I thought Baalke was going to do it too. f**k.
AJ Jenkins over him was literally a franchise changer. Imagine having a big bodied deep threat like Jeffery on this squad? In the RZ? To Stretch the D? Our 2 biggest needs. Not only am I convinced we win the SB one of the past 2 years if we drafted him, but we would be setup BIG TIME for the long haul. Crabs wants to get paid top 5 money? Good luck in Dallas. Now Crabs can hold us for ransom.
The thing that bothered me the most about the AJ pick over Jeffery was that Baalke was all cocky ( not gamecocky though ) about the pick, saying he put it in an envelope the night before. You do some sh!t like that, you better damn well hit!!! I wouldn't have been as mad if he picked Fleener, or Randle at that spot, but to say to everyone that you know more than them and wiff that bad...unacceptable.
Alshon was a BEAST his Jr year at South Carolina, hands down the best WR in the country. He was so much fun to watch on the field. Then he got into a funk his Sr year, gained weight and scared everyone away. The FO has to do a better job grabbing some of these highly talented kids that maybe have a flaw or two. With our strong locker room and hands on coaching, I don't understand why we don't take a risk or two. I think people forget that these are college kids, hell, I wouldnt want my Sr year in college to be the measuring stick for the rest of my life.
Seeing Alshon dominate the way he did this year, while AJ was traded away....it absolutely killed me.
