Looks like the talking heads have run out of shit to post about our quarterback situation and are rehashing the oldies. Apparently there is ‘chatter among people in the league’ that the 49ers are interested in trading for Kirk Cousins. The ‘people in the league’ being the tackling dummies, apparently. What next? Nate Davis?
All this happened at the combine. You know, a month ago. Naturally, a huge story like this was sat on till now and is now a hot topic.
Mindless blather? Trial balloons floated out by the Whisper Machine inside 49er headquarters to gather info for Lance’s worth? Monkeys throwing darts at buzzwords? No fucking idea, but why in God’s name would we take on Cousins when we have TWO quarterbacks on rookie deals? Lance is far from proven to be a bust. He isn’t proven to be anything but snakebit by injuries at this point, but we aren’t gonna give Lance ‘a fresh start’ somewhere else without giving him a legit shot here.
Purdy is Purdy. Sure, he’s young and coming off a pretty significant injury, but we aren’t gonna throw down on a 34 year old QB with an abysmal playoff record just because some drunk team exec was talking to a potted plant.
Purdy already has more playoff wins than Cousins and Prescott to name a couple, and Purdy should be fine by October at the latest so, the hamster wheel of stupidity coming out of the national media is gonna spin like mad. I said the grist mill around the 49ers is gonna be a full-tilt-boogie and here we go.
I don’t know where some of these new sports outlets come from but most of em are total bullshit. Some of the stuff they are saying is so off-base that they must be republicans.
Heh heh!! Clickbait 100%
Full tilt, baby!! My older sister used to play the shit out of this.
There not trading Lance when they haven’t really seen the potential product from him.I think he can still be the QB this system needs over One Wonder overhyped Purdy.Just my opinion but their could be a long road ahead in Purdy’s recovery just like now of Hunter Bishop of SF Giants..
Yeah, Bishop has had nothing but problems hoping next year is different.
Dude didn’t miss a game in college, now he can’t find the field.
It’s long but I just had to put this one on. One of my first memories of Rock & Roll was Fat’s.
Very cool. My older sisters dragged me to see Fats Domino and Chuck Berry when I was in 8th grade (1974) at the venerable Circle Star Theater in San Carlos. Great stuff.
I really liked the Circle Star Theater it was a fun place.
And now the talking heads have us going after Aaron Rodgers should his deal fall apart with the Jets.
Been trying to keep up with all the QB discussions, but I gave up. Seems like just about every other team is mentioned in some kind of QB controversy, a real musical chairs kind of situation. I know no one here really cares, but it’s even fever-pitched in New England with stories of Bellichick (who should retire already) wanting to unload Mac Jones just because Jones didn’t do well in a completely fucked up offensive scheme last year. Will be interesting to see where all these QB finally are sitting once the music stops….
Yep NE is a mess right now. I don’t pay attention to much of the crap these sports hubs are putting out. Like chuck said above ‘total clickbait.’
Yeah, bizarre that Bellichick offered Jack Mones around. Didn’t get any offers worth a damn, I guess.
And of course there’s talk that we would trade Trey Lance for Jones. Because we are retarded apparently.
I don’t really understand why the Niners get mentioned in all this QB talk, what with Purdy and Lance in the wings. I guess there’s a chance Purdy’s rehab will take longer, and I guess there’s a chance Lance won’t work out, but those seem like slim chances. So yeah, no reason for Niners to be considering Jones… or anyone else, really, right? I still think Jones will be a good QB, NE has fucked around with him, but I also think so will Purdy and likely Lance too.
It’s all blather from the national media mostly. NE is in a weird place mainly because Belichick is the one shopping around Jones. He’s not spectacular but he;s not fucking up wildly either. Not sure why they think Frank Zappe would do more than Jones or if they somehow expect to sign Rodgers out fromunda the Jets?
This is why many NE fans are acknowledging that maybe it’s time for Bill B. to retire, he seems to have “lost the plot”. Last season was a joke, having a defensive coach calling the offensive plays, which of course caused Jones to speak out which of course pissed off Bellichick and which of course has turned the place into a circus. Weird thing is, Jones has a similar skill set as Brady, he could’ve fit into the scheme well, but they didn’t foster that. Anyway.. it will be interesting to see how all the QB stuff settles…
Aldon Smith gets a year in jail for a felony DUI from 2 years ago.
Oooops. What a waste of talent.
