I said then that even with Crabtree and Boldin we don't have enough depth at a position we always have injuries at. You can't defend their inability to build depth at a position that has been lacking it for years. The proof is in the pudding. Every year we end up with below average WRs getting playing time, and every offseason we don't do enough to change it.
Phoenix, you seem like a smart guy and we've had this debate in at least 10 threads. We don't see it the same way, and that's fine. But for people like me, who believe that massively sub par WR depth is the reason we didn't win both of the last 2 superbowls (a position you don't agree with, but hopefully understand how one could take), watching this team suffer THE SAME WAY for a third year in a row (actually it's been 10 years, but these 3 are the only ones with rings on the line) is INCREDIBLE FRUSTRATING.
And even if you're right about Tank, I would trade Vance for Hunter right now. And would have on draft day too.
You'd trade Vance 's 5 catches for 66 yards (1 catch every game except Houston) for all of Hunter's 3 catches for 58 yards? I wouldn't. At the time we needed another TE to replace Delanie. While Vance seems pretty tough (ask Dick Sherman), Hunter had been frustrating his coaches with injuries, immaturity, and inability to mentally grasp certain concepts of the game. While Hunter has crazy talent, he's not the type of player the coaches want on the team.
