How did Jerry Rice do in that department? People seem to get so hung up on speed, you'd think 49er fans would understand it's not all about speed.
A guy who runs a 4.3 with sloppy route running isn't as big a threat in the passing game as a guy who runs a 4.5 but with great routes.
If a DB cannot tell which route you're running you have a clear advantage and in an offense like WCO a split second where the DB hesitates and the WR makes his break on the route is all that's needed. Then it's all about angles. How many times did Rice get caught from behind?
Not putting Sanu on that level of course but anyone thinking because he's not a burner he cannot get open is crazy.
