  1. Time to clean house! First question for all GM & HC candidates: How will you get Denzel Mims going?
  2. Years ago when Al Groh was HC he was asked about his players fighting each other and said something like “I told them that if fighting helped us win, we’d practice it.” Funny stuff.
  3. Maybe JD is holding off on bringing in a vet in order to avoid this scenario: Zach does OK in camp but the vet does even better. If that came to pass, then starting Zach anyway would contradict all of the “best players play” talk from the coach, but sitting Zach because he’s not the best QB in camp would delay his development. Maybe JD and Saleh want to avoid that scenario and make sure that Zach is the best at his position.
  4. If you did your research you’d know that Harris’s foot size makes him undraftable.
  5. That’s hilarious...He was always “Stan Blinka” but after that very game Walt Michaels defended Blinka to the press, saying he’s not a dirty player, etc. I was a kid and laughed when I heard Michaels refer to him as Stanley. From that moment on he was “Stanley Blinka” in my mind.
  6. The three possibilities seem to be these: (1) Keep Sam, pass on Wilson. (2) Pick Wilson, ship out Sam. (3) Pick Wilson, and keep Sam (at least for the 2021 season). All 3 options have some potentially serious cost/downside. If the reports that there is some serious internal disagreement among the braintrust about whether to go with (1) or (2), then I can see JD going with (3) and letting things play out. The downside of a QB controversy may be overblown (for 2021) given the kind of locker room they’ll have and given the fact that neither of the QBs who would be battling it
  7. Agree 100%. So much so that I wonder if items 1 & 2 in the OP mean that the Texans are preparing not only for a possible trade, but also for the possibility of cutting him.
  8. I think the bold is really significant. Assuming Shanahan and Lafleur see the same things in Darnold, why would JD pass on an opportunity to replace Darnold with that #2 pick? If finding a QB to run that system at a high level were easy, why are the 49ers still looking for one and willing to pay the price to trade up for one (a price that would probably kill JD to have to pay in some future draft in order to move up and take a QB). I think the simplest explanation is that JD will not trade the pick but will take a QB at 2.
  9. If JD has decided to keep Darnold and his plan is to try to get max offers for the 2nd overall pick, wouldn’t it be smart for him to let “league circles” think that he’s ready (and even planning) to use that #2 pick on Wilson? My point is that Pauline might be right about what the league thinks, AND that this is a result of JD’s plan.
