First I cannot resist debunking the RG3 invincible myth; he is as vulnerable as any 49er on the roster in regards to succumbing to injury. But what I cannot fathom is, the Redskins literally risked the health of his knee by putting him out there, "scaring team doctor Dr. Andrews" by making RG3 inaccessible while he went back on the field on a bad knee which of course took a turn for the worst.
That shows how self-centered the Redskins are, because the backup Cousins would have done a better job than RG3 as a capable backup who has fresh legs and a decent arm. And I rather emphasize stupidity over self-centered ambitions in hopes of driving the team on a course to the Super Bowl, which wasn't going to happen for the Redskins on a bad leg anyway.
A saying goes, "eat the leg and hope for the best."
I would add salt on a fried leg anyway. This statement is fitting because they chose to play a QB with bad legs over one with good legs.
No wonder they are called "The Redskins."
Let's go to the Chip Kelly sweepstakes-turned-into-Nike-influence, he is better off staying with the Oregon Ducks anyway as they can keep up with the extremely fast tempo of practices which wouldn't have translated well to the NFL anyway. At least Chip Kelly probably wined and dined on duck pate with the teams vying for his coaching services. What coach wouldn't want to be flattered and courted like a classic Romeo and Juliet courtship? With that said, Chip Kelly can go back to work with sweet mustard dip on his lips.
It was almost too funny when McCarthy claimed the Minnesota Viking backup QB Mister Webb actually prepared them for the type of offensive play Kaepernick does as the 49er QB. Webb is NOT Kap. Not even a version or an exact version of Kap's abilities. Webb might have played a little role as a "scout QB" in the game against the Packers, but that is just about it.
Kaepernick is Captain Kap. Webb is just a "waterboy" who got thrown into the den of lions who happen to love cheese.
And Webb was their cheese.
Whoa? Why the concern over Vernon Davis' near non-existence the past several games, or at least half a season? Did we forget we have other playmakers such as Michael Crabtree or even a Celek? Delanie always had been a formidable target to throw to despite some drops, and they have Randy Moss whose number #84 will come back and haunt some teams.
With that said, look for Vernon Davis to leave his painting canvas in his art gallery at Santana Row and show up on the field ready to do his foot artwork. He is an artist, both in the gallery and on the field, so look for #85.
I ran into Michael Crabtree as he left AT&T after paying his phone bill, the enounter happened when I was heading to Panda's Express next door from AT&T on Stevens Creek Blvd in Cupertino, CA. Of course, he was wearing his usual hoodie and his look brightened up when I told him to "go for the Super Bowl."
Every current 49er I met in the past 3 months all glowed when I uttered the word "Super Bowl."
All what counts is the sparkle in all the 49er players' eyes at the prospect of winning the Super Bowl.
And guess what - one former Niner player Roger Craig has his sights set on making it to the Hall of Fame.
For sure, as proven to me, being a 49er makes them a winner.
For now, the hyped up RG3 has to sit out the playoffs heading into the postseason with a damaged knee and Chip Kelly is back where he belongs- in college football.
McCarthy? He will wish he had shut his mouth up.
