Sorry, but some of the comments.... My God, what is wrong with you? After reading through six pages of response to Marv -- I've seen some real WHOPPERS. And, I'm beginning to wonder if smokeless crack really does exist and how many of you are taking advantage of it.
WHOPPER ONE: "It's pretty clear that Justin Smith is not having a great year."
Where did that come from? Were his two sacks yesterday not enough? You wanted three? Maybe four? Every game? Perhaps he should set the NFL sack record with fifty? WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?
WHOPPER TWO: "Kyle Williams is Captain Fair Catch."
This observation comes from? What? That he's no Devin Hester? OK, he's no Devin Hester. HINT! THERE'S ONLY ONE DEVIN HESTER! How do you know Harbaugh isn't telling Williams to fair catch these punts? Do you? Do you not? Do you think that if teams ASSUME that Williams is going to fair catch punts that perhaps he might be allowed loose at some point and surprise a few people? Sort of the way that Harbaugh magically pulled The Option out of the playbook yesterday and dusted it off? And you think Harbaugh should be showing us these bags of tricks NOW? In the regular season? WHEN WE DON'T NEED TO SHOW OTHER TEAMS? What is wrong with you?
WHOPPER THREE: LMJ is a "wasted draft pick."
No, really. You deserve that. Here's another:
This comes from? Where? Because he's not playing right now? When you've got Gore, Kendall Hunter and Anthony Dixon, WHY ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH WHY WOULD YOU PLAY LMJ? We have the most dominating run trio next to Denver in all of NFL football. And just because Harbaugh isn't using LMJ yet, "he's a waste?" And this comes from? Where? Pulled from a keester? I would not be surprised.
Now -- ask yourself this: Where do small, shifty, speedy, change of pace running backs do best? Indoors perhaps? ON TURF MEBBE? Think we might face some teams like that down the road. LIKE NEW ORLEANS? Trust me people, Seattle relies WAAAYYYYY too much on its bellcow at RB. Marshawn's hip is already hurting so much that he's not practicing during the week. One good smack, and Lynch is down for the count. And then who do they rely upon? Word is the team is getting ready to resign Michael Robinson.
Just because you have four great running backs -- does not mean that you use all four. You save one. There's lots and lots and lots of season left. LMJ is going to get his chances.
Thanks again for your brilliant observations Marvin. But you do seem to draw a lot of -- umm -- well minded 49er fans.
