I wish people would stop cutting him slack because he was 20 at the start of the season, he was 21 for most of the season. so if you want to throw that age stat out there in every argument at least be honest about the fact that he was 21 for most of his rookie year.

he is who he is. a lazy immature first round pick that has his money and will never pan out. this is why drafting these young guys that could turn out to be good is such a bad idea.

I was b***hing about him at the end of the season but the zoners reassured me that he is working very hard and has made progression leaps and bounds. Is he not working out and staying in shape?

that was your first mistake. you know most of the people on here are homers. I dont think he is cuz he tweets about any and everything but not about working out.
I'll admit it's discouraging to see all the tweets about random s**t, but honestly, when I was 21 I wasn't that focused either.

What we KNOW is that he struggled mightily last year, but gained some momentum towards the end of the year. We also KNOW he hasn't been at the team activities.

What we don't know is what he is doing/or not doing to keep in shape and reviewing his technique. I was hoping for a Pro-Bowl caliber player when we drafted him, but now I'm hoping for a serviceable starter, with fewer mistakes than last year. Hopefully, he wouldn't be a liability in pass protection (too often).

doubt he is doing anything. if comes back to college fat and outta shape when he is working to get to the NFL what do you think he is doing now. I bet if the season doesnt start until the 2nd preseaon game he doesnt start because he is too outta shape.

Hopefully not, but it wouldn't surprise me.

We are all so so so bored, that the OP came up with a scnario that is just a thought, but one of the worst thoghts I have heardd in a long time.

The niners have two 1st round picks that are OT that are signed for the next 5 years, FINALLY the line can get some stability at the bookends. Now someone wants to remove that book end and put this high fdraft pick at guard. I feel like pulling a Jim Mora and say Play offs, play offs are you kidding me.

Are you kidding me, you want to have the niners now have to draft another RT or FA.


I think it's insane to try him out a guard. He is a tackle, plain and simple. I doubt this will happen, but if there are any moves, Staleyand Davis may flip flop, but I'd like to see how Davis does with another year at RT. On the subject of Staley being at RT, what's everyone's opinion on what was Staley's best season?

Good for him!
WOW. This whole thread has gone bonkers. The guy has played ONE year and was making strides. He started every game last year as a rookie playing a demanding position.

Whats with the zone these days. The guy is YOUNG. At least give the guy a freakin' chance. WOW.

This place drives me crazy. WHen people don't like the pick to begin with, they go out of thier way to try and make themselves right to call a guy a bust before he's even had a chance.

When Aldon Smith comes in and doesn't break the sack ecord as a rookie, look out. He'll be called the biggest DE Bust since Aundray Bruce.

I am just starting to grasp how touchy fans on this forum can be. Are we seriously calling this guy a bust because of what is NOT on his twitter? Are we actual sports fans in here?

He put in enough work in college to be a top 15 pick. A lot of linemen are prone to being "overweight" just from their natural metabolism. This can be as little as 10 to 15 pounds when discussed in relation to football. When your playing weight is 330 pounds this is not as big an issue as you are looking at it as. The guy has displayed nothing to suggest he doesn't have a good work ethic

Agree with this. If anything he needs to bend with his knees more and learn to push the defender by the qb. He's got the talent i could see that all season, it's just when will his mind and feet and hands all start working togather and just play naturally which might take some time since he moved from lt to rt! Hopefully with some time and good coaching we can get the best out of him... O yeah and racheals losser ass not starting next to him anymore will also improve him because he won't be doing 2 jobs!
