Everything's in play for discussion at Niners Nation, SB Nation's 49ers community, with some of the blog's own writers spending Tuesday in the middle of the Super Bowl Media Day circus, giving the blog an unprecedented angle on some of the stories dominating headlines as the game approaches.
Niners Nation's David Fucillo talked with 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula and running back Anthony Dixon about game specifics and more general topics, like how Dixon managed to make the Niners' 53-man roster for the game despite some adversity.
Elsewhere around the blog, game specifics were the focus of many of the posts. The prominent 49ers run game was examined, with the bloggers wondering how the Ravens would aim to deal with an efficient attack that has helped the 49ers make the Super Bowl.
With Kaepernick, the extra dimension(s) of downfield precision passing, combined with the toolbox pieces of he brings with him from Nevada -- the read-option and more important, the pistol formation -- makes San Francisco's offense scary, frankly.
Along with another post that focused in on another game specific — how the 49ers could best attack the Ravens — Fucillo posted a big-picture item worth exploring, a collection of how each of the 49ers' 53 roster players made the team.
The current roster features 32 draft picks, 23 free agents, three players claimed off waivers and one player acquired through a trade. A team cannot build entirely through free agency, and the 49ers have generally done a solid job of finding the right parts to slot in around the strong base they developed through the draft.
