All any football GM needs to ponder is what happens to your QB and season record if you were neglectful and depleted your OL. All they have to do is think - Miami 2013.
Not what I read. 49ers President, Paraag Marathe has a thing about tearing up existing contracts, of which he has. Like I said, tiddlywinks stuff. It'll get done.
Try fabrication. SF is not going to let that guy go. Dude just wants to get paid more than just the 12th best guard in the league. It will get resolved. Having said that, a 6'-8" 315 lb. combo G/T on that right side!!! I would trade Moore in a nanosecond.
I'm very proud of you, FZ. It's been nearly five hours since your first post today and you have yet to drop a "clueless Joe" reference. Keep up the good work!
...hmm..., perhaps it's why they don't match up heavyweight boxers with flyweight opponents. It wouldn't last long.
A QB has to be 6'-4"/235 lb. to survive in today's NFL. Even with rule changes, today's defensive players are too big, too strong, too fast and their techniques are just too polished to offset anything the league does in attempts to protect their quarry. That's not to say that a 6' tall or smaller QB is incapable of playing in the league. Just that his shelf life will have a 'short' expiration date.
Johnny Manziel = Pat White, but with an arrogant attitude. Both 6'-0' and 207+/- A couple of good lick'ns and his clock will stop tick'n
Greg Cote, from above: "I wonder if seven black teens in a white man's home would have been treated as such a harmless prank?" Greg, do you understand why branding works? Simply put, branding is "reputation." How about this hypothetical. Say you boarded a plane and saw seven middle eastern men, all in their 20's, sitting all around your 13F seat. Would you honestly say that concern would not enter your psyche? Are you that socially monotoned?!
Note to Harleyray: See Greg Cote's "preemptive strike" note (in grey highlight) above. Random Evidence of a Cluttered Blig is not, and will never be, a one sport (topic) town.
Oh, and btw, just a bit more for you to chew on. Dion Jordan played more sets and downs at the DE position than Ryan Tannehill played as a QB.
Stick to the facts, FZ. You can't win an argument by falsifying, or denying facts. You say: "I don't care was (where) he was listed as prior to the draft, the guy never played DE before." WRONG, In 2010, he switched from tight end to defensive end. He finished the season with 33 tackles and two sacks. As a first-year starter in 2011, Jordan was a first-team All-Pacific-12 Conference selection after recording 42 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, and 7.5 sacks. He was also named a first-team All-Pac-12 selection in 2012, after recording 44 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, and 5 sacks. The truth in your statement is that you "don't care" (about what the facts state). And please do tell exactly how it was that Joe Philbin screwed up "big time."
...I'll tell you what, FZ, allow me to send you a very talented fellow. He has done some electrical modifications on my unit, some plumbing as well as yard work. Since I know you not to be a clueless trainer, I know you will be able to coach-him-up in the quick and soon have him be your office's top insurance closer no sooner than your boss can say - "I expect great things, FZ."
FZB, the NFL 2013 player draft analysis had Dion listed as a DE. http://www.nfl.com/draft/2013/profiles/dion-jordan?id=2539288 Your son, Ireland, had visions of Jason Taylor. Cramming him down a HC who needed a LT more than a guy who has been miscast from day one. And you're right, Jordan did not enter as a DE. He did not enter as a LB either, but a TE/WR. He's a bundle of confusion trying to find a home for his extraordinary physical traits...in other words...a project. This is not, and was not EVER on Joe Philbin. Joe Philbin did not twist Jeff Ireland arm to go out there and trade up to get a guy who HE COULD NOT AUTOMATICALLY PLUG INTO A SPOT OF NEED. Let me repeat that, cause I know our culture can be particularly thick-headed. Ireland jammed the highest draft pick, A PROJECT OF A PLAYER, into a team that needed practically anything else but a DE. Moreover, one that (even by your own admission) was not a natural DE! Please stop misplacing blame. The fact remains that Ireland f/up, and also that Jordan is currently inept as a player. Ask yourself the obvious. Do you think for one second that Belichick would draft at #3, then take a player and that that player would not only start, but also distinguish himself during the first campaign, second and beyond? Forget DE, LB, TE, WR. Dion Jordan could not start in any of the 22 positions...on any team. Stop blaming Philbin for Ireland's F/Up.
Did y'all see Jadeveon Clowney destroy that Atlanta RB? At 6'-5" 266 lb., Clowney is smaller than the 6-6, 275 lb. Dion Jordan, yet Jordan is having a hard time playing better than a rookie 7th. rounder (Fede), hence the coaching's experimentation using him at LB. Even as early as it is this year, there is little doubt that Jadeveon Clowney will make the Texans a much improved team. Say minimum three win difference, yet Dion Jordan has a tough time getting on the field.

Caleb Sturgis must still be suffering from a groin pull, otherwise, his replacement, Harry Potter did manage to kick a 51 yard field goal. But I'm confused, I thought Potter was a seeker.
shadow, Reading the story which appears on the front page of the Miami Herald, reminds me that (correct me if I'm wrong) the senseless killing of Rabbi Joseph Raksin occurred right in your community. Thankfully, what is occurring in Gaza has somewhat subsided, along with the furor that ensues from demonstrations here at home. Stay safe, my friend. http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/08/14/4289365/rabbis-slaying-rocks-orthodox.html
I wish him and us Dolphins fan the best...then again, there are those who not. All of us here know who fits into each category.
Ass (sorry, had to) for the Miss BumBum contest; judging should not be so hard (again, sorry)...you just clamp on Erecto-meters© to every member (aah geeze) of the audience, butt for males from SF, Key West, and most Liberals and see which contestant receives the biggest rise.
You have to know that FZB's kid is VERY smart, as evidenced by his rolling of his eyes every time papa blurts out yet another "clueless, or back stabbing bitch comment.
Woods, ....at the end of the match he owed Eugene $75, to which he claimed executive privilege and gave himself amnesty.
