an under thrown pass and a throw away pass....???
That's a QB problem not WR problem....
3 passes to Crabs in the SB. Three. III. Thrice. Tres. We drove all the way down the field from our own 20. Then ended up first and goal. One run to James. 3 passes to Crabtree. Superbowl championship slips away....Then in the Seattle championship game Kap thought Crabs one on one against Sherman was an ideal situation to attempt a pass over the top of Sherman. NO. Just no. Sherman has made a career of making people pay for attempting that. If we had a bigger/taller/stronger wide receiver we'd have a better chance with a jump ball. The pass shouldn't have even been thrown. Not to Crabtree with Sherman on him. Maybe if the play was set up different and it was Boldin one on one with anyone but Sherman....
I get pissed off just thinking about it. We need a tall WR who can jump with a wide catch radius. It should be obvious. If we had a Mike Evans type player the last 2 seasons we'd be SB champs.
We could have had Too Tall Jones, with Shaq on his shoulders and it wouldn't have changed the outcome of the final play of last season .
You can have CJ lining up for us but if our QB doesn't learn to make the right throws, it just won't matter.
I'm with you, I'd love to see a big target WR, but our history shows that we don't want to incorporate that into our offense for some unexplained reason...
