  1. You think yelling and screaming is helping the team? Has it in 19 years?
  2. I think people around here need to understand football is a game of absolute patience. frustrated that the team has been a sideshow for years? No one can blame you. Frustrated with how the FO has been run? Preach. But a lot of this stuff doesnt get sorted over night. It’s all a process. Negativity permeates. Agents are aware of social media, as are teams. If you think players and agents aren’t aware of things that are said on Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and even ES itself you’re fooling yourselves. There is certainly room for some negativity as it pertains to this team. Things haven’t been functioning as needed for a very long period of time. But we help perpetuate the negativity surrounding the franchise. ”Then fix it”. Agreed. But if people are reading these forums to get a general feel (they are) then players and agents see the dysfunction from a mile away. Even the thread welcoming Alex Smith turned into a negative side show. People are 100% aware of this stuff. And the thought is, “damn, this team’s fans hate this team.” And then we sign players... because of the money we offer primarily. Im not saying be in love with everything, or not to voice concerns. I’d be hypocritical in saying that. But what we CAN do is be a bit more open minded with some moves and a little less, uhhh, dramatic with some of the moves. Granted, it’s an extremely SMALL part and not what will ultimately drive a franchise turnaround. We all know that. But we can do our part simply by not being rage filled schmucks (obviously this doesn’t apply to a lot of the posters here... but it does apply to a decent number)
  3. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    me too! Haha that night was a trip.
  4. I wouldn’t mind Grant coming back if he doesn’t find a better value if Baltimore passes now. But not passing a physical is... interesting.
  5. Not a whole lot out there that I’d be interested in. Richardson is one of the only non-team FA I want. I’d like Earl Thomas but that’s a financial pipe dream. Lets get ZB back ASAP though
  6. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    This thread is sad. Kudos to OP. He repeatedly said he’d be out when Cousins was, yet here he is, sticking with his team and cheering on the new guy. Wish the same could be said for the rest of the people in this thread. Looking forward to seeing what Smith can do.
  7. I’m not sure if you’re trying to counter what I said or agreeing - that’s probably on me. I’m tired. But, to reiterate, I’m not claiming the guy is the next coming of Art Monk. I’m just saying that the amount of **** he gets around here is comical. Our fan base wants guys who accept their roles and work their asses off for the team... and then when a guy does that it doesn’t matter. He is tremendously undervalued by the fan base. I agree he likely got a larger contract than what he brings, but I’m happy for him getting paid like that. But Grant is a guy that should always have a place on a NFL roster as long as he can still be consistent.
  8. Agreed its a bit much. But he was arguably our best receiver last season. i don’t get the disdain for that guy around here. Guy has played consistently for years. Is he a top tier NFL receiver that makes the “wow” plays? No. But he IS a good option to have on your team that is reliable to make catches when the team needs him.

    Man... $84M guaranteed is crazy. Now I’m even happier we got Smith.

    Because that's what many in this thread and others are making it? It shouldn't be. I think that was clear in my posts. But it is.
  11. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    But the the grapes are sour because of the way the situation was handled. Getting Smith was the best outcome we could have hoped for in the short term after they mishandled the whole thing, in my opinion. So, having said that, the sour shouldn't be part of a Kirk vs. Smith debate. Throw shade at the FO for their initial botch, sure. But I think they got this part right after the mega screw up. Doesn't "forgive" the mistake, but it's making the best of the bad situation.
  12. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Yes. Interchangeable. Watch them play. They play an extremely similar game. And I guess Kirk's year with Jackson, Garcon, Crowder, Davis, Reed, Thompson and a MUCH better OL than KC's last year doesn't count, right?
  13. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Still whining about the trade going on here, eh? I don't get it. I don't get why many here view Kirk as some God. I don't get why many here don't like Smith when they LOVED Kirk (The two are practically interchangeable skill set wise except for age). Sounds like sour grapes for the sake of sour grapes.
