Take the Pats, they have Randy Moss as a homerun threat, and 5' 9" 185 lb Wes Welker as a possession receiver.
The old 49ers didn't have a homerun threat per sae. In the West Coast offense, neither Rice nor Taylor ran many fly patterns. Rice's 40 time was 4.58.
BTW, we signed a Fullback off the Tampa Bay practice squad, Jehuu Caulcrik, who is pretty fast for a 6' 250lb fullback.
ya and jason hills 40 time was 4.32 at the combine, they are just numbers bro, there is a thing called game speed and being a home run threat has nothing to do with running fly patterns.
