Our loveable brutes strapped on the pads last Saturday. Now they have about three weeks to get ready for the season opener against the Cardinals. Jalen Hurd took the opportunity of the first practice to tear his ACL, which will put him on IR for the second consecutive season.
Brandon Aiyuk is getting good reviews, which probably doesn’t mean much just yet, except it’s better than no reviews or negative ones.
The only eyebrow raiser so far was the egregiously stupid selfie-video posted on the web by Trent Williams and his brother roaring along the freeway at 125 mph. Not sure which was the stupider act: driving that fast or posting it so cops and 49er brass could see the foolishness.
I have to go with the posting option. After all, I was young and stupid once a very long time ago, and late one night while driving from San Diego back to L.A. I punched my ’56 Olds up to 110 mph. Luckily, there were no cell phones or videos available in those days, so I was prevented from compounding my idiocy.
Of course, I wasn’t a $10 million dollar veteran LT who was supposed to be showing the youngsters how to behave in the NFL.
