The Owen Marecic Convertible MG of Specialness

Wasted roster spot....based on what? HOLY s**t, after 2 incredibly successful seasons, people still have an OCD need to nit-pick everything the coaching staff does. If Harbaugh thinks Marecic can be a valuable addition, that's good enough for me. Harbaugh could have brought a lot of former Stanford players on board, the fact that he went after this guy, and made a point of stating that the 49ers had really wanted him after he was drafted by the Browns is good enough for me. If Harbaugh thinks Marecic has a role on this team, I'm down with it.

I tend to agree with you, but we are literally stacked at the RB/FB position for at least the next 5 years barring a rash of injury, before Marecic. This late into the process when is the earliest he can contribute on game day? I trust Harbaugh and Baalke in pretty much everything, but I can still not be a fan of signing a guy at a position where there is probably the least amount of need, both present and future imo, than any other position on the roster.
Well, we were looking for a new drinking game at the bar to replace "every time they show Alex Smith". How about "every time the camera shows Marecic standing behind Harbaugh" everyone has to drink?

He's not being brought in to be a running back. He barely ran the ball in Stanford as it was. His value is in his versatility, he played linebacker, he played fullback, he was a very good special teams player in college, he's not a guy who's just going to sit at the back of the RB depth chart. If it makes you feel better, just consider him a fulllinerunningbacker. :P

Hes not signed yet, and who the heck is this person reporting it too?
I trust Harbaugh but I dont see the need to sign Marecic. He isnt going to play defense and he isnt going to beat out Miller. He must be a ST guru. Thats all I can figure out.

Your right, I don't know, I'm no coach or not on the staff obviously, I'm just looking at the numbers at RB/FB as a fan and they are stacked at the position.

Frank Gore
Kendall Hunter
Anthony Dixon
Bruce Miller
LaMichael James
Marcus Lattimore
Owen Marcic

That's just as much as the receivers or same. Just my opinion but I would have rather seen Marcus Cooper or Darryl Morris earn the spot they deserve.

If Marecic comes in and becomes a special teams stud and provides depth all across the board, I doubt anyone will be complaining in the sllightest.

Oh don't get me wrong, I wanted the 9ers to draft Marecic in the 3rd, way before he was taken, but man 9ers got a lot of guys that can play ST now, at least tell Bubba get the steppin.
