He does do everything TE, H-Back, WR...He's great at blocking and running routes out of the backfield especially. He's not elite in terms of sheer athleticism, but to our team he's great.
Those blocks against Suh? 'Nuff said. That catch in the EZ to win that game 'nough said. The TD catch to split the TB CBs and S and catch the ball in the EZ is another. Go look at the games on NFL rewind and see what I'm talking about. He was just not the same after the broken jaw. He's so valuable to us. Still, like all players, he makes mistakes like the dropped perfect ball in the EZ against the Lions.
He's not perfect, but he has been great when we needed him too. I hope we can resign him next year too.
Man, I like DW, and I love our Niners, but great players don't get the dropsies and fumblitis at clutch moments in games. He is a good football player, but there is no question that the position could be upgraded.
He's not great. What great #'s has he ever put up. To top it off he's one of the smallest TE's in the league. 6'0" 240 lbs. Tiny by todays standards.
