    NINERS COULD BE SECOND TEAM TO SIGN A FIRST-ROUNDER

    There's talk in league circles that the San Francisco 49ers are closing in on a deal with offensive tackle Joe Staley, the 28th overall pick in the 2007 draft.

    Only one first-round selection has signed a contract (tight end Greg Olsen of the Bears, at No. 31), even though training camps begin to open next week.

    But we expect the pace to pick up quickly, as it does every year. Thus, we'll be tracking the signings in round one and comparing the deals to the contracts signed at the same spot in 2006.

    WRONG! Wrong sir! That is one thing I know! I indeed know the difference between then which represent time and than which would be the correct usage in this title.

    However, I probably cant speel the two!:icon_tease:

    Niners agree with first-round tackle Staley

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    By Len Pasquarelli
    ESPN.com

    Offensive tackle Joe Staley, the latter of San Francisco's two choices in the first round of the April draft, reached agreement in principle on a five-year contract with the 49ers on Monday.

    Financial details of the contract, negotiated by Priority Sports, were not yet available. The deal will be officially signed on Tuesday after some details in contract language are addressed.

    The 28th player chosen overall, Staley is only the second pick in the first round to come to terms on a contract, joining Chicago Bears tight end Greg Olsen, the 31st selection.

    Staley was the third offensive tackle selected in the first round, after Joe Thomas (Cleveland) and Levi Brown (Arizona), but many scouts feel he has the most upside of the group of pass protectors. Although he worked some at right tackle in the spring, Staley is viewed as San Francisco's long-term solution at the often problematic left tackle spot.

    The 49ers traded up with New England for a second pick in the first round because they coveted Staley so much. San Francisco chose University of Mississippi middle linebacker Patrick Willis with its own pick in the round, in the No. 11 slot.

    A tight end when he enrolled at Central Michigan, Staley played in 11 games as a true freshman and posted 11 receptions for 130 yards. He moved to right tackle as a sophomore in 2004, then to left tackle in 2005, and played his final two seasons there. Over the course of his college career, Staley bulked up by 80 pounds.

    Staley is a terrific natural athlete who moves well for a player his size (6 feet 5, 306 pounds), and who has quick feet and solid techniques. He didn't work out at the combine, but at his pro day audition for scouts was timed in 4.79 seconds in the 40-yard dash and had a 32-inch vertical jump.

    In 25 games at left tackle, Staley allowed just five sacks according to the Central Michigan coaches and had 178 "knockdown" blocks and 34 blocks that resulted in touchdowns.

    The 49ers signed former Buffalo starter Jonas Jennings as an unrestricted free agent in the spring of 2005, hoping he would solidify the left tackle position for many years. But the six-year veteran has been plagued by injuries and inconsistency in his two seasons with the club.

    Now you are calling me retarded. Has your smack really gotten this bad? The humor is apparent to everyone that you would have the audacity to call anyone out on matters of the written word. :icon_shrug:

    I do have such audacity. Furthermore I am correct. Just because you and Ant dont know the meaning and usage of an adverb.

    Let me educate you backwards fools:

    then /ðɛn/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[then] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation,
    –adverb
    1. at that time: Prices were lower then.
    2. immediately or soon afterward: The rain stopped and then started again.
    3. next in order of time: We ate, then we started home.
    4. at the same time: At first the water seemed blue, then gray.
    5. next in order of place: Standing beside Charlie is my uncle, then my cousin, then my brother.
    6. in addition; besides; also: I love my job, and then it pays so well.
    7. in that case; as a consequence; in those circumstances: If you're sick, then you should stay in bed.
    8. since that is so; as it appears; therefore: You have, then, found the mistake? You are leaving tonight then.
    –adjective 9. being; being such; existing or being at the time indicated: the then prime minister.
    –noun 10. that time: We have not been back since then. Till then, farewell.
    —Idioms11. but then, but on the other hand: I found their conversation very dull, but then I have different tastes.
    12. then and there, at that precise time and place; at once; on the spot: I started to pack my things right then and there. Also, there and then.

    Then represent time. Not a comparison between two things.

    Than, a conjunction is used with comparisons or conjunctions, ohh say like "Other THAN Scott Chandler"

    than /ðæn, ðɛn; unstressed ðən, ən/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[than, then; unstressed thuhn, uhn] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
    –conjunction
    1. (used, as after comparative adjectives and adverbs, to introduce the second member of an unequal comparison): She's taller than I am.
    2. (used after some adverbs and adjectives expressing choice or diversity, such as other, otherwise, else, anywhere, or different, to introduce an alternative or denote a difference in kind, place, style, identity, etc.): I had no choice other than that. You won't find such freedom anywhere else than in this country.
    3. (used to introduce the rejected choice in expressions of preference): I'd rather walk than drive there.
    4. except; other than: We had no choice than to return home.
    5. when: We had barely arrived than we had to leave again.
    –preposition 6. in relation to; by comparison with (usually fol. by a pronoun in the objective case): He is a person than whom I can imagine no one more courteous.


    But I guess Mods and Lawyers dont have ta know proper engrich.

    Furthermore what does it say to you that someone whom as you say "has he audacity to call anyone out on matters of the written word." can identify the proper use of Then and Than when so many of you prim and proper posters who has mastered the proper written form of the king's tongue cannot? Yeah, guess yer the pot.
