**Update Eric Wright signed to one year deal**

Why the hell is he in LA? Even if it is a day off, why would be not be in the Bay Area? I guess he didnt even travel to GB with the team.

I was really excited to see him contribute.
LA is only an hour flight from the Bay. It's not a big deal.

but you don't even consider many of the possible reasons like the field conditions. you just fly off the cuff claiming demotion like he's been playing poorly. which is not the case whatsoever.

dude, again, maiocco reported coaches didn't have confidence in him

i'm sorry if a beat writer who reports facts and not assumptions isn't enough for you
Both Matts are not afraid or would beat around the bush to not say Wright was demoted.

He was definitely there. What the hell does it matter where he's at on his day off? Some people...


Anyways I'm thinking it was more of a game time decision. Probably wanted to see how he would do in the cold with that bad hammy.

Besides, if it's true that Cox out played him then so be it. Hot hand wins. As nice a story it is that Wright gets to play for his hometown team, the niners don't owe him anything. It's not like we broke the bank for him. I'm sure the strained hamstring had a lot to do with Cox out playing him. In the little play time wright has had, he's looked pretty well.

No, that's not a view from the Ritz Carlton. Wright is staying east of Staples Center. The picture you see in his Facebook shows the Figueroa Street entrance to Staples Center with the Convention Center to the South of Staples.

I'm beginning to suspect that some fans don't think players should have a life outside of football. Some wives, children, and other matters to tend to. And some of them, God forbid actually enjoy those things.
From Barrows new article:

The question is why the 49ers tapped Cox, who only had been signed six days earlier, instead of Wright, who had been with the 49ers longer. Wright did not play on defense; even in the dime packages, it was safety C.J. Spillman, not Wright, who entered the game.
One theory is that Cox is a bigger, more robust player than Wright and is a good tackler. If the Packers were going to run the ball with big, powerful Eddie Lacy when the 49ers were in the nickel formation -- which they did 21 times -- the 49ers may have thought they were better served having Cox in the game.
Another consideration may have been injury. Wright tweaked his hamstring and that Green Bay's frigid cold is terrible for muscle pulls. The forecast for Charlotte, N.C. Sunday calls for 64-degree temperatures with a 20 percent chance of rain. The 49ers certainly won't be in their nickel packages as much Sunday. But the warmer temperatures might mean that Carlos Rodgers, who also is dealing with a hamstring strain, could play.
