Originally posted by Phoenix49ers:I don't think the talent is there. Last year was a different story, in lieu of Jenkins they could have taken Kendall Reyes or Derek Wolfe. This year....the top 3-4 players will likely be gone. At that point, you're either reaching for guys, or hoping and praying on projects such as Hunt. I'd say f**k it, make the offensive super explosive and go light teams up like a Christmas tree on a regular basis.
This team needs more playmakers on offense, that much is clear. The 49ers lost to Baltimore after having the ball on the 7 yard line and were unable to punch it in after 4 attempts....that has to change.
Ya know i read an interesting article preseason on the ravens. It was talking about the thr ricr extension and signing jacoby jones. It said essentially that the team was changing internally. The defensive monster of the early 2000s were in the twilight years and the future face was ray rice, flacco, jones. Not thst the defense isn't great but people think of defense when they think of the ravens but now it flacco and rice. Jones is on dancing with stars. Teams have to adapt and make the best with what they got. Im not saying we should give up kn defense but it blows my mind people think our defense is worse off thsn our offense. I mean were talking about drafting DEPTH at DE with the 1st picks and we dont even have a #2 wr. Some teams have 3-4 wr that could be #1. We have 1and somehow thats enough. Too many to some people who think we should cut manningham, moss, and williams. We have a young qb, oline, #1 wr, and a great TE. We need to get some quality yard producers because we hav the potential to be a top5 offense.
