Brandon Jacobs and Ronnie Bartell

20 posts in this topic

Brandon Jacobs is having serious issues with the 49ers, how about we take him off their hands? Is it possible?

I also watched that Bartell guy with the Raiders at CB on Thursday night football. He made a pretty good INT in the Broncos-Raiders game picking off an underthrown Peyton pass. If coached up, I think he can make a good man CB.

Thoughts???

I wouldn't be objected to signing Jacobs somehow. I liked him in NY and the dudes a BEAST!

BJ is a little old for a RB, isn't he? I think with Ballard and Brown we are set at RB spot and Carter is a decent 3rd RB.

We need some serviceable CBs besides Davis and Butler.

I believe he is 30. Not a long term answer by any means.

The problem is the 49ers will not cut him because they are afraid he'll end up back with the Giants who would be in direct competition with the 49ers. There are other issues I'm concerned with as well where I think he wouldn't be the right fit. I do like Jacobs as a player though when he is actually playing.

To me, there is more upside in the short yardage with Brandon Jacobs than with Delone Carter, that would be the main reason. He also has ample experience between the 20s.

Trade deadline is over, right? How could we get them? Are you suggesting they get released?

Brandon Jacobs has now worn out his welcome on two teams because he is a 'me first' guy, can't split time, thinks he is the man still. He hasn't rushed for 1000 yards since 2008. And the 49ers aren't going to cut him anyway, so it's moot. But if he was a FA, I'd still say no.

Ronnie Bartell at least was released after the TNF game. Not sure what the reason was.

He is probably the one we could use more, IMO, and have a practical shot to get.

Here is the article about his release:

I was a bit surprised he was released after I saw him play in that particular game. But he had not been doing well in the earlier games which sealed the deal for him.

I liked Karim before he got released so I think this is a pretty good pickup. Quick, stout, low center of gravity.

I also liked him in the pre-season as well. He's a 4.3 guy so he's fast, but he never seems to get anything meaningful accomplished. He was like that in Jacksonville, and he didn't do enough to make our squad in the pre-season. Not sure what is holding him back

I saw where Jacobs has filed a grievance against the 49ers, where he wants either a ) to be reinstated, or b ) released. If he's released he would have to clear waivers, which is based on the 2013 draft order(2012 record) at this point, so the Giants would have first crack at him compared to the Colts.

We're a young team. We don't need Jacobs. He's Garbage now. He's like 3rd String right now

If available, I would say sign him up for the rest of this year. We need more depth at RB with the injuries, (and Ballard was pretty beat up last week). And we all know he is very capable of producing in short yardage situations. He's not happy in SF, so maybe he'd wake up enough to have that proverbial "chip on his shoulder" and help us come playoff time as well.. In this rare case, go for it..

But as FJC put it in his post..we probably wouldn't get him anyway..

Brandon Jacobs' career is over. These bruiser backs don't last long in this league, and I'm shocked he's even still playing past 30.

Definitely wouldn't want him...

As for Bartell, I would like the old Rams' Bartell, not the new Raiders. He's been a big disappointment for them.

      Got nfl ticket in 1998. Have all games on dvd after that.  Have maybe 3 - 4 games a year b4 that (i'm in pa) i love to re-live games in offseason. have some harbaugh, jeff george, dickerson, games in the AFC East. Some all-timers on opposition oo.  Barry sanders, marino, lway, montana. always find something cool or that i forgot when i watch an older game.
    • Peyton vs reggie miller
      I just wished Reggie showed up morein the NBA Finals vs the Lakers. They managed to mess him up with Robert Horry, that long armed defender.     In the NBA, free agency (which is dictated by market too) is a bigger factor than the draft. In the NFL, due to salary cap reasons, the draft is a bigger factor, IMO. But you don't have one guy touching the ball all the time like a QB. Peyton was like a point guard that could also shoot at a high level, think of it like that. His chances to shine were far more by touching the ball every time he was on the field. So this could be a case of apples to oranges comparison.   However, the Hoosier state has always been a basketball state, so Reggie's contributions, as significant as they may be, did not make the Hoosier state fall in love with basketball any more than it already had. But with Peyton, he did change the dynamic of how football is viewed in the Hoosier state. By virtue of that, he had a better impact.
    • Under the Radar Profile: Karl Joseph, FS WVU
      I'm not sure which safety would have a first round grade, or even a grade high enough that taking him in the first would be justifiable. Maybe Cash could creep into the first to a team like the Panthers at the end of the first.

      the farve comparison is silly. Go back and read what he said.
    • Under the Radar Profile: Deion Jones,LB LSU
      This is my 2nd installment of the under the radar prospect topics. I think I'll start keeping track of previous topics and may start providing links to them.   Previous Prospects: 1. Karl Joseph, S WVU     Todays prospect is: Deion Jones, LB LSU   Size: Listed at 6'1", 219 pounds   Games Watched: vs, Alabama, Eastern Michigan, Florida. All 2015   Strengths: The first thing you'll notice is that he's a tremendous athlete. Flys around the field and covers ground very quickly.  After Smith and Jack, he may be the only other coverage LB. Against Florida he made an INT while matched up against a WR. He breaks on the ball very nicely. He also had a pick 6 against Eastern Michigan where he played good man coverage and read the QB. Shows the ability to diagnose plays and arrives with authority. This is all in 1 year as a starter as he played behind Kwon Alexander. Voted team captain.   Weaknesses: Although he tries to arrive with authority, his inconsistent tackling technique often leads to failed attempts. Against Alabama he somewhat got trucked by Jake Coker on a QB keeper in the red zone because he tried to hit him instead of wrapping him up. Needs to add more functional strength as 2nd level defenders lock onto him and wash him out of the play. Needs to learn how to stack and shed. Will sometimes just run straight into a wall of blockers instead of using his quickness to set himself up. Diagnosis is good but needs to trust his instincts more. Listed at 219 which is really light for a LB.   Pro Comparison: Stephone Anthony although the lazy comparison would be Kwon Alexander. Like Anthony he's a tremendous athlete who can hold up in coverage but needs work in the run game. But he shows coachable flaws and the aggressive attitude you would want in a LB. Anthony I thought was drafted a little too high because he wasn't as much of a force in the box as a guy like Kendricks or Perryman. That's basically how I feel about Jones. But his upside is tremendous, just like Anthony.   Projection: Like Alexander he's listed as an OLB, so projecting him to WILL at the next level is easy. He also has the tools to be a 3 down ILB in a 3-4 as well. He needs work but can be a force on special teams immediately. Alexander went in the 4th round last year and that's where I see Jones. Late 3rd-middle 4th.
