The return of Aldon Smith and Dial's first game already under his belt, we don't need to rush Carradine.

I agree with this but I'm still disappointed.....IMO, why not just have Dobbs be inactive and give Tank his plays? Plenty of time I know, but I want to see Tank on the field sooooo bad.
tank needs to play. he's been off for a year he's been saying he was ready since camp. baptized by fire he plays defense. let him go out there and mix it up a little bit. hit folks and run around the yard

a handful of snaps is not going to lose us the game. Nothing like game speed to get you up to speed.
i agree with you wholeheartedly.

I think it's Fangio. He likes micromanage everything and this is very typical if him. Tank would probably be more effective but fangio doesn't like guys walking onto his team. Hopefully harbaugh forc the issue. 10 snaps are exactly what tank needs.

Harbaugh did day himself that Tank would be the first player activated and he was and we all know how giddy Tomsula was when we drafted Tank. It leaves me to wonder about Fangio and his preference for veterans but what do I know? Absolutely nothing but I just want to ensure we don't wear ourselves thin as we seemed to have done late last season on our front 7. Use this depth baby!

Dial took all of 3 practices to be active on gamedays.
This guy hasn't played a snap of football in nearly a year. He's probably rusty as hell and what better way for him to shake off the rust than give him a few snaps this Sunday? Gotta happen sooner rather than later. Fangio's stubbornness when it comes to rookies is unbelievable...

put him in for Ray Mac on downs that Aldon is also in and he'd be getting 1v1s cause of Aldon, Brooks and Justin. Great way to get your feet wet after a year away from game speed.
i dont understand why this guy is not ready yet lol

Knee injuries are tough. I think his was one of those really bad ones.

Totally different sitch. Come on your memory can't be that short.

Dorsey strained a ham and we needed a NT. I bet Fangio was opposed to the idea too but I have nothing to back that up.

I would like to see Tank over dobbs or tje but if he can't execute the run scheme then I won't be hurt.
