    Whoever the 49ers draft, it's going to be an improvement over Jimmy G long term. That's all I care about.

    I don't know, I'll trust Shanahan, guy seems like he knows what he's doing and at least we didn't trade for fucking Kirk Cousins.

    I seriously question that Jones will be an actual improvement. He looks for all I can see to have a ceiling of what Jimmy can do with possibly better durability and a much cheaper contract. Don't get me wrong that is still a net gain, but he hasn't shown anything to me that looks like he will be a sea change for the offense like Fields or Lance could be if coached up correctly.

    First round QB drafting in the last 5 years has been way better than the previous 15, to be fair.

    Yeah I'm not sure any teams have gotten better about evaluating QB's nor is the 2nd QB taken inherently cursed. I think modern teams have pulled so many concepts from the college game, like the read option, it allows QB's that are athletic to be better than if they were in a pure pocket passer scheme that most teams ran in the past.

    Also just depends on what people's definition of a bust is. Dan Jones for example, could probably be a decent game manager QB with some athletic upside. But that would require a top 5 defense and a scheme to maximize that. So while he may not last long in NY, I'm not sure I'd call him a bust.

    I think a lot of different factors are playing into this, but I think the biggest is the college game has become less gimmicky in the last half-decade particularly among the power conferences. The spread robbed quarterbacks of the need and thus the opportunity to learn how to read defenses or demonstrate accuracy. It's how we ended up with guys like Matt Leinart and Brady Quinn who were somehow shattering school and conference records only to arrive in the NFL and not be able to make basic throws.

    I'm not sure if the evolution of the option has made things much better or worse though. On one hand, the progressions are very formulaic and overly reliant on pre-snap reads vs post-snap so its vulnerable to defenses that can disguise their coverage schemes. But on the other hand, it at least does require reading a defense whereas the spread's success is overly reliant on mismatches and talent gaps that aren't as prevalent at the professional level.

    If he ends up in prison it’s not going to be until everything is wrapped up and it will probably be a slap on the wrist and a big fine.

    Its fucked up but honestly if Watson was on good terms publicly with the Texans when this came out it probably would have a measurable effect on his chances of doing prison time.

    That aside don't discount the effects of a highly paid defense team vs a public servant, I'm sure Watson is going to get buried in civil court but unless a couple of these cases are slam dunks I wouldn't be surprised if the DA fucks this up.

    I would be shocked if he does prison time. Vick went to jail as dog fighting is a felony offense and most importantly, there was a ton of evidence around him running the operation. And even then it was 23 months in a federal prison.

    As much as it sucks, since there are 22 women that have come forward (I think 18 filing charges), we know he's a dirtbag, but sexual harassment is barely a misdemeanor. And for the 2 women that mentioned oral sex, not only will that be hard to prove, but even if so, it's probably only going to be elevated to sexual battery which is only a misdemeanor. None of these charges are likely to result in jail time even if he wasn't an NFL player.

    Ideally we'd see the NFL take a stance on this suspending him without pay. But then we've seen worse offenses get brushed off by the NFL time and again so I'm not holding out much hope.

    I mean the nfl isn't going to be good at this because it's not their job. they only got forced into the role because the people whose job it is don't do it so we have this weird quasi judiciary system that isn't going to get it right because they shouldn't be doing it in the first place.

    So former NFL player Phillip Adams shot and killed 5 people in South Carolina yesterday then took his own life today.

    Tragic as fuck. I wonder if it’s CTE related.

    Intercourse and oral sex do not make up the dividing line between harassment and assault.

    The story states it's a dr that was treating him, Dr's wife, two grandchildren and an employee in the home. A 6th person is in the hospital seriously wounded.

    18 total cases. 2 criminal, 16 civil, plus at least 6 other women that have talked with Buzbee but couldn't provide enough evidence to bring credible suits/complaints.

    No matter how you slice it, if even half of these get to the sentencing/penalty phase he's out a metric crap-ton of cash and anywhere from 1-10 years in the pen.

    idk, there's 22 lawsuits right now. Not sure what category they all are. My point was that with that many accusations all painting the same picture, I think it's hard to claim it's fabricated. But with that being the case, I'm not sure any of the lawsuits would result in jail time.

    The SI report with the IG receipts is enough to show that almost none of it is fabricated.

    Yeah I mean when it first broke, given the source of the lawsuits I was willing to wait a little bit and see how it played out before coming to an opinion...it is clear now that there is a ton of evidence.

    I am still waiting to see how angry I will be at the end of this. Right now I am angry at Watson for the obvious reasons, and the Texans for protecting him until he was no longer useful to them. I can't wait to see how mad I am at his treatment compared to Roethlisberger, and how he inevitably signs with a new team one the legal situation is fully resolved. Bonus anger if it is the Saints as they don't give a shit who you hurt as long as you throw the football good.

    Deshaun’s lawyer held a presser where he said he wouldn’t agree to keep the accusers’ names private from public when revealed in depositions because “they should be looked at/scrutinized as thoroughly as Deshaun”

    Also said there were consensual encounters, with the therapists he and Deshaun originally said there’d never been any contact with at all

    It ain't great!

    The texans have basically burned every last drop of goodwill and we have none of our old team's stars left to root for. Watson a monster. JJ gone. Hopkins gone. Fuller gone. Our running game hasn't been good since Foster's heyday. To make matters worse, BOB pissed away so many picks for his boneheaded trades that we can't even go into a good rebuild mode. No first OR second round picks this year.

    I guess it's cool that Tyrod Taylor is gonna get another shot after getting utterly screwed by his doctors puncturing his lung last season? Mercilus is still pretty good and has a cool name? We've got a couple decent veteran receivers we picked up, even if they don't have much history with the team?

    I dunno it just feels like at minimum this year is going to be a disaster and we'll have to rebuild for the next few years.
