Discuss 49ers' todays cuts

LMJ being cut is insane and laughable. Dixon is a solid backup who can play special teams. You need a guy like him.

LOL.....no. Miller is the fullback, period. Dixon is there for ST and goal line, that is it. James will have a role on this team and will be a regular contributor, his unique skill-set is highly useful.

Seriously, Bruce Miller is one of the better FBs in the league. You want to rotate him every couple games with Anthony Dixon?

Seriously?

If we are leading and the game is over -- yes. Why put one of the best at risk.
The San Francisco 49ers have placed defensive tackle Tank Carradine, defensive tackle Quinton Dial, running back Marcus Lattimore, tackle Luke Marquardt and cornerback Eric Wright on the Reserve/NFI List.

The team has also announced that wide receivers Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham will be placed on the Reserve/PUP List.

Players on both lists do not count against the 49ers active roster, and will not be eligible to practice until at least the Tuesday following the completion of week six of the NFL schedule.

The 49ers have also placed cornerback Chris Culliver on the Injured Reserve List. Defensive tackles Lamar Divens and Lawrence Okoye have been waived/injured.

Yep, so much for Manningham. I've been telling people this whole time. Dude had his entire knee wrecked, don't count on him to contribute in any meaningful way this season.

He implied he wanted to rotate them as actives--meaning Bruce Miller would be inactive for some games while Anthony Dixon started.

Huh? He's on the PUP list, not the IR. He'll be back for week 7 in all likelihood.

No indications that he won't be back.

Were you expecting him to show something given he has NEVER played football before?

I agree, I believe he tore 2 ligaments in that knee. For a guy who's not particularly big or fast and who relies on his cutting ability, him being 100% for the 2nd half of the season is optimistic. I also think that as much as we don't want to say it, Crabs is pretty much done for the year.

Makes me wonder if he actually got "hurt" on Sunday or not. Helps him clear the waivers

He'll make it to the PS, no team is going to waste a spot on their 53 for him. He may get some offers to join another teams PS, but I believe he likes the team and Jimmy T enough to stick with us for another year.
