Spencer is an example, chilo is an example, norris will be soon and that is why i think the jury is still out on crabtree. the second year is when you see big changes
IF he runs his mouth and motivates the team thats awesome, I hope harbaugh keeps him out of the media though.
JH runs a pretty tight ship. My consern is controlling ALL of these characters. I hope it works out.

SF isn't NY. Jacobs will not face the type of media out here that he faced there, which means less opportunities for his to say something stupid.

Jacobs is a nice add. I would have preferred trading for Jonathan Stewart or adding an every down back through the draft (which we might still do) but Jacobs is a two-time SB winner and, when motivated, can be a handful. He's not perfect, but none of the 49ers free agent signings are. It would appear that the 49ers are looking to add depth and competition through free agency, which should allow them to key on BPA in the draft and not give any other team a "tell" with respect to what positions they are targeting.
Can he play guard
honest question for yall, does this turn out better or worse than when we signed desahun foster?
WTF?! I thought this would be a slow day in FA. Instead, I'm just now catching up on the news. So much for his trash-talking before the NFC game. I wonder if he's gonna go around and tell the "best D in the NFL" that he's still not scared of them in person. I guess A. Dixon is really in for some competition since I read he's missed blitz pick up assignments. If Jacobs could just improve on that alone, he may be an improvement over Dixon. I'm 50/50 on this signing, but if it gives us more depth, then I'll trust Rathman/Harbaugh on this.
Dixon has yet to tweet since we signed this guy.

next year is better much better prospects and better players

too bad that our team's core will be another year older and the title window a year shorter.
Aside from Justin Smith, Jennings, and Akers our team is relatively young (mentioning just guys who had an impact last year. I know Randy's old). Mostly all players are either in their prime or are before it.

agree, i think this removes a running back from the draft this year with the one year deal given to him. if i am wrong, i have been wrong before i think he will respect rathman and the head coach and if somone like the wonderfull bill from the pats can manage some guys who run thier mouth, who is to say we can not be the nfc version of that

I have never hated a current 49er, but I really don't like Jacobs at all. Dude runs his mouth to much, doesn't back up anything he says, and is soft.

he won't do that here. Rathman won't let him. Jacobs gets with the program or he's gone.

I don't like Jacobs either but this is another zero risk high reward kind of signing.
I hope so, just don't see any reward coming from this guy. Hopefully he makes me eat crow and I can change my tune about him. But I'm definitely not gonna be holding my breath waiting for it.

just like with the Josh Johnson signing, I think signing Jacobs is mostly a competition move, meant to push the younger guys at the position, who will in turn push the entrenched starter. If Jacobs makes the team he fills a valuable role. If not, its because Dixon (or another guy we get in the draft) played better and also fills that role. Either way its a win for the 49ers.

I think better. Jacobs is a very specialized back. We were counting on Foster to be a true #2, and I don't think we will be that foolish this time. Should Frank go down (knock on wood) Jacobs and Hunter would provide an excellent contrast in styles at the RB position. If Frank doesn't go down, he is at the very least a short yardage nightmare for other teams.
Why not Bush? When the 49ers passed on bush, I thought they were drafting a RB.

Brandon Jacobs is way better than Deshaun Foster ever was

I hear what your saying. And if anything he'll be a good tackling dummy (and i do mean dummy) during training camp for guys like Justin, Aldon, Patrick, and NaVarro to beat up on while keeping our other guys healthy.

he does that better and more than running with the ball, you do not think the coaches know that as well?I do not care about the age, i got no problem replacing another glen coffee potential with a vet who just won a super bowl for one year.
