The Price of Admission

OTAs are in the vicinity — around the corner, down the street, across the field, up the tree — somewhere out there. You can find them if so inclined.

Not that your search will be rewarded, even if successful. Organized Team Activities. Whenever you see a title this vague and boring, you know lawyers have been busy diluting the meaning of existence.

Pimping for Kaepernick is all the rage among the media moralists and PC police these days. Not sure why these fellows are so desperate to find him a job. Or are they just more interested in complaining about it and speculating endlessly about the integrity and awful motives of the owners, hinting at a grand racially motivated collusion.

Apparently, the NFL owners are required to give this prima donna douchebag a job whether they like him or not, and whether he’s any good or not. Seattle is reportedly ready to give him a minimum salary backup job, which would be hilarious. Kaepernick in the humble shadow of Russell Wilson? I’d pay to see that. Can’t wait to hear how the negotiations broke down. Somewhere out there, RGIII is thinking, “Hey, I’m black, too. Why no love for me?”

The blogosphere seems a little jaded and apathetic this offseason. The hiring of Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch should be generating the same kind of buzz as the hiring of Jim Harbaugh six years ago, but it hasn’t. We can probably thank the specter of Jed York for the muted excitement, looming over the franchise like a deadly virus.

August can’t come soon enough.

    Compare the pro-BLM anti-cop print versus Blaine, or to Cutler, or to any forcibly retired white QB.

    A badge of honor to be anti-white. Racist to be pro-white because to the libs/Spit/Chuck that is a dog whistle to be anti-black, anti-latino, anti-asian, anti-LGBT.

    OK for others to be tribal. Not whitey.

    There’s nothing pro-white about my post, Tom, but you do have to wonder if the media would be pounding the moral outrage gavel for Jay Cutler if he’d knelt for the Anthem. I doubt it.

    I hope Seattle takes Kap, it couldn’t happen to a better franchise, and fan base. And yeah, August can’t come soon enough. I don’t know if it’s just me or not but the sports media has taken another ‘holier than thou’ stance when it comes PC issues. I certainly don’t need some hack telling me what’s right or wrong, they can all go F-off.

    Ouch. What will the moralists say now?

    Tony Dungy: “If people perceived Colin Kaepernick as a difference maker, as a guy who could be their starting quarterback and help them win games, he would be signed now and people would deal with the repercussions. If not, it’s not worth the headache, it’s not worth the distraction, it’s not worth the number of fans we would turn off.”

    IOW, it’s pretty simple folks, if you take off the blinders.

    FO provides no anguish this year. They are stellar. That explains the quiet.

    Incredible we got Adam Peters and Martin Mayhew. Especially RB coach Bobby Turner for bird dogging Joe Williams and shining the light so others could see.

    RB’s are instant payoff unless pass blocking on 3rd down is an issue. Williams value the most noticeable of entire draft class.

    If only you were zealous when Gabbert was here.
    He’s gone, time to move on and turn the page.

    RIP Len Rohde, a stalwart on the Oline during the late Kezar days.

    The name on his uniform says Rohde and not Rhode.

    Bucs sign Fitzpatrick as backup QB. Media squeals with indignation. Hahahaha.

    RIP Wayne Walker, the best Niner color analyst period and alo best local Bay Area sports anchor ever.

    Many great memories

    I’ll always associate Walker with the 1981 season. I can remember watching his pregame show every week, as the team just kept getting better and better. It was obvious that Walker really admired Walsh and was sort of a fan of the team. At some point in the second half of the season, he stated flat out that the 49ers would be favored in his opinion in every game from here on out, including the Super Bowl. For a team that had never won a championship, that was a magical year. RIP Wayne. See you on the flip side.

    Our version of Marshall Faulk? Joe Williams. All about making plays in space. A better fit with the outside zone. As injuries occur before trade deadline, Trent Brown traded to a new home? Gary Gilliam now higher in the RT depth chart?

  12. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    JAX great spot to look for a trade with Trent Brown their new RT.

    Robinson is ready to play a major role in the initiation of the team’s new offensive ground-and-pound identity that should feature heavy doses of RBs Leonard Fournette, Chris Ivory, and T.J. Yeldon. The Jaguars are in a comfortable position having a rookie in Robinson who is ready to make an impact at LT if needed, and the potential luxury of upgrading the LG spot if / when Albert decides to show up.
