agree. the web zone has a long history of this type of thing. the words "it all began with alex smith" want to leap off my keyboard but I will restrain myself

I can't tell if that was intentional or you didn't think that post through very well.

Think what you may but I always find it "interesting" that alot of people cherry pick a few you tube highlights of a certain player when they are struggling or go nuts if a couple of negative reports come out of camp about certain players. its almost like they are just trying to find ways to justify their hate for a player. i tend to want to see a player in a niner uniform first before i run out and have the mayor issue a proclamation saying the guy is a bum or bust
you have a point CC...but doing the exact thing you claim your not isnt showing restraint.

Tough for secondary to have any real success without contact for 7-on-7 drills.

Plus the mental aspect. If he's left thinking out there while offensive players know their s**t yea, naturally he won't be as fast in that nature. Not worried.
He's getting all schemes and formations thrown at him....nothing new for any rookie
of course this is the truth, good god people. some people actually "act" like they want the kid to struggle and fail

yeah, kinda funny

Lol there was no "cherry picking" necessary when it came to pointing out the struggles of our former starting qb the last 7 seasons.

its not like he had a great support cast or coaching cast but thats a whole other topic for a whole other thread in a whole other world. going back to our number one pick, you hear one negative report out of camp and people start to slit their wrists. At least I wait to see a bigger body of work from players or aspects of the team before i break out the cyanide kool aide
Reid is having the same issues some of us saw coming out of college. Can't cover the long ball and quicker WRs.

Its too early to pass judgement. At least the problems he is having are the ones we knew about already.

The good thing is coaches are confident to let him run with the first team. That's a great sign.

good thing we're not facing any quick WR's this season.
Stay on topic, don't turn it into one of "those" threads.

7 on 7 is geared for the offense, not defense. Every defender will get worked during these sessions. Defense is a physical game, take away the physicality and you take away the majority of tools defenders use.

Anyone who puts stock in that POS written article doesn't know the game.
I wasnt thrilled with the reid pick because of several reasons. But he was the guy, and is in a 49ers uniform so i wish the best for him. Still wayyyyy too early for any judgment whatsoever.

Just read this article. Terrible is all I gotta say. The comments at the end were calling him a bust and questioning our coaching staffs ability to develop talent. Ridiculous. 6 practices in or something. Give me a break.
