Alex Boone!

For some reason, I'm not that surprised at Boone's success. In fact, i expected it. The determination and effort he exhibited at turning himself around and remodeling his body, combined with his rep for nastiness and strength, only served to set him up for success no matter where they played him on the line. If there is a weak spot on the line, it isn't Boone. I truly believe he could excel at any position.
Not surprise of Boone's good play. I thought he would struggled early to get acclimated to the position, but so far he's doing very well. He may have a few mental lapses but his physical play has been pretty good for a first timer at the position. Makes me wonder how many penalties have been called on Boone. My guess would be not many. And that's usually a good sign from an offensive lineman.
Good call SF2AZNiner.

He really reminds me of Gogan but much faster.

Our OLine is WAYYY better than last year and he's a big part of the improvement.
Man with AD, the right side of the line is pure nasty

I can't remember a single penalty on him. Either way.. so glad he was given the shot. No surprise to me at all that he is playing very well..

Personal troubles, fights with police, public drunkeness. I think that was it....

whats wrong with this

Sounds like a typical 21 year old kid with no girlfriend or a girlfirned he doesn't like.
Alex Boone is in my opinion the best second chance story on a team loaded with them (Tarrell Brown, Perrish Cox, etc.). Very inspiring. I am so happy for him and his family. It also is another validation of the folks in the front office. They know talent and character when they see it. I think we've got a lot of good years in the near future.
Boone is excelling on this team and helped make our O-line one of the best in the league.
"I think the scribes and pundits had it wrong about me," said Boone while borrowing a phrase from his head coach. "I don't think that I am a right tackle at all. ... I've been trying to tell people that for a long time. Nobody believes me. So they say, 'Hey, (he) can't play tackle, move him into guard.'" "There was a point in that game where I think everybody in the stadium knew there was a pass coming, which is always tough," center Jonathan Goodwin said. "But our job is to get them blocked regardless." Boone did just that, matching up one-on-one with Osi Umenyiora and shutting him out. Umenyiora didn't have a sack or a hit in the last 20 drop backs by the San Francisco QBs. This week, he's got a daunting task. With Staley's status unknown right now, Boone has to prepare for two positions - and all of the considerable Seahawk opponents he might face - and do it in a short week. Is there enough time to prepare? "There'd better be," Boone said. "I'll make time. If I have to go home and watch film with my son, I'll do it. It is what it is -- it's a short week. I told my wife I'm not going to be around a lot this week, so don't expect me at home. I've got a lot to do."
