hail mary plays.

hopefully we don't have any games that come down to a hail mary pass

well u know, we're up by 7 at the end of the first half. Ball at the 50 y/l one play left before the end of the half.

In that situation I think MS will just run the ball to run out the clock and head into the locker room

If it's hail mary they will send more than 2 guys, cause 2 guys can get triple teamed when the team needs a TD.

Plus the hail mary isn't about speed it is about leaping ability.

true, they also have Vernon Davis. i dont think they would just bring out crabs for one play, then every team would know what we were gonna do
Crabtree isn't such a diva on Madden. He's quite the team player actually.

Durn it! You had me all excited bringing this thread back! I thought we had signed him.

A Mod giving out false hopes no less! Have you no shame sir? No shame at all?

A spanking you deserve.
Aint that a b***h, a retired Brett Farve will be in Training Camp before Crabtree.

In other words, there is an offer on the table, and when he decides to sign it, we'll welcome him with open arms. Definitely sounds like a take it or leave it offer.

I'm all for letting him sit out the entire season if that's what he wants to do. It would suck to lose that draft pick, but at least we wouldn't be overpaying more than teams already do with their 1st round picks. Not only that, but it would be a positive for the NFL in the long run, as it would almost guarantee a future rookie cap, to protect teams from this sort of thing.

Parker is going to cost a lot of future players $$$, as this will certainly work against the players union when negotiating a new CBA. Of course that means less dough in his pocket down the road as well.

You obviously do not know Eugene Parker very well. I encourage the skeptics to do a background search on his clients and cases in the past. I think you will come away very impressed. I know I was.

You state that Parker is going to cost a lot of future players money, but this is an institutional problem that started way before Parker, and will continue down the road until the player's association decides to let the league create a rookie salary system. And, Crabtree is not the only guy who has not signed.

In that the media has been fixated on him before, during, and after the draft, it shows that this player is very unique to the league. And, due to that unique situation, a unique contract has to, and will be, constructed.

Not to pick on you, but there seems to be an overwhelming sentiment that Niners' management is so much tougher than Parker. I beg to differ. The guys on the Niners' side are relatively young and inexperienced, while Parker has been doing this for a long time. A group of young pups are not going to crack an old vet who has faced much more experienced, savvy and grizzled GM's around the league.

Damn dude, why don't you just give the guy a bj already? Seriously, you seem to be rooting for Parker over the organization here and ignoring the fact that he and Crabtree have no leverage. He's making a bold play and the Niners are doing a great thing by standing pat. Show some respect for the organization you root for. This would be a great step forward for the Niners management to stand firm when they are making a fair offer, by all accounts. You seem to WANT the mighty Parker to win and to show how naive and inexperienced our organization is.

and not to pick on you, but parker isn't some incredible agent. you say to look at his "track record", then you list a bunch of players who have been in the league a few years. show me where he got top 5 money for a #10 pick before.

i'm not sure what your fixation with parker is (maybe you really are him, i have no idea), but he's just like every other agent out there. he's trying to do what is best for his client. that's his job, and i have no doubt he is good at it.

but to imply that he's some wiley vet that is going to somehow wear the niners brass down just by showing them a bunch of his prior clients is ridiculous. you're painting niners management/negotiators to be some young punk kids who have no idea what they're doing and that is where you are wrong. the 49ers have a very competent group of negotiators and cap managers.

i have no doubt both sides are going to bend a bit and meet in the middle, but you are overselling parker just a bit. time will prove me right.

Seriously he should give him a BJ. You are the only one on here saying that Parker is in the right. I dont usually say this to people on here, but are you even a Niner fan.

In MD's defense, I think that he is overemphasizing Parker's credentials and background in response to the flood of "Parker SUXXXX, NINERZ RULE!@!!" type posts. Hype meets hype and all that jazz.

In any event, if anyone would like to check out Parker's web site, here it is - http://www.maximumsports.com/

Note that Chilo Rachal is a client.

Finally, I think that everyone needs to take a step back and realize that only a few people - Parker, Crabs, Scotty, Parag (sp?), Jed, etc. - REALLY know the details here. The rest is, on some level, speculation.
