49er's trying to do what the Giants did to the Skins?

You guys think Pierce and Hasselbeck gave the Giants an advantage last week. Well, apparetnly the 49er's bye into this idea.

POSTED 1:34 p.m. EST, November 1, 2005


With starter Alex Smith injured and backup Ken Dorsey out as well, the Niners have signed former Giants quarterback Jesse Palmer.

Palmer, a former Florida quarterback, was taken by the Giants in the fourth round of the 2001 draft. He played in 2004 under the mid-level one-year restricted free agent tender, and the team signed him to another one-year deal prior to the season.

But newcomer Tim Hasselbeck nudged him out for the No. 2 spot, and the Giants opted for giant-sized Jared Lorzensen at No. 3. By all appearances, Palmer's decision to star in ABC's The Bachelor last year got him off on the wrong foot with coach Tom Coughlin, who was hired not long before Palmer took an offseason break to participate in the reality show.

Palmer most recently was linked to the Bucs, who were planning to sign him if they hadn't acquired Tim Rattay from the Niners near the trading deadline.

Palmer gets a crack at his former squad on Sunday, when the Giants face the 49ers. Although Cody Pickett will get the start for San Fran, Palmer will be in position to feed the coaching staff plenty of information regarding his old team.
