With Dobbs out with injury, and with Cowboy out with injury, all of a sudden Baalke and company keeping 7 DL seems brilliant. I think with an open roster spot the niners need to grab the best available FA DT/NT or bring up Jerod Ellie from the PS. I was hoping for Matt Masifilo but it appears Tampa Bay has now poached two off of the niners practice squad, Chase Beeler, and Matt Massifilo.
Ian Williams and RJF have not proven they can go a lot of snaps like Ray McDonald and Cowboy can. If they are to be starters they need fresh sets of legs to rate in to keep their legs fresh.
The team has been super deep this year. RJF played a fine game vs. the pats. I think we will be fine. THe key isn't so much to sack Russel this week anyway. You want to plug the run and play contain on Wilson. We'll probably play Bowman as a spy on Wilson, and mix it up with Willis as the spy once in a while. Wilson is not going ot run free on us. No way.

RJF has really improved and he, MO, is way ahead of Dobbs and Tuk in performance.
Without a doubt this MUST be addressed in the upcoming draft.
The positive side is RJF has Millions of dollars to movtivate him for the next few games. If he can prove he is a starter quality 3-4 DE his value in FA will go way up. If he is average, and is a career back up, his value will pllummet.
