  1. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    More in line with Fureys on that one. Only in a trade down scenario and even then I don't love it because I think he's an okay player, but not a great one at the next level. I don't think he has the upside as some of these guys, and I question his fit as a LEO. I think he's a big end. Lacks a lot of athleticism in my opinion.
  2. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Honestly, I agree. He's lazy. I think he'll blow up the combine too, so he's going to get some crazy love. But yeah, something isn't clicking there with what he is putting on the field.
  3. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Some people really, really love that guy. He also has Josh Jacobs going number 5, so yeah. I'm not so sure about that.
  4. Trade Brown for what?

    I haven't heard anything about rumors regarding AJ Green, especially not at a compensation level. I'd like a link there because I'd be really curious about that. I'd be interesting in landing Green for the 49ers if he was really available lol. Especially at that cost haha. But secondarily, Green has been fighting injuries for years now, his production has slipped and hasn't been comparable to Brown in a long, long time. As you said with Cooper, these aren't really all that comparable. Green's value shouldn't have anything to do with Browns, similar to how Cooper's (or Cooks') shouldn't have much to do with Brown.
  5. Trade Brown for what?

    Golden Tate just net a third round pick. Brown is far superior as a player, they are the same age, and Brown is under contract for 3 more years at a pretty low number given his production where as Tate was a pure rental. Plus, there's the floor on what Pitt is even willing to entertain that must be considered.
  6. Trade Brown for what?

    I don't know that he will land an actual first, though I think it has to be on the table for a couple of teams, but I find it unlikely that he doesn't get first round value. 49ers #36 + 4th rounder would equate to first round value equivalent to pick 28/29. #36 + next years third would also be first round value. I don't think it's going to be that hard to get first round value, even if not necessarily getting a first round pick.
  7. Cowboys fire OC Scott Linehan

    Congratulations Cowboys fans!
  8. Trade Brown for what?

    I did answer that question in my original post - I think that they will get something in line with first round value, even if it's not an actual first round pick. I Think the 49ers second round pick this year + something else is very much on the table, which would likely push it to first round value overall, even if it's a late first round value.
  9. Trade Brown for what?

    10 teams is a lot. It only take 2 to ramp up the value. Heck, the 49ers didn't even have 2 teams interested in the #2 pick a couple of years ago and still got the bears to push the value up in the trade. Sometimes it just takes a lot. If a team is interested in AB, the contract and cap space won't be an issue, they'll find a way to make it work.
  10. Trade Brown for what?

    His cap hit isn't big though. The contract is one of the most appealing things about him provided a team feels comfortable about him not holding out to demand more money. His contract hits are 15m, 11m, 12.5m. That's pretty light all things considered. The acquiring team has no guarantees or dead money on the deal either. The contract is largely inconsequential for any team acquiring him. That's easily doable for just about every team. I don't see how the Steelers aren't getting first round value in some form or fashion, particularly with the number of teams that theoretically will be interested. They may not get a first round pick, but they'll get the value through like 2 seconds or something in my opinion.
  11. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Solid measurements for Blace Brown. He's a guy I like in those middle to late rounds. Obviously not the highest level of competition, but 11 interceptions in his first two years there shows that he has a knack for the football which is something we desperately need. Seems like a very good fit in our zone coverage scheme as well.
  12. Trade Brown for what?

    He did trade for Percy Harvin...granted, that didn't go well, so that probably would have soured him even more on those type of players lol, but I was speaking more just from the standpoint of I think that on the field, that would be a nice fit and they have shown a willingness to make those kind of moves before. I do agree that it's probably unlikely, but if I were them, I'd be considering it.
  13. I think we should seriously be debating putting Severson on the wing during power plays. The construction of Zajac / Boyle / Zacha is just such a bad combination. I really have no idea how Hynes even thinks that it is a good one. I watched when Severson was on the PP from the defensive spot, and he pinches so much that he's basically playing the wing anyway. He's got a nice shot, he could easily be the single wing sit and shoot guy on a PP2 line while Palms filled that role on PP1. The current power plays have way, way too much overlap going on. Zajac / Boyle / Zacha (with Palms) is just a terrible combination, particularly for getting the puck to Palms, while Marjo / Bratt / Nico is a more skilled line, but too much overlap in the way that they play their game. I don't know how these are viewed to be strong combinations.
  14. Trade Brown for what?

    I don't think there's any way in which #2 overall is part of the deal (even if were a swap of picks, that's valuing AB as a top 5 overall pick, and i don't think that he has that kind of value), so I think if the bidding got to a point where it had to be included, the 49ers would pull out and look elsewhere (I could see them putting in a call to the Bengals for AJ Green, the Giants for OBJ, or try and nickel and dime it with someone like Parker from Miami). But it could certainly bump the trade return up if the 49ers are willing to play ball in negotiations for a time, even if they are ultimately not the team that acquires him. There are certainly teams that are going to have to consider making the move for their first. I mean, the Colts should absolutely be considering it. Pick 26, they have 2 second round selections, a ton of money, and a need at wide receiver? They should be all over AB. They are built to win now and moving forward. Seattle could be interesting. They have nice receivers in Lockett and Baldwin (injuries playing a factor for the latter, obviously), but they could really use a game changer like AB, particularly if they aren't going to utilize a tight end much. They've also shown a willingness to part with first round picks for established players. Also, if you're the Titans, wouldn't you at least consider #19? I think AB on the Titans could be really, really interesting. The thing is, if #2 is off the table, and I suspect it will be, unless the 49ers are willing to offer multiple decent picks, whatever their offer is can be beaten relatively easily by other teams. I think the 49ers will still be aggressive in trying to acquire him, but I think in the end, there will be several teams interested in his services and teams that could probably put together a more appealing package.
  15. Official 2017-2018 NHL Thread

    2 weeks or whatever after I first complained about it.... Opening power play line on our first power play consists of Boyle / Zajac / Zacha. They can't even get control into the offensive zone for over a minute. Jesus. Hooray for adjustments....
