Think he's any better than Michael Stone?
"The 49ers released Parrish to make room for veteran linebacker Jay Foreman, ..."
Made me do a triple-take. Weird.
He has had a better career than Michael Stone, but he did not seem to recover after missing a good portion of 2005 with an injury. If you are a proponent of veterans being able to teach stuff to younger players, he would be a candidate. At issue would be that like most of the safeties on our roster already, his weakness has always been in coverage. I am assuming that recent enough injury and age (at least 30) has done nothing to improve Parrish in that respect.
I'm sure he's getting old at this point but when I followed him a year or two ago he was a top 10 safety.
We should bring him in for a tryout.
He's been in a Pro Bowl (the year he had 9 INTs) so I dont think he could be as bad as Brown.
We could also use some veteran leadership on the D.
is there a way we could get him is he just a fa now? im not familar with that stuff.
Bring 'em in!!
By the way did that article say that signed Jay Foreman? I thought he was completely out of football. They really must be desperate at the LB spot.
He was released from his contract so he is just a FA now.
I dont expect that the Texans will pick him up now since by the time he got used to our defense the season would be over.
But I would still like to have him.
It really isn't good when your team's 2 defensive leaders are a rookie (Ryans) & a 5-year veteran (Weaver).
I think our secondary would improve drastically with the leadership & ability that Parrish brings.
Depends on your outlook... I for one am glad to see a Rookie as a leader that will be a stable figure in the defense to come. It says a lot about the direction of the franchise.
It says a lot about the past too... but you can only whine and moan about the past and cannot change it.
I'm not doubting that Ryans is picking up the slack.
I just dont think he should be forced to because he is a rookie.
Rookies are supposed to learn from veterans in their early years & then they become leaders.
DeMeco stepped in & instantly became a leader. I am proud of him & I love the fact that he is on our team but I think it is unfair for him to have so much on his shoulders in just his rookie season.
He is still learning the transition from college to pros & players older than him are looking up at him.
We just dont have the luxury of having a lot of veteran leadership.
we should pick him up, keep him for the offseason and everything, maybe can get CC brown to play better, and hes a vet leader, if we can get him for cheap, then it would be a damn good idea
