    Oher getting Joe killed at LT or um, some of us complained.

    I'm as excited as anyone about Mckinnie but, Um, not so fast on the bookends. See post above where Oher might be on short time here as we say in the Army and we're not sure if McKinnie can even play a full season. He sure couldn't last year. He'll be on even shorter time if he gets another Big Mac attack and Dee was sure wrong. We've had nothing but trouble at LT since JO left going from Gaither to Oher to McKinnie missing most of last year but he finally got us the SB when he finally showed up. It would have been a lot easier if that damn Mike Nolan hadn't jump in front of Ozzie and stolen Joe Staley. Man, that presser was like a morgue even though Oz just drafted Grubbs.

    People talk about the SB hangover for the winners, but I think it's worse for the losers.

    Of the first 46 Super Bowl losers, two won the big game the next season. The last team to do it: the 1972 Miami Dolphins. So, yes, the 49ers will enter the 2013 season looking to break a 41-year drought.

    Re: McKinnie Signs 2 year deal with Ravens

    Well, count me as shocked this got done. Ozzie was content to let the market set itself for McKinnie...and it did with his visits. Will be interested to see the details, see how high we had to go to retain him. Will tell us if McKinnie's camp "won" by getting Ozzie to jump on a more expensive deal.

    Re: McKinnie Signs 2 year deal with Ravens

    I wonder how it is structured and what the guaranteed money is?

    I can't find anything more at the moment. The only detail I saw from Aaron Wilson is that 7 mil includes incentives.

    Probably workout bonuses...weight clauses...etc.

    Things that will actually motivate him to workout with the team during the off-season and maintain healthy practices.

    Maybe now he will break even with his debt issues?

    I know a lot of these guys live paycheck to paycheck during the season (how thats possible is beyond me) and all of his issues arose at the lockout. Its been 2 years now of paychecks and from what i understand he owed 4.3m for missing ONE payments and its never been said if he didnt have some or all of it in his possession at the time. I have to assume hes gotten that mostly taken care of at this point, by either 2 years worth of pay and/or endorsements plus whatever savigns he may have had. Maybe he made enough with his record label...

    side note: reading up on that is obviously a sign at how bad McKinnie is with money, but it also speaks to how shady that loan company was. The terms were ridiculous. extremely high rate, miss one payment and they can sue you for the entire loan+interest+fees+penalties. I guess anybody stupid enough to sign it is one thing, but a business saying theyre trying to help the players, certainly wasnt doint that based off this.

    Man I am loving this. Given what else was out there and given that he knows this team we couldn't have asked for much more. Even the money is not too too bad. Obviously he isnt long term solution but he's still got at least a couple years in the tank (provided he stays focused) and should really help Joe turn it up that much more. And if that's the case maybe we don't even need that vet possession WR. Give a great QB time and he makes decent WRs look good and sometimes great. Maybe Joe with this fortified line can do that for Doss or Dionte or whoever.

    Sounds crazy but this team might be right on a par with last year's only younger and faster. Oz is doing it yet again.
