Well that means we never had a shot at Merriman since Buffalo has a weaker record than we do.

Yup, they were first in line and never hesitated. Oh well.
So does this mean that Gibson might actually have a shot at seeing the field?

I would bet on it. 4th round pick by a team that knows its linebackers?

I like the pickup.

You'd think they would at least give him a shot at some point this season. We're going to have to keep him on the 53 man roster and he can play special teams, so he'll be active.
hopefully he will show that we don't need parys anymore.
You don't put Merriman on special teams! Period.

WTF are you talking about?
I like Gibsons coordination and the way he moves like he sinks his body changing directions and has a burst like a coiled spring. Harralsen has a very slow burst and many runners get by him because of that. I think Gibson would be much better in that area. I am wondering why they don't use Harralsen at MLB. I think they first tried him there but his pass drops hurt him. I read he had improved in that area and Harralsen is good in the area of taking on blockers and tackling. I think he could handle the OL blocking and shore up the MLB spot.

But the 49ers claimed prospect Thaddeus Gibson off waivers from the Steelers this week. Gibson probably will not step on the field this season, but the 49ers view him as a prospect for next season -- and, possibly, beyond.
