my gut tells me a trade is in the works

you rotate kug in while he learns to take the skates off his feet.

 

i don't like starting rookies on the OL, regardless of what division they played in college or where they were drafted. bring them along slowly. throwing them in the fire might be good for their development, but it could effect the team in a really bad way.

 

bring kug along slowly this year. use him situationally when he's healthy again (rushing downs) and then go from there.

 

that's what i'd do, anyway.

 

you're a fuging cynic..  I think he could start day 1.

i think he could. i just don't think it would be pretty.

 

i've never been a fan of rookie OLs starting, esp. for us since we've had to deal with it so much in the past few years. i think it is a necessary evil but i'm ready for experienced guys on the line who are used to working with each other. i don't like the growing pains involved.

 

i'm one of the few guys that like kugbilla's potential and have from the beginning (although i still wish we would have used that pick elsewhere...esp. on patton) but rookie OL play like they are on roller skates and they make a lot of mental mistakes bringing about penalties and negative yardage moreso than others on the line.

I think a pairing of Amini and Bell....is something RR is too smart to attempt. Cam would get killed

Mark my words,Kug won't help this line much if at all this year. Next week we will see who else they can bring in to try and put together a serviceable oline this season. The big T helps, the right side needs the help bad.I wouldn't mess with the left side and start a whole new learning curve for Amini. Don't fix what isn't totally F##### up, fix what is.

Amini and bell on the same side is frightening, just be blown pass pro every other play

Amini would be better at RG at the moment, me thinks. Wharton had good chemistry with Kalil and Gross. It's worth experimenting on. Cam is getting killed now anyways.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
