"He like he doesn't even have a set position right now. Right. Yeah. Because he was a running back and then a wide receiver. And now he's going to be some kind of offense of weapon. Right. And I think ultimately when you what you do with your first three rounds of picks. Is you say what? Do you do really, well, let's go ahead and take that and make that work at the NFL level and the Niners seemed to be especially in and around the third and fourth round and Namur with taking a player and then thinking that they can mold him. They have the quite frankly, arrogance to think that they can completely transform player into doing something that is new at a level that is much higher than they had to do it in college. And so far that has not been successful. And then when ends up happening is that player, unfortunately, get stuck in a loop. They get brought in to transfer to a different position or role. They don't do that. Well, so they moved back to a different role. And then they've only been doing that for your in the NFL, they don't do that. Well, and they keep ping pong and you end up with Jimmy ward or you end up with various more or you end up with these players or you end up with Solomon Solomon Thomas these players that you just don't have a fixed position for you. Don't let them learn their craft, and then you cut them or trade them because they're a bus when in reality. You didn't have a plan for them. And even if you did have a plan. It wasn't a good one because you should have just let them do what they do well and play to their strengths. And instead you thought to yourself with the CBA that limits all this practice time. I'm gonna go ahead and fix them. Look man, I wouldn't have been able to go to sleep at night. If we didn't get CJ Beathard on this roster. All right. I wasn't going to be able to sleep until day three of the draft. Yeah. It's it's it's it's tough. It's this would be a completely different conversation. If this is a player we're talking about taking with one of their two six round picks. Right where he very likely could have been available like this is a a top one hundred pick that you are expecting to take a player here that can come in and be an impact player for your team and be somebody that you can actually rely on right now Araj on a roster that is talented vision. And in a draft where there is a glut of talent in the second and third round. I mean, you think of the players that were still available when the Niners drafted this wide receiver. You look at the Cornerbacks. That were available a position of need for the forty Niners. And okay, we know the Niners don't value cornerback position as much as they do their front seven. They put a ton of resources in their front seven. But that doesn't mean that cornerback has a position doesn't exist. And so instead of going for a cornerback or instead of. Going for safety that can challenge Jimmy ward. They instead double down on a wide receiver. I get the position the players still confuses me. Yeah. I think that's that's what you really come back to you. Right. Is again, we bang the drum hard for coverage constantly and pass catchers again effect the passing game. This is better than them drafting a damn off ball linebacker in the third round for sure. And so I think that's why though you you are comfortable with deebo Samuel right while you're okay with that. You can say like, okay. Yeah. Let's let's deebo like I was really happy. That begins. Guests been brought like I'm not in a good place right now. Let's get back to talking about good stuff. Right. Well, I think you know, you look at deebo Samuel. And even though I think we would have argued all things being equal. If you have a cornerback that you like as much as you have deebo Sam as much as you like deebo Samuel there. Like, you take the cornerback. Because that's a thing that you need more direly right now on your roster. But you know, at the end of the day..

"You just paid one five million dollars Jimmy ward or at best. What's what's the what's the curve of outcomes in terms of probabilities, right? There's a probability that he could be very very good. Because if he gets back to the form that he had in two thousand sixteen then he's probably one of the best corners that's on the team right now in terms of pure talent. Absolutely probably the best yet. But but in terms of actually putting it together and production. He's someone who's proven that he can perform very very well in the types of things the forty Niners ask their corners to do. And I'm also glad that height. Be damned. I'm glad that the team didn't just stay away because oh, he's smaller. We want our corners to be long. It's like you need to do do can cover. I don't care if he's four foot eleven or eleven foot four can he fucking cover? They're going to move into free safety if they signed him. So it'll be fine. Shut your day. Yeah. I think I mean, that's that's really the thing right is when you get kind of to like the second window free agency signings really, which is guys that are you're kind of down either just lesser players in general that are going to be kind of depth options for you or guys like gerrad who have something that's kind of been wrong with them and their values lower. So they're looking for those those one year deals to kind of go in rebuild their value. And then go and hit the market again. And that's the option where or the potential there for just getting so much more value than what that contracts going to be worth because they're not going to sign him for a lot. I mean the dudes played. In what like three games in the last three seasons or something ridiculous? Like that. He's got like three hundred snaps over the last three years. These are the floor models at best buy. Yeah. There's something wrong with them. But you know, what? It's a great deal. It's a great value. And you run a little bit of a risk. But you know, what if it actually pans out one of two things happens either. They take a discount because they want to stay with the team that gave him a shot. Sure. Or they end up leaving for a big dollar contract. And then guess what? Do you get compensatory pick? Yeah. It works out. This is why these signings work out and instead of the Niners. Maybe they're going gonna get some management word of the hell knows. But Jason Brett bright shining star, which is amazing. So that dispenses with the news, actually, there's one thing. I didn't put on here. And we'll talk about it. Maybe when we talked about running backs because I think it's and you know, exactly what I'm talking about. But let's get to the forty Niners in really the meat of the episode resource allocation, I've been called all manner of things on Twitter over the last two days, I've had to step away from the computer several times, I really should've taken don't engage. I should've. Number one a couple days off, I should know better. By this point, you should two days off of work. But I've been I've been not too happy with the forty Niners moves as of late and for me, it's not necessarily about the players that they've signed our. Although there is some there are some problems with the players signed to me. It's really about what this tells us about how the team views roster construction what they prioritize and how they're trying to rebuild this roster..

"But as we as we expect the forty Niners should be a big player. Agency last year they have the money to make another splash this year. They had their their one of the top salary cap still, and they have guys coming off the books. Jimmy ward, Eric Armstead. These are guys that they're not resigning them no way their contracts are there. There's money there that can be freed up that that's even more than what it appears. I don't see them reciting Jimmy order arc Armstead. Do you. I would say definitely no on Jimmy ward arm said is maybe depends on if you see armed says not doing very well. He had a decent game last night. He he has clashes here and there. It's just a, it's a maybe like Jimmy ward though is not coming back. He's not a cornerback that fits their rented as a safety, right? And the Niners like longer Cornerbacks. He's not that guy. So everyone likes longer corners. You can that defense, though, that style of defense that press corner. Richard Sherman style, two, six, three type cornerback. But I do see them of if they keep rebuilding like they did last year persistent about signing players. This team can make some noise like they're, I think they're well coached team. I mean, you can say the future still looks bright. No question about it. Just seeing this game, they still play really well with backups. So if they have some starters, they could make some noise, but you don't see how the team make the playoffs. Obviously the Niners you don't see the Packers. I mean, like you mentioned, if. If the Packers they have Aaron Rodgers, they always have a chance you'd rather have Aaron Rodgers. Not defense has to help. I just don't see the my issue at the Packers at Aaron Rodgers is going to be healthy enough this season to to be able to sustain a if they need to win two or three games. I don't know is playing on a lake one limb. He and he didn't even get hit that much last night, but he's still looked like he was falling apart out there. His wrist hit a guy's helmet, which that hurt he had his his elbow, busted up in his bleed. Now's vizo. Beat up. His offense align is his knee definitely took a hit when he was getting tackled in the pocket. He ran for that first down, which is clutch, but you could tell the that took a lot out of him the the line, the defensive elephants line for the forty Niners actually impressing me yesterday they pressed me to be on the. Yeah. I mean, Aaron Rodgers had a lot of time to throw some of those plays, but but anything else about this one thinking? I'm just a, I think the Packers needed to win, but I didn't see anything last night that tells me that they are good enough to win a playoff berth or a division. Would you agree that I would agree to? And I would also say just going to those wells, the forty Niners they always you're not playoff contenders, but there is hope for the future. This team is not like dead in the water for years to come. I would say there's more hope for them than the teen than their crosstown rival the Oakland Raiders so well, we can talk about them on the next. We're going to break first and then we can talk about how the raiders charge about baseball though the. Three just happened brewers made a statement in their win the NBA season upon us, and we'll get on all of that when we return..

"Around and has done a lot for is on the last four five years, but they'll play that against your regular personnel with you know, a fullback and running back and tight end up played against do tight ends. I've even seen them getting heavy per running backs two tight ends played Nicola that so they wanna get after you speed, and aggression. So I think they can also get bit been working all week confirms scheme it up and for procedures to get the ball out of his hands. Quick injury wise, we talked about the offensive line the defensive backfield. And it looked like a Jimmy ward. They're saying tweaked a hamstring maven came in we talked about it earlier in the week and played pretty well. In fact, I think pro football focus, actually, put them on there. They're all defensive team this week. Don't know if Richards gonna play the all defensive one week, the all PF. For trophy in my dad or something. You know? What's funny, Johnny? You're not the only one. It's referenced everywhere. Hey, I was never a guy. The top corner and pro football. But how how obviously how important is that? Maybe have Richard play. I don't know how far along years to to get ward. I don't know how bad the hamstring is. But yeah, I saw Jimmy out there yesterday. And and again, I mean all these guys Jimmy's got the career as we know with with this issue injuries and and bone stuff to he just sat buzzards walk. So man, I hope we can go. I hope that thing loosens up by Sunday. In the meantime, that will increase the payload in the workload for maven who I think is just relishing this opportunity. Look, I'm gonna tell you right now. This team, and it's been mostly mental. And we've talked about all that stuff. I mean, I think these.

"So suddenly you're looking at like DJ read and what Antoinette. As the strong safety there who didn't have a great game this last week either. So it's going to be tough. I mean, the secondary's not in good shape. I will say that the not as much specific to this matchup I would really love to see Taveras more get some snaps I would do. I think at this point, if you're if you're Robert Sala and I don't know that he will do this because again, this goes back to kind of the poor personnel decision making. You've gotta understand that Jimmy ward is gone next year. You are not resigning that guy to a contract, you're just not. And so you have to play your guys and you've got to see what they've got because they're going to learn better from playing at this point. I don't know. This is where I think it's difficult for us as fans slash urine an actual paid analyst. I am. I pretend to be one on radio. I would. It's easy for us to say, I think, yes, see what you have in those guys, but these guys trying to win games and there and they've got to think to themselves. Okay. Yes. Perfect. Just have an experiment in a Petri dish aware. I'm playing these young guys, but if I don't win games, I could lose my job. And that means losing, you know, x, y, and z my family, blah, blah, blah. So I think it's difficult in that regard. I think that's why solid probably hangs onto the Malcolm Smith of the world and and plays Jimmy ward and doesn't play tar various more. But I think in a perfect world, you're thinking of the future, and this is why Shanahan has a six year deal. Solid doesn't right. I was going to say like this is in general NFL situations for coaches aren't great, right? It's just your most kind of counting the days till you're gonna get fired. It's just a matter of when not if and so I don't blame him for some of those decisions like that. If that's really what you're doing is like, hey, man, I got to try to keep my job right. And you did put out the best practice I can right now. I don't know that he's necessarily in jeopardy. I don't think that there's a lot of pressure for him to actually. Where they're looking to replace him. I don't think that Shanahan's gonna move that direction..

"Of the, forty Niners you know the one disappointing thing in the first half of the, Niners was Jimmy ward went out with the quad injury wards struggled in the first couple of, games of the preseason and his return is questionable, in the second half and he's just been dogged by injuries really throughout his. His brief NFL career so. Jimmy ward quad injury he is out at this point in his status of the second half is still yet to be determined now got the ball first and right away the Niners showing some, nice action on defense Fred Warner had a big strong hit. Against, the run. Solomon Thomas Jeremiah touch you. Had, a combo sack Curtis. Marsh got in there As well and win the Niners offensively hit the ground Alfred Morris was the, story the veteran running back at an eighteen yard run early. In, really an. Impressive first-half for Alfred Morris. Thirteen, carries seventy one yards Yet along of eleven yards what. Alfred Morris does is he runs effectively between the tackles he's got a pick and slide, about him he understands how, to read blocks and and he's looks like a. Real nice complement to jerick McKinnon, Matt, Brita so Morris running the ball actively in the first half. Was definitely, one of, the stories the Niners flu around. Defensively and and basically gave away nothing to Andrew luck and then on the forty Niners third offensive drive Morris would. Start started off with a nice run he had. You know another nice run on the Dr Jeffrey Wilson had a nice run a Garoppolo hit Marcus Goodwin on a sixteen yard pass that was. Out of bounds but the call stood because, there was no replay. And then, Robbie gold would hit from thirty seven yards out to Kappa, ten play thirty nine yard drive in about three and a half minutes so the Niners. Were on the board three. Nothing in on Indies fourth possession they would move the ball down the field and Andrew Lockwood find. Eric Ibran for a pitching Catch on a touch and to campus ten play seventy five yard drive and a little bit under five minutes in. Impressive performance there in that drive by by the colts and. Luck now the Niners would get it back. On their fourth possession of the first half their final position in the first half they would move the ball. Down the field and Garoppolo is exceptional on third down on third and six he found, Goodwin for a first down, for nineteen yards on third and one Morris ran. For a third for a first, down, and then Garoppolo found the rookie tight end Kollwitz on a. Third and, three to, move the ball down the field. And eventually the Niners would have to settle for a Robby Robby gold twenty seven yard field goal and that's where. It stands at halftime seven six but a captive. Sixteen play seventy three yard drive for the forty Niners so just looking at some of the numbers pure gar son is the leading receiver he's. Got two catches for sixty two yards it, was good to see. Garoppolo hook, up with Garson who most likely is is going to be, as number one receiver we all Mark Goodwin with three catches for forty yards in the first half he was affective garoppolos numbers were not that great as far. As, completion percentage he was seven of sixteen for one hundred and fourteen yards no touchdowns no picks he was nearly picked, by Darius Leonard at the end of the first half as I said Morris is your leading rusher at. Five and a half yards Kerry and Fred Warner is your leading tack or on defense Warner I think would have you'd have to say has been very impressive five tackles three from solo we got in there for a tackle for a loss. We also saw Jeremiah tau chew get to the quarterback for the first time that has been a. Point of interest can the Niners rush. The, quarterback, off the edges and attaching notched his his sack today and also had. A tackle for a loss of impressive first-half, by some of the young Niners Fred. Warner on defense Reuben foster Salman Thomas all. Those guys playing strong and. Then the offense Alfred Morris death with the story as he looks like a nice compliment to the spa Feedbacks of McKinnon and Brita all right second, half action with Bob kina in Dennis from Indy is coming up right after these messages Cagy. Al eight ten at the sausalito art festival and pick up your.

"Pretty high, picks that I don't know where they of fit in what what do. You? Think is is the projection for either one. Of those guys because they make it pass by yeah. Well I I think they're different from this standpoint I mean, armstead's plate and Armstead has played respectably when he's, been on the field right that last element is the key with him stay on the field Garnett hasn't done that yet and especially. This current crew hasn't seen him they've not seen him play and so it's it's odd because I think Armstead just has to get on, the field he just has to show. That he can get back on the, field, and stay, there Garnett had to, guess to prove it I think he's you know, it's weird to say that about, a first, round draft, pick, but I. Think he has to prove it and it's, really jarring, it and you frame this big picture just we know how much change that John Lynch and Kyle. Shanahan brought to this organization and almost all of it has been good and a lot of it was necessary but? Now. You, think, about what's happened since the last game. Of last, season we're Eric Reed has moved on where Jimmy ward we don't know. Right? Where where he stands right now Armstead is. Implying and Garnett is We don't. Know really it's, really those, are all first round picks four straight years first round picks, and and I couldn't sit here right now and guarantee I know redesign here obviously and I can't guarantee that any of the other three are going to, be on the field in week one that's that's kind of crazy when you think, about four straight years a number one.
