My takeaways from Fitterer’s presser

So a hedge fund isn’t a business???

No it’s not. The stock market is a casino. Tepper is great at manipulating the market, not running a professional sport team.

Fittz/Tepper's bold move might've shaken some feathers.

Look at the mock draft boards after the Sam trade, manipulation at it's finest.

I really hope we are still trying to add a QB in the draft. Sam could be okay, but I just can't see him leading a team to the Super Bowl. 

We aren’t going to a SB anytime soon anyway why does that matter?

Seems like we are clueless and just throwing competition together. I wonder how they are selling Tepper on that.

Well, that happens when your better options are largely gone. Stafford was #1 but we got scooped by LA, Watson was #2 but he isn't likely to be an option until next season at the earliest and trading up in the draft is going to be almost as expensive at Watson would have been. 

I can't imagine those "why" conversations with Tepper, Rhule and Fitterer coming to the conclusion that we should trade away tons of draft capital for one of these QB's in the draft. I like the top 4 guys a lot but the price of being wrong(as the 49ers may well find out) could hurt for a long time. 

So, that's kind of what we have left....throwing poo at the wall. Darnold is one of the shiner remaining turds we can throw, I suppose. At least there is a glimmer of upside still remaining, although the optimism about his career trajectory has obviously faded pretty dramatically. 

The truth is that we made a bad decision last year with Teddy and had some piss poor luck in facing a bad enough team/coach late in the season. Both of those factors didn't help our QB prospects for this offseason. We are gonna be in another unenviable position as fans this season, wishing for the best and then rooting for the worst if this decision doesn't work out. Otherwise we are going to be stuck in franchise purgatory for a while.
