First thing's first.
I don't have a mustache any longer. So enjoy this week's blue-collar inspired look for "Niner Talk." You probably won't see it until November. Maybe.
Patton was also a topic of discussion from the Faithful. So let's give an update on his on-field progress and touch on a few more topics in this week's bonus round.
@TaylorPrice49 what advice do you have for the team?— James Asher (@thejamesasher) July 28, 2014
First, let me brush up on my Harbaughisms. My simple advice would be:
Keep being the mighty men that your are. Play with contact courage. Don't be an error-repeater and everything will be A-plus-plus. Use your armor and build up a callus. Reduce drag at all costs so you can be a trusted agent. Not everything I say will be broken down Barney-style. That would be erroneous, erroneous and would be a low content-to-word ratio. Let us continue our scorched-earth plan and get knee to knee, eyeball to eye ball, so we can get one mile per hour faster and win with humble hearts. Who's got it better than us?
Watch him "Mic'd Up."
Pretty good, right?
Anybody who knows QP knows him to be an easy-going dude. He could have been upset about the team trading for
But when it comes to playing wide receiver, Patton has been making tons of catches just like his veteran colleagues. At Thursday's practice, Patton beat
I have a feeling Patton will get a lot of action in the preseason and will have a stage to showcase his growth.
Anything is possible. It really is.
The special teams ability will determine a lot of the roster decisions come cut-down day. It's really hard to speculate on how many players will be around at any given position. There's a reason why 49ers beat writers haven't predicted the 53-man roster just yet. There's too many close competitions across the board.
Let's play a few preseason games and see who looks good before we figure out how many players are carried at different spots, wide receiver included.
Ward had an interception on his first day of camp. Hyde is competing for a bigger role with the injuries to
I'd say Antoine Bethea and
The fourth-year passer looks like he'll be the backup quarterback to Kaepernick. Gabbert has good pocket stature. He's got arm strength and he's been finding the open man throughout camp. Gabbert has been praised by coaches for knowing the offensive system. He'll get a chance to demonstrate his development when preseason begins next week.
I'm not of an in-stadium nacho guy. I will try the vegan hot dog. Why not...
@TaylorPrice49 on a scale of 1-10 how scared would you be doing a 1-1 pass rush drill against Okoye?— AUGUSTUS WATERS (@theogjsonwill) July 28, 2014
Soon. Patience is a virtue.
Yes. Watch the video at the top of this post.
Hmmm... great question.
My nickname is TP.
As for the other good ones I've heard:
Anquan Boldin --- "Q"
Perrish Cox --- "P-Cox"
Colin Kaepernick --- "Kap"
Jimmie Ward --- "Jimmie the Kid"
