It's Thanksgiving you fugging goon.

Anyway, who is the second bust behind Balmer? Smith, Crabtree and Iupati are all starters and keys in their team's success.



For where he was drafted many would say Crabtree hasn't lived up to the billing.
That said at the time he was probably the right pick..

This talk of a "moneyball" approach makes me a bit nervous, as well as his one time comment that he would never pay big money to Guards.

He may not want to pay them, but drafting Iupati in the first before the rookie wage scale shines a little light of that.

When judging Crabtree you really have to take into account the QB situation before Harbaugh and the fact that they still rely heavily on the run. I'm not his biggest fan, but I could see him as a stud in a better O, like NO, GB, Denver, etc.

Scott also drafted that stud that plays beside Patrick Willis. I think his name is Navorro Bowman. I remember when he played at Penn State under Joe Paterno. I saw one game and I said when he gets into the league he will be a stud.

If that list is legit though I would accept anyone of those guys for the GM job. Especially Eric Decosta, but it will be tough to pry him away from Baltimore.

The Giants model fits what Richardson has been wanting this whole time but what Marty couldn't deliver. The Giants put the run offense first and their front four on D first. That same formula is what got us into the Super Bowl and we haven't sniffed it since because of the backslide in D line and O line talent the past 9yrs.

You start your team with those guys and your QB may have a clean jersey a couple games.

that whole 49ers thing is weird. not sure what to make of that mess. harbaugh benefited greatly, tho, from a team that was already pretty well built, largely thanks to the work that McC did.

if he had anything to do with the rebuild of the seahawks then i'm all for him being brought in as GM.

pretty solid prospect, imo.

not sure if he's better than ross or decosta, but still sounds better than hurney.
