I did not like the idea of bringing him to SF, since his skills were clearly declining
However, I think it would be the right thing to do out of respect for what was a HOF career.
If we have not been eliminated from the playoff hunt, then Bruce should be allowed to dress for the game and get introduced to the crowd as a member of the starting offense, take a bow, and then take seat on the bench, where he should have been all season.
Look Bruce has been a solid citizen for us and was very solid for us when he got playing time. I applaud us for bringing him on board and I think that we need to do the classy thing and let him play in a final game against them. I have a feeling the locker room will stand up and make sure that this happens.
We could deactivate Battle, or Jones. Both of them have been useless this season. Besides I feel like Bruce is a better WR than both of them. Let the vet do the classy thing, get a final standing O from his former home crowd.

There's a good chance we're going to be out of the playoffs, its against the worst team in the league.
What's the harm.
Issac Bruce to the Rams is basically what Jerry Rice is to us. He's the best WR to ever have played for them. I don't care if its the Rams or not. Bruce has been one of the best WRs to play for the last 10 years. He deserves to play his last game in front of him home crowd.
The only reason he shouldn't play in this game is if he is hurt.
