Wait and see says I, but he will either make Dixon shape up and break out or he will surpass him, either Gore will get his breather on short yardage, but it'll be hunter to spell him more cause Hunter can break it running or receiving, just can't take a possible long time pounding.
I like the move... could help Dixon pick up a North and South running style. Jacobs works hard and is a team player. 4-8 hard runs a game will keep Gore fresh and help ware down opposing Ds. Maybe he can fill in at Right Guard too
watch the games again...when Gore was not in there Hunter was there and they'd fit in Dixon when needed...its just that Hunter is a f'n Beast...even though Gore was banged up a bit, he still played as well. The regular season Giants game is when Dixon had to be used alot.
if you watch all of Dixons runs this season and compare them to last year...then you can see he changed up on the dancing...he has been doing a better job running forward.
I think Dixon has better vision than Jacobs...and better acceleration...as well as being more agile when need be.
I hope these motherf**kers dont think they're going to come in here and have a roster spot given to them. They better have s**t left in the tank and be ready to work and get better if they want to be a 49er.
Moss, I think he will work with last years fiasco giving him an eye-opener.
Cox, I think has the desire.
Jacobs, I don't think he makes the f**king team.
1. If his contract has minimal guarantees so he be cut of he is soft or a malcontent
2. He has to prove his value running with power up the middle for short yardage TDs and 1st downs.
(Gore is not breaking tackles like he used to, he pushes hard after contact, but can't push the pile. BJ must prove he can smash through or push the pile.)
LOVE IT -- If he proves to be an excellent relief runner in the 4th quarter to relieve Gore as he tires -- keeping Gore fresh for the next game -- an putting away games with ball control -- something we didn't do well last year.

I am voting for what I have saw over the last two years...a RB who runs soft most of the time, talks crap, and is disruptive. So I say hate it, but wait and see is ok.
Could not agree more. I live in NJ and watch most Giants games (so long as they're not on at the same time as our beloved red and gold)...
THIS GUY SUCKS. Hasn't looked good since 2008. Slow, weak runner that runs his mouth every chance he gets.
Now, if anyone can get something out of this washed-up bum, it's Harbaugh and Rathman. But I still hate his attitude and his skill set until further notice.
Quite possibly my most hated player in the league.
