Since you're still saying the Niners will cut their third best receiver in K. Williams in favor of a backup FB in Cartwright, then I'm still saying "No."
Agreed. People forget that Costanzo was a special teamer first, as will Rock, and both are damn good. You don't cut a good/great Special Teamer for a 6th WR who won't see the field. I don't see us activating all WRs, I can see now with just 4(Moss, Crabs, Manningham and Ginn), we never activated 5 last year on game days. This would free up a spot for Hunter and Jacobs to both be active. We won't use more than 3 WR sets, so main weapons would be Moss, Crabs, Manningham, Vernon, Delanie, Gore, James, Hunter and Jacobs.
My actives on my roster would be.
QB(2)- Alex and Kaep
RB(4)- Gore, James, Jacobs and Hunter
WR(4)- Moss, Crabtree, Manningham and Ginn
TE(3)- Vernon, Delanie and Byham
OG(3)- Iupati, Kilgore, Boone
OT(3)- Davis, Staley and Person
DL(5)- Smith, McDonald, Sopoaga, Jean Francois and Tukuafu
OLB(4)- Aldon, Brooks, Haralson and Johnson
ILB(4)- Willis, Bowman, Grant and Gooden
CB(4)- Rogers, Brown, Culliver and Cox
SS(2)- Whitner and Spillman
ST(5)- Akers, Lee, Jennings, Rock and Jones
Inactives- QB Johnson, WR Jenkins, OG Looney, DE Dobbs, NT Williams, CB Brock, FS Robinson
I would be torn, either we keep Hunter and Jacobs active, or one of them an activate Robinson. I don't see Jones inactive, he was too good on Special Teams in 2011.
