On a positive note, we have a great WR core.

Isaac Bruce- Hill's go to receiver,

Brandon Jones- got the FA money, looked good in pre season, time to put some trust in Jones.

Josh Morgan- Can you imagine if he was in another offense. Look how good the Manning brothers make WR's look. Morgan can make plays, put some trust in him.

Jason Hill- See above.

Arnaz Battle- Can move the chains, has Hills trust

Spurlock- ??

Along with VD, Gore, Coffee, the niners can move the chains with this group. Jones is the speedster to stretch the field.

Lets give this WR core a chance to do more than block. Throw them the ball and lets see what they can do.


he didnt play

Is it the fact that they have a combined 280 yards receiving that makes them a good receivin core?

Yes and some of them are the fastest blocking linemen you have ever seen.
Prove it ....... Except for Bruce ...... we have a lot of potential and nothing else.

How do you know we have great WR's? Do we even have WR's??? All I see is the ball being thrown to our RB's and TE's
There's definite upside here, but calling them "great" is way too optimistic.

They have proved nothing as a unit. Brandon Jones has yet to, and may never, live up to his potential. Battle and Bruce we know about, but the rest of them need to show us more before we label them "great".
I'm very interested to see how Jones fits into our offense, should we start really airing it out.

What QB would do that? Robinson, Battle? He's supposed to be a deep threat and I'm not sure we have a QB to do that.
Even though he's at the end of his career, Bruce is still great. All the other WRs have yet to prove themselves, and they certainly haven't proven anything in the first three games. Hopefully this weekend though.

They might be "Floaters", but Hill can, and I use that word lightly, push the ball down field. Kinda down field. Maybe....sorta....
once our OL gives our QB time to throw then we will see their potential. It was great to see Morgan Burn Webster from the giants and the Cards at their home, and our qb (sullivan/Hill) had little time. Imagine with more time what our wr's and qb can do.

Hill and morgan should start with Bruce on the field alot. If Jones is good, maybe he can be our #1 or #2
