The Straits of Glibaalke

The 2013 NFL schedule will be released tonight and we can finally put 2012 to rest and start figuring out what the hell will happen in the new season.

Jim Harbaugh will grab the schedule, caress it lovingly, and immediately start game planning for the first opponent next September. Maybe the second opponent, too. Maybe the whole damn season. Our coach. What a madman. If it wasn’t for football, Jim would be unemployable.

But we do have football, and next week we’ll get a bird’s eye peek into the 49ers’ draft room as Trent Baalke sits impassively at the head table, while Harbaugh sits to his right, wearing out a padded rocking chair and fidgeting around like a kid waiting for the recess bell. If I were a woman, I might call this scene “adorable.” Even hardened criminal type women use this word!

But adorable is not a word guys use very much, if ever. Guy words have to have some sort of grunt to them and adorable just doesn’t cut the mustard. If you have trouble remembering these things, here’s a 4 G tip: girls gush, guys grunt. That about sums up the entire history of communication between the sexes.

Marriage counselors hate this kind of inside poop, because if men and women knew how simple it was, they wouldn’t need counselors, who wouldn’t make money for themselves and the divorce lawyers who profit from the end results of their counselations. What a racket!

Anyway, the next time you find yourself a victim of female agushion and are avoiding a domestic abuse response by storming out of the house and screaming silently: “WTF!”, just remember the 4 G’s and walk back inside with a smile on your face and a grunt in your heart. It’s a winner. Of course, you could try cultivating being a nice guy with an occasional adorable tossed in, but it’s a lot of work and not much fun. Ask Tony Dungy if he’s having any fun and you’ll see his face go blank and his eyes start searching the ceiling for clues. Take your pick, though, it’s your life. You can ruin it anyway you want.

The Draft begins one week from today and, as noted yesterday, Baalke started off the obligatory pre-draft presser by assuring the beat reporters he wouldn’t be giving them any straight answers. The reporters could have simply gone, “Okay, see ya!”, and left the room, but they didn’t. They went ahead and asked questions that wouldn’t be answered honestly.

How adorable is that?!

Among the curved, or crooked to you tin foil hat types, answers Baalke foisted off was that the 49ers wouldn’t necessarily draft a safety. This isn’t actually a lie, strangely enough, since there really aren’t any alternatives to maybe we will and maybe we won’t. This Baalke guy is getting pretty good at his job.

    I posted this late last night and Skeebs has his new thread up.
    I was very moved and this is worth a look so I’m reposting in case you missed it

    Hard to believe NFL Network has a 3 hour long schedule release show tonight.
    This might be as big a waste of time as the 8 hour Super Bowl pregame shows.
    They’ll find a way to drag it out so you’re still watching in hour 3.
    Just think not long ago we learned of the schedule when it was printed in the newspaper.
    Anything to sell products through commercials.

    bullit- I’ll read the schedule when it is posted.

    I love adorable women, especially blonds with big… always been a weakness for me.

    Off topic but knowing there are a lot of music fans here if you have vinyl records this is what the turntable has evolved to and synchs with your PC through FM. No need for the BIC or Garrard turntables of yesterday.
    First time I looked at a turntable in 25 years and I have boxes of Vinyl albums. You can buy one for $70 on Amazon

    On the Niners official website they have pix from yesterday’s Pro Day but don’t identify players. We know that Nate Montana
    was there but did not wear his Dad’s retired number opting to be
    Bono/Rattay.
    A coincidence or a cryptic message is that Zach Ertz worked out when he said beforehand he would just visit. Either by choice or the equipment guy was sending a subliminal message Erst wore #46.
    I do not think it was because he liked Tom Holmoe.

    Since this is the last season for “the Stick” it would be appropriate if the Niners played the Seahags on that Sunday Night week 17.
    Something tells me that game will be very significant in the standings.

  11. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Man, I recently looked at my box of vinyl records and found, right on top, a Japanese Jimi Hendrix album, light blue clear vinyl I had no idea I bought. I haven’t looked in that box in close to 30 years. 3 other boxes were lost due to water damage . . .
    Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!
    .
    Most of those records were bought at Rod’s Used Records in San Carlos.

  12. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    And of course the old Town and Country Records on 4th ave in San Mateo.

  13. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    I don’t know what’s more pathetic. The fact that Kiper and McShay will be conducting the first ever Twitter mock draft at the top of the hour. Or the fact that I’ll be monitoring it intensely.

  14. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    What in the hell is going on with the Giant’s pitching?
    Cain is getting lit up for the second game in a row.
    All of a sudden the strength of the team looks very shaky.

  15. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Obviously, Cain was not able!

  16. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Gallardo gets busted for a DUI just two days ago. Today he pitches a gem and hits a 2-run homer off of Cain. Too bad Gallardo didn’t crash and bust his collarbone. That seems to be happening a lot lately. At least that’s what they tell me.

  17. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Too bad yer not his driver, Dennis. He’d be wrapped around your 40′ tree.

  18. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    If the Niners draft a WR with their first pick I’m giving up Christmas altogether.

  19. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Parts of the schedule re being leaked
    According to Barrows
    “For the second straight year, the 49ers will open the season against Green Bay, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. The game will be at Candlestick Park on Sept. 8 with the kickoff at 1:25 p.m.”

    That would make for a tough and most challenging opener

  20. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Rogers has already beaten Craig Dahl over the middle for two TDs. 14-0 Pack.

  21. winderNo Gravatar says:

    I like the idea of getting GB early on, maybe Rodger’s timing will be a little off.

    dennis – hope you are feeling better through modern medicine. We are too old to be braking stuff.

    Seems like we go to NO every year now. That just don’t seem right.

  24. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The only potential cold weather game is Monday Night 11/24 against the Redskins.
    Dec 15 at Tampa for Rob

  25. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Week 11 to 16 is the toughest stretch of games although the first 5 games involve 4 playoff teams.
    Nobody said it’d be easy.

  26. robNo Gravatar says:

    BULLIT ! yup ! i’ll be there when we take on the bucs dec 15th ! i can’t wait and keep checking to see when tickets go on sale !

  27. robNo Gravatar says:

    I SEE our schedule just came out ! the only issue i have is this ! i thought the season/home opener was supposed to be a big game ! considering we are a superbowl team even more so ! if that’s the case , what’s up with opening vs. green bay ? at least they could have given us atlanta , seattle or new england ! i mean somebody who isn’t a complete pushover for chrissakes!

  28. robNo Gravatar says:

    i say we go 13-3

  29. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Culliver is becoming one of my favorite players. I don’t agree with him but in this PC world it’s nice to hear one speak his mind.

  30. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    This from a guy who scored a 6 on the Wonderlich.
    .
    Brilliant minds and all . . .

  31. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    There is actually a betting line out for game 1 per Ninerantion
    “BetOnline.com was one of the first on the scene with odds for Week 1 2013. They opened the 49ers and Packers with San Francisco sitting as a 4 1/2 favorite “

  32. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Larry Grant just received a 4 game suspension according to Barrows thru PFT.

  33. robNo Gravatar says:

    gawd i hope gulliver gets his act together asap !

  34. robNo Gravatar says:

    ok , so you hear all the time about quarterbacks buying 0-linemen a watch ! maybe in a like move the defensive backs coach should buy culliver a muzzle !

  35. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Hmmm. Maybe a shock collar, triggered by the sound of his own voice?

  36. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    They should add 3 players to the squad from the six picks they have from 93-180
    My picks would be:
    Tyrann Mathieu CB
    Kyle Juszczyk Hback/FB/TE
    Marcus lattimore RB
    AJ Klein LB
    Josh Evans FS
    Jake Knott LB
    Duke Williams SS
    Aaron Dobson WR
    Knile Davis RB
    Levine Toilolo TE
    Joseph Fauria TE

    If the FO decides Mathieu is too much trouble I would sonsider two undersized slot CBs to play against teams with pesky slot receivers. Nickell Robey U$C and
    Steve Williams Cal. These are nickel corners who can blanket the slot receivers. Williams is 5’9″ and Robey is 5’7″ so they will should be around in the 6th round.
    Obviously picks might be dictated by who the Nioners pick earlier on the first 2 days of the draft.

  37. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    AJ Klein could be a steal if available in a middle round.

  38. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Kevin Kline won the Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for a “A Fish Called Wanda” (1988).
     
    “It’s K-K-K-Ken! C-c-c-coming to k-k-k-kill me! How you gonna c-c-c-catch me, K-K-K-Ken?”

  39. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    “A Fish Called Wanda” very underrated comedy. Kline is a psychopath playing Otto.
    Jaime Lee has nice tatas with genes from her mom.
    ‘trading Places” is also one of the alltime great comedies also featuring Jaime Lee Curtis.

  40. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Berger

    Both Klein and Knott are smart old school football players and tough guys like Justin Smith.
    Need guys like that to balance off the mad talent physically gifted knuckleheads like Culliver.

  41. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Mike Mayock has Jesse Williams ranked No. 97 overall. That’s the top of the fourth round.
     
    Like I said before, he’s a fat POS. He sucks. If the Niners select Jesse with either of their first two picks I’ll break something else. And I’m running outta limbs here…

  42. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    It’s looking more and more likely that the Jets will trade Revis to the Bucs for their 13th overall and whatever else they can swindle from Tampa Bay. That’s the spot where we could move up into if Baalke so chooses. Maybe trade with the Jets now? A three-way? No thanks. I’m a little busy now. Ask me again later.

  43. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I think the most intriguing name in the draft is Margus Hunt. IMO, he is the biggest boom or bust prospect.

  44. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Margus Hunt will turn 26 in July which is a factor.
    He is a late second round talent but someone will reach big time for him (Tim Tebow type reach).
    I just remember one play in the Senior Bowl where he appeared totally lost and the offense just ran around him. The question is can he learn the game fast enough to be instinctive because all this is not natural to him and the growing pains will be hard to stomach on a playoff caliber team.

  45. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    That someone who “reaches” just very well could be the Niners. I just saw him interviewed yesterday. Seems like a nice young man. He blocked a lot of kicks. I know that. Might even hold the record. Did you know that Hunt is from Estonia? Did you also know? Only 16% of Estonians profess belief in some form of a god. That’s the lowest belief of all countries that were studied. Well, believe you me. If we draft Hunt and he pulls another A.J. Jenkins his rookie year I’ll be yelling GOD DAMMIT!

  46. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    You would only be a 16 per center if you yelled GOD DAMMIT in Estonia!

  47. winderNo Gravatar says:

    I don’t even know where Estonia is. I guess I will have to look it up. But thanks guys for all the info on potential Niners. I’ve only heard of a few of these guys.

  48. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Hunt reminds me of Igor Oshansky
    DT from Oregon who was drafted in second round by the Chargers.
    Igor was only 6’5″ but he was a basketball player from the Ukraine
    that was also new to football.
    He had an average career lasting through 2011.
    If it were up to me I wouldn’t think about Hunt until pick #63 simply because he’s older and raw.

  49. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- Igor Olshanky was an awesome D-lineman. He was absolutely unstoppable. Then he suffered a knee injury and was never the same. I would say some of your numbers charts are worthy of nothing more than shoving them up your butt.

  50. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I would definitely draft Hunt with our #34 pick except one thing, he is already 25, and will be 26 at the start of the season. Because of that I would not consider him until our 2nd pick in the 2nd round.

  51. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Olshansky had 12.5 career sacks and averaged 20 tackles a year.
    You are entitled to think he’s great even if he was ordinary and nothing spetacular IMO.
    I happened to follow his career closely because he went to my high school.

  52. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Berger

    What induced your 9:42 post?
    Stop fixating on my tush.

  53. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Olshansky was 3-4 DE. He did his job very well. Merriman and Phillips got the stats.
     
    This is for you bullit:
    http://youtu.be/-jB_QM73Slk

  54. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    What induced my 9:42 post was I thought Olshansky was one of the best DEs in football until he got hurt. Its OK if you disagree, but when I read your comment about him being average I had to comment.
     
    That D-line SD had was awesome. And then Olshansky and the NT got hurt. Then Merriman got hurt. About the same time, or the next year maybe, their O-line got old and hurt too. SD went downhill fast.

  55. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    And then there was the Norv Turner factor.

  56. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Revis to the Bucs is now official. Pending a physical. That makes beating TB that much harder. Rob’s gonna be pissed if we lose to the Bucs.

  57. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Let me amend that statement. We’ll all be pissed, but Rob will have first-hand knowledge of getting pissed on and being pissed off.

  58. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    You think the Bucs will have Revis shadow A.J. Jenkins? He’ll have to head over to the Niner sideline and find ’em in street clothes first.

  59. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    The good thing for Rob would be its better to pissed off than pissed on!

  60. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Somebody better warn him not to piss on Bullit’s tush!

  61. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    That Tampa Bay game will come sandwiched between playing the Seahags and the dirty birds.
    10am start and farthest we have to travel in the continental US.
    It has trap written all over it.
    That is unless their QB Freeman self destructs being off target.
    Kolb, Carson Palmer and even Tebow had a higher QB rating than Freeman last season.

  62. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Since you’re obsessing Berger…
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kY84MRnxVzo

  63. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- That was great!

  64. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Getting back to Margus Hunt for a moment. I’d be shocked if he lasted to pick 61. So if they’re going to select him, it’ll have to be with either of their first two picks or via trade. I’d much rather they draft Hunt > Jesse Williams. Hell. I’d rather have Roseanne play the nose than Williams. She’s a bonus attraction. Roseanne could sing the National Anthem prior to the game.

    Tell me this pic of Harbaugh isn’t spot on Peter Boyle about to stick it to Madeline Kahn in “Young Frankenstein.” http://tinyurl.com/d5dh2l8

  66. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    For those in the area, a 49ers draft special will be on CSNBA at high noon. Don’t expect to see Gary Cooper, however.

  67. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Dennis

    Goldencents to win in the Derby.
    Same trainer of one of the greatest names of all time for a horse I’ll Have Another.

  68. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Rick Pitino owns a small part (5%) of Goldencents. Pitino’s had a pretty good year already. I have serious doubts about that horse getting a 1 1/4, but we’ll see…I’ll Have Another was named so because his owner always wanted another cookie, not another drink. So the name wasn’t that great.

  69. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Damn you ruined it for me.
    Let the myths stand.
    What next no Tooth Fairy? I was banking on the cash as I lose my teeth.

  70. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Pending a physical the Jest get this year’s 13th pick and a 4th round pick nest year that can improve to a 3rd rounder.
    That’s almost what the Niners got for Smith.
    Revis’ new contract with the Bucs:
    “In an intriguing twist, it’s a pay-as-you-go, $16 million annual contract. None of it is guaranteed.

    It therefore becomes a one-year deal with a series of five one-year, team-held options. If the Bucs choose to keep Revis, they’ll pay him $16 million per year for the privilege of doing so. If/when the Bucs decide that Revis isn’t earning his keep, the Bucs can cut him.”

    $1 mil per game is a lot to pay for a corner.

  71. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Sorry to disappointed you with the truth behind the name, but horse’s are my business. Well, them and a little monkey too.
     
    “That’s almost what the Niners got for Smith.” Surely you jest in what the Jest’s just received.

  72. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    The NYJ enjoy all the negative publicity.
    For a Team that’s done jack since the dawn of time, they get more press for bad moves than good the good Teams do for making positive moves.
    Honk honk, beep beep, clown car coming through.

  73. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    OK, I have to plead ignorance or plead guilty, but I have to plead to someone…how long has Skeeber’s had that countdown clock until draft party going? I just now saw it. They don’t call me “Mr. Perceptive” for a reason. Seriously. People don’t call me that. Now you see why.

  74. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    The Jets still need major help. Major help = more picks. How bout we move up to 13 and take Sheldon Richardson? As much as we need help at safety, I think Richardson is a better football player than Brenda Vaccaro. Richardson and D.J. Swearinger or Phillip Thomas in the 2nd rd works fine and dandy for me.

  75. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Same here Del, I didn’t pick up on it until you mentioned it.
    Draft Party at my place Thursday nite.
    My Party Clock will begin at least an hour earlier to allow for a few cold ones to kick in.
    Now the NYJ have 2 Picks to screw up in the Top 15.
    Entertainment you can’t put a price tag on.
    Matt Barkley?
    Ziggy Ansah?
    Someone we never heard of?
    2 someone’s we never heard of?

  76. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I’d prefer to stand pat at 31 and see who falls.
    If nothing of value lands on out slot I’d deal back for a 2014 1st Rd Pick.
    Then we use 34 and the remaining Picks to move up for extra 2 and 3 Picks?
    Easier and cheaper once we’re out of Rd 1.
    Won’t shock me if we take a shot though.
    Should make for an interesting evening Thursday night.

  77. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I like David Amerson as a FS option too.
    He could easily be had in Rd 2, assuming we miss on Reid or decide he isn’t worth the higher Pick.

  78. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    No need for us to reach.
    We could possibly land a stud DE or get lucky with TE Eifert just waiting until 31.
    Plenty of things will happen that nobody will be prepared for.
    Especially with all the Teams holding extra 1st Rd Picks.

  79. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    One thing every Team needs first and foremost is a QB.
    Don’t see any QB in this Group making an immediate impact either, which means someone will reach.
    Holding 31 until the drama settles in is how we bargain into next year if need be.

  80. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I believe Baalke will find gems between Rds 2-4 anyway, possibly into the later Rds too.
    We can afford project Picks now.
    Many Teams want instant impact.
    Scouting and patience wins on Draft Weekend IMO.
    I’d love to get a bookend for Aldon and, add speed in the Secondary.
    I have no doubt that Baalke will find the right pieces.

  81. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    How nice of you to notice, Dennis. I put it up Saturday morning.

  82. robNo Gravatar says:

    we’re going to beat the piss out of tampa !

  83. robNo Gravatar says:

    revis was still a good move for the bucs imo ! they are also the team that landed goldson don’t forget !imho their secondary just went from horrible to good ! before they signed revis , they also had 30 million in cap space to play with btw !

  84. robNo Gravatar says:

    margus hunt to me looks like a bit of a gamble ! maybe an early three or late 2nd for us since we have so many picks to play with !

  85. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Now they have to learn to stop the run Rob.
    They’re so concerned with stopping the pass that I think they went overboard.
    The Saints and Falcons don’t run with any regularity so perhaps it’s a good move for now but, you have to stop the run to win in this League.
    Steven Jackson could change the landscape within that Division now, we’ll see.

  86. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I’m intrigued with the Discus Olympian from GB, Lawrence Okoye too.
    Much younger than Margus but also much more raw in terms of football talent.
    These guys are about PR first and foremost.
    A Team like SF is a big draw in Europe.
    Dr York is also a major player in the NFLE expansion.
    So, putting the pieces together might suggest, we could be in line for a little bit of a reach Pick with either guy.
    Okoye could be a Comp Pick venture late.
    We’ll see?
    He’s only 21.

  87. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I read recently that Ziggy Ansah has some Teams wondering about his age too.
    I wouldn’t reach for Margus.
    He’s interesting at best.
    Certainly not a polished football player at this point.
    With our Coaching, he could benefit in a limited role.

  88. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Like JPP in NY, a good athlete that is coachable has a chance.
    All comes down to specifics with each Team scheme.

  89. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Nice thing about the Rookie Cap.
    You can experiment some without risk to Cap implications.

  90. robNo Gravatar says:

    NJ

    i was interested in okoye too ! imo it’s another wait and see thing with him !

    the bucs , can still address their needs imo ! they still have cap room and a mid 2nd and 3rd rd. pick to use this year ! don’t forget , they’re still a couple three years away from where we are ! inho they didn’t hurt themselves by signing revis !

    here’s a name for you … t.j. barnes GA tech ! heard anything on him ?

  91. robNo Gravatar says:

    NJ the bucs finished twenty something in total defense last year ! they were dead last vs. the past … but the best in the league vs. the run !

  92. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Yep,TJ is another huge DLineman.
    I considered him as an option at the NT position but picked other guys ahead of him.
    I like quite a few of the DL options in this Class.
     
    I have a feeling Baalke will shoot for the skill positions early and sift through the depth this WR/DL Class affords later.
    There are plenty of options this year.
    Excellent Class to shop for the pieces we’re in need of.
     
    Another concern with Revis is the knee of course.
    He’s a beast when he’s healthy.
    No doubt TB went hard on their Secondary shopping spree.
    Schiano turned Rutgers around.
    He knows what he’s doing.
    Problem now is, maintaining Cap sanity and getting a QB.
    Freeman isn’t bad, he’s much like Alex.
    Shows signs of brilliance then, at times, he comes unglued.

  93. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Schiano was responsible for Ray Rice.
    His scheme is similar to ours.
    He likes a solid ground game and throws from it.
    They’re gonna make it interesting once they stop the other QBs in that Division.

  94. robNo Gravatar says:

    oh well ! we’ll see with freeman ! the good news is we have harbaugh and kaepernick !

  95. robNo Gravatar says:

    i’m guessing ur right about barnes ! can’t wait to see what baalke and harbaugh make happen on draft day ! i just hope we get more aldon smiths and kaepernicks than aj. jenkinses !

  96. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    What’s with the Liverpool soccer player who keeps biting his opponents? Just Bizarre.

  97. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    He’s hungry for victory, Berger.

  98. robNo Gravatar says:

    or maybe he just likes the way they taste !

  99. robNo Gravatar says:

    and in other news …
    ” i don’t snort coke , i just really like the way it smells ! ”
    lol

  100. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    2 Small School guys I like at DE/OLB are Ty Powell from Harding and David Bass MO Western State too.
    Guys like them can be had later.

  101. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Berger I have our Kicker too.
    Zach Brown is how he’s known, real last name is Ramirez – Portland State

  102. robNo Gravatar says:

    omg NJ do we really want another david bass pick here !
    lol

  103. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bass not Baas Rob.
    DE in College. Great motor, excellent sack production.

  104. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I’m sorta hoping Baalke takes a shot at DT Jared Smith from NH.
    Can’t have enough Smith’s on D can we?

  105. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Got a low mileage DT from Miami named Darius Smith too.
    JUCO transfer that played 2 years for the ‘Canes

  106. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Darius is a space eater at 6’1-1/2″ 334lbs.
    Likely won’t get Drafted but, ya never know.

  107. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I also like a DE from W Kentucky,
    Quanterus Smith, 6’5″ 250.
    He too could come later in the Draft.

  108. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Built much like Aldon too.

  109. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I’d be more than happy to add Datone Jones at 31 too.
    Smiths’ and Jones would work for me too, if he slides through the Field of course.

  110. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I would actually prefer Datone to Margus at this point.

  111. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I see Datone as a heavier Ahmad Brooks.
    He’s got the flexibility to play both 4-3/3-4 fronts too.
    Wouldn’t mind him at all.

  112. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    What’s the deal with Datone’s neck problems?

  113. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I wonder what happened to my picture?

  114. robNo Gravatar says:

    i’m just hoping for elam 1 cyprien 2 and or hankins 1 williams 2 at this point !

  115. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I mispelled my email address and got my picture changed!

  116. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    The neck issues I know of belonged to Jarvis Jones the LB from UGA?
    Haven’t heard of any neck issues related to Datone.
    He broke a foot in College that I’m aware of, missed significant time too.
    But he’s a pretty highly rated guy from everything I’ve found on him.

  117. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Unleashed by an aggressive defense implemented by new head coach Jim Mora, however, Jones emerged as one of the Pac-12’s most productive defensive linemen as a senior, notching career highs in tackles (57), tackles for loss (17.5) and sacks (six) to earn all-conference honors.

    Some people prefer taking weight loss tea, appetite suppressant,
    or fat binder products. It also been said that these
    food must be eaten only when they are cold, fresh from the chiller or a refrigerator.

    Most healthy programs you can find online or through your local health stores
    are boring and lack the magic to keep you motivated all throughout,
    thus you do not end up achieving your goal.

    Other popular choices are jojoba oil, olive oil, and
    almond oil. The oil is chock full of nutrients which help overall health, in addition to that of the
    hair. Almond oil is another example of a natural substance that has been in use
    for thousands of years.

    Here is my web site :: almond oil uses

    Omega-3 deficiency can also be linked to poor healing of wounds, flaking skin, dandruff and excema.
    Has your neck firming cream failed you and you now have resorted to wearing
    clothes with big collars or turtlenecks to hide unsightly neck wrinkles.
    Lastly, I looked at the price, and saw it was less than 10 bucks.
