Brandon Jacobs Suspended (per twitter)

Does anyone feel that this may hurt our chances at signing FA's? Who's going to want to sign with a team and sit on the bench all year? Jacobs didn't play due to injury. Now there is another player not playing due to injury. Look at Shawntee.

Now sure if it will be a big deal, but I think it could.

I don't think it hurts our chances. Look at Whiter, Rogers and Goodwin they all got plugged in right away.
With any luck it will deter immature free agents from signing with the 9ers.
Just look at Jacobs' teammate Mario, he got plugged right in. I honestly thing Jacobs was gonna get some run until that injury in preseason.. probably still not enough run for his liking but would have gotten more. Then he started chirping a bit on twitter etc and Harbaugh put his palm to Jacobs grill and stiff-armed him for 10 weeks.
this guy is a baby! I wish I got millions of dollars to do nothing at all. Do not cut him, sit him as inactive and elevate LMJ if somebody else gets hurt at RB we will need him unfortunately. In the mean time, have Harbaugh, Rathman, Roman talk to him and tell him to STFU

So he could possibly fumble the game away against the Giants in the playoffs? No thanks. Cut his ass

its officially on PFT

if we have any ugly secrets expect for them to come out once the season is over
The timing of his recent comments gives me a vibe that LMJ is getting more than just a 'nod', but possibly a shot Sunday at the usual snaps Kendell Hunter is asked of.

We can't get a proper idea about his effectiveness without giving him ample opportunity. With our O-line, I'm certain he could do damage.

Was it a good idea to b***h and moan on a public forum? NO WAY!

But you guys have no idea what Harbaugh and others told him when they signed him. I'm sure they said he would get the opportunity to prove himself in games.


THIS IS ONE MORE EXAMPLE OF HARBAUGH ACTING LIKE HE IS SMARTER THAN THE WHOLE ROOM! Everyone knew we needed a RB to replace Gore. What did we do in the draft? Take a WR that NO ONE thought was first round material. All we had to do was draft Doug Martin, who was rated at the bottom of the first round, and we would not have needed to get Brandon Jacobs, Lamichael James, or Dixon. Keep Cartwright for special teams and that would have opened up roster spots.


ALL OF YOU DRINKING THE KOOL AID need to give Jacobs a little slack. Is he acting dumb? Yes. But man, none of you know the whole story

lulz

why not stay in New York then?

o right, he had issues there too with his PT and coach
had Hunter not go down, I bet they would have cut his ass already. But now we need the depth

might still happen. IF and I mean IF Jewel Hampton shows something dont be surprised to see Jacobs let go around week 15 just like Braylon.
Unhappy 49ers

Alex
LMJ

This--and I don't recall when players can be picked up, but would not wish him to return to the Giants.

I'm assuming the waiver process would still apply through the regular season, so interested teams put in a waiver claim and claiming team with the worst record gets him.
