Newly signed 49ers FB Owen Marecic should thank NT Tony Jerod-Eddie for his job.

well lets just hope RayMac gets healthy
I wonder if the Marecic signing is any indictment on Bruce Miller's job as a blocker on running plays? Someone isn't getting the job done somewhere because Gore doesn't have any room to run.

Frank is not the punishing runner he once was, and may have lost a step of speed, but he hasn't regressed that much. Something isn't right in Dodge.

Does the Marecic signing indicate this? Or am I reading the tea leaves incorrectly?

Harb just wanted to get one of his former fave players some money. he probably has financial problems or something.

there interest in marecic came before the start of the season and seems generated by harbaugh's affection for him more than anything else

Agreed, Harbaugh needs a hug right about now and Owen Wilson is the perfect remedy.

On a serious note though, Miller is stellar in his blocking schemes and when he gets a catchable ball from CK, he makes it...I don't fault him too much on a deep crossing pattern where he had to dive with a defender on his back.

I have little doubt Owen will be stellar on the inactive list most of the year.

Ahmad Brooks
all the players you guys are listing had potential...they were drafted high or showed rare ability.

and why is Marshall Faulk's name mentioned? dude was great in Indy.

we are talking about a slow/short for his position FB/LB. I would love for him to surprise me in some way, but I just don't see it when I see his highlights.

Tom Brady? Drafted 6 round, wins Super Bowls.

I don't know if Ahmad Brooks was necessarily used wrong, but he definitely was not an All Pro linebacker in Cincinatti. He was cut at the end of preseason 2008 and we signed him a day later. Marshawn Lynch was nowhere near the back he is now that he was in Buffalo. Change of environment can do wonders in certain occasions.

OK, your comment made me think differently .. because both of those players grew into good players rather than get coached into good players. I guess we could take our time with him and let our coaches do their thing but he was thrown into the starting spot in clevland, I just don't see him contributing right now. We need to concentrate on the players we had already like Quinton Patton, Baldwin, Vance, Reid, and Kendall Hunter
both of those players were Athletic freaks though...they had potential... and Marshawn was already f'n Beast in Buffalo anyway. Seattle lucked out with that move.

I don't know what is unique about Marecic...but hey I'd rather the club be weird about their actions regarding a backup FB...rather than a Backup QB.

Lynch was good in Buffalo, but I wouldn't have called him a beast. He took it two levels higher in Seattle. In terms of Owen, who knows. We aren't always going to see what a player brings. This is the same regime that drafted a DE and turned him into a pretty decent FB. They drafted a FS that ended up being our best corner. They took a QB that the majority thought was a bust and he became a guy that could potentially lead a team to the Super Bowl. If somehow Marecic becomes Tom Rathman 2.0, it really wouldn't surprise me at all. Or maybe he's here for special teams help. Who knows. Let's just wait and see.

We drafted JJ Stokes, a highly touted receiver who was supposed to be the next big thing. But we ended up drafting another receiver the following year out of a small school that ended up being a Hall of Fame player (T.O.). Who would've saw that coming from the highlights?

I'm not old enough to know the hype he got coming out, but I'm sure Charles Haley couldn't have had that big of a name coming out of a Division II school.

Just a small point... but Lynch coined "beast mode" while in Buffalo, and he was a beast, he just didnt have his head on straight till his millionaire status got threatened.

Blocking H-Back that understands the offense - can train McDonald and recognize immediately from film what they ask Walker to do.

Jim didnt run the pistol in Stanford
what the hell all of yall are totally changing the subject... it was not about low draft picks being useless or what ever...it was about players doing bad for one team, then going to another team to being much better.

the very few who did do that were because they had potential...either Athletically or were just gifted in on the field.

Ahmad Brooks was ALWAYS gifted athletically.
