Last year folks pointed to the Niners as the miracle turn-around team. But the Niners you see today have been building since 2005 when they drafted Alex Smith and Frank Gore.
There were years when the guys we cut ended up totally out of football. Now other teams are raiding our practice squad and snapping up folks we cut within days.
You want signs of respect. There it is right there. When other teams can't wait to see who you cut so they can snag a possible starter, that, my friends, is the ultimate in respect IMHO.
Yep. Our cast-offs are now considered top notch. That is definitely a sign of progress and respect.
And you just know teams are keeping a careful eye on TJ Yates and Case Keenum. They're probably salivating over Yates, especially.
