Tank Carradine - DL - 49ers

49ers second-round DE Tank Carradine (ACL surgery) is not close to practicing.
Carradine opened camp on the active/PUP list, and may stay on reserve/PUP into the season. Viewed internally as the 49ers' heir apparent to RE Justin Smith, Carradine's rehab has been "slowed down" by club medical staff since running a 4.93 forty just before the draft. Reserve/PUP would cost him six games.

Thank god we didn't trade up for this guy.

Overreact much? 49'ers are known for benching rookies. LaMichael James was a healthy scratch for the entire 2012 season too. I'm sure they'll be just fine with Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks at OLB to start the season. Broncos don't have that luxury. Quanterus Smith is practicing and will play in the preseason even though he is wearing a brace and still having issues.

I wanted no part of him in the first and was adamant about it.
In the second round he was good value though, even with the injury you're drafting him for the next 10 seasons and not just instant production for this current one.

49ers could afford to wait for him to take his time. Trading up for him wo uld have been a disaster for us though.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports Eddie Lacy was the "standout" player at Saturday night's intrasquad scrimmage.
(The same player who was deemed "fat" and "out of shape" by Twitter rumor mongers earlier in the week.) Lacy broke off consecutive runs of 7, 16, 19, 4, 8 and 4 yards. RBs coach Alex Van Pelt downplayed Lacy's allegedly-suspect conditioning after the scrimmage, saying, "I think it's just him." James Starks got the start, Lacy was next, Johnathan Franklin was third, and Alex Green was fourth. Lacy racked up 65 yards on eight carries and played a team-high 17 snaps, one ahead of Starks and two more than Franklin. The Packers open the preseason Friday night against Arizona. Lacy remains the clear favorite to be Green Bay's lead dog.

Not bad for a fat man.

Wrong analogy. More like a disgruntled employee telling you off.

In the 2nd round it's good value even if it was us. But not in the 1st, even if the 49ers had taken him.

He completed 59% of his passes, for 11,631 with 71 TD's vs. 47 INT's.....why he gets trashed so much on here is beyond me.

Well technically it was at one irritating fan...probably one of those Jay rated as a 6 instead of all those 10's who watch and root for the Bears.

Shanny felt Plummer was not going to be able to take the Broncos the the SB and win so He saw a chance to get what he believed to be a franchise QB ( without even as much as having to ever meant him let alone interviewed him) and did. Shanny could not wait to get his new toy (Savior) on to the field.

Jake had always played the game of football the only way he knew how, with heart, when he realized he had become a place holder that April day Cutler (curse him) donned the Broncos cap Jake was never again the same player, Shanny's move took Jake's heart out of the game and he was done as the fun gutsy player that many of us enjoyed watching. Many including Shanny used Plummer's disheartened, place keeper's play as a reason to insert his toy 8 games in his rookie season. Plummer in his mind retired from the game he loved that day it just took awhile to file the paperwork.

I admire Jake Plummer the man.

This is the last time I am going to post about Plummer in the Around the NFL thread, at least until the next time it comes up a few months from now.

Your Wrong, read "A Few Seconds of Panic" and if you want to discuss it further bump a Plummer thread.

Fact is the guy did not want to lead and he quit on the team.

Not saying Shanny was wrong to make a move to get a franchise QB but where he was wrong was not to have had a sit down with Cutler to see if he had the mental side to be a franchise qb. That was gross dereliction of duty from the GM side. Shanny's ego got him in the end in Denver.

He quit on the team right after Shanahan not only quit on him but forced him into an untenable situation given Plummer's nature.

a George Plimpton wanna be says Jake quit on the team?

Jake had led the Broncos to 3 consecutive playoff appearances, was 32-11 (.744 winning %) as a starter for the Broncos prior to the 2006 NFL Draft, had arguably his best season and helped the Broncos to an AFCCG appearance.

Now imagine you're Jake sitting at home and you hear "with the 11th pick of the 2006 NFL draft the Denver Broncos select Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt" and tell me that wouldn't give you a fricking attitude?

Imagine going into work tomorrow morning and finding out that your replacment was just hired by your supervisor, and every mistake you make from that moment forward will be amplified while your past contributions to the company's success are evidently not appreciated.

meh, it happens....

people get traded and are hurt by it and lash out. people get cut and do likewise....people get dissed because they were by passed by this team or that team in the draft....it is what it is.

Jake let his emotions get away from him and flipped off a fan or three.....hell even Elway lashed out at living under a microscope in Denver. no big deal...
