Here is Monte Poole's opinion.....he says Al's quote is only slightly more wicked than Saints DC speech:
http://www.insidebayarea.com/49ers/ci_20333343/poole-williams-speech-only-slightly-more-graphic-than

Not at all.  All was not wrong to say that.  Telling your men to go out and play hard, physical football is completely different than offering bounties and targeting body parts.  Monte Poole is a hack.

Warren Sapp on latest regarding Saints DC Gregg Williams,"Most heinous, egregious thing in history' of NFL"

http://www.insidebayarea.com/raiders/ci_20337023/warren-sapp-most-heinous-egregious-thing-history-nfl

I don't like Sapp at all but he is spot on with this.  WHY IS NEW ORLEANS IN THE HALL OF FAME GAME THIS YEAR?!  This is a dirty team from the top down.  Hence, this is also why our new HC is mum about all of it. 

I want a win when this fake-ass new "America's team" that the media hyped up comes to Oaktown this fall...no cheap shots or trying to take out guys...just play 'em hard and let the "Aints" know who they're playing!  Tyvon Branch and Mike Mitchell I'm talking to you!

VOTE NOW for '76 Raiders in Greatest Team of All Time competition!
« Reply #46 on: March 27, 2012, 09:10:23 PM »
The 1976 Raiders won their quarter final matchup against the 1999 Rams in NFL.com's  "Greatest Team of All Time" competition...BARELY.

To make it to the semis, the '76 Raiders have beaten the '66 Packers, the '93 Cowboys, the '78 Steelers, and the '99 Rams. Two rounds to go for the Championship of All-Time!

Here's an article about their win in the Quarter-Finals.
http://www.silverandblackpride.com/2012/3/27/2905432/76-oakland-raiders-head-to-g-o-a-t-final-four


The semi-final voting round has begun, pitting the 1976 Raiders against the 1985 Bears to earn a spot against either the 2000 Ravens or the 1984 49ers in the final.

The Bears are currently leading the Raiders in the voting 54% to 46%, so VOTE NOW! Click on the '76 Raiders vs '85 Bears bracket (at the link below), then drag the slider towards the Raiders helmet.

Vote here, as many times as you'd like, on NFL.com:
http://www.nfl.com/features/bracketology/alltimeteams?round=5

I had to refresh my browser window after voting the 1st time, before it would let me vote again.

They have a video you can watch, where they analyze the hypothetical matchup...and it wasn't bad....except naturally they gave their opinions that the '85 Bears would have won the matchup.

Semi-Final voting lasts till 5pm Eastern Time tomorrow, Wednesday March 28th.... then the Finals voting ends on Friday March 30th, at 5pm Eastern.

Tim Tebow traded to NY Jets

The Broncos traded Tim Tebow plus their 7th round pick to the Jets for their 4th and 6th round picks in 2012. Boy, the Broncos didn't get much for Tebow considering they drafted him in the 1st round.

Leinart could be no worse than Boller in my opinion....or maybe he could.  We desperately need a backup QB...man I wish we would have retained Jason Campbell.

http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_20213603/inman-tim-tebow-49ers-could-denver-broncos-star

I love it! I heard them talking about this on bay area radio this morning and couldn't wait to call my 49ers fan friend Mike. He hadn't heard about it, so I really got him going. I said, "well....are you ready to get down on your knee by your end-zone seat and start "Tebowing" with your fist under your chin? He was moaning, "ohhhhh noooo". I tried to call Greg to add him in as a conference call, so we could both rub it in to Mike.... but he didn't answer darn it!  ;D

Guess SF bowed out.  Reports now are GB, Miami, and Jax in the hunt for Tebow with a the Jets as a longshot

Well the Dolphins signed Garrard to a 1 year deal so I'd say Smith will stay with the Niner :/

Probably Leinhart given his history with Greg Knapp....thoughts?

Per Adam Schefter, The Tennessee Titans and Kamerion Wimbley have agreed to terms on a 5-year, $35 million deal with the DE/OLB.   He could restructured here for that amount, but he didn't want to.  Good riddance.

Does tebow get traded or does he remain a backup behind manning? This is how you make 15+ completions per game says manning :p

Sign Here   X________

They have to trade him.  1st pick Peyton throws they'll be cheering for Tebow to come in.  Primadonna Peyton does not want that around.  That horsefaced-looking John Elway has been shitting on Tebow since he got there.  Now is his chance to trade him.  Denver is straight up classless.  Elway talking about how they "haven't found their quarterback" in the middle of the kid's winning streak.  Then he has the balls to give Tebow a great big bear hug on the sidelines after each win.

FUCK THEM

The only silver lining would be if Alex Smith signs with the Dolphins. Not that we should be that concerned with the welfare of the 49ers....but.....you know what I'm saying.  ;)

Then the Niners can pick up Tebow :P

Ugh...now we gotta deal with Peyton twice a year :(

Bring it on! That's all I gotta say! We're the Raiders!!!

Peyton Manning picks Broncos

Without a doubt!  Broncos are the weakest of his "top 3".  Picking the Cardinals would have more of an upside.

The only silver lining would be if Alex Smith signs with the Dolphins. Not that we should be that concerned with the welfare of the 49ers....but.....you know what I'm saying.  ;)

Ugh...now we gotta deal with Peyton twice a year :(
