  1. We’re gonna have to get together and work, get him right. It’s a little different playing NFL tackles, but once he gets the hang of it, he’s gonna be the real deal.”

     

    hearing this from Bosa....what cy does this off season will be telling for sure

    Thinking about our situation after watching the game yesterday and seeing trends around the league... I'm actually pretty happy Haskins seems to be a boom or bust-type QB.  Haskins just doesn't strike me as the type to hover around the average level for years.  Either he hits and we're set with a top 10 QB for the next 15 years, or he busts and we start over with a clean break.  I would hate to be in the QB purgatory position the 49ers, Bears, Raiders, etc. are in, where the QB is average at best and it's unlikely you'll win the SB with him, but there's a significant risk to moving on and ending up in a much worse position than before.   And even if you did decide to move on, it's extremely tough to do so because you're likely too good to finish with a top 10 pick.

    Exactly why we didn’t give cousins the bank

  3. Ultimately, you want to have a clear vision in mind for who you are as a franchise and what it is you do.  I prefer the coach centric approach so I am biased.  Put the coach in charge...he has sold you on his vision...let him execute it.  
     

    why not a gm?  I’d say the coach is a level removed from ownership.  That builds checks and balances.  Give the coach the power.  The gm buys the groceries based on the shopping list.  The coach does the cooking.  :)

    I agree that our DL will be more than set, especially if we draft Chase. 

     

    But I wouldn't downplay the need for good LBs for a 4-3. We have a couple guys who could be decent in their roles, but we still have holes to fill. When teams are killing us with TEs and slot guys because our LBs aren't very good in coverage we won't think it's a "champagne problem". 

    perhaps.  I’m looking at the giants model that beat the pats.  A relentless front 4...which we will have, masks a ton of problems.  We have a dl that can win now in del Rios man up philosophy.  A front rotation of ion, Payne, Allen, settle with ends rotating of chase, sweat & Kerrigan is goin to be relentless.  I’d love to coach this def right now with what we have.  A real pro like del rio is gonna turn these guys into all stars.  I’m excited 


  5. Built to be a decent 4-3 already....waaaaay wrong pieces for the 3-4.  Save me the we are only in base defense x percentage of time.  Scheme taught = scheme failure from jump.  Ditch the 3-4, let’s go back to the 4-3 and attack please

    So, I’ve seen consistent growth in Haskins to date. The accuracy issues were infuriating, but they were the right reads and they were reached quickly. If he keeps processing things quicker and quicker, I’m hopeful he’ll have time to be more mindful of his mechanics. It’s kind of nice to see this sort of incremental progress.

    Agreed.  People are picking this guy apart...rightfully so...he’s an nfl qb.  In the grand scheme of things, his head seems to be ahead of his mechanics and that’s actually good in this case given his physical talent.

    How many years does it take, man?

     

    Every team has pieces.  Teams that have both GM and head coach that work together have pieces that work together optimally.

     

    They couldn’t even do that with Gruden, a guy handpicked, with the Tampa connection and all.  It’s never happening, bro.

     

    Thing is, our emperors been naked for a long time.  Regardless, the masses now see that our franchise was naked...not close.  It takes time to defeat a culture of “meism” ...rooted from our love affair with free agency.  For decades there’s been no sense of family.  It’s been “come get a check” and bounce.  You don’t develop anything that way.  You certainly can’t maintain any identity that way when you’re perpetually chasing your tail.  
     

    this team is building again via the draft.  While that’s all well and good, we’ve actually done quite well at it....bonus!... And we’re lucky enough to have a youngster calling those shots.  
     

    bruce has gotta go.  But he won’t til dan is convinced he can stadium without him.  F politics
