San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs was frustrated with his team yesterday.
On Thursday, Jacobs sounded like a new man after talking things over with 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.
“I spoke to Coach Harbaugh a couple times the last couple days,” Jacobs said, via the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat. “We ironed it out. We got it done. I understand where Coach is coming from.”
“I’ve played through worse injuries than I have now,” Jacobs said. “But I have the rare opportunity where I have a chance to get healthy, 100 percent healthy. Coming into this season, I was injured, I was going to be down for a long time and they kept me. …
“There aren’t a lot of guys in the league who are 100 percent healthy. A lot of those guys are playing because they have no choice. In my case, I don’t have to, and again, that’s what I meant by a ‘rare opportunity.’ ”

The New York Giants are heading out to California this weekend to take on a familiar foe in the San Francisco 49ers.

Extended highlights of the 49ers rout against the Bills.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith told the media that he doesn’t believe his sprained middle finger will be an issue for Sunday’s game against the Giants.“It’s doing all right. It’ll be fine,” Smith said, per the San Jose Mercury News. “I might tape it for support.”Sounds like Smith will be good to go against the Giants.
The San Francisco 49ers enter this weekend’s rematch of last
season’s NFC Championship Game against the New York Giants healthy. The team
had three players listed on their injury report, but all are expected to play.

And to think the coaches at Central Michigan University wanted Watt to become the next Joe Staley.
Staley began his college career as a CMU tight end but was shifted to left tackle. The move was so successful that San Francisco selected Staley in the...
