Planes are pressurized, with their own oxygen supply.

maybe because the cabin is pressurized it doesnt effect them.

Nah Ryan Clark has it and he plays in all of Pittsburgh's road games. It's just dangerous to play games in an altitude like Colorado.

What was the point of the racist comment, even if it was directed at yourself?

Airplane cabins are pressurized. That is why if a cabin is penetrated and loses pressure, you have to put on oxygen masks so you can breathe, because the air is so thin up there.

That's what we all thought about the QB position last year...and that's the most important position on the roster!

Just sayin...

true but were risking it if someone gets injured especially when the solution is to just keep someone on the roster

im not saying he should stay on it indefinitally just this year

we could easily hide cam johnson in the PS and let him learn the position (the 5th round pick forgot his name atm is an OLB pass rush specialist) who also actually has injury history as well as does brooks

You know, I'm not sure we're risking all that much by letting Haralson go. It's not like he makes a lot of plays or gets many sacks. Maybe he takes care of his assignments well and we risk breakdowns in that area, but we wouldn't be missing much by way of production (2 sacks last year, 4 sacks the year before).

I was being self deprecating, tounge in cheek. I honestly didn't / don't know.

I know airplanes are pressurized but I've had ear issues all my life (tubes, 11 surgeries) and the pressurization doesn't really help most of the time. Sometimes, it feels like an icepick is being stabbed into my eardrums on descent.

I gotta think it has some effect on such a blood disease if high altitude affects it.

Planes do not have their own oxygen supply except that provided by emergency masks for the crew and passengers. The atmosphere has the same 20 percent of oxygen at all altitudes. How oxygen is absorbed in the body is a combination of the amount of oxygen, which is constant unless enhanced, and it's pressure, which decreases with altitude. Your mental function will be normal down to about 90% oxygen blood level saturation, and the healthy human will maintain that level up to about 10,000 feet. Cabin altitude will vary, but will not normally rise above six or seven thousand feet, or slightly higher than Denver. In an airplane, your exertion level is normally very low, whereas on a football field, you are consuming oxygen at a much higher rate. With healthy people, all we have to worry about is sufficient oxygen to the brain, as our organs can handle lower levels for some time. Sickle cell disease threatens to deprive the body organs from oxygen for too long, and can lead to serious consequences. Too much information.

That would be quite the upset going into this year with Aldon, Brooks, Fleming and Johnson as OLBs. I bet we keep 4... Harbaugh hinted at keeping 3 last year was playing with fire. I'd really hate to see Fleming/Johnson go that quick because not sure one would last on ps... Haralson is pretty solid and can be a backup for either side. Not sure we leave the backup job in the hands of two rookies. Aren't Fleming/Johnson guys who are situational pass rushers or do you think they could play all 3 downs if needed this year?

If someone got hurt, they would have to be 3-down guys, but right now they're just situational rushers (like Aldon was). Nobody has been a bigger fan of Haralson than me even since his days at Tenn, but the guy just doesn't make much of an impact when he's on the field. Now, I doubt he gets cut in favor of these two rooks, but then again, I didn't think Harbaugh would go with two rookie QBs to backup Smith last year either. Harbaugh is a gambler, so it's not out of the realm of possibility.

Is parys in a contract year? Maybe he has a good year

I love this pick. My only concern is, how serious is sickle cell trait?? Seems like he played better in a 3-4 OLB than a 4-3 DE.
Like the pick. Seems like he can really get after the quarterback, and gives this team even more depth at the position.

No. Free agent after next year.

Trent Baalke values passrushing the most in 3-4 OLBs, he's said that before. Both of the guys were got have a lot more potential to be better passrushers than Haralson. I think Haralson will get traded or cut

I think he just likes the best players and not dead weight like some previous idiots we had...
