    Lawrence Okoye? The one Harbaugh said was the most beautiful man he had ever seen?

    I’d be very surprised if Morris and Spillman weren’t signed to the practice squad after they clear waivers. Big part of our special teams last year. Plus Morris runs a 4.3 40, everybody loves speed

    I didn’t know Harbaugh felt that way about other men.

    Don’t waste a roster spot with Gabbert, San Francisco.

    49ers get valuable roster advice from a guy with the user name of “largent80100”. Thanks.

    Only reason they kept Josh Johnson around is because Gabbert hurt his shoulder last game.

    So Gabbert made the team? I would be worried if I was a 49’ers fan. Kaepernick goes down and your season is over.

    hawk troll, lawrence okoye is a project and he will be in the PS for at least one more year.. get ur head straight dude.. he was there last year too.. and will be there this year until he is up to speed on football intellect. SMH..

  8. ninerdynasty says: Aug 30, 2014 6:47 PM

    Spillman is not ps eligible. Daryl morris might be.. cant remember how many games he was active last year..

    Gabbert is gone the minute Boone returns.

  10. thegreatgabbert says: Aug 30, 2014 6:55 PM

    @piglbert – Yeah, Blaine is just holding down that right guard spot until Alex Boone returns.

    I would rather have Glen Winston on the team than LaMichael Lames. Lames just is not a RB or a football player for that.

  12. 49erfan44 says: Aug 30, 2014 7:04 PM

    Damn I wanted to keep Winston. Gotta respect the way that guy runs.

  13. ctiggs says: Aug 30, 2014 7:04 PM

    lawrence will go back to the practice squad.

  14. shakespeare22 says: Aug 30, 2014 7:06 PM

    Jon Martin made this team? It did look like this team is getting soft in the preseason.

  15. rajbais says: Aug 30, 2014 7:25 PM

    Blaine Gabbert made the team?????

    Sign Terrelle Pryor now!!! He’s a glimpse guy that can be made into a better passer.

    Gabbert just needs to go away!!! Forever!!!

    I’m glad thegreatgabbert, aka Blaine’s mom, moved to the San Fran boards. What she wont tell you is that, when Blaine isn’t throwing at WR’s feet, he’s “injured”. Thumb, shoulder, hamstring, you name it. When the pressure’s on, Blaine will roll around on the ground.

    Eat the $2 mil 49ers. Don’t let this guy anywhere near the football.

  17. gawdyourteamsucks says: Aug 30, 2014 8:03 PM

    Sign BJ Daniels. Cut Gabbert, eat the 2 mil.

  18. blackhawks2010 says: Aug 30, 2014 8:11 PM

    Good lord, Gabbert has a roster spot in in SF? Wow. Enjoy the 9-7 years Niners faithful.

    Go Seahawks

    We dont need advice from 1-hit wonder Seaderrall fans. Worry about the target on your back from the rest of league and their players.

  21. faithful209er says: Sep 1, 2014 7:01 PM

    BJ Daniels is available? I didn’t catch that. (Just like how nobody caught any of Blaine’s “passes”.) Bring Daniels back, NOW!
