  1. Wow, this has me pumped to go 7-9 and draft in the 10-15 range in a weaker qb class then this years. It's going to be awesome watching this team get blown out by the Bills and Dolphins. Seriously, do you guys realize what division we're in? In what universe is Darnold going to lead this team to victory over the Bills while Josh Allen is having MVP esque seasons?
  2. Go reread your posts. You argued that Shanahan didn't pass on Mahomes and instead his GM did. I proved you wrong, get over it.
  3. I wouldn't buy into that tweet too much. Bradley got hired by the Raiders and last year Saleh listed McDaniel over LaFleur as his OC for HC interviews.
  4. Hopefully he takes Mike McDaniel with him. Apparently that's who he listed as his OC last year for interviews, but he's close with the Lafleurs so might take Lafleur with him instead.
  5. Please draft Fields. I can not take another year of ******* Sam Darnold.
  6. Kyle Shanahan reveals why the 49ers passed on Patrick Mahomes in the 2017 NFL Draft There are layers as to why the Niners passed on Mahomes By Tyler Sullivan Jan 28, 2020 at 6:47 pm ET2 min read In some sort of alternate universe, there is an NFL where Patrick Mahomes is the quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers (Scary, I know). But, with the Niners owning the No. 2 pick at the 2017 NFL Draft and in need of a quarterback, it was certainly possible. So, why didn't it happen? After all, all San Fran had at the quarterback position was veteran Brian Hoyer, who is a fine player, but not exactly a franchise signal-caller by any stretch of the imagination. Well, that question was brought to 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, who met with Mahomes at the NFL Combine. As he explained, it was a little bit more nuanced than the team simply opting to pass on the reigning MVP. "I didn't look into him obviously as much as I should have," Shanahan said, via NFL.com. "We definitely looked into him, studied all of his tape. Was just a freak, could make any throw, had the ability to anything. That was a little bit different situation for us. We had the second pick in the draft, did not feel like from all the intel that you get and stuff that he was gonna go that high." Despite the apparent need for a quarterback, San Francisco elected to trade the No. 2 overall selection to the Chicago Bears, who dealt the 49ers four draft selections just to move up from No. 3 to take Mitch Trubisky. At the third overall spot, the organization decided to take defensive end Solomon Thomas, passing on Mahomes and even current Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. Part of the reason why the 49ers elected to skip out on quarterbacks entirely for that first round of the draft appears to be due to the fact that they had their eye at the free agent class that following offseason -- specifically Kirk Cousins. "It was a little different situation for us just 'cause I think it's pretty well documented of just the relationship I had with Kirk being in Washington and I felt very confident that he wasn't gonna stay there," said Shanahan, who was Cousins' offensive coordinator with the Redskins from 2012-13. "So anytime you go into a season knowing that a franchise quarterback was going to be available the next year, it made me a lot more picky with what we were looking at." In the end, Cousins never met up with Shanahan in the Bay Area as the 49ers later traded for former Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo around the 2017 NFL Trade Deadline. While Mahomes may have more accomplishments under his belt currently than Jimmy G, both parties should be pleased with how things turned out. After all, they're both playing for a Super Bowl title this Sunday. Not too shabby. Oh hey what do you know? I found an article talking about why he passed on him. Didn't think he was worth a high pick. It's also cause he loved Kirk Cousins. Boy you must have loved Maccagnan then. But Shanahan definitely can't be wrong about qbs.
  7. Yeah sure bro, the GM totally ignored his offensive genius HC when it came to drafting qbs. That's why they drafted CJ Beathard in the 3rd round that year. That's also why HCs like Andy Reid and Sean Payton were doing everything in their power to trade up for Mahomes that year, cause obviously GMs don't listen to their coaches. It's also not like they rolled out the red carpet for Shanahan that year to get him to sign on or anything. Nah, Shanahan definitely wanted those guys, it was just his GM that sabotaged him.
  8. That best offensive mind passed on Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson buddy. This was also when they had no qb on the roster, ie before they traded for Jimmy G in case you wanted to use that as an excuse.
  9. I like Saleh, but the rumors that Shanahan loves Darnold scare the crap out of me that we'll pass on Fields in favor of Darnold if we hire Saleh. So I'm undecided until the draft come around.
  10. He has great mechanics/accuracy, good arm strength, and great mobility. People bring up him being slow at reading defenses and holding onto the ball forever but these are minor nick picks and Lawrence had the same issues his 2nd year starting at Clemson, plus you can teach him those things. Lamar and Josh Allen also had these same concerns, but they also had garbage mechanics coming out of college and didn't have Fields natural accuracy. Him having great mechanics in college already shows how developed he is and eliminates one of the hurdles of developing a qb. He was also one of the highest rated high school qbs ever in Georgia, but yet has faced adversity and succeeded by him having to transfer to Ohio State from Georgia to get a fair shot at the qb job (also the highest rated qb ever to attend Ohio State from a recruiting standpoint). Also has shown toughness playing hurt in both playoff games against Clemson. Also, next years qb class is weaker then this years. Rattler is nowhere near as developed as Fields or Lawrence were at this point in his career, and Howell is not as naturally gifted as either of them (lacks mobility and has an okay arm). Slovis isn't even worth talking about, guy has a noddle arm.
  11. Considering he drafted a qb in the 2nd round when Wentz was still considered a franchise qb at the time, he'd probably push for Fields at #2. So I'm a fan of the potential hire, especially with all these posters talking about how they know guys in the front office who say we're likely to just ride it out with Sam. Didn't think this would be such a huge issue, but the fact that the Jets might actually keep Sam and pass on Fields is probably the dumbest thing I've heard and makes me seriously doubt Douglas as a GM.
  12. MPH, is important. Josh Allen wouldn't be as good as he is now if he had a noddle. He'd be a lot like Ryan Fitzpatrick or old Philip Rivers if he had a weak arm. But none of this really applies to Fields, cause he has a pretty good arm. It's not Josh Allen level, but it's better then Cousins, Darnolds, etc. And what makes it even less important is that his mobility would make up for him having a weaker arm, which once again he doesn't even have. These guys are blind if they think he has a weak arm.
  13. Texans player: McNair has track record of racially insensitive comments By Noah Feit October 28, 2017 06:38 PM, Updated October 28, 2017 08:17 PM Houston Texans tackle Duane Brown Isaiah J. Downing USA TODAY HOUSTON Houston Texans owner and University of South Carolina alum Bob McNair has a questionable history of racially insensitive comments, according to one of his players. During an interview with Pro Football Talk, Texans tackle Duane Brown pointed out two instances from the past where McNair made potentially controversial comments on racially-sensitive issues. McNair is currently under fire after his comments referring to NFL players as “inmates” became public, according to multiple reports. McNair said “we can’t have the inmates running the prison” during a meeting of NFL owners about players who protest by kneeling during the national anthem, according to an ESPN report. On Friday, Brown said “he’s not surprised by,” McNair’s “inmates” comment. Brown’s interview with profootballtalk.nbcsports.com came before McNair addressed Texans players about his “inmates comment” Saturday. Although McNair has issued two public apologies, Brown said the owner has a track record of making comments on racial issues that might not be popular or well received. Brown recalled one comment McNair made following the 2008 election of former President Barack Obama. He also pointed to another McNair comment in 2014, when former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA for making racist comments. “He came to talk to the team,” Brown told profootballtalk.nbcsports.com about McNair, following Obama’s first election. “He was visibly upset about it. He said, ‘I know a lot of y’all are happy right now, but it’s not the outcome that some of us were looking for.’ That was very shocking to me.” After the Sterling scandal, Brown said McNair addressed the team again. “The message was more to be careful who you have private conversations with, because things that you think are confidential can spread like wildfire,” Brown said to profootballtalk.nbcsports.com. “In my mind, it would probably have been better if he said ‘don’t be a racist’ instead of ‘be a racist in private and make sure it doesn’t get out.’ ” Friday, in response to the “inmates” comment, Brown told reporters he was “sickened” by McNair’s words. “I think the comments were disrespectful, I think it was ignorant, I think it was embarrassing,” Brown said. “I think it angered a lot of players, including myself. We put our bodies and minds every time we step on the field. To use an analogy of inmates in a prison, I would say they’re disrespectful.” The Texans had no comment on the quotes attributed by Brown to McNair, according to profootballtalk.nbcsports.com. It would be fair to characterize Brown’s relationship with McNair as uneasy. Brown returned to the team Monday after his season-long holdout over a contract dispute. The three-time Pro Bowl selection missed six games while holding out for a new deal from the Texans, which he did not receive. Brown was also one of the NFL players to protest during the playing of the national anthem last season, raising a fist at the end of its playing before one game last season. Brown was the only Texans player to protest in 2016. He told profootballtalk.nbcsports.com that, after the protest, McNair “didn’t have anything to say to me.” McNair is an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump, who is a fierce critic of players kneeling during the anthem, and offered his solution to the issue during a recent visit to South Carolina. In 2016, McNair donated $4.5 million to Trump and out of all of the NFL owners McNair was the biggest donor to Trump, according to texasmonthly.com. Several prominent former South Carolina and Clemson players are on the Texans’ roster. Former Gamecocks include Jadeveon Clowney, Jonathan Joseph and Bruce Ellington, while Houston’s offense is led by former Tigers Deshaun Watson and Deandre Hopkins. Fellow Clemson alums D.J. Reader, Carlos Watkins and Marcus Gilchrist are also on the Texans.
  14. Justin Fields: ‘At least I didn’t swing and miss’ April 8, 2020by Tom Orr Subtlety is a lost art in the modern world. All too often, people feel compelled to go way over-the-top for attention when a less-obvious route would be far better. Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields has seemingly taken that lesson to heart. Tuesday evening, Fields tweeted a video of himself on the golf course. It’s not clear who he was playing with, but last year the team’s quarterbacks went golfing together during the summer. “We did a little QB golf outing in the summer and it was my first time golfing, actually golfing instead of going to Top Golf and stuff like that,” Fields said last November. “So it was pretty fun and I wasn’t as bad as I thought I would be. So I’ll probably pick it up more and more as I grow and get older because I definitely like the game of golf and I wasn’t bad at it. I think I was pretty much the best player on my team, I think.” Fields is something of a natural athlete. In addition to being a Heisman finalist as a football player, he was also a highly-touted prep baseball prospect. So it’s not surprising to see him excel on the golf course as well. But the subtlety to his Twitter game is awe-inspiring. The tweet he sent read, “Got a lot of work to do, but at least I didn’t swing and miss.” Any beginner who has been to the driving range knows the humiliation that comes with a whiff. But Ohio State football fans with long memories might remember the phrase “swing and miss” from another context. On December 22, 2018, Tate Martell tweeted and later deleted, “word of advice: don’t swing and miss… especially not your second time.” It was not too tough to figure out that those words had an audience of one: Justin Fields. That was right when Fields was contemplating a transfer from Georgia to OSU, and Martell was pretty clearly not thrilled about it. While he later denied that the tweet was aimed at Fields, in the days before the Rose Bowl he also said, “Why would I leave for somebody who hasn’t put a single second into this program yet? I’ve put two years of working my ass off into something that I’ve been praying for and dreaming of my whole life. To just run from somebody that hasn’t put a single second into workouts or anything like that and doesn’t know what the program is all about, there’s not a chance.” Of course, Martell did put his name in the Transfer Portal less than two weeks later. While Fields placed third in the Heisman voting and led the Buckeyes to the College Football Playoff, Martell finished 2019 with just seven yards passing and seven more on the ground for Miami. This isn’t the first time Fields has taken a subtle jab at Martell on social media, either. Shortly after transferring to OSU, Fields followed Martell’s sister, who frequently posts risque photos on Instagram. Fields did not follow Martell himself.
