  1. This has to be some sort of ploy to confuse the Chiefs. There's no way in hell that you bench your leading tackler (second in the league as well), in favor of a guy who hasn't suited up in a Niners regular season game yet. Foster and Warner should be on the field on all three downs, Smith should come in when we're in base packages. Warner has earned the right to be the starter from here on out.
  2. Put me down for the Vikings. I wanted to go against the grain, but I also don't want to get too cute and eliminate myself. Going safe this week!

    My thoughts exactly. Everyone knows that Bosa is going to be a top 3 pick, so any team that wants him will need to pay big for him. With the amount of pass rushing talent coming out this year, I think it's perfectly acceptable to wait for one to fall, or target one that will be selected outside of the top 10.
  4. Week 2 Ravens @ Bengals

    Is Preston Brown playing tonight? I have him starting in an IDP league and I want to know if I should bench him or not.
  5. I'm also going with the Niners this week.

    And it would promote a healthier and safer environment, which is what the NFL wants people to think is actually happening
  7. Just so I understand the rules, we can't pick the same team twice, right?
  8. Week 2 GDT: Detroit Lions At San Francisco 49ers

    I think there is some merit to this, but judging from week one, the Lions' defense looks awful, Patricia looked outmatched and downright flustered all game long, and apparently, there are multiple rumors of the Lions' veteran players not liking Patricia or wanting to play for him. I think it's safe to say that the Lions are a bit of a mess right now and if the Jets can figure out to beat their defense, Shanahan definitely can.
  9. Me too, I took the Ravens as well!
  10. Week 2 GDT: Detroit Lions At San Francisco 49ers

    If our interior rush shows up again this week, Stafford is going to have another long day ahead of him. Their WR's are concerning, but I feel pretty confident that the Niners' run defense can bottle up the backs and make passing situations obvious and difficult. Jimmy G should have a nice bounce-back game this week against a pretty terrible defense.

    For real. Michigan will get exposed soon enough. I don't think they're legit this year, but they do have some studs on that defense, though. Harbaugh gets by with dominating defenses and average, good-enough offenses.
  12. If Morris didn't fumble on the goal line and he scored to make it 10-10 and Bourne wouldn't have allowed the pick six, I wonder how different the outcome of this game would've been. They had the opportunity to win this game, but inexperience and unfortunate mistakes cost them this win.

    In my opinion, both of these things tie directly into the coaching staff. For as great of a leader of men Jim Harbaugh is, he's just not very talented as an x's and o's coach. Kaep was a very raw talent, but definitely had the talent to be a good QB. Having Harbaugh and Roman as his mentors did him no favors. Same goes for Stevie Johnson, Crabtree, and every WR drafted during that time. The infrastructure to cultivate talent just wasn't there. Harbaugh relied so heavily on already-proven talent, basic smash-mount plays, and his superior O-line and defense. These components got him a lot of wins, but I felt like there were so many times that he was flat out out-coached by opposing staffs. He brought very limited creativity and when opposing teams figured him out (Seahawks), he couldn't figure out how to adjust. Looking back on the Harbaugh days, it reminds me of a super-size gym bro who could out-muscle most people but could never out-think anyone.

    No, I wasn't in it. I just did a public group last year. I think I missed the info about the pick'em here.
