Donte Whitner has filed paperwork to change his last name to Hitner.   Seriously.

Crazy. 14 sacks in '11, 19.5 last year, 4.5 in 3 games this year.... his absence really can't be overlooked.

It's unreal how these guys can't get away from this stuff.

It's very sad. Hope that he can get his life turned around...sounds like his career could be put on hold.

Good news for SF is that they have a lot of depth.

The defense has given up 14 points in two games since he left the team after giving up 20+ in the first three games of the season with him. Patrick Willis also missed the last two games. That's some pretty solid depth when you lose two of the best linebackers in football and your defense shuts down two teams in a row.

Reading that, I was reminded of this great story about Jed York that I read several weeks ago. Doesn't go into the exit from SF much, but it does talk about all the effort he put in to getting the new stadium built, as well as how he has had a direct role in just about every major decision that has turned the franchise around. Also mentions the close relationship he has with his uncle, re-hashes some of those issues, and mentions a couple things about it that I wasn't aware of. It's a very good read.

Aldon Smith activated. Will be used as situational pass rusher to start.

9-4 after beating Seattle.. have won 8 of their last 10... the 2 losses being a 1 point loss to Carolina, and a 3 point loss at NO.

Like others have said, as long as the road is going through Seattle, I have a hard time seeing them(or another team) making it to the SB.

Yeah, they've been outscored like 49-13 or something close to that in their last two @ Seattle. Even when they have beaten Seattle at home it's been close games. Seattle is clearly better but it wouldn't be the biggest upset if SF could pull it off in the playoffs.

Interesting debate topic for sports nerds: has any arena/stadium had a better collection of athletes call it "home" than Candlestick Park? Montana, Rice, Young, Mays, Lott, Marichal, Cepeda, Bonds, McCovey. Impressive.

Well, the obvious choice would be Yankee Stadium. But that's pretty close.

 

MSG, too. The Garden and the Forum.

 

And, of course, can't sleep on Memorial.

Great question, I think the answer might be no.

 

LA Coliseum- got the early Dodger teams (Sandy Koufax, Duke Snider, Don Drysdale) , great Raiders teams (Bo Jackson, Marcus Allen, Jim Plunkett, Howie Long) and USC football.

 

Yankee Stadium- Giants only played there for 17 years, but they had a bunch of HOFers and played the Greatest Game Ever there.

 

The collection of talent at Memorial was pretty good -- Johnny U, Brooks, Palmer, Eddie, Cal, Raymond Berry, Lenny Moore, Art Donovan, Gino Marchetti.

 

 

I'm seeing DJ's post as I type, were in agreement with a lot -- was brainstorming stadiums mostly. The Forum I assume you mean LA.

If we include the Packers playing at Milwaukee County Stadium we can throw in those legends with Eddie Matthews, Hank Aaron, Warren Spahn, Robin Yount, and Paul Molitor.

How many years does a player have to call the stadium home to count? Deion played one year at Candlestick. Ray Lewis played two at Memorial.

Yeah that's where it gets dicey, I have a hard time saying Ray made his mark at Memorial, the 9ers won a SB the year Deion was there IIRC.

 

I'm not sure if you want to attach a certain amount of years, just more if they were an important part of a stadium's history.
