Once the season starts, I want Bruce, Crabtree and Morgan to be our top 3 WRs. I like Hill and Spurlock after that. The last WR spot to me should be between Battle and Ziegler. Seeing that Ziegler is much younger and that we already have Isaac Bruce, a veteran, I just really don't see the need for Battle anymore. Why is that so out-of-the-sky? You make it sound like an X-Files episode or something.
Since Battle is the third WR right now, you obviously do not see something that everyone in Western hemisphere sees. Go back and read the beat writers articles this past week on Battle. He's a very important part of this team.
Leaving Battle off the list definitely qualifies as an X-Files moment.
Maybe I'm just tired of 6-10 and 7-9 and I want people who are game-changers, like Boldin and Fitzgerald. I like Battle but I just don't see where he fits on THIS team. I know he's listed as the 3rd WR, but again, I think he's expendable. Of course, this is taking into consideration that Crabtree is under contract, which he isn't yet. If he remains unsigned, then yes, I think we have no choice but to keep Battle as our #3.
