#3245938 Colin Kaepernick Has Twitter Rage

Posted by rayzor on 18 February 2015 - 08:14 PM

Lol his last tweet was 11 minutes after his first two...


I can only imagine him sitting there, glaring at this guy's profile in a fit of rage, desperately trying to think of an insult, only to respond with "get better at life".




i don't know what's worse, the fact that he was stewing over it for over 10 minutes or that "get better at life" was all he could think of in those 10+ minutes.

the peckerneck doth protest too much, methinks.

#3244995 Will Gettleman be tempted to draft Gurley @ 25?

Posted by rayzor on 17 February 2015 - 09:10 PM

Well that's not very appropriate when referencing someone with the talent of Todd Gurley, but to each his own.  


I have read a few articles suggesting that Gurley may still get drafted in the first round if he gets the thumbs up by teams' medical staff.  Even if he doesn't, the only reason that he won't be a first round pick is due to the injury, so I still think that your response is over the top.


i would like to think we've moved on from overvaluing RBs and drafting them in the first round.

#3233927 Coaching Change Official

Posted by rayzor on 07 February 2015 - 02:44 PM

dehaven got the job he should have had all along and we'll be better for it.


rodgers got demoted to a position more in line with what he was qualified for and is relatively harmless in that capacity. not a big deal whatsoever.



#3230876 Rivera reassigns special teams coach Rodgers, promotes DeHaven

Posted by rayzor on 04 February 2015 - 12:47 PM

some keep mentioning the fact that he moved from team to team, as if he kept getting fired.


well, technically he did...but consider the situation in those "firings".


after his stint in buffalo ended in '99, he was picked up by the 49ers. he left in 2002 because when mariucci was fired and the ownership cleaned house...not because they were doing poorly, because they were winning, but because mooch wasn't getting along with the dysfunctional ownership.


after the politic driven house cleaning in san fran the 2002 year, he went from one good team at the end of a legendary era to work with a legendary coach in bill parcells. when parcells retired in 2006, dehaven was one of a few coaches who left (mike zimmer being another) who left to take jobs with other teams.


dehaven went to seahawks with mike holmgren (who was a very good coach), when holmgren retired dehaven stuck around for the fiasco that was the jim mora year. i almost called it an era, but it was more like a stupid blip that franchise made and then corrected by cleaning house. again, dehaven was a casualty of a house cleaning.


from seattle, dehaven went back to buffalo to a team that had a knee jerk reaction and made a mistake of firing a historically good coach two days after one bad play. yet again, though, he became a casualty of a house cleaning when chan gailey's whole staff was fired.


in all of those stints, whether he was a casualty of a house cleaning or in the case of dallas, left with parcells, he had very good special team units.


when we picked him up, it was a major score for us. i don't know who was responsible for hiring him, but keeping him behind rodgers was a huge mistake. i know that the intention was likely that dehaven would mentor rodgers (who, like other ST coaches here before him, had no previous ST experience before being asked to coach STs), but that just didn't work out. rodgers has a job with the panthers for one reason and one reason only....rivera.


dehaven should have been given the job right out. promoting him now is just correcting a mistake that was made a couple years back.


here's another issue i have. people keep giving rivera props for shuffling rodgers to some other job and promoting dehaven, but it's just as likely (maybe even moreso) that gettleman forced the issue and rivera's hand and reassigning rodgers was the only way that rivera could save his old friend's job.


rivera is a great teacher and motivator, but he has his issues with recognizing talent and putting the most talented people in the right jobs and will typically only make changes when his hand is forced for one reason or another and it's only then that the right people get in the right jobs.


point is, we now have the coaching in STs that we have been lacking for a long time. couple that with what appears to be a concerted effort to improve our return game by getting actual return guys instead of just guys "we" like and want to have a job somewhere.


we have two very good kickers and we have some good ST players here, but what has been needed is management and a legit returner. we very well could go into the 2015 season with a STs unit and staff that is capable of moving from being one of the worst in the league to one of the better ones. dehaven getting the gig is a good step in that direction.

#3225469 Ed Dickson to re-sign?

Posted by rayzor on 01 February 2015 - 01:51 AM

Dickson started to come on late in the season.

Generally a good thing to bring back guys like that.


i was thinking it took that long for shula to realize he was on the team.

you don't miss it unless forced to by being on duty in the military or something like that.


and football is not the military nor is it something nearly as important.

#3224663 Colin Cole vs Dwan Edwards

Posted by rayzor on 31 January 2015 - 09:12 AM

cole doesn't get mentioned as much, but i think he's more important to keep than dwan. he eats up blockers and stuffs the run very well in the relatively light duty he is called on to play. i'm not sure how well he would do if he had to fill in for star for a game or two. might be too many reps on his big old body.


dwan is good against the pass rush, but it seems like we have more people who can help against that than against the run. might just be my imagination on that point, though.


i'd like to keep both, but we also need to be finding some youth to keep around for a few years. one needs to be replaced soon. both eventually.

Posted by rayzor on 30 January 2015 - 04:19 PM

That one's more personal to us, but I think the time he was caught not knowing the camera was on telling all the other ESPN guys "make sure you mention that I was the one who broke that story" was more telling.



btw, stuart scott sighting. stuart handled it well, but you could tell he was annoyed.


steve young's reaction was great, esp. the tap on the arm.
