It was only a matter of time.
For the past two years, Jed York has been quiet, almost invisible. Leaving Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch alone to do their jobs.
Over the weekend, however, word leaked out of 49er HQ that York had sold two seats in this year’s Draft Room for $22,000. Also, a package including a training session with Jimmy Garoppolo and a road trip with the team that fetched $29,000.
The dollar amounts are both ridiculously high and meaninglessly low. High for the bozos buying in, low for the “charity” getting the dough.
The idea of two rich schmucks sitting in the Draft Room during the draft can mean only one thing: York will be strutting around in there trying to look vital to the process of football. No good ever comes from that.
What’s next? Locker room seats, so one can watch the boys getting dressed for a game?
The biggest news the 49ers have made so far in FA is not trading for Odell Beckham. Not sure why the team circulates this sort of non-news. Is it to impress us schmucks in some way? Why advertise failure? Then follow that up by insisting the team doesn’t really need a true Number One wide receiver.
Maiocco says the Niners addressed their woeful DB issues by signing Jason Verrett and re-signing Jimmie Ward. This is taking homerism to a new level. If it’s hanging off his torso, Verrett has broken it or torn it. He won’t make it through the year and neither will the equally oft injured Ward.
Is Verrett here merely to scare Tarvarius Moore or Ahkello Witherspoon into being better than they are? And if either of these two actually becomes a good CB, you can look for opposing QBs to stop letting Dickhead Sherman get away with playing ten to fifteen yards off the LOS on virtually every play.
All we know for sure is that whoever starts in the secondary at the beginning of the year won’t be there at the end. Get ready for another year of Antone Exum and Marcell Harris.
