A montage of some of the best images from day two of 49ers training camp.

A little old. Training camp is finished. He threw those all camp. I would say in his arsenal.

How do you know he threw those all camp ? In the past, even for deep balls, he doesn't usually throw them that high.

But, if you think he has already got it down, then I guess "Jump Ball Gallore" will be coming to a cinema near you this season.

You are right. I really don't know. I was not at practice, and just went off my reading of the press.

Sorry. I really should have been more careful.

edit: From an interview yesterday with Steve Young.

You were there for his first start against the Bears. How surprised were you by what you saw?

SY: The eye-opening part was the number of throws that he made. And the different throws that he made.
I knew that he was a hard-throwing guy, but he threw a lot of great touch passes. I mean, most guys don't have the full repertoire of throws.
Throw the hard ball, and come back and feather one in and then drop a big rainbow deep ball.

Guys usually just don't have that ability. To me that was the most impressive thing about the night..... You can make a career out of all those throws.

*ba boom boom* *hiss*
I have read a lot about how he will have a harder time catching frozen ropes from kap. Iike many of you I played a little ball back in the day. It always seemed to me that some guys are really instinctive catchers. If they watch the ball fly slowly into thier hands they mind f**k themselves out of the catch. Where as with kap catching a football is a lot more reactive. At least I hope thats the case.

Not sure which is worse: tuning in at the end of the 4th quarter or tuning in a day early

I do not know. But, think about this.

Gore got a 4 on the Wonderlic and he knows what days we play the game.

Amp Lee, thanks for finding out what the "bad blood" was about. I tried on Google, but didn't find much, so thank you. So we waxed KC on the cap issue, and then waxed them again on the talent (and experience) issue. So how could they have let him go? Bad Blood is a killer until you get rid of somebody. Not knowing who the other person was, all I can say is he must be one helluva a ballplayer. Altho, it isn't really that simple. Somebody does something stupid, and a sucker punch to the side of the head sure qualifies...I can see not forgetting that. Hence, KC had to move baldin who was understandably unhappy. Not too many ways you can even up things when a sucker punch is involved. If you retaliate, then you are no better than the jackass who threw it. So, yeah, I get it. Wasn't a good trade for KC, but they ended up way better off with a new guy who was a #1 pick...but hadn't produced yet.

Tulini, thank you for he film, which was about 3 minutes longer than the 20 second strip I had seen. Yes it was college, but jeez, that guy dominated. As for his catching style, I'll leave that to guys that are more expert in that than I. If Baldin turns out half as good as his highlights, we have a load for our opponents....Mr. Baldin.

As to the comment of getting Baldin on the field when Boldin comes off, I don't think so. I see those two guys playing at same time, and one or the other moving into slot, the other split wide...or both could be split wide. Just imagine Vernon, Vance, Boldin, Baldin, kyle(or Patton, collie, etc). That ought to give DC opponents something to think about. Oh, also I would have LMJ split wide of Kap in backfield...making 6 really nice targets. Whew!.
