Yes but it could delay it for a year when some better running backs in the gore mold will be in the draft as compared to this year? since gore is not broken we can put a band aid on it and as many have said, the coaches are not big fans of dixon and here in the second off season is when you see the trash from the previous regime that was tolerated last year taken to the redemption center... spencer,. norris, chilo, dixon

I totally agree, it is all about camp competition. One year deals rock outside of core players because they can be cut at the whim of Baalke without a lot of dead money consequences.

The Niners needed first downs and the ability to get into the end zone.

Randy Moss added
Brandon Jacobs added.

Actions speak that the coaches want less of Akers and more TD's.
never understand people who moan about what we did or did not do in the red zone last year so they address it by adding these guys and fans are not happy with the solution they came up with
what the fpucjkkk?!!!!!!!!!!!!
Frank Gore, Brandon Jacobs, Kendall Hunter?! I like this a lot myself!
no more dixon tweeting. finally some peice
I do like the concept of raiding role players from the team that just beat you in the championship. We use to do that in the golden era

I kinda feel the same way.

I wanted us to draft a RB.

In absolutely no way does signing a 29 year old running back to a 1 year deal stop us from drafting a RB. First round or otherwise.

Jacobs, like Moss, is not a lock to even make this team.

If it were this signing alone, but if you factor in Gore, Hunter and now the Jacobs signing, drafting a 1st round RB is definitely a luxury that this team (on the verge of a Super Bowl run) might not be able to afford. Not saying it can't or won't happen, but it's not likely (IMO) unless Trent Richardson falls to #30.

Terrible signing...don't get me wrong, will root for him if he stay on, but I don't like that we're signing a over-the-hill RB who has run his mouth more than his legs ever could. I understand with the whole "competition" with Dixon thing, but couldn't we have just drafted a powerback with a little less mileage?

Gore isn't looking too good himself...but we do need someone better via FA and Draft

He woulda gotten us the 2 yards on 2 tries to seal the NFC Championship game. No doubt in my mind. He may even able to punch it in better than Gore from short yardage too.
"Brandon Jacobs is a 49er" if this is still true, after the draft, after any UDFA's come in, and after training camp...I will be surprised. I don't like the player, seems to me he is just an old fat Anthony Dixon with Super Bowl ring. I like the move, and expect more like it, I don't however like the player. I like the move because it shows we are looking to improve, we are looking to create competition in camp, so all in all I'm okay...for now, but I gotta hope we can and will do better than this guy!

ahhhh, the infamous word that has been used so much to describe so many niner free agent signings ,, walt harris, carlos rogers justin smith, it seems to me the people that we have gotten rid of over the last couple of years, many of whom never did anything wherever they landed next was the garbage. i think that will continue to be the case this off season, we are taking out the trash of the former regime, that trash will never produce at a high level and we will be the better team for it.if i am wrong and spencer, morgan and whoever else we get rid of end up all pro and go to the super bowl i will admit i was wrong.. but i am not going to be wrong
