Marvin and OND, vacarro was the consensus pick but my brother and I both saw virtually all of his games. And he did a great job of fooling somebody, because he just wasn't that great a FS. I was afraid trent was going to go up to #15 -20 to get him. Was delighted when someone else got him first. He was not worth moving up 2 slots for , let alone 15. Trent did great, he moved up and took the best FS....Reid.. You watch. Vacarro is going to get picked on this yr a bunch. And you know what? Those teams are going to be successful doing it. I am REALLY glad we didn't get him. Actually, trent is so good I should have known he didn't have vacarro on his board. Sure I would have liked Reid a bit closer to 31. Problem was there were two or three teams that were going to take him before that. So Trent did the right thing. Besides he screwed big jer with just a 3rd rd pick, and then big jer really laid an egg and jumped BACK 3 rds to take his Wisc center in the first at #31. Trent got lucky he was dealing with big jer. I said before, besides the ego b.s., i truly wonder if the guy doesn't have dementia. Seriously.
Interesting take on Vaccaro, doc. And based on what you actually saw, not on somebody else's review of a couple snippets of utube tape. Good to know.
Baalke seems to be a master of the draft, and Jerry Jones seems to be the replacement for Al Davis. lol.
The more I think about this offseason, both FA and the draft, the more I cannot wait to see this team in action! So many potentially great additions.
McCoy, Boldin, Morrah, Asomugha, then Reid, Tank, Lemonier, Patton, Daniels, Dial, and McDonald, to name a few!
I see some personnel changes on the horizon.
And I will say it again, as unpopular as it may be, I would not be surprised to see Jennings "retired" as long snapper to make room on the 53 man roster for one of the new guys who is more versatile. We now have 3 or 4 guys with experience at LS, and although none of them may be as experienced and as dependable as Jennings, they are all younger and can contribute to the team in some other way as well. KIlgore and Looney are valuable OL backups, and Looney in particular has the speed to contribute on ST coverage units, even tho he's an OL. McDonald also has the speed, and some experience at LS, and he may actually contribute as a TE, unlike Jennings.
Jennings is the longest tenured Niner, I believe, and has been an excellent long snapper and a great teammate. It would be great to see him get a SB ring before he retires, just as it would be for Gore & J. Smith. But it may be that his time has come, and gone.
