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.

    • Supe..I appreciate the effort ...... 3 things..come to mind   Of the 3 vets Boston would LOVE to give us for PG, ..Avery Bradley has quality..a former all-star Unless I have misread his birth date, Paul George will be 27 next season..... all next season...His birthday is May 2. He will eventually be better than LeBron because LeBron will decline..its inevitable. LeBron will be 33 next year   ..and if, we do your deal and, as you say, we are competitive in the East for the title in 3 years and, since he's a solid shooter with insane wingspan  Fultz proves to be even better than Paul George..(lets say that happens) .... ...Fultz will, in 3 years,  be one year from free agency and we will have to get a big name free agent or he will walk.(sound familiar?)   The whole thing is just kicking the can down the road.....and not trying to win now Eventually, you have to go for it. I believe, as I know you know, that time is now..next year..... 2017-2018  
    • To be fair, the team he was on doesn't exactly match up well against those better teams    But I see your point 
    • My tastes vary between Metal to Death Metal to Hard Rock to Rap to R&B.   So right now..... Favorite Metal tune all-time:  "Orion" by Metallica - even though no vocals, perfect blend of musicianship Favorite Death Metal tune all-time:  TIE!  "Biomech" by Allegaeon and "Proponent For Sentience II: The Algorithm"  by Allegaeon - I know you don't know them but take my word for it Favorite Hard Rock tune all-time:  "Unchained" by Van Halen (not Van Hagar) - so many by VH but it's my fav Favorite Rap tune all-time: "Nuthin But a G Thang" by Dre/Dogg - that intro tho; I don't smoke but if I did I could see myself doing it with this playing in the background LOL Favorite R&B tune all-time:  "This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan, although "Congratulations" by Post Malone is making a run for me right now
    • You just don't get the concept of the matching salaries required in NBA trades... If NY wanted to trade Carmelo to us they would have to take matching salaries.. .....they would then release the players with expiring contracts they didn't want.   Understand?
    • I've worked third shift a couple times prior to my current job, both at an airport and in a factory. I always had a hard time getting adequate sleep no matter how dark I made the room, lol.  Just knowing it was daytime threw me off.   My current line of work is hard on my sleep schedule....I never really go into a deep sleep, and get woken up often, even when I'm home. I've been an insomniac for years though, since high school really, friends used to call me a vampire because I was always up late into the night wrenching on my cars or just hangin out, lol.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
