    I really think it was the Niners trade that made us go 

    tenor.gif?itemid=12486338

    That's when we realized we needed to start looking at plans F, G, and H on the list.

    That very easily could have been us.

    We talked to Miami before the 49ers did, saw their asking price and said "hell no".

  2. Two parts I found especially interesting

    ...

    While the move surprises many, Fitterer saw it coming because the Panthers also had talked to Miami about the possibility of moving to No. 3. Ultimately, the Panthers balked at the draft picks that Miami wanted. Plus, Fitterer was reluctant to make a move before the Panthers completed their evaluations of the top QBs in the draft by attending the pro days for Wilson and Fields.

    ...

    With the Panthers’ selections falling in the top 10 in each of the first six rounds, Fitterer is not willing to part with a high pick in this year’s draft. “We wanted to keep our picks this year — one, two and three. That was really important to us, especially picking as high as we are in some of those rounds,” he says.

    ...

    Probably worth remembering that Fitterer's background is as a draft scout.

    Im kinda surprised they didn't ask Robby Anderson about what he's like as well, since he was in the lockerroom with him for a couple years.

    They did.

    From the article in the link...

    Rhule and Fitterer also begin talking to Robby Anderson and other players who were teammates with Darnold in New York.

    Ya know when you think about it, if Fitterer wasn't willing to give up that kind of haul in a trade for the #3 pick, it makes you wonder if he'd have also balked at making a similar offer for a certain Texans quarterback.

    (mind you, it never got to the negotiation stage because Caserio maintained right up till the scandal hit that they weren't trading him, but still...)

    I saw an ex football player who now works at ESPN, I can't remember his name. He was at the Senior bowl workouts and saw Rhule coaching all week. He was all in on Darnold becoming a good QB at Carolina. I'm paraphrasing but he said something like after watching Rhule work really hard and really coaching those kids all week that he was really impressed by him and he had not doubt that Darnold would succeed under Rhule. 

    You're thinking of Louis Riddick.

    I mean the problem is that Manning wasn't standing next to Gase. 

    After all, it was Manning's play calling that gave Gase his name to start with.

    Per Albert Breer, he basically expected both Tannehill and Darnold to be able to run the offense just like Peyton did.

    (good luck with that)

    Okay this stuff is concerning and scary any way you look at it regarding the children. Neglect or even spankings can lead to this? I do the best I can with my 11 year old but I know I'm not perfect as a father. Growing up I routinely watched my father rape and choke my mother as well as hit her and talk like filth to her. When I was young my father would kick my ass routinely as well including sticking knives to my throat and putting loaded guns to his head in front of me. My father killed himself in 2006. I never had his brain analyzed of course. I am paranoid of ever being an abusive parent to my chikd so I don't spank or even scream at him. My kid is a very good loving child but occasionally he acts like a jack ass to me yet nobody else. When he acts up by smart mouthing me, I have to raise my voice at him and sometimes take his playstation away or not allow him to play hockey at the rink. Hell, sometimes I get busy with work and am late an hour or so when he is waiting on me to do something he wants to do. Makes me worry I could neglect him or screw up his brain. Where is the happy medium? Those case studies worry me and now I wish I had not read your post unfortunately.

    Damn, dude 😕

    I agree. Aaron Hernandez was a criminal in college. Football is a pretty violent sport and there’s going to be some bad people that just happen to be very athletic and strong. Maybe it does contribute some but acting like the NFL is full of only really nice people that only do bad stuff due to CTE is pretty naive. It goes to our society trying to find things to blame. Gronk plays with less finesse than Hernandez and he wasn’t shooting people in college and killing multiple people like a gangster in the NFL.

    One of Hernandez's Patriot teammates (I forget who) said he made a casual joke at Hernandez once - like football players do to rookies - and Hernandez reacted angrily and violently.

    From that point on he was wary of him.

    It’s a pattern. Some of y’all look at outliers way too much and think that somehow this player will be the same. And it doesn’t matter what body part. If a player is getting banged up and missing games year after year it means they can’t hold up in the nfl. I don’t hold it against them as far as thinking they’re soft. Football is a violent game.

    like Matt rhule even said being available is an extremely important part of playing in the nfl. Because it’s true.

    Only one thing to do then...
