  1. Week 14 GDT: Titans @ 49ers

    I think Barrows coined the term "Garoppolooza," which I quite like.
  2. Week 14 GDT: Titans @ 49ers

    Yeah, the 2017 version of Trent Brown is identical to the college version - more penalties than necessary, solid play otherwise, injuries, and questions about willingness to soldier through minor injuries. My problem with your last paragraph is that whispers are suggesting concerns about his toughness now from coaches, and it's fair to wonder if he'll be getting that extension from us. Worse, he's a Baalke pick. And we've made those kinda scarce. I said it last week, the only 2 Baalke picks I see here long-term are Tartt and Buckner.
  3. Week 14 GDT: Titans @ 49ers

    This was my thought, too. Combine that with only ever playing LT in preseason with the 3rd string line (every other lineman saw action at multiple spots and at least some 2nd string duty) leads me to think that they are not keen on that at this point. If this was another coach, I'd be concerned, but Shanahan hasn't really disappointed me in terms of getting the right guys playing time, and for the right reasons, too. I mean, he did end up starting Magnuson there over Beadles. Seems to me, it's always been a combination of "you'll play when you earn it" and "if you're struggling, I'm not afraid to look elsewhere" with him. As opposed to past coaches' "you have to earn it, but really I'm going to go with my gut and hammer a square peg through that circle hole until I'm damned" philosophy. But throughout the season, he's waited until guys were ready. Like with Witherspoon. Witherspoon himself noted that when he knew he had to work on Special Teams in order to be active, that's what he dedicated himself to doing. Shanahan rewarded that appropriately.
  4. Week 14 GDT: Titans @ 49ers

    Yeah, but Walker was notoriously bad beyond anyone else on the team, and I think this board is using some serious hindsight for Walker as he was plenty reviled here circa 2012.
  5. Minor Niner News Thread

    I think I agree with you, but I assume you aren't including Garcon on the "current" roster due to being on IR (or possibly just forgot about him).
  6. Week 14 GDT: Titans @ 49ers

    This. I think Kyle has likely wanted to be able to run the ball more, we've just gotten into a lot of passing-only situations. Late deficits, large deficits, an inability to gain yards on 1st and 2nd...I think what we've seen these last 2 weeks is what he's really wanted.
  7. Minor Niner News Thread

    Anyone know the corresponding roster move? I'm guessing Bolden to IR?
  8. 2018 Draft Thread I

    A 3rd, maybe 4th? SAM seems like the 11th player on the defense I would worry about in order of positional importance.
  9. Around the NFL

    Gore is also now the oldest player to carry the ball 36 times in a game. And the oldest in over 20 years to have 130 rushing yards.
  10. Around the NFL

    One thing I missed from Gore's game - he had a 10-yard reception. That's important, because it moved him past Curtis Martin for 8th all-time on the total yards from scrimmage list. Everyone but Gore in the top 11 is currently a Hall of Famer. #12 should be.

  11. 2018 Draft Thread I

    I agree with this. I just think with Armstrong, you're basically replacing Harold with the same type of player. Now, let me be fair - Armstrong is frequently double-teamed as the one player on Kansas's defense that opposing teams needed to account for. So - I do give that bit of grain of salt to my report on what I've seen this year. But I still see just an Eli Harold clone.
  12. 2018 Draft Thread I

    To be fair, I'm somewhat disgruntled and bitter that I put so much energy into Kansas football. Entering this year, I had him pegged as a guy I needed to follow. Was a waste of time. Much happier following guys like Simmie Cobbs, Michael Gallup, and Carlton Davis as other guys I pegged to watch early.
  13. 2018 Draft Thread I

    Armstrong seems like the perfect player to replace what Eli Harold gives the team - an overrated college pass rusher who will likely struggle to do so in the NFL and is minimally exceptional at anything else. He was a guy I watched carefully this year, and I just don't see anything there.
  14. I completely agree, and I don't foresee us losing enough ground in the draft to miss out on Nelson. For me, it's a win-win. If Garoppolo can do all this while missing important players, having Zane Beadles as his RT, and with only 40 days' worth of immersion in the complicated Shanahan playbook, and if Garoppolo is clearly an improvement over Hoyer, then there are zero reasons for me to think that he wouldn't have won those 5 games lost by 3 points or less had he been here all year. Ignoring that we'd be more competitive in those other games as well, that would still currently seat us at 7-6. I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say Garoppolo could have won 4 of the 10 games we lost, anyway. At least not based on what he's already shown.
  15. He did. But that's the first one I can recall in some time. I also failed to specify I meant INTs, so that's on me.
