  • Jerry Rice on ESPN says Jacobs- "A little bit soft"



    Sorry if this was posted already, but I didn't see it. He said he's tired of seeing 180 pound guys bring Jacob's down. I can't say I completely disagree. Sometimes he does go down pretty easy, compared to Bradshaw.




    Can't wait to hear his reaction to this one.

      Never liked Jerry Rice, still don't. I don't recall Rice ever running over anyone.

        Jacobs is far from soft.




        You have to look at it like this, he is a big man, and there is alot of body for the defenders to hit.




        These 180 lbs corners rice is speaking of, are they tackling him at pad level? I think not. So if they tackle him at his ankles yes he can go down.

            I cant say I totally disagree. Jacobs doesn't run as tough as he used to.

              He's not soft. Opposing players FINALLY got sick of getting trucked, smartened up, and started tackling below his knees. Bradshaw is harder to tackle because of his lower center of gravity and GREAT balance that he has (plus his own toughness). If you tackle BJ above the waist, he is still hard to take down.




              Who cares whatJerry Rice says? Does today's 49er team need it's grandfather to do the talking for them?

                Soft wasn't the right word and I think Rice will end up regretting saying that. I still think at times he does get tackled easier than he should, and at times it is certainly because defenders are hitting him low.

                  [/quote]Wow common sense.

                  I will sat there been times he has gone down a bit easy, but a lot of it is as you said. Also another issue is the lack of line blocking for him to get started. Harder to take someone down while in motion vs just trying to get started.

                    Think its time our boy needs to start getting airborn a little bit more when hes got a 1v1 with a lb/saftey etc?

                      Jacobs isnt soft but I wish he'd pick his feet up when he runs.

                      He gets tripped a lot.

                      Burier: Yes.

                      Burier: Yes. I promise.

                        Yea. I heard him say it. I hope Jacobs uses it as fuel. Jacobs is pretty complex. Most people say he should only run north to south and just hit that hole. It sounds right due to his size but we all know that Jacobs gets plenty of yards running to the outside as well as his biggest gains were from the outside. Cornerbacks want no business in tackling on the outside and get steamrolled. But then when he tries to run outside, he sometimes gets run down by an ankle tackle from behind.

                        With 49ers great rushing defense and lateral speed, I think it would be better for Jacobs to run up the middle and hit the 49ers head on.

                            Sheesh, let's see how fast all of you can run carrying 260+ pounds of muscle. Jacobs isn't a FAST runner. He's a POWER runner. He plows into defenders and drags three of them 5-10 yards more.

                            Maybe if he fell on Rice he'd realize he ain't so soft.

                              Right, that should work. Have you ever seen him on 2 and short or 3 and short?
