    Niners have to face him next Monday, but as a fans of teams in the NFC West can we all agree to be happy that guy isn't in the division anymore?

  • No shit.

    Maybe the rest of the league should take notes on how to tackle properly. I still see players try and arm tackle, go for the ball, or try and make the high light play. So glad we don't have to worry about that (as much).

    Might not of been the point, didn't stop you from having to mention the Niners when you had no reason to. Like I said, you just add it in not matter the topic. Sorry I pointed it out. I can see how Remembering who Josh Wilson on the Seahawks has anything to do with the Niners playing him this weekend.

  • TBF a similar outcome probably occurs with all but our most beastly DBs (Browner, KamTrack, Maxwell).

    Earl probably gives him a vicious shot and ends up with a broken neck.

    That was just perfect pad level by a really big dude.

  • Wilson was outstanding on both defense and special teams in 2007 and 2008, a guy who's performance was worth far more to Seattle than the 5th rounder they got back. Had you asked me early in 2010 I would have said he was our 2nd best player after Brandon Mebane.

    The shitstorm came because the cult of John Morgan was in rare form at that time, the effects of which spread beyond fieldgulls, and also because Pete hadn't built any equity yet and was ditching off talented pieces for bargain prices to other teams. We also weren't fully aware yet just how committed he was to getting big in the secondary, which is the real reason Wilson was traded. And thanks to the Holmgren and Ruskell years, we also weren't used to getting ANY value from a pick after the third round, so it felt like we were giving Wilson away for nothing.

    But anyway, guess what? Wilson was yet another Tim Ruskell early bloomer. Even if Seattle had kept him, they probably would have only squeezed another solid year or two out of him. It blows my mind that the 5th round pick we got back for Wilson turned into Richard Sherman.

    Jackson looks like Terry Tate in that .gif. Wilson looks like mini-me.

    Yup, just madness to think of it now.

    I distinctly remember people saying Pete should be fired after the Wilson trade, as he obviously didn't know what he was doing. I got slated on another forum for even suggesting that perhaps he knew something us fans didn't or at the very least, he had a plan in place.

    And the concept of Kelly Jennings being a viable starting CB just makes me shudder.

    I think the same thought makes Kelly Jennings shudder as well.

    That was Jennings. Jennings was in the WR's hip pocket consistently, but that's all he could do. Just didn't have the ball skills or size to do anything once he was there.

    Yet another reason this FO is amazing...

    Turned Josh Wilson and Kelly Jennings into Richard Sherman and Clinton McDonald.

    He plays for the Deadskins, not the falcons? Niners don't play him this weekend, they've already used and abused him a couple weeks ago.

    He made a handful of memorable plays including a couple pick sixes. I'm almost 100% sure he could not make this roster today even back in his "good" years.

    As Kearly pointed out, he may have been the second best defender we had and I think that just shows how far we have come.

  • Between that trade and the Darryl Tapp for Chris Clemons and a pick trade, Field Gulls in particular blew up AND melted down at the same time.

  • I remember those days. Also remember watching every opposing receiver catching every ball because the D backs backpedaled 10 yards at the snap of the ball, then half the time the D back would whiff on the tackle. Drove me nuts. Good riddance. Our D backs may grab, beat up, hand fight, arm bar etc but at least they are challenging receivers. The single thing I really appreciate about Browner is that he sticks like glue to receivers AND can knock out a running back. Sherm is great in coverage but he has a little Deion in him. He is really good at hand fighting, mugging on the line also but he doesn't carry the big stick like Browner. Kam is the best of both worlds, unfortunately the rules don't allow him to do what he does best, knock players out, cold that is.

    The big, physical, fast and hard hitting secondary is the strength of the Hawks. Niner fans bitch about them but they would love to have the Hawks talent to create mayhem at those positions. They don't and that's where their biggest bitch comes from. It is also the difference between the two rivals. Yes, I said it, rivals.

    You know he is on the Redskins right? So, ya like I said. You just took any chance you have to mention the Niners. Never said it was a conspiracy, but I will claim it is idiocy.

    You should also check my reply on the Alex Smith / Russel Wilson discussion. I was working under the impression that you actually followed football.

  • The reason people liked Wilson so much was because he was the first DB we had since 2006 that seemed to have ball skills. Jennings, Tru, and Babs never seemed to go for the ints.. Wilson always went for them and it made him a fan favorite. It was absolutely maddening to watch Jennings LOCKED to a receiver and just let them catch it... Same for Tru. It was like they didn't know you could touch the ball before the receiver.... Just my less than reliable memory.
