  1. As mediocre as Thomas has been (agree he needs to play mostly inside this year) he was pretty much ranked a top 3-5 player by a lot of people heading into that draft. Teams don't draft safeties at 3 overall. In the last 25+ years only two have gone top 5, both at 5, Eric Berry and Sean Taylor. As for Lattimore there was some concern at the time about hamstring issues IIRC. He fell outside of the top 10 and was great score for the Saints. Would I rather have either player today, absolutely, but I get why they drafted Thomas at 3. I doubt that was a Lynch only decision. Looking at drafts in hindsight is pretty worthless IMO anyway. Lynch gets crap for that pick but it was a group effort and a lame year to have the second (3rd) pick. There was one true stud and then the rest. It was supposed to be a "safe pick" at the time. Thomas also hasn't had the best situation thus far. He has been played out of position with poor coaching IMO then loses his sister to suicide heading into year 2. I think the book is still out on him. They have made a lot of moves that are easy to criticize, I do it all the time, but at the end of the day they built this roster from basically scratch. It was a dumpster fire when they took over. If they can get better luck on the injury front and some of the DB's develop this year they have a shot to make the play-offs as a WC team. I like the overall direction the team is headed. The offense will be fun this year. The defense is going to come down to the DB group IMO and how well they take the next step. The potential is there. ETA - they just signed that "old" punter btw to a 4 year deal. Things are looking up lol
  2. Yeah, age of the punter is one of the dumber things I have seen people being worried about. If he turns out be as good as they hope he could punt for 10 + years. As for Matt Miller's conjecture, he's turned into a pretty big hack. Claims to have sources with the Niners but never breaks any real news of importance. KS has had his hands all over the drafts/FA acquisitions and it's evident he wants to have a say. Lynch isn't the main personnel guys anyway. People think of him too much like a "normal GM." He really isn't. Peters manages the player evaluations / draft boards. Lynch is there to be the voice of the franchise and help Kyle's vision come to fruition. It's clear just about every offensive addition has been a KS pick. Silly report all around.
  3. Would not be surprised. Hopefully they can trade out if that happens. Really don't want them to use that pick on Williams regardless of how talented he is.
  4. Once again completely #### on by the NFL schedulers. Just an awful lineup. Week 1: @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1:25 P.M., FOX, Sunday, September 8 Week 2: @ Cincinnati Bengals, 10:00 A.M., FOX, Sunday, September 15 Week 3: vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, 1:25 P.M., CBS, Sunday, September 22, Week 4: Bye week Week 5: vs. Cleveland Browns 5:15 P.M., ESPN, Monday, October 7 Week 6: @ Los Angeles Rams, 1:05 P.M., FOX, Sunday, October 13 Week 7: @ Washington, 10:00 A.M., FOX, Sunday, October 20 Week 8: vs. Carolina Panthers, 1:05 P.M., FOX, Sunday, October 27 Week 9: @ Arizona Cardinals, 5:20 P.M., FOX, Thursday, October 31 Week 10: vs. Seattle Seahawks, 5:15 P.M., ESPN, Monday, November 11 Week 11: vs. Arizona Cardinals, 1:05 P.M., FOX, Sunday, November 17 Week 12: vs. Green Bay Packers, 1:25 P.M., FOX, Sunday, November 24 Week 13: @ Baltimore Ravens, 10:00 A.M., FOX, Sunday, December 1 Week 14: @ New Orleans Saints 10:00 A.M., FOX, Sunday, December 8 Week 15: vs. Atlanta Falcons, 1:25 P.M., FOX, Sunday, December 15 Week 16: vs. Los Angeles Rams, TBD, Saturday OR Sunday, December 21/22 Week 17: @ Seattle Seahawks, 1:25 P.M., FOX, Sunday, December 29 Week 4 bye after 2 road games to open. 4 10 am games with back to back games at Baltimore and New Orleans late in the year. The East Coast trash never have to deal with this crap. A joke every year. Week 12 on is going to be a tough stretch.
  5. They are more interested in overpaying an injured LB and possible trading for a one-hit-wonder pass rusher. Who is going to cost a ton. But hey we have Kendrick Bourne to pair with Kittle so it's all good.
  6. Congrats Brown's fans. Fleeced the Giants. Must be nice to a have a good GM with balls.
  7. Kwon Alexander 4 years / 54 million, 27 guaranteed. WTF... From PFF's 2019 FA Buyer Beware list: Guess he will fit right in on defense.
  8. JFC what a tough crowd. I'm done here lol. Was passing on info. I follow this team closely, like crazy obsessed fan closely, so I read everything, watch all the press conferences, etc. I'll stick to the homer thread. You FF dudes are obviously serious business here. And again, I have no vested interest on this. Do what you want with the info, I couldn't care less
  9. I was responding to why I said that (you must not follow the team closely), which was because of the laughing guys initial response. Please make sure you are keeping up with what you are responding to please.
  10. Well, that's what you get when respond by just laughing like a jack ### without providing any additional info to support your claim. And my response was with respect to how things are currently stacking up. Of course things could change. And I am not in need of planning for anything. If McKinnon becomes a backup I couldn't care less, I only care that team wins games. I was providing insight into how the current RB situation is shaping up based on following things closely throughout training camp / pre-season. But hey, go with the guy you like most.
  11. What? They report on what they are observing and what the coaches tell them. It's not that complicated. They also have the FB, it doesn't take much to figure out they won't dress 5 total RB's on game day. And McKinnon's value to this offense is his ability to catch passes in space, something they have emphasized a ton throughout training camp. You all can do what you want with the info. I don't play FF anymore so I don't have a vested interest either way. I'm passing it on as someone who follows the team very closely and as it stands now all arrows point towards McKinnon and Breida starting game 1
  12. You obviously don't follow the team closely. This is pretty much standard info from just about every beat writer. They are not going to dress 4 RB's on game day. As it stands now, McKinnon and Breida along with Mostert, who is a special teams ace, will be in uniform. Do you have additional info we don't know?
  13. There is no speculation on this at all. McKinnon will be the starter and if Morris makes the team it will be as the 4th back, meaning he won't be in uniform unless there is an injury to either McKinnon or Breida. McKinnon has looked very good throughout training camp and they are pretty high on him. Lynch was on KNBR and his comment was related to Baldy's analysis that Morris looked good, which he did, but hard to glean much as the o-line was blocking much better that game than the previous two. Would temper the Morris hype unless there is an injury to either starter. If they let Mostert walk and only keep 3 RB's, which seems unlikely as this point, he may have more immediate value.
  14. Going from Jimmy G to Beathard is like turning the cheat mode off. He processes everything like 3x slower lol. Looking forward to watching Warner and Taylor. Love how Sherman went over to the DB's after the first drive to discuss what happened.
  15. Great opening drive. Pass defense needs to get it together. Richburg with 35 yards in penalties on one play is less than great lol.
