Brandon Jacobs a 49er

He will be a #3 back, getting short yardage carries. I would rather have him than a rookie.
Having people who suck is risky. If they don't believe in Dixon fine, but we're much better off drafting a young guy
with no baggage. Yeah He's got rings. He's also got a shi**y attitude, no moves and not much power.

I immediately started cursing. Money down the drain. Where are the stats that tell you this guys will get you the 1st down when you need it.

wow dude, its a 1 year deal he can be cut anytime, theres no risk.....calm down

this is the problem I have with this....loading the roster with 1-2 year deals eats into the final 53, this signing just stopped us from taking a RB in the draft IMO

I disagree, they could easily cut Dixon and draft a late round RB who will play special teams as well.
Nice pickup for the off-season competition.

You know we had the #1 rush D, right?

Nobody can run through our D.


Exactly, As I have stated I'm not a fan of this signing, but as far as complaining about his production in that game, I think we need to remember who he was playing against.

I hope we still draft a RB to be the #3 guy. I'm not a fan of Jacobs at all. He's probably the slowest RB in the league, and doesn't bulldoze over people like he used to. He's not even that effective on short-yardage situations anymore. I've seen way too many plays where a defender barely touches him, and he crumbles to the ground.

where would we put another RB?

Gore
Hunter
Dixon
Jacobs
Rock
and Miller at FB

agreed. We won't be drafting a 3rd-4th rd RB or a RB who would compete. The team IMO will keep 5 backs(Gore, Hunter, Jacobs, Cartwright and Miller).
Nvm wrong thread

Why does it necessarily stop them from drafting one especially if one drops to them that they covet?

Still, I hear you man.
Won't make the team

Moss, Manningham, Jacobs if any of them start getting out of line they will get to know Patrick Willis and Justin Smith.

More likely, they'll get to know Braylon. Somewhere other than 49ers HQ.

I would also add Vernon and Joe. Pat, Justin, Vernon, and Joe are all leaders who transend their side of the ball to become team leaders. They will have the locker room on lockdown.

I've always been fascinated by Jacobs. He's just so tall for a running back.

I mean... the guy must have had bricks for hands coming into college, right?

I've read that his hands have improved over the years with the Giants. Not to say that they're good, just not as awful. Anybody who watches him a lot agree with that?

Because a rookie wont beat out Gore, Hunter, Miller, or Jacobs for playing time. Rock will be a ST guy so we dont have the room on the roster for another guy...cant keep 6 RB's on the 53, we dont have the space.

do the math...we have 6 on the roster right now
Wasted roster spot. Won't matter if Hunter remains Gore's backup.
