  1. Michaelitis. One day when my best friend and I were young, one of the neighborhood kids - Michael - wanted to join us. We told him we couldn't, because we had Michaelitis and it caused us to be sick when we were around kids named Michael. He was disappointed, but ultimately understanding.
  2. Completely agreed. Especially when Moseley/Reed have each made big special teams plays.
  3. I mean, PFF is the Wikipedia of sports evaluations, so if that is what you see fit to trust then go ahead. Everything I have read from the beat writers since May has indicated the opposite.
  4. He is definitely known for being a better run blocker than a pass blocker. Whether or not that is true in the NFL is hard to answer as we only have garbage time snaps from him in his career and preseason football, which Staley proved is pretty meaningless in evaluating how a talent will play in an actual game.
  5. To me, here are the most important questions because of Staley's injury. Skule is a better run blocker than pass blocker. So if he can be only a minor drop-off from Staley in that regard, we should still be able to run well to both sides which can allow Shanahan to scheme protection through playaction and bootlegs (watch the Goodwin TD, and the only real important block is the one Juice makes to give Jimmy enough time to get the ball to a wide open Goodwin). So if that happens and Skule can handle the run blocks, I think we can weather the storm this week.

    Seems like Kyle Nelson won that competition.

    He's a real easy way to clear up a roster spot, but we lose money this year and next year are at zero (no savings) if we get rid of him.
  9. This would have been a great year to face the AFC East.

    I cannot imagine a contract scenario where Buckner has less than a $12M cap hit. And if there is one, it is likely offset by a scenario in which Kittle makes more than his currently scheduled $800k.

    Actually, having discussed it, I change my mind. I think this would be a bad move. The upgrade might be minimal, the expense would be extravagant, and it prevents us from making other needed upgrades.

    With what non-existent cap space are you using to pay Ramsey and Sherman over $23M, including to pay one of them to play a spot they never played before? Or are you getting rid of Garoppolo, Buckner, Staley, Richburg, Ford, or Alexander instead? Because even with cutting McKinnon, we still need to free up space to merely fit Ramsey onto the squad, and that says nothing of the 3rd round and beyond draft picks or any other spots where we need to upgrade via free agency. Which means next year you're bringing back the same receivers and offensive linemen in 2020 and not replacing Armstead/Blair/Day on the DL with anything more than UDFAs.

    No, once in a generation talent comes once in a generation, so by definition, only one of those players in those generations exist. And for the last 3 - Sanders, Bailey, Revis - they were all traded or switched teams in their prime. So it's basically remained true that once in a generation talent is often available for the right price. That said, "on his rookie deal" is an odd qualifier when he has a $13M guaranteed cap hit coming next year (8th highest at the position in the NFL) which would be the 4th highest on the team next year. And he is going to want a contract that is significantly higher per year immediately. I'm not too excited about his "rookie deal." But I am very intrigued by the concept of adding Ramsey to the team, because he is a top talent. I'm just not going to do it because "players of his stature" aren't available often or because of his "rookie deal." The only reason I'd add him is with the expectation that Sherman is gone at the end of the year, because there would be no reason for him to stick around any longer than 2019 in a scenario where Ramsey is added. Then moving forward, we don't have a CB need until we lose Witherspoon at the end of 2020 (as we won't be able to afford him with Ramsey on the team).

    In the last 25 years, Deion Sanders, Champ Bailey, and Darrelle Revis all switched teams in their 20s while at the top of their game. In addition, Rod Woodson, Aeneas Williams, Ty Law, Charles Woodson, Richard Sherman (and undoubtedly others) all switched teams in their early 30s and played at high levels with their new team. That's just the Hall of Famers list at this one position. It's not including guys like Asante Samuel, Antonio Cromartie, Brandon Flowers, Jonathan Joseph, Casey Hayward, Aqib Talib, Vontae Davis, etc., etc., etc. who all switched teams in their prime and played at a high level (Pro Bowl or All-pro) with their second team. These guys are available each and every year. It's not as infrequent as one might think.
