    Re: Around the League



    That pick shocked everyone. It was like the Raiders Mike Mitchell pick from a couple of years ago.

Singletary had a pick nearly as bad in Taylor Mays who went in the upper part of round 2 and was cut after just 1 season.
    Highlighting the RB position for the Niners makes me think that, yeah, the current brain trust isn't that good at picking. Adding to Frank Gore they've used a lot of fairly high draft picks on the position with Hunter, James, Miller and this year Lattimore. All of them are good players and if Lattimore comes around, they could have a real stud. But....that's a lot of picks for one position and a couple of those guys are gonna want to leave after their rookie contract is up cause they aren't getting any touches. James was inactive for much of last season before Hunter got hurt and how often does any team make their 2nd round pick inactive? He could be starting elsewhere or at least in a rotation.

    I agree.

    He just looked like a soft, one dimensional speed guy.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Jim Harbaugh doesn't make the picks. Trent Baalke is the GM in charge of that, their version of Ozzie. Give him the credit and blame.

    Re: Around the League

    I always wondered why the guy started making belt gestures after throwing touchdowns.

    Rodgers always seemed like a douche to me. He's a great QB, but his personality always rubbed me the wrong way.

    Sure that wasn't just the "discount double-check" move?

    "We've always said that the quarterback is the one that needs to take the pressure off everyone else," Driver said, via ESPN.com. "If a guy runs the wrong route, it's easy for the quarterback to say, 'Hey, I told him to run that route' than for the guy to be like, 'Well, I ran the wrong route.' "
    Maybe I'm missing something, but if you're on a team with Manning or Brady and run a wrong route, they tear you a new one, sometimes before you get to the sideline. It's not the QB's job to take the pressure off the other guys; it's his job to keep the pressure on.

    I don't like the belt gesture either, but the guy is the best QB in the NFL, and it's not all that close.
    I've upped my standards. Up yours.

    I get that but the QB is also the one that's going to get all the credit for throwing four TD passes even if said receiver catches two of those balls while being double covered.

    While Manning and Brady are assholes on the field in meetings they may take their share of the blame. Rodgers may not be willing to do even that but he's ok with taking all the credit.

    Who knows.

    Re: Around the League

    It's clear that Rodgers had a lot of suppressed anger and has begun acting out.

    I mean, if Alex Smith was drafted first overall, while you fell into the twenties, had to sit behind the pompous ass that is Brett Favre, who openly acknowledged that he has no interest in teaching you anything, for three years, wouldn't you?

    Lolwut? The only thing that's clear is tat two guys who recently left a team are willing to take pot shots at the face of that team. Nothing I've ever heard or seen from Rodgers suggests he's any different from any other QB. And as far as the idea that a QB should cover up for his receiver's mistakes? Bull. Last I checked, receivers get paid too. Own your own fuck ups.
    My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging. -Hank Aaron
