In the interest of maintaining quality football-oriented discussion in this thread, here is a re-statement of the general rules for posting on the 49er webzone:

1. Be respectful of our online community. Contribute to an engaging conversation rather than resort to personal attacks, threats, or anything that may be considered offensive.

2. Keep it clean. This is a PG-13 site.

3. You also agree not to post any abusive, obscene, violent, gruesome, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, racist, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any applicable laws.

4. Above all, we value quality over quantity. We do not allow spam and instead rather you put your efforts into quality posts.

5. Any and all infractions can result in a warning or banning.Infractions, warnings and bannings are determined in the sole and absolute discretion of the moderating staff.

In addition to these rules from the main site, here is a brief outline from my old college debate days on the Rules of Evidence regarding proper conduct in debate/discussion. In ascending order of authority:

OPINIONS -
Everyone is entitled to express their opinion as long as it is done in a civil manner. In any discussion between contrasting opinions, logic is expected as opposed to re-statement of a previously expressed opinion. In such a discussion, it will be expected that the respondent address the issues raised previously. This is a rule called Clash of Issues. It is not only common courtesy, it is also a recognition that the respondent intends to continue the dialogue.

Supporting evidence will be ultimately be expected to support an opinion.

EVIDENCE -

Evidence, lacking connection/logic to the point in discussion, is of the least authority. For example, statistics, without analysis and logic, are generally lacking in compulsive authority. Connect the dots so everyone will understand the point. The Burden of Proof lies first on the one making the original point!

The more recent the evidence the greater authority. Hence, evidence from 2017 will have greater authority than from 10 years ago.

Source of evidence will also be considered. Nationally recognized sources will prevail over local/regional sources unless the local source has known connections to the topic under discussion. Battles of Evidence, when connected by logic, are often the most interesting and informative. They not only inform but demonstrate the participants are serious about their desire to engage in a constructive discussion.

It all comes down to common courtesy. Follow these rules/guidelines and this thread can be a place of great football discussion.

Change, always change. Good luck in the new gaffe Alex.
For everyone excited about the Alex Vernon connection, it was never that great to begin with. The best a QB has ever used Vernon (relative to games played) was 2013. He missed the Colts and Panthers games and still put up career numbers without Alex.

He caught a Similar case of the drops that he had to start his career from 2014-2016, but he seems to be reliable enough in that department again. I just don't think he has the speed to get the kind of separation Alex needs anymore.

Denver tried to trade Talib? This should go over well lol
Doug Pederson is not looking forward to having to face him twice a year.

The rumor was that Elway is fed up with his behavior both on and off the field and wanted to get rid of him and his $12M cap number.

KC chose the younger, better, less expensive Kendall Fuller.

no way this gets to 1400 pages

Weird that all these teams were willing to give up so much for a "mediocre" QB.

Fuller is a high character guy so the Chiefs won on this. KC already tried an older, stop gap CB...didn't work out.

Just shows the NFL folks are dumb compared to many on this board.

wow. Denver would have been a great spot and I would have enjoyed seeing him beat the Chiefs. I bet they preferred it to a long term expensive Cousins contract.
Alex and VD sharing corndogs and Orange Julius smoothies once again.
