dead men tell no tales...

...and drink no wine, and are therefore no good at parties

blah blah blah

I hope the Niners pick Aaron Rodgers with the first pick on Saturday. Rumor has it these days, that Alex Smith of Utah is the favored QB in the Niner camp... but that guy has the same agent who got Eli Manning retarded money last year, and convinced the young fuck to hold out for a few months before signing. The Niners are in pain and need a new face (and new arm), and now... not later. Rodgers could be drafted and signed within 24 hours, ready to go to work playing for the team he grew up following.

The last local quarterback who wanted to play for the Niners, but was skipped over by the Crimson'n'Gold? Tom Fucking Brady. The guy has, what, three Super Bowl rings and two Super Bowl MVP trophies? (maybe that's only one MVP, not sure)... anyway... it's a lot more Super Bowl action than the Niners have seen in the last decade and a half.

I'm biased as all hell towards Rodgers. The kid grew up in Chico, played for the Butte College Roadrunners in Durham, and then took Cal to their highest ranking in like 50 years, including a win in the 2003 Insight Bowl, and a trip to the 2004 Holiday Bowl (not to mention, one pass away from a Pac-10 title, Rose Bowl berth, and, possibly, a National Championship). The guy grew up a Joe Montana fan. He wore a ratty #16 t-shirt under his jersey all through college, for chrissakes.

He wants to be a Niner. That alone is rare enough these days.

I want Aaron Rodgers. Not Alex Smith, not Braylon Edwards, not Mike Williams, not Antrel Rolle. I want Aaron Rodgers. Dammit.
