I didn't know Ginn was hurt That means or returning crew is really decimated ... Ginn, Williams, and Hunter

we still have Cox who is more than capable to do return duties (and by more than capable i mean he wont fux it ups)

He's obviously got some talent, or he wouldn't have been drafted so high. Maybe Willis and Bowman can show him how it's done.

We've turned other people's trash into gold before. Brooks and Cox are both contributing at a high level....

while were at it i heard Jamarcus and ryan leaf are available.

i started to over react yesterday(big shock) but a good poster reminded me we have cox as a back up punt returner to ginn. i was thinking they would activiate jenkins for wide out and return duties but with this signing of the hall guy, must mean they do not have trust in jenkins of course maybe jenkins and hall will battle it out in practice this week and the best guy will be activated sunday to be a wide out but more importantly be a kick return man to back up ginn or in case ginn gets hurt. i think the hall guy is a more than respectable return guy who I think it will work out ok. after ginn fumble, i think a fair catch is a plus for us

yall still knocking Dixon huh ... every time he got the ball this year he has done well...he even got us some positive yards to set up a 3rd and short I believe, when he was called up after Hunter got hurt.

I think Dixon will do well...if anything, when ever he is asked to come in for Gore, at least he can help pass block or catch out of the back field. He has a good rapport with Colin...he does a good job sensing when Colin is going to run and quickly latches on to a defender in the area.

that all being said, I'm really really really going to miss Hunter I know some like him already, but I think some underestimate how important he is to our offense. He usually gets us out of funks with 10 yard runs here and there with great vision and toughness.
i think hunter is the most valuable player on our offense that no one talks about. he must be shy. Have you ever heard him to a interview? i hope he only misses a few weeks. i actually have more trust in dixon than i do in jacobs! dixon does not need to light up the world, he just needs to get positive yards, make a catch, make a block, spell gore and not fumble.. i am not rooting for him to fail,, however if he does fumble the ball or make mistakes, that may be the end of the line for him
Bleed49ers has a good point and one many of us have wondered about . Why bring Moss here if he isn't going to be used? OK, kyle is out, so let's see #84 in there for most plays. I doubt he's not in shape. Manningham is putting on a clinic for WRs on how to get open in bump and hold Ds. Mario is giving fakes off the LOS, fakes before his break, fakes after the catch...the whole enchilada. We could legitimately play mario and randy full time, along with Crbs, with Delanie and vernon as receivers #4 and #5. We got loads of talent there, in fact way more than we needed originally. Now we should use them. Sure, bring up AJ. Get him some plays in games not against SEA or PATs. Let him learn in gametime. But between frank, vernon, delanie, Crbs, mario and randy,, we got not just 3 go to receivers, we got 6. Now is the time to put them all to use, and that means a lot of PT for moss, mario, crabs, and delanie. Coach got burned in the Giants NFC playoff game with only one WR, and that was Crbs, with vernon as 2nd receiver. Crbs never got of LOS, and that left one receiver for alex the whole game, and that was vernon. Not hard to cover only 1 guy on pass routes. Coach endured that , got burned by it, and wah-lah, Moss and Mario show up for TC. Yes we lost kyle, but we are stacked for receivers. Before Coach had to split playing time. Playoffs are around the corner, and it is time to use all the guys listed above. Go into play offs with 6 top flite receivers. They can't all be doubled. This yrs NFC championship game is going to look completly different from last yrs. And we are going to win it...ALL.
i wished we still had chris owisu (sp)
they signed WR Chad Hall to the PS. Jenkins should see some action, hopefully at slot. With his speed he could force some match-up problems.

With two roster openings forthcoming, the 49ers are expected to activate running back Jewel Hampton from NFI/reserved list and to promote someone from their practice squad. That player likely will be linebacker Michael Wilhoite, who also played fullback in the offseason, or safety Michael Thomas. Both have special teams value.Read more here: http://blogs.sacbee.com/49ers/archives/2012/11/hunter-suffered-achilles-tear-not-sprained-ankle.html#storylink=cpy
Really sucks Williams and Hunter (possibly Ginn) are out. But HELLOOOOOOO #1 and #2 picks!

I also think one of the moves will adding Jewal "Bowling Ball" Hampton to the 53, not that they need him, but to protect for next year
They signed Chad...maybe as a special teams player only? So he goes into the game and you bench Ginn till his hand is better?

For Hunter I think Brandon will be activated.
Hunter done for season, torn Achilles.

I think there is a chance the 49ers are strongly considering a second kicker to push Akers.

I was so happy to hear about Bowman new contract! But losing Hunter for the year really really put me in the dumps. Huge loss imo.
