  1. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    In an instant. Assuming Murray gets taken 1 or 2 were still left with Allen, Williams, or Bosa on the board. My question is who would the Raiders be targeting in that scenario?
  2. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Really great article on EDGE vs interior pressure and which is more important. It's especially relevant to us since we are likely going to be facing the decision of drafting Bosa or Williams. https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/pro-edge-vs-interior-which-pass-rusher-reigns-supreme

    I really like Nasir Adderley with our second pick. I like him a lot more than any of the receivers. He can just step in and play fs for us day one which is pretty big considering what we have there atm. Bosa+Nasir+Butler is the dream right now.
  4. Around the NFL II - Even NFLier

    Last I heard Huston is still on KC roster. I think they're still trying to deal him. But chances are he's going to be released very soon. Should be a priority signing for us.
  5. bosa vs Allen

    IMO this is pretty easily going to go to Bosa. I think the more interesting question is who to choose between Williams and Allen if Bosa goes number one? Assuming we can't trade back of course.

    Is it realistic for Hicks to even hit FA? IIRC he's a pretty damn good player. I see the Eagles don't have a ton of cap space but I would imagine they cut a few guys to get a deal done. If he does hit FA I would love to sign him, he's still young and we could get another 5 years of high level play out of him.

    Wait, wtf there's a new football league? Where the hell did that come from? Gone for a few months and it feels like I'm in the dark about so much Also what's the deal with our ILB situation? Foster got dropped before I left but I have no idea if we have any type of serviceable replacement or not. Is it a draft priority for us?

    So why the heck are the Cards looking at a QB? What happened with Rosen that there is a belief they'll jump ship after year 1? Also where did Murray come from? I don't remember hearing his name before I left. He must have lit it up on the back half of the season.

    The military guess was right. I'm a marine working on getting into RECON. Depending on how things go I might be going away again for a while in a couple weeks. But for now I'm back baby!

    So I've been away for a while. Like completely away from football and the internet because of work since the beginning of December. Would someone mind filling me in on the 49ers news I missed? I see we're picking number 2 overall. Do we still have a shot at Bosa or are the Cards going to steal him? Is Josh Allen still beasting it up or do you think we go a different direction than edge? What about likely free agents and trade candidates? Any and all information would be helpful as I try to get my bearing back.
  11. Anime and Manga Thread.

    Haha yup this is pretty much everyone when you first watch Eva. The plot is like a big puzzle. All the pieces fit together flawlessly but it's a big complex puzzle and it doesn't help that the show intentionally misleads you on key points and never goes out of its way to explain itself. Some shows like to spoonfeed their audiences, some shows like to make their audiences learn to feed themselves, and Eva actively swats away any attempt to put the food in your mouth. Some people hate that but it just adds another layer of intrigue for me, especially because the payoff is so great once you start to figure out all the little secrets of the show. Also if you rewatch the show, watching the End of Evangelion film is a must. As far as I'm concerned if you haven't watched EoE than you haven't really finished NGE, it's the most important part of the franchise.IMO best-animated film of all time and perfectly ends the Eva franchise. It runs concurrent to the last two episodes so it gives context for what the hell is actually happening while being insane and complex in its own right. The Rebuild movies that aren't going to be on Netflix are good but nothing as great as the original. The first was exactly the same as the first 6 episodes of the show with nicer visuals, the second movies was actually really great, the third movie was a bunch of crazy setpieces and an amazing spectacle but lacked the substance that Eva is known for. It just had too many things completely out of left field and while that is normal for Eva, none of it really feels like it makes sense even after thinking about it a lot. If they do the 4th movie right it still could end up being pretty great overall, but Anno will really need to find a way to explain some of the actions the characters took in the last movie.
  12. Meh, I think he'll be fine. It was an understandable call considering his reputation but he didn't actually hit the head. It should have been called interference and I'd be surprised if the league did anything. But with the comish, you never really know.
  13. Good game. When Johansson scored near the end I really thought that Johansson was about to screw us over but it ended up ok. Feels good to be able to pay y'all back for that embarrassment earlier this season.
  14. Cardinals sign CBs Quinten Rollins and Dontae Johnson

    I see Dontae Johnson is continuing his tour of sucking for every team in the NFC West.
  15. Anime and Manga Thread.

    More crazy anime news this week: Blade Runner is getting an anime directed by Kenji Kamiyama (directed Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, the best cyberpunk anime IMO) and Watanabe (director of Cowboy Bebop, also directed a Blade Runner anime short last year )as creative producer. It'll be called Blade Runner: Black Lotus and the show is partnering with Adult Swim and Crunchyroll to bring it to TV I'm really hyped for this one. I love Cyberpunk and Blade Runner 2049 is one of my favorite Cyberpunk movies. This show has all the creative potential behind it to be a really great one. I'm really hyped. While we're at this crazy week in anime can we get a Black Lagoon season 3 announcement? Or a Konosuba season 3 announcement? Or a confirmation of the new GitS project being season 3 of Stand Alone Complex? Maybe I'm getting a little greedy...
