Even the great Okung is struggling in OTAs. Our boy Davis will be fine, they are rookies and prone to mistakes.
They will be fine. I really despise that statement. Half of every years first rounders are chewed up by the NFL in 5 years or less. You have no idea who is going to be fine and who isn't.

Struggling in OTA's is obviously not the final straw, but it is not a good indication either

It's an indication of nothing. As in, you can't possibly determine a player's true abilities without game situations over time.

Seriously, there's no substitute for the raw adrenal-rush all players experience during actual football games.

Kind've like Chris Rock's interpretation of the "Tossed Salad Man"; when somebody's suckin' yo dick they can pretend it's something else, but when they're eatin' ass, they know it's "ass"!

Just so happens this is the same type of reporting that has Niner talk in an uproar over Davis. People want to know whats going on with their rookies. If they were dominating in camp would you want to hear about it? Not sure why you wouldnt want to know whats going on with rookies on your team.

Because ignorant fans try to draw conclusions from arbitrary information that means absolutely nothing.

Every NFL football player struggles in practice at one time.
Isaac Sopoaga and Justin Smith will destroy Okung. All day, everyday.

When you get burned it means something. When you drop a pass it means something. When you throw an INT it means something. If you play poorly in practice you wont be playing on Sundays.
I guess he's a bust.

Until then, stay off the internet.
