Being a 49er fan has taught me humility as a draft pundit

Like most NFL fans I know what's best for my team and would be a better Head Coach/GM than the people they pay to do those jobs..at least I used to think this before Harbalke put me in my place. Here are some notible quotes from my past about 49er draft choices:

2011 - "Who the @%$# is Aldon Smith!?!?!" (three minutes later after a youtube film session).. "Wow, he looks clumsy getting out of his stance..plays too high..I really don't like this pick, they should have drafted Nick Fairly. (the next day) "We traded up? Awesome, we're going to grab Titus Young, instant upgrade..Colin Kaepernick?!?!?!?! From Reno..is that a Community College? I don't know what these guys are doing, we need Scott McCloughlin back.."

2012 - "Who the @#$% is A.J. Jenkins..we should have drafted Gordy Glenn or moved up for DeCastro.. What are they going to do? Boone is too tall to play guard and if we were going to draft a reciever we should have gotten Stephen Hill."

So this year I have absolutely resigned myself to try to relax, enjoy my beer and trust the Head Coach and GM to make decisions at least almost as well as I could have.
