I want Dixon on the team in 2012

You know what? I had sort of written Dixon off. However, seeing him as just a runner he needs to improve in short yards. However if he can beat out Rock Cartwright. Then I'm all for it. I would rather he learned from and was pushed by cartwright and he settle in as a nice role player.
I agree that Dixon's short yardage running really is his weakness. If Jacobs gains the explosiveness back that he had early in his career I really dont see how Dixon keeps his job. Gore, Hunter,LMJ, and Jacobs is a pretty crowded and talented stable of RBs. I think he ends up not making the team and being a backup somewhere.
I honestly hope he beats out cartwright also and we keep 5 rbs
If he stays, it will be because of ST ability and Rock Cartwright will be the odd man out. He still has to improve as a RB, especially in short yardage situations. He is in a dogfight for his job. Wonder if he has what it takes......
He has too much to prove to just be let go with his inexpensive contract. Jacobs and Cartwright are the. Players that need to prove themselves to unseat Dixon. Cartwright doesn't have much left and may have only been brought in as insurance until other specialteamers step into place.

If Dixon is indeed showing good ability, then Cartwright is the one that's expendable.
I have nothing against the guy, so let the best man win. I am glad to see them stack up the competition for a roster spot. But if he doesn't beat the other guys for a job, then see ya, no hard feelings.

If we keep 5 RBs that will likely include Bruce Miller unless we keep only 5 WRs.

Gore
Hunter
Jacobs
James
Miller
I want Dixon on the team
RB Corps:
#1 Frank Gore
#2 Kendall Hunter
#3 LaMichael James
#4 Brandon Jacobs

Special Teams/Fullback: (?)
Rock Cartwright

Cut:
Anthony Dixon

Practice Squad: (?)
Jewel Hampton

Out of all of them it will be Dixon and Hampton who will probably get cut. I just don't see Jacobs screwing up enough to lose his place on the roster. Hampton might be a practice squad back though at the same time. Cartwright will be special teams.

I dunno...that's just me.

What about Miller? I'm assuming he's the starting FB and Cartwright is the backup.

Good point. Dunno why I forgot him.

Yeah though, Cartwright would definitely be a backup no doubt.
Why???............he's the ugliest Cheerleader the 49ers have...........we have pleanty of cheerleaders (gold rush) out there for us on sunday's...........i think he's doomed unless they only use him as a special team player as a RB he is done here
