My Ma always told me when I was a kid, “show me who you go with, and I’ll show you who you are”

...this confirms Shanahan is an idiot.. if you didn’t already know it from when he blew a SUPERBOWL win with the Turds.

Pretty sure the 9ers will go elsewhere and Jones will Fall to the late first round.🙂

If Shanahan and Lynch blow this pick, they will set back the franchise, which has been built with high first-round picks. If Jones is the preference, then there is less reason to keep Garoppolo in 2021. I have stated several times on this forum my opinion of Jones, and I see no reason for repetition. But I do offer this observation: If the 49ers traded up because Shanahan believes he needs a top 8 or so quarterback to win the Super Bowl, is Jones really the pick?

Yeah, going out there on one leg trying to get your QB the win speaks volumes about his personality and how it can't be depended on ....
Never said he wasn’t a hard worker and plays hard on the field. But the guy is crazy. You’re going to change the topic...whatever

Then what's the context if not depending on him on the field? Are we talking about being able to call him to get you from the airport or getting a good movie rec on Netflix or something? I'm confused. Dennis Rodman was crazy but he was pretty reliable during the playoffs for the Bulls.

That’d be amazing. If Smith falls I’m all over it. Tough to depend on CGM with his personality.
I’m probably in the minority, but I love MT. I try not to put all athletes in this prism to where they have to be clean cut, outstanding individuals, who says all of the right things. MT is young and his personality may rub some the wrong way, but I don’t see a problem with how he conducts himself. I didn’t like how he punched Ceedy, but I’m not going to vilify him for it. Those things happen and Ceedy is a professional instigator. If you poke a bear enough times, they will likely attack at some point. Now, with that being said, I do expect a little more from my QB. Only bc he could be perceived as the face of a franchise or head leader/captain.

I love most aspects about CGM. But he’s odd. Fantastic player with tremendous work ethic though.

No telling who they’re looking at; bet it’s something crazy like the 3rd string place holder or backup gunner.

This is who I thought we may be looking at. Not sure he’ll be there at 28 now though.

So, being a hard worker isn't a personality trait? Not understanding how I am changing the topic though. I thought we were talking about Mike's personality. If we are not, I apologize.

You aren’t willing to see the risk of CGM’s personality. When talking about risk you can’t only look at someone’s best attributes.

Well, my opinion has as much value as yours, even when the tone may defer.
I come around here open minded, trying to learn and give something to think about to fellow posters.

It is just opinions, nobody around here can predict with certainty what will happen.
I predicted with certainty that the Saints would trade a 1st and 3rd to New England for their 1st and draft Sedrick Ellis. Only thing I got wrong was that we got a 5th back as well.

The risks of CGM's personality? The fact that he will stand up for what he believes, even when mainstream America doesn't share those same beliefs, is that what we are talking about? Because he called Drew Brees out on his (Brees') BS? You are painting the picture that he is a borderline Bundy or Dahmer. Dude is an athlete who is proud of who he is. He is what, 25 or 26? He's a young man with a lot of money. There is nothing to be afraid of.

He didn't do anything of the sort. All he said about Brees is that he doesn't know better. That's not calling someone out.
