Do you have confidence in Dixon moving to FB?

Do you have confidence in Dixon moving to FB?

He should do ok there. But Miller is better. Dixon is not terrible at that position though. He's a more natural "big RB" than a FB for some strange reason. Although you would think with his size he would be a more natural FB. But if he wants to hit the field and get more playing time we need him at FB. He says he wants to play more. So fill the need we have. I think he can do it. He's pretty good. It's probably some dropoff but I don't think it's going to be huge. I think we can weather it. His running skills are actually pretty good. He can be a pretty good blocker.
Big Dix always does the job!
Miller was a huge loss, but I'm excited to see Dixon. I think his ability as a ball carrier should be fun to watch in our passing game.
Dixon is a gamer and has done well with whatever has been asked of him. I think he will fill in fine and I'm going to be sorry to see him go this offseason.
All hail boobie

Maybe we will run more 3 WR sets and leave Boobie out.

With our O-Line we should still be able to run with out a FB. May be easier Bc there are less players in the box

The only thing I don't like about Miller is he's really slow. Dixon adds much needed speed to the position.

Not to mention the energy to the team he brings which I think is underrated

This.
If used properly he could do some, not all but some, of the things Marcel Reese does for the Raiders in creating mismatches. In doing that, he could also be a key contributor in any future games against Seattle during the postseason.

I have to admit that I used to just be annoyed by the guys lame twitter and scatback running when he is a banger. Yet, over the last two years he has shown to be a hard worker who does whatever he needs to do to help the team. He loves football and loves the 49ers and I hope he can step in and contribute as much as he does. The guy just wants to play and now he has an opportunity. Will he be successful? I don't know. But I do know he will bust his a$$ trying.
can he catch? The only pass I saw him thrown at was dropped.
Boobie looks slow to me but I hope for the best. Otherwise, two spread backs, one Kendall Hunter,one Gore, Hunter on the wheel route out. Gore on the block then checkdown out.
