pretty good about the draft they had. No we just have to wait and see how things shake out.
Yeah, it was pretty bothersome to me that Banks couldn’t crack the lineup, but hopefully it is all part of the learning process. Like all the random RBs, Shanny seems to be able to make non-descript linemen work out in the end.
