  1. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Yes. I get that feeling, too. Alas. I have gone Malik Hooker and Minkah Fitzpatrick in previous years and learned my lesson.

    I mean, the 90th percentile SPARQ score alone makes him worth a flier on the third day. There are certain similarities with the way a man named George was handled in college. If you're looking for someone who can do a passable George impression...

    Report: These takes are fresh, insightful, and well-considered.

    But I thought certitude of delivery implied knowledgability! You have disillusioned me, sir!

    Thank you for your insight. I have learned not to be so aetherial from your imperatives.

    Tannehill has one phenomenal quality: he isn't Blaine Gabbert.

    He is a massively gifted athlete and (currently) a relatively ineffective pass rusher. Even considering the amount of time he spent as a 5-tech versus a more likely pass rushing position.

    Agreed. And I'm right with them on that point (assuming no smokescreens).
  9. Dee Ford - the man who played for two Auburn teams in a National Championship game (one of the only men, to be sure, and once as a ~210 pound Sophomore). This was his finest moment in the blue and orange:
  10. 49ers Re-sign Jimmie Ward

    I refuse to acknowledge that I stand by the Jimmie Ward thing. I don't think that he's worth money other than the minimum or a roster spot. This one, I absolutely do not agree with. And although I am capable of enormous hubris, I do not foresee myself being wrong.
  11. 49ers Re-sign Jimmie Ward

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. Really. Don't play him at corner though. I still have nightmares of his interpretations of his cover 3 responsibilities.

    Are there some injured SDE/3Tech tweeners we can grab?

    So, as far as adjusting to throwing different coverages, there could be an argument to be made that we continued playing coverages that were suboptimal for winning in the present in order to prepare the roster for a scheme that the administration sees as optimal going forward. Like a soccer team learning to pass the ball out of the back and hold a high defensive line and looking awkward and uncomfortable, but getting better and ultimately in order to be a great team, you have to be able to possess the the ball comfortably. Even considering the scheme they intend to run long term, though, it probably wasn't ideal. A little too obvious how they'd make checks. A little too regular cover 3 zone. But all these can be chalked up to getting the roster to grips with the basics. As for Solly and Earl Mitchell, I haven't the foggiest. But the positional coach associated with those choices is gone. That indicates at least the organization's awareness of the issue. If the defense doesn't look more in tune with each other this year, Saleh will follow his subordinate out the door.

    The scheme possibly not. The positional coaching, yes. Man, we did not understand how to run zone coverage. Especially for the first ten games. And while I'm concerned about FS, it was Witherspoon+Ward+CandidateX at corner that were mind-achingly awful. The safeties didn't get to plays in the seams occasionally that they should. But the corners would do inexcusable things like jump short routes while giving up deep over routes from the opposite side twenty yards in any direction. And not just once in a game, but several times. These aren't athletic problems (except in Sherm's case).

    Don't say these things.
