People -- this isn't Paris, France after the Third Army kicked the Nazi's butt back across the Rhine. Now that, people, was some REAL payback time. This is getting a little over the top. Yes, Maddog was wrong. Yes, he was really wrong. C minus for Aldon Smith? This guy is probably going to win rookie of the year. And he just might be in contention with Kendall Hunter and Chris Culliver.
But, bottom line, Maddog's a 49er fan. We're all 49er fans. We should all share the joy that is winning 49er football again.
So Maddog was wrong? So, he'll never admit that he's wrong? In the end, it's a mighty small hill of beans to be splitting hairs over.
Actually, I have found Maddog to be a huge contributor to the Zone over the years. Plus, when I have directed a question to him specifically, I have always found him to be very gracious in answering.
Is he opinionated? Absolutely. Is he occasionally obnoxious? Possibly, but a number of zoners are on occasion. You all know who you are.
I appreciate MD because he puts in a ton
of time to educate himself about college guys and the draft and usually, he is an excellent source, often better than some of the most respected "experts" in the field.
Now, it just so happens that he may have been mistaken this year
(and we can all be happy that he was...
). I, for one, hope that he comes back to the Zone soon and expresses himself about the Niners' success.
To sum up, let us appreciate MD's contributions....they have been many.
