The Roster List (53 Man)

I don't follow your logic.

Defense needs more players in rotation than the offense. How often are we subbing out the Quarterback, Running back, Tackles in comparison to D line, DBs and LBs?

Need more people to go from 3-4 to Nickel to Dime.
I don't understand how Jeff U or michael robinson continue to take space on the roster. Roland is a better ILB than Jeff U.

Yeah, no way Roland is better than Ulbrich. Ulbrich has always been solid, which is why he's been on the team for 10 years.

Genius. G E N I U S.

Probably a word you want to spell right.

Now is that really needed Nick? I think not. We all knew what he meant.

Two words: Special Teams.

Yes, but we all love irony...
Well i was wrong on Hill being cut. I thought he was gone.

It's gonna be tough to be the guy who's cut when Crabtree arrives. I think it's gonna be between Spurlock and Hill.

It surprised me that we retained Demetric Evans and Marques Harris and that we only kept two TEs.

Maybe I need to pick up the pipe. I have never thought Jeff U has ever been a decent ILB. Those two guys take up space from people that can actually contribute on defense or offense. I don't know if sheets will ever be a #1 RB somewhere but he could have been a decent 3rd down back.

Sheets was never gonna make an impact on the running game. Between Gore/Coffee and the FBs, he never was going to get more than 2-3 carries a game.

Which is why when you're down to the 3rd team, you need to be able to contribute on special teams because you're not going to be seeing much other action on the field. This is precisely why guys like Ulbrich and Robinson make the team.

I see him on the practice squad though.

What you think of Jeff is one thing, but to say Roland is better is loco. Heaven forbid, if Willis goes down you are saying you would rather have a UDFA in there instead of a ten year vet who took a pay cut, in order to take up less space and make the ultimate contribution to the team, save them money.

Jeff and Robinson contribute more on special teams than any two players on the 49ers roster.

Coffee is the 3rd down back. 3rd down back is first and foremost, a blocker, Coffee is way better than Sheets at that.

I was surprised by Sheets. He seemed to have some real burst out of the backfield, though he was dancing around a bit last night.

Hopefully he does get on the practice squad, because if Gore gets hurt, the Niners are going to need to call up a RB.
Who gets released when Crabtree signs?
Per Sing:


"The overarching theme behind the roster decisions for Singletary and his coaching staff was work ethic.

“You want guys on the team that have a common denominator – that football is important to them and they have a great work ethic,” Singletary said. “As a coach, I was pleasantly surprised that all of these guys had a great work ethic. Certain guys just stepped up in certain areas and did things that made you look twice. Whether it be Spurlock, Jean Francois or Curtis [Taylor], I just think they did a good job. As we sat down as a staff, their names just kept coming up.”

Sweet, we should win the Superbowl if we're ever measured by our work ethic! f**k that, I want guys who show up on game day, not just the clowns who try extra hard to work out in practice to make up for their lack of talent. Yes discipline and worth ethic is important, but at the end of the day I want a gamer.
