I'm a bit conflicted. The Detroit game showed how thin the WR corp is without Morgan and Edwards. Even with Edwards back and healthy, we are one injury away from becoming one-dimensional.
OTOH, Owens has been a cancer everywhere he goes. Still, there comes a time when a person matures and mellows. Harbaugh would not allow Owens to become a problem, IMO.
So the most important question is; does he still have something in the tank? I don't know. He was a good blocker which is critical for this offense. He also drops a lot of balls. Edwards has that rep as well. Can we afford two of those in the lineup?
Those are some of the reasons I'm conflicted. I'll leave it up to JH and Baalke.
