Morton has failed to develop A.J. Jenkins, Brandon Williams and Johnson a wr from USC he had coached. All other position coaches on this team have done a better job and I wonder why Harbaugh has not found a new Wr Coach.
Latimer or Moncrief sound good to me.
You mean Kyle Williams, right? Two of the three players were late round picks - and it's very hard to turn late round picks into pro bowl players.
Crabtree has contributed nicely to this offense, why isn't he getting credit for developing him? Anquan Boldin really stepped up with the unit banged up. Patton was injured, but really stepped up late in the season.
Baldwin was a bust, and that has continued in SF. AJ Jenkins production matched Vance McDonald in 2013, so he didn't make a splash in KC.
I used to be one of those people that wanted to replace Morton earlier in the off-season. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized Morton hasn't really gotten an opportunity to truly develop some early round draft selections.
Think about it...the team runs a 2 TE-2WR or I formation personnel schemes the majority of plays, and you have established starters with Boldin and Crabtree, and a pro bowler in Davis.
I'm excited to see an early round draft prospect this year and watch his development under Morton. I think that's the true test.
