Do you see us carrying 4 RB's on the roster ?

if all goes well nobody outside of Gore-Hunter-James-Miller will touch the ball
I think we will go with Gore, Hunter, James, and....wait for it......Dixon.

I know some just remember his dancing from a couple of years ago, and some want to bash him for that failed 3rd down attempt. But from what he showed in preseason last season (cut back on the dancing)..I think he will be kept around over Jacobs.

last preseason, he was play quite well...it was just that Hunter was playing amazing and earned the starting spot. He seems to have been working hard in the offseason with Kaep...and I wonder if he trimmed down a bit, after putting on weight for the team to play fullback last year.

And yes, you were taken to the woodshed last night.
my backside still stings
I think Dixon is gone for sure and Cartwright gets cut. I can't see them cutting jacobs for some reason and cartwrights only value is st. Plus I can't see them carrying six backs total.

Jacobs has been a touchdown machine every he has been in the league. I see them cutting Cartwright long before Jacobs

Touchdown machine solely because he has been the goal line back for the Giants. Ask any Giants fan and he'll tell you that he's never been a particularly good short yardage or goal line back, though. He's definitely a more talented RB than Cartwright, but doesn't provide ST value or value as a backup FB (he has always been big, but soft).
I can see us keeping 4 RB's as long as James and Hunter develop into good options @ KR/PR and are willing to play that Hybrid style game like Darren Sproles to give us for flexibility on offence.
i'd rather have a solid ST contrubutor as my 3rd/4th RB instead of a goal line back.

Interesting enough, I think Jacobs spot depends on people who are not RB's.

The Niners either carry one less OL than expected, or cut a DB (colin jones?) that isn't expected if Jacobs makes the team.

Culliver can also play safety. They may make a cut in the S position, knowing they can use him there in a pinch since they have Cox now.(Robinson makes the team)

If Owusu looks good and isn't on the PS, they will carry 6 WR as well. (Crabs, Mario, Moss, Jenkins, Ginn, Owusu)

RB's likely Gore, Hunter, James, Miller, Cartwright... with Jacobs if they cut the OL and DB position or place Owusu on the PS.


If they opt to keep someone extra at OL or DB, Jacobs or Owusu is out.


I think Haralson is out. Flemming and Johnson make the team.

Kyle Williams will make the team Ahead of Owusu.

I don't know about that. Jenkins and James both can fill William's role easily. Owusu may make the team based on bringing something different to the table.

This.....

Jacobs and his big mouth can kick rocks. We have too much talent in the backfield to waste a space on Jacobs. Gore/Miller/James would do just fine on the goal line....

P.S. Is Norris officially gone?

Cartwright is a lock IMO. The dude can contribute in so many ways. Fun to watch as well. He will end up a fan favorite.
