    Don't get the hopes up. If he ends up being good, it'll be a pleasant surprise. Get ready for some heavy roster restructuring next offseason.

    Yup. It'll be exciting as heck when Kubiak's pieces fall into place.

    I wish Roc didn't get hurt. He's a player.

    I always laugh when someone says that .1 seconds differance in a 40 time on indoor turf not wearing anything but shorts and T-shirt is worrying...good times



    40 time= most overrated stat of all time

    Well, any help we can get at CB im all for it. Even if he doesn't make a big impact. I would be happy with a little impact.

    I run a 4.52 in the 40, and I guarantee i couldn't cover one receiver in the nfl, even the ones that run the 40 slower than me. 40 time is highly overrated. There is a receiver on my team that runs a 4.8, but beats me 70% of the time in 1on1 drills.


    btw... interesting tidbit... we are playing kubiak's old team on friday...lol...

    i remember, i was kinda mad in the 04 season when one of our safeties went down, near the end of the season, and instead of puttin him im the game they put some other cat in, and i wasnt happy cause i always knew that he was a good player, but capers never gave him any playing time

    I'm waaaay late on this thread- but I feel like I've got some insight into Derrick Johnson's potential, so I'll share it with you guys. First of all, I'm a life long Charger fan, but I taught and coached track in Southern California and had the pleasure of knowing Derrick and his extended family (I coached his cousins) while he attended Notre Dame HS. I joined this board just so I could follow any news or comments on Derrick.

    I followed his career at UW- he was a Frosh All American at UW and was a starting CB in the PAC 10 for his entire career- was almost the UW career INT leader- he's got the goods. He's one of the best raw athletes I saw come out of Southern California in the 12 years I was teaching and coaching there.

    I was SHOCKED at the news that the 49er's released him- from what I can gather via internet, he had a groin injury in camp which slowed him down- coming into camp he was supposed to be battling for a starting position. He's an amazing athlete who has a nose for the ball- I hate to use cliche terms like "ball hawk" , but he had 3 picks in preseason last year and returned a fumble 78 yds for a TD in the regular season.

    Flat out- the kid can play. I don't know the deal in SF, but I can tell you (based on my time knowing him and time spent around him) that I doubt it had anything to do with attitude or discipline. He was one of the most talented, friendly and respectful kids I spent time around as a coach.

    He might not be a lock for the next 10 Pro Bowls, but I believe that given the chance to play, he could very well be a solid starting CB in the NFL for a few seasons.
