Set @ WR? Why cause we have a young WR with alot of upside? We are not set at receiver, in fact we've never been since we lost T.O.
thats what im saying. even though crabtree may very well work his way up as one of the best in the league, it is teams that have 2 good WRs that have deadly offenses.
Colts: When they had both Wayne and Harrison (cant forget clark), and the niners have VD which fits in that same role of a TE that can be used as a WR.
Steelers: when they had both ward and Burress (and they still have holmes instead of Burress who is solid)
Cardinals: Boldin and Fitz were such great compliments to each other, and created the best Core in the NFL up to this year. Marshall and Crabtree are very similar to those 2 in my opinion.
Pats: obviously Moss and Welker are also a lethal threat.
Packers: Driver and Jennings are a very underrated WR core, but they are also up there with these teams, and look how explosive there offense is. Must i also mention the Ryan grant is overrated, and that gore is much better than him. so our O would be even better with the addition of Marshall. (although they have rodgers and we have smith, lol, so never mind)
i dont see how some of you guys can be against this when you look at these offenses and the success they had/are having with these type of WR tandems.
