10.19: Lunch with Matt and Mindi
Matt and Mindi discuss the possibility of the 49ers returning to Europe in 2012.
Me knocking you already talk about fourteen years -- seven of course there are high -- me. Improvement league trip what are you doing to improve this and He enters this week what are teams doing -- overcast. Yeah. This -- an athlete after that for that matter is that working out to -- amateurs that. Physically after that first trip trip that. Very -- but still some work things and but for some of the players and coaches are way track Bosnia and day out track pads that your team's community events -- keep knocking the huge holiday food drive. The second harvest food banks and that's it make it thing for the fans again I think at this isn't to make them at some point blank you know this team is 51. But it's doing so because they're playing some great performances -- teams here -- player's career when your contracts and their contracts mean I was Rodgers time. Lot purposes at this year's uncle since -- just like here Alex Smith when teams start thinking about winning and which players they want to bring back next. Well I think they've already start thinking of that I think -- have to continue to think about that and try to get something done because. The longer they go without signing -- -- too long term deal. The closer He gets to -- hitting the open market and is incentive for signing a long term contract. Dissipate so. I think. I think Ahmad Brooks and Carlos Rogers are two guys up -- defense that He would like to sign up for long term deals. 34 years. And then everybody else yeah I think those those are the two guys that those are also two guys. -- theoretically if they hit the open market we'll get there -- nice contracts. And I didn't have a chance to speak to Jed York today how can you penthouse to that same thing -- -- -- are not track. -- are you working on which players they want to bring back He expects some of those decisions teammate in the forty had a great season similar to how good. The team extended frank -- contract before it was at this here but I -- also I'm seeing it. It's easier for him as well. Yeah as the shot Eggleston. -- surprise heating kid any play. I mean He says it did the New England Patriots offered him a contract that clearly it wasn't a very good contract probably a minimum salary cut a deal you know he's kind of in. He's banged up a little bit there miss the first couple games. I've always -- a Korean player -- -- -- he's using good. Safety. Big guy he's hitters he's not afraid to sacrifice his body did make that. Pretty bone headed eight feet at the alliance it kicked up on my doctor afterward Heatley I don't know. But. He's sort of the enforcers guy back there. So yeah I think he's he's definitely into the mix of foreigners offered -- nice contract He turned down and then they pulled Lipton now he's back peddling your contract so. Joshua -- again he's another got 48 -- They said they want him back but of course at what would deal you know he's not gonna get the kind of contract that He would have wanted. He was on his way to get them pretty country I think. But then you know lately plays in four games in his season's over. -- a fight basically -- games this season's over so. You know foreigners might wanna see how He bounces back from that injury before determining what kind of contract again. -- of course all let's talk about. It or the week. And here. I don't think there's any reason to sign Alex so long term contract while the season's going and the reason is this. If at the end of the year in the 49ers feel like they want Alex Smith back and right now you would think yeah they -- -- they would want him back. There is no way. Alex Smith is gonna say okay 49ers this is what you're offering I'm gonna go out here look for a better deal but there are just as there is no way Alex Smith is gonna say let's see here I've been in the NFL offers this my seventh -- finally. Achieve success under Jim Harbaugh line great Romany G Chris is like. Quarterbacks coach in and the fans now love me and I have my home here have a new baby in my why were settled. Yeah I'm -- -- start somewhere and you know there's no way he's leaving the 49ers. If the -- -- on him back so I think the 49ers hold the cards. Without. Question here Kerry's eyes. This week it Bears box below the memories of that line was. Answer. This guy is hall where the team and the bar. On line a lot. -- one night and I hear they're for one night. -- -- expand our -- you bet. You wait every night. But back. That doctor York had. Me for now -- we'll extend their turns. Out He. That they were out. On. My case or up to five years in a row here. At work that day. We'll look for. Your. Great keep our there. Keep it that. One. -- I don't see why not they have such a good time -- is a good experience for them going to Youngstown Ohio for a week. They don't get away for training camp training camps at the forty practice facility in Santa Clara. I think the 49ers. In candlestick the worst stadium and all football they -- don't mind giving up. A home game and Candlestick Park especially when you know were you thinker you believe -- gonna have a steam built in San Clara the result. I think the 49ers. I think we're gonna go back to London and I think we're going to be going back to Landon multiple times over the next five years. It was one of the things the at Fawcett who is. It's it might not just one game. It might not just be two games that the NFL yearly holes in London it's going to be as meaning games as we see fit. Depending on what the crowd reaction is that -- there. And one thing that we know. Having been over and in the UK for a week was that there are a lot of 49ers fans in Europe. When we went to Piccadilly Circus that one day at a at a -- and forty niner fans came in and they were. From all over the globe. Yeah when our -- on the I wanted to be let 1000. It's typically have the best. An outline and a lot of them. Yeah and and might not. And legitimate NFL. You guys to. Who knows there's stuff you know at 101. Readers here -- right. -- -- So that -- for -- and they've they've had that from the eighties when when games for certain being telecast over. Over there so yeah I think the foreigners go -- This year. After. -- -- -- -- Learn something every. I even learned that if you improve on percent. Do you get in an architect Jim Harbaugh always says. We we want to get better every day one get that He said it more than once it's everybody organizations as we get better one person everyday yeah. Get better 1% every day after thirty days or 30% better I'm thinking you know I'm no mathematician here and India's. But I'm pretty positive that mathematically that doesn't compute it. Better what percent everyday after ten days here around point 1% better because. 1% -- one and that 1% one why is it a case so it's not. So Jim Harbaugh has been right about a lot of things. Just becoming coach of the system 49ers how left mathematics He is not right about. Talk about an -- -- It's like its improvement week I didn't even my math skills and our. I think -- -- and see if there.
