Ronnie Lott... Still Protecting The Scarlet & Gold's Pride

Lott goes after Jonas Jennings
Matt Barrows, Sac Bee

Who said Ronnie Lott doesn't deliver big hits any more? This morning on KNBR, Lott delivered a jolt to injured left tackle Jonas Jennings, but it wasn't clear what prompted the slam."I know the Jonas Jennings situation," Lott told co-host Brian Murphy. "That guy right there ... If I was the coach and he said some of the things that I heard he said, I would have cut him. We can't have a guy not thinking that his teammates support him. We can't have that in the locker room."Later, Lott said the 49ers should cut Jennings, who was the team's big free-agent pick up in 2005."Sometimes you have to make a tough call. Sometimes you have to make a cut that costs you money."But when asked if Jennings had somehow undermined the team or the coach, Lott said he didn't know the specifics. "I just know what I've seen and what I've watched and what happened at that position."

To pick up on what Matt Barrows wrote about Lott's comments... Why is it that this franchise's greatest players like Lott or Steve Young are still the ones safeguarding the pride and displaying the most leadership for this franchise, some 2 decades after they were leaders on the field. This franchise did a nosedive the day Eddie DeBartolo lost control of the team after the Louisiana Gambling scandle. For that matter, on the subject of Eddie D...if he is now considered a nominee for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, why can't he get his team back? Certainly Tagliabue's ban can be lifted and Eddie could get the team back from his sister and her flaky husband - (John York, right, showing us all which finger he picks his nose with at games). While DeBartolo was one of the great owners in the history of sports, I think his sister and brother-in-law sometimes think football is something played by David Beckham.

Watching where this team was and where it is now, and looking at the match-up this weekend between Indy and the Pats, one can't help think back to the days of the 49ers v Dallas and wonder what the heck is going on? It feels like watching your straight A student child become a crack addict. I don't know about all of you Niner faithful out there, but I'm sure getting tired of not even making it to Thanksgiving before it's time to start looking ahead to the draft. What's worse, their first round pick in '08 is lining up in the person of Joe Staley, since they gave away next year's pick to the Pats. Ironically, the same pick that the Jets will be enjoying since they won it in the "video-gate" scandle. With that off the table, even that ray of hope is gone. Nothing like playing for your second round pick position! I've about had enough of this. Bill Walsh, may he rest in peace, must be rolling over in his grave.
