    You know, I loved Marshawn at Cal...but I had concerns about his ankles & feet...
    and the fact that he's slightly insane...so I didn't push for the Chargers to get him.
    (Jury's still out on ML, in my book...some amazing highlights, but just a good career, so far)

    Likewise, as awesome as Jahvid Best was at Cal, I didn't want the Chargers to draft
    him because I didn't think he'd be able to take the big hits of the NFL.
    (Jahvid was drafted in same round as Ryan Mathews, but is already out of football)

    It's funny, everyone on his team is yelling at him and he's trying to give them hugs and kisses

    I remember that run back... That's why he was cut the following week. Is this a upgrade to Royal and Woody?. .Something must be in the works... Has long as he can keep it "G"....!

    Think he'll play a role similar to Goodman. He'll be primary KR and possibly PR, and the gunner on ST's. But, he can also line up and catch the ball. He caught 47 balls in 2011 for 23 first downs and broke it out 5 times for 20+ yards.

    This is to keep Woodhead and Royal from taking punishing hits on kick returns as well. Because we need both of those guys.

    He was cut for that? It seems a bit extreme.

    I didn't know taking your helmet off was against the rules.

    p.s. It's not clear if the 3 penalties Hawkins committed that night were the difference...
    people posting after he was cut often mentioned them, but Hawkins was on the
    bubble anyway...
    the stupid penalties might have been the final straw, but I don't remember the 'Niners ever saying he was cut for that.


    p.p.s. Charger / Raider game just moved again to 4:41 a.m 10/7/13 on NFL Network & Nicktoons

    So in essence, he's a meat shield for Woodhead and Royal?

    ...

    I'm alright with that.

    Dang! Right after I thought we finally settled on a standardized definition for "meat shield."
