What I’m trying to tell you is that all of those things actually helped me make the decision to select Aaron Lynch to be the 49ers’ breakout player this year.
But let’s back up for a second so we can agree that Lynch is talented as hell and richly blessed when it comes to his rare combination of stature and athleticism. The dude is 6’6 and, currently at least, back down to his normal playing weight of around 270 pounds. For a man that size he moves like a damn cheetah. He’s quick off the ball and sudden with his lateral quickness. He is also a natural pass rusher. He flips his hips and slides off of blocks so effortlessly that sometimes it looks like he isn’t even going hard, then blam!, he’s knocking your quarterback on his ass.

“It’s very difficult, not only because we have Cheap Throwback NBA Jerseys family and friends back there,” Watt said. “Some guys have young kids. Some guys have wives and families. But that’s our city. It’s Cheap Spirit Jerseys very tough to watch your city get hit by such a bad storm and not be there to help.”
Texans owner Bob McNair has committed $1 million to the United Way of Greater Houston Flood Relief Fund. The NFL Foundation and the Patriots will each match McNair’s pledge.
