Those of you who closely follow the 49ers and their “49ers Studios” would have found yourself running into an episode or two of The Joe Show, a brief web series featuring everyone’s favorite left tackle, Joe Staley while he harasses the rest of the locker room or does some crazy stunt. Here’s him getting Jimmy Garoppolo to sing.
Well, the 49ers decided adequate to add some more player-based programing and much like Johnny Carson needs a second act and understudy in David Letterman, the 49ers have given defensive tackle DeForest Buckner his own web show.
Yes, this is just as awesome as it sounds.
The first episode takes place at the Pro Bowl where Buckner, George Kittle, and Kyle Juszczyk all made appearances. Was there much planning for this even a five second production meeting? Doubtful. Buckner didn’t even know the name of his own show until Juszczyk asks. What follows is a good two minutes of the greatest conversation burned into a YouTube video.
Yeah, kind of pointless. We are wondering what the left tackle situation will be when Staley finally calls it a career, but more importantly is what happens to The Joe Show. Hopefully they do the right thing and have Buckner be the one to take the slot of The Joe Show.
