Lelie Avoids the Curse

We are all aware that since Terrell Owens wore the number 81 all receivers since have either been more interested in fishing or drinking than playing football. The latest receiver signed that was in danger of receiving the cursed 81 was Ashley Lelie. Well the roster page at .com shows that Lelie will be wearing number 82. So, we all owe thanks to Eric Johnson for signing with the Saints, because if he didn’t and Lelie was assigned 81 he would have been involved in some freak boating accident (ala Tim Crews) or taken a keen interest in needle point.

Now we just have to hope EJ didn’t taint 82 with his injuries.

  1. thanks NO. thanks eric.

  2. lol yea hopefully lol

  3. Is the number 87 retired? I believe so but I’m not to sure.

  4. Ok, so this just sets it up for one of our future drafted WR’s to take the #. Either way, someone will have to take the #. And start a new, as they say.

  5. recievers can take numbers in the teens now too…so hopefully our rookies go in that direction

  6. I saw this, thought it was funny. Now we will have another opposing CB to take advantage of….alla Sammy Davis next season…………The Rams have signed LB Chris Draft and CB Mike Rumph. (Rumph might want to stay away from RB Steven Jackson in practice, since Jackson once broke Rumph’s arm in a game.)

  7. It is believed agent Drew Rosenhaus is seeking a contract extension that will make San Francisco 49ers’ running back Frank Gore among the highest-paid players in the league – possibly even No.1.

    But the 49ers, who have more than $15 million in salary cap room, are not likely to award Gore the kind of lucrative deal his agent is seeking.

    The problem for Gore is that the 49ers have the leverage and are not likely to break the bank for a player with a history of injuries.

    i know its off the subject but news has been slow lately…Found it in yahoo sports RUMORS

  8. Also probably old news…………Note: Linebacker Colby Bockwoldt, who had been pursued by the Steelers, signed with the San Francisco 49ers yesterday. Bockwoldt played mostly on special teams for Tennessee last season after two years with the New Orleans Saints, starting 16 games in 2005.

  9. I still think Rumph to the Rams is funny shit.

  10. drew is only thinking about his own reputation and doesnt give a fuck about the team he is signing a player too.thats why drew and t.o. get along so good.ITS ONLY RUMORS HOPEFULLY.and sorry but i cant see us paying gore like brett farve or payton manning.that means we would have give frank gore 7 years over 100 million dollars and that is way too high for a running back,and i cant see the 49ers paying him that.

  11. and the other thing is we only have 15 million in salory cap space and have about 7,8,9 or ten rookies to sign yet.

  12. You took the words right out of my mouth 49erJeff when I saw that earlier I was cracking the fuck up, rumph to the rams and sammy davis to the bucs when the niners face them they’re going to tourch davis and rumph but I’m not sure if they play the bucs this coming season.

  13. Tapout. 87 is retired and has been for years. I came upon this information when they retired Joe’s number. I guess I am a bit young, or maybe I don’t appreciate the significance of “The Catch” enough, but why isn’t 42 retired. Bubba Paris, Guy Mac, Tom Rathman, Roger Craig, Randy Cross, Harris Barton.

  14. yeah so anyway when is the draft…

  15. R, Craig33 yes we do play the Bucs this year. We play them at home. Just not sure when. The draft is at the end of Arpil……39 days to go.

  16. At the end of yesterdays Off-season Conditioning Program The Man who broke the huddle for the Team was Nate Clements. So players end a practice with a saying such as “WIN” or “49ERS”, but not Nate Clements. At the end of practice Clements broke the Huddle with “PLAYOFFS.”

    “We are going to get this thing turned around, We are going to get this ball rolling”,said Clements.”We are going to win some game and dont be surprised” he add.

  17. I LOVE THE NINERS POINT BLANK!!!

    Looks like the Niners are ready for September.

  19. Funny mock, you’ll have to read the comments. http://thebrushback.com/mockdraft07.htm

  20. Ronnie Lott was on espnnews and he said picking up Nate Clemens and Micheal Lewis was two big pickups on defense and he talked about how much he liked the pickups, if that’s coming from Ronnie Lott then that’s saying a whole hell of a lot.

    GO NINERS FUCK THE DUMB SHIT!!!!!

  21. Fuck the dumb shit?

  22. NOW ITS TIME 2 DRAFT PATRICK WILLIS…

  23. i just heard on sportcenter about a new rule in overtime.now you can kick off from the 30 yard line instead of the 20 yard line in overtime.

  24. and they said alan branch is slipping becauce he was on his back alot in college on game tapes.

  25. hopefully vd can stay healthy this year. if anything ej plagued
    the te position with injuries.

  26. DOWN WITH THE NUMBER 81 T.O. INSULTED OUR FRANCHISE AND OUR FANS WHEN HE WENT TO PLAY FOR THE DALLAS COWHICKS. IF ANY MORE PLAYERS SWITCH TO THAT TEAM THEY SHOULD BE TARNISHED FOREVER AS A 49ER. IT’S SIMPLE DO YOU LIKE GOOD PEOPLE, A GOOD CITY, OR DO YOU LIKE DO YOU LIKE CORNDOGEATING COWTPPING TAKY METRO SEXUAL HILLBILLIES IN DALLAS. IT’S SIMPLE THE CHOICE IS SAN FRANCISCO! REMEMBER THAT PLAYERS IF YOU EVER THINK OF GOING THEIR SAN FRAN IS THE CLASSS ACT OF FOOTBALL1 THE STANDARD! THE TRUE AMERICAS TEAM1

  27. NO!!! The number shall remain nameless! The next receiver to get this number will break the curse!!!! You heard it here first, but no one can name the person who they think it will be. I am sure of it. Leave the number nameless.

  28. one of the new rookies will probley end up getting the number 81. wasnt john taylors nuber 82 before?

  29. number 82 before……thats what i ment

  30. NO! Don’t mention its name. It IS cursed.

  31. i was reading a rumor that the lions are willing to deal the 2nd pick? should we move up?

  32. this place is dead, when free agency started this place was none stop

  33. hahaha 49erJeff, I read the link and it was hilarious. thanks for sharing.

  34. if we got david harris in the second round that would be a terrific addition at linebacker…he is verryyyy good

  35. but i still want merriwether

    i’m soooooo pumped for this year….clements is an absolute baller

  36. Yeah, I think they should try and move up 2 get Calvin Johnson that dude a sav….YeEeEeEe!!!!

  37. I AGREE BAY AREA REBEL,

  38. I BURNT MY TO JERSEY, HE’S A TRAITOR TO THE ORGANIZATION AND FANS.

  39. THOSE JERSEYS ARE BAD LUCK WITH THAT NUMBER, THEY SHOULD BE IN THE TRASH. THE TEAM SHOULD GET RID OF THAT NUMBER ALL TOGETHER.

  40. BRING ON THE DRAFT AND THE NEXT JERRY RICE

  41. I say we retire the #81…..Not to one player for remembrance of a great career, but to the remembrance of multiple players who single handedly try to take down our franchise through selfish-ness and attitude, not performing and injuries and of course off-field misdemeanors in there orange Lamborginis….

  42. WE NEED JARRETT OR CALVIN JOHNSON!

  43. THAT WILL ELEVATE US TO THE SUPERBOWL

  44. IF we draft Landry, Branch, or Carriker then we SHOULD take Harris over Merriweather. I have decided that he IS extremely talented, but will cause a lot of problems…he is from the U. Unless Rice is available….then MAYBE we take him. Merriweather would be a GREAT pick up and I would like nothing more than for him to shut me up and prove me wrong that he CAN perform and STILL not be a pacman like problem. If he could get his act together then he WOULD BE HUGE FOR OUR TEAM. Also, JUST SAY NO TO USC receivers…unless they are in the second or third round. There is NO WAY we take Jarrett with our first pick. David Harris is going to be a force in the league….remember I said so.

  45. check out 49ersmaniacs.santaclara.net/rumors/trades. HUGE rumor just floated that san fran is tradin kwame harris and a second round pick for takeo spikes either tonight or tommorow

  46. I LIKE THAT HES WEARING NUMBER 82 I THINK IT A FRESH START FOR HIM AND HILL HAVE OVER A 1000 YARDS THIS SEASON AND 13TD SO LETS GO GET THE NFC WEST AND PLAYOFFS HERE WE COME HELL YA GO NINERS

  47. MAN..NOW DRAFT PATIRCK WILLIS…….GOSH DAMN…A FUCKIN 4.37 ON THA 40 YARD DASH…ITS A MUST..FUCK CJ….WE TALK BOUT HIM 2 MUCH..BUT U KNO DAMN WELL IT AINT GON HAPPEN…DONT GET ME WRONG HE A GOOD PLAYER..BUT IT AINT GON HAPPEN..OUR POSSIBILITY 4 A TOPFLIGHT PLAYER..IS PATRICK WILLIS..AND HW WEARS THA NUMBER 49..SHIT ITS A SIGN…IM FUCKIN SERIOUS…HE IS THA MISSIN PEICE 2 OUR 49ER RISE..
