In case this dazzling array of 49ers roster moves confuses you, allow us to help.
Everything you thought about this team’s continuity as it enters the post-Khaki era is, well, dead. Even after you eliminate the notion that Colin Kaepernick is on the trading block (which would be the final bit of madness by a football organization that suddenly decides to hate football), all you’re doing now is waiting for Michael Crabtree to leave and Justin Smith to retire and the good old days will mostly be old.
But maybe this year they’ll get the grass to be a little less, well, dead-ish. Although if they did move Kaepernick, it wouldn’t matter what happened to the grass because nobody would be there to see it.

Meanwhile, the Raiders still can’t give money away, thereby still making their fans slightly more forlorn than 49ers fans are enraged. An that’s the beauty of Football 365 -– there’s never a time when you can’t take the time to hate your team.

As for the rest of the universe, Draymond Green is not only someone you don’t mess with on court, you’d better be ready to talk some serious mess if you want to debate him. In fairness, of course, Dahntay Jones of the Clippers is a rather low-hanging target, and Green still says he wouldn’t smart off to Tim Duncan, an honorable choice all the way around there.

Speaking of which, the hideous Warrior playoff trifecta is starting to take shape. Oklahoma City remains eighth, San Antonio is a loss by the Clippers Monday night from moving into fifth, and Memphis is still second, although its margin over Houston remains thin.
We mention this only because Warrior fans still cast about for some reason to worry about their team on March 8. So in that vein, we are just here to help.

In other news, the Sharks . . . oh, screw it, there is no other news around here. A rogue Kaepernick trade rumor on top of the Gore news is the drool of the day, with all due respect to Stanford’s women putting one more knot on Cal’s head in a big spot. And frankly, while we never mind a bit of misplaced idiocy, I’m having a very difficult time getting the idea that some people would prefer Nick Foles or Jay Cutler in San Francisco on the basis that, well, they’re just tired of Kaepernick.
On that basis alone, Raider fans have something to smile about while they keep vigil outside the team’s intergalactic headquarters waiting for those moving vans from Starving Students to pull up to the back of the building.
And have a nice, hellish day because, well, because you think Trent Baalke is trying out his Joe Thomas shoes, and you can’t wait to hold your breath until he turns purple . . . for all the good that’ll do you.
