Nice try, but Michael Robinson is ineligible to go on any practice squad. It's for rookies or 2nd year players. Even if he was, there is no way we are keeping a 6th receiver (Ziegler) over a great special teamer and our best short yardage backer in Robinson.

Robinson is a pure failure as a short yardage backer but a good special teamer whom the coaches love. I'd like to see that Nittany Lion guy replaced by somebody who can get some yards for the Niners!!!!
QB: Alex Smith, Shaun Hill, Damon Huard


RB: Frank Gore, Glen Coffee, Thomas Clayton

sheets not Clayton.

MLB: Patrick Willis, Ahmad Brooks

Ahmad Brooks is OLB has been moved .

CB: Nate Clemetns, Tarrel Brown, Jahi Word-Daniels

Brown will be plying behind Walt and challenging him for the spot.


ROLB: Parrys Haralson, Brandon Long (NEED UPGRADE, Maybe Taylor)

Need an upgrade like Lawson with 3 sacks or what 8 sacks not enogh the other side should do more !

Add back in OT Barry Sims as a backup.
I like it better than anything I've seen so far, but I'm hoping Jimmy Williams shows enough to earn a spot (but agree with you he probably won't).
I"m sorry but we have to find a way to keep Damon Huard.... we need a capable backup if we plan to make the playoffs or continue in the playoffs...

if some think that Alex Smith is ready to come in and keep us in the playoff hunt if HILL goes down, AFTER NOT REALLY PLAYING FOR 2 YEARS, your kidding yourself and just being selfish.....

We need to do what is best for the team.....

Huard has done waaaaay better in this league than Alex.....and I would be much more comfortable with a Vet QB like Huard, than with Alex coming...

forget about your investment in a #11 football jersey just for on sec and think about what is best for the team.


I would also like to find a way to keep Jimmy Williams if possible..or Hudson...

but besides that... everything looks good.... I'm ready to make the Playoffs this year... are you?

Ditto, if Williams shows enough, Rossums spot could be in jeopardy, with Sheets or Battle doubling as a returner? Williams seems to be popular with the coaching staff.
I have big hopes of Alex Boone and Ricky Jean-Francois being big time players for us. Don't know why, just call it a hunch.

HI everyone... first post.

Nate Davis will be on the practice squad. I know we all would like to think he is the future, but he is at least 3 years away... and trust me, no one will pick him up off our practice squad... he is a 5th round pick for Pete sakes, with a (media emphasized) learning disability. He has much potential, so it is a wait and see situation.

Damon Huard as the 3rd string on 53 roster. He has experience and is a legit backup.
I believe only 5 guys can be kept on the Practice squad....or am I missing something?

welcome to the board.

as far as Huard being the 3rd string.

like I said in the previous post, I'd rather Huard as the 2nd string... and I think he will earn the backup roll during the preseason....

if given a fair opportunity

Thanks for the welcome.

Personally, and I hate to say this... I agree with Barbieri that Hill should start and Smith should be 2nd string. I have more confidence in Smith, and believe that Smith could (possibly) become a franchise QB in this situation. When nothing is expected of him, he might just surprise us all (probably more of a hope than based on any factual evidence). But I don't think that starting QB should be handed to Smith because he still has much to prove.

to be honest with you..... I know I might come off as a Alex "hater" or what ever to some on the board... but I would have NO PROBLEM if Alex became a Franchise QB for my 49ers...because that is what would be best for the team....just as Shaun Hill becoming the franchise QB or Nate Davis......

but only if everyone gets a fair chance.... and sometimes I feel that some on the Zone, put Alex Smith before what is best for the team....

and I am also worried about Scot's influence in this situation.... if by the end of the preseason, Alex doesn't play well.....and Huard and even Nate Davis out play him.... will the front office allow Mike Singletary do what is best for the team

also Zoners...would u?

I just have this weird feeling we might keep 4 QB's on the roster. Nate Davis on the practice squad would be picked up in a heart beat, IMO. And I doubt Huard gets cut, like I said in another thread, we aways have some kind of veteran presence at QB on our roster.
