PFT Live: 49ers talk with Matt Maiocco, PFT Planet calls and tweets


We’re on the cusp of another weekend filled with games and one of the biggest is on NBC Sunday night.

The 49ers and the Patriots will face off and Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area will join Mike Florio on Friday’s PFT Live to talk about the contest. We’ll touch on other storylines in San Francisco as well, including Colin Kaepernick’s progress at quarterback and the suspension of running back Brandon Jacobs.

From there, we move on to our regular Friday routine. That means calls and tweets from PFT Planet with questions for Florio to answer during the program. You can send the tweets to @ProFootballTalk or give a call to 888-237-5269 to air your thoughts.

Whether you’ve got a question or not, you can watch it all live at noon ET.

  1. Hi, could you ask Matt Maiocco who brought Brandon Jacobs in, and why? Was this a difference of opinion between the front office and coaching staff? Was he just insurance in case Gore got hurt? Any truth to the rumor he gave signals to the Giants? Thanks!

  2. Yes, Jacobs was brought in as insurance and as a possible short-yardage specialist. Two things happened: Frank Gore has remained relatively healthy and still seems to have zip and Anthony Dixon seemed to have a fire lit under him, possibly because they DID bring in Jacobs and his job was in jeopardy. So, seeing as how Dixon has week-to-week value on special teams and Jacobs doesn’t play special teams, Jacobs hasn’t been on the active roster very much. The amazing thing to me is that Jacobs didn’t understand all of this. Also, Gore has gotten better at short-yardage situations. He’s even gone over the top of the pile a couple times this year, something he’s rarely done in the past.

  3. Jacobs was an ins. policy from day 1. He was working through injuries early on as well.

    His services were never needed and he got more and more disgruntled as the season went on.

    Harbaugh and Baalke actually had grounds to suspend him earlier on but they wanted to give him every benefit of the doubt.

    His last comments were the last straw.
