Golden Nuggets: Buckner got hosed

Good morning! Fooch flashed the Pat-signal and asked me to take the nuggets tonight so here I am to hand you some links.

I don’t have much to really go on besides the fact that DeForest Buckner got hosed not being selected to at least an alternate on the Pro-Bowl. Fooch says it better than I can. Buckner doesn’t have stats, how can you when the opposing team is running guys away from you? That’s not stats, that’s respect.

The 49ers defensive line as a whole seems to be gelling. I wouldn’t look in much to add to this current group. They just need to gel and they can be deadly. Solomon Thomas has been similar to Buckner but has shown a lot of great things that make him a great prospect. No more “Give them time”, Thomas has pulled his weight and that line is only going to get better.

But Buckner, man, should have been an alternate.
