I hear you...the offseason SUCKS! Can the Seahawk homer, Mike Sando, please be fired now? Unfortunately, those of us who read ESPN updates on the 49ers and NFC West are subject to his Seahawk-biased blogs...today's Sando blog re: Harvin and Crabtree is no exception. And, he keeps referencing Bill Williamson, some NFL scout for ESPN...Williamson is a big wind-bag whose NFL knowledge doesn't impress me (the Niners D-line is FOURTH BEST in the division? Are you kidding me?). Anyway, I'm off topic - back to this thread...regarding the comment about our new TE McDonald, I do wonder why McPherson would say that. From everything I've read about McDonald coming out of Rice, he is an improving blocker and needs to work on traditional in-line TE blocking. Also, I hear his hands can use some improvement but he does catch a lot of balls and doesn't have terrible hands - he has all the athletic ability to improve in all areas as a TE. If the Seahawks really passed on him because of his hands, then their loss and our gain. Instead, they draft Luke Willson, Rice's SECOND-best TE? And this is from Rice, not Alabama. I don't know a thing about Willson after reading many different publications and articles about the top 15 or so TEs available this past draft (didn't see him ranked once). The Seahawks are going to get what's coming to them, on the field and off (already happening off the field w/ the suspensions, etc.). They are so over-hyped...games aren't won in the offseason but the media would have you believe otherwise.
