Let's be honest. That's your opinion.

no, no not really

it is tough for recievers to stand out on a run-first team. fact.

it is difficult to stand out with 4 targets. fact.

kaepernick has a habit of not spreading the ball around. fact.

Besides boldin the next person he was competing with was kyle Williams...fact

13 careers receptions in a little over 3 years...fact

Let's not act like he was a diamond in the rough buried in the roster behind all-star talent.

None of the supposed superstar WR's the 49ers cut have done s**t in the NFL thus far. fact.



"OMG, the 49ers let Nathan Palmer go, idiots, he's going to be a great player in the NFL."


Nathan Palmer is now selling insurance.


"OMG, the 49ers let Chris Owusu go, he's going to be a good player for somebody."

Owusu is now on the practice squad of Tampa Bay, a team that is 0-7.


"OMG, I can't believe the 49ers let Lavelle Hawkins go."


He was unclaimed for most of the season and has yet to make a catch with San Diego.

What is with some of you making excuse after excuse for underachieving, mediocre WRs?

This guy is not exactly "young" either, he's been in the league for awhile now and has produced next to nothing. Not a 49er coaching or Kap issue, dude just isn't good.

Jesus, Moore didn't even beat out Kyle friggin Williams in practice yet some of you geniuses think that he was some underutilized gem buried under the system. Gimme a break. More like he was the weakest link that didn't earn a starting position or a roster spot. It's just that simple. And don't get me wrong, I loathe Kyle, I don't even want to see him on the field again after his London meltdown, and I want him gone as soon as MM & Crabs come back BUT can you imagine how bad Moore had to be if he couldn't even beat out Fair Kyle ? Our receiver depth is just scary thin it's not even funny. Anemic and abysmal.

I still think Hawkins was the WR we should have kept.

Yes, that is my opinion, and not a fact.

Yes, I know he's probably "selling insurance" right now.

But as far as I can tell he was the best play maker we had outside of Boldin.

What are these facts you speak of? Cold hard facts have no place in the Webzone.
im not saying the dude was the next coming of christ. im saying that he didnt get a fair shake. im saying that the 49ers organization has some serious f**king problems when it comes to wide recievers. Coaching, absolutely terrible pass-play design, and god know whatever the f**k else. theyve managed to draft exactly one reciever worth a s**t in how many years?

Maiocco's Twitter: The @MiamiDolphins announce the signing of WR Marlon Moore, waived last week by the 49ers.

Thank you, that is exactly my point.

Just you wait, before we know it, Jon Baldwin might be history too.

Is interesting you brought up the point being a run-first team. Actually, last season after Kap took over under center we weren't exactly a "run-first" team in the truest sense. I think Daniel Jeremiah presented some stats comparison between 9ers last season and this season and the split between pass and run was 51% run and 49% pass, in other words pretty much 50/50 before our passing plays dramatically declined this season. We were definitely in the process of moving to a much more balanced offense until this season.

The problem is Kap pretty much only developed a rapport with Crab almost exclusively. As such, after Crab went down, we had almost 0 passing game left once teams decide to key in on Anquan (which the Packers totally failed to do). The point I am trying to make is if Kap can spread the ball around more amongst different WRs, 1) we would probably have a stronger passing game and 2) younger WRs or WRs lower down on the depth chart would have a better chance to improve and perform. 4 targets in 6 games is less than 1 target per game, that is hardly sufficient evidence for one to come to a definitive conclusion that a given wideout is a complete scrub.

Just to give you an idea how lob-sided the stats are, have a look at the following :

Anquan - 38 receptions out of 62 targets in 8 games
Vernon - 29 receptions out of 47 tragets in 7 games
Marlon - 1 reception out of 4 targets in 6 games
Jon - 3 receptions out of 6 targets in 4 games

As shown, is more than apparent if you are not named Anquan or Vernon, you pretty much have next to no chance to succeed. I don't know whether this is totally on Kap or due to the playcalls, but one thing we do know is that some of these secondary receivers have been open after further review when the initial blame or reason given was noone got open. But, to your point, either Kap or G Ro are not comfortable with these other targets when our primary targets are shut down, we have since moved back to being a run-first team as a result, not necessarily we had to. And if we don't start throwing to other targets, I just don't know how anyone else can produce for us. The problem is Mario is already on his way back with Crab not far behind, so I guess the situation will only become worse for Baldwin.
Thanks rascal, for bringing some facts to the table instead of hatefire

Maybe cause Marlon wasn't getting open? We're really still cheerleading for this scrub?

And yes, the 49ers are a run-first team under Jim Harbaugh.

Poor Marlon. Gets signed by his hometown team only to be cut and go back to his prior club and sucked into that situation. Kind of glad he isn't on our team just because he is one less person for the media to question about his first stint in Miami. Already people ask Jim about Martin, it would be annoying as hell if a backup WR had to keep answering questions about a situation on the other side of the country.
