If I say that "Jackson" sucks, will my son cry?

It's official, the Niners acquired Seattle WR Darrell Jackson for a fourth round pick (Joe Schmoe of Buttfucking Egypt University).

While I'm excited as all get-out over the trade (seriously, I couldn't wrap my mind around the concept of "go-to guy" and "Ashlie Lelie."), I can't help but wonder why Seattle, a division rival, would trade a top receiver to an up-and-coming division opponent that needed... a top receiver? Either Seattle is remarkably dumb, or they have absolutely no faith that Alex Smith will develop into anything more than Jim Druckenmiller. I'm betting on remarkably dumb.

Regardless, the trade caps what has to be referred to as a very successful draft weekend for the Niners. They picked up the top linebacker in the draft (Patrick Willis), an offensive tackle to replace the utterly inept Kwame Harris, a first-round pick in 2008 (although they traded their own 2008 first rounder), Jackson, and some quality backups in rounds 3 through 6.

This off-season as a whole is exciting the piss out of me. It would appear that the Niners have now picked up a total of 7 new starters, mostly on defense:

Nate Clements CB
Michael Lewis S
Tully Banta-Cain LB
Patrick Willis LB
Aubrayo Franklin DT
Darrell Jackson WR
Joe Staley RT (possibly)

Coach and Organizational Czar, Mike Nolan, is giving Niner fans something to be excited about. Anything short of the playoffs in 2007 will be a disappointment.

If the Niners finish 2-14, I will start calling Mike Nolan, "Isiah Thomas."

For the first time in many years, I might actually be nervous about playing the Niners.
