    Hi, This is an application to adopt the San Francisco 49ers as my second team for the upcoming season. The reasons being; - The Jimmy G connection - I also man-crushed Nick Bosa... - SF is my fav city in the states - Will be fun to root against rammy's Rams and the Seahawks in general - The Brady and Edelman connection - Apparently Bill and Shanny are tight Please consider. Obliged Go 9ers.

    After some quick reading, it really does seem like this explains a lot of the things that were both rumored and publicly visible. Seems like a really difficult thing to go through. Kinda sucks that the narrative in some circles became about a GM so checked out that he was sleeping through meetings, rather than a story about a guy who was pushing through a debilitating disease and the things people were seeing were symptoms of that.

    Sounds like a terrible disease - I really feel for Ted and his family. I wish him nothing but the best in his years ahead as he fights this disease.

    A-Rob in 2nd year. He showed up big time in loss to Eagles. People are already writing this guy off as a 2020 cap casualty and after thought. We need to take some time in 2019 to enjoy our 2018 top free agent who was arguably one of best free agents on market in 2018. We all knew he was coming off a major injury and probably wouldn't set world on fire in year 1 with a young QB and both in a new offense. Roquan Smith in 2nd year. In several games in 2nd half of season he was all over the field. Kind of forgotten about after a bit of a slow start and other issues taking center stage. But the 2018 #1 pick showed signs that he is worthy of a top 10 selection. He closes on ball faster than any LB I have seen in NFL. Mitch Trubisky in 2nd year. People tell me you know he made pro bowl right? Yes, but if you listen to podcasts, forums and twitter from opposing teams during game week none of them were afeared of MT. It was rest of team that concerned them. Even a marginal improvement could mean a large improvement for the team. There is no reason to think he won't be better this year than last year and every reason to think he will be. Khalil Mack. I still can't believe he is on the Bears. Initial discussions we had on topic were kind of joking and pie in the sky. Yeah we gave up a ton, but we got a ton too. Without Mack Bears probably do what Packers did in FA this year and perhaps would be desperately trying to trade up to take an unproven pass rusher in this years draft. That or they had a poor enough record that they can outright select one. So we have a couple of middle tier guys and a rookie with potential or we have premiere OLB in the game. Defense. This defense may not be as statistically good as last year, but I think they are going to be more fun to watch. They got some guys that can flat make plays. J. Daniels. If Q. Nelson didn't exist Daniels would be on track to be best young guard or center in the league in my opinion. He hasn't played like it yet for a long stretch, but all signs are there. This guy is uber talented and athletic. UDFA and late round draft pick battles to make the roster. Will Wims who impressed last year make team again after team spent 4th round pick on WR and signed Patterson? Will speedster and top UDFA Hall somehow make the team along with Wims? Or is it one or other? Assuming no way they drop a 4th round pick in Ridley in year one. I don't know, but I would find a way to keep both Wims and Hall. Dax Raymond likely makes team because he has little competition and has already impressed coaches in shorts and a t-shirt. Bars has inside track being both talented and one of O line coaches guys. Can Betts or Harris play their way onto team in 2nd weakest position depth wise? Shaheen. Can Shaheen become more than an after thought in 2019? A lot of that is predicated on staying healthy. Kicker. Did we find a stud young kicker with a big leg from Oakland? It would be cool to see 56+ yard field goals in Soldier Field and every kick off a touch back or high to 1 yard line. Coward. Is this year that Coward experiment bears real fruit? Gentry. Probably last off season with Bears. Like to see him get released and get a try out in Buffalo with his college QB or see what Pats could do with him. Still rooting for that guy. Tarik Cohen. Most fun player to watch in entire NFL. If Shelley makes team I can seem him and Cohen becoming friends. Similar dynamic personalities in pint size packages. Duke Shelley. This guy competes at a small size. Out going personality and confidence already has him being noticed. Nichols. Hicks took him under his wing in 2018 and it paid large dividends. Drafted to play the nose, he made so many plays in practice that he got moved to DE. Then made so many plays in games that he took over starting DE. For Fangio who hates rookies. Like to see that arrow keep moving up. Tolliver. Another guy who was an after thought that ended up making so many practice plays he made team. Then was Fangio's first guy off bench on outside and played well in spot duty. Got hurt in camp and still made the team as an UDFA. Another guy I would like to see take another step.

    If you truly believe it was "more powerful" to have Jon completely ignore Ghost than it would've been to have him say an emotional goodbye and pet the damn dog - you're clearly not a dog owner nor someone I want to associate with. Ever.

    Agreed. *IF* we’re gonna overpay someone and eat into that cap a bit, either one of those guys would be my choice. Either of those two with Richardson and Ogunjobi is a nasty 3 man rotation.

    I definitely have this as well. It's why I really hope Marvel teases their future really soon. Right now there's nothing to look forward to, and everything pales in comparison to Infinity War/Endgame. They really need to get me invested again because solo movies just don't do it for me right now. It's why I literally could not care less about the DC movies since there's no bigger picture, no greater reason/meaning behind their movies. They really have to tease X-Men and make them a priority because Elementals, that Kung Fu movie (I effing HATE martial arts movies), and a bunch of solo sequels will not hold my interest. Sure, I'm going to see Spider-Man. Spider-Man: Homecoming is one of the best Marvel movies there is, but now it just feels like the whole story is trivial without having elements that lead to something more. I don't think it's Marvel fatigue, I think it's the opposite. They've set the bar extremely high with Infinity War and Endgame, and I see their sales declining sharply.

    A distraction from what exactly? They’re doing this in May, not September. Just picking a guy has worked out terribly for Pace since releasing Gould so they are taking an entirely different approach this time with a kicking specialist coach added to the staff and a true competition over an extended period of time. That is knowing their weaknesses IMO, and personally I’d rather they be as thorough as they can be in vetting their options and not just pick a guy who had one good week if they’re going with a young kicker vs. a vet. You see it as a sideshow but I don’t see that at all. Fixing kicker is the story of our offseason. The media is going to be all over our kicking situation until the replacement for Parkey makes a big kick in a meaningful game (or games) whether they decide who our kicker is this week or in August.

    Durant is one of the best offensive players of all time, so yes, he's one of the best overall players of all time. I don't care if he took the "easy way out."

    BDL Free Agency occurs much later than they NFL because we like it that way, Normally starts the end of May/Early June. This gives time for all the contracts to settle down and also teams to add those last few pieces they need for the upcoming year. The 2019 FA Schedule (on a rotating basis) 1. OL/QB - The Essentials Week (June 3rd-9th) 2. DB/DL/LB - Defense Week (June 10th-16th) I'm going to be out of town the 12th-17th so will need help updating stuff this week. 3. RB/TE/WR/FB - Skill Players Week (June 17th-23rd) Basic Rules Free Agent Deals and Extensions can range from 2 to 5 years. If a multiple year contract the lowest yearly salary is $501 A team’s active bids may not exceed the salary cap. In FA a player will continue to be bid on until 48 hours has elapsed from the previous bid. The initial bid has to be within the week of that position groups free agency period. If an offer stands for 48 hours without a new bid then that player will automatically be signed by the winning team and locked on to your roster for the current year. You cannot take a bid back so please bid accordingly and make sure you have the cap space. Please try not to edit your posts as we will be using the timestamp for bid verification. If you do edit your edit time will be the official start time of the bid. The League Minimum is $501 per year. In FA a player will continue to be bid on until 48 hours has elapsed from the previous bid. The initial bid has to be within the week of that position groups free agency period. Any bids on FA players must be a minimum of 2 years. Any bid on a player has to maintain a 50% basis of their real life salary To be a 4 year contract, salary has to be greater than $1,500 To be a 5 year contract, salary has to be greater than $2,000 and maintain a 60% basis of their real life salary. For contract totals that are $5,000 and under the current offer needs to be beaten by at least $250. For contract greater than or equal to $5,000 but less than $10,000 the current offer needs to be beaten by at least $500. For contracts greater than or equal to $10,000 but less than $20,000 the current offer needs to be beaten by at least $1,000 Contracts greater than or equal to $20,000 the current offer must be beaten by $2,000 For every extra year added you must add at least 85% of the leading bids salary to the total contract size. For every year decreased in a offer in free agency, you must increase the yearly salary by 5%.

    Maybe instead of feeling like a victim, you should learn to take ownership of why people would want to attack you. Example - saying you liked Foster Moreau more than Fant which 1) you never said pre-draft 2) Said exactly the opposite by your supporting Fant and 3) ignoring the fact you said it

    I would love to see them bring back a couple of Hulk villains. Prof. Hulk would have to realize that he can't beat them as he is and has to revert to OG Hulk form. And he is never able to regain the Prof. Hulk balance. Now that would be a great twist. Take away his hopeful, happiness and make him the tragic hero.
