[eyeroll] Yes, because a 4th string running back is waaaaaayyyyy more important than a 2nd string safety.

um sorry man do you know how f---ing aweful Mark Roman is

Do you know how "aweful" it is to not have a backup with Lewis having his second concussion in two weeks? Obviously not.

I don't see much of a difference.

Didn't we start off with 13 DBs last year? I remember being surprised at how many DBs Nolan had on the 53 man roster at the start of the year.
Looks about right to me.

True there was about 12 CB and Safeties
I knew Bear would not make the team, and everyone on here bashed me for it.
You know how much Niner Talk loves a player with a nickname.

In the immortal words of Agent 86, Maxwell Smart: "Sorry, Chief."
wow, it sucks that Sheets didn't make the team, I'm glad Jason Hill did.

what gives with cutting Finely and Pascoe? We would have to pick somebody else up in FA, I can't see us going into the season with 3 TE's...it looks like Spurlock might become expandable or one of the CB's, Roman?

why wasn't Sims cut instead of Boone? I guess Boone isn't all that good and they believe Sims to be a better fit? Who knows, maybe he worked on some things in the offseason and has become a better player
How long does it take for a player to clear wavers and put on the practice squad?

According to Maiocco's Twitter, we can start filling out the practice squad tomorrow.
Released

T Jacob Bender

T Alex Boone

WR Dobson Collins

DE Pannel Egboh

TE Joe Jon Finley or Bear Pascoe

CB Eric Green

G Kyle Howard

CB Terrail Lambert

FB Brit Miller

DT Khalif Mitchell

LB Jay Moore

TE Bear Pascoe or Joe Jon Finley

WR Maurice Price

FB Bill Rentmeester

LB Justin Roland

RB Kory Sheets

G/C Matt Spanos

T Joe Toledo

LB Mark Washington

WR Dominique Zeigler

My best guess at who will be targeted for PS in bold.
Sheets and Miller are my two favorites to be released. I hope they both make it to the PS. But I can see another team picking up Sheets. If so, I hope he tears it up, he reminded me of Sproles because of his speed.

Nobody needs a stinking Blocking TE! We already have VD anyway. I would rather add 2 OL than 1 OL and a blocking TE.

"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.

I am stunned that you are not an exec on an NFL team

That makes two of us.....I dont think I would do much worst than the Niners the last 6 years......


BTW, I'm very disappointed with our current roster. We have not upgraded at all fom last year. The Marvel Smith fiasco is unacceptable....unacceptable! As some have pointed out, the guy was never even cleared to fully practice from TEAM DOCTOR - YES, TEAM DOCTORS! That means they had a pretty good idea how things could end up. There is no way we should have bet on this guy being our starter. Bring him in fine, but no back up?

I say if we suffer another losing season Scotty needs to lose his job. I'll make myself available to take over.....

Seems like Briggs played his way onto the roster last night--showing that he's at least one OLB who can bring some pressure on the QB.

I really like the move at QB, making N. Davis the 3rd QB. Who doesn't.

Keeping RJF on the DL seems like a very smart move as well.

Keeping Taylor at FS gives additional insurance in case Goldson gets injured.

I like the fact that they kept both Spurlock and Hill behind Bruce, Battle and Morgan (and Jones).

Only real issue I see is the OL, where I'd like to see someone a little stronger than Sims at backup OT. Perhaps they fill that need with someone else's reject.

In my opinion, the PS will look like:

Boone
Spanos
Sheets
Miller
Mitchell
Egboh
Zeigler
J. Moore (???) or Toledo (if he's eligible.)

I think both Boone and Sheets will clear waivers and make it to PS. Still too many red flags for another team to take a risk?

I think Taylor was kept due to M Lewis 2nd concussion, if this keeps up he will be on IR soon.
Exactly. Concussions have cumulative effect. I wouldn't be surprised if they keep Lewis out for another two weeks. With Lewis a question mark and Roman obviously not a favorite, Taylor is close to being a starter if anyone else gets hurt.

Also, Taylor has good size and speed. He began to make some nice instinctive plays in the Dallas and San Diego game. Made some rookie mistakes as well but he earned his spot.
