Rich Eisen may regret this preposterous 49ers draft bet he made with a listener

Now this is a bet Rich Eisen may regret if things don’t break his way. On Thursday, Eisen — on his sports radio show “The Rich Eisen Show” on Peacock — made quite the outlandish bet with a listener should the San Francisco 49ers draft contrary to his belief.

The 49ers own the third overall pick (from Miami, via Houston) in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft, a position of great strength for a San Francisco team looking to shore up a few weaknesses. The listener on Eisen’s show proposed the idea that the 49ers might not take a quarterback at No. 3 overall and instead take a gamble on someone like tight end Kyle Pitts out of the University of Florida.

It was then when Eisen struck a preposterous, and quite gross, bet with the listener: If the 49ers take anyone but a quarterback at the No. 3 overall spot, he’d eat the listener’s dirty sweatshirt live on air.

Now that is some confidence in one’s opinion right there. Eisen reasons that San Francisco is likely to be on the look out for some support at quarterback beside Jimmy Garoppolo, who did not have a good 2020 season and was injured off and on throughout the year.

“It is not Kyle Pitts coming. It is not Jamar Chase coming,” Eisen said. “It is somebody who throws a football — for a living — not named Trevor Lawrence and presumedly Zach Wilson. That’s who’s coming.”

Eisen’s logic seems sound, but if somehow he’s wrong and the 49ers go off the draft board at No. 3, he’s in for a world of pain thanks to this bet.
