I get everyones hatred of Harbaugh. I fail to see how the 49ers are a classless group?

Sounds more like someone upset they keep losing to the 49ers.

I think having a WR like Crabtree that constantly runs his mouth, and a QB that seemingly kisses his bicep every time he picks up a first down (or mock's other peoples celebrations-i.e. Cam Newton) has something to do with it. It's just nice to see people get put in their place.

And I get that Rodgers did his title belt thing, which he hasn't done much of lately given the last 2 seasons. But I was honestly never a fan of that and can absolutely see how that rubbed a lot of people outside of Green Bay the wrong way.


Where did I miss that Crabtree is constantly running his mouth? Because Richard Sherman says he was? Seems like a credible source.

If SF is classless then I don't think you can even describe what Seattle is.

But I love the justification that Rodgers hasn't done his celebration much lately so its ok. Also you condemn Kaep for his celebration then suggest its wrong to mock Newton for his while never suggesting that Newton should be condemned for his.
Your response reeks of hypocrisy.


Crabtree's been an arrogant dbag since his texas tech days. Remember him holding out on SF after being drafted?

I never said Rodger's celebration was justified or "ok"; learn how to read.

I never suggested Newton's celebration is ok and that he shouldn't be "condemned" for it; learn how to read.

Once again dawg, you only see what you want to see and twist around someones words to create w/e story or angle you want.


So you must really love when the Packers get put in their place with all their celebrations. See Lambeau leap. See Clay Matthews. See Aaron Rodgers. See BJ Raji

I know you aren't saying its ok. But you are sitting here trashing the 9ers about celebrations and your team is well known for it. Accept it. YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE.

I don't know why, but I have absolutely no problem with some celebrations and absolutely hate others. The types of celebrations I'm fine with are things like the Lambeau leap, simple dances, or group celebrations. I don't like when guys do celebrations in which they try to show how awesome they are (Kaep's bicep kiss, Newton's Superman, Rodger's belt, etc.), but if a guy pretends to blow up a stick of dynamite or something stupid like that, I'm fine with it.

Oddly enough, I love Richard Sherman. He's the prototypical guy I hate. Loud-mouth who plays a little dirty and isn't quite as good as he thinks he is. But he's still pretty darn good. He's also a pretty smart guy, which, for some reason, makes me like the fact that he talks crap all game long because I'm pretty sure it's all a show to get inside guys' heads.

I would put Seattle and San Fran pretty much on the same level as far as classiness goes. I don't think either of them are legitimately dirty, but they play with a definite edge that, unfortunately, you aren't really allowed to play with anymore. They both have a few guys that trash talk a little bit too much during games (almost every team does, including the Packers, but it seems like both those teams have a couple more than the average). When you combine the trash talk with that extra physicality that most teams don't have, you get the perception that a team is dirty when, in reality, it probably isn't. Then you get guys like Whitner/Hitner and the "Legion of Boom" backing up and actually embracing that perception, and it's hard for fans of other teams to not feel that way about them.

Atlanta hired Scott Pioli as assistant GM.

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/10331790/scott-pioli-hired-atlanta-falcons-assistant-general-manager

Frankly.. I would have preferred to see Pioli in Green Bay helping Thompson.

09 Draft:
Rd 1 (Pick 3) - Tyson Jackson

10 Draft:
Rd 1 (Pick 5) - Eric Berry
Rd 2 (Pick 36) - Dexter McCluster
Rd 2 (Pick 50) - Javier Arenas

11 Draft:
Rd 3 (Pick 70) - Justin Houston

12 Draft:
Rd 1 (Pick 11) - Dontari Poe
Rd 3 (Pick 74) - Donald Stephenson

3 Pro Bowlers in 4 drafts. 75% hit rate- A pretty good amount.

Best part to, they are all defensive guys. Thompson clearly knows how to find offensive guys in the draft. Defense he's had problems with, and Pioli has drafted well on defense.
The Brewers will finish 90-72 and earn the #1 WC berth.

Carlos Gomez will have a 30/40 season (HR/SB) and win a 2nd Gold Glove en route to an All Star selection.

All these people coming out and saying how aghast and offended they are by the Sherman rant have about the same sense of timing as the Fox interview crew. Sherman is a passionate player, and if you made that big a play against a guy that's been chirping at you all season long, and that big play got you to the Super Bowl, you'd be a damn liar if you say you wouldn't have said what he said. And really, it's not like he threatened to eat Crabtree's children like a certain once-feared boxer said.



Well Iam a liar then! No way in my sane head would I have gone off like that in the interview. I may have said things to Crabtree as I was playing but never would have gone off on a rant like that. What he did was ill timed and stupid. Win with grace! I love how he plays but his arrogance is where I hope a receiver knocks him the hell out!


If the networks want to shove a mic in front of an athlete or coach right after an emotional contest.... roll the dice my friend.

These kind of interviews are worthless, especially the halftime ones.
Couldn't agree more, sp0rtsfan, been saying that for a long time now.
I will not apologize for being awesome.

For the record, so long as you count the UDFAs Thompson has had 8 in 10 years according to Wikipedia. 4 have been defensive players. And that includes last year's draft, while Pioli's numbers do not. Thompson has also had 2 FAs make the Pro Bowl, Woodson and Kuhn.

I don't think Pioli is a bad drafter by any means but it's not like he's brilliant. He pretty consistently had picks near the top of the draft and had mixed returns. Berry was good, Poe ended up being a huge risk that turned out brilliantly, but that's sort of what happens when you're picking near the top of the draft. Thompson's sole top-5 pick, AJ Hawk, has probably had a little better return on that investment than someone like Tyson Jackson. And Poe looks far better than Raji (who was taken in a similar spot) currently, but to this point in Poe's career it looks like how Raji's started out as well.

No doubt Pioli is a good talent evaluator, but there's not really any proof his performance has been so much better than Thompson's. And I have serious doubts Pioli would fit well on any staff that isn't from the Parcells/Belichick GM tree. As a person, he was really despised by the organization in KC.


Woodson was a 4 time pro bowler and 3 time all pro before he was signed in GB. He shouldn't even be mentioned in this conversation.

Harbaugh will have Urban Meyer retired from OSU by 2020.
