#2664406 Guess what

Posted by Mr. Scot on 24 February 2014 - 03:22 PM

I used to know a girl named Lola.

She was a showgirl.


#2664282 remember that rumor about the 9ers trading Harbaugh?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 24 February 2014 - 01:46 PM

he was mine as well. i'm more than ok wiith rivera now that he turned the corner and started taking risks.

that said, i still think that if you want to turn an underachieving team around in a hurry, harbaugh is the one to do it. you can't deny his success, imo. i think a lot of it has to do with his ability to spread his attitude to others. his attitude is infectious, imo. i think he knows what people need to do to get the best out of them and can push people to achieve his vision of what excellence is and what it takes to be a winner. he accepts nothing less than winning and he pursues that goal like a pit bull after a fat rabbit.

the thing about his is that he probably pushes too much. i think it's just enough to turn people around, but then i don't think he lets up and while that mindset can impress you at first, it can also wear on you if it's unrelenting. what i've seen is that harbaugh simply just wears people out and i've got to think that also likely includes those over him just as much as it would those under him.

for some coaches, their message can get old. for some, like harbaugh, i think it's just too demanding long term.

i said in discussions about him last year that if i were on the board of directors at some struggling organization that he would be the type guy who i would hire to turn them around and i still believe that. what i think we're finding out is that it might not be sustainable...but then i have yet to see a season of him coaching in the NFL where his team hasn't gotten to the NFC CG, so while he may be a crazy prick of a human, he's brought about success. if he weren't the coach of the 49ers, i think they might still be good, but i don't think they would be achieving as much as they have.


The comparison that comes to mind for me is the early version of Tom Coughlin.

I guess it's kinda like dating a hot chick who's bats--t crazy.

At some point, the drama outweighs the benefits.


#2664198 San Diego St. RB Adam Muema leaves the combine for "religious reasons"

Posted by Mr. Scot on 24 February 2014 - 12:58 PM

Mr Scott, my beliefs run parallel to your own, but it was never what got me scratching my head in this thread. My posts make my points crystal clear in that regard.


I understand.

I'm not a fan of sanctioned bigotry against Christians. But on the flipside, I can't defend what this kid is saying as sound theology.

"Baalke", "Paraag Marathe"?
Are the 49'ers ran by the Slovanian government?


Baalke should hire a head coach named Larry.

That would be Perfect B)


#2664190 If Smitty is "evaluated" and not on this team next yearn

Posted by Mr. Scot on 24 February 2014 - 12:52 PM

Couldn't agree more.

And, I will guarantee you this, Gettleman could not care less about what the fans want or what happened in the past. We can all enjoy what Smitty DID but the GM's job is to evaluate what you can DO. I am preparing myself for the emotional gut-punch this will be but still hope middle ground can be found.


I'm not dead sold on the idea that Smitty will be cut.

But I do acknowledge it as a real and legitimate possibility.

Jim Harbaugh working for Jimmy Haslam...

Now that has 'entertainment' written all over it :lol:

Everybody loves having a GM with big balls, until he cuts your favorite player.

Sure does put Mike Pettine in an awkward spot.


#2664171 San Diego St. RB Adam Muema leaves the combine for "religious reasons"

Posted by Mr. Scot on 24 February 2014 - 12:33 PM

Wow at the ppl in this thread just wow.

Hey I'm cool religion is teh dumbz!! Everyone look how cool I am!!

Tolerance is not a strong suit around here is it? Oh wait, everything except Christianity is acceptable, I forgot.

Guy says he's Gay he's a hero, guy says he talks to God and he's a piece of poo.

Good look huddle, real good look.


I'm Christian, but I don't believe God is telling this kid he'll play for the Seahawks. CP8789 said the same sort of thing.

As to Evangelion, JOAT is right that no one takes him seriously. It's well known that he's a numbskull.

Really beginning to think we dodged a bullet there.


#2662956 Clowney wants to be a Falcon

Hopes they trade up to get him...

#2662933 Early Birthday present for my daughter

Posted by Mr. Scot on 23 February 2014 - 01:43 PM

Cute little lady :)

Her wanting to be a Lions fan at her young age isn't so bad. She isn't old enough to know better. The fact that there are grown adults who still choose to be Lions fans is the baffling part.

But hey, at least she didn't say she liked the Saints or the Falcons.

(or the 49ers, ugh)


#2661648 Picks traded away in the Hurney era

Posted by Mr. Scot on 22 February 2014 - 01:33 AM

Trading for Olsen was one of the few decent trades Hurney made, but people never really credit him for it.


I do.

Hurney wasn't good enough to be a long term GM for this team, but that doesn't mean everything he did was wrong. He did a fair share of good here, even if he ultimately wasn't the right man for the job.

I am, however, happy to say that at least based on what we've seen so far, our current general manager IS the right man for the job,


#2661360 Crazy talk out of 49ers and Browns

Posted by Mr. Scot on 21 February 2014 - 07:37 PM

THIS would be awesome.

When Harbaugh returns to the office... AWKWARD.


Apparently already is :lol:

There are no words to describe how hard I will laugh if this - or something like it - happens.
