whats the deal with Anthony Dixon? Why is he on team?

I dont understand why Dixon never gets any snaps at running back. Is he that bad? If he is truly not a good RB, why dont we just get rid of him?

Personally, I kinda want to see him get some extended playing time while Gore gets a rest for the playoffs. I'm worried that another team will pick up Dixon in the offseason and he will become a superstar. We need to see what Dixon can do when given extended playing time at RB. If the Niners are ahead in the 4th quarter against Miami by alot, Harbaugh should put in Dixon and let him run alot
He's under contract through next season and he's still here primarily for his special teams value.
Special teams, special teams, special teams, the only real reason he's still got a roster spot, although since that's the case, I would have dumped him in favor of keeping Costanzo.
... AND he wants to be here, he fought to be here, and he learned a new position to stay here. I greatly prefer him over Jacobs' fat crybaby azz.

Special teams and a desire to be here, he sought out the coaches and said if I can't play RB give me reps at FB. Then he played extremely well in the preseason when given a chance, even if it was against 2s, 3s, and 4s - he played well and proved his desire to be here with his effort and commitment. He might not be an NFL RB but he works hard and wants to be here. I hate Dixon's dancing he does in the backfield but at least he privately spoke to the coaches and then proceeded to back it up with effort and play unlike Jacobs who is just moping about after he got injured.

FWIW, I heard Eric Davis in a radio interview leading up to the Bears game and the subject of Costanzo came up and why we let him go . . . and ED alluded that Costanzo was an incredibly odd character in the locker room and many teammates weren't that sad to see him go.

lol so he was cuckoo for cocoa puffs and he was a 1 trick pony. Sounds like 2 good reasons to send him packing.

difference is Ginn is still a good #4/5 WR, and an "elite" returner(as many people on this board have termed Ginn) is a hell of a lot more important then a 3rd string and 5th Inside Linebacker who plays behind 2 of the best starting ILBs in recent memory and Gooden and Grant are great backups with Grant likely starting for another team next year. Costanzo was random coverage unit player, Ginn is a returner 6 career TDs. Sounds a hell of lot more important then a wacky coverage unit player.

Back on topic. Dixon is an solid ST player and a serviceable #3/4 RB that wanted to put in the effort to stay here which is exactly why he is still here.

Lol sounds good! I hope he does his job well, he's a tool but at least he loves being a 9er and wants to help the team first and foremost!
