Seahawks to sign Nate Davis

OK, I liked his potential too, but if he had a hard time learning Jimmy Raye's playbook, how long and hard would it be for him to learn Harbaugh's playbook?






The biggest 'elephant' in the room Sing didn't want to discuss about Nate wasn't even his intelligence/playbook-grasping issues; the dude has/had weight & work-ethic issues (at JaMarcus Russell levels). -Nate looked horribly overweight on the sidelines during the finale. (I get a vibe that Pete Carroll thinks he can change this.)

Good riddance.

I liked Nate Davis, but was disappointed in hearing about his poor work ethic and weight gain. I still think he's going to be a good QB in the league.

It really doesn't matter how good Nate is going to be, now. What matters is if Balke and Harbaugh can find the next franchise QB for the 49ers. If they can it's all good.


RIP NATE WASHINGTON
"Welcome to Seattle: Where former 49er players go to die"
Carroll: "So, Nate, what kind of inside secrets can you tell us about the 49ers offense."
Nate: "Off...fence? Nate not on fence."
Carrol: "No, O-F-F-E-N-S-E"
Nate: "Ohhh you mean when me throw ball far?"
Carroll: "Umm, yes, sort of. I was just wondering if you have any inside knowledge of the 49ers playbook."
Nate: "Playbook too confusing say Singletary, He tell Nate to throw ball to red colored jerseys. Nate likes to throw ball far..."

Carroll" "Hey Scott! Is this the best you can get me from the 49ers?! Get Alex Smith on the line."

damn, you guys hate nate davis
The 2 major factors I see in Nate Davis not being able to become a legit NFL QB are outlined in this June 2010 article:

The quarterback, 49ers second-year pro Nate Davis, has dyslexia and often works for close to 45 minutes at night with housemate and Niners wide receiver Dominique Zeigler to master the system. Davis' learning disability often causes him to mix up basics like left and right - not a good thing in the football world when sets and blocking patterns depend on directions.

He has a tough time "getting the play out" and actually executing a given call.

"I know what I'm doing out there. It's just saying the play, that's my main problem, getting the words out," Davis said. "I made big progress from last year. I've just got to keep on working."

-Before starting your 2nd year in the league you are studying "up to 45 minutes a night" on the playbook. Is that because he doesn't have work ethic, or because of his learning disability he can't spend long hours learning the playbook?

-He has a hard time hearing the play and then repeating it verbally in the huddle. If his dyslexia is also effecting verbalizing an NFL play call in the huddle I just think it will hold him back too much to be successful.
Maybe in the next 15 years he will be able to learn their offense.
