Sorry to be a pain, but for the 50% of people saying Sheets what is the scenario in which he's actually on the gameday roster? Unless Coffee totally falls on his face Sheets' best case scenario with us is that he makes our practice squad.
I'm more intrigued by Boone because on top of having potential there's also a chance of a roster spot for him.
Sheets has experience as a KR too, if he can win that job, then he would probably get 3-5 carries a game to throw defenses off balance with his speed. Speculation of course.
you didnt say one of those jobs
Why would I, everyone knows there's USUALLY two KR when they take the field. Now I feel your just nit picking at me....relax.
i'm not at all. any team can throw two kick returners out on the field but everyone knows that there is one guy who is the primary return man. and the primary return man is going to go get the ball 9 times out of 10, and bring it back. who were our secondary kick return guys last year? walker and robinson? they had 19 returns compared to rossum's 47. rossum also missed 3 games, so i'm sure some of those 19 came from there.
robinson is our best special teams player, so his spot on the gameday roster is safe, and walker is either our second or third TE, so his gameday roster spot looks to be safe as well. i'm sorry but i just dont see this guy logging much playing time as a 4th RB with debateable kick return ability
Dont forget that Robinson would also be our back up FB if Norris goes down. It's safe to say that Gore, Coffee, Robinson, and Norris will be the suited every week and Sheets will take Clayton's role until he can take more of Robinson's roles.
If Sheets beats Clayton out of a job, there is no reason to think he won't be on the active roster. Last year we kept 4 backs on the active roster: Gore, Foster, Robinson, and Keasey. We only kept four because Martz wanted six WRs. Now, our offense is more run oriented. They will keep 5 backs on the active roster most weeks, especially if Sheets proves he can play spaecial teams. He won't be returning kicks, but he needs to learn how to play coverage.
This pretty much says it.
no it doesnt. i'm talking about the gameday roster, where they can only carry 45 players. even if he makes the 53 man active roster, he'll most likely be on of the 8 (or 7 most likely since i see them keeping a 3rd QB on gameday) inactives
That's what he just said ACTIVE ROSTER. But sure he would probably be inactive for a few games, could be a bad week of practice, we're light at one position and need to activate someone form the practice squad. I wouldn't put anything past it.
All this because I see potential in a player.
i know he said active roster, i was referring to the gameday roster. thats about the third time now you have just completely missed what i was talking about...
i know you see potential in this guy, and thats great, but i dont see the same potential. just because he returned a few kicks in college, and was rather mediocre at it, doesnt give me any reason to believe he'll win a return job on this team. i think he'll compete for a spot on the practice squad, but its going to be an uphill battle for him to see any kind of playing time at all.
sorry i dont agree with you.
Tell me whats the difference between Active Roster and Gameday Roster?? Since I missed what you were saying??
And so Michael Robinson and Delanie Walker aren't mediocre at returning kicks....since when did they go to the Pro Bowl for that???
alright. active roster is 53 guys. i'm sure you know that. this is what the roster gets cut down to after that last preseason game, then they can carry an 8 man practice squad.
however on gameday, teams can only dress 45 of the 53 players. those 45 make up the gameday roster. even though we had 6 WR's on the active roster last year, as stated above, not all of those 6 would dress for the game.
i dont see the 49ers using 5 spots of that 45 man roster on RB's. Robinson and Walker have added value at other positions, so its easy to stick them back there with rossum on kick returns. sheets is going to have to bust his ass to make that 45 man roster is what i'm saying.
robinson and walker are mediocre, for sure. rossum is the kick returner, and he is certainly not mediocre. you said that sheets has KR experience...but he only returned 38 kicks in his career, and averaged 20 yards on them. that doesnt exactly lead me to believe that he's capable of winning a KR job.
Active roster means 45 man, that's why on gameday they call it inactive if your not playing....what aren't you getting, oh and now we're arguing about something totally different LOL. 53 man roster is just the team roster, how can you call it the active roster, when 53 players cannot be active??
Here's something else your not getting that you yourself answered. I said Sheets has experience in kick returns.....YOU.....say he only returned 38 kicks in his career.....now, plain and simple does he or doesn't he have experience in kick returns?? And AGAIN, I said IF he can we the kick return job, not that he will.
