Anyone that skips this read is really missing out on a long and terrific story. We all mostly heard about the night of drinking that dropped his draft stock, but this gives a much more detailed picture of Boone.

That's great. I no longer drink either. It's been a little over a year for me and I know how tempting it gets sometimes. I hope he keeps it up. I hope he dominates the line against opposing teams too.

Even though singletary was not a good head coach. He definitely started a culture in San Fran and helped turn a few lives around. Most notably was Vernon and now also Boone. I like that sing got in his face as soon as he stepped foot in the facility and told him to get his sh*t straight or he's gone. I hope nothing but the best for Boone. He's going to turn that 69 rating around in no time!

I'm a big fan of Boone. I have no doubt that he will be a very good player in the NFL.

Sunday's game promises to be a war of nasty attitudes, especially when it comes to the right side of the 49ers OL and the left side of the Detroit DL. Anthony Davis and Avril jawed at each other throughout last year's meeting, then continued feuding on Twitter hours after the game had ended. Suh, meanwhile, was overwhelmingly voted the league's dirtiest player last year in player poll conducted by The Sporting News. Boone this year has joined Anthony Davis in adding an element of feistiness to the OL. His attitude figured into the good grades he got from coaches after his first ever regular season start. "We were all thrilled to see the instinctive things he did," Greg Roman said. "He played physical, he played to his personality, which is aggressive, passionate, old-school nasty. And he had a lot of fun out there. Boone loves playing football. He's a beauty." Boone's self-assessment wasn't as effusive. He said his leverage began to lapse as the game went on, and he recalled being showed backward on a bull rush by Ryan Pickett. But he also conceded it was a good first step.

I remember we had this really tall guard, dont remember which year, he played on the Cowboys and won some chips with them, but he was like 6-7/6-8 Kevin Gogan.. hopefully Boone can be similar for us at RG =p

if I remember right, Gogan was nasty too lol
