I may be closed minded, but I don't exactly see how having receivers makes us better at running because I'm pretty sure that it's the running backs who do the running and not the wide receivers. Yes, I'm sure that teams would be frightened if we had four talented receivers and no one to pass them the ball (I'm not trying to start a Hill VS. Smith argument here, I'm just saying). We are a run first team. Gore is running the show out there. It will be nice to have Bruce, Morgan, (maybe) Vernon, and (again, maybe) Crabtree in instances when we need to pass the ball, but with our type of offense I don't see how Marshall would benefit. He's a top-5 receiver with 104 receptions for 1200-something yards. He would get no where near those numbers here. Thus, he probably won't want to play for us here.
Also, I bolded something. They had Mike Shanahan. We have Mike Singletary. They had Jay Cutler. We have Shaun Hill and Alex Smith. Maybe he'd benefit from a better environment, I don't know, but as of now we should stay away.
P.S. He's making 2.4 million this year, I don't know where you got the 400k figure from.
P.P.S Yes we don't have Crabtree, and we can't trade his rights, which I believe was the proposed idea to get Marshall. As of now, this thread is how Brandon Marshall is good and how he should come here just because.
Also, I don't have any genuine proposed ideas on how to get him and I'm glad to hear the opposed opinions but I just felt like throwing the idea out there. Sorry if I hit some sort of irritation nerve on my fellow 49er fans.
You haven't irritated me at all. Frankly, I just like debating this. This is a receiver who wants attention and big money because he knows he is good. I'm just saying that I don't think he'd want to come to a run-first team when he is a legitimate #1 receiver and option on a passing team. He obviously won't get last year's numbers in Denver with Orton behind center, but I don't think he would get them here either, and that's something he wants because he knows with big numbers comes a big payday. But I suggest (not to be obnoxious) that you look at the video posted in the other Brandon Marshall thread. He's unhappy, so he's acting like a little b***h during practice. I'm sorry? Are you 9 years old or a grown man. I can understand he's upset, but really grow up. It was really funny to watch though
