The undisputed champion of the All-ACL squad.

No man, he saw action. Getz the bronze. Lattimore gold, will redmond silver.

Sad thing, at the right price, he's the only one that I thought was worth keeping. I really hope he does well because he got drafted into a crap situation.

Truth

Mis-used over & over.

When Lattimore couldn't get on the field , it blew up in Trent's face big time , plus I was super disappointed when Lattimore called it quits , killed a dream for us fans, and a waste of a 3rd round pick ..hopefully Lynch stays away from injured "projects"

He is the epitome of the difference between Baalke and Lynch (so far). Baalke never seemed to be worried about what style of play his coaches were using. He drafted guys with talent, but ill-suited for the team. Tank was a beast in college but was a TERRIBLE fit for the 3-4 we were running. Perhaps Harbaugh was bad at communicating his needs, but they worked poorly together.

That's why I optimistic about the Shanahan/Lynch pairing. Posters here were begging for Andrew Norwell. They say the All-Pro next to his name and started drooling. The fact is, Norwell would have been a terrible fit for this offense. Meanwhile those same people are throwing a fit because of McKinnon's contract. Here's a dude that does EXACTLY what Shanahan wants from the RB position and people are crying over the loss of Hyde. Is Hyde a good player? Sure, but he is a terrible fit in this offense.

Sounds about right.

In learning about Baalke's relationship with Chip it became clear that he didn't give a damn about what his HC's desired, he was going to do his own thing.

Tank getting another shot, this time in Miami
hes still around?
I remember the days when you actually had to do something to last in the NFL this long. Technically, this is year 7 for Tank. He's broken the average and has done absolutely nothing the entire time.
Shows you what a meat grinder the NFL is

Yeah, this. So much.
Just a note about Lattimore, after his horrendous injury the initial response by the medical staff was not when he could return to the playing field it was if he'd lose the leg. Baalke makes him a 3rd round pick.

The problem with Baalke wasn't that he took injured players... it's that he overvalued them. Lattimore would have been a good bet in the 6th-7th round.

.. instead of drafting players who could take place of the future players we were not going to sign, Baalke got too cute and thought that we were the Patriots..
