Totally agree. We are bringing in some very volatile players who can run their mouth when things aren't working well.
Yeah I agree. It seemed that players loved playing for Harbaugh though with his enthusiasm and intensity and he got the best out of our guys last year so I trust he knows what he's doing. Wih that said, I just don't understand this signing. I would have rathered drafted a young guy to start grooming NOW where he could pick up some experience, a year of coaching under one of the best coaching staffs in the NFL, and not pick up that many miles on his legs in the process. All of this as opposed to waiting for next year when that running back will be casted into the fire much more quickly. Jacobs used to be a great inbetween the tackles runner then he lost his mind and believed he was Fred Astaire.
There's nothing to say they won't draft a RB this year. This just removes the need
to draft one at a particular spot.We've created competition for that short yardage back position, and can therefor continue to look at the draft for BPA.
Personally, I'd almost rather take a RB next season. We'd still have Gore to show them how it's done, and good RBs tend to produce early. Really good crop of runners coming out next year.
