    14th in total yards.

    The more I look up stats, the more that 12 m, on top of breaking girls jaws, looks like way too much.

    The difference was Budda was a rookie & CJ a vet. A vet could handle the adversity better than the rook.

    Thought of the day.

    Budda Baker is more Earl Thomas than Tyrann Mathieu in terms of skill set.

    Earl Thomas was a ball hawk with 8 INTs though his first three seasons — 5 as a rookie.

    Again, TM and Baker are alike in that the further they are from the LOS, the less impactful they are. That said, TM is much more versatile as a player; he’s prolly better across the board (slot, box, deep, leadership) than Baker is.

    Apparently Earl Thomas was a complete disaster in Baltimore. And veterans on that D went to the GM and said he had to go.

    David Lombardi had a great article in the Athletic yesterday: 49ers’ George Kittle is ready to resume showdown with Arizona’s Budda Baker. It featured many quotes by 49ers players and coaches regarding Baker (as well as quotes by Cards players and coaches regarding Kittle). Here are a few of them:

    Regarding last season's play where Kittle posterized Baker and scored:
    Final word from Kittle:
    Sure, teams typically fluff up their opponent before games... "anti-locker room material" - but it sure seems as though the 49ers have more respect for Baker than many posters here.

    yeah... lots of respect while licking their chops so Kittle can manhandle him again.

    I thought Budda had a very good game. Was constantly cleaning up everyone else’s missed tackles. Dude’s a baller.

    This excuse is then removed for this season. Let’s see an interception. Just one. One.

    13 sacks is excelling for any defensive player.

    Hmm, I decided to look into this regarding passes defensed (can’t really look at int’s with budda having ZERO).

    Budda had 14 pass defenses over his first three seasons. He averages 4.8 over 16 games.

    Earl had 22. On a 16 game basis earl averaged 8.6 per.

    Badger had 30 in his first three years (17 in year 3!!!). He averages 10 per 16 games (that’s gotta be ridiculously high).

    Out of curiosity I checked out Adrian Wilson: 21 in first three years. Surprising 8.8 per 16 games (and 6 years with 9+, four years with double digit pass defenses, and years with 13 and 14). And Wilson wasn’t ever considered a coverage safety.

    budda is not good in coverage.

    People around here refuse to admit that. You have madcard posting a smidge of highlight videos of him actually defending a couple of passes As prooof. Lol
