I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
I love the posters who think they "know-it-all" because they use hindsight to credit themselves and make them feel all warm and cuddly inside.
I love your sig Vaark. Im sure WV wont like it though.
Honestly I wasn't on board with Kaepernick ever, but the guy has shut my mouth, he is a badass and the last time a first year starting quarterback won a Super Bowl was Tom Brady. So he's headed into good company if he accomplishes it.
And the scary part is, the Patriots had a scary good defense back then and San Francisco has a pretty damn good defense themselves too, and they're young. This is a team that is going to stick around for a long, LONG time.
My girlfriend being from San Francisco has made me root for the 49ers.
Funny thing about Matt Ryan since so many here crucify BP and Ireland for drafting Long and insisting that Ryan is an elite QB. Listening to NFL network on Sirius today, a couple of Falcons fans called in and were bashing Ryan for allowing the Seahawks and Niners to comeback from nearly 20 pts down 2 weeks in a row. They complained of his tendency to play poorly in big games and inability to put teams away.
One caller actually compared him to Romo (good stats during the season, but choking in the playoffs).
I think their arguments were a bit hyperbolic. However, considering the talent he has around him (Roddy White, Julio Jones, Gonzalez, Michael Turner), he should be expected to do better. I think he's a bit of a disappointment and certainly doesn't live up to nickname.
How well would Tannehill look with that surrounding cast?
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Kaep is far from a great thrower. He's going to get eaten alive when defenses get tape on him. He's a TREMENDOUS runner though.
look forward, not backward
