The Owen Marecic Convertible MG of Specialness

I'm confident we will bring in a NT in the near future. Marecic can be cut at anytime to free up a roster spot. Perhaps they want to give Jerod-Eddie a shot to prove he can be the backup NT before we sign anybody. Taller than your average NT, but its all good if he can get the job done.

they have to make a move for a defensive tackle,, they just can not set there with dorsey on game day. i have been told by posters to wait till things all shake out before i get nuts and i will try to adhere to that theory,, but this is just,,, just,,,,
Only 5 Dlinemen? Why?

yeah I agree wait till the end of the week....we need DT help, and my mind is just going all over the place trying to figure this out.... so maybe we are trying to trade Dixon or Miller to a team that needs a starting/backup RB or starting FB....for their DT.

again, I don't know why else we would sign a fullback.

I just went back and looked at all four of Owen Marecic's drops from 2012, and all four were EASILY catchable. #49ers
dont get this move...

I think I remember Jerod-Eddie looking OK in the pre-season late in games against 2nd/3rd stringers....

Did he ever get a chance to play against first string talent? If so, did he hold up very well?

RT @MrSpazztic is it likely we see him on the field anytime soon? > RE: Owen Marecic ... On special teams, yes. On offense? Probably not

Any chance this is primarily just a move to further improve ST?

maybe they are trying to talk seymour into signing a cheap deal? yes you are right, i will try hard not to get to nuts about this,,, unfortunately I lack the mental toughness to follow through

i think our special teams is just fine,, unless they are setting the stage for a theory floated by afrikan and that is to trade dixon for a d tackle. could be,, but again they just can not set here on game day with only dorsey. they just can not

New #49ers Owen Marecic says he'll back up FB Bruce Miller and take part on special teams; "I'll do everything I can to try to contribute"

I don't get this signing, we don't need another slow fullback. We need a freaking NT, we only have Dorsey as a NT on the roster, wtf this team is turning into the Cleveland Browns real quick with all their former players signing with us.

i know we can afford seymour but i am stunned we did not at least sign a cheap free agent, we just need a body behind dorsey. maybe it is to come yet this week? i am still at setting six but getting close to 7

Yeah man, Im with you on the over-reaction scale, Im probably at a 6.5 rite now but soon Imma explode if they don't do anything about it. I know its just the beginning of the week, but if you need to bring in somebody why not do it asap so he can have a feel for the scheme and learn now instead of trying to learn it in a day or two.
LOL Now we get to see Marecic and Miller run go routes all game! Seriously IMO another fullback is the pretty low on the "team needs" list.

This is dumb. Why do we want him?
