  • Who would you rather retain, Jacobs or Manningham?

    Given the cap issue... both guys appear to be at risk of leaving the team... ... if we could keep one, who would it be?

      My heart says Jacobs because...well its Brandon Jacobs. But realistically we couldn't even run the ball last season. It only makes sense that some heads roll for that.

      On the other hand the passing game was top notch so you'd want to avoid tinkering with the support beams when it comes to that.

      So if I had to choose in the best interest of the team I'd keep Rio.

            Ok lets take it a step further. Mario is younger and has endured much less wear and tear.

              I can't believe I agree with burier, but yeah....30 year old back vs. 26 year old WR? C'mon, man...Leave money out of the argument and it's no contest.

                We have much better depth at WR than we do at RB. That said, I don't know if either will return. Jernigan will step up for Mario and Da'Rel Scott will step up for Jacobs.

                For a while I thought Jacobs would take a pay cut to be on the team, but now I'm not so sure...

                  Really, much better depth? I mean what do Barden and Jernigan have like 100 yards between them? I think we're in uncharted territory in both positions.

                    seriously! We have no depth at WR. I have no reason to write Jernigan off (No reason to assume he can hold down a spot either) but Barden is 100% pure garbage.

                    Id make him return punts.

                      I am assuming this thread was started asking who you would rather have not thinking about salary.

                      MM is the obvious answer. I mean it's not even close.

                      I love Jacobs but anyone who picks Jacobs is just picking with their heart and not their brain. I mean how many times did he get stopped on 3rd and short this year. I would love to have him back but not at the expense of keeping our current WR corps whole.

                        We have to factor in Mario's problems with route running as well.

                            I think the question about Jacobs and whether or not he's worth keeping is based on who's fault it is that his numbers are down. Personally I think the fault lies more with the O line and the terrible run blocking than in Jacob inability to run the ball anymore. I also believe that the team can pick up a good RB either in FA or the draft to replace Jacobs if thats what they decide, and I think Manningham might be harder to replace than Jacobs....
