Damn, that Willis is good.

I was just re-watching the 49er-Cards highlights and I gotta say the guy is one hell of a player. I found myself regretting, deep down, not trading down to get him, with possibly more picks or future first's

Before you guys start on me: picture this. We trade down to #10, where the Falcons were, falcons get #2, which means calvin, we get #10 (Willis) plus next years #1.

That's a top 5 pick AND willis. God we could get a top-end CB and Calais Campbell in the first. Or maybe Brian Brown, Andre' Woodson, Colt Brennan, Maybe, if the running game keeps dissapointing us, DMC... It would have been a coup.

Just saying, I love CJ, but that would've been amazing.

Either way is win/win.. I wanted Patrick Willis bad.. but CJ is my God! I can't complain at all.

I'm not complaining, I was just thinking that... wow we'd get Willis + high draft pick next year (campbell) which just wowed me.

It's definitely a "wow" situation.

Sims and Willis... with another 1st round pick next year.

If CJ is everything we think he is, I'd rather have him. But... it's interesting to think about.

Can you imagine having Calvin and Poz right now? Guess Millen couldn't.

Would I like Poz right now? Hell yeah. But, if Stanton is everything Martz thinks he can be, I'd take him over Poz any day. Stanton gives the QB position "hope" for the post-Kitna era.

I just think we reached on Stanton also. I think there was a way for us to stay and take Poz and still leave the draft with Stanton. But I don't know how much GM's look to the future, but there are around 4 QBs that I would take in this draft over Stanton. Plus I still don't trust Martz to stick around.

Didn't Millen try desperately to trade down but no one would do it?

I don't think it was like that. I remember reading articles about how he knew how great a prospect CJ was that he was only going to move down for an offer that really "wow'ed" him. If the team wasn't going to give up the farm he wasn't going to move down. So he wasn't calling teams he was letting the teams call him.

That is EXACTLY what I was hoping for at the time!!!

I like CJ a ton..........but you also have to wonder how in the world can they re-sign Roy in a few years with that much CA$H already dedicated to WRs.

AND........like you said.......we could have had the MLB we desparately needed PLUS an impact player in the 2008 draft.


Millen was simply too desparate himself to make them look decent sooner rather than for the long-term.........which is why teams like the Patriots can stay at the top by drafting the way they do.

One player a team does not make.

If they had been able to trade down, they would've taken Leon Hall over Willis....according to killer, and continue to let *cough* Paris Lenon start at MLB.

oh ok. that's pretty millenesque

don't get me wrong: I love having CJ, so I'm not critisizing Millen's choice.

EDIT: Athough I do hate him for not getting Poz.

Sims is scary.

The Dazzler? haha are you serious?

You mean like this Dazzler? The chick in the X-Men? No I don't think so.



Compare to original Megatron, who transforms into a laser-sighted handgun:

I'll take Megatron over "The Dazzler."

I "lulz" at Cutler and his "Ohmygodthepressureiscoming, Ibetterhurryandthrowtheballrandomlybehindme" play he did against the Bills in week 1.

That showed me the incredibleness that is Jay Cutler.

How about this for a nickname, Calvin J. and for Sims, SimsGoodness... did you think of those all by yourself? I like the "Sims" one... Ernie "Sims" Sims... has a nice ring to it.

You have no imagination.

Guess you turned the game off before you would have seen him lead us down the field for the game winning FG as time expired, including two 4th down conversions.

Nope... watched that too. I watched him struggle to lead the offense against a weak Bills D and get bailed out by the kicker as time expired.

Either way, it was a win... so I'll give him that.

with a name like megatron he shouldn't really look like thatHe's a transformer, silly... he can look like anything he wants.
