I have plenty to say about that preseason game (which you’ll see in the content we have coming out today) but I’ll give you a gist of things right now:
- C.J. Beathard played an awful game, but stop the crazy talk of yanking him as the backup
- Richie James is going to have a NICE career in the NFL
- Jimmy Garoppolo...WTH?!
- Joe Williams may not be long for San Francisco
Beyond that, at least the 49ers won to keep my draft positioning alive. In my fantasy league, the way draft positioning is set it is based on the correct number of winners in the preseason. So the person with the most right picks gets to pick first (or where ever they want), and so on. I had the 49ers winning, but I’m also not sitting well, thanks to New Orleans just HAVING to come back against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Beyond that, the 49ers/Cowboys game was one of the worst games I was subjected to watch. It made other entertainment options, like sleeping, sound so much more attractive. With that rant, I’m going to give you some links.
