Jacobs Tweet

Obviously im in the minority, and ive voiced my opinion enough for it to be heard, and hijacked this thread enough, Ill bow out now.
Since when is not starting a rookie a bad thing?

Look at the picks #31- the end of the second round of this last draft... Hard to imagine any of those guys starting if injuries arent a factor.

The Niners are grooming LMJ to take over KR duties for next year and Kyle Williams will handle PR duties. Jenkins will only have Crabtree and Manningham ahead of him on the depth chart next year.

I dont buy this grooming the kid idea. He practiced this stuff in college, this isn't new to him.

Ted Ginn is an expeirenced proven returner, and that starts over youth more times then not

Ginn was out for almost a month in the start of the season

James struggled with the winds at candlestick on return duties

IdahoNiner--for clarification the "strawman argument" is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of someone's statement. So when people say you can't judge a draft the first year it is not such an argument. Nor is saying the team's strength is such that draft picks can't get on the field. You might think it wrong but it is not a fallacy.

The only time you should judge a draft early is if a team makes a knot-head move, like trading a bunch of picks for a player who is nearly washed up...but George Allen put together some pretty good teams using this method so even that criticism has to be tempered--did they reach the playoffs with that trade? Last years draft was tailored for depth and many picks were made in case vets were either injured or not up to par.

For instance, Boone at RG is a risk, leaving backup OT empty so they took some guys to cover an emergency. The same is true of Jenkins. They believe he will be a good receiver in a year or two but it takes vets like VD half a year to begin to understand the offense, so what is the likelihood of Jenkins catching on right away. James is lightening in a bottle but there is no way he replaces or takes reps away from Gore or Hunter...they are just too good.

So again i ask, Why draft for those positions #1 and #2 overall, if you know there are other depth issues, and you know these guys wont sniff the field for atleast a season?

And please save the definition of a strawman. I know what it is, thats why i stated it. People are useing a strawman argument against my points. They are misrepresenting my statments. Like i said i know why these guys are riding the pine. My arguement is not that they shouldnt be riding the pine based on depth, but that we highly overdrafted at those positions.

You bring up George Allen? guy hasnt been been around since 1990, and please show me one draft where his entire draft class made no contributions year 1.

LOL...I believe there were a number of years when Allen didn't have a draft class. But aside from Allen, What position did we need on draft day more than WR? None. They signed Moss and Manningham but we desperately needed young guys to groom...and even with vets signing they were wise to also bring in a high draft pick.

James is a special talent and he drove Harbaugh crazy when he played against Stanford...so that was likely best player available. Gore is getting old, Hunter is a great back up but we don't know if he can be an every down guy or not.

Our backups at DL and OLB were decent and not a critical need...until Haralson, Cam Johnson and Flemming were injured. Johnson made it back for the practice squad.

Really think folks see some super DL or OLB who slipped through our fingers but I doubt any of them would have been playing much if at all.

Exactly! This guy is as dumb as a box of rocks... He seems surprised every time someone says something negative about his tweets... Duh! You are a public figure dumbass! People see it and will absolutely comment on your posts. B. Jacobs is an imbecille.
I think he just needs to hit the field more and everyone will be happy he could be a great fit if he works out. Everyone needs to realize our schedule is f#$kin rough and no one could go 16-0 with that competition. Lets hope were [playing possum;-)
You know, I was thinking.. maybe this is part of Harbaugh's plan for Jacobs. Let him get nice n pissed off for a long time, let him build that rage and then start busting him out late in the season and into the playoffs. He'll be fresh as hell while other teams are somewhat beaten up.

I hope that's what it is.
