I didn't know you were going. Thx a lot, D.

If you had stayed in Fremont, w/me (Specifically!), I'd have housed, and personally bathed, you, but NOOOOOOOO, you obviously chose some respectable/decent hotel that has nary an Erin Andrews-peephole with which to capture you in glorious, indiscreet, back-lighting.


G/L w/that.


You must really like your fellow webzoner...

Damn both TD's were right on but that 2nd made me blow a load in my Hanes that would have made Michael Jordan proud. The only thing that pissed me off was looking at Zack Keasey's dreads in the video.
Great stuff! Hope he keeps throwing the ball that way when the real bullets are flying

This is promising for Alex because these two throws came after a set where Smith made a good throw and then had two horrible plays. He walked away with his head down and it felt like the previous years again, but then he came back on his next chance and threw A great throw to Vernon with 3 defenders around him. Then the good throw to jones and jones made a great catch on. Then the next set, the flea flicker play to Jones. It was awesome. Never saw Alex do this well overall in all the previos practices I've been to which is like 7 or 8.

I drove my Niner-red convertible down and took a quick look at Niners HQ yesterday. Looked like they had a full house. Another beautiful day in Northern California! Kinda wish I'd signed up for camp tickets, but I'm sure my wife's honey-do list would have prevented me from attending the full practice anyway.


More pics!!!!!!!!

This is where Alex will continue to excel over the course of camp to separate himself from Hill. If you want to strike fast and deep, your man is Alex as much as I want Hill to be able to do the same thing. He's just not built that way.

The question is can Alex keep up with Hill on the short routes and minimize his INTs. If he does, Alex can further separate from Hill.

I was hoping to hear about deep connections like these. We surely haven't seen deep, oh dare I say accurate, balls down field 30 - 50 yards deep since the 2006 and 2007 TC except these seem better.

That only bodes well for us. Let's see if he can keep it up. After all, it is only the first day of practice.

First video was a nice play, but would Sims have been called for holding in a game?

The vid with the cowboy fan getting pulled out made me rofl...

That was one of the highlights of the day, lol. Sourdough Sam was calling him out (silently somehow with a lot of gestures). He took him down from the stands, and escorted him back toward the entrance. He walked back of his own volition to the same spot, presumably rejoining his buddies. Then Sourdough Sam came back with a policemen, took out his nightstick and started waving it in the Romo fan's direction. He went away, then came back with an EMT, miming that the Romo fan was knocked out on his back with a flat hand sign. It was hysterical.

Lmao.

On a serious note, I don't understand why they had to try to kick the guy out.

I mean, I know that the Cowboys are our hated rivals, but the dude was probably just there with freinds who were 49er fans... lol

But whatever, why am i feeling sorry for the fool...tryna come up here in our house... haha

He should have never been allowed in. Niners fans weren't even able to get tickets and theres a cowboys fan there???!! WTF?? Somethings wrong in general here...

I don't think I saw Hill threw a pass beyond 20 yards in both practices. Smith definitely has the better physical qualities but Hill has shown the leadership on the field. But I am glad that Alex will be getting another chance with us. He has a lot of weight taken off his shoulder and I think mentally he is healing from what Nolan did to him and this chance will do a lot to help Alex steer his career back in the right direction.

My opinion is Hill will start as the two QB are equal and Smith is going to need to show more to win the job but I feel if Hill goes down or has some bad stretches, Smith can come in and do a good job.
I wish Alex could quicken that snail slow throwing release. His throwing release is so slow he's giving the pass rush an extra second to sack him or knock down his pass.

did they give out tickets to a season game?

I think he did change it because the ball was coming out quicker than it did in the past. I was in the same boat as you the last 4 years, disliking the fact that it took forever for the ball to be thrown once Smith decide to throw.

I don't think so, I did not get one. So they either gave out like only 50 of em or none at all
Very good pics and vids. Keep up the outstanding work. This makes the the East Coast 9er fans feel just a little closer.
