Because this debate keeps going on and on and on. We're going to leave Jason Hill out of this one, figuring that he was a 3rd round pick and his upside is too promising to just let go of.
Who do you want taking up the final WR spot on the 2009 San Francisco 49ers, assuming the other guy gets cut/traded?
Arnaz Battle - The gritty vet. Often injured, but reliable in the clutch. Can also return punts well enough. Can throw the ball effectively on option/Wildcat plays. Currently the 49ers' longest tenured WR. Fans either love him or hate him. Made Trent Dilfer occasionally look decent.
Dominique Zeigler - The acrobatic practice squad survivor. Opportunities have been few, but he has capitalized upon them. Not an answer in the return game. A Webzone fan favorite. Got a mention on national TV during MNF. Has a "Z" in his last name.
you know, everyone keeps mentioning Battle/Robinson/whoever else in wildcat/option plays. When have the niners ever used them in that regard? McCarthy, Turner, Hostler, Martz - none have used the option play.

Just because they haven't, doesn't mean they won't in the future. But I see your logic. I just posted the pros and cons of each player and backed away from the keyboard.
