SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS vs. OAKLAND RAIDERS GAMEDAY THREAD (PRESEASON)

This is his make it or break it game. If he doesn't take control and dominate he will be relegated to Hill's backup.

"Since Smith was the one with ground to make up, Hill could close the deal with a solid effort against Oakland in this week's preseason game. Smith will start the game."

link to site.

I know its PFT but damn I just found it funny that they would start Smith instead of Hill (let Hill play a few possessions) and then let Alex take over again.


tis true

Yeah ------ It does sound like it , but maybe that's not so bad. Maiocco wrote that Smith would have to perform very well in the next two exhibition games in order to have a chance. Here is what Maiocco recently wrote.

All indications I've gotten is that Hill has pretty clearly moved ahead. Smith remains in the race, but he'll have to perform very well in the next two exhibition games if he has any chance to open the season as the starter. That said, the 49ers have been encouraged by Smith's play this summer. There is a feeling that even if he does not open the season as the starter, he has put himself into position to take over - if needed - and hold onto the job for a long time.
is it Saturday yet????

Will Cable be on the sidelines on Sat. or in jail ? LOL
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
We recently heard from a very good source that the decision of Raiders
defensive assistant Randy Hanson not to press charges after getting
his face broken in early August was driven by a desire to avoid
publicity and that, because publicity has now arrived, Hanson might
change his mind.

Apparently, he has.

Per Brad Biggs of NFP, Hanson has retained a lawyer and is cooperating
with police. Among other things, Hanson has provided the authorities
with medical records reflecting not that he has a broken facial bone,
but that he has a broken jaw.

According to Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports, Hanson is "back in the
hospital" due to swelling in the jaw. Citing an unnamed source close
to Hanson, Silver reports that Cable "is definitely" responsible for
the injury, and that Cable "had to be pulled off of [Hanson] two
times."

Per Biggs, who also cites an unnamed source, "Cable knocked Hanson out
of his chair and up against the wall and into a cabinet. Cable and
Hanson fell to the floor, where Hanson was choked, . . . and Cable
was pulled off Hanson by the other men before Cable went after Hanson
again."

Cable allegedly said while allegedly choking Hanson, "I am going to
kill you, I am going to kill you."

In our view, it's possible that Hanson's decision to push the issue
was influenced by Cable's effort to pretend that nothing happened, as
explained on ESPN by Cable's former college teammate, Mark Schlereth:
"I talked to Tom, and he said, 'This is absolutely ridiculous. There
is no truth to any of these things that are going out and flying
around. He does not know how it has gotten to this point.' But he
basically told me, 'Listen, no punches were thrown.' Obviously, at
this time of the year, in camp, you're gonna have some heated
discussions. And that's what went down here."

Silver also details a series of other similar incidents within the
Raiders organization during recent years. As to Hanson, Silver
confirms widespread suspicision that Hanson is regarded by other
members of the coaching staff as the "eyes and ears" of owner Al
Davis, and Silver explains that Hanson might be moved to the personnel
department by Davis as a result of the most recent incident.

As to Cable, his ultimate fate remains up in the air. But if a league-
implemented investigation corroborates Hanson's allegations, the NFL
will have no choice but to take action against Cable.

If the league doesn't plan to punish Cable, then the league should get
out of the business of punishing players who misbehave.

I wish Nolan was an assistant coach for Cable.
My luck has been good. I will get to go to my second consecutive Niner game. This time, my bro-in-law will be handing out free Papa Murphy's pizza in the parking lot starting at around 1 or 2pm. I'm going to try and make there around that time so I can help him out but may not make it until 4 due to prior commitments. So, if you see a couple of short guys handing out pizza, that's my bro-in law. If you see a guy respond to Joecool (5'10", 170) male pattern hair, that's me.

Maybe you will get a pizza.

Haha I'll probably see you brother. I'm going. You'll know what I look like just check my profile.

I'll be the only Niner fan surrounded by Fader fans (my girl and her fam).
Cable definitely should get punished, and not just a weak ass fine, suspend him at least 2 games.
