Jacobs Tweet

Hit the juice Jacobs.

Just my opinion, but I think this guy's role on the team is as an emergency backup for Frank Gore. Frank Gore is absolutely vital to this offense, which is built to dominate with the run and control the line of scrimmage. We don't want to suddenly find ourselves deep in a playoff run and see it get sidetracked because Frank Gore gets hurt. He is that important to how our team is built.

If Gore goes down, Kendall Hunter does not step up into that downhill runner, smash-mouth role. He is a different, smaller, faster kind of player. He is the cornerback to Gore's Strong Safety. Kendall is lightning, Gore is thunder, Jacobs is backup thunder. He is also Heavy Thunder, a short yardage specialist. Dixon is backup lightning.

It's unusual to have a starting caliber halfback like Jacobs as your backup. I think you only do that if you absolutely know the Championship is a definite possibility for you. And it definitely is for us. That's why we have the lowest cap space in the league. Our coaches, front office, and ownership wants to win this thing NOW. This year. Look how close we were last year. We're even better today. You don't take a flyer on a veteran like Randy Moss if you're rebuilding. You absolutely go for it when you know you're one of the top 4 to 6 teams in the league and absolutely have a chance at winning the Super Bowl.

With the new stadium licenses for sale, with such an excellent all-around talent pool on both sides of the pool, this team is built to win a Championship immediately. Last year got away. Next year might be possible, but it's less likely than this year. Our focus is to win NOW.

Nobody forced Jacobs to sign the contract. If anything, he should be grateful he gets an extra year in his career that so far has been a great sabbatical for him. But as for his tweets, he's a professional athlete, of course he wants to play. I'd be worried about him if he was NOT lobbying, trying to get on the field somehow.

But imagine worse case scenario: Gore goes out and Jacobs steps in. Now he is angry, he has something to prove, he'll show you he's good enough.

I am not worried about this one.

Stopped reading at the bold print. Invalidated this entire post. Dixon may "think" he is lightning, but is actually very far from it. Have you even seen him run?

I talked to him(MM) about it he said he wanted to talk to Jacobs about it. He said he wanted to see if Jacobs would clear up what he meant by it. I thought he(mm) was being a real decent person and trully professional about it. It's what I'd want someone to do if I said something kinda dumb on twitter.... Got to realize if he outs everyone all the time he isn't the guy that Moss gives the only interview too...

Dixon is the backup to the #2 Halfback. He's the guy on the roster. What do you want me to say, cut him? If they had found a better option, they would have replaced him. Yes, there is a rookie but they seem determined to redshirt him. It doesn't invalidate the rest of the argument, which is Jacobs is there as Gore's backup.

Dixon can play special teams and he has been running better lately.

dixon is to slow on special teams, the loss of two studs from last year and the play of dixon is the main reason why our coverage has been horrid,, in regards to his running,, he runs vs the other teams second and third defense, hardly a ringing endorsement in my opinion. back up lightening is pretty funny. sorry but it is
He complained earlier in the year, had a chat with JH and was quiet. Now he tweets, will likely have another chat with JH and then...? If he is a locker room cancer he will be gone. If he is working hard and will be ready if needed...no problem. If he gave the game plan to NY...use him for misinformation in the playoffs. Cue the music for Secret Agent Man! Or should it be The Prisoner?

I don't understand coaches who let players rot on the bench and not even play in garbage time. It hurts a guy's morale to practice all week and then not see the field on Sunday. When we are up big late there shouldn't be starter on the field.

maybe they are in the dog house for whatever reason? in regards to ck, that is not the case cuz i think alex was playing at such a high level monday it made no sense to mess with qb thing but the jacobs thing is a puzzler

A lot of players were used last year, even hunter was used as a rookie

This whole red shirt thing is going to blow up in JHs face, hope im wrong

I agree with you.. Dixon needs to be used more often late in a games. you have to be active first......but seriously I do hate when Hunter is out there when the game is obviously over.
Not sure how many RBs they keep active but it seems they are committed to Dixon on STs and thus the dilemma. Gore, Hunter, Miller and Dixon are the guys they think most important to winning. So if they put Jacobs and James on the active list who do they sit? Same problem with Jenkins. Crabtree, Manningham, Moss, Williams, and Ginn for STs are keys to the offense and STs.

If they activate Jacobs and sit Miller then they eliminate their FB options (unless Jacobs knows that position). If they sit Dixon then the STs may suffer as they already lost their two most important STs players in FAcy. I would imagine Dixon is active to appease Seely. I wonder if Jacobs volunteered to play STs in training camp?

Playing all players occasionally is a great idea but which players to make active makes that difficult.

Maybe he's our secret weapon for the playoffs. With Aj and Lamichael.

JH may be training these guys up for 3-4 special plays so when we line them up in the playoffs, Bears or Falcons or whoever won't have a freaking clue what play we're about to do if all these 3 line up in the offense.
