Edwards >>>> every WR on our roster.
yeah no

most overrated WR in the league

drops balls like its cool

yes he has had plenty of drops.... but the guy is a monster... great deep threat that will make the safeties play back or double him... he is just on a horrible team... players play better when they are on a better team..

if the niners have a chance to get him for cheap they should not be stupid and go for it.. Ive watched the guy when he was playing at U of M... Hes still got TONS OF UPSIDE...

He just needs a good system or even a good QB for that matter

Edward had that one really good season, the only one where he had 1000+ yards. In his other three seasons he has averaged 756 yards with 49 catches. Bruce's one year with us he had 835 yards with 61 catches. So Bruce >>>>>> Edwards

Bruce beats Edwards for one season and automatically u think hes better?? I love bruce, but at his age hes about done after this year...

You have to understand what edwards brings to the table in terms of our offense...
They will always plug up the box with 8 men if we have no deep threat because of gore..

Edwards will single handedly pull one of them back alone... And also take into effect that edwards is on a HORRIBLE TEAM.... recievers, QB's, and RB's are the first ones to suffer when this is the case...

I think he's better because he's done this plenty of times over his career, showing us that even at his advanced age he still knows how to play the game.

There can be an argument made for both sides. The problem is, how many more years can Bruce do this? Even if he is the better player now, because of his advanced age he can't be considered a longterm option.
