  • Robinson is out?
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.

  • He's hurt and is status is unknown. Apparently he went to see a specialist today, which doesn't sound good.

    It got me to thinking....we don't have another FB on the roster. I suspect we might use Miller as an H back and go with a lot of single back sets. Taua would be nice, but he is IR'd.

    Fullback Michael Robinson also is seeing a specialist for his wrist injury, according to Carroll.

  • I'd put McCoy at fullback. I've seen that dude throw some filthy blocks.

    Nvmd. If its just a wrist injury just put a club on it and he'll play.

    I really don't think these guys would make good FBs at all, especially Washington.

  • Likely would use a TE...we are also low in the WR group with injuries. None of these guys has an IR type injury, so we have to take care in bringing in people as we have to cut people to do it. It will be interesting to hear Pete's presser tomorrow to find out how all these guys are doing and if they make any moves.

  • Actually DO put a 280-300 pounder in there like SF does. Just blast a hole...or a TE will have huge play action implications

    Necessity is the mother of invention

    And I think we need something different on our running plays...crack backs...traps. Something instead of marshawn up the middle...hope he isn't out but if he is???

  • The problem with putting a TE or Sweezy in there is that they have to be good at identifying the reads from the ZBS and leading the RB into the correct hole. It can be done but I wonder how effectively it would be.

  • Not good. He's a big part of our running game. Remember how Lynch did when Robinson was out last year? Hope it's nothing major.

    This isn't a novel idea either, because even tho they had the late great Walter Peyton, the Bears use to put William "THE REFRIDGERATOR" Perry in at the goal line to pound the rock LOL.

    I thought Tua was on the IR after the team cut him. Will have to go look.

    EDIT: Yep, he is on IR

  • This is where I would love to see Morrah, but Mlller will work.

    I say in all seriousness though? Turbin... He is the PERFECT mold, plus he can get a lot more touches.

  • My point was more like

    Do something different...even I it's wrong

    When we put a big blaster in there....they will cheat up in box and we can then go over the top...

    Run straight ahead and blast somebody...who cares about zone blocking at that point. The FBs job is to blast the first guy in the hole I think we are over thinking the suggestion. Give teams so tape to look at

    Houston is very successful because they line up with the same formation and run 6 different plays from it. We run one! Pardon me...3...lynch right, lynch left, lynch up the middle. Or wait...a quick screen with the DB in press coverage!
