Stevie Johnson is going home

Stevie Johnson is having the best Friday ever today because reports are surfacing that he will be going home to San Francisco to play for the 49ers next season. ESPN NFL guru Adam Schefter reports Buffalo is shipping Fly Guy to San Fran for a fourth-round pick in 2015.

Stevie is very proud to be from the Bay and I can’t imagine how excited he is to play for his hometown team. That, and he gets to leave Buffalo for a Super Bowl contender.

And of course I’m going to post the Stevie Got Loose video below:

    Why in the hell would you trade him for a fourth round pick?

      One of the most lopsided trades of the decade. Then again this is the same organization that signed a backup quarterback with nearly a 1-1 touchdown to interception ratio to a $59 million quarterback in Ryan Fitzpatrick. You honestly can’t explain away this kind of dumb. For more examples see Cleveland Browns and Johnny Manziel. If you or I made similar decisions in ANY other setting we would be out of work.

      I believe Randy Moss was also traded for a 4th round pick to the Pats.

      I don’t think the Manziel deal was that dumb. They essentially got him for Trent Richardson, and a third round pick. They’ve already seen a jump in season ticket sales, and jerseys will sell like crazy. At some point they’ll breakeven, and if he doesn’t pan out it’s not a loss. They didn’t lose a first round pick or anything this year, or in future years to get him.

      They have a stud WR, brought in a decent back, and bringing in Manziel fired up a fan base that needed it. If he pans out, it was a great move. If not, it wasn’t too much risk.

      I am not a Browns fan either.

    So happy for Stevie to finally get on a team with a chance! Buffalo that was the dumbest move I’ve ever seen. They’re gonna love his run blocking in SF as much as his receiving.

    Still bothers me that UK didn’t go for two to go up 7 🙂

    this is why i won’t follow pro sports. hated players coming to your favorite team, and favorite players going to your most hated team. no thanks.

    Boldin, Johnson, and that sorry receiver Crabtree? That’s a great trio of receivers. As a Niners fan, I am super excited to Stevie get loose in San Fran this year.

    This question is about the Louisville in the Video, why the heck didn’t we go for 2? That way we would have went up by 7 instead 6. Just realized that. Anyways got CATS! I’m happy for Stevie!

    I can’t believe so many people think that the Cats should’ve gone for 2 after Johnson’s touchdown. Here’s why Brooks was right to kick:

    1) After the TD, the Cats led by 5 points, so if they go for two and fail (a 50% likelihood, lets say), a Louisville TD (one play) beats them.

    2) Instead, Brooks decides to kick (with the 99% likelihood of success) in order to go up by 6. Then a Louisville score merely ties them.

    Basically, Brooks opted to require U of L to complete two successful plays to win instead of one.

    Brooks didn’t go for two for the same reason he decided it was best to settle for a subpar inconsistent Lones Seiber attempt at beating a Tennessee team we hadn’t beat in 20 plus years. Brooks was old school and played to not lose his whole tenure here. Only problem I ever had with him as a coach. Old school guys are like that though. That mentality carried over to Joker. Problem was, Joker’s recruits didn’t pan out.
